Master Bedroom

Ideally Master Bedroom should be in the Southwest direction and can extend from South Or South-South West To West South West areas as maximum positive energy gets triggered and Tran located and subsequently retained in this area. Due to this positive energy health, wealth and prosperity of the occupants of the premises get enhanced in due course, and a sense of tranquility prevails amongst members of the family.
         

Children’s Bedroom

Preferably children’s room should be situated in the south but in relation to their parents it is advisable to locate their room in the South East. Such rooms are conductive to more relaxation and can make the child more calm and quite. So it would be better to position a hyperactive or a grown up child to use the room. South East rooms though may lead a child to be little aggressive so it would be far better for a timid child to use the room. Southern rooms are suitable for females and western rooms for male child.
       

Guest Rooms

Ideally they should be located in the North West areas of the house since occupants of such place move out fast.

Several things need careful consideration while going in for construction of a building. The most important of all these is selecting the right plot or site. Sand and its surroundings bring peace and harmony or pains and sorrows in life. Thus it is always advisible to consult an expert on Vastu Shastra before buying a plot or purchasing a house, flat or other buildings instead of calling him in at a later stage to design the building, do supervision and other work. By the time the damage would have already been done.

Vastu Directions

FROM WHOM NOT TO BUY A PLOT


According to Vastu Shastra, a plot or site of land should not be purchased :

- From those who became insolvent
- From person suffering from leprosy
- From lunatics
- From people who have left the country, etc.

Similarly, land donated to temple, alloted to watchman of village or colony, land in possession of charitable trusts, land without any title deed should not be purchased. Land containing boulders, ant hills, worm hills, bones and skeleton etc, should not be acquired.

DIRECTION OF THE PLOT

- Plot facing East is good for scholars, philosphers, priests, professors, teachers etc.
- Plot facing North is good for those in power, administration and those who work for government.
- Plot facing South is good for business class and for those who work in business organisation.
- Plot facing West is for those who provide supporting services to the society.

ENVIRONMENT OR SURROUNDINGS OF THE PLOT

This is most important.
If the sorrundings are not good, we suffer in many ways.

- Plots which are fertile with plants and greeneries are very good.
- A river or big canal nearby and if it is in North side and water flows from West to East, it is good.
- Similarly if it is on East side of the plot with water flowing from South to North, that is also good.
- But plots with rivers or canal flowing on West or South side of the plot should be avoided.
- Hills, hillocks, mounds of Earth, big boulders etc on the Southern, South West and Western sides of the plot is good : in other sides, it will mar the progress.
- There should be no graveyard, cemetry or tomb adjacent to the plot or in front or back.
- Location of temples near the plot also affect the immates. Temple on the right side of a plot cause material loss, on the left, grief and sorrow, in front, obstruction to progress and in the 100 feet apart, those disastrous result are avoided.
- Similarly plot very near to Cinema-theatres, schools and colleages are to be avoided.

OBSTRUCTION IN FRONT OF MAIN GATE OF PLOT

If there are obstructions of the undernoted types before main gate of the plot, following problems will arise as per BRAHUSANHITHA.

- Big Tree-obstruction to the progress of children,
- Gutter or Ditch-grief,
- Open well- mental problem,
- Corner of another building-mental unrest,
- Water drain-draining of income by unwanted expenses,
- Straight street-affecting longivity of inmates,
- Dilapidated house or walls-affecting prosperity,
- Staircase railings-sadness,
- Pillars; Electric and telephone post-affecting females.

According to VASTURAJ and BRAHUSANHITA these are called VEDH DOSHA. But in between the plot and obstacles if there is a public road, these deficiencies are nullified.

Similarly, if the distance between the obstacles and the house is two times the height of the house, these deficiencies will have no effect. For example, if the height of the house is 11 feet and if the obstructions are more than 22 feet away, Vedh Dosha vanishes.

SURROUNDINGS OF NEIGHBOURS

The surroundings of our neighbouring houses on all sides also affect us.

• Rain water falling from the roofs of neighbours should not flow into our plot particularly from North or East direction.
• The affluent of neighbour should not flow into our plot.
• In the North East side of the plot high-rise or tall buildings should not be there because such high rise buildings give rise to mental unrest. But if they are in South, South West or Western sides that will be auspicious to the buyer of the new plot or house.
• In between two neighbouring big plots, a smaller plot should not be purchased. Similarly between two tall buildings, a small house should not be bought. This will make the buyer poorer day by day.
• A plot measuring 180 feet By 100 feet (180*100) was purchased by three parties.



