Vastu for residential buildings

Vastu for residential  buildings.

The meaning of vastu is dwelling, which is the home for god and humans. Vastu shastra is based on various energies that comes from atmosphere like solar energy from sun, cosmic energy, lunar energy, thermal energy, magnetic energy, light energy, wind energy. These energies can be balanced to enhance peace, prosperity and success. If a house is made according to these principles, the inmates enjoy all the happiness in life. If it is against vastu principals, it will be a place for all sort of problems, worries and no peace.
 i.Master bed room
The Vastu plays a major role in placement and designing of the master bedroom. The way you sleep with your head in different direction and your placement of bed is a major decision which must be taken properly with utmost care. Here are some basic points one must adhere to get peace and prosperity in your bedroom.

  • The master bedroom should always be located in the Southwest part of the house as Southwest represents the element Earth which implies the heaviness, which makes it as the ideal place for the master of the house.
  • This is not at all suitable for children room, guest room, servant room or any other room.
  • A great deal of attention should be paid to bedrooms in a house. One should sleep with head towards South, East or West and never in north.
  • There should not be any beam crossing over the bed. If it exists, proper rectification should be done immediately otherwise the health will be affected.

ii. pooja
Universe is one of the beautiful creations of nature and everything stands alive only in the limelight of truth. Just like every subject of human aspect is governed with rules, regulations & acts, similarly the art of worshipping has got certain key factor principles to attain all its benefits.

While planning a house, due to the space constraints, many people tend to ignore a separate pooja room but we must not sideline the need to make a place for GOD. Thus by creating a room for worshipping, we are creating a room to get charged with positive vibrations every morning and that energy will energize our environment, mind, body and soul. Our work efficiency will increase and so the progress, prosperity and peace.

This room should be designed carefully because when you do meditation, you should gain the positive energies and then you can feel charged. If it is in wrong direction, then no matter how much meditation you do, you will not feel charged. There are certain rules which one must follow before the commencement of designing a pooja room.

  • Silver or gold plates or items can be used for any purpose in pooja room. Usage of iron and stainless steel items in pooja room is strictly prohibited.
The ideal place to locate the bathroom (bathing only) as per Vaastu is on the eastern side. In olden days (even today) in villages, people used to take bath in the early morning. Come out of the bathroom, see and worship the "Rising Sun" chanting mantras (hymns).

sa-vaastuIn the present time, businesses are developing very fast and small towns are
Selection of the plot
One of the major obstacles that come in one's way is the non-availability of sufficient private land either in big cities or small towns. Several things need careful consideration while going for construction of a building. For any building, the site (Kshetra) is the basic requirement and utmost care must be taken in its selection.

The most important of all these is selecting the right plot or the site. Vastu Shastra, therefore, has given the utmost importance to selection of a right plot and has set down several significant principles. There are some important factors that you should always consider while looking for a plot. Whenever possible one should always try to follow the Vastu principles as violation of these principles can destroy the happiness of one's life.There are some important factors that you should always consider while selecting the plot. 

i)Types of soil 
iii)Topography and surroundings 
iv)Selection of the plot

i)Types of soil 

Earth is classified according to its color like brick red, dark brown, black, yellow or mixed, according to its smell, texture and taste. Black and clayey soil is not good for construction.

  • The soil white in color, having lotus smell, sweet taste and which contains greenery is considered very good.
  • The soil red in color, smelling blood and astringent in taste is good but needs some attention.
  • The soil yellow/pale green in color, grainish smell and sour taste is average and needs a lot of rectification before commencement of work.
  • The soil black in color, having pungent small and bitter taste should be avoided as it is not auspicious for construction of the houses.
While designing the foundation, the load bearing capacity of the soil should be checked. The real analysis of soil should be done which determines the land selection for the plot and for the foundation of the building.


The location of the plot is very important as the surroundings affects us directly and indirectly. You must take care of the following things:
  • One should not buy the land from people suffering from prolonged sickness or who have become insolvent, distressed or unfortunate people as the atmosphere of the particular space depends on the people living there.
  • The soil of the land should not contain ant-hills, bones, skeletons.
  • Old houses which are damaged due to fire, lighting, rain and storm etc., are not good.
  • You should not buy the land which is sandwiched between two huge buildings.
  • The plot at the T- junction should be avoided.

iii)Topography and surroundings

There are several factors which make a plot useable or non useable. The four directions, the shape, the existence of highways, cremation places, rivers, wells, places of worships, they all influence the VASTU of the place.
  • There should not be any cemetery graveyard, tomb adjacent to the plot or in front or the back. If this is the condition, the people residing in that house will live in fear and will never have the peace of mind.
  • A temple, church, mosque also should not be in front of any house otherwise the inmates will always be sick and mentally upset.
  • Falling of shadows of the temples and trees nearby on the main building brings undesirable problems.

