Vaastu Shastra / Faq

back to intro

 

Q: It is said that according to Vaastu, one should not buy a house next to the temple; it means you should not share the same compound wall. It is said to be inauspicious. Is it true?

Generally, it is believed that the house next to a temple is inauspicious, which is wrong. If the temple is in the southern or western side of the house, it is good as the south or west direction of the house gains weight. The flow of positive energy gets interrupted, if the temple is in the eastern or northern direction of the plot. The positive energy continuously flows in the house in case of open space in the eastern and northern sections of the house, hence the temple in east or north is not inauspicious.


Q: In the master bedroom, where should I place my safe in which I keep my valuables. I do not want to place it in the wrong direction.

Always put the valuables in the locker/safe, which is heavy in weight and place it in the south-west portion of the bedroom.


Q: The southeast room of my house is used as a master bedroom. But this is against vaastu principle. What steps can be taken to avoid the bad effect?


The joining point of east and south is called agney’s corner as per the directions of vaastu. It is very clear that the word agney means fire. If the bedroom is in agney’s room, it can have bad effects on health and wealth of male member. This can result in ailments related to fire-elements like high BP, high sugar, short-temper etc. It might also lead to unwanted arguments between husband and wife.

To get good results from vaastu subject, it is better that the agney’s room is used as kitchen. But if there is no other alternative, leave one-fourth of the eastern portion of agney’s room, make a partition and use the balance three-fourth portion as bedroom. By wearing a pearl ring and good quality natural crystal chain (both in silver), the bad effects of fire-elements will be reduced.


Q:Is it possible to get rid of vaastu dosh by performing graha-shanti and vaastu-shanti (religious methods)?

Performing graha-shanti is a symbol of your religious belief. You are misunderstanding the main aim and real meaning of vaastu-shanti. The real meaning of vaastu-shanti is the correct balancing of the five elements of vaastu subject. Making changes as per vaastu principle is the best way to get rid of vaastu dosh permanently.


Q: The door in south-east is the entrance to our flat. Is it wrong? If so, what steps should we take to keep the evil effects at bay?

The joining corner of east and south is called agney. The eastern part of agney corner is called east-agney and southern part is called south-agney. If the door is placed in the south-agni of your flat, then it is good, Because of the energy flow from south-agney in the house, you will be blessed with good health and wealth.

Against this, if the door is in east-agney, it leads to friction, theft, and other domestic issues. If the door is in east-agney of the flat, construct new walls in the north and west direction of this door and shift this door to that area, so that the door will now be placed in the south-agney zone, which will be auspicious.


Q:We purchased a constructed house, in which the toilet in the master bed room is built in the southwest corner. Is this against vaastu? If so, what step do we take to avoid the bad effect?

The southwest portion of the house is high and heavy, which provides stability. The presence of the toilet creates a bad effect leading to financial losses and ill-health. Raise the floor level of the toilet, fill the main drainage hole with mud and lay the new drainage pipe line on the ground level to ward off the ill effects.


Q:I would like to know where a person should place his head while sleeping and in which part of the house the puja shelf to placed?
 
The human body contains the magnetic power in the head and iron in the feet, and the magnetic rays continuously flow in the house from the north and there are iron contents in south. When we place our head in the north while sleeping, there is negative energy due to which a person can spend a sleepless night. Against this, if the head is placed in the south while sleeping, it attracts positive magnetic power and a person sleeps peacefully. The bed should be kept in the south-west direction only. The puja shelf should be placed at northwest and one should perform the puja by facing the west.


Q:I am staying in a rented house, which is facing the east. My bedroom is in the southeast room and the kitchen is in southwest room of the house. Recently I read in the book that, for each Rashi (zodiac sign) a particular direction is suitable? If yes, my rashi is Mithun (Gemini). Please tell me, which direction my house should face?

