Wells and bores in the plot
The lane jutting flaws
The stair-cases
 
Selection of site includes shape, soil, jutting (or site facing lanes and etc) and surroundings.

According to vaasthu principles (Maanasara) the site should be tested in following seven characteristics:
1 Shape
2 Color
3 Taste
4 Odor
5 Sound
6 Composition (chemical)
7 Sense (touching)
 
  Shape

 
The above picture shows auspicious and prosperous sites. The hatched portions are extensions of the plots, which give positive results according to Vaasthu science.

The above picture shows inauspicious and bad extensions of the plot.

Though the earth receives the early sunrays equally (alternate six months) on north and south faces, north direction is considered auspicious because of the following reasons:

1. Considering the plot and building as a magnet there will be continuous flow of Electro magnetic waves from north portion to south. To provide free flow of these waves vaasthu suggests more space (setback) on north than south direction.

 
Auspicious effect:
north and east directions are proved scientifically good directions. Extending the length of east and north and minimizing west and south faces in four different extensions will give auspicious effect.
 
Bad effect:
extending length of west and south and minimizing the east and north faces in four different extensions will give bad effect...........
 
  Colour
 
a
If the color of the site is white, it stands for education and knowledge and vaasthu suggested these sites are auspicious, prosperous, and best for the construction in all aspects.
The soil in white color (hard, ordinary and soft rock which contains more silica) will have bearing capacities from 45 tonnes per square meter to 200 tonnes per square meter and above.
b
If the color of the site is red which stands for power and vaasthu suggested these sites be better for the construction activity as these sites possess glory and reputation.
The soil in red color (morrum) will have bearing capacities from 22 tonnes per square meter to 44 tonnes per square meter.
c
If the color of the site is yellow which stands for business qualities and vaasthu suggests these sites are good. These sites are good for health and wealth.
The yellowish soil (compact to loose sands and clay mixed with sand) will have bearing capacities from 15 tonnes to 22 tonnes per square meter.
d If the color of the site is black which stands for ignorance and Vaasthu suggests these sites are not suitable for construction.

The soil black-color (marshy clays, soft clays, black-cotton soils and alluvial loam and soil) will have bearing capacities from 2 tonnes to 22 tonnes per square meter. But nowadays it is possible to construct multi-storied buildings by providing reinforced concrete cement isolated footings, pile foundations and raft foundations.

As per vaasthu one more test is also conducted to judge the bearing capacity. We are suggested to dig a hole in the central part of the plot and refill the same earth into the hole. If we found the earth is deficient the land is considered not suitable for construction. If we found the earth fills exactly then it the land is considered as good, if we found excess of earth, then the plot is considered as best site for construction activity.

The excess of earth shows that the plot has the soil more compacted, less void ratio and has good bearing capacity. The deficient earth shows the plot has more voids and leads to increase the cost for buying extra earth and paying the labor for compacting the ground............

 
  Taste
If the taste of the soil is sweet, the plot is considered as good. If it is hot (chilly)-the plot is victorious, if it is citrus - it is wealthy and prosperous, if it is bitter- it is bad.
 
  Odor
If the smell of the soil is citrus then it is considered prosperous and auspicious. If the smell is bloody-it is good, if it is alcoholic-it is prosperous and if it is bad smell- it is not suitable
 
  Sound
We are suggested to dig a hole in central portion of the plot and fill with water at sunset. If the water percolates slowly with out any sound, then the site is considered good. This shows the soil in the plot is compact enough and less voids.

If the water sinks with turbulent sound, the plot is considered very bad.
 
  Composition (chemical)
This characteristic refers to geology and chemistry. If the site contains bad minerals and salts it decays the foundations. Then the foundation has to be painted with anticorrosive. If it is siliceous, it is considered as the best for construction.
 
  Pest Control
Indian Pest Control Association recommended chloropyriphos to treat the soil and underneath of masonry structures in order to safe-guard the buildings from pest and rodents.
 
  Wells and bores in the plot:
According to varahamihiracharya in his bruhathsamhitha wells dug in this directions will have following effects:
 
North
wealth and prosperity
Northeast wealth, health and prosperity
East loss of children
South east fear of fire
South fear of enemies
Southwest clashes with women
West bad effects on women
Northwest poverty
 
However the text Manasara says a well in southeast also good.

As a result vaasthu suggests wells in north, northeast and southeast are good. Wells and bores in westward and southward directions will have following bad effects.
 
1
The harmful gases expel through voids presents in wells. As the winds in India flows from southwest normally collects the gases and spreads into the house.
 
