Some orthodox Hindu families (Middle class) keep deities photos every place in their home.

  1. Some keep partially divided in the kitchen
  2. Some keep in the hall itself
  3. Bed room is an optional if someone wants to see the first sight everyday.

Is this right? Any scriptures say about this in Hinduism. (If there is no separate pooja room.)

  • I dont think you will find rules like that. Its up to the person if he likes photos in all rooms. – Rakesh Joshi Nov 4 '18 at 14:26
  • God is not resided only in separate puja room. God is everywhere, then we can keep their photos everywhere :) – Vishvam Nov 4 '18 at 15:09

    Yes usually it is ideal if a separate Puja room can be formed. Otherwise the deities shd be kept in a covered place (small Mandir or a wooden box). While worshiping the cover is removed during other times it is kept covered. This is the practice I hv noticed being followed becoz many families may not hv a separate place for Puja. But finding scriptural instructions may be hard to do here. @ssr1012 – Rickross Nov 5 '18 at 13:20

    God is everywhere is only a belief/theory/concept.. Such advises do not mean anything practically. Do we see God being present everywhere? NO right? So, some basic rules are to be maintained while keeping images of Gods in house other than Puja place. For e.g one shd not keep them in the bedroom where husband and wife sleeps (for obvious reasons).. For similar reasons one shd not keep them in toilets either.. @ssr1012 – Rickross Nov 6 '18 at 8:06
