Auspicious Time for Bhoomipujan (Worship of the Land)
Before starting construction on the plot we have purchased, it is necessary to get it cleaned thoroughly unnecessary stones, rubble, earth mounds, pits etc. should be removed. All the thorny bushes and other trees should be uprooted from the roots. If there are Babool (Gum Arabic tree) trees, they should be uprooted first. The construction is unnecessarily delayed. If there are heaps of rubbish in the north-east or the south-east corners, it should be removed immediately, otherwise paucity of funds will always be felt and there will always be unnecessary troubles. If there is a pit at the center or in the southeast corner or the south-west corner of the plot it should be immediately filled up otherwise the construction work is delayed.
It is extremely necessary to worship the land before the construction work starts. At any place after digging up to one foot if we find bones and filthy rubbish, hair etc. they should be removed. Baisakh, Shravan, Margshirsh and Falgun these four months are auspicious for the worship of the land