It is neither practical nor possible to stay in a house that faces the suitable direction as per your zodiac sign. The contents of the book might not be right. But the room in the southeast of the house (called agney’s room) is more suitable as a kitchen. The flow of fire element is more in this direction; so if food is cooked here, it helps to kill the bacteria in the food. The male person sleeping in the agney’s room may suffer from diseases related to fire like high BP, diabetes, heart problem and will be prone to losing temper. The kitchen in the southwest room gives controlling power to the housewife.

It is impossible to make the changes as per vaastu in the rented house, but you can get positive results by utilising the agney’s room as kitchen, southwest room as storeroom and northwest room as the bedroom.


Q:I bought a flat recently. It is on eighth floor with the entrance at north-west and the kitchen is to the right of entrance. I would like to know if there is any vaastu dosh? Is vaastu applicable to a flat in the higher floors?

Vaastu affects subject through the earthing power, magnetic power, gravitation force, sunrays, natural energies etc. The elements, fire, water, air, earth all contribute to the effects of vaastu. When you stay at higher floors, the effect of earthing power gets reduced while that of the sky is very strong. As far as the effects of the rest of the elements are concerned, they are same in upper and lower floors.

The kitchen in the northwest room is fine but if the southeast room is being utilised as a bedroom, then it will have a bad effect on the person who uses it. Utilise the southeast room as a kitchen and northwest room as children’s bedroom. Else utilise the northeast room as a children’s bedroom instead of southeast room. Shift the door from north vayavya to north eshan of the hall in north of the flat, to be safe from the bad effects of this vaastu dosh.


Q: Even though we stay in the same house, the effects of vaastu I think change. How is this possible?

It is a fact that vaastu plays a vital role in every incident of your life. However if you think that it is only the vaastu of your own house that affects your life, you are wrong.

Even the surroundings of your house will affect your life. The effect of vaastu depends on the correct harmony between positive and negative energy of the house. Also the vaastu of places that you regularly visit will have an impact in your life.


Q: I am constructing a new house where the bedroom has a beam. Is it ok to place the bed under the beam?

A If the beam is in south or western walls of the bedroom, you need not to worry about it. But if the beam is in north or eastern part of the bedroom, get it rectified during construction.


Q The main door of my house is in eastern direction with a beam at the entrance. We do not have any seating below this, but will the beam have ill-effects? What should we do now?

The decision to rectify this vaastu dosh should have been taken while constructing the house, because it is not possible to do so after the construction is complete. However this is not a serious vaastu flaw, so you need not be too worried


Q: My bedroom is located in the Southeast corner of the first floor and the kitchen is located exactly below this. Will this arrangement have any bad effect ?


There is an excessive flow of the fire element in Southeast room, which will have adverse effects on the health and wealth of the male member of the family. It can result in financial loss and increase the chances of contracting diseases related to fire element like diabetes, high BP, heart problem etc. This can also cause unnecessary arguments between husband and wife. To safeguard yourself from the ill effects of fire elements, it is better to use a room in any other direction except the one in the Southeast corner.

Make the partition in one-third portion (east to west) of Southeast room and use the rest (about three-fourth portions) of the room as a bedroom. Fix a window in South agney, if there is no other alternative. This arrangement will reduce the bad effect of fire element.


Q: My husband has been very aggressive lately and shouts at almost everything. Can you please suggest some changes in the arrangement of the items of my house to get positive vibrations.


The cutoff Northeast corner of your house or the positioning of the staircase and toilet in Northeast or the placement of the bedroom in Southeast... either of the above vaastu dosh can be the reason behind your problem. You can make your husband wear natural pearl in ring and crystal chain, both in silver. This will help in cooling his temper. But for a better and a permanent solution, try to rectify the vaastu dosh in your house with the help of an expert.


Q: Recently, I purchased a duplex house on the first floor. There are two zig-zag curves in the West wall of the house. Is this a vaastu dosh?


The zig-zag curves in the West wall of the house will not have any negative impact, but the Northeast corner should not be cutoff. If you are concerned only about the curves, rest assured there is no cause to worry. You can live happily in this flat without any tension.


Q: The main door of my house is in the East and there is a beam at the entrance. We do not have any seating below this, but does it bring any negativity in the house? If yes, what steps can I take to prevent the flow of negative energy?


