Bhoomi Pooja: Importance, Procedure and Vastu Dates for Construction 2019
Bhoomi puja or Bhu Puja is a ritual performed before constructing a house. Basically its a puja offered to the “Bhu Devi” or “Dharti Maa” before we start digging the plot. But the question is why and when it started? Yeah the obvious answer to this questions is “its a custom practised from long back” but how they came into existence and how they became our custom?

India - A Spiritual Destination
India is a diverse country with multiculturism where people believe in spirituality from the core of their heart. We worship our god in the form of stone and wooden statues and it is believed that god comes as a guest resident when “pran pratistha” is done to these statues.
This is the reason India is treated as a pilgrimage destination all over the world. Here “amarnatha gufa” is worshiped because iced shivlinga is treated as Lord Shiva and puri jagannath temple sees huge crowd as Lord Brahma himself gave the structure and texture to the deities wooden idols and many more such evidences are there which proves our beliefs and conscience on the almighty god, “Bhoomi pujan” is just an example of those beliefs.
The Motherly Earth
We Indians call our country as “bharat maa” and our land as “dharti maa”. We love and respect her as our own mother and in such a country bhoomi puja is worth doing. We believe that like us she also feels the pain when the land is being dig out. May be it seems illogical to some people but my question to them is if anyone strikes him/her what is the feeling? Don’t you feel the pain?
We certainly do and same applies to our Earth. Bhumi puja is performed to pay respect to our motherly Earth and take her permissions before digging the land. This puja is also performed to please Vastu Purush who is assumed to be the god of Vaastu to bless us with positivity and growth, Lord Ganesha is worshiped as he is the initiator of the world and Laxmi puja is also done to take her blessings to be healthy and wealthy in our new home.
Bhoomi Puja Procedure
As per ancient Hindu scriptures it is believed that below the earth “patal lok” is there which is governed by Sheshnag who is the server of Lord Vishnu. Sheshnag is assumed to be the saviour of Earth and so a silver snake idol is worshiped in bhumi pujan followed by “kalash puja”. Sheshnag gives strength and longevity to our buildings whereas “kalash” denotes our universe in which betel nuts are kept to offer our prayers to Lord Ganesha and Goddess Lakshmi.
Bhoomi Puja Importance
When a land is being digged and construction is done it results into homelessness of many insects, animals and other creatures. To be free from their curses and also to remove their negativities bhumi pujan holds significance. In India, our farmers too offer prayers before doing cultivation on any piece of land as their gratitude to her who let them grew the crops.
Indian’s may be called as superstitious and irrational but we firmly believe in our culture and traditions and this makes us class apart from all others.

How important it is to perform bhoomi puja, before starting a construction. By little knowledge I have i'm placing my point. During the construction there are small creatures and the Bhoo Devi (Bhoomi) which get hurt. So to be free from their curses and also to remove negativities bhumi puja is done.
