Bhoomi Puja is a ceremony performed to inaugurate a new site for the construction of a home or building. This ceremony is conducted in strict conformance to Vaastu Shastra, the ancient Indian science of structures and architecture.
According to Hindu beliefs, by performing this ‘puja’ the right energy and natural elements surrounding the site can be propitiated. Usually the time chosen is in accordance to the ‘Vaastu Muhurtam,’ which is the time when the ‘Vaastu Purusha’ (energy surrounding the site) is believed to be in full strength.
For the Bhoomi Puja a ritualistic 64-part diagram denoting the ‘Vaastu Purusha’ is drawn in the north-eastern part of the construction site, using seeds and colored powders. Each part in this diagram denotes a deity. Chants and offerings are made to each deity. A pit is dug nearby and the first brick or stone is laid in it. An effigy of ‘Vaastu Purusha’ is made from straw and burnt to ward off evil spirits.
