Chaitra Navratri starts from today, so today in Vastu Shastra we will tell you about the installation of the idol and Kalash Stapana of Devi Maa on the first day of Navratri. According to Vastu Shastra, both the idol of the mother and the installation of the urn should be done in the north-east direction of the house and the wooden outpost should be used for idol installation. If one gets an outpost made of sandalwood, it is even better. Also keep in mind that idol installation should never be done near toilets or bathrooms.
Apart from this, Acharya Indu Prakash also tells you the right direction for worshiping Goddess.
