Home Sutra: Vastu Tips To Make The Perfect Rangoli
We Indian love colours. As a result of this, our festivals are never complete without making Rangoli patterns inside and outside of our homes. The ancient practice of drawing colourful designs and patterns on the floor, usually performed by women in the family, is believed to be quite auspicious. The art of Rangoli, which has been passed on through generations, brings out the artist in every one of us and boosts the festive spirit. Impressive designs and vibrant colours are sure to enhance the beauty of the house, leaving the guests awestruck. It is important to adhere to some Vastu principles while making rangoli to get the maximum benefits.
Here’s a quick guide:
- Designing a rangoli attracts benefits of the earth element and positive energies in the house.
- Footprints of Goddess Lakshi should be designed at the entrance of the house.
- Do not draw symbols such as OM and Swastika or images of deities in rangoli made on the floor, particularly near the doorstep.
- Use traditional materials such as sand, flowers or rice powder mixed with colours to make a rangoli. Avoid using golden and blue colours together.
- Handmade rangoli should be placed in the north direction.
- Ready-made rangoli should be placed in the west direction.
