Fundamentals of North South East West Directions
East : Sun is for health and shine. The signal Indra is for wealth. The elephant is for power and fame. All these characters are identified only with proper east. Proper east means east should be of low level and more spacious than the west. Kuja graham symbolizes, losses and ill health. Lord Yama snatches away lives. Moment of Oxygen is very slow. South should be of high level lesser space, with heavyweight compared to North.
West : Lord Sani doesn’t accrue results even for hard-working, exhaustion even hard labor and ill health are the resultants of Lord Sani. Lord Varuna blesses gains. This is good for peasants. West should be of higher level elevated & with lesser space compared to east and heavier loads. Defects in the west result in many sufferings.
North : Lord Budha is for intelligence, knowledge, morals & selectivity. Kubera is for easy wealth. The horse is for piousness and speed. So, North should be of low level and greater space and lighter weights compared to South.
South East : Agneya : Sukrudu is for happiness, male-female relations, comfortable life arts, and marriage. Fire is for purity and destruction. Goat is for sacrifice. Defective agenda destroys a human being a scapegoat, and also tooth problems, headaches, joint pains, allergies, burnings, divorce, internal bickering, suicides, failures in missions and becomes a hardcore criminal. South east should not be of low level and eastern boundary wall should be intact, should not have veedhi sula and south west block is also not good.
South West : Rahuvu and Ketuvu are for sudden and untimely accidents and deaths. Having dead body as a vehicle demon niruti kills lives, causes vehicle accidents, loss of organs and birth of physically or mentally handicapped children. Nairuti should be of the highest level and should be free from any pit or well. South west should not have any gate or door. Should not have veedhi sula and south west west block is good. South west should not have any water.
North West : Vayavya :
Moon lord effects mind a lot. Similar to the moon’s diminishing and resurfacing of a moon. Lord Moon creates fickleness. Air does have a characteristic of mobility without any stability. Deer also runs with velocity and jumpings. Defective north west results in bad habits, becoming incompetent with fickleness, mentally unsound, earning money through unethical means, cheating., court cases, disputes, crimes, and imprisonment. Selling or mortgaging of a house.
North West should not have well and the northern compound wall should be intact, should not be closed and left open to the sky, should not have any gate or door, should not hit the road/street. North west block also not good.
North East : Brihaspati is for luck, happiness, health and for every good cause. Lord Eeswara’s blessing fulfills ambitions. Nandi is for happiness and health. The defect in North east leads to several diseases such as cancer, aids, heart attack, bankruptcy, jobless, disinterest in marriage, remained as a bachelor, late marriage, childless issues, children with mental disorders, children with dreaded diseases, female children but not males.
Defects in North East:
1) Without larger space 2) Varandah or elevated permanent seat. 3) Staircase, Bathroom or any other room 4) Floor level higher level with respect to the house. 5) Street or veedhi higher in level compared to the northeast of a house.
In other words well in the North east corner little away from the compound walls, kills some of the Vaastu defects even if any. North East block is very gaway fromhi sula is the best.
Identification of Directons : ‘Maya Brahma ‘ method :
AS shown in the picture every side should be divided into 9 parts and first and last two parts are considered as corners. The remaining five parts are considered as a direction. By dividing a whole site into 36 parts ( 9 X 4 sides ) and considering each division as 10⁰ : amounts to a complete 360⁰. Division of a site as per geometry by mayudu establishes beyond any doubt that the vaastu founded by our sages is much above the reach of current day so called modern science.
Considering a house equalent to temple and in order to undertake rotations (pradakshina) around the structure which is called pisacha stand (Demon’s place empty space should be left). Of course for places with smaller extents some empty space could be spared both in east and north . Rain water or any water collected over the roof top should fall with in the boundaries, east and north sides in particular.
Demon Space :
Human Spae :
Evine Space :
Brahma Space :
All these apply to larger plots having more 50 feet of length in all the directions,
Demon space: A
Demon space in east and north : For every 10 feet length one feet gap should be left from the boundary both in east and north.
Demon space in west and south : 1/9th of the space left in east or north should be left in either west or south.
Chiefly : In both East and North bit larger space should be left ideal compared to their counter parts i.e., West and South.
Leaving Demon space unconstructed helps in getting better light and ventilation. Contributes for strong protection to the house, particularly from the pits or sumps in neighboring sites.
Length of a house should be more than the half of a width or length of a site. Like wise the length of house should not be less than the double of the width of a house. All these principles are formed considering the said character. Earth crust gravity, attraction of Sun and Moon on the Earth.
Then alone a strong house could be ensured and a strong house means good vaastu and good results.
In case of a taller building in neighbor hood, in either North or East, construction of another pseudo boundary wall in both or either North or East could be raised, in which ever direction a taller building is raised.
In case of an empty space in either or both the West and South, construction of a satellite house/ Sub house in the South West corner is necessary. At least some cement made benches adjacent to the West and South boundaries could be constructed.
Always the empty space in corners should be in the ascending order from South West to North East . Like wise this ascending order applies to floor levels in a site or building of roof.
Triangle Sites :
Losses, unemployment, poverty, Court litigations, ill health, untimely deaths, no marriages, no issues etc.,
All the corners of a site should be with 90⁰ angle under any circumstances. South West North West should not be more, rather a small reduction could be desirable. Excess growth in South West result in accidents, tensions, heart diseases etc.,
Excess growth in North West of North will mean short fall in North East mean disastrous. Result in : Court Cases, bad habits, ill health, monetary loss. A bit of excess growth of North West of West could cause no harm.
Excess of South East of East is dangerous , resulting into short fall in North East. This may cause Suicides, Lady disputes, Accidents. Quarrels, Differences. South East of South could be in excess but very little.
All these apply to a site for which all the sides or good. If deviation the site is more than 15⁰
With a compass, the consultation of a good vaastu consultant, is must.
In case of North East the extension of this corner in a smaller measurement is enough, of course a larger extension of also will do but with care.
Whether for gates for boundaries or doors of a house the auspicious places in the four directions are shown in picture. Other instructions for gates or doors :
- Opposite to a gate or door no obstruction whether pillar or Tulasi kota ( POT ) should be there.
- No trees or heaps of stones etc.,
- Height of a gate should not be greater than a compound wall.
- Never a gate should be placed in a corner or in other words some space should be left in a corner.
- A house wall should not hit a gate
Good gates : North east of South, North East of North, South East of South and North West of West position of gates in the middle of a side also could be considered but in case of small area sites it is highly risk oriented. No obstruction either of a pillar Trees, heaps of stones or sand etc., should be allowed to come. Well tube or open, sump, septic tank, any pit should be avoided fitting. Height of the door should not be greater than the compound wall.
