VAASTU SHASTRA | SITE SHAPE

In Vaastu Shastra, the Selection of a Site is very important since the Site represents a fixed form that radiates positive as well as negative energies depending on its location, orientation, shape, slope and soil quality. Therefore, these are the 5 important aspects to be considered when selecting a Site.
In case you already own a Site, you can still refer to the Vaastu Shastra Guidelines for Site Selection, to help you evaluate your Site, and if necessary, make corrections to make it suitable.
Here are some Vaastu guidelines to aid you in the Selection of a Site with he ideal 'Shape'. According to Vaastu Shastra, some shapes have a good effect, while others have a bad effect and some others can be used after making corrections by building a 'Vastu' compound wall so that the Site has a suitable shape.




BEST SITE SHAPES THAT ARE AUSPICIOUS FOR CONSTRUCTING A HOUSE ACCORDING TO VAASTU SHASTRA:

Square shaped site is the best shape. According to Vastu, it ensures the inmates all round prosperity and happiness.
Rectangle shaped Site is also considered good especially if the longer sides run North to South, rather than West to East. It bestows good health, wealth and prosperity.
Pentagon, Hexagon, Octagon shaped Sites are not considered good. However, if these shapes are made rectangular or square by building a Vastu compound wall, so that it appears to be a square or rectangular Site, it can be used.
Gou-mukh (Cow faced) site, if the plot is narrow in the front and wide at the back, like the face of a cow, it is auspicious.
Sites with projections/extensions in the North or East are considered good.
Sites with projections/extensions in the North-West, South-East or South-West are not considered good, but can be used after corrections by building a Vastu compound wall.

SITE SHAPES THAT ARE INAUSPICIOUS ACCORDING TO VAASTU:

Triangle shaped Site is not considered good.
Circular/Elliptical/Oval shaped Sites are not considered good for houses but are suitable for circular/elliptical shaped buildings, like public buildings.
L-Shaped Site is not good for a house
Simha-mukh (Lion faced) Site, if the plot is wide in the front or entrance and narrow at the back, like the face of a lion, it is inauspicious.
Plots with cut corners are not good. If possible you should purchase the cut part as well, so that the site looks whole.
Sites with cut-corners in the North-East are inauspicious and should not be purchased. It is like a headless body, because as per Vastu Purusha Mandala, the Vastu Purusha's head lies in the North-East.
 VAASTU EVALUATION EXERCISE FOR THE SHAPE OF THE SITE:

This exercise is just a guideline to help you to evaluate whether the Shape of a Site is as per Vaastu Shastra principles. Accordingly, you can decide if you want to buy the Site. In case you already possess a Site, then you can decide whether you want to make some corrections to the Site, so that it is suitable as per Vaastu

  • Note the score for the following question and enter it in the score sheet.
  • Total the points.
  • The points indicate how favorable your Site is, according to Vaastu.
  • The interpretation of the record of points is given at the end of the SCORE SHEET
