Soil has been given a very important place in the history of India. People have been using clay since time immemorial. Whether it is clay toys for children or clay items to make a hearth post, clay has been important in everything. In the olden days, people also used earthen utensils for food and drink.
The fun of drinking tea in an earthen kulhad is not available in a normal cup. The water kept in the pot provides as much coolness, hardly any filter will be able to provide. That sweet-smelling fragrance of the soil pleases the mind. Artifacts made of clay look even more beautiful.
Today, even though the modern era has come and plastic and metal have replaced clay toys and artifacts, but clay is of great importance in Vastu Shastra. In Vastu Shastra, it has been told about some such things made of clay, which keep happiness and prosperity in the house. If you also keep these earthen things in your house, then your luck can also shine. Let us know about those things made of clay.
Today, even though freeze has taken the place of earthen pot, but no one has the taste of earthen pot like water. Not only this, the water of an earthen pot is also very beneficial for health. Keeping an earthen pot in the house brings happiness and prosperity in your life.
According to Vastu Shastra, north direction is considered to be the direction of Kubera. That is why we should keep an earthen pot in the north direction in our house. Make sure that the earthen pot is always filled with water. Along with this, keep changing its water every few days. By doing this all the negativity ends. Along with this, happiness, prosperity and peace comes in your home.
Vastu Shastra says that keeping an earthen lamp at the place of worship in the house is auspicious. Although people nowadays use only metal lamps in their homes but worshiping with earthen lamps has a different significance. It is believed that if an earthen lamp is lit at the door of the house and Tulsi every day, then there is always happiness and prosperity in the house.
To maintain peace in the house, even in the festival of Diwali, earthen lamps are lit on the courtyard, door, and roof of the house. It is believed that lighting earthen lamps brings happiness and prosperity in the family. Due to the old customs, people buy earthen lamps, idols, and utensils.
The elders often say that in this era of modernity, lighting earthen lamps on the auspicious occasion of Deepawali is a symbol of Indian civilization and culture.
In which direction should the things made of clay be kept?
According to Vastu Shastra, the north-east direction of the house is called the north-east and the south-west direction is also related to the earth element. If you keep things made of clay in both these directions then you will definitely get benefits. If you want, you can also place artifacts made of clay in both these directions for decoration.
However, you have to keep one thing in mind that if you keep light things in the northeast, then keep heavy things in the south-west direction. This will keep the balance. According to Vastu Shastra, we should worship the idols made of clay even in the temple of the house. It is considered very auspicious.
