We all dream of a house of our own. 

Real estate agents may direct us to the empty location, but there’s more than what goes into turning a “house” into a “home”.  For a house to become a home, it needs to radiate the right kind of energy.

Vastu is an ancient architectural science that helps us hone positive energy. The fundamentals of Vastu-science circle around the various sources of energies, solar and celestial included. 

Balancing these energies is the key to bringing in success and peace to you and your home. These energies will directly affect the betterment of your loved ones, by adding health, happiness, and prosperity to their lives. 

Vastu Shastra explains that all things in the universe have a level of energy. This applies to the buildings that people build their homes in. Every building or land has a vibration of energy associated with it. 

The universe is built of positive and negative energy. Vastu aims at eliminating the negative energy and enhancing the positive energy in your house.

As per Vastu, the universe is made of 5 elements namely Earth, Air, Space, Fire, and Water. It says that the balance of these elements is very important for attracting positivity at home. Every element has a dominant direction.

1. Every home should have a separate section for offering prayer. The best direction to do so is northeast to ensure the best Vastu for the house. According to Vastu it is the zone of Lord Shiva and represents divinity.

2. The best Vastu-favoured corner to set up any kitchen is the South-West corner. Or else, the North-West corner works just as fine.
3. Bedroom is the place where you sleep, get rest, and acquire new energy to carry out tasks for the next day. It is crucial that you get peace and tranquillity in your bedroom.
To achieve that, make sure the bedroom is in the southwest zone. You can then go in the west, north, and south directions.
4. Make sure the bathroom is placed in the zones of the southwest (SSW), west of northwest (WNW), and east of southeast (ESE). These directions ensure the best Vastu for home.
5. The staircase placement becomes crucial to connect to the upper floors or roof of the house. For a vastu-compliant home make sure, the staircase is placed in the southwest direction.

Vastu: Don’ts, to keep in mind while purchasing a new home

  • Vastu experts say that the rooms of a house should have definite lines. Even though they look stylish, round or circular rooms are not compliant with Vastu guidelines 
  • Make sure the front door does not face south or south-west because doing so brings illness and a decline in wealth.
