What is bhumi pujan?

Bhumi pooja / pujan is a Hindu ritual performed in honour of Goddess Bhoomi or earth and Vastu Purush (the deity of directions), before beginning the construction of a new house. The five elements of nature are also worshipped during the bhumi pujan, also known as Neev Pujan. Bhoomi means mother earth. Usually, the Bhumi Puja is performed in the north-east corner of the construction site. According to Vastu experts, the digging at the site should begin in the north-east corner. The ritual of Bhoomi pujan is performed before beginning the construction of a house or land tilling for agricultural activities.

For the bhumi pujan, a ritualistic 64-part diagram symbolising the ‘Vaastu Purusha’ is drawn in the north-eastern zone of the construction site, using kumkum and seeds. Each part in this diagram is related to a deity. Mantras are chanted and offerings made, to each deity. A pit is dug and the first brick is laid in it.

Astrology and Vastu experts look at the Hindu Panchang, that is, the Hindu calendar, for muhurathams. It is advisable that you consult an astrologer to choose the perfect muhurat for your bhumi pujan and house construction. An astrologer generally analyses your birth and horoscope details, to arrive at a date.

Some people are not aware of their date and time of birth, and place of birth details. In such cases, the priest may decide the auspicious date to start construction of house using the name raashi. The shubh muhurat can also be decided based on tithi, nakshatra, etc.

These days, you can also consult experienced astrologers online. However, it may still be better to get in touch with those you know or those recommended by peers and family members.

Bhumi pujan significance

Bhoomi or mother earth is worshipped along with other deities before the construction of any structure. This practice is known as Bhumi pujan. The ritual involves laying the foundation stone on the ground and invoking the blessings of God.

  •  The bhumi pujan is done to appease the mother earth or Bhumi and Vastu Purusha (the deity of the directions) and please the five elements of nature, namely earth, wind, fire, sky, and water.
  • Performing bhumi pujan also helps in eliminating Vastu doshas or defects and remove any negative energies that may impact the land.
  • The ritual provides protection to the building or land and all its inhabitants against accidents or similar events.
  • It helps attract positive energies and purifies the place while inviting good luck for the family members of the new house.
  • The Bhoomi pooja is also performed to ask for forgiveness from the living beings that reside under the ground for unintentionally harming them during the construction activities.

There are multiple opinions, when it comes to the shubh muhurats for construction of new house. The general consensus is that construction of a house should not start during Ashada Shukla to Kartik Shukla. It is believed that Lord Vishnu sleeps for four months from Ashadh Shukla Ekadashi and wakes up to Kartik Shukla Ekadashi. During these months, believers usually do not go in for marriages, house construction or even a new business.


Is Makar Sankranti good time for Bhumi Pujan?

Makar Sankranti, also known as Uttarayana, marks the entry of Sun into the Makara Rashi (Capricorn) from the Dhanu Rashi (Sagittarius). It is an important festival celebrated in many parts of the country and is considered as an auspicious day in the Hindu calendar. The festival falls in the month of January. Most people prefer to buy a house or perform Griha Pravesh on Makar Sankranti. As per Vastu experts, there is no good day for laying the house slab in January 2023. You can consult an astrologer to know the auspicious dates for Bhumi puja.

Pakshas to be avoided for the bhumi pujan

Paksha means a fortnight or a lunar phase in a month, as per the Hindu lunar calendar. Avoid Divaskarma, Shraadha and Hadpaksha for performing the bhumi pujan.

Tithis to be avoided for the bhumi pujan

Avoid fourth, ninth, and fourteenth tithis as they are not regarded auspicious for the Griha nirman or bhumi puja.

Impact of lunar constellations

Where is the bhoomi puja performed on the construction site ?

Bhoomi puja is performed in the north-east corner of the construction site, as it is the revered space. The digging, or tiling of the site is always first done in the north-east corner as the level here has to be lower than the remaining site. The excavation will make the north-east low and south-east comparatively high, which, according to Vastu, yields good results

Directions for Bhumi Shilanyas

The foundation stone, referred to as Shilanyas, is laid for the first time during new house construction. As per Vastu, it is important to find out the exact location and right time to dig out the foundation. The foundation is chosen based on the auspicious muhurat and the name of the property owner.


