A Bhumi Poojan is normally followed by lunch organized by the host for all present for the ritual. It is a way of saying thank you to those who attended the pooja and gave their blessings for the prosperity and well-being of the property being constructed on the land. 

Many Indians also go the extra mile and arrange langars for the less fortunate on the day of the bhumi poojan.

Due to the current conditions with the pandemic, lockdowns, and other restrictions in your city, you might not be able to invite your friends and family to this big event. What you can do is take them on a virtual call and have them be a part of your day virtually.

Whatever you choose to do for your bhumi poojan, we pray your construction goes on successfully and you build your dream home on the land you’re worshipping.
