Study Room

The library or study room should be located on the West side of the building, but should not be located in the corners of the house. When using a library or study room, it is best to sit facing East or North.

The bookshelves should not be in the North-West or South-West corner. Books should be in the East, North, or West sides of the room.

The door should be two-shuttered and should be located in the NorthEast, North, or West. Windows can be set on the East, North, or West walls. The walls should be painted white, sky blue, cream, or light green.

If one will not sleep in the room, a pyramidal shape (walls sloping inward as they go upward towards the ceiling) will help in study and meditation.

Brahmasthan

Brahmasthan (Central Portion of the plot) is a principle of Vedic architecture and community planning that designates the center point of a building or geographical area. Vedic architecture is based on Vastu Shastra. While constructing the building or office it is an important factor to be reckoned. It is the region around the navel of the Vastu purusha.

The brahmasthan is a special central zone in a building. It is free from any obstructions in the form of a wall, pillar or beam, furniture or fixtures and is often well lit from above, by skylights for instance.

As per Vastu Shastra the energy line running through the centre of the plot are also equally important. Much care should be taken in building structure so that these lines are not disturbed.

According to the classical text, the `Brihat Samhita’, if a Plot is divided in 81 equal squares, the central 9 squares space is the Brahmasthana. In the House and the Room also the central location similarly is considered as the Brahmasthana. According to Brihat Samhita no Pillar, Well, Tank, Load, Wall, Dirty items, Waste items, etc. should be located/kept in the Brahmasthana. The first preference is to keep thesky visible i.e. no roof upon the Brahmasthana. Secondly, in case of having a roof under the modern condition, there should not be any Beam passing over the Brahmasthana. Fitting of fans, lights, etc. should not be made upon the Brahmasthana. Some arrangements to have opening just above the Brahmasthan to view the sky shall be always beneficial. The Brahmasthana can be used for worship, meeting place of the family members or for small function. But no furniture should be located there. In the Plot, Tulsi plant can be located in the Brahmsthana, but in that case the said plant should be worshiped and in the evening candles or lamp and dhoop should be placed there. If a Deity is placed in the Brahamsthan, the Deity should face East; the worship should be made by facing the North.
