(a) Bed room (Particularly master bed room) of building
should be placed in the south-west. It can be slightly
deviated towards south or west, If the placement is opposite
the effect will be extremely bad, time loss of children or
financial loss or ill health, There are numerous such rules
developed to deal with every possible situation of lay out of
a building and its relation with the site and surrounding
roads.

Because of the fact that stated cause and also the stated
effect in a rule are repeatedly observable and testable
phenomena, the statement giving cause - and - effect
relationship between tow phenomena can be considered as
a valid " hypothesis" for scientific investigation.
(b) The slope of the site should run down south towards
north with permissible slight deviation of the slope clock -
wise i.e. from S-W to N-E If this satisfied, then the
occupant/owner will fetch wealth, health and fame,
otherwise effect will be negative.

(c) Highest part of the building should be at the south west


and the lowest part at the north-east, If the rule is satisfied
then it will cause owner/ occupant to uplift his health wealth
and fame, This desired orientation of high-low line of
building can be slightly deviated anti clock wise (from S to N
to S-E to N-W) with out causing any ill- effect, But the effect
will be just negative if the rule is grossly violated.
Is " Vastu" Relevants In Modern Context ?
1. INTRODUCTION

Practice of " Vastu Shastra" or "Vastu" in short which had been developed
in ancient India is spreading like wild fire now-a-days is an elaboration of a
small part of ancient practice of Vastu Shastra, This part was related to the
fortune of occupants. owner of a building, Other parts which are found
scientifically valid are normally ignored and not practiced now-a-days (e.g.)
accurate determination of geographic north which may be different from
magnetic north, Proponents of this part (called Vastu) of ancient vastu,
Shastra hail from various professions like law, medicine, Civil Engineering
or architecture, Most of them normally practice as "Vastu Pandits" applying
certain accepted rules with some variations, The term " Vastu in this paper
refers to those rules which are practiced by "Vastu Pandits" now-a-days.
It is always advocated by the propoments of the shastra that any Vastu
rule can be proved to be scientific, based on the present day knowledge
of science even though these rules are out-come of revealation by
regent visionaries of ancient India, While trying to prove any vastu rule
scientifically they resort to unscientific approach. This recent
development totally related to the practice of architecture calls for
serious investigation from the part of architect revealing the scientific
status of this subject. This is because any untruthful guidance to the
people of planning of their building may lead to wastage in term of design
quality as well was money.
2. Cause-and-effect relationship

Vastu rules are primarily based on " Cause-and-effect" relationship. I restrict


myself here only to vastu rules related to residential building and its site
planning including orientation. Any of the rules contains tow distinct parts of
physically testable phenomena.

First part is related to some kind of planning aspect of the building/house


which is considered as a "Cause" and the second part is related to some
kind of well being of the owner/occupant of the building/house "effect" of
first.

Vastu Rule = Cause + Effect.

Where, cause = geometrical properties of plan particularly in relation to


north direction.

Let me cite here few of the vast number of commonly followed vastu rules to
give an idea about the nature of the rules.
Even if we accept all above queries answered
satisfactorily , one question still remains : Why matching
of the magnetic field of both earth and human body will
cause "disturbed sleep, tension and other connected
problems" and why this will not be true when orientation
of a person in other direction ? (In this connection it is to
note that there is no mention of magnet in the original
books on vastu . In the original vastu shastra geographic
North is used instead of magnetic north. Magnetic North
may be different in orientation) declination from place to
place and time to time . At present however in India
magnetic North approximately matches with the
geographic North.
The Ten Commandments of Vastu Shastra

1. The main water source or a water feature should be


towards the North-East.

2. The kitchen, Generator room, furnace or boiler should be


towards the South-East.

3. The guestroom, store or children's bedroom should be


towards North-West.

4. The guestroom, store or children's bedroom should be


towards South-West.

5. The centre should be light and airy.


The Ten Commandments of Vastu Shastra

6. There should be more open space towards the North and


East as compared to the South and West.

7. The South and West floor levels should be higher than


the North and East.

8. The South and West boundary walls should be higher


than the North and East walls.

9. The entrance is preferred from the North or East.

raise the headside by 3".
