Investing in a home is a big thing for many of us. For some of us it is once in a life time investment. Therefore we leave no stone unturned while selecting a house for ourselves. While selecting a house we give utmost importance to the location and size of the house. Sometimes people find that they have the best house or office but still success and peace of mind eludes them. This may be due to some drawbacks in the place that is vastu dosha which may be responsible for the troubles and obstacles. Vastu shastra is one of the best ways of getting rid of these doshas.
How to remove Doshas:
One may wonder if there is a magical way of getting rid of these obstacles. When we think of doing away with obstacles then one Hindu deity that comes to our mind is Lord Ganesha ! He has the power of doing away with all the problems in our lives and bringing health, wealth and happiness. He is appropriately called Vighanaharta (विघ्नहर्ता) or the one who removes all the Vighnas or obstacles from our lives. On any good occasions like weddings Hindus first perform the Ganesh Pooja so that everything goes smoothly. That is why, in mumbai ganesh chaturthi is celebrated with pomp and show. During these days everyone brings ganesha at home for few days.
Therefore placing paintings or statues of Lord Ganesha in ones office or homes should also help get rid of problems and troubles. But Ganesha is depicted in different postures in the paintings and statues like the standing pose, sitting pose, dancing pose etc. Therefore one might wonder which type of posture is appropriate. Also placing these paintings in the right direction is very important in Vaastu Shastra. Most of the postures like sitting, standing etc are common. One more pose of Lord Ganesha is the dancing pose where he has either of his legs in raised position. According to mythology Lord Ganesha used to perform for his parents Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati.
There are some Vaastu specialists who say that Ganesha in any posture is auspicious as it is the Lord who has the power of removing obstacles. Some vaastu experts suggest that if there is a water body in the form of a river or drain which is flowing close to your house or even your office and that too in anti clockwise direction then a dancing Ganesha painting should be placed on the North eastern corner. The Ganesha in this case has to be west facing. Dancing Ganesha increases the positivity if placed in the South East direction. It is considered to be good for those people who are associated with creative work. However one must never place the painting of dancing Ganesha in the prayer room.
As it is not possible for us to view your place/home/office so we suggest in order to get the correct advice for placing dancing ganesha at home or office it is therefore best to consult an experienced and prolific vaastu consultant nearby. He/she will check the positions and directions of your house or office and will advice accordingly but always keep in mind that placing dancing ganesha in wrong direction is not good. Instead you can place sitting or standing ganesha in home or office.
