    Living with vaastu

    Madan Gupta Spatu

    Vaastu Shastra is an ancient Indian architectural science that evolved some 5,000 years ago with roots in the sacred Vedic texts. Its principles of building planning and construction seek to bring about an ideal and harmonious balance between humans and the environment. And as a balanced existence generally paves the way for a happy, fulfilled one, following the principles of Vaastu Shastra can result in a life well-lived.
    In doing Vaastu of any place — home, workplace, building, factory, land or plot we try to harmonise the place with respect to the five basic elements called as Panchbhoota namely air, water, fire, earth and space. Here are some broad principles that should be kept in mind by house owners for a balanced, healthy and happy life:
    Selecting a plot

    Plots should be square or rectangular in shape – never triangular, circular, hexagonal, elliptical or zig-zag — and preferably sloping towards north, east and north-east.The soil should not be sandy, infertile or marshy. The ground level should be higher in south and west rather than north and east. Plots facing north or east are better than those facing south or west. A canal, a lake, river, nallah, a big well or pond should be in north or east. Heavy construction or mountains should be in west or south of the plot There should not be any big tree in north or east of the plot.
    l There should not be any pit or well in south or west direction.
    l All four corners should be at 90 degree (set square). If only north east is extended i.e. if it is less than 90 degree, it will do.
    l All rain water should ideally flow from south to north and west to east.
    l South west should be highest and north east should be the lowest in level. If all the corners are not at 90 degres then we should correct it before starting the construction.
    l If the deadend of a road is coming in the plot then it should be taken care of. There should not be any hills or mountains in east or north side of your plot.
    l At the time of purchasing the adjacent plot purchase only in east, north or north-east plots. Never purchase adjacent plot in south or west or accept if even if offered for free.
    Tips for construction of house
    l The central space of the home, known as the Brahmasthan, should remain vacant. In ancient India and in many existing old palaces and havelis, rooms were built around a central courtyard. The purpose of this central courtyard is to create a breathing space inside the home and to attract beneficial cosmic energies.
    l Kitchen should be in the south-east, the dining room in the west, the living room and the master bedroom in the south-west, the guest bedroom in the north-west, the bath room in the East or the North, the prayer room in the North-East and so also the well and water supply.Sleep with your head towards the east or the south.
    Avoid clutter in your home. Keep only those things that are useful, aesthetically pleasing or personally significant. Doors and windows should face east. This ensures the maximum benefit of morning sunlight, which, as we all know, contains the life-sustaining Vitamin D. Limit the number of openings to the west and south as afternoon sunlight isn’t as beneficial. Doors and windows should also allow for maximum natural ventilation and light.

      Hi...pl find attached the flat layout of an apartment that I have own and live in. Its on the 4th floor and is the top most floor. I bought it Aug 09 and moved in Dec 09.

      I (age 36) am the bread winner of the family and live with my wife (age 31) and 2 children. (Daughter 6.5 yrs & son 3 yrs)

      Pl have a look and request your valuable inputs on the same.

      The areas marked in red within the apartment is the current positions of things.
      Dear devindrashah,

      I will convert pdf to jpeg & then inform you precisely all the things.
      Prima facie, it shows that your m.bed is in NE & the attach toilet/bath is also in NE part of the house. Both these things are bad. First thing you need to do is stop the use of bath/toi located here & shift your bedroom to SW. You will miss the bath-tub/jacuzzi in your bathroom, but you have no choice my friend. Rest of the things, I will inform to you in detail in coming week as I am flying out of state tonite for a week. In the meantime, plant a tulsi in a tulsi-vrindavan or pot in that NE terrace/balcony & use chandan incense stick inside your house & in front of tulsi everyday in morning & evening. Same applied to pka_fbd as well.

      Btw, Vastushastra has nothing to do with number of people in your house, their age etc. This is used for getting kia/kua number in Feng Shui. Vastushastra is science about Vastu/place of dwelling & is applicable to every resident irrespective of gender, age, caste etc. as it is universal.

