Pooja rooms in the house

The Gods should be installed in the West facing the East door so that room attracts intense devotion from the residents.  Meditation facing the east makes the person more spiritually knowledgeable soft and kind in thinking.

The pictures of the gods put up on south walls facing north increase the divinity and demand more devotion from the inhabitants.  Prayers rendered facing southern direction make the person aggressive in thinking as the power originates from the southern direction.

That's why the goddess (Maha Sakthi) is installed in the south facing north as there is the living room in the north and main central entrance in the north makes the deity more powerful and the ardent devotees of this goddess will possess leadership qualities commanding the respect which the tall gopuram on the sanctum sanctorum (grabagraha) in south direction bestows on the goddess.

The pooja room on the western wall with its entrance on side and the deities or photos facing east is ideal but the house owner should sit in the south, facing north while praying this will give more power to the deities and the devotees.  The shelf can be arranged on the North-east corner for God's photos, so that brings peace, compassion philosophic thinking.

There is a general belief that the pooja room can be in the north-east corner.  The north-east corner is the place of lord Eswara.  It should be free with windows (northeast wall and eastern wall) there should not be any room on the north-east corner for pooja.  In the temple the God is installed on west, but not in the North-east direction.