The decision for rectifying this vaastu dosh should have been taken while construction of the house, because rectifying this vaastu dosh is not possible after construction. However, this vaastu dosh does not come under serious category and you need not worry about this.


Q: I am living in a West facing house. The plots in East and North of my house are being sold. I want to buy one plot for parking and gardening. Please tell me, which of the two plots should I buy?


If the North of your house is zero degree (or it varies by five-ten degrees) then you can purchase any one of the plot of your choice. But if the North of your house is less than zero degree, then you should invest in the Northern plot. Otherwise it is best to purchase the plot in the East.


Q: I had constructed this house under the guidance of Vaastu expert. Our financial condition has improved after entering this house, but we are incurring wasteful expenses, dispute between family members and tension. I have installed a crystal ShreeYantra, after puja to get rid of my problems. But the problem remains as it is. I want to know the reason for the problems though my house has been constructed as per Vaastu. Please give me suggestion to come out of these problems.

A well-known proverb is that, ‘A small mistake could be the reason for a serious difficulty’. You are one of the victims of the small mistake. It is true that, this house is constructed as per Vaastu principles. Borewell situated in east-eshan and underground water tank in north-eshan of the open area is the main reason for financial improvement.

As per Vaastu principle, the cook should face east while cooking. However, this principle applies only when the kitchen is situated in south-east corner room of the house. In case the kitchen is not possible in south-east corner room, then the north-west corner room of the house is also advisable for kitchen.

Fire element is developed in Brahma-Sthal (Centre Point) of the house, because of the gas stove kept in the agney’s corner of the kitchen of north-west corner room, which is coming in the Brahma-Sthal of the house. Vaastu principle does not permit fire element in the Brahma-Sthal of the house. The fire element in Brahma-Sthal, results in financial loss alongwith dispute between family members and mental agony. To come out of these problems, you have to shift the gas stove, which is kept in agney corner of the northwest room to west direction of this room so that the cook should face west direction while cooking.


Q: I plan to buy a flat on the fifth floor. The common staircase for the building touches the northern wall and is at a distance of two meters from the northeast corner. Is the placement of the staircase right?


I do not think you should invest in this flat as the house has not been built as per the vaastu norms. A common staircase for the building built near the Northeast wall of the flat is very inauspicious according to vaastu. This is a serious vaastu dosh.


Q: I own a house which is South facing. There is a temple in the Eastern side of my house. Thet distance between the compound wall of my house and the temple is about three feet. Is is alright? If not, please suggest an alternative that can help solve this problem.

During the construction of the house, proper care should be taken of the vaastu of the surrounding areas and also the vaastu of the neighbour’s house. For example, the staircase constructed in South agney of the neighbours will come in North eshan, and West vayavya of the neighbours will come in East eshan of the house.

In this situation, the vaastu of the neighbour’s house will create vaastu dosh for this house, and the person who lives in this house will suffer from its bad effects. The east direction of your house gets heavier due to the situation of the temple. This will have negative impact. Construct underground water tanks in East eshan and North eshan by leaving diagonal line in open area of East and North of your house.

Q: My flat is L-shaped at the north-west because of the lift. due to this, the north-east portion of the flat is getting extended. Please give me a remedy of this vaastu dosh.

A There is no complete solution for this vaastu dosh. It is not possible because the construction of the flat has already been completed. In the north-vayavya portion of the flat, construct a new cross wall by increasing the north-east, up to the lift area, and leaving a little space from that wall. This will decrease the bad effect of this vaastu dosh.

Q: vaastu has been followed since ancient times, but even today there are many people who do not believe in vaastu. How important is it to follow vaastu? The foundation of Vaastu was laid in the shastra (scriptures) when it was written about in ancient times. the principles written in the scriptures were relevant to situations of those times. The situation and necessity today, is very different. This is because the situation and necessity of human life changes as the time changes. Any principle written down need not be a conclusion. Necessity is the mother of invention, hence as the time changes, proper corrections are to be made as per requirement.

