The universe is one of the most beautiful creations of nature. Everything can only be seen in the light of truth. As with every human subject, there are rules and regulations that govern it. The art of worshipping, too, has key principles to maximize its potential.

Many people overlook a separate pooja area when planning their house. However, we cannot ignore the importance of creating a space for GOD. We are creating a space for worship, which will allow us to receive positive vibrations each morning, and this energy will help to energize our environment and body. We will be more productive at work, which will lead to greater progress, prosperity, and peace.

It is important to design the room carefully as meditation can help you gain positive energies. It should not be in the wrong direction. You will feel sluggish no matter how many meditations you do. Before designing a pooja space, there are some rules you must adhere to.
