Bhumi Pujan Muhurat 2023: Know the Dates, Vidhi, Rituals, and Mantra of Bhoomi Pujan

Reading Time: 4 minutes

Mother earth is referred to as Bhoomi. Bhoomi is a generous giver who provides us with food and shelter without expecting anything in return. As a result, we must treat it with the highest respect. Bhumi Pooja/Pujan, according to Hindu mythology, is a ceremony conducted to appease and give homage to Goddess Bhoomi and Vastu Purush (the deity of directions).

Bhumi Pujan is the initial step in the construction of a home, office, factory, or other structure.

Before beginning the auspicious job of building a house, Bhoomi Pujan is usually performed to please God and pray for their blessings. This is crucial to ensure that not only God but also the Grahas (Planets) are with you as you embark on one of life’s most important endeavors.

During Bhoomi Pujan, pandit ji not only worships the deities, but also the five elements of nature. The bhumi pujan vidhi must always be performed in the northeast direction of the plot, according to Vastu Shastra. Also, make sure that you start building the house from the northeast direction.

Bhumi Pujan Muhurat in 2023

According to astrology, there is a proper time for Bhumi Pujan, just as there is for everything else.

As per astrology, the best months for Bhumi Pujan are  Baisakh (May), Margshirsh (December), and Phalgun (March)

Apart from them, if the astrologer recommends it, the months of Shravan, Magh, Bhadrapad, and Kartik are also good.

There are particular times and favorable nakshatras for Bhumi Pujan that one can consider starting the construction during these months.

In addition, if you’re looking for Shubh muhurats for house construction in 2023, make sure it doesn’t start between Ashada Shukla and Kartik Shukla. Lord Vishnu is said to sleep from Ashadh Shukla Ekadashi to Kartik Shukla Ekadashi. So, if you begin house construction during this 4-month time, you may not receive Vishnu’s blessings.

  • To begin, a location on the land is chosen. This location is largely in the site’s northeast direction. You are responsible for keeping the area tidy.  

  • Cleanse and purify the area, pour some Gangajal on it.
  • After that, a pandit ji will undertake the necessary rites to ensure that Vastu Dosh, or false energy, are removed from the construction site.

  • The Snake God is worshipped by chanting mantras and pouring milk, ghee, and curd on him, according to the ceremonies.

  • Goddess Lakshmi is similarly honoured by placing a betel nut and a penny in the Kalash. During the rite, the God of Directions, Dikpalas, and Kuldevata are also worshipped.
