Worship Room
 

WORSHIP ROOM


North-east is the best direction to have the worship room. Its entrance must face the east or the south. North is the abode of Lord Shiva hence His idol must be installed in the worship room so that we may face the north while worshipping. Alternatively, you may face the west as well while worshipping Shiva.

Idol of Ganesh must be installed in the south. Idol or picture of Hanumana should be installed in the north. Install the idols of all the other gods in such a way that you face north or east while worshipping.

STUDY ROOM

North-east or a space between east and central positions is considered excellent. Apart from these two, south-western corner or a space between the extreme west and central position is also considered better.

Walls of the study room should be painted light green or light yellow. Green is governed by Mercury that rules faculties like writing and study. Yellow is the colour of Jupiter, the ruler of mind. Picture or idol of Saraswati, the goddess of learning should be installed in the study room. Alternatively, you can have pictures of some religious teacher, parents and religious scriptures as well in your study room.

CHILDREN'S AND ENTERTAINTMENT ROOM

Children's room should be build in the north-western corner. North-west is the angle governed by air and the Moon and gives energy thereby developing children's natural curiosity and knowledge.

Room of a small kid should have ample toys but should not have anything that causes hurdle to the kid's movements. It should also have sufficient ventilation. Teenaged kids may decorate their room as per their hobbies and interests.

Entertainment room must also be built in the north-west direction. But the means of entertainment should occupy the south, south-west or west direction in the room. North-east, north and east direction should be left vacant.

COURTYARD

Brahmasthana at the centre of the plot is the best location to have the courtyard. In this regard Brihatsanhita says:

SUKHAMICHCHHAN BRAHMANAM YATNADRAKSHED GRIHI GRIHAKTAH STHAM | ACHCHHISTADYUPDHAT GRIHPATI RUPATAPYATE TASMIN ||

Those, who desire for all kinds of comforts and richness, must take full care of the Brahmasthan in their plot. It should be reserved for the courtyard and no unholy and impure things like shoes and chappals, garbage etc. ought to be left in the courtyard nor should the toilet be built there.

If the courtyard is kept dirty, younger ones of the household will begin to disregard the elders of the family. Well or hand pump also should not be dug or bored in the centre of the courtyard.

DINING ROOM

Dining room must be built in the south-west corner or in the western direction. In the modern houses for the sake of maximum utilization of space, drawing and dining rooms are used commonly. Hence, locations up to west central and north west are considered ideal to have dining room.

You may build your dining room in the north also and have the treasury in it as well. Members of the family may dine sitting around the dining table, but a chair on one side must be left vacant. Except south, you may face any direction while dining. If you have no room for dining purpose, it will be better to dine in the kitchen itself.

DRESSING ROOM

Dressing and personal embellishment have been an integral part of Indian civilization since ancient times. Our literature abounds in the description of embellishments from tip to toe. That is why, dressing room has a place of importance in VAASTU Shastra. But in modern time, entire concept of dressing has come within the confinement of a single dressing table. Dressing room can be clubbed with the bathroom. South-west is the most suitable corner to have the dressing room. Hence, it can be built with the bedroom of the house owner. Alternatively, the dressing table can be kept along the eastern and southern walls of the bedrooms.

TREASURY

Modern age can aptly be described as an age of wealth. Only those people are regarded as successful who earn lot of wealth in less time. Kuber is the lord of wealth and the ruling deity of the north direction. Hence, VAASTU Shastra dictates to store wealth and valuable items in the northern parts that is under the domain of Kuber. Thus stored, the valuables see an increase in them. Treasury should never be kept in the bedroom or the drawing room. Colour of the walls of the treasure room should be yellow. In the mid-part of the northern wall, Shri Yantra or an idol of Lakshmi should be installed. The real treasury should be build or installed in the north-west corner. Same religious scripture must be placed on the treasury. A treasury of iron is considered as the best.

VERANDAH

As per VAASTU Shastra construction of a house has two parts. 1) The Sun region and 2) The Moon region. In the Moon region, construction must be heavier than that in the Sun region. Verandah is a lighter type of construction hence, it must be built in the north-eastern corner. It can also be built in the north and the east directions as well.

Pillars supporting the roof of the Verandah should be round in shape. Regarding the construction of Verandah, Vrihatsanhita says:

SHALATRIBHAGTULYA KARTAVYA VITHIKA BAHIRBHAVANAT |

That is, outside the floor area and having one third width of the rooms verandah or gallery must be built.

SAYASHRAYAMITI PASHCHAT SAVASHTAMBHAM TU PARSHV SANSTHIYA ||

That is, verandah could be built all around the house also.

BALCONY

Balcony should be provided on the northern or the eastern sides. If you have to build balcony in the southern and the western sides also, make sure that balconies in the east and the north are larger.

TERRACE

Terrace should be built in the north-eastern corner or alternatively in the north and the east. But its height must be less then that of the main house.

CANOPY OVER THE DOOR

Like terrace, door canopy also must be kept at a lower height than the main house. It should also be built in north, north-eastern or east, north-eastern corners. Outer pillars of the canopy should be round in shape than angular.

PORTICO

North-east is the most suitable direction to built portico. Its height also should be less than the main house. It protects the vehicle from the sun and the rains. Usually the roof of the portico serves as the terrace; but the two can be distinct as well.

STORE ROOM

South-central part of the plot is the best location for building the store room. Shelf and almirahs, however should be given on the southern and the western walls of the store room. To store lighter items, shelves can be given on the northern and the eastern walls as well.

If your plot is too small to accomadate a separate store room, you may build almirahs, as high as the roof, on the southern and the western walls. Thus built, the almirah will have ample storage capacity.

STAIRCASE

Stairs can be given to the inside as well as to the outside depending upon the need. It can be added anywhere in east-west or the north-south axis. Then the stairs should take a southward or dextral turn, so that the person who is riding them should take clockwise turn only.

Usualy, location of the stairs in the south, south-west and the west is considered as favorable. On the first floor, a little room is built to cover the stairs. If it is in the south-west corner its okay; otherwise there should be some construction higher than this in south-west corner.

Number of steps is a stair must be odd. That is divide the number of steps, you wish to get built, by three (3). If the remainder is two (2), the number is odd. Odd number of steps is auspicious and beneficial.

Ideally the height of each step should fixed at ten or twelve inches in the residential houses. But in public places, schools, hospitals, market complexes, etc. height of each step could be fixed at one foot to one and a half feet.

SERVANT'S ROOM

In big houses rooms for the servants are also built. Arrangements for the staying of the servants, who always accompany the lord, should be made outside the main building. There is a great different between the mental, intellectual and social status of the lord and his servants. Hence, servants quarter must be built apart because it castes adverse effects on the main building. As per the dictates of VAASTU Shastra, servants quarter must be built in the south or the west and never in the north or the east directions.

If servant's quarter has to be built in the southwest corner, its plinth level must be must at least a foot higher than the main building.

If servant's quarter is to be built in the south-east or the north-west corner, it should be at least three feet apart from the eastern and the northern walls of the main building. If, you wish to build the garage, it will be better to have it in the south-western corner with servant's room on the roof of it.

GARAGE

In the north-eastern corner, canopy or portico is built in which the vehicles make temporary halt. To park them permanently, garage is required. Garage must be built in the south-western or the north- western corner. If these corners are not vacant, garage can be built in the south-eastern corner as well but never in the north-eastern corner.

It is also necessary that the northern and eastern boundary walls should not be used as the outer wall of the garage. Instead it should be built at least three feet inside the boundary wall. If garage is built in the south-western corner, servant's quarter can also be built on its roof.