Here the person who bought plot C turns out to be most prosperous while owner of plot B has to face all sorts of trouble.

Vastu for Building Mahurat



Complete Vastu recommendation for Building Mahurat

After the land has been selected the owner should consult a learned astrologer to find out and auspicious time (muhurat) to start the construction of the house which would bring him health, wealth, prosperity and good fortune. A learned astrologer should be consulted because by doing so the construction work will go on smoothly, there will be no hindrances or problems, work will be completed soon successfully. Often it has been observed that if the work is started without caring for the auspicious moment, the work has to be stopped in between due to financial difficulties or other problems and is left incomplete. Not only financial loss, it brings loss of mental peace also. Therefore house construction work must be started after full consideration for the work to be successful and fruitful.

Generally construction of house, temple, palaces (Raj Bhawan), city etc. should not be stared or first entry (grah-pravesh) should not be accomplished during the period Ashadh Shukla to Kartik Shikla , when gods are asleep (Dev Shayan).

Muhurat (auspicious times) for construction of house or starting the work have been given in the Panchangs. Astrologers have expressed their own different views about starting the construction work.

According to Vasturaj Vallabh, Leo constellation (singhasth), Vyatipat, Vaidhriti, Dagdhtithi, Guru 9Jupiter), Shukra (Venus) when set, weak moon, Rikta tithi (4/9/14) are not auspicious for starting house construction work or any other good and auspicious work. Some scholars are of the opinion that if Jupiter or Venus are set (Tara) it doesn't matter.

Give below are the sun Sankranties during which if construction work is started it gives varied results:

1. Sun in the Aries (Mesh) Rashi 14 April to 13 May-very good.
2. Sun in the Taurus (Vrish) Rashi 14 May to 13 June-increase in wealth
3. Sun is in Gemini (Mithun) Rashi 14 June to 13 July-Death
4. Sun is in Cancer (Kark) Rashi 14 July to 13 August-very good
5. Sun is in Leo (Singh) Rashi 14 August to 13 September - increase in number of servants.
6. Sun is in Virgo (Kanya) Rashi 14 September to 13 October -Diseases
7. Sun is in Libra (Tula) Rashi 14 October to 13 November - Happiness/comforts
8. Sun is in Scorpio (Vrishchik) Rashi 14 November to 13 December - Increase in Wealth.
9. Sun is in Saggitarius (Dhanu) Rashi 14 Dec. to 13 January-loss
10. Sun is in Capricorn (Makar) Rashi 14 Jan. to 13 February-gain of wealth.
11. Sun is in Aquarius (Kumbh) Rashi 14 Feb. to 13 March-gain of Jewels
12. Sun is in Pisces (Meen) Rashi 14 March to 13 April-Fear.

Therefore the 3rd, 6th, 9th and 12th i.e., Mithun (Gemini), Vigro (Kanya), Saggitarius (Dhanu) and Pisces (Meen) Rashies are not suitable and auspicious for starting house construction, and the work should not be started during the period sun is in these Rashis.

Among the months, Baisaakh, Shravan, Margshirsh Magh and Falgun are good for the work. Bhadrapad and Kartik are also normally permissible.

Construction work should be started on the dates (tithis) 2,3,5,6,7,10,11,12,13,15 and the 1st of Krishna Paksha (dark fortnight).

Prohibited date - Starting the construction work on the dates 1,4,8,9,14 and 30 (Amavas) brings Poverty, loss of wealth, loss of money, death of wife, fear from the rulers. Therefore work should not be started on these dates.

Constellations - The Nakshatras Rohini, Mrigshira, Chitra, Hast, Swati, Anuradha, Uttarashdah, Uttar Bhadrapad, Uttar Falguni, Dhanshtha, Shatbhisha, Revati are good for starting the house construction work.

Lagna - Aries, Gemini, Leo, Virgo, Scorpio, Aquarius, and Pisces Lagna, when it is not Panchban and it is not the period of Bhoomi Shayan, and there is some beneficial planet in the centre and triangle positions, and the eighth house is beneficial when there are cruel planets in 3rd, 6th and 11th houses; such periods are good for auspicious starting of the construction work.

Bhoomi Shayan - On the days of constellations 5/7/9/12/19/26 from the constellation in which sun is situated the earth is 'sleeping' (Bhoomi Shayan) and on these days also during the 4/8/5/3//6/7 Ghati it is so; in remaining Ghatis it is not Bhoomi Shayan.

