    In today’s world, each one of us is struggling to be successful and powerful. Being fueled by positive energy and having a supportive house/workplace are the key ingredients for a blissful and successful life. Here, Vastu plays an important role. Scientific studies conducted in this area have proven that positive surroundings and good vibes do maximum contribution to the success of individuals.

    As per vastu rules, all the directions are equally good to orient a house, but still West facing houses have somehow become a third choice for people; first and second choices being North and East oriented houses, respectively. The reason why West facing Homes are lesser preferred by many people is the belief or rather a misbelief that all West oriented houses are bad as per vastu. As a fact, West facing homes can be as auspicious as North or East oriented ones, if and only if it follows certain vastu rules.

    West facing house Vastu – Rules, Tips and Guidelines

    As per Vastu for West oriented houses, the main door of the home can be located in any of the two Padas i.e. 5th or 6thon the West side from North West side.

    From the image above, one can understand that West side of the house i.e. the length from the North-West (NW) corner to the South-West (SW) corner is divided in nine equal parts; each part is called as Pada (or step) in Vastu Shastra. The north-west Pada is 1st and the south-west Pada is 9th.

    What to avoid:

      Avoid entrance in 7th, 8th and 9th Pada of the West side.
      Never locate a bore-well or water sump in south-west of the house.
      Never buy a plot or flat having extension in south or south-west.
      Avoid a plot that’s higher in north than south.
      Never have a kitchen in south-west of the house.
      Never have a bathroom or toilet in the south-west zone if the entry is west facing.
      Floor of the West facing home should be higher than the East.
      It is suggested that less open space be kept at the front of a West facing plot.
      Fixing two above mentioned Hanumanji's tiles outside the door will help.
      West facing houses are most suitable for people having profession like teachers, politicians, religious priests and corporate business men.

  • What exactly is a West facing flat/property?

    To put it simply - stand inside the house or on the plot and face out of the main door or where the door is supposed to be. The direction that you will face then will be the orientation of the house. So, if the direction you then face is west, it will be termed as a West facing house or property.

    Given below are some simple remedies for rectifying vaastu dosh in the south facing property and house.

      If south is increased, cut it and make it into a square/ rectangular shape.
      Fill up the depression or holes in the south and make it higher than all the other direction but lower than the southwest direction. Keep heavy furniture in this direction.
      In the house or workplace, sit with your back to the south. To avoid death (Yama), keep your face towards health (Soma, the north) to receive blessings of Soma. In this way, you receive the strength and wisdom of your ancestors.
      The wall of southern side should be made thicker and heavier with lesser openings in the from of doors, windows and ventilators. Build a heavy stone boundary wall, fence or trellis in this direction.
      If open area in the south direction is available equal to or more than the height of the building, tall trees or dense hedge can be planted.
      Indoor plants in this direction should be of heavy type such as an indoor palm, rubber plant or umbrella tree planted in big heavy concrete pots.
      Use red colour symbolically in this area outside of your house to appease its ruler Mars.
      Red coloured photo or painting of Lord hanumana or your favourite action hero should be installed on the southern wall of this sector. Mars is the planetary lord of this direction. He rules courage, bodily actions, adventurous sports and fearlessness.
      Install Mangala Yantra in the south direction with due procedure in the Shukla Paksh .
