Deity Pooja Room in house  


Topic starter

Hare Krishna ?

we are aware Radha GokulNanda is everywhere but just want to check does this matter which direction we face when we prayer to deity at home in pooja room?

please advise and help us understand.

@girish-chopra Also to thing about: If it was important to face the right direction when we pray then Prabhupada would have said so. But he did not mention this to my knowledge. Vaastu can be used in our lives but it is not essential.It does not matter a lot. The Lord is known as Bhava grahi Janardhan meaning He is more focused on the intention rather than the detail of the activity.

It all depends on your mood and level of surrender, if you feel committed to serving the Lord, then the formalities and directions should not limit you. But if you believe that the direction will help you in your service than you should do so as your heart speaks to you, as Krsna is sitting in your heart 'isvarah sarva bhutanam hrdese arjuna itistathi.'

Krsna knows everything, so more important than the direction is your mood and intention while you pray and serve to Krsna. The intention is what matters the most, as Krishna will read that, "patram puspam phalam toyam," If one offers Me with love and devotion a leaf, a flower, fruit a water, I will accept it.

@harika_ thank you mataji this is really helpful and our doubt has been cleared immediately 

hare karishna🙏🙏

You are most welcome, please feel free to share more questions if you have any 😊 


Most Indian homes have a prayer room or altar. A lamp is lit and the Lord worshipped each day. Other spiritual practices like japa - repetition of the Lord’s name, meditation, paaraayana - reading of the scriptures, prayers, and devotional singing etc… are also done here. Special worship is done on auspicious occasions like birthdays, anniversaries, festivals and the like.


Each member of the family - young or old - communes with and worships the Divine here The Lord is the entire creation. He is therefore the true owner of the house we live in too. The prayer room is the Master room of the house. We are the earthly occupants of His property. This notion rids us of false pride and possessiveness


The ideal attitude to take is to regard the Lord as the true owner of our homes and us as caretakers of His home. But if that is rather difficult, we could at least think of Him as a very welcome guest. Just as we would house an important guest in the best comfort,so too we felicitate the Lord’s presence in our homes by having a prayer room or altar, which is, at all times, kept clean and well-decorated


Also the Lord is all pervading. To remind us that He resides in our homes with us, we have prayer rooms. Without the grace of the Lord, no task can be successfully or easily accomplished. We invoke His grace by communing with Him in the prayer room each day and on special occasions

@the-spiritualist Brilliant advice! I love it and you got it point on, "The ideal attitude to take is to regard the Lord as the true owner of our homes and us as caretakers of His home."

We are mere servants of the servants of the servants, and our home is away to welcome the master of our hearts into our homes and share our unconditional love with the supersoul through our service. 

Thank you 🙂
