Home Sutra: Why Tortoise Idol Is A Must-Have Décor Item
All of us have heard as kids the popular tale of the tortoise and the hare. There are many valuable lessons to be learnt from this tale. The tale highlights how the power of determination and hard work can help achieve results despite challenges. Tortoises and turtles, which belong to the same family, are characterised by their slow and steady pace and hold great importance in Vastu as well. It is precisely for this reason that decorative tortoise and turtle-shaped jewellery are becoming quite popular these days. It is believed that keeping an idol of tortoise at home fulfils one’s wishes and aids in steady progress in life. However, there are certain points which should be kept in mind when placing such objects in the house.
Tortoise idols should always be placed facing the east direction. The south-west corner is ideal for crystal or earthen tortoise idols. Figurine of tortoises made of wood can be placed in the south-east corner of the living room. Metallic tortoise idols must be placed in the north or the north-west corner.
- Your living room is the ideal place to keep decorative tortoises.
- Tortoise idols can be placed in water. Ensure that the water level is enough to immerse the feet of the tortoise idol. Add coloured stones to the container which will attract peace, harmony and wealth in the household.
