Vastu is termed as the science of architecture. Vastu is an ancient guide for a perfect home which means it specifies the best location for an individual room or commodities in your house so that we can get a maximum benefit from mother nature. Expecting good sunlight, good ventilation, and peaceful life within your home? Obviously yes! In that case, we should follow the
Vastu. So let us now discuss the minimum requirement that is to be met to have a Vastu perfect home.
We have eight directions with us that are: north, south, east, west and northwest, northeast, southwest, and southeast.
Northeast is a preferred location to have a pooja and living room. Southeast is preferable to have a kitchen. Southwest is preferred to have a master bedroom. Northwest is preferable to have a washroom.
Northeast is the direction where the water element recites. Southeast is the direction where the fire elements recite. Southwest is the direction where the earth element recites. Northwest is the direction where the air element recites. Northeast is also referred to as Eshanya that resembles a region of god. Southeast is the region of Agni which means fire. Southwest resembles Asuras
which resembles demons. Northwest is a region of Vayu that resembles the wind or air.
Let us study the suitability of rooms in particular directions and sub directions:
The northeast corner: The northeast corner is also known as the Eshanya corner which is best suited for the pooja room. A better option to have a living room in this corner as well as it is preferable to have open spaces in this corner such as sit-outs etc. never have a toilet or a safety tank at this corner. Placing a heavy object needs to be avoided at this corner. And this region should be as clean as possible. Since it is a corner where water elements recite, it is preferable to have the water bodies such aquarium in this corner.as
The southeast corner: As we know this is a region of fire thus it will be best to have a kitchen in this corner. Ensure that the toilet and bedroom should not be placed in this corner of a flat.
The southwest corner: the southwest corner is best suited for the master bedroom which is used by the head of the family. The bedroom in the southwest direction brings good health and prosperity. It is not a good region to have a kitchen, toilets and a pooja room.
The northwest corner: The northwest corner is the region of wind which is best suited for toilets and washrooms. A secondary location to have a kitchen. Preferred location to have a guest bedroom. This corner is not a preferred location to have a pooja room.
Vastu Shastra is an ancient guide for a positive home. Right from the entrance of a house to the bedroom, kitchen, bathroom, pooja room, it will specify a preferable location.
An east-facing entrance door is a good option according to Vastu. Other preferred directions for the entrance door is north and northeast corners. South and west directions are the least preferred location for the entrance door. For the lining room, the northeast direction is preferred. Lighting should be good in the living room. Also, it should have windows on the north and east
side of the living area. No heavy object should be placed in the northeast corner. It is preferred to have an aquarium in the northeast corner in the living room. The door of the pooja room should east or the west direction. While talking about the kitchen, it should not have an east direction facing the cooking platform as per the Vastu standards. Vastu states that the cooking platform should face the east and cook. The master bedroom should be in the south west area. A very important note while sleeping that your head should face south or east direction. If there is an attached washroom it should be on the west side. The wardrobe, safe, etc should be placed in the southwest corner of the bedroom. The preferred location for a children’s bedroom is north or northwest and the guest bedroom is to be placed in the east or northwest corner. If you want to build a swimming pool in the house, it should be on the north side of your house. If you are planning to build a new house then you can select a location having a lake or other
water bodies on the north side of the plot. You should plant trees or plants in the south or southwest direction of the plot. If possible a pathway should be built around the house.
If you follow Vastu standards then surely you will gain prosperity, health, wealth, and fame. Vastu standards are based on science. Many people do courses to learn Vastu Shastra. The courses in Vastu Shastra are a quite expensive thou.
