New Purchases Pujas
Hindu Vedic scriptures mention that any material possession which is acquired by us during our lifetime comes from the blessings of the lord. Material possessions like new vehicle, new home and new estate are meant to provide us comfort and security. Many such possessions are passed on from generation to generation. As per Vedas a Puja should be conducted to revere the lord for bestowing such gifts on us and seek his blessings to make such possessions fruitful in our lives and generations to follow.

According to Hindu culture, the land is considered as a mother. Bhoomi is the Hindu goddess of Mother Earth. Before the start of any construction a puja is performed which is called as Bhoomi Pujan. This puja is conducted to get the permission from Deva Bhoomi along with their blessings and help. Bhoomi Pujan Vidhi depends on quality of the land and purpose of the construction to be undertaken. If construction of a group of residential housing is the objective then Kubera Lakshmi mantras can be sung to increase sales of individual homes. If erection of a manufacturing factory is the objective, then adding a Vishwakarma Puja is suitable. Basically, Bhoomi Puja Vidhi can be altered so that it bears the sweetest fruits for the person concerned. If there are any legal problems / disputes related to land then Sudarshana Kalabhairava puja will be useful, If the enemy is equal / more powerful / strong, then the power of Bagalamukhi Brahmastra works well. Like Vastu Puja, Bhoomi Pujan is better if done in the Bhoomi, that is, call the Pandits to the site and conduct puja. However, Bhoomi Pujan can also be done remotely, you can send small samples taken from eight different locations of Bhoomi, Pandit will consecrate the sand, conduct all the rituals and send it back to you.
