is awakened. Land in sitting position is considered as the best.
LAYING OF FOUNDATION
During Ashwini and Bharimi Nakshatras, foundation must be laid
in the south-east corner. During Gurupushya Yoga and Nakshatras
like all the three Uttara Phalguni, Asarh and Bhadrapada), Mrigshira,
Shravana and Ashlesha, construction of home should begin on Thursday.
The owner of such a home begets sons and properties.
If during the Nakshatras like Ashwini, Chaitra, Vishakha, Dhamishtha,
construction is begun on Saturday and during Ardra Nakshatra it
is begun on Friday, the home proves extremely auspicious and yields
enormous wealth to the owner.
If construction is begun on Wednesday during Ashwini, Rohini, Purva
Phalguni, Chaitra and Hasta Nakshatras the home proves very auspicious
and yields wealth.
The Sun and the Moon occupy different positions in relation to
the Nakshatras. On moonless night, Sun and Moon occupy same Nakshatra,
whereas on full moon night, they are exactly opposite to each other.
If the Sun and the Moon are from 8 (eight) to 18 (eighteen) Nakshatras
apart, their conjugation is considered auspicious for the construction.
Brihaspati (Jupiter), Shukra (Venus) and Chandra (Moon) must be
in their higher houses or their own houses or be in strong position
during the laying of the foundation. Such a position yields all
kinds of progress.
Position of the Sun at the beginning of digging also yields different
results for the owner. Accordingly, if the Sun is in Aries, it yields
reputation, if it is in Taurus, it gives wealth, if it is in Capricorn,
it also gives wealth and if the Sun is in Aquarius, it give gems
and precious stones.

the man can pass his life peacefully. Hence auspicious moments (Muhurts)

moment, no work is beneficial. Hence it is extremely important to
consider an auspicious moment before making first entry into the
newly built home.
