Gaumukhi Plots & Shermukhi Plots

      • if the broader part is in the North, thereby extending the North-East
      • And the road is on the Eastern or Northern side

TriangulaPlots & Irregular Plots

  • Irregular shaped plots are inauspicious because they emit negative energy
    • In case you wish to buy such plot they have to make the necessary Vastu corrections by making the plot into a square or rectangle

    • These extensions or reductions may have a positive or negative impact on the occupant
    • Extensions are favorable and auspicious only if they are in the following directions:
      • North-North-East, East-North-East, North East
    • Reductions in these directions are unlucky for occupants

Vastu Tips: Concept of Vithi Shool (Veethi Shool)

Vithi Shool

  • Vithi Shool – Vithi means road and Shool means arrow
    • Some plots have a road or lane that comes right into the plot, this is called Vithi Shool (Eg Plots facing a T or Y intersection)
    • This kind of a road may bring intensive energy to the plot
    • This particular energy can be positive or negative depending on the direction from which it is coming
    • It is positive only when road is coming from the
      • North-North-East
      • or East-North-East

Remedies for Vithi Shool

  • One can use the corner of the plot that faces the intersection as a garage or car porch etc so that the main house is not facing the intersection
  • Or One can fence off that part and use it for some other purpose like a garden or outhouse etc

Vastu Tips: Significance of roads around plot

Plots with roads on all four sides

  • A plot with roads on all 4 sides is most auspicious for residential and commercial purposes
  • And doors can be fixed on all 4 sides in the auspicious grids

Plots with roads on three sides

  • In case of roads in 3 side, we get many possibilities such as
    • A plot with roads in the North, East and West is good for residence and commercial purposes
    • A plot with roads in the North, South and East is good for for commercial purposes only
    • A plot with roads in the East, West and South is good for residence and for commercial ventures run by women

Plots with roads on two sides

  • The roads on 2 sides can be corner plots or plots with roads on opposite sides
Corner Plots
  • We get many possibilities in Corner plots such as
    • Eshanya plots: A corner plot with roads in the North and East are excellent and auspicious plots. These are known as Eshanya plots
    • Vavaya plots: A corner plot having roads in the North and West are known as Vavaya plots
      • Important to note that South-West corner of the plot should be higher than the North-East and construction is done only after proper vastu consultation
    • Agneya plots: A corner plot with roads in the South and East are known as Agneya plots
      • These are not good plots
      • Agneya corner represent fire. The excess of fire element in this plot leads to financial and other mental problems and is especially bad for women.

Vastu Tips: Colour of Soil

  • It is imperative to understand the purpose for which the land is being purchased
  • Normally the soil which is good for cultivation like red, brick red, brown, yellow soil etc is also good for the foundation of a building
    • Red Soil – Good for people such as Government employees. admin executives, armed forces personnel or legal services professionals
    • Yellow or green soil – Good for people such as commercial activities like bankers, businessmen, shareholders
    • White soil – Good for people such as doctors, engineers teachers, performing arts
  • Avoid – Black Soil or Clay color soil
    • Since it as it retains water and can cause dampness to the foundation
    • Even building may retain water and can be seen on walls
  • Avoid – Rocky piece of land
    • Not easy to build foundation
    • Gives additional expenses
  • Avoid plot with lot of worms
    • This type of soil normally is very loose and will not support the foundation well.

Vastu Tips: Best Direction for Plot

  • Some vastu expert claim only east and north facing plots are good however all directions plots are good and each has its own unique advantages
    • East: East facing Plot is good for scholars, philosophers, priests, professors, teachers etc.
    • North: North facing plot is good for those in power, administration and those who work for government.
    • South: South facing plot is good for business class and for those who work in business organizations at management level
    • West: West facing plot is more suitable for those who provide supporting services to the society
    • One of the reason for such classification is – in ancient time, India was divided in 4 castes and there was very less interaction between castes and each class people wanted to stay together


Vastu Tips: Other Important Points

  • Avoid buying a plot near to any religious building or public places such as temple, gurudwara, church etc
    • Since such places will constantly be crowded and noisy
    • If you have to buy, it should be atleast 100 meters away
  • Avoid buying a plot near to any cemetery or hospital
    • Since such places are full of negative energy
  • Avoid buying a small plot between two large plots
    • Reason is more psychological – In such cases one can construct only smaller house compared to large plot houses, hence one may subconsciously feel ‘small’ with respect to the neighbors. This can create a feeling of inferiority in the owner
  • Avoid buying a plot facing a T or Y intersection of roads (Vithi Shools)
    • Since one can see oncoming traffic and this may give you the nervousness feeling or lack of privacy
  • Plots near water bodies:
    • Avoid – A water body in the south and west is not lucky
    • Best – Water body such as a well, bore-well, river etc in the north and east
  • Big tree such as Banyan or Peepal should be avoid near plot (unless plot is too big and construction is 100 meters away)
    • Since these trees have larger roots, not easy to construct house without cutting roots
    • By cutting roots tree may become unstable
  • Plots under High Tension wires
    • Electromagnetic radiation emanating from high tension wires in large amounts can be dangerous to biological systems, including human bodies. Hence one should avoid such plots
