Chapter 3

Dr. Shanker Adawal

Selection of land as per the cannons of Vastu is necessary and the land is judged on the basis of length, breadth, height and other related factors. Our classics have divided the lands in three sections.

1. Brahmin Land: - This land is full of fragrance which is considered good for construction of buildings.

2. Khstrya Land: - This land smells like blood.

3. Vaishya Land: - This land which is yellow in colour.

4. Shudra Land: - The land which is near graveyard or cremation ground is called shudra land and it is not used for construction work.

Auspicious site

1. Ayata - Length 10 danda, Breadth 7 danda –Allsuccess.

2. Chaturashra – Length 9 danda, Breadth 8 danda, Income.

3. Britya – Length 15 danda, Breadth 13 danda- fulfillment of necessities.

4. Bhadrasana – Length 12 danda, Breadth 11 danda Health and wealth.

(Danda = 8 x 18”, (preferably by hand-measurement of the Owner). These Danda measurement can be increased in the same ratio and decreased to the minimum of 4 Danda x 18”.)