It is only because of the lack of awareness and improper guidance that people find it difficult to believe in or follow vaastu. That said, it is impossible to refrain from the effects of the energies generated through vaastu. the effects of earthing power, magnetic force, gravitation force, sun rays, natural energy etc., affect everybody equally on the bases of the five elements —water, fire, air, earth, sky.


Q: I think that my house is constructed as per vaastu, because we have financially improved after entering into this house. But I am having frequent disputes with my wife and also facing difficulties in recovering money given to others. A vaastu expert told me that south face house becomes inauspicious. Please guide me.

People assume that a south facing house is inauspicious. However, this assumption is absolutely wrong. Problems will never arise if vaastu principles are correctly followed at the time of construction of the house. The vaastu power increased due to the borewell in north eshan of the house is the reason for your financial improvement. The vaastu dosh due to the septic tank in north of the open area, scarcity of fire element in the house, the doors in east agney of southwest room and south of boundary wall etc., are the reason for your problems.

In vaastu books it’s advised to construct the septic tank in the north direction, but as per my view to construct the septic tank in vayavya is better. The north direction of this house would be more than minus 20-25 degrees, by seeing the seriousness of your problems. Because of which, the septic tank constructed in the north is coming in the north eshan of the open area and the kitchen in north-west room is coming in north of the house, which is wrong as per vaastu, due to which altercations between husband and wife and financial loss are being created.

Fill with mud the septic tank in the north of the open area and construct a new septic tank in the west vayavya of the open area to get rid of this vaastu dosh. Make the southwest room as master bedroom to live a happily married life, to be safe from problems related to health and wealth of the male member and to avoid differences of opinion between husband and wife.

Shifting the kitchen from the northwest to the southeast of the house is the only better alternative to take advantage of the fire element of vaastu subject and to use the hall for drawing room. Shift the door from east agney of southwest room and south of boundary wall to south agney of southeast room and boundary wall to decrease the negative and increase the positive energy into the house. Your problem will come to an end and you will realise that the south face house is auspicious compared to houses facing other directions.


Q: We stay in a flat, which has a south facing door, our bed room in north east and south west is our kitchen. Many people have said that it is not good vaastu for a family. My problem is that we cannot make any changes, as it is a flat, though our own. Kindly suggest a remedy.

The kitchen in the southeast gives auspicious results of fire elements as per vaastu, which develops health and wealth. The controlling power of the house comes in the hands of the housewife, due to the kitchen in the southwest, because the southwest direction is the symbol of stability. No other remedy can be effective, except that the vaastu dosh should be rectified as per vaastu. The changes can be done in the flat, if you want to do so.

The bedroom in northeast of the flat is not recommended for the couple as per vaastu. It will be better to make the northwest room for master bedroom and northeast room for children’s bedroom. Keep the bed in southwest and leave empty space in northeast portions of northeast room, if there is no other alternative.


Q: The east agney of my plot is extended. Is there any vaastu dosh in constructing a house on this plot, if so, what to do? How should I utilise the extended portion in east agney?

The east eshan direction has vanished, due to increase of east agney, and this vaastu dosh is a serious one. The bad result of this vaastu dosh creates many problems including harming the life of house owner and his first son and obstructing in lineage. There is no other alternative than to divide the extended portion of east agney by constructing a boundary wall to be safe from this seriously effected vaastu dosh.


Q: Since last two years, we are living in this rented house. We were living happily before shifting into this house, but we are facing financial loss, quarrels and ill health etc., after entering in this house. It’s not possible to make any big changes. Please guide us.

You were living happily before shifting into this house, but you are facing problems ever since you shifted here. Hence, it clearly states that changes in vaastu have resulted in changes of lifestyle. The vaastu dosh, namely, cut-off north-eshan of the plot, cut-off northeast and staircase in north eshan, cause financial loss, house quarrels and many such problems. Severe illness of the female member can take place due to sleeping in the eshan corner of the northeast room and the health and wealth of the male person will be adversely affected due to sleeping in agney corner of the southeast room. It will also increase disease connected with fire elements. Shift the kitchen from the west to southeast room and make the northwest room the bedroom. Keep the northeast empty and place some heavy furniture in the southwest of every room, till you can shift from this house. Instead of spending money to make changes in rented house, it’s better to immediately shift to another house, which should be as per vaastu norms, to get rid of your problems.


