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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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 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
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
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

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
The neirut direction gets lighter due to the
location of the toilet and bathroom. The gas

also lead to problems. The following changes are
required to get rid from the above-cited vaastu
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
Meditating facing in east or the west is good,
but it would be better if you sat in the east
eshan or west vayavya.