      Thanks,
      pka_fbd
      Frankly, yours is one of the good plans I have seen uploaded on this forum till date. Some remedies though need to be done. However, first thing you need to do is to STOP the use of common toilet altogether as it is located in North-NE part of the house. As you have good terrace is NE (which is very good), place a tulsi plant here. It will help you a lot. Rest is fine, but I will inform both of you some vastu tips needed to be done in your homes once I am back in town next week. Till then bear with me & do the above mentioned.

      pka_fbd & devindrashah-

      In your bathrooms in North-NE, place a bowl of raw salt (samudri namak & not refined one which we eat) & change it after every 15 days. Use an exhaust fan as well to keep air clean in all your bathrooms & bathrooms should be clean & neat. Remember is a ROOM at the end of the day.

      Will give some important tips to both of you to enhance positive vibes at your residence.

      And hey, please don't call me SIR....call me real or RA.

      Regards,

      Realacres
      If you are happy, you are successful.

          Thanks a lot RA for the advice and appreciating the layout. Sure will take care of the NE bathroom. In-fact, we have decided to keep this bathroom just for guest or in emergency purposes. We will place the washing machine for in this bathroom and will not be used for taking bath. This NE bathroom has dual light, fresh air fan and a window. Looking forward on your inputs for the whole house. However, please let us know on these aspects as well -

          1. West entrance - is it good or some thing better can be done.
          2. Kitchen layout and position
          3. servant room point of view
          4. master bed room layout

          Thanks

            Hi Realacres,
            Please guide me regarding Vastu for the attached flat layout.
            The flat is on 8th Floor and the adjacent flat(Towards North Side) is a refuge flat. Is that a problem (i.e having refuge flat on North side)

            After going through all your posts i understood the following wrt the attached flat Layout.

            Problem Areas are:- Cut in NE and SW corners - Is that Ok?
            - Bramhasthan have Beam, Wardrobe and Refrigerator. Is it Fine?
            - Can the small room on East side be used as Study Room/ Childrens Room/Guest BR and Puja room as per requirement?
            - What should be the location of Shoe Rack - Outside the House and Which corner?


            If you find any other problems please mention it with remedies.
            Also please give some remedies for above mentioned problems.
            Also please mention the good points about the Layout.

            If the Entrance to small room on East side is modified from Northwest Side (as per Layout) to SouthWest side, which entrance location is Good. The reason to modify the Enterance for small Room is to swap the position of Dinning/Sitting arrangement in Living.



            Please Guide.

              Gateway to bliss

              Gateway to bliss
              Madan Gupta Spatu


              The entrance of a house very truly reflects the status of owners. In ancient times the entrance gates and doors of forts, temples, havelis and residences of important people were huge and majestic made of iron or strong wood. An attractive front door of a haveli reflected the personality and status of the family.
              • The front door is considered as the mouth of the “Vaastu Purusha”. So the front door in a home should be large and inviting. The ideal height for a door should be approximately three times its width. The main door should be larger than the other doors opening into a house.
              • Vaastu recommends more open space in the north and east to enable the pleasant morning light and constant light from the northern side to permeate the house. Thus it is advisable that the main entrance is either in the north or in east. But it’s not a hard and fast rule.
              • Designing and placing the main door and frame is an essential part of a building construction hence adapting the right dimensions, material and position ensures that the house is not deprived of good energy which would in turn affect the occupants over a period of time.
              • The fourth side of the door frame which rests firmly on the floor represents the element composed of fulfillment, wholesomeness and stability, so a main door frame which is four sided is considered very good and is even better if it has windows on either side. But nowadays due to even marble flooring, only three sided frames are fitted instead of old type of Chokhat.
              • The main door should have two shutters and open to the inside of the building. Teak is a good material for the entrance door. It is best to have two entrances to a house. The exit door should be smaller than the entrance, and it should have only one shutter. If there are two external doors for the house, they should not be set in a straight line.
              • The main door of the house should not be below ground level. Neither should the main door be in the centre of the house, nor in the extreme corners. The main door should not be situated across from the main door of another house. The entrance doors of two houses should not be exactly opposing one another. Neither should two houses share a common entrance.
              • If the entrance of the house is to the south, there should be no balcony or verandah in front of the door.
              • It is good to set gates to both the property and the entrance to the house on the north or east sides. It is also better to have the main door on the west wall. It is not advised to have the main entrance on the south side.
              • There should not be any abandoned, wrecked buildings in front of the main entrance. Avoid having an underground tank, septic tank under the main entrance because in case the tank has to be opened or cleaned, it can be very inconvenient if it is right in front of the main door.
              • It is pleasing to decorate entrance with pictures or statues of Laksmi, Ganesh or Kuvera and auspicious signs such as OM or the Swastika or the any religious icon as per one’s faith and religion as it is better to see some pleasant images instead of just a plain door. Inauspicious pictures like sword or dogs should not be on the door.
              • The main door should have a threshold as it will prevent ants and other pests from entering the house. should not be kept in front of the door, but towards one side.
              • The door should not be slanted, sliding, or circular.
              • It is preferable to have two doors, an entrance and an exit door. However, the exit door should be smaller than the entrance door. The fresh air entering into the house through the entrance, will go out through the exit and thus be forced to pass through the rest of the house, thus allowing the house to breathe.
              • Doors should be planned to ensure good circulation of air but three doors in one straight line should be avoided.
              • The main door should open inside and clockwise. If the door swings open in a clockwise motion, you use your left hand to open the door for the guests, thus enabling you to guide them in with your right hand.
              • Doors that creak indicate bad workmanship and that the door hinges are not well oiled. The main entrance door should be fixed on an auspicious day as per Muhurat after performing Vaastu puja. Traditionally the labour or contractors still demand yellow laddoos from the owners while installing the main door of the house. Sweets bring happiness in labour and yellow symbolises auspiciousness.

