Vaastu principles easy to follow or complicated?
Shilpi Gulati, Noida
A. Vaastu principles are planning-oriented and related
to placement. Vaastu is a definite science based on
well-established principles. It, therefore, follows that
once the basic principles are well understood Vaastu is
as easy as any other subject of human knowledge. Even if
it is complicated the advantages are numerous.
Q. I'm the eldest son in the family. My house is under
reconstruction. Where should my bedroom be located?
Which is the best direction which will bring me
happiness and prosperity?
Rohit Malik, Gurgaon
A. The room where your parents live should be located in
the southwest and your room can be in the south or west
Q. We are living in a 10-year-old house. Can we make
some changes in the house without any major alterations?
Inakshi Gaitonde, Delhi
A. The main solution is careful inspection of the house
with respect to Vaastu principles. Make the alterations
only if necessary. Sometimes a simple change or main
entry change can help. For example: It could be that you
sleep in the northwest area but also have a bedroom in
southwest you could use, or, you might have the choice
to use a different entry that is better located. All
this must be carefully inspected by an expert.
Q. We have decided to build a house. Our plot is just
opposite to a church. Between the plot and church there
is a road. This road is going towards the west. Please
just analyse and tell me if its all right for us to
build a house there.
A. If the church or church gate is not directly facing
the house it will be ok. The shadow of a church should
not fall on your house or main gate.
Q. My friends house faces east and after the main
gate he has two doors to enter the house. He has put up
an idol of lord Ganesha on one of the doors and on the
other he has wall painting also of Ganesha. Is there
any Vaastu dosha in keeping lord Ganeshas idol/
paintings near the the entrance doors?
A. At the main entrance door your friend should place
ganesha back to back i.e. on both sides of door. Lord
Ganesha or swastika symbols are considered very
auspicious on the main door.
Q We are considering buying a house that has a septic
tank in the north and a well in the east. The house has
a swimming pool in the south. Also the southern side is
higher than northern side. Will it be all right to buy
Pramit Patel, Noida
A. Septic tank in the north is not good. It can be
shifted to the northwestern side. The well can be in the
east but swimming pool on the south should not be there.
The slope seems fine.
Q. I bought a 200 square yard plot which is west facing.
Please tell me where should we construct the following
rooms, main bedroom, kitchen, two more bedrooms, dining
hall, drawing room and a separate puja room.
Makhija, Greater Noida
The main bedroom should be in
southwest, the kitchen is ideal in the southeast, the
other bedrooms can be made in the southern, western,
northwestern or northern side. Its good to have the
dining room either in the west or south, the drawing
room can be in the north or northwest and make your
pooja room in the northeastern side for best results.
Q. What are the affects of having a pillar in the centre
of the flat? Can any remedial measures be taken to avoid
Kushal Nandi, Delhi
A. If it is in the exact centre, it puts pressure on the
house like someone putting pressure on your navel.
This could create health problems and tense atmosphere
in the house. You can hang a five rod metallic wind
chime in central area and put water and salt solution in
a nonmetallic pot near the central pillar to keep the
negative vibes at bay.
Q. I have purchased a plot. The southwest side of this
plot is in the shape of angle more than ninety degrees.
As we know that if southwest corner is extended like
kona then this is not good. As a remedy what can we do?
Kindly tell us.
Mahendra Rikhi, Gurgaon
A. Create an ideal compound within the boundaries of
your land and exclude the odd bits with the new regular
shaped compound wall. negative vibes at bay.
Q. We are planning to built a garage in the southeast
corner of our property. It will open on the southern
side and the entry to the garage from the house will be
from the northwest. Is it OK? Please advise.
Choudhuri , Ghaziabad
A. The garage can be in the
southeast area but dont cover that corner completely.
Leave a gap in corner, put a solid gate instead of grill
gate in the southern side. Entrance from inside is all
Q. Is there any way in which I can get my son, who with
his new job has moved to a different place, to come back
and live with us?
A. He's an adult. It's time for him to go out on his
own, perhaps. If he was sleeping in the northwest part
of your house, it may have caused him to move out.
Shifting his bedroom to the southern or western side can