Q: Last year I purchased this constructed house and confirmed that the previous owner sold this house due to the problems faced in this house, like divorce from his wife, being framed falsely, legal hassles, loss in business etc. I am afraid that the same incidents may happen with me. Can I start living in this house without any changes? Otherwise what changes are required, so that I can live happily without any problems in this house.

The incidents faced by previous owner of this house is natural, because of the vaastu dosh like toilet, bathroom in the eshan corner of the open area, septic tank in agney corner, underground water tank in north vayavya, gas stove kept in eshan corner of the kitchen, door fixed in wrong place etc., in this house. You have already done a mistake by purchasing this vaastu dosh effected house without taking the advice of any vaastu consultant.

You should not repeat the mistake by living in this house without rectifying the vaastu dosh of this house, otherwise you have to face almost the same problems, as the previous owner faced. The following changes are required to rectify the vaastu dosh of this house:
Demolish the toilet and bathroom in open area of the eshan. Fill with mud the septic tank in agney corner and convert the underground water tank in north vayavya, as a septic tank.

Construct new underground water tanks in east eshan and north eshan of the open area in eshan, by leaving a diagonal line.
Construct new toilet and bathroom in open area of west vayavya by leaving little space from the northern wall of the house and boundary wall.

Shift the door from east agney of the boundary wall, east agney and north vayavya of agney and vayavya room to, east eshan of the boundary wall, north and south of agney’s room, east eshan and west vayavya of the north-west room.
Fix a new door in east eshan of north east room in such a way that more than two doors should not face each other.
Make the agney’s room as kitchen and keep the gas stove in agney corner of this room in such a way that the cook should face east while cooking. Utilise the north west room for children’s bedroom and north east room for a drawing room.


Q: In my house, the kitchen is on the ground floor and toilet/bathroom on the first floor in the north, master bedroom in the south east room and south west bed room for my son. I am having problems to find a suitable job. This has been happening since we purchased this house seven years back. How to rectify the problem


The kitchen and toilet/bathroom in the north of the house creates financial loss and house quarrels. The vaastu dosh of the north direction effects badly, especially to the life of house wife. Both husband and wife will get bad results because of your bedroom in south east and your son will be weak in studies and obstruction will come in his bright future, due to his bed room in southwest room. To get solution from your problems and to a prosperous life, rectify the vaastu dosh of your house under the guidance of a vaastu expert


Q: I used to run a shop with my partner. Last month, my partner died in the shop. My father thinks it inauspicious and is pressurising me to shut down the shop. I am earning a good profit from this shop, so I do not want to close down the business. Is it okay to close the shop permanently, if anybody died in the shop? Will it create any problem for me?

Ans: Life and death are the rules of nature. You need not to leave the place where the death has taken place thinking it to be inauspicious. No problem will be created in your life by this incident. You can continue your business in this shop without hesitation.


Q: Can we perform puja with the idol facing the north?

While performing the puja if the idol faces the north, you should face the south. If you perform puja facing the west vayavya, keeping the face of the god in the east, then the possibility of completing the desired task will be faster, which will not be possible by facing the south.


Q: My house is constructed from northeast to southwest. There’s open place in the southeast. A road passes through the northeast and through the entrance gate to the lane opposite. We are facing lots of problems. Please help

A road passing through north east of your house, is called Vidhi-Shula (approach road) and this Vidhi-Shula coming to the north east of the house is auspicious. Definitely, the reason behind your problems will be the vaastu dosh of your house, but to get benefit from vaastu, you must attach your house map with all the structural details. Without the map, I can’t guess the vaastu dosh and suggest the possible changes to rectify them. It is also difficult to give you the required changes because you have not sent the detail of surrounding open area of the house. Your dreams to live a happy and prosperous life in this house can be brought into reality, hence it is better to rectify the above cited vaastu dosh under the guidance of a good vaastu consultant.


