Auspicious Paintings for home

Who doesn’t like to beautify their home? While most people have a fondness of assembling antique furniture, a few like to amass fine-looking paintings, photographs or wall hanging. According to Vaastu Shastra, people should be conscious of what they are pulling together around them, especially in case of paintings, photos or wall hangings. When we get all conscious about the right furniture, curtains, even placemats, then why we don’t bother about the stuff we put up on walls?

Vaastu has laid down some rules regarding the ideal positioning of pictures and paintings. Vaastu has laid down some directions and locations where these pictures and paintings can have maximum positive or negative effects.

Some of the tips about the direction and location of paintings and pictures to leverage maximum positive effects are:

Everyone loves to have family pictures and portraits displayed in one’s home. The best place to hang these pictures is the South-West wall, as this placement increases bond and harmony between the relationships. It is advised that you should never place your family pictures in Eastern or Northern corner of the house.

If water is the main element in your painting such as waterfall painting or flowing river painting or Koi fish painting, the best suitable place to hang such pictures is the Northern wall of your house. Water is an ancient symbol of wealth and prosperity. In fengshui waterfall or fountain paintings bring abundant flow of wealth and good fortune.


Similarly, the painting of Seven or Eight horses should be positioned only on the Southern wall as it is a zone of your fame and reputation. Horses’ painting on south wall bring fame, recognition and triumph, mobility and promotion, bring steady and speedy growth in fame and success in career and life.

It is advised to have a painting of evergreen bamboo painting on the eastern wall. It invokes good health, happiness and luck all year round. It is also a symbol of growth in life, wealth and relationships

Paintings for Meditation/ Yoga Practice

Symbols are a significant part of the yoga tradition and play an integral role in yoga practices. Many mystics from India have stated that each individual comes into contact with a variety of universal forces when one practices yoga passionately and sincerely. This connection can be facilitated and expressed through the yoga symbols.

The symbols help the yoga practitioner achieve direct access to these forces, elevate themselves to a higher state of consciousness, develop positive qualities and bring deeper meaning and insight into one’s path. Hence, it becomes essential for each practitioner to have some of these common yoga symbols in the room to enhance the effect of yoga and meditation.


Aum/OM is the most common and sacred symbol within different spiritual traditions. Many yogis believe Aum to be the first uttered word. Considered to mirror the sound of the cosmos, chanting Aum helps us open our third eye and connect to the absolute and divine force of the universe. It allows us to tune in to a deeper place inside of us and create a clear vision of reality, one that lies beyond the conditioned mind. In practice, Aum is often used to open or close a yoga asana or meditation class. A powerful technique is to spend an entire meditation chanting Aum out loud or just mentally by concentrating on the symbol of OM on the wall in front of your eyes. This meditation will bring you tranquility, peace and bliss.
