Clean your home
Throw the useless old things in your home as they obstruct the positive energy from entering in Diwali is the time to de-clutter. Clean the entire house, including those neglected corners, which are seldom attended to. Master Deepak Ji suggests If possible energize your apartment either whitewashing or applying a fresh coat of paint, as the final step towards giving your home a brand new look.
Sprey salty water
It is believed that salt absorbs all the negativity from air, and purifies the environment and helps you be happy and content. Mix rock sea salt with water and spray this saline solution at all corners of the house. Place rock salt (filled in glass bowl) in all the four corners of your home or office. Mix salt in water and spray this salted water in each and every corner of your home on regular basis, especially around the time of Diwali Master Deepak Ji advices.
Light up your home with colored lights but right colors in right directions
For decoration, using specific colored lighting bulbs for different directions are as follows: North: Put extra blue, yellow and green colored light bulbs for decorating the house. East: Use more of red, orange and yellow light bulbs. South: Decorate with white, indigo, violet and red colored light bulbs. West: Add more yellow, orange, pink and gray light bulbs.
Decorate the main door
Embellish the main door with a ‘Bandanwars’/‘Torans’ or door hangings made with mango leaves and garland of marigold flowers to bring good luck, happiness and success to your home. Your main door must look bright and inviting for Goddess ‘Lakshmi’ to enter your home and shower her blessings. The small footprints which are usually drawn with a mix of rice flour and vermilion symbolize the goddess’ entry into your home but make sure they are not placed haphazardly. These footprints also bring in positivity. An image of ‘Lakshmi’ and ‘Ganesha’ placed on the front door enhances positive energy and dispels negativity. Painting Swastik sign of 9 inches by Red Sindhur on the main door of the house destroys all the economic difficulties and impediments.
This Diwali, address the following directions to achieve positivity and specific results:
Master Deepak jis suggestions are in North: keep a water feature will help you start new projects. South: Hang rock mountain pictures that inspire you to achieve more. North-East (Ishaan Kona): keep a bowl of fresh water on top of a 100 Dollars note for your business’s prosperity. Keep the North-Eastern area and Northern direction of your house always clean, open and light to ensure economic stability. West: keep a clay pot with yellow flowers will increase savings.

South-West: Keep your bank/investment papers in this sector facing towards North. East: Put a picture of rising Sun to achieve name and fame. South-East: Put nine stick bamboo plant to grow wealth.
Set your Worship room correctly and Place the idols right
According to Vastu Shastra, the North direction is ruled by lord of wealth, ‘Kubera’ and is known as ‘Kubera-Sthanam’. Hence, Master Deepak ji advices that ‘Lakshmi Worship’ should be conducted in that location. Use new cloths to clean the photos or idols, and use them for this purpose only. Put pictures of water and ‘Kalash’ in the East or North of the ‘Worship’ room. The idols must not face the door of the ‘Worship’ room or one another. Do not keep photos of those who have passed away in the ‘Worship’ room. Do not keep two idols of the same god at the ‘Worship’ place. Place idols in the North-East direction in the ‘Worship’ room. Place the idols of the gods on a bright red new cloth.
When placing the ‘Diyas’ on the parapet and the boundary walls, ensure that they are in multiples of (4) four, as each ‘Diya’ represents the reigning deity of Diwali i.e. Goddess ‘Lakshmi’, Lord ‘Ganesha’, Lord ‘Kubera’ and Lord ‘Indra’ and you would not want to separate them! Make a ‘Mangal Deepak’ and place it in the center of your house. This will balance the five elements that our body is made up of. To make a ‘Mangal Deepak’, take a broad glass bowl, place a glass tumbler upside down in it, now put some glass marbles or stones in it, fill the bowl with water, sprinkle some flower petals in the bowl and light five floating ‘diyas’ in it. For wealth, prosperity and fortune make sure that you place a diya in the North-Eastern, Northern and Central zones of your house after Lakshmi worship.
These Vastu tips from Master Deepak ji are basically a way to make your Diwali celebrations as auspicious as possible and would certainly contribute towards bringing positivity in your household and bestow health, wealth and overall prosperity to all now and forever.
