Where there is constant worship of Lord Ganesha is going on, there you can find good luck and accomplishments always. To please Vastu God, there are some methods related to Lord Ganesha, following which, the Vastu defects of the house can be removed.
1. Lord Ganesha Brings Prosperity
For getting prosperity in career or business, it would be effective to worship Lord Ganesha in the color of vermilion (sindoor). For getting peace, happiness and flourish, it would be effective to worship the idol or image of white-colored Lord Ganesha along with keeping a permanent picture of this Ganesha at home. It would bring more luck if you keep the image of Lord Ganesha in lying or sitting posture to worship at home. For getting good luck in dance or other art forms, it would be effective to worship the image or idol of Lord Ganesha in dancing form. It is auspicious to place the image or idol of Lord Ganesha on the north or east side of the room.
2. Keep Lord Ganesha With Trunk On Left Side
It would be better to keep at home, the image or idol of Lord Ganesha in sitting position or with the trunk turned to left. Lord Ganesha with trunk turned towards the right-hand side is obstinate and it is very difficult to please him. Such Ganesha idols will bless the devotees only after a long time of worshipping.
3. Place For Lord Ganesha At Your Working Place
If you are planning to place an idol of Lord Ganesha in your working place, then keep an idol where Ganeshji is in standing posture. This can help in maintaining harmony and enthusiasm for doing work. But keep attention that the image of Lord Ganesha has got both legs touching the ground. This can bring stability to work. An idol or picture of Lord Ganesha can be kept anywhere in your office but take care that it is not facing towards south or southwest direction.
4. Modhak and Rat Are The Favorites
The favorites of Lord Ganesha are modhak (a snack) and his vehicle, the rat. So ensure that the images of modhak or ladoo and rat are there in the picture, along with Lord Ganesha.
5. Keep At The Main Door
If a picture or idol of Lord Ganesha is kept on the front main door, then keep care that another picture or idol of Lord Ganesha is placed on the other side of the wall so that the back of both the pictures meet on both sides of the wall. This can remove any Vastu defects in the house.
6. For Dwaarvedh
Dwaarvedh is a Vastu defect that is occurring when there is any tree, temple, pillar or road in front of the main door of the house. In such cases, place an idol of Lord Ganesha in the sitting posture at the main entrance and special care should be taken that the height of the idol is not more than 11 fingers.
7. Make The Swastik Sign
Swastik sign is considered as the figure of Lord Ganesha. Swastik is used in Vastu Shastra also to remove any defects. Swastik is a maha-mantra to get rid of Vastu defects as well as it is beneficial to maintain peace in the house. Mix sindoor or vermilion with ghee and make the Swastik sign in that place of the house where there is a Vastu defect or Vastu dosha. This can reduce the effect of the Vastu dosha.
8. Benefits Of Lord Ganesha Made Of White Ark Root
On the day when pushya nakshatra comes on a Sunday, place an idol of Lord Ganesha made of the white ark in the house. This can bring a lot of prosperity and wealth. On the previous day, invite Lord Ganesha to come home with prosperity, wealth and occult and on the next day that is, Sunday with pushya nakshatra, bring and place the idol of Lord Ganesha made of the white ark in the northern corner of the house.