Bhoomi pooja 2023: How to prepare for foundation worship?

  • The process of Bhoomi pooja begins with digging a pit in four corners of the plot and in the middle. This pit is also required from the foundation.
  • Sprinkle water on the pits and apply the aasana. All the family members must gather for the Bhoomi puja rituals.
  • Before beginning the griha nirman worship, family members must chant ‘Hare Ram Hare Ram, Ram Ram Hare Hare, Hare Krishna Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna Hare Hare’.
  • Distribute water, soil, medicine and put them in an urn.
  • Decorate the urn with flower garlands and write ‘Shri’ on it. Burn incense.
  • Write ‘Shri’ on five stones using vermillion. Spread the seat in the northeast corner.
  • Take the pegs and stones to all five pits.
  • Place an idol of bull, horse, man, elephant and snake on each Kalash and begin the puja. All the urns are worshipped.


What is the Bhumi pujan Vidhi?

Most first-time home buyers often grapple with the intricacies of bhumi puja rituals and look up to parental and spiritual guidance. We suggest you continue to do so but also remember some key facts. 

The detailed Vidhi differs from region to region. The Vidhi has the following steps:

  • Identification of the spot for the Bhumi Pujan. The spot must be cleaned after taking a bath. Gangajal is used for cleansing and purifying the spot. Make the 64-part drawing, that represents different deities, in the northeast corner of the construction site.
  • Bhumi puja must be performed by a priest. A qualified priest must perform the rituals and his presence is mandatory to eliminate Vastu dosha and negative energies.
  • Face the recommended Vastu direction. When performing the bhumi pujan, one should sit facing towards the east direction. The priest usually faces the north direction while the person organising the puja faces east.
  • Worship of Lord Ganesha. Bhumi Pujan begins with prayers to Lord Ganesha, the remover of obstacles. Blessings of Lord Ganesha’s are sought to avoid any hurdles that can pose a hindrance to the progress of the project.
  • Idol of snake and other deities. An oil or ghee lamp is lit; after seeking the prayers of Lord Ganesha, an idol of the snake god and a Kalash are worshipped. The logic behind the worship of the silver snake is that Sheshnaag governs the earth and is a servant of Lord Vishnu. Hence, you would be seeking his blessings, asking him to preserve your house. By seeking the blessings of the snake God (who lives in the Patala Loka), one has to take His  approval for beginning the construction works.
  • Kalasha Puja. The kalash on the other hand symbolises the universe. A ‘kalash’ is filled with water and mango or betel leaves are placed on top of it, with an inverted coconut. A coin and betel nuts are kept in the kalash to offer prayers to Lord Ganesha and Goddess Lakshmi. The Kalasha Puja is done to channelsie the divine energy and attract prosperity and positivity on the particular bhumi.
  • Bhumi Pooja: On the auspicious muhurat, the main ritual is conducted, including the Ganesh Puja, followed by a havan.

Invocation of the Sheshnaag is usually done by chanting mantras and by pouring milk, curd and ghee. You will also see that the priest puts a betel nut and a coin into the urn so as to invoke the blessing of Goddess Lakshmi.  As the puja progresses, the God of directions, Dikpalas, the snake god or Naga and the family deity known as the Kuldevata are worshipped. When the land is dug, it is done so by chanting the nag mantra. It is good to distribute sweets or even fruits among those gathered for the bhumi puja. 

Digging: The foundation stone or brick is laid after digging a small portion of the land.

Offerings: During the bhumi puja and chanting of mantra by the priest, one should offer items including flowers, incense sticks, kalava, raw rice, sandalwood, turmeric, vermillion (Roli), supari, fruits, and sweets.

