end plots are unlucky
facing plots bring in wealth while the master bedroom in
the southwest corner on the ground floor proves lucky
Rameshwar Prasad, Vastu Consultant, Delhi, India.
We are planning to buy an east facing plot of land. This
is at the dead end of a road. The street is blocked from
one side and the other side leads to a road. Can we buy
this land and build a house?
Mahendra Misra, Greater Noida
Roads, streets and lanes are channels of strong energy
currents which can hit a house. A plot at the end of a
road keeps on accumulating highly negative energies
which move down the lane. Buying a house at a dead end
is not recommended.
We want to buy a corner site house which is north
facing. Should we go ahead and buy this house? What is
the direction in which a house should face?
Sushant Taneja, Noida
A north facing plot is good for wealth, if it's a corner
plot. Northeastern corner plot with northeastern main
gate is good. A northwestern corner plot with main gate
in northwest is not good.
I live in a two- storey house. I have rooms in the
northeast corner on both the floors. I have currently
made a puja room on the ground floor and the first floor
room is a guest bedroom. Is this correct? The master
bedroom is in the southwest corner on the ground floor
and my son's bedroom is in the same corner on the first
floor. Is it all right?
Prerna Thakur, Ghaziabad
Yes, a guest room can be above a puja room. You can
place some furniture above the idolsí positions in the
guest room. Thereís also no problem in having the
master bedroom on the ground floor. In your sonís
room, don't position the bed above your bed. Shift it
near another wall. Sleep with your head to the south or
east when lying down.

Arpita Khanna, Noida
In the east northeast, north northeast, west northwest,
and south southwest of the plots male domination is
observed. In the east southeast, south southeast, west
southwest, and north northwest direction of the plots

direction are found to have female domination. In the
buildings with the entrance in the east or the northeast
direction, male domination is observed. In the buildings

northwest entrance don't like to stay at home. These
women are always travelling or work outside their city.
Men living in the houses with west northwest entrance
get outstation postings to foreign countries for work.
Men staying in houses with south southwest entrance have
no interest in work. They become cruel and lazy.
We are going to construct our house. Is there any rule
as regards the measurements of rooms?
Seema Kapur, Faridabad
You should take odd dimensions for rooms. The rooms in
the eastern and northern side should not be bigger than
those on the west and south. These rooms may be smaller
than or equal to the rooms on the west and south. In the
same way, the verandahs on the west and south should be
bigger than those on the east and north or equal to

of the house?
Chandan Gupta, Greater Noida
No, it is very bad. If the toilet is built in the
southwest corner, there will be mental tension and the
eldest male member of the house will fall ill. A
storeroom or the master bedroom can be built in this
area. Shift the toilet in the northwest corner of your
It is said that doorways of a house should be of even
number not ending with a zero. Is it right?
Avinash Pandey, Ghaziabad
Yes, it is often said like that the total number of
openings including doors and windows should be of even
number not ending with zero e. g. 10, 20 etc.
Can the defects of a construction be removed by prayers
Mohini Sharma, Delhi
Mantra, tantra, worship and devices increase the
auspicious energy and benefit the buildings. These can
be applied temporarily. However, this energy does not
last long because it is obstructed by the inauspicious
energy produced due to faulty construction.

We have kept the idols or gods and goddesses in kitchen.
Is it all right? Can you suggest some other place where
I can shift my little puja space?
Anita Gupta, Delhi
Keeping idols in kitchen is not good. Shift the idols to
the northeast corner of your house.
I have my staircase half in the Northeastern direction
and half in the northern side. I have made higher wall
in the west and south directions. Will it help?
Amol Prakash, New Delhi

southwest direction which is good. But stairs of North
Northeast obstruct the entry of beneficial energy for
