How does a layman know whether his house is as per vasthu or not?

Suppose your life is smooth, peaceful and business is good.  When you change the residence and life becomes miserable, peace is disturbed, loss in business, face health problems then it clearly suggests that the new house or renovation of old one is not as per vasthu.

As per Vasthu east of the north east, north of the north-east, west of the north-west and west of the south-west represent region of man..  South-east, south, sourth of the south-west and north of the north-west represent woman.  All the other directions of Vasthu affect them equally.


Do east-facing or north-facing plots are as per Vasthu?

No,  All the four directions are natural.  Construction can be carried out facing any one direction as per Vasthu.  But as per Vasthu much open space should be left in the north and east directions to get more advantages of morning vital sun rays.  Less open space should be left in the south and west directions to avoid contact with the negative rays of the sun afternoon.  That’s why there is no ample parking space in front of the south and west facing houses.  East and north-facing plots are therefore rated better.


Is Vasthu applicable to the residents of ground floor only?

Does trying a cow or planting tulsi in front of the house eradicate Vasthu Defects?

Not at all.  Due to its utility the cow is treated as mother. To tie cow, to apply the cow dung on the courtyard and to wash the house with cow urine are all our religious faiths.  Similarly, due to its medicinal properties tulsi is worshipped.  This is also our religious faith.  Vasthusasthra is a science.  Hence there is no advantage in applying any religious faith to eradicate Vasthu defects.


In a house constructed as per Vasthu, can Vasthu defect originate per se?

Many changes occur around us on their own.  These sometimes create Vasthu defects even in a house constructed as per Vasthu defects even in a house constructed as per Vasthu.  For example, small plants in the north-east zone of a house when grow become big trees then they start obstructing vital morning sunrays.  It becomes a significant Vasthu defect.  If a highway or a bridge is constructed in the north or east and a big drain is constructed in the south or west of the house it creates a Vasthu defect.  So there are many factors that may create Vasthu defect in a house constructed as per Vasthu.


Is there any use of erecting Vasthu defect prevention machine?

Not at all.  There is no mention of any such machine in any book published on Vasthushasthra from the first book to any book till 1995.  This Vasthu defects prevention machine has been invented by some greedy Vasthu consultants to plunder innocent people.  It is created by charging very high price.  It does not give even 1% relief.


Is there any machine available to search Vasthu defects?

No,  The rishi-munis,  who invented Vasthushastra did not create such a machine.  There is no description of such a machine in any old Indian or Chinese book.  Some Vasthu consultants use “Lacquer Antenna” machine to detect Vasthu defets.  By doing so they simply plunder people as this machine is basically used to measure energy of environment and human system.


Can we eradicate Vasthu defects ourselves by merely reading a few books on the subject?

No.  Vasthushastra seems very easy while reading but very difficult when applied.  Only a few general Vasthu defects can be removed by reading some books but significant Vasthu defects can not be eradicated.  People with shallow knowledge can not even differentiate between general and significant Vasthu defect.  Hence it is recommended to consult an able and learned Vasthu consultant.
