What is Bhumi Pujan?

The word “Bhumi” refers to the earth. It is both the mother and the caretaker of the entire world. It not only provides us with food to eat, but also shelter to live in, water to drink, and air to breathe. Rivers, lakes, and roads—all run through the earth at some point. It provides a lot for us without asking for anything much in return. For this reason, it is often referred to as the mother in the religious texts of Hinduism. Therefore, it is imperative that each one of us accord it the utmost respect.

Before beginning any kind of construction, it is important to take part in a Bhumi Pujan ritual. This is one of the best methods to indicate that you respect the Earth. The vast majority of Hindu Shastras advise doing so.

Bhumi Pujan, sometimes called Neev Pujan, is a Hindu ceremony. This puja is performed by people in order to appease Goddess Bhumi and Vastu Purusha (the deity of directions) and to show respect to them. During Bhumi Pujan, we also pay homage to the five constituent parts of the natural world. According to the beliefs, performing Bhumi Pujan during Shubh Muhurat will rectify any type of dosh on the land as well as any faults it may have. In addition to this, it creates Grahas (planets) on the landowner’s side. On the contrary, if the landowner does not do Neev Pujan before Griha Nirman, there would be a significant number of obstacles.

Bhumi Pujan Vidhi: How to Perform Bhumi Pujan or Neev Pujan for Griha Nirman

According to Vastu Shastra, you should always perform Bhumi or Neev Pujan in Shubh Muhurat following the Bhumi Pujan Vidhi. You should conduct the Bhumi Pujan in the northeast direction of the plot. Also, you should start the construction of the house or office from the northeast direction.

Bhumi Pujan Vidhi says that you should draw a 64-part diagram in the northeast direction of the construction site. The 65-part diagram symbolizes Vastu Purusha. Different parts symbolize different deities. It is always best to perform Bhumi Pujan with a known Pandit Ji.

Pandit Ji will chant the mantra for each deity to eliminate negative energies and obstacles coming on the way to house construction. After this, you need to lay the first brick in a pit on the construction site. You must follow this Bhumi Pujan Vidhi to ensure a Vastu-compliant house construction.

Auspicious Months, Nakshatras, and Lagnas for Bhumi Pujan

Like Griha Pravesh, Vehicle Purchase, and any auspicious work, you should also perform Bhumi Pujan for new house construction in an auspicious time. According to Indian astrology, there is the right time for Bhumi Pujan. And you must take it seriously if you do not want obstacles coming on the way during or after construction. 

According to Hindu Calendar and Indian Astrology, the best months for Bhumi or Neev Pujan are as follows:

  • Vaisakha (Baishakh)
  • Agrahayana
  • Pausha
  • Phalguna

Some astrologers also suggest Sravana, Maagh, Bhadrapada, and Kartik for Bhumi Pujan or Griha Nirman Puja.

It is not that you should perform Bhoomi Pujan anytime during these auspicious months.  There are certain auspicious dates, days, times (muhurats), and nakshatras that you should consider beforehand.

Auspicious nakshatras for Bhumi Pujan or Griha Nirman are as follows:

  • Margashirsha
  • Pushya
  • Anuradha
  • Uttara Phalguni
  • Uttara Bhadrapada
  • Dhanishtha
  • Uttara Aashaadha
  • Shatabhisha
  • Chitra
  • Hasta
  • Rohini
  • Revati

To establish a foundation for construction, all fixed nakshatras like Uttaraphalguni, Uttara Aashaadha, Rohini, and Uttara Bhadrapada are auspicious.

In addition, Margashirsha, Revati, Anuradha, Shatabhisha, Chitra, Dhanishtha, Hasta, and Pushya are also good nakshatras.

So, if you start house construction during these months, you may not get the blessings of the Lord Vishnu. That’s why Hindus avoid these months for marriage.
