Vastu For House Structure


The importance of good foundations and structures can never be over stressed. According to Vastu, every good thing springs from the right structure of a building, whether for a house or for an office. Unfortunately, most architects dont recognize Vastu Shastra as a science and completely ignore its principles when constructing buildings. Their ignorance stems from the fact that Vastu is not part of the study material in most architecture schools. However, lately, several universities have recognized the value of applying Vastu for correct orientations and have integrated it in their course curriculum. They strongly believe that the principles laid down by this traditional science of construction holds a lot of reason. While architecture only deals with the technical aspect of constructing and decorating a building, Vastu Shastra relates to the universe, delivering peace, prosperity, health and happiness to the people.

Picture-1.1 The picture 1.1 depicts a wrongly constructed house. This kind of construction has the ability to degrade the owners prestige, bring in financial problems, lead to health defects, stress, and much more. The problem with this structure is it is built in the north east direction within the Compound wall. Such orientations are not auspicious.

This direction is called Southeast or Agni. A house constructed at this corner (within the compound premises) is inhabitable for humans. It will bring in losses, failures, stress, financial issues, quarrels, health problems, court cases, and much more to the residents.

Picture-1.2

Picture-1.3 The Northwest corner is also known as Vayavya or Vayu. This particular direction has the capability to make a man really RICH or very POOR according to the usage. This particular picture shows wrong usage of the northwest direction. A house built like this will lead to mental torture, pain, family problems, disputes, and a life time of unhappiness. Never construct a house such as this.

This is the right kind of construction. It helps the positive energies flow and bring-in prosperity. Residents of such houses will always be happy, successful and abundant. Houses in such directions attract a lot of money.

Picture-1.4

Things To Keep In Mind When Constructing A House:


The very first brick of a foundation must be laid in the eastern or northern part of the house. When digging the plot one must never start from the west, south or southwest direction. The very first room has to be constructed at southwest side.

Construction of houses on a square or rectangular plot is extremely important and excellent from every aspect. However, if one opts for a rectangular shape, the proportion of the sides must never be more than two ratio one. Bigger sized plots are more favorable, as they tend to bring wealth. But they must not contain cleavages, or cracks. The house must always be open from every side, this means it must never be contiguous to any other building (two houses must never have a common wall). Also, a house must never be crammed between two houses. Plots with triangular shapes are extremely inauspicious. A small plot sandwiched between two bigger plots is inauspicious, and the owner of such a plot can undergo a lot of problem.

Vastu For House


A house is a collaboration of rooms with precisely defined entry and exit points. Now its alright that you have hired an architect to construct it. But keep in mind that your house would be the architect of your destiny in times to come. So lets just try a little vastu for house to ensure that all natural energies and powers, including the solar and cosmic energies, are there to bless you.

South-east represents the most auspicious kitchen setting. Alternatively, consider a north-west alignment as your second choice. Again, Vaastu Shaastra sincerely hopes that you do not assign your kitchen the following corners o South-West o Center o North-East Still better, if you set up your cooking corner in the east. Priority-wise, ensure an eastern or northern kitchen entrance. Avoid placing your gas stove exactly in front of the kitchen entrance.

Vastu for Pooja Room

Sunrays light up the north-east first, so why dont you consider north-east first for your pooja room? Especially if you love to hang out with prosperity, happiness, inner strength, health, and wealth. Do you own a big plot of land? In case you do, then assign the center of your ground floor to your deities. Arrange for proper ventilation and a threshold, if you wish to elicit a positive response from the deities. So do you worship? We hope you do, and do it facing east.

Vastu for Bedroom

Would you mind if we ask you to bring up your bedroom, specifically the master bedroom in southwest? Well, Vaastu doesnt mind, so why do you??

This science of architecture has always favored rectangular and square bedrooms, then, who are we to turn against the principles proven time and again? Well, do you head your family? Just asking because our traditional science has always favored the family heads using the Master bedroom. We hope you understand.

Vastu for Bathroom -

Prefer North as well as North-west alignments for your bathroom. If possible, avoid South-west and South-east set-ups. Further avoid constructing your bathroom in proximity to Pooja Room and Kitchen. Prefer north or east alignments for your bathroom entrance.

Doors must never be placed at the center of a wall. South facing houses must have north facing entrances so that they fall at the eastern half. North facing houses must have north facing entrances so that they fall at the eastern half of the side. West facing houses must have their entrance towards West, to make sure the main door falls at the Northern half of the side. The entrance for east facing houses must be fixed towards East, to make sure the main door falls towards the Northern half of the side. The main gates of two houses facing each other must never open towards each other. Doors such as these are very inauspicious. Teak is the best wood for making doors and windows.