Days - Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday are good days to start construction work. On Sunday or Tuesday starting the work should be avoided.

For starting the house construction work, Vrish-vasta calculation should be done. If the constellation of the day counted from that of the sun comes upto 7, it is inauspicious, next 11 it is god and next 10 are again inauspicious. Abhijeet should also be included in counting.

7 In auspicious (unlucky) 11 Auspicious (Lucky) 10 In auspicious (Unlucky) 28 constellations Result of the count from constellation of the sun to that of the Moon.

Vishisht Yoga (Special combinations) have also been described for the start of house construction. The combination of seven Sakar (starting with 'S' Viz. Saturday, Swati nakshatra, Singh (Leo) Lagna Shukla Paksha (Moonlit fortnight), Seventh tithi, Shubh yoga and Shravan month, is very good for starting the work of a house. It will fetch to the owner growth of all wealth and fortune along with the gain of conveyance, wealth and prosperity, sons and grandsons etc.

House construction is not allowed in singh (Leo) Lagna, it should not be started in this Lagna alone, but if the above combination is there with Singh Lagna starting of the work is auspicious. House construction started in Shukla Paksha brings happiness, while that in Krishna Paksha it brings loss. Therefore it is better to start the construction work after well consideration of the Shukla or Krishna Paksha.



Vastu Gyaan
 

Vastu means the dwelling of humans & Gods. Vastu shastra is an ancient science which helps one to get the natural benefits freely offered by the five basic elements of the universe in which we all live. These basic elements are Akash (SKY), Prithvi (EARTH), Paani (WATER), Agni (FIRE), and Vayu (WIND). Vastu Shastra can be applied by keeping in harmony with these basic five elements of nature. Vastu Shastra is an edifice science that was developed by our learned people thousands of years ago. Its application today is purely architectural and its principles are based on becoming one with nature.

Many Vastu rules are derived from 'Vastu Purusha Mandala' which is depicted as a man lying with his head pointing north east, in a grid of usually 64 squares. The different directions and sectors are assigned to different Gods and Guardians.



In doing Vastu of any place , home, work place, building, factory, land or plot we try to harmonize the place with respect to the five basic elements called as Panchbhoota namely Air, Water, Fire, Earth and Space. We shall discuss about importance of each of this element and how well we can harmonize them to relieve a stressful life, bringing 3 P's viz peace, protection and prosperity in our lives.

WATER: Water bodies in north or east are considered good. As far as the flow of domestic water is concerned, it should be borne in mind and that such water should be drained out in North - East. Wells, tubewells, swimming pools etc. should all be in the North-East. The water from the toilets and bathrooms, too, should be drained out in the North- East. The North-East direction is always auspicious and suitable for water. There are sewer-systems in the cities. The Septic tanks or the flow of sewer systems should be towards North - West. The flow of rain or fresh water should be towards North-East.

FIRE: The direction of Fire is South-East. The Kitchen, fireplace, geysers etc. should be placed only in this direction. Alternatively these could be placed in North-West, because it is at 180 degree to South-East. The Vastu Fire Element One can take care of the South-East Corners of all rooms and aim for Hapiness in the family, Good Health, Sound Finances, and Nice Married Life. As South-East belongs to Agni he can create enough trouble for inmates. The South-East corner of every room should be taken care of it. One can keep Agni - Vastu Fire Element cheerful by having a spotlight or lantern in the South-East corner with light or burning flame pointing to the roof. One can have the Electrical gadgets like Television, VCR, Fridge, Computer, Fire-place, Microwaves, radio etc placed in South-East corner.

AIR: The air should enter the building from North -East. All the openings and media for air entry such as doors, windows, ventilators coolers, air-conditioners, verandahs, balconies etc. should be in this directions.

SPACE OR OPEN SKY: The open sky influences greatly. We can get the effect of terrestrial-energies uninterruptedly. But the buildings prove a barrier to the effects of open sky. Therefore, the importance of roofs or lawns gets emphasized, but the Vastu shastra has refrained from deliberating in detail over it, because it is related chiefly to building construction and we will discuss only this aspect. Traditionally every house in India used to have an open space (Court Yard) in the center of the house. It provided the dwellers not only the open sky but also sunlight and cross-ventilation of air.

SHAPE OF PLOT: Favourites are regular shaped square or rectangular plota AND irregular shaped plots are normally avoided.

