  Vaastu for Place/City
Home is a place where one can rest and rejoice while passing through the chaos of life. If one wants to live happily in a house, one must follow the rule called Gramarvan, which means selection of the city town or village. The following are some of the systems dealt in our ancient texts.

PLACES OF RESIDENCE
If one wants to construct a house and live in it happily for years, the first norm of vastu is Gramarvan which means a choice of the city town or village. The following are some of the methods dealt in our ancient texts of vastu, concerning Gramarvan.

GRAMARAVAN: the syllables in Sanskrit alphabet are divided into 8 Vargas. They are Avarga, Kavarga, chavarga, Tavarga, Thavarga, pavarga, Yavarga, and Savarga.

Method 1: Kalamrita
Keep the number counted from the first syllable of person's name, on the left of the number counted from to the first syllable of the village name. Divide the entire number counted by 8. The number Dhana. Now keep the number counted from to the first syllable of the person's name on the right of the number counted from to the first syllable of the village - name. Divide the entire number by 8. The reminder is rina. If dhana is greater than rina, the village (town/city) favors him with happiness in prosperity if he builds a house and lives in it. Dhana is less than rina, it doesn't favor the person. If dhana and rina are equal, it is mediocre.

Example: - the name of the person is Raman. The name of the town is Bangalore. The first syllable of Rama is Ra. This is the 39th syllable counted from the first syllable of Bangalore is. This is the 35th, syllable counted from placing 39 on the left of 35, we get the number k3955. This when divided by 8, gives the remainder 7. This is dhana. Now keeping 39 on the right of 35, we get the number 3539. This when divided by the 8, we get remainder 3. So dhana is greater than rina.

Method 2: MUHURTA CHINTAMANI
Among the 8 vargas of alphabet, mentioned previously find out the varga numbers that the first syllable of person's name and the first syllable of village - name belong to. Keep the person's varga number on the left of the village varga number. Divide the entire number by 8. The reminder is dhana. Now keep the person's varga number on the right of the village varga number. Divide the entire number by 8. The remainder is rina. Dhana should be greater than rina.

Example: - the name of the person is Raman. The name of the city is Bangalore. The first syllable of Raman is 'Ra' which belongs to varga 7. The first syllable of Bangalore is (ba) which belongs to Varga 6. Keeping 7 on the left of 6. We get the number 76. This when divided by 8, gives the remainder 4. This is dhana. Keeping 7 on the of 6, we get the number 67. This when divided by 8 gives the remainder 4. This is Rina since Rina is less than Dhana, Bangalore favors Raman.

Method 3: MUHURTA CHINTAMANI
Double the Varga number of the person and add to it, the Varga number of the village. Now divide the sum by 8. The remainder is Namakakaini. Double the Varga number of the village and add to it the Varga number of the person. Now divide the sum by 8. The remainder is Gramakakini. The Namakakaini is Dhana, while Gramakakini is Rina. The Namakakaini should be greater than Gramakakini.

Example: - the name of the person is Raman. The name of the city is Bangalore. The Varga number of 'Ra' is 7. When double it becomes 14. Add the Varga number 6 of 'ba', now we get 14+6=20. This when divided by 8, gives the number 4.  This is Namakakanini or Dhana. Now double the Varga number 6 of'ba' a dad to it the Varga number 7. So we get 19. This when divided by 8 gives the remainder 3. So, Namkakini is greater than Grmakakini. So Bangalore suits Raman.

Method 4: VASTU PRADEEPA
Find the varga lords of the person and the village. If the two lords are the same or if the two lords are mutual friends, the village favors the person, if the two lords are inimical to each, the village falls in disfavor. If

VARGAS                                                                    LORDS
Avarga                                                                         sun
Kavarga                                                                       Moon  
Chavarga                                                                      Mars
Tavarga                                                                        Venus
Thanvarga                                                                    Mercury          
Pavarga                                                                        Jupiter
Yavarga                                                                       Saturn
(8 syllables)

Top

The two lords are neutral to each; it is Medicare, neither prosperous nor calamitous.

Example: - Raman is the name of the person. 'Ra' belongs to Yavarga whose lord is Saturn. Bangalore is the name of the city 'ba' belongs to Pavarga whose lord is Jupiter. Since the two lords are neutral, Bangalore is mediocre to Raman.

Method 5: MUHURTA CHINTAMANI
The eagle, cat, lion, dog, snake, rat and rabbit are symbolic respectively of the eight Vargas from Avarga to Savarga. Each is inimical to its 5th Varga. So, one should not choose a village from his own Varga. The eight Vargas from Avarga to Savarga respectively represent the eight directions from the East to North- East. So, one should choose the village of the 5th direction from his own direction. See the table below:

Savarga RabbitAvarga, EagleKavarga, CatYavarga, ElephantVarga, ChartChavarga LionPavarga, RatThavarga, SnakeTavarga God.

Method 6: VASTU PRADEEPA
From the person's name Rasi, the village belonging to the 2nd , 5th 9th, 10th or 11th name rasi is good to him to build a house and live in that village. The village belonging to two 1st, 3rd, 4th or 7th name rasi is mediocre. The village belonging to 6th, 8th or 12th name rasi is evil.