01. Place to keep tame animals, cattle & birds : The North-West of a plot/land is the best side to keep the pet animals, cattle & birds. In a house planning, Bedroom for unmarried girls, Guest room & room for Granary also must be on the same side. If the North-West increases or decreases in area, it affects the health of living beings. Kitchen may be provided in North-West though the first choice for Kitchen is South-East portion of the house. 02. Bedroom & way of sleeping : Ancient sages suggested that the place attached to the room which is towards the North-West side on the North is good to be used as a Bedroom. It is good to lie down on bed keeping one's head on the West side, because the Sun rises in the East, the presiding deity of which is Indra, the Lord of the devatas (Gods). After rising from bed in the morning, if one offers one's salutations, turning towards the East, it amounts to offering salutations to all the Gods. It is also recommended that one may sleep on one's bed putting the head towards the South and look towards the North. The presiding deity is Kuber, the Lord of Wealth. So it goes without saying that one is worshipping Kubera by lying on bed facing North. If one sleeps putting the head on the East and looking towards the West, one offers salutations to Varuna, the presiding deity of the West. The salutations benefit very much one's philosophical thinking,belief and practice. But,under any circumstances one should not sleep putting the head towards the North and looking towards the South, because the presiding deity of the South is Yama, Lord of death. Only the corpse of a person is laid on pyre, putting the head towards the North, facing the South. If one sleeps putting the head towards the North, one may have nightmares and spends sleepless nights. 03. Place for keeping valuable things & Store:The best place for keeping valuable things and ornaments is the central portion on the North, the presiding deity of which is Kubera,Lord of Wealth. It is the place to use as Strong room also. 04. Place for keeping Medicines: Our ancestors suggested that medicines should be kept in the North (towards North-East), because the Sun-rays which have nourishing quality required for human health, fall at dawn, on the medicines and make them powerful to help human beings become hale and healthy. If a few more bedrooms are required in the family, this room may be converted into a bedroom. 05. Room for Worship or Temple : At the Sun-rise the rays of the Sun fall on the NorthEast side of any house. So it was decided that the room for Worship should be on the North-East. If the building is raised on the North-East, the owner of the house/building will have mental worry and becomes dull. Outside, It is advised to plant a Basil (Tulsi) plant and worship it daily. 06. Labour Room : Years ago, Adequate arrangements were made in the house of joint families only for the delivery of pregnant ladies & the labour room used to be constructed on the East in the house. The only reason for this was that the sun rays which give health at dawn were falling on both the mother & the child. But, health science has developed now by leaps and bounds and health centres/nursing homes have been opened for this purpose. If it isn't necessary, this place may be used for a drawing cum living room with no heavy items inside.

07. Bath Room : It is necessary that the water should flow on the North, North-East & East sides. So our ancestors used to construct Bathroom on the East inside the house or on the open space outside the house. If the owner doesn't need many bathrooms, this place may be clubbed with the Drawing cum living room. 08. Room for churning Curd :This was constructed on the East near South-East corner. Influence of fire is seen much in the South-East. The effect of bacteria is also less here. Another reason for having the room for churning on the South-East is that it is very near to the Kitchen. 09. Kitchen : The presiding deity of South-East is Agni, the God of Fire. Therefore, the sages laid sown the rule that kitchen should be constructed on the South-East. According to Hygienic Science the sun-rays indirectly help leaf vegetables which contain the ingredients necessary for food, proteins and nourishing qualities. 10. Place to keep Oil : Now a days it is not necessary to have a manually operated grinding machine to squeeze oil,as there are mixies & grinders run by elect. current. In old days people used to have a grinding room separately in the South leaving the SouthEast corner to keep a grinding machine. It was convenient for cooks to reach oil etc. If a separate room for this purpose is not required, this place may be used to provide either a store-room for grocery or a toilet. 11. Lounge : This should be provided in the middle of the South side so that the members of a family may take rest after lunch but the sages didn't recommend to sleep in lounge in nights. If a lounge is not required in the family, this is a suitable place for a bedroom with attached/non-attached toilet. 12. W/C Toilets : This should be built on South & West, but not on the South-West under any circumstances. 13. Room for keeping weapons etc : The weapons, heavy things and lumber must be kept in the room built in the South-West corner. If a specific place for weapons is not required, this is the best place for Master's Bedroom but weapons shouldn't be kept in the Master's Bedroom. 14. Study Room : The place on the West towards South-West is the best one for studies because this place is always influenced by the planets Mercury, the Jupiter, the Moon and the Venus. Jupiter accelerates desire to study and curiosity to learn more & more. Mercury developes intelligence. The Moon lays strength on the nerves of the brain whereas the Venus functions like a coordinator and makes the man efficient. One should sit facing North-East, East or North.
