Colours play a very vital role in the well being of the membrs or the house. Certan specific colours are ascertained for perticular directions. They are as give hereunder:

During Day Time During Night Time

SW Violet NW

S Deep Blue N

SE Light Blue NE

E Light Green E

NE Golden Yellow SE

N Orange S

NW Deep Red SW

W Deep Green W

All these colours should be in these particular direction. The good rays coming from a particular direction gets boosted when the specified colours are present in those directions. Even a small patch ( say one inch by one inch) is enough to get the beneficial affects from the colours.

The door of the stairs should be towards East or South only. The top door should be a little smaller than the door in the lower floors.

The doors and windows should be in equal height,and also if possible of the same size. The doors and windows should be twice the size of its width.

The doors and windows should be fixed with threshholds (choukhat) as was done earlier, on al the four sides.

There should always be odd numbers of doors and windows i,e,1,3,5,7,9, etc. The doors and windows should always have two leaves, and never with one leaf.

The doors and windows should always open inwards, into the room or the building, and never outside. The is exception to this in case of kitchen and toilets.

A particular case for the above is cited here. A rented house had its main door opening inwards into the angan or the central courtyard. All the other doors of the rooms inside the house also opened into the courtyard. The problem of the house was that the tenants would leave the house very soon, and most of the time the house was vacant.

When the door of the rooms was made to open inside the rooms, the problem of the house concerned disappeared.

This can be explained cinsidering that the energy coming from outside the house was reaching upto the central courtyard, and could not go any further. This is because the doors of the rooms also opened into the courtyard. But when the doors were made to open into the rooms, there was proper circulation of the energy, reaching each and every corner of the house.

There should be more doors and windows in the East and North sides and should be kept open to the maximum possible time. Mosiqito nets may be provied if there is problems of insects.

There should not be a second door opposite the entrance door of the house, i,e, the main door is in the East, then there should not be a second door in the West . Similarly, if there is a door in the North, there should not be a second door in the South.

When the doors of the house is not as per VAASTU, and there is no scope for betterment also, then with the help of mirrors the benefits of VAASTU may be received.

The doors shouldnot be obstructed. There are different types of obstructions (dwar vedha). Some of then is given herender: 

Roads : Immense loss to owner.

Trees : Not good for children in the house.

Pillar : Bad for female members, more expenses.

Water puddle : Sadness and loss of wealth.

Flowing water : Unwanted expenditure.

Well,borewell : Ill health, Epilepsy (Mirgi)

Temple : Great Loss.

However, if the dwar vedha is at a distance double the height of the building, or across the road, then the vedha is not effective.

There who keep their vehicle for status symbol and use it rarely than they should, prefer South-West, but for all other regular use South-East location is the most suitable place for free moving as more open space is generally kept in the East direction.

The earth emits positive and negatives energies during the 24 hours cycle of day/night. A chart is given to describe the energies :


The positive energy of the earth is at its peak one hour before sunrise and one hour after sunset. Sunrise and sunset time varies daily through out the year. However, from two a.m.till five a.m. the positive energy are also at its peak. This time is also called brahma muhurat. 

Similarly there are negative energy also flowing during a partic ular time of the day. Out of these negative energies, the following chart gives the worst period, known as Rahukalam:

Mon 730 am to 900 am

Tue 300 pm to 430 pm

Thurs 130 pm to 300 pm

Fri 1030 am to 1200 pm

Sat 900 am to 1030 pm

Sun 430 pm to 600 pm

1. The land on which we construct our building for different purposes should always be either square, rectangular or North-East extended in size. It would be ideal if it faces to the North or East but not to any angles. so irrespective of the size of the plot we have to revise it in to rectangular or square size and if necessary a little portion of the plot may be sacrificed for other purposes.

2. At the time of construction of the houses or anything we should be certain of one thing that is South-West corner is always higher than North-East corner, and again southern side higher than the Northern and Western side is higher than the eastern.

3. the plot surrounded by roads from all the four sides is the most ideal one but it is not always possible to find such suitable plot. The plot having road on the North or the East side or both sides is also equally good but when the plot does not fulfill any of these principles we should keep space on all the sides as for passages.

4. The Vaastu shastra encourage to see that the South-West corner must be 90 degree the North-East less than 90 degree and North-West and South-East are more than 90 degree.

5. Before purchasing the land we should verify the suitability of the plot by simple test , we should dig up a ditch one foot length and one foot width and three feet depth then we have to fill it with water at night the next morning if there is a little water still left in the ditch then it is considered to be an ideal plot for construction of any thing.

Mirrors also play a vital role in Vastu. The basic reason behind the use of mirrors is to reflect the bad rays coming from a particular direction. Also, it gives a view that the person is coming from the opposite direction.

To illustrate, suppose a room has the entrance door in the NW area. To make the room better, a mirror should be fixed just opposite the door, on the E wall. This willreflect the rays coming from the NW area. It also gives a feling that the person entering the room is doing so from the NE area.

The Mirrors should be fixed in the N and E walls only. It should never be fixed in the S and W walls, Wardrobes having mirrors deny the rules of Vastu. Hence all Almirahs and Wardrobes ahould be devoid of mirrors.One should be very cautious while using mirrors in a cross property.