Q: The main door of my house faces the north. We are suffering from health and finance related problems from the past two years. There is lack of sunlight in my house, can this be a reason for these problems? Please suggest remedies. Can feng-shui items help us?

Different types of vaastu dosh at different directions of the house are the reason for the problems. You have not sent your house map with all structural details, which is compulsory, therefore it is not possible to give solution about your problems through information only about the main door facing of your house.

As per my view, feng-shui items cannot help to get rid of any of the problems, though you can try.


Q: This is my new house plan. Does this plan conform to vaastu principles? I want to start construction of this house, so please comment on the vaastu dosh, if any.

Vaastu analysis of this new house plan:

Construction of underground water tank in north eshan is correct, but you will get more benefit from this underground water tank, if this is constructed near, instead of leaving more space, from the diagonal line. Positive energy will flow into the house from north, but positive energy will decrease from east direction to the house, because of the road in the north and neighbour’s house in the east.

Construction of an additional underground water tank in east eshan, including north eshan will be better to increase the positive energy from east eshan. Excess construction in north eshan and south agney, compared to north vayavya and south neirut is wrong. Self-respect decreases because of excess open area in the west compared to the east.

Problems will be created in finance, because of the septic tank in the east of the open area and toilet/bathroom in the east of the house, and this vaastu dosh will affect the housewife all the more, because this septic tank and toilet/bathroom are coming in eshan direction of the kitchen.

Door fixed in the north vayavya of the boundary wall is wrong and five doors are coming in straight opposite line in the north eshan to the south agney of the northwest and southwest room, through the more than two doors fixed straight opposite, the stored positive energy in the house will come out.

The inflow of negative energy will increase in the rooms through the doors in the south neirut of the northeast room, north vayavya of the south east room and window in the south neirut of northwest room. The health of the housewife will be affected due to the bedroom in the northeast room and also financial loss and quarrels will not stop, because the septic tank in east of the open area will come in agney’s direction of this room. Start construction under the guidance of an expert vaastu consultant, by determining the correct directions of the house and keeping in mind the above vaastu dosh.


Q: My house is constructed without leaving any open place in the south and west, there’s five feet open space in the north and the east faces the main road. In northwest corner, 5’x5’ is used for toilet/bathroom for ground and first floor. The door of the toilet/bathroom in the ground floor is from the outside and for the first floor, it’s from inside. Please clarify the ill effects of closing the northwest corner for the above purpose and suggestions to rectify the same.

The availability of space and requirement to keep in mind is necessary, while following the vaastu principles. The usage of toilet/ bathroom in northwest of the ground floor from outside is not wrong. The open space is in north of the first floor, but north and north eshan direction of first floor is cutoff, because the toilet/bathroom used from inside the house, in north west corner of the first floor is harmful. The door of this toilet/bathroom should be shifted in east direction as in case of the ground floor, so that this toilet/bathroom can be utilised from outside, to be safe from vaastu dosh.


Q: Earlier, I led a happy life in a rented house. Last year, I purchased and started staying in this house (map above) and started a shop in northeast corner room of this plot. I am facing loss in business, altercation with the customers in the shop and dispute with my wife. Please suggest changes to rectify the vaastu dosh of this house and suggest a place to dig a new borewell.


Proper care should be taken at the time of changing vaastu under the guidance of an expert vaastu consultant, human life also changes as per changed vaastu, and it is happening with you also. The following are the vaastu dosh of this house, which are also the reasons for your problems:

Northeast direction of this plot gets heavier due to the shop, and northeast corner is cutoff of the plot because the door is not fixed to enter into the house from the shop. Underground water tank is in the agney corner of the open area.
The neirut direction gets lighter due to the location of the toilet and bathroom. The gas stove kept in eshan corner of the kitchen will also lead to problems. The following changes are required to get rid from the above-cited vaastu dosh:
There is no other alternative then to demolish the shop in northeast corner of the plot, because it is impossible to imagine a happy life without rectifying the vaastu dosh of eshan direction.

