What is Vastu Shastra?

The word Vastu Shastra originates from the Sanskrit language, which means the science of architecture. Vastu Shastra is a Hindu traditional system of architecture based on ancient texts.

In those texts, we can read everything about Vastu that tells us the basic principles of architecture and design, layout, measurement, ground preparation, space arrangement, and spatial geometry.

With the help of Vastu, you can create harmony and balance in your house, which will provide you with a 100% flow of positive energy. By building a house as per Vastu Shastra, all the members of the house will be happy, and most importantly, the house will bring success and achievements in each person’s life.

Here is a Vastu chart that you can look at and understand the very basic rules:


North Kuber (God of fortune and wealth) Mercury Trasure, study, courtyard, living room, or balconies
North East Ishaan (Time, birth, death, and resurrection) Jupiter Pooja, study, or living room
East Indra (King of Gods) Sun Dining area or living room

Vastu for the land or plot

Selecting a plot that is compatible with Vastu principles is one of the first things in order to build a house. The Vastu direction, on the other hand, is the most important aspect when it comes to attracting positive energy.

If you are about to select a right location for your house, don’t forget to keep in mind the direction of the house, meaning which direction your house will open—North, South, East, and West. Other than that, you should also consider the site orientation, type of soil, and most importantly, shape and size of the plot.

Vastu for the main door

According to Vastu Shastra, the main door is not just an entry point for your friends and family or casual visitors but a source of positive energy. To achieve everything in life or win in every field, the main door of your house should be towards East, North or North-East direction.

You should construct it in such a way that when you go out, your face should always be towards north, east or north-east direction. Above all, you should ensure that your main door should open in a clockwise direction.

Vastu for water resources

To run your house smoothly, adequate water supply is one of the important factors to consider. And when you build your house with complete Vastu principles, it becomes even more important for you to think about where you are going to store the water – the position of the water tank. According to Vastu, North-East is the most suitable direction for a water tank or any other water resource. As a general rule, the northern direction is considered a good place to store water in any house.

Vastu for bedroom

Sleep is super important. And if your bedroom is not compatible with Vastu Shastra rules, how would you be able to sleep well? So, to get a peaceful and deep sleep, according to Vastu, the bedroom should be located in the south-west corner of the house, and the bed should be placed with the head towards the south or east direction.

You must avoid placing the bed near the door or under a beam· At the same time, never keep idols in the bedroom and never build a temple, because this disrupts the flow of energy. As a general rule, you should always keep your bedroom clutter-free, clean and well-ventilated.

Vastu for living room

The living room is the center of attraction in every house. This is the place where most of your activities take place, such as watching TV with your loved ones, playing with your kids, reading, and much more.

So, in this manner, it becomes very important for you to ensure that the place looks good and is clutter free. Again, the living area should always face east, north or north-east. To give it a balanced look and make functional at the same time, you should place all the heavy furniture items in the living room in the west or south-west direction.

Vastu for kitchen

The kitchen is one of the most important and most used spaces in your home. According to the principles of Vastu Shastra, the place should be in the south-east direction, which is the ideal place for the kitchen.

Also, most of the time, homeowners are concerned about placing a gas stove because it matters a lot. The south-east direction is suitable for placing a gas stove for a happy environment in the house.

Therefore, it becomes more important for any person to ensure that the wall paint, the right and easy-to-access structure, the lighting and the furniture are also as per Vastu.

Vastu for bathroom

The bathroom is the place where you technically remove the waste of your body, so due to this very reason, having the right mindset about placing the bathroom is quite crucial. For a better and more peaceful home environment, the north-west or the west side of your house is the perfect location for the toilet.

And most importantly, while placing the toilet seat or a commode, make sure that you don’t face the east or west sides while using them. According to Vastu, you should not use the dark colors for the bathroom. Instead, you must choose light tones of white, grey, or blue.
