Open the gateway to abundance, happiness and wellbeing using Vastu Shastra tips for the main entrance of your home.

For a house to become a home filled with love, peace and harmony, it needs to radiate the right kind of energy. According to Vastu, each home comes with its own energy. A person residing in a house comes under the influence of its specific energy, which in turn influences him in one way or the other. Entrance of the home is the place from where energies, either positive or negative, enter and exit a house. If the right kind of energy enters the house, then it will bring with itself harmony, good fortune, happiness, health and wealth – making it a positive home. This is why Vastu Shastra gives great importance to the main entrance of the home.

An auspicious main door as per Vastu can become a harbinger of health, wealth and prosperity.

The entrance of the home should be aligned with Vastu Shastra to make sure the arrival of Goddess Lakshmi (the Goddess of Wealth & Prosperity).

According to Vastu Shastra, the main entrance of the home is not only the entry point for the family and guests, but also for energy. The main entrance is the mouth of the house which brings in outside energies which if positive, will make the residents prosper and vice versa. Here are certain do’s and don’ts regarding the main entrance of the home:

  • Avoid a house with South-West facing entrance as it brings struggles and misfortunes. If your house already has a door facing South West, fix two Hanuman ji's tiles (with the Gada in his left hand) outside the door.
  • The entrance facing South-East is said to bring in illness, anger and court matters. Two stickers of Gayatri Mantra should be fixed on both the sides of the door from outside to counter this defect.
  • Entrance facing West brings in active energy & energy of enjoyment. That is why in Japan, Geisha houses are always facing West.
  • Generally entrances facing East, North, North East are said to be good.
  • The main entrance of the house should be larger than the other doors entering the house. The main door to your home should be constructed with superior quality wood and look the most appealing.
  • A two shuttered main door opening inside and clockwise is auspicious.
  • It is advisable to have two main doors in a home, one for entry and another for exit having two and one shutters respectively. Exit door should be smaller than the entrance door.
  • The right combination of Vastu colours should be used for the main entrance or door. Lighter colours in combination with some amount of green are recommended.
  • It is good to decorate the house’s entrance with auspicious signs such as OM or the Swastika.
  • The main entrance door should not be slanted, sliding, or circular.
  • There should not be any underground tank, septic tank, or canal under the main entrance.
  • There should not be any abandoned, wrecked buildings in front of the main entrance.
  • Don’t keep garbage or dustbin near the main entrance as they emit negative energy.
  • Avoid the main entrance facing intersecting roads.
  • The main door should not be situated facing directly the main door of another house.
  • Main door should have threshold as it avoids loss of wealth.
  • Shoes should not be kept in front of the door, but to the side.
  • There should be no obstructions in front of Main Door such as staircase, big trees etc.
  • Avoid temples or any other religious place directly in-front of main entrance.