   
2
Water gets heated slowly and cool down slowly compared to any building materials. So the heat energy gained by sun in west and south directions after the noon till sunset will remain in water present in this direction. So dwellers will experience the heat waves even after sunset.
 
 
Well in northeast should be round in shape. If it is square or rectangle it blocks the way between north and east considerably. And should provide space surrounding the round well in order to clean the area left in-between north and east compound walls and the well.

Vaasthu showed a way to divide the northeast corner into north-northeast and east-northeast by drawing a line joining the northeast corner of the compound wall and northeast corner of the building.............
 
  The lane jutting flaws
The lanes that jut the plot will create wider scope for passing of the cosmic rays, wind, and rain. So there was need to decide the merits and demerits of the lanes that abuts the plot. Vaasthu rules out the plot whether it is auspicious, prosperous, or not suitable.
 
In above picture it is shown all possible eight roads, which abuts the plot. As per Vaasthu these lanes that abuts the plot are good.

1. Northeast corner of east face of the plot

2. Northeast corner of north face of the plot
 
In India winds blows from southwest, northeast, east and northwest Directions. Most of the winds come from southwest direction.

As northeast corner kept more opened in both east and north face of the building in order to have cosmic rays from northeast corner. The roads that abut the plot add more rays to the plot as well as building. And the winds from southwest corner will not create any vacuum as northeast corner kept opened in both east and north directions. For this reason Vaasthu suggests to keep main doors in this region which are called as uchcha sthana (peak-level).
3. Southeast corner of south face of the plot.

4. Northwest corner of west face of the plot.


The lanes jutting the plot in these two directions will carry southwest wind, and winds from west and south directions to the plot and building. This air can be easily ventilated through the opening provided at northeast corner. For this reason Vaasthu suggests us to keep doors in this region and are called uchcha sthana (peak-level).
 
As per Vaasthu these lanes that juts the plot gives bad effects on health and inauspicious.
1. Northwest corner of north face of the plot.

2. Southeast corner of the east face of the plot.
 
The lanes that juts the plot in these two directions helps the winds more that comes from southwest take away the air present in the plot and building by southwest winds. As a result the air present in the plot and house will be sucked away in opposite direction to the normal winds (southwest) surrounding the building. And thus it creates vacuum in the house, which reduces the availability of oxygen considerable levels. In long run this affects the health of the children and aged people and leads to serious and permanent health problems. For this reason Vaasthu suggests not to keep main doors in this region and are called as neecha sthana (low-level).
 
3. Southwest corner of east face of the plot.

4. Southwest corner of south face of the plot.
 
The lanes that juts the plot in this directions helps in affecting the plot and building more by sunrays which contains harmful ultra-violet rays and infrared (heat) rays.

The direction of the rain becomes the direction of prominent winds (southwest); rain through the lanes that juts the plot affects the southwest corner of the building..............
 
  Stair case
They suggested the staircases that comes along east and north walls of the building not to touch the walls and maintain a clear distance minimum of 3” to 6” in order to provide passing of early cosmic rays, its radiation and ventilation.

The picture shows the three-dimensional view of all possible positions of staircases as per Vaasthu.

Taking the staircase along the north walls as example in side the house, the direction of stairs are so designed from east to west to go up to felicitate the dwellers to have early cosmic rays and ventilation through opening provided in northeast region, when they use the stairs. If the stairs laid west to east in this case it stops the ventilation and darkens the region.

We can observe so clearly the outside staircase (dog-legged) along north wall is so designed to permit sunrays to openings provided in northeast region

SHANKU STHAAPANA:

Initially bhoomi pooja has to be performed before construction of a building. After that Shanku has to be installed in exactly middle portion (Brahma Sthaana) of the plot as shown in figure. The Shanku safe guards from all bad forces.

The earth has electro-magnetic field by virtue. It emits electromagnetic radiation upto the height of sixty floors. There are several such rays for example Hartmann grids, curry lines, rays from fissures and underwater lines.  The upper octagonal shaped portion absorbs these geopathic forces from all eight directions, stores in its central part and neutralizes its effects through the lower spherical shape. Everybody knows that a wood is a bad conductor of electricity. Here a fresh wood is collected from Chandra, paala, teak, sandal wood. When shanku is placed in earth it absorbs some moisture. Then shanku becomes conductor of electricity and electromagnetic forces. It saves all inmates of the building from radiation coming from earth.

PAINTING THE HOUSE:

We can select vibgyor colors to the rooms in clock wise direction to balance the universal light concept.