Fix the doors in north eshan and east of northwest room and utilise this room for shop, utilise room no. 2 for kitchen and keep the gas stove in the agney corner of room no. 2 in such a way that the cook should face the east while cooking. Fill with mud the underground water tank in the agney corner and construct a new underground water tank in north eshan and dig the new borewell in the east eshan, by leaving the eshan corner of the open area. Shift the door from east agney, north vayavya and south neirut of the eastern room, to east eshan, north eshan and south agney of this room.

This will solve all your problems and improve your financial position within a few days.

Demolish the toilet and bathroom in neirut, construct a new toilet and bathroom in the south agney of the open area, by leaving a little space from the eastern boundary wall, and increase the floor level of the southwest room and utilise this room as kitchen, after improvement in your financial life, to get more benefit from vaastu.


Q: I have purchased this plot two years back. I wanted to start new construction on this plot, but obstructions have arisen. To get rid of extended portion in west neirut and Vidhi-Shula (approach road) in south agney, puja for vaastu shanti is required, as a vaastu Pandit advised. Another vaastu Pandit advised to sell this plot. I am confused. Please guide me and clear my doubt. Also, will it be wrong to dig the borewell in the north as indicated in the map?

Your vaastu Pandit is misguiding you about the vaastu subject, because the increase in east eshan and north eshan of the plot improves financial movement and prosperity. The vidhi-shula coming in south agney of this plot develops health and wealth. The extended portion in west neirut of the plot is not wrong and it will not create any vaastu dosh. Pooja for vaastu shanti are inter linked with your religious belief, whether to perform or not is depends on you. You will enjoy a happy and prosperous life after you start staying in the newly-constructed house on this plot, if you will follow the vaastu principle while construction.

Neither the plot has any vaastu dosh, nor the vaastu of this plot has any connection with the obstruction in the new construction on this plot. The only reason behind obstruction in construction of the house on this plot is from the vaastu of the house where you are living now. Your new construction will be completed without any impediments, if you rectify the vaastu dosh of your present house before starting the new construction on this plot.

The borewell indicated in the map in north direction of the plot will come in north vayavya direction of the northeast room of the newly-constructed house, which will be wrong. Construct an underground water tank in east eshan and borewell in north eshan by living a diagonal line in the eshan, it will improve your finance and prosperity.


Q: I am living in a rented house and the house owner assured me that this house has been constructed as per vaastu, I am facing heavy loss in business after shifting into this house. I observed that the staircase in eshan and borewell in north vayavya of this house can be a reason for my problems. But our house owner told me that he has installed a Ganesha idol by performing puja, so that the vaastu dosh of the staircase in eshan and borewell in north vayavya will not affect me. I am confused, what to do?

Your observation is perfectly correct that the staircase in eshan and the borewell in north vayavya of the house is the reason behind loss in your business. If the vaastu dosh of the house can be removed by installation of an idol or by performing pooja, you wouldn’t have faced these difficulties. The vaastu dosh of this house is the only reason for your problem. To be safe from this and to live a happy and prosperous life, the only alternative is to shift immediately to another house, which should be as per vaastu norms.


Q: I am about to construct a house, ground floor for parking and two flats in two floors above. The plot size north to south is 38 feet and east to west is 24 feet. Let me know in which part of the house the staircase should be located?
Construct the staircase in southern part of the house, so that the south direction of the house and south-west direction of the plot will get heavier, will give you stability. This is the best place for the staircase.


Q: We have a bathroom constructed in the southwest corner of the bedroom in the southwest. Many say that the bathroom in southwest creates ill effect in business, marriage etc. To nullify the bad effects, we have kept a large mirror in the bathroom. Will it be effective? Is there any alternative?

