This is for all the skeptics out there. If you have ever wondered if you could build a house without any thought to Vaastu Shastra, think again. Someone might have told you that you do not have to comply with the rules of Vaastu if your house is coming up on a small plot of land. However small the area you have, you would do better to draw up a plan suitable for it.
The best plot, according to the Vaastu Shastra, should slope down to the east. You could even consider a plot that slopes down to the north. The idea is to let in the morning light without any hindrance. Your dream home should come up on a piece of land awash with sunlight.
You should be able to watch the sun in the morning and stars in the night from your house. The “Seven Sages” are in the north. That is one reason for opting for a plot that slopes towards the east or north.
The Shastra says you should sleep with your head pointing to the south or east so that when you get up on your right side, you will be facing the east or north. Keep it in mind when you plan your bedroom, the most important place in your house after your treasury, granary, guest room and study.