Dos and don’ts after buying land

  • Compound wall: Before constructing the house, one must build the compound wall. Ensure that the height of the southwest part of the wall is higher in comparison to the other walls of the house. The east and north sidewalls can be shorter than the south and west sides walls. One need not perform the Bhoomi Pujan before constructing the compound wall.
  • Plants: You can grow plants on the construction site. After taking possession of the property, cultivate and grow plants on the land.  Before the Bhoomi puja, clear out the land of any dirt, including roots of dead plants.
  • Cow: It is considered auspicious to keep a calf or cow on the land. Allowing a cow to eat grass from the land is regarded a sign of good luck.
  • Bhoomi Pooja: Performing Bhoomi Pooja is considered very fruitful since it adds happiness and prosperity to a person’s life.

If you are unable to begin the construction after buying a plot of land, due to some unavoidable reasons, make sure to clean the central portion of the plot. Also, consult a Vastu Shastra and astrology expert. Construct a slope that moves towards the north or east direction.

One should avoid the starting of the house construction if the lady of the house is pregnant.


Who should perform Bhumi Puja?

The Griha Nirman or Bhumi Puja Vidhi should be performed by the head of the family along with his wife. The puja must be performed in the presence of a priest who can recommend the auspicious Bhumi pujan muhurat and guide to complete the puja successfully.


Bhumi puja mantra

Various mantras are chanted to please the gods and invoke auspicious positive energies that reside in that bhumi.

The most important mantra of a bumi puja is ‘Om Vasundharaya Vidmahe Bhutadhatraya Dhimahi Tanno Bhumih Prachodayat’, which means, ‘Let us chant for Bhumi Devi, the provider of all things; we pray to her to bless us with abundance and fortune’. There are other mantras which are recited, such as Ganesha mantra to remove obstacles and Gayatri mantra, to bestow life with happiness and nullify negative energies.

Best months to start house construction in India in 2023

Best month to start construction of new property

Depending upon the season, construction activity either picks up pace or slackens. You would have come across many contractors who are eager to start the house construction during the autumn season. The reason being, it is easier to pour concrete over soil that has not frozen or hardened due to the winters and neither is it so hot that the risk of overheating may do more harm than good. Autumn (that is, from late September to November), therefore, is a good time to start the construction of your home. It is also a good time for contractors to finish much of the exterior work and then, gradually focus on building the interiors of the new property.

Best month to start renovation of property

If much of your focus is on the interiors, that is, if you are looking at renovation or remodelling largely within the house, winters may not be a bad time. In fact, it is a practical approach too. Labourers working at your site can find it less strenuous to work during the winter months, rather than taking up the hard work in the summer months when the temperature typically reaches even 45 degrees Celsius. However, ensure that cost overruns do not take place. For areas experiencing excessive air pollution, winters may not be too good.

Is spring a good time to begin construction work?

Your contractors will be able to tell you better. If the ground is not wet or frozen, it should be a good time. In India, most contractors prefer doing work in the house’s interiors during early spring but prefer utilising the spring months if it is a project that would take months to complete.

Constructing your house in the summer season

If you are expecting delays in completing the house construction, do begin in summers. Longer days in summers helps workers utilise the daytime well. It may be very hot but even after taking breaks, the daylight lasts over a longer period and can be utilised better. It is good to consider this time for projects that would take more time to complete.

It has also been seen that given that a number of people undertake construction activities during the early summer, the price of raw materials also increases. You may want to weigh the pros and cons and make a decision.

Why is the post monsoon season the best time for construction work?

In India, the most preferable time for construction work is the post monsoon time from September to March. Rains cause interruptions in the construction activities or impact the construction quality. Thus, it is an ideal time for laying starting new house construction. During this season, the RCC, masonry, flooring and plaster works attain their potential service life. The temperature around 24 and +/- 5 degree C are regarded cool in India, allowing hydration of maximum amount of cement added in the concrete mix.

Best time for house construction is during winter

The ideal time for house construction is during the dry season, usually from October to March in most parts of India. Thus, winter is a favourable time that can be considered for new house construction. Some experts consider that structures constructed in winter months, which are usually dry, are better constructed when compared to those constructed during summer. Moreover, the low temperature in winter keeps the cement in the concrete mix hydrated. After it is applied during construction, the structure must not be exposed to rain, ensuring construction quality and making the structure durable.