It is a fact that the neirut direction gets lighter due to toilet/bathroom in southwest corner, which results in financial loss, ill health, delay in marriage of first son etc., but it is impossible to get rid of this vaastu dosh by keeping the mirror in bathroom. Increase the floor level of this toilet/bathroom, compared to floor level of the house and flow the drainage through a pipeline (Without making a drainage manhole on the floor), so that the southwest corner of the house will get heavier and you will get relief from bad effects of this vaastu dosh.


Q: Will I benefit if I dig a new borewell in Northeast, keeping the existing borewell in Southwest of my house? We are facing financial and health problems?
Digging of borewell in East Eshan can be very auspicious while digging one in North Eshan by leaving a diagonal line in Eshan improves one’s finances. By digging borewell in the right place, you will enhance the positive effects of vaastu and this will be beneficial for you and your family. But, the vaastu dosh created by the borewell in the Southwest of your house will effect you as it is. For a permanent solution, it will be best if you fill up the borewell in the Southwest with mud and close it.


Q: I am staying in a rented flat with my family and ever since we moved in, we have been facing several problems. Is this because of the vaastu dosh of the house? Please suggest what we can do?

Since you have started facing problems ever since you shifted to the new house, it must be due to the vaastu dosh. The only option is to overhaul the design of the house as per vaastu norms. However it might not be feasible in a rented flat as the owner might not permit. Also it is not practical to spend so much on re-constructing a rented apartment. So the safest bet is to shift to a new house that is built as per vaastu norms.


Q: I am living in a rented flat on fourth floor, and my office is in one of the rooms of this flat. I have an open plot near this flat. I cannot start construction of a new house in the next two-three years in this plot because of insufficient funds. How do I utilise this plot to increase my source of income? Please advise.

Construct a room in the southwest portion of this plot, by increasing the floor level and utilise this newly constructed room for office purpose. Construct underground water tanks in east eshan and north eshan by leaving a diagonal line, near the boundary wall.
However, your lifestyle will depend on vaastu of the flat you are residing, but if you start sitting continuously in this newly constructed office, the vaastu power will increase your source of income and self-respect, because earth power flows excessively on the ground floor.

Q: A west-facing plan for new house was given in this column previously. I request you to give us the east, north and south-facing plan.
You did not read the matter carefully, because I never gave any plan of a new house facing any direction in this column. It was a reader’s house plan, in which he wanted to know the vaastu dosh of his new house plan, and I had given the information about the vaastu dosh, based on that plan.


Q: Two years ago, I bought a shop while I was living in a rented house. My business was running very well and I had a happy life. Now my business is going down and other problems are coming to the fore. All this began after we shifted to another rented house, some months ago. Please tell me what I should do?
You were living a happy and financially improved life, because of the Vaastu power of your previous house. As you changed your house, your lifestyle has also changed as per the changed Vaastu. The problems that started in your life after you shifted house merely confirms that this is a Vaastu dosh affected house. You would not have faced any problems if you had taken care of Vaastu, while shifting. To turn your problematic lifestyle into a happy and prosperous one, you have only one alternative — that is to shift into another house, which should be as per Vaastu norms.


Q: Ten years ago we constructed a house and gave it out on rent. After one year of this construction, my father suffered a paralytic attack. He died two years later. I want to know the reason behind this. Is it because of the Vaastu dosh of the house in which we never lived?

Now we are planning to renovate the house and shift into it. Please give us your valuable inputs regarding Vaastu.

The Vaastu of the house constructed by you in which you never lived, will never affect you. Only your tenant will be affected by the Vaastu of that house. The incidents happening in your life depend upon the Vaastu of the house in which you are presently living. When you are planning to renovate and shift to the said house, it would be wise to do so under the guidance of an expert Vaastu consultant. By rectifying the Vaastu dosh, if any, you will live a problem-free, happy and prosperous life in the said house.


Q: I want to shift my residence. Please advise me as to which direction is preferable?

This point has no importance in Vaastu. You can shift your house as per the Vaastu norms of your choice, even though the house could be in any direction from your present house.


Q: I meditate sitting, facing the east. Is this correct?

Meditating facing in east or the west is good, but it would be better if you sat in the east eshan or west vayavya.
