Which Ganesha Idol Is Good For: ‘Bring A White Ganesha To Home‘
It is believed that one can attract prosperity, wealth, and happiness by keeping an idol of White Ganesha at home. If you can’t place an idol, even a picture of Ganesha can do wonders for you. Make sure, however, that the Lord Ganesha’s back faces the outside of the house.
Never Place Ganesha Idol in South Direction
It is imperative that you do not put Ganesha in the south direction. Also, keep in mind that Lord Ganesha is nowhere near a bathroom or washroom or adjacent to a bathroom. Do not make such mistakes.
Direction to Place Ganesha-Lakshmi Idols
If there is the best direction to place Lord Ganesha, it is the north-east corner of the house. Other directions where you can place Ganesha idol at home is west or east directions of the house. If a north-east direction isn’t feasible for you, try to place the idol in a manner that you face east or north while offering prayers.
