pranathi,

Pooja for new house constructed (Entering) :

Pooja to Vasthu Devata, Boomi Devata, Navagraha, Ganapathy etc., should be performed for peacefulness in the house, for people in the house to live without any without any misunderstanding and also for mental peace

Gruhapravesham :

The complete Grihapravesh ritual takes six to seven hours. Early in the morning, Vastu pooja for Vastu devata is performed outside the house before the actual entry into the house. During Vastu puja, a kumbh (copper pot, as in the Bhoomi puja) is consecrated through worship out side the house. The Vastu pooja is undertaken to expiate the sins that could have been committed by the owners of the house during construction. After completing the Vastu and Kumbh pooja, the copper pot is taken inside the house by the husband and wife to a place where havan and various poojas take place.

In the ritual inside the house different poojas like, pooja of sun, pooja of lamp, Ganpathi pooja, Pooja of the Kul devta, pooja of four directions, showering (abhishek) of the couple with water, Lakshmi pooja and Homa are all done.

This pooja is concluded by distributing peanuts, dry fruits and pede- a kind of sweet made of milk, as prasad. Finally the guests are fed.

On the eve of the graha pravesh, vastubali is performed inside the house. This is a pooja performed by a priest who is not a member of the family. It consists of Ganapathi pooja, Punyaha and Vastubali homa. These are done to appease the gods and propitiate them.

On the day of the grahapravesh, before sunrise, Punyaha for vastu shudhi (purification) and Ganpathi poojas are done. According to the muhurat, members of the family enter the house. They carry ashtamangalya (eight kinds of godly things), navadhyana (nine kinds of grain), kodimundu (good piece of cloth) mirror, sandal etc. To the new home.

Any nine kinds of seeds can be used as navadhanya; with minor restrictions evolved through practice. For example, gingerly is not used in auspicious occasions in some parts of the state. The seeds used are paddy grain, flex, wheat, pulse, small and large beans, thina-a small gracing.

After entering the house Lakshmi Narayan pooja is performed. The grahanath (the wife) meanwhile boils milk in the kitchen, which should boil over and flow out, signifying abundance. The owners are required to stay overnight in the new house after the Grihapravesh ritual.

Vasthu Graha Pravesh (i.e. first entry into the newly built house) is a very important aspect of Vaastu-Shastra and it has to be dealt accordingly. After the house is complete in all respects, living in that house is to be started at some auspicious moment determined on astrological considerations. The first entry in the house at the auspicious moment is called Graha Pravesh ceremony.

Scriptures have described the procedures of Graha Pravesh at auspicious time (muhurat) and purity (defect less) of Panchang.

For Apoorva Graha Pravesh perfect auspicious time should be adhered to and for Graha Pravesh in a reconstructed house or after migration the purity of Panchang should be given due consideration.

If the doors of a house are not fitted with shutters, or the roof is not covered, or the gods of Vaastu have not been worshipped and offered sacrifices, and if the priests etc. have not been offered feast, first entry into such house (Graha Pravesh) should not be accomplished till the above things are completed, otherwise living in that house will be full of troubles and miseries.Therefore living in a house should be started only after offering sacrifices and worshipping Vaastu Gods as per procedure given in scriptures.Entry into a house built of grass and leaves etc. may be performed on any auspicious day.

In houses built with bricks, stone, mud, cement etc. the first entry is auspicious when the sun is Uttarayan. As far as possible Graha Pravesh should be accomplished in the day only, it will be auspicious. Normally, it can be done at any auspicious moment in the day or night.

Auspicious months for Graha Pravesh and the results of the same are as given below - Month Results ,Magh === Gain of wealth,Falgun ===Gain of children and wealth,Vaishakh -Growth of wealth and prosperity,Jyeshta ===Gain of son and cattle.

Besides these, the months of Kartik and Margshirsh give medium results. Graha Pravesh in the months of Ashadh, Shravan, Bhadrapad, Ashwin Paush is inauspicious and causes loss, troubles and pains, and fear of enemies.The tithies (dates) 4/9/14 and 30 (Amavas - no moon night) should be avoided and Graha Pravesh should not be done on Tuesdays.

You can also see http://www.ammas.com/a1/advisors/in… to know how to perform a simple Grihapravesam Puja

For a simple grihapravesam you can do this. Put rangoli(kolam)at the main door. Select a good place in the living room or wherever it's convinient for you to perform Puja. If you have Pooja room that will be the best place to do Puja. Place any God's picture like Ganesh facing the east.put a small rangoli with rice flour in front of God.

Offer fruits and flowers for god.keep them in front of the photo. Prepare some naivedyam like payasam,sundal,etc and keep that also.don't forget coconut. Light agarbhattis. Light lamp preferably kuthuvilakku. Place kumukum and Turmeric along with these things. Now coming to the main part, boil milk in a new vessel on the stove top.when it comes to a full boil,switch it off.take out and keep it before God.

You can play some cassettes or audio cds of Slokams,devotional songs or carnatic music.

Recite some slokams that you know and pray God for a healthy,wealthy and prosperous life in your new home. At the end,do a Mangalarathi lighting camphor by ringing a bell. touch it and pray. Let everybody in the house touch it. Then distribute the boiled milk by adding sugar and the naivedyams to everybody.

You can give kumkum, Turmeric and thamboolam to a few ladies.
