- Plot facing East is good for scholars, philosophers, priests, professors, teachers etc. - Plot facing North is good for those in power, administration and those who work for government. - Plot facing South is good for business class and for those who work in business organisation. - Plot facing West is for those who provide supporting services to the society.
Environment or Surrounding of Plot According to Vastu
This is most important. If the surroundings are not good, we suffer in many ways. - Plots which are fertile with plants and greeneries are very good. - A river or big canal nearby and if it is in North side and water flows from West to East, it is good. - Similarly if it is on East side of the plot with water flowing from South to North, that is also good. - But plots with rivers or canal flowing on West or South side of the plot should be avoided. - Hills, hillocks, mounds of Earth, big boulders etc on the Southern, South West and Western sides of the plot is good : in other sides, it will mar the progress. - There should be no graveyard, cemetery or tomb adjacent to the plot or in front or back. - Location of temples near the plot also affect the inmates. Temple on the right side of a plot cause material loss, on the left, grief and sorrow, in front, obstruction to progress and in the 100 feet apart, those disastrous result are avoided. - Similarly plot very near to Cinema-theaters, schools and colleges are to be avoided.
From Whom Not to Buy a Plot
According to Vastu Shastra, a plot or site of land should not be purchased :
- From those who became insolvent - From person suffering from leprosy - From lunatics - From people who have left the country, etc.
Similarly, land donated to temple, allotted to watchman of village or colony, land in possession of charitable trusts, land without any title deed should not be purchased. Land containing boulders, ant hills, worm hills, bones and skeleton etc, should not be acquired.
Obstruction in Front of Main Gate of Plot
If there are obstructions of the under noted types before main gate of the plot, following problems will arise as per BRAHUSANHITHA.
- Big Tree-obstruction to the progress of children, - Gutter or Ditch-grief, - Open well- mental problem, - Corner of another building-mental unrest, - Water drain-draining of income by unwanted expenses, - Straight street-affecting longevity of inmates, - Dilapidated house or walls-affecting prosperity, - Staircase railings-sadness, - Pillars; Electric and telephone post-affecting females.
According to VASTURAJ and BRAHUSANHITA these are called VEDH DOSHA. But in between the plot and obstacles if there is a public road, these deficiencies are nullified.
Similarly, if the distance between the obstacles and the house is two times the height of the house, these deficiencies will have no effect. For example, if the height of the house is 11 feet and if the obstructions are more than 22 feet away, Vedh Dosha vanishes.
Surroundings of Neighbors
The surroundings of our neighboring houses on all sides also affect us.
• Rain water falling from the roofs of neighbors should not flow into our plot particularly from North or East direction. • The affluent of neighbor should not flow into our plot. • In the North East side of the plot high-rise or tall buildings should not be there because such high rise buildings give rise to mental unrest. But if they are in South, South West or Western sides that will be auspicious to the buyer of the new plot or house. • In between two neighboring big plots, a smaller plot should not be purchased. Similarly between two tall buildings, a small house should not be bought. This will make the buyer poorer day by day.
