Vastu Shastra: Internal Planning of the House, Chapter VI, Part - 1

Chapter 6

Dr. Shanker Adawal

Vastu is based on the principle to make us live in harmony with the five elements known as Air, Water, Fire, Sky and Earth and duly invoking the blessing of the Gods of the directions. Interiors with the principles of Vastu are a bit difficult job but if everything is planned carefully, one can open the doors of the prosperity for himself. Now we will discuss every place in the house/building in detail. All the eight directions have been discussed in detail in this chapter.

Main Entrance/Doors

While deciding the main entrance of the house one should follow the cannons of Vastu. Entrance door should be in North, East or Northeast of the house. Its size should always be larger than the other doors of the house. The front door must not directly face the back door as energy that comes in to the front door goes directly out of the back door and the energy does not circulate in the house properly. While deciding the entrance it should be checked that a well, tree or any other thing is not blocking the flow of energy to the home. Doors should open inside the room and not outside. The Vastu Shastra advices that width of the door should be half of the height of the door. The main entrance of the house should be made from good quality material and it should be bigger than other doors of the house. It should have a good design and should be painted. It should look impressive, compared to other doors.

Kitchen is an important place of the house which controls Health & Wealth of the Family. It is place where a lady has to spend half of her life. Therefore after construction of the kitchen it is necessary that the interiors of the kitchen should be according to Vastu. While constructing the kitchen it should be kept in the mind that it should not be constructed under or above pooja room, toilet or bed Room. Adjacent to the kitchen the native should construct a `L’ shaped platform, near the South wall for keeping microwave oven, mixer, grinder etc.

The washbasin/sink should be fixed in the North-East corner on the platform. Pitcher or utensils for drinking water should be placed in the North – East or the North side. Essential commodities like boxes of grain, spices, pulses etc. should be in the South or the West direction. The gas burner should not be in front of the main door of the kitchen.

There should be one or two windows or air holes in the East and the West direction of the kitchen. An exhaust fan in this gap is useful. If there is a dining table in the kitchen, it should be in North West or the West side. Light weight articles can be kept in the East or the North. Mezzanine floor in the kitchen should be in the West or the South.

If a freeze is in the kitchen, it should be in the South-East, South, West or the North direction. It should not be in the North-East direction. If it is in the South-West direction it should be a feet away from the corner otherwise it always gets out of order. If the kitchen is in the North-East direction, mental tension increases and one may suffer great losses.
