Lord Krishna has an immense following all over the world and is known as the God of wealth, love and prosperity. Many of us bring home an idol of Lord Krishna be it big or small for praying to them and some get the idol as it looks pretty as well. His idol is said to bring good luck to your home but do you know that direction and the right elements of and around the statues matter a lot? You might be inviting bad luck if the placement of the Lord Krishna murti is wrong.
Follow these rules, keep these key elements in mind to reverse the bad luck you may have already attracted:
It is not just the direction to which we will come soon, it is firstly the height of the area where Lord Krishna's idol will be placed. If you are getting a huge statue then you must keep in mind the position off the floor and the distance between the statue and the ceiling. You must get a smaller statue that is at eye level when you place it. It is important that you are able to look at the statue in the eye, without having to look up or look down.
Never Place The Idol In These Rooms & Corners
Place lord Krishna's statue in a NorthEast corner and make sure that it is facing East to West or West to East. However, you must also consider the rooms nearby. Make sure that it is never placed in a bathroom or bedroom. Avoid rooms with adjoining walls as well.
As you enter your home, check which wall of your house is in which direction. The idol is most effective when it is placed in the Northeast corner of the home as mentioned above. East to West, or West to East is fine for its facing but never North to South. It is quite similar to the Feng Shui rules. These directions and placement shows respect for the Krishna statue and invites a healthy and positive energy flow.
Direction Of Light
Proper light is a must for the statue. The main light source direction must hit the statue from the Southeastern side. If you notice, in temples, candles and oil lamps are placed in these directions. The direction of light attracts positivity and good energy into your home. It also brings in prosperity and happiness.
Type of Statue
Just like Lord Buddha, the type of statue of Lord Krishna also matters on your purpose. If you had a child or are having one soon then bring home the child version of Lord Krishna. But, if you need good energy then bring home a Krishna statue with a calf.

This flower is not just beautiful but considered sacred as well. It depicts struggle in life as it grows in muddy waters, but remains fragrant and looks beautiful. Place a lotus in your temple every day as it brings stability to a person. But you must replace it every other day with a fresh one.
Misri and Makhan
Making prasad for Lord Krishna is a no-brainer to put it lightly. Lord Krishna must be offered a prasad with misri and white butter. It is best to keep some misri in an airtight container in your home temple.
Lord Krishna wears a Vaijayanti mala as a bracelet or around his neck. If you can, then get one which has his name on it.
