Plan Home

Everyone dreams of owning a home. To make this dream a reality, we should first consult an experienced architect and plan the house. We should then approach a good Vasthusasthram consultant and adopt necessary changes in the plan of the prospective site.

Some points to be kept in mind while planning your home

There are eight directions - East, West, North, South, Northeast, Northwest, Southeast and southwest.
There are specific positions for everything including jewelry and money.
While sleeping, the head should be placed towards the South for good health or the East to be blessed by God. Never place your head towards the North.
Kitchens, bedrooms, dining rooms, prayer rooms, store rooms etc. have specific positions.
All plants have medicinal value if used correctly. In the garden, plants like the holy Basil (tulsi), Neem, the Bael (vilwa) etc have to be placed as per Vasthusasthra.

Bed Rooms

Everyone sleeps for an average of 8 hours per a day. i.e. 1/3 of a day. This would mean that we spend roughly 240 hours of a month sleeping, that is 10 days. In a year, we would sleep for 120 days or 4 months and that would amount to 20 years of sleep in 60 years! Hence the bedroom is the most important room in a house.


We start our day going to the kitchen early morning to fix breakfast. The kitchen should face the east so that the sun's first rays enter it . The powerful sunrise during Utharayanam can only be effective if the kitchen faces the southeast with a window to the east.
