Worship of Gods and Goddesses has been an integral part of Hindu rituals and customs. Hinduism is known for having multiple gods and goddesses who bless their devotees with various significant virtues and valor. The Hindu pantheon is composed of the three supreme gods- Brahma, Shiva, and Vishnu and the three supreme Goddesses- Saraswati, Lakshmi, and Parvati. These Gods and Goddesses along with their several avatars and minor regional deities ensure the balance on Earth and are those regularly worshiped to usher happiness, prosperity, riches, and stability into the lives of their true devotees.
Copper statues of Gods and Goddesses are placed by devotees in their homes and offices to introduce peace, stability, and prosperity into their personal spaces. In Hinduism, statues, sculptures, and portraits of Gods and Goddesses have been worshiped for quite a long time. They are a source of confidence, love, and companionship in the lives of their devotees. In each Hindu home, we will notice a little home altar area or mandir for the worship and love of the personal murtis. A murti is an epitome of a Hindu god in any structure which is generally a sculpture of the god or goddesses. The main rule to recollect while developing dir in the house is that there are no standards, just rules. A true devotee should dedicate a whole space to building the mandir; nonetheless, in the event that this isn't accessible, they can just pick a tranquil corner of a room somewhere in the house. As per the Vastu Shastra, the home altar room ought to generally be the northeastern most room in the home and the actual sanctum ought to be in the northeastern most corner of that room as this guides the progression of legitimate energy or chakra.
The principle devas or Gods found in any house altar, and in no way, shape or form is restricted to Ganesha, Parvati, Shiva, Vishnu, and Krishna. Families might choose only one divinity while others like to have a whole pantheon. Despite the number of gods living on the altar, there is generally one Ishta Deva (an undisputed top choice). This divinity's spot on the altar is the centermost seat and is generally the most intricate and prized. The murtis ought to be put on a table or in the mandir facing the devotee. In a perfect altar, the murtis ought to be put on a more modest stage on top of the table or inside the mandir; however, this isn't so important. Murtis ought to likewise be given some type of attire, flowers, incense, and different contributions consistently as the murtis are viewed as actual signs of god(s).
The back portion of the statue should not be visible to the devotee, it is advisable to ensure that only the front portion of a statue of Hindu Gods and Goddesses is visible to the devotee. Last but not the least, a true devotee should always reach out to the statues with utmost warmth and care; then only will they be blessed with happiness and abundance in their lives.
