What is Vastu Shastra?
Vastu shastra is a traditional Hindu system of architecture, which literally translates to science of architecture.
There are texts found on the Indian subcontinent that describe principles of design, layout, measurement, ground preparation, space arrangement & spatial geometry.
Vastu shastras incorporate traditional Hindu & in some cases Buddhist beliefs.
Vastru shastra are the textural part of vastuvidya the latter being the broader knowledge about architecture & design theories from ancient India .

Tips to ensure vastu shastra compliance in your home .
- Pre construction
- House entrance
- Kitchen location
- Master bedroom
- Toilet location
It is recommended that one performs a BHUMI POOJA, before starting the house construction beginning & heralds a good start to the proceedings
East is the most auspicious direction for entrance of a home. This is because the sun rises in the east & is said to bring on positive energy & light into the household. The other acceptable direction that the house entrance can face in towards the north east.
The south east corner of the house is the most ideals one for the kitchens location & cooking supposedly should be done while facing the east however, please bear in mind that the kitchen should not be located directly in front of the main door of the home .
The Master Bedroom should be located at the South West corner of an East-facing home. From our perspective, if you follow house entrance & kitchen location, you will ensure that you can sleep soundly without having to let the aroma or the noise accompanying the cooking to wake you up. Square and rectangular shaped bedrooms are recommended, so that you can leave the avant-garde construction to the other sections of the house.
The toilet location is another vital aspect, both from the perspective of Vaastu as well as from a general health and aesthetics angle. Toilets are to be located in the North-West corner of the building or the North-West corner of the rooms. If this is not possible, South East toilets are allowed. It is also recommended (and sensible, in our opinion, we might add), that the toilets, kitchen and Pooja room in the house should not be adjacent to each other.
There are numerous other terms and conditions that one must apply to get the perfect Vaastu compliance in the house. But we’re afraid that giving you all the information necessary and having you find a home that meets the parameters perfectly might add a couple of extra years to your house purchasing process.