iv)Selection of the plot

Facing of the plots are considered important but there is a wrong notion that North and East facing plots are better than South and West facing plots. This is not true, all the directions are equally important; it is up to us how much we follow the rules.
  • The plot should be either square or rectangle in shape.
  • Irregular shapes should be avoided or should be cured before construction.
  • The site should be level or sloping towards North or east or North-East.
We will provide you with the assistance in selection of the best suitable plot. We follow the following steps:
  • Check and determine the directions of the site.
  • Check the soil of the site as it plays a major role in forming the vibrations of that particular site.
  • Try to get a personal feel and touch of the property to observe positive or negative vibrations at the site.
  • Prepare a Vastu analysis chart indicating important aspects and grading of the plot and suggestions

Construction detail

The second stage after buying a land is to start construction. Now even if you have chosen a bad land you can correct it by making proper construction and using Eco friendly material according to vastu. If you have purchased a good land, it can be unsuspicious if you don't make the construction according to the rules of vastu. If you choose the wrong materials in wrong place, they will start giving problem later. Imagine after whole construction you come to know that the material is the cause of worries. What will you do? You cannot demolish the whole building , so its always better to have precautions rather than to go for cures.

There are some important factors that you should always consider while designing the house.

i)Open space around the building
ii)The proportion
iii)The Levels
v)The Height
vi)Terrace / Porch / Portico / Balcony
vii)Compound wall
viii)Garage / Out house
ix)Guard's room
x)Overhead tanks
xi)Underground reservoir
xii)Well / Bore - Well / Tube - Well
Xiii)Septic tank
i)Open space around the building

We have to carefully examine the space given to us around the building.
  • Leave more space in the North and East as compared to South and West.
  • The major construction should never be on the Northern and eastern wall.
  • Even for the South/West facing plots, the open area in South & West should not be more than North & East.
ii)The proportion

The ratio between the length and breadth of the building should normally be 1:1 or 1:1.5 or maximum up to 1:2, it should never exceed this limit in any circumstance, otherwise it will become a 'long bar' shaped plot and is not at all auspicious for anyone.

iii)The Levels

At any level, whether Ground level or First level, the West, South, Southwest sides should be more elevated than the North, Northeast and East sides. Basically the flow of water should always be from the South to North or West to East as it create a lot of positive energies.


The roofing slope should always be towards East and North so that the water always flows towards the North and East. If the roof is designed slanted, the slopes should be in north and east sides. Slanting towards South or West should be avoided.

v)The Height

The height is related to weight. The height either be kept equal everywhere in the building or it will be preferred to keep the South and West higher than the North and East as the South, West sides will automatically gets heavier and this is very auspicious. But never keep the North and east sides at more heights than the South, West.

vi)Terrace / Porch / Portico / Balcony

All these should always be located in the North, East or Northeast sides of the building to bring the health, wealth and happiness. The balconies should always face the North, East or Northeast.

vii)Compound wall

The compound is the wall that covers the boundary of the house. The compound wall either should be of same height and thickness in all the four sides or it will be best if it is thicker and taller in Southern and Western sides as compared to the Northern and Eastern sides. This is preferred as the thick wall of the South and West sides will prevent the afternoon sun and the setting rays of the sun, which are harmful for the humans. Light walls in North and East sides will allow the beneficial morning rays to come and penetrate in the house; they are full of Vitamin D and are the only source of obtaining it.

viii)Garage / Out house

The best place to construct them is the Northwest and Southeast corner and care should be taken not to block or cut the corners at the Southeast or Northwest and the quarter walls should not touch the wall at the Ea
st or North side.

ix)Guard's room

A concrete or wooden shelter is made either in Southwest or Southeast and the shelter should be facing the East or North but it is important to ensure that the watchman is able to see every movement.

x)Overhead tanks

These tanks should be placed in South/West/Southwest as the tank becomes very heavy.

xi)Underground reservoir

It should always be made in the North/East/Northeast.

xii)Well / Bore - Well / Tube - Well

These should be placed in Northeast or eastern sides preferably in between the mid North and Northeast as it bring all round prosperity and new opportunities for growth. 
Xiii)Septic tank
These should be placed in Northwest or South west sides preferably in between the mid west and south . Strictly not place at Northeast and South West.

Then you must go for a Vastu check. i. The OfficesOur work space, where we spend at least half our walking time, six days a week, is as important a part of our lives as our homes. These also have an influence on our productivity, mental well-being and general health.

Whatever be the industry, the principles of the Vaastu broadly remains the same and should be kept in the mind while preparing the building, constructing the building, installing the machinery, turning out the products and dispatching them to the clients.
