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).
