A Kuber Statue is integral to Vastu arrangements around the home as it attracts wealth and prosperity into the household!
Vastu is an integral component of Indian homes. Regardless of the architecture or the kind of decor, a Vastu-compliant home is what a majority of Indians seek. Moreover, a well-designed home following Vastu principles is prosperous, with loving relationships and a healthy atmosphere.
You may have heard numerous things about the placement of a Kuber statue in the house to welcome abundance and prosperity. Well, there are a few more elements to consider that must accompany the Kuber statue for efficacy. But before we delve deep into the how-to’s and why-so’s, let us understand what Vastu and Kuber mean when they are independent of each other.
What is Vastu?
Vastu, or the Vastu Shastra (translating to the “science of architecture”), is an Indian architecture system based on ancient texts that describe the design, layout, measurements, ground prep, arrangement, and spatial geometry principles.
In modern times, Vastu Shastra guides modern architects and planners to organize spaces rather than in the creation of a ground plan.
Lord Kuber and The Role of Kuber Statue In Vastu
Kuber, also known as Lord Kubera, is the Hindu God of wealth and the god-king of the semi-divine Yakshas. He is also referred to as the Dikpala of the North direction and a protector of the world.
As for his traditional depiction, he has the complexion of lotus leaves and a pot belly. In addition, he has a dwarfed stature with three legs, only eight teeth, and a singular eye, and is decorated with numerous jewels.
He is also depicted as holding a mace, along with a pomegranate or a money bag, representing wealth and prosperity.
He once defeated the Nagas– the guardians of treasures- which is why some Tibetans believe the Mongoose symbolizes his victory.
Many religious texts also consider him the owner of the world’s treasures, and he lives in the divine city of Alaka, which is redolent of glory and splendour.
Following similar beliefs and faith, a Lord Kuber statue is often gifted to new homeowners and office owners to encourage a prosperous atmosphere and attract wealth into the home or business.
5 Ideas To Place A Kuber Statue For Luck and Prosperity
There are numerous things to remember before keeping a Kuber Statue at home.
Kuber Statue Directionality:
A Lord Kuber Statue can be ideally kept in two directions as per the guidelines of Vastu Shastra. The first of which is the Northeast, the auspicious place where the pooja mandir or pooja room is situated. The statue must face the west direction where the devotee would face east while offering prayers.
The second is placing the statue in the North. As the Himalayas in the North is his abode, this direction is a natural setting for the figure. First, ensure that the Kuber statue is placed in the North, facing the South, where the devotee would face the North when offering prayers.
Kuber Statue Quality:
Avoid using large statues for this Vastu placement. Likewise, it is advised to avoid figures that are hollow. It would be best to remember that breakable or fragile materials such as Clay, Plaster of Paris or Ceramics are not used to prevent damage.
Instead, you can opt for statues made from brass or bronze that can withstand cleaning and exude divine energies.
Kuber Statue Devotion:
It is essential to regularly offer Naivedyam to the Lord Kuber to attract wealth and prosperity. One can show devotion to the Lord of Wealth by chanting the following prayers or Mantras.
- Kuber Dhana Prapti Mantra: Om Shreem Hreem Kleem Shreem Kleem Vitteshvaraya Namah ||
- Kuber AshtaLakshmi Mantra: Om Hreem Shreem Kreem Shreem Kuberya Ashta-Lakshmi Mama Grihe Dhanam Puraya Puraya Namah ||
- Kuber Gayatri Mantra: Om Yaksharaajaya Vidmahay, Vaishravanaya Dhimahi, Tanno Kuber Prachodayat||
Kuber Statue Items and Offerings:
Ensure that the areas surrounding the Kuber statue are kept clean and well-maintained on a regular basis. Keep a pot or bowl full of coins in front of the Kuber statue to attract wealth. Offer flowers and incense in front of the statue, along with lit lamps.
Avoid Keeping These Items Around The Kuber Statue:
When placing in Pooja Mandirs, avoid keeping the statue on par or above Lord Shiva statues or Shiva lingams. Lord Kuber is an ardent devotee of Shiva, and his statue is always placed at a lower level in relation to Shiva statues.
Do not clutter the space with bulky or broken furniture. Also, remove any shoe racks and ensure that toilets are not placed in this corner during the design and construction of the home to avoid negative energy in the space.
