Vaastu Shastra : The Plot

The north and east facing plots are ideal. The south and west facing plots are second.

SOIL
Living soil-trees and plants flourish and the plot from a distance looks green and has sufficient water.
White colored soil-for those in knowledge, education and learning
Red- for those in power and in government service
Yellow-for those in business
Black-for those doing physical work

Lands not suitable for living
Which have by nature trees that yield milky sap on cutting
On which shadows of temple fall
Near bridges, moats and with large holes in nearby plots
On the border of the town or center of the village
Which is always wet
With a pond on the corner and with stagnation of waste water
With pebbles, termite hills, big rocks and boulders

THE SLOPE
Rainwater should flow eastwards or northwards and exit the plot close to the northeast corner. Land should slope to the northeast

RAISED PLACES
If south, south east west and the center of the plot is raised it indicates prosperity.

DEPRESSIONS
In the east and northeast are good. If the south, west, north west an d south west zones of a plot are by nature raised and if the east, north east, and the north are by nature depressed and the road is in the north or east or both, this land according to the sastras yield unending wealth.

SHAPE
A rectangular plot is the ideal one. Open spaces in east, south and north east is good

TREES AND PLANTS
No trees opposite doors. No thorny plants. No plants that yield milky sap on cutting. No plants with red flowers. Trees should be even in number.
