Selection of good plots according to Vastu Shastra

In this article we will learn about selection of good plots for building homes, according to vastu. Some types of plots are considered very auspicious for building homes. They create positive energy and lead to a great life. On the other hand, some plots lead to loss of health, money and happiness. Thus, it is very important that we follow vastu while making choice of plot or land for building a house.


The most important thing is to visit the plot and see how it feels to be on the plot. It is very important that one feels good while being on the plot, he is going to buy. If the buyer doesn't feel at peace when standing on the plot, he should not buy it. A very popular method of checking the land from ancient times is to dig a hole in the ground and fill it with water. One should check the water after 2-3 minutes. If there is water in more than half of the depth, the land is very good for purchasing. If water is just half the depth, the land can be considered average. In case there is no water left, it is a very inauspicious plot. One can also check the positivity of land by growing a sapling on it. If the sapling sprouts, it is considered auspicious. A land that is cultivable is always good for buying. Barren land, land with lots of bones or rocks are not good. Land that has black soil or clayey soil is also not suitable. If the previous owner of the land has been suffering from a chronicle disease or is facing huge financial losses, his property is not auspicious for buying.

Along with a good choice of land Planning the interior of the house according to Vastu and planning exterior of the house according to Vastu is also necessary. Before we move further, let us know about the different Directions mentioned in this article. The eight directions are North, South, East, West, North-East (NE), North-West (NW), South-East (SE) and South-West (SW).