Example: - the Nama rasi of Raman is Thula. The Nama Rasi of Bangalore is Dhanu. Since Dhanus is the 3rd from Thula, it is mediocre.

Method 7: MUHURTA RATNAKARA
Multiply the number of syllables in the name of the village with 4 and add the number of syllables in the name of the person. Divide the sum by 7. The remainders 1, 2,4,5,6 are good. 3 and 7 are evil.
Example: - Raman contains 2 syllabuses. Bangalore contains 4 syllables therefore 4*4+2 =18. This when divided by 7, gives the remainder 4. So. Bangalore is good for Raman.

Method 8: VASTURATNAVALI
Count from the name asterism of the village to the name asterism of the person. The results are interpreted according as the number falls in the asterism connected with the as shown below:

Head                - 5 - gain
Face                 - 3 - loss of money
Belly                 - 5 - money
Foot                 - 6 - harm to woman
Back                - 1- danger to life
Navel               - 4 - wealth
Secret organ     - 1 - money
Right hand        - 1- grief
Left hand          - 1 - difference
Example: the name of the person is Raman. His name star is chitta. The name of the city is Bangalore. So, the name asterism of Bangalore is uttarashada. Counting from uttarashada to chitta, we get the number 24, this falls in navel, which indicates wealth.

See that the majority of the eight methods mentioned above, favor the village or city where in you intend to build a house and live in. never build a house in a village whose name asterism lies in the sign transited by Saturn, during Saturn's transit period.

DIGARVANA: having selected a favorable village, for building a house, one has to decide the factorable direction reckoned from the centre of the village. Persons with Nama rasis of vrishabha, simha, makara and mithuna should not construct houses in the centre of the village. Those with Nama rasi of vrischika should not construct houses in the east. Those with Nama rasi meena should not construct houses in south-east. Those with Nama rasi of kanya should not construct house in south. Those with Nama rasi of kataka should not construct houses in south-west. Those with Nama rasi of dhanus should not construct houses in south. Those with name rasi of thula should not build houses in north-west. Those with Nama rasi of kumbha should not construct houses in north. Those with Nama rasi of kumbha should not construct houses in north-east. And one should not build a house in the village in the direction indicated by the 5th varga of his own varga.

Example: - arun is the name of the person. The name asterism of arun is krittika - 1, because the first syllable belongs to the 1st pada of krittika. Krittika - 1 lies in mesha. So the Nama rasi of arun is mesha. So arun should not construct a house and live in north reckoned from the centre of the village or town city. Arun's varga is avarga in mesha. The 5th from mesha is simha representing south. So, he could not build a house in the south reckoned from the centre of the village chosen by him.

DIG DASA: VASTU PRADEEPA
Note the constants of Vargas & directions, mentioned below:

Avarga, East                           = 8
Kavarga, south - East             = 5
Chavarga, south - west            = 6
Tavarga, south - west              = 4
Thavarga, west                        = 7
Pavarga, north - West               = 1
Yavarga, north                          = 3
Savarga, north - east                 = 2

Add the constants of the village varga. Person's varga and direction. Divide the sum by 9. The remainders from 1 to 9 respectively indicated the planetary dasas of the sun (6), moon (10), mars (7), rahu (18), Jupiter (16), Saturn (19), mercury (17), ketu (7), and Venus (20). These planetary dasas begin from the time of house constructions. The maximum limit of life span of a house attained in varga calculation. The results of planetary dasas are follows:

Sun dasa          (6 y)                 = fickle- mindedness and tensions.
Moon dasa       (10 y)               = gain of money
Mars dasa        (7 y)                 = fear and distress
Rahu dasa        (18 y)               = fevers
Jupiter dasa      (16 y)               = happiness, prosperity
Saturn dasa      (19 y)               = disease
Mercury dasa   (17 y)               = happiness
Katu dasa         (7 y)                 = troubles
Venus dasa       (20 y)               = happiness, prosperity

Example: - Rama builds a house in hanamkanda in north- east from the centre of hanamkanda. "ra" belongs to yavarga of constants 3. "ha" belongs to savarga of constant 2. The constant of north- east is 2.
Therefore, 3 +2 +2 =7. This is not divisible by 9 and hence 7 is the remainder. So, mercury dasa of 17 years begins from the time of house- construction. There is another school of thought concerning dig dasa which is as follows:-

VASTU RAJA VALLABHA
Add the varga numbers of the person, village and the direction, divide the sum by 9. The remainders 1 to 9 respectively show the planetary dasas from the sun to Venus. The dasas of benefic planets are good while dasas of malefic planets are evil.

Example: - varga number of Rama is 7. Since "ra" belongs to yavarga whose number is 7. Varga number of hanamkonda is 8 since 'ha' belongs to savarga whose number is 8. Varga number of north-east is 8. Therefore, 7 +8 +8 = 23. 23 when divided by 9, gives the remainder 5. So the planetary dasa of Jupiter of 16 years begins.

SITE EXAMINATION:
The site before constructing a house should be examined to see if it favors the person with happiness and prosperity.