                Kitchen is undoubtedly a vital part of any home. According to Vaastu, the kitchen should ideally be located in the South-East, the direction of God of Fire. If that looks a bit difficult, you can also move your kitchen in the North-West.

                A bedroom located in the North direction would lead to unrest in the family. It should always be in the South. Indeed, direction of your bed also matters a lot. Try to place your bed in such a way that your head is towards the south. Also, beware not to sleep with your legs towards the south.

                And, the East direction is considered to the best one for the bathroom.

                Hope you all like the tips……
                Thank you so much for such a interesting information.
                This information will very useful for the people who are planning to buy house...

                  Hello Experts,

                  I've booked the unit-12 attached (South facing but builder is ready to change the Main door to make West facing). Can you please take a look and let me how is Unit-12 with respect to Vaastu. Other is Unit-1 which looks more feasible with Vaastu. Please have a look at the floor plans and request to do let me know your inputs/advices.

                  I'm interested in Unit-12 since it is having two sides (NE) open. Unit-1 has SE open but one more builder has constructed flats very closely so air circulation will not be that good. Thanks in advance guys..

                  Thanks

                      Please help RA/Vastu Experts

                      Hi Realacres/Vastu Experts,
                      Please guide me regarding Vastu for the attached flat layout.
                      The flat is on 8th Floor and the adjacent flat(Towards North Side) is a refuge flat. Is that a problem (i.e having refuge flat on North side).
                      I have already booked it.

                      After going through all your posts i understood the following wrt the attached flat Layout.

                      Problem Areas are:-
                      - Small Cuts in NE and SW corners - Is that Ok? Any remedy for this.
                      - Small Bedroom falls behind the entrance - Is that OK/not ok.....Any Remedy for this
                      - Bramhasthan have Beam, Wardrobe and Refrigerator. Is it Fine?
                      - Can the small room on East side be used as Study Room/ Children's Room/Guest BR and Puja room according to requirement?
                      - What should be the location of Shoe Rack - At the Flat Entrance, Outside the House and Which corner?
                      - Toilets on North side - Any remedy



                      Is Vastu for Individual room is important or Flat is IMP.

                      For example - Take Small Bedroom ( Which Lies behind Enterance and we are planning to make it as Puja Room/Childrens Bedroom-Study Room/ Guest Room as per need). Now for this single room should we consider N,E,S and W sides. i.e Puja corner in NE of this room. Bed in SW of this room etc.
                      The small room entrance is NW. If we modify it and shift to SW is that ok.( to swap the position of Dinning/Sitting arrangement in Living)


                      Also planning to put a common Wash Basin in NW portion of Living Terrace.
                      Washing Machine on NW Portion of Dry Balocny.
                      Regarding Godrej Kapat (Valuables) in which room it should be placed, Master Bedroom/Parents Bedroom ( Sandwiched between Kitchen and MBR)

                      I have attached Tenatative Layout for Bed and other item locations.
                      Please comment on it

                      If you find any other problems please mention it with remedies.
                      Also please give some remedies for above mentioned problems.
                      Also please mention the good points about the Layout.



                      Please Guide.
