Flower pots should not be kept on
the wall of the building in the north, east or north-east as it
would result in blockage of light and air from these directions.
Water source or tap in the garden should be in the north-east
direction. Levels of the south and west portions of the garden
should be higher than the other portions. The Center of the garden
should not be raised.
*More open space
around the building in the east and the north direction than that
in the west and the south directions is very beneficial.
*In the east or
north-east corner, there should be a Tulsi Vrindavan (A structure
in which the holy basil plant is planted). The height of this
structure should not be more than the plinth level.
wells, fountains, underground water storage tanks, borings, etc.
should be in the east or the north.
plants, lawns etc. should be in the east or the north. The
decorative plants should not be taller than three feet. A small
water fall of three to four feet should be constructed in the east
or the north leaving the north-east or the north-west corner.
*Swings should be
in the east or the north and they should swing towards the east or
* There is no harm
if pet animals and birds nests are in the north-west corner.
*Benches in the
open space in the east and the north direction should be in the
west or the south direction and person should sit facing towards
the east or the north.
Trees bearing fruits should be
planted in the east direction. A rock garden can be in the
south-west of the garden. If there is a swimming pool in the
garden, it should face the north or north-east direction.
* Big trees should
be avoided in the space surrounding the building and inside the
boundary wall. The roots of big trees can damage the base of the
wall compound and the building. The roots of big trees absorb the
invisible power of the sunlight quickly. The good effect of these
powerful rays is not obtained by the building.
* If there are trees
around the building, they should not be tall or thick leaves and
not in the east or the north direction. The auspicious sunrays are
blocked by them. There is no objection to such trees in the West
and the south direction. However, such big trees should not be
only in the west or in the south direction but in the both
direction. The heavy weight of the trees spoil the balance of the
*Useful trees of 3
to 5 feet height can be in the east and the north directions.
There should be no tree of any kind, big, small, useful or
otherwise in the north-east corner.
* No thorny plants
or cactus should be in the four walls of the plot even for
decorative purposes. Because, except Rose, some medicinal plants
like shatavari, all other plants are throwing negative rays out.
Because of this unnecessary tension is created in the house.
Cactus or thorny plants are endowed with demonic and evil
properties. If cactus plants are at all to be kept, for every
cactus plant two basil plants should be there. The basil plants
reduce the evil effect of the cactus plants. But if possible, all
the thorny plants should be uprooted and thrown away without any
thought. No plant brought from a temple, bank of a river, stolen
from any place or given by a person whom you dislike, should be
planted in your plot. Saplings brought from a nursery should be
however beautiful, with flowers should be raised on the compound
wall of the building in the east or the north direction. Creepers
can be planted only in the garden. There is no harm to have a
money plant in the house. However, it should not be planted
outside the house with the support of a tree etc. Only around a
temple, Banyan tree in the east. Audumbar (a type of banyan tree)
on the south side, Pipal in the west can be planted, observing all
the rules regarding the planting of these trees. These tree should
not be planted around our residence or the place of business.
*Any big or small,
proper or improper, tree should not be planted in front of the
main entrance of the building in any direction.
Mango, Pineapple, Lemon Nilgiri, Ashoka or Jamun trees etc. should
not be in the east or the north direction of the building. Paucity
of funds and children is experienced. Only in the south of the
west there is no harm in having Ashoka, Almond, Pineapple, Nilgiri,
Coconut, Neem, Lemon trees etc.
* No big tree should
be in close proximity of the compound wall. In the middle square
of the old building, no big tree is good. Because there is a load
in the place of Brahma and we are not capable to follow the rules
for the fast like the old people. Therefore there should be no
tree at the Bramhasthan. There is no harm if there are trees in
the west and the south direction, outside the compound wall of our
building. Minimum shade of trees should fall on our building
between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.
* Plantation of
saplings and building of garden etc. is profitable during the
auspicious constellations, Anuradha, Vishakha, Revati, Chitra,

south-east, the south-west, the north-east corner in the west in
the north-west or the east. There should be no trees in the north
direction as far as possible.