Test the colors, smell, taste, touch and sound of the soil in the site. The plot is good if the colour of the soil is white or brick -red. The soil should have fragrance of flowers or of honey. It should not have bad odour of meat or liquor etc. if the soil tastes sweet, the plot is good. If it tastes bitter or saline, it is bad reject the plot if you hear from the ground any fierce sounds like those of fox, dog, ass, water fall or broken pots. The plot is good if you hear melodious sounds like those of horse, elephant, bamboo, ocean, kettle-drum or lute. If the ground in the plot is too rough for one to stand or if the clay is too hot or too cold, the plot should be rejected.

JUDGING THE PLOT
TEST 1: dig s pit of s cubit's depth and fill it again with clay. If the clay falls short of filling the pit, the pit is no good for house constructing. If the clay exactly suffices to fill up, it is mediocre. If some of the clay remains left out, the plot is good.

TEST 2: fill the pit with water. If water remains the next day, the plot augurs prosperity. If only the mud remains, it forebodes poverty. If dust remains, it is an indication of death.

TEST 3: fill the pit with water. The plot is good if the water remains in half of if it by the time a person walks hundred feet and returns. If the water-level is less than a half and more than a quarter it is bad. The next test is to see if the site is alive or dead. A dead site should be rejected fro house construction.

Top

Test 1: add the varga numbers of the person, village and direction. Divide the sum by 3. if the remainder is 1, it is alive and if the remainder is 2, it is dead. If the remainder is 1, it is alive and if the remainder is 2, it is dead. If the remainder is 3 it is neither alive nor deed.

Example: varga number of Rama is 7 (Ya varga)
                Varga number of hanamkonda is 8 (SA varga)
                Varga number of north- east is 8
                7 + 8 + 8 = 23. This when divided by 3 gives the remainder as 2 which show the site is dead.

TEST 2: add the constants of the village varga, person's varga and direction. Divide the sum by 3. If the remainder is 1, it is jagati which is good. If the remainder is 2, it is 2; it is rakshasi which is bad.
The constants of Vargas and directions are as follows:

Avarga - East = 8; Kavarga, South - East = 5;
Chavarga - South = 6; Tavarga, South - West = 4;
Thavarga, west = 7; Pavarga, North - West = 1;
Yavarga, North = 3; and Savarga; North - East = 2.
Example: the varga constant of Rama is 3. The varga constant of Hanamkonda is 2.

The constant of North - East is 2. Therefore 3 +2 +2 = 7. This, when divided by 3, gives the remainder 1 which is jagati.
TEST 3: add the constants of the Vargas of village, person and direction. Add 9 to the sum and multiply the sum with 7 and divide it by 4. If the remainder is 1, happiness if assured. If the remainder is 2 it is sleepy which is mediocre. If the remainder is 3, it is deed. If the remainder is 4, it is void.

Example: varga constant of Rama is 3; varga constant of Hanamkonda is 2. Constant of North- East is 2.
Therefore, 3 +2 + 2 =7
7 + 9 =16; 16*7
                                    R = 4
Therefore it is void.
Test 4: if the seeds sown in the site sprout in 3 days, it is good for house construction. If they sprout in 7 days, it is bad. The seeds may be of paddy, wheat, mustard, seas mum, barley etc.

SALYAS IN THE SITE
Salyas may be bones, ash, husk, or leather pieces. They may be pieces of wood, coal, or iron etc. Such extraneous and evil-portent objects in the site should be removed by digging the ground before you build a house. Salyas found beneath 12 inches depth in the ground bear no evil effect.

The syllables Aa, Ka, Cha, Ta, Tha, Pa, Ya, and Sa respectively represent the 8 directions from the east to north-East. Ha, Pa, Ya represent the centre of the site. From the first syllable of a word uttered by the querent you can know in which direction the salyas lie in the site. If the first syllable of the querent is other than the above mentioned syllables, it means the absence of Salyas in the site. See the figure:

Salyas in Houses
If deaths occur once in every three years in any house, it means human bones may lie in the east. Frequent troubles from Government like suspension, dismissal from services, indicate the salyas of donkey in the south-East. If the head of the family suffers from a chronic disease human salyas lie in the south. If infant mortality is frequent, canine bones lie in the south- west. If any member of the family is a vagabond because of lunacy, bones of an infant child lie in the west. If the head of the family is troubled with enemies or litigation etc., for more than twelve years, husk and pieces of coal lie in the north-west. If the head of the family, through rich, loses his wealth gradually in twelve years, human bones lie in the north. Loss of cattle indicates human bones in the north-East. If the family is extinct, bone ash and pieces of coal lie in the middle of the site. A site mostly cracked or a site with salyas, anthills or hillocks thrown up by white ants, moles etc., should be rejected for house construction. At the time of ploughing the land for cleaning the site, the sight of stones, gold, bricks etc., augurs happiness and prosperity. The sight of husk, bones, eggs, snake, tatters etc. may portend death. The sight of cotton portends disease. The sight of cowries forebodes quarrels and distress. The sight of pieces of fuel-wood presages fire-accident. Such extraneous and evil salyas should be removed and the site should be covered with fresh bricked or white clay.
