Energies constantly keep going out and coming in front his main entrance door. Hence, it is highly essential to maintain and take good care of this gateway at all times. Right from the proper positioning and location to its proper maintenance, the front door should be clean, beautiful, and attractive and obstruction-free both from outside as well as inside.

The main door is also regarded and referred to as the ‘Simhadwaram’ or the lion’s entrance as it is the principal entrance and access to the house. it is also the mouth of the Vastu Purush, the face of the house, and hence should be looked after in the same manner as we look after our own face. Here are a few Vastu tip as to how we can keep the main entrance door well decorated and well kept at all times.

  • 1. The main entrance door should be the most attractive door of the house. It is believed that Goddess Lakshmi enters the premises whose main doors are beautifully maintained. The same applies for positive energy as well. Hence, it is mandatory to keep the main entrance door neat, clean and tidy and well adorned at all times. 
  • 2. The main door should be decorated with auspicious symbols like the image of the kalash with coconut on it, Goddess Lakshmi’s ‘charan’ or feet pointing towards the house, or a Swastika with ‘Riddhi-Siddhi’ and ‘shubh-Laabh’ written on either side of the door. The Sawastika is believed to represent Lord Ganesha while Riddhi and Siddhi are his two wives while Shubh and Laabh are his two sons.
  • 3. Even the ‘toran’ or the ‘bandarwar’ is considered to be a good ornament for the main door as it tends to invite good luck  and wards off bad energies.
  • 4. One should place an earthen ware diya or lamp with oil in it outside the main entrance door everyday at sunset as this too helps in warding off evil and negative energies from entering into the house.
  • 5. Make sure that the main door is never producing a creaky sound due to it being un-oiled as this kills all positive energies which are about to enter the house or those which are already present in the house. Hence the hinges of the main door, and also the other doors of the house, should be well lubricated from time to time.
