Here are some Vastu tips to celebrate Ganesh Utsav and perform the puja as per Vastu.

The puja spot
Select or create a clutter-free corner in the northeast direction, also known as Ishaan corner, of your house, as it is the best location for the placing any idol. Another spot can be the east or the west direction.

Place the idol on an altar
You should always place the idol on a raised platform, preferably on a wooden plank covered with a clean white fabric. Put in some fresh flower garlands and keep items such as turmeric and sandalwood paste, Kumkum, lamps, a kalash containing rice or holy water, rangoli and other such things.

The idol's position
The idol should be placed in the right orientation as it tends to kindle auspicious and positive vibrations, bringing along success and happiness. The idol should be positioned with its back, which indicates poverty, facing an outside wall of the house. Devotees offering prayers must face positive directions like north or east and avoid facing south direction.

Avoid these things
Never position the idol in the south direction, under a staircase, near the bathroom or facing one, across a wall that is attached to a bathroom or even inside bedrooms. Also never place multiple idols.

Types of idols
The idols tend to absorb all negative energies in the household and hence clay idols overlaid with environment-friendly colours should be worshipped during the festival.

Be it noted here that the most simplest form of Ganesh idols is made of turmeric, mango, peepal or neem trees. Statues of silver and crystal are quite popular, too. One thing to be remembered is that you every figurine must have the mouse that the deity rides on, the modak and the sweet the deity relishes as that makes it complete.

Vastu experts exert that keeping a white Ganesh figurine bestows devotees with abundant wealth, happiness, health, success and prosperity.

Direction of the trunk
The direction of the trunk also holds importance in the festivity. A sitting Ganesh whose trunk that is straight or curves towards the left side or up in the air is a powerful symbol of good luck.