OBSTRUCTION: Obstruction like big trees, open well, pillars and posts before a arrow like roads are to be avoided.

IDEAL SITE: A building should be constructed preferably in a square plot the house should be constructed in the for house centre and in rectangular plot it should be nearer to construction south, south west and west sides preferably leaving more in a plot open space on north and east. "L" or Considered not suitable for house as corners will be "U" shaped missing and occupants will be missing opportunities.
 


Quick Vastu Shanti Tips


When sitting for worship, keep your face towards North-West and sit in that corner to intake air from that direction.

A house should not have paintings, which depicts depressing scenes, i.e. like an old woman crying, scenes of war or poverty. It should have picture of say, a sunrise, an ocean, mountains, flowers or laughing children.
Tall trees are nowhere recommended close to the main building. For trees the south in itself is good and so is the west. No tree should be grown in the north and the east. The one at the north-east is the worst.
Small decorative plants and shrubs may be grown in the north and the east. The height should not exceed, say, half a meter at the north-east increasing gradually to not more than 1.5 meter as one moves from the north-east to the north-west or to the south-east end.
Except rose and a few medicinal ones, all thorny plants give rise to tensions in the environment. Plants exuding white sap should also be kept off. Lime and karonda etc. are OK in an orchard but not in residence or business premises.
Amongst the beneficial plants, the best is Tulsi. It is commendable to keep at least one Tulsi plant in the north-east area of the premises, but its height should not exceed 1.5 meter.
Growing creepers/climbers with support on the compound wall or a house wall is best avoided.
Cactus should not be planted or kept in the house.

If north of any house is blocked it blocks prosperity.
Water flowing/water fountain from north to east is very good.



Directions & their respective Rulers

North-east (Eshan) is ruled by Sadasiva or God Himself. Hence this direction is paramount, which demands keeping it scrupulously clean, open and highly receptive in a welcome "mode" always.
East is ruled by Indra, the chief of the gods, giver of pleasures. The direction also represents the realm of the rising Sun projecting ultra-violet rays, so essential for health in several ways.
South-east (Agneya) is the habitat of fire, the storehouse of energy.
South is the abode of Yama, the god of death.
South-west (Nairitya) is the abode of Putna demoness.
West is the abode of Varuna, the god of ocean. It is also the direction of the setting Sun which gives infra-red radiation.
North-west (Vayavva) is the abode of air/wind, the invisible, but the most effective blessing for all objects in need of motion/movement for their efficiency.
North is the abode of Kuber, the god of wealth.
 


REMEDIES FOR CONSTRUCTION MADE AGAINST THE PRINCIPLES OF VASTU:



Sometimes, it so happens that the man does such acts, out of ignorance, which harm him and their remedy seems impossible. Here, we are giving solutions to the problems of those, who had constructed their houses against the rules of Vastu -Shastra. To overcome following information is given, however, it is strongly recommended that the Vastu of your own house especially correction of Vastu should be done with the help of Vastu expert and should not be attempted by acquiring shallow knowledge or tips for Vastu. Few ill effects of Vastu if not done correctly and remedies are discussed below for only general information.
If some river or drain is flowing in a direction other than the north-east direction of the house and has anti - clock movement, then it is advised to place a statue of dancing Ganeshji facing the west on the north-east corner of the house.
If the boring has taken place in the wrong direction in a house or a factory, then it is advised to place a picture of Panchmukhi Hanumanji, facing South-West to the boring.
If a naked wall is seen while entering into a flat, then either a picture or a statue of Ganeshji should be placed there. The naked wall is the sign of loneliness. Hence, the wall should not be kept naked.
If high voltage overhead wires pass over a house, then a plastic pipe filled with lime should be erected from one corner to the other of the affected area in such a manner that its both ends should remain outside by at least three feet each. This will eliminate the evil effects of energy being generated out of the overhead wire. In certain cases, energy circles can be improved by using Swastika Yantra. But, this requires a lot of care. This should be handled under the supervision of an able Vastu Shastri.



IDEAL HOUSE WITH PERFECT VASTU:



The following are the guidelines to design and construct an ideal house which houses prosperity, protection and peaceful environment in the house. It is essential to understand and interpret these ground rules and then apply.

The main door of the house should preferably be located in any of the exalted positions from the Northeast corner - either from North of Northeast or from East of Northeast. Doors can also be in the South of Southeast or West of Northwest but in no case, should the main entrance be from the center of any direction.

The directions of East and West are important as far as obtaining the energy from the sun is concerned.
