We all care about our homes and spend time, effort and money, trying to make them more comfortable. Once the house is constructed, it's not so easy to make the structural changes. Here are some of the remedies suggested that you can do yourself to remove the Vastu dosha and bring prosperity in life.  

*Allow a bright light on the main door.

*Avoid keeping a television in the bedroom. Televisions and computers should ideally be placed in the southeast corner of the living room or study room and not in the northeast corner or southwest corner.

*Avoid keeping any water features or plants in the bedroom.

*Do not use separate mattresses and bedsheets.

*Arrange the furniture to form a square or a circle or an octagon.

-- Place a picture of a bright sunrise on the southern wall in the living room.

*Dining room should not be exposed to the front door of your house.

*Never put a mirror in the kitchen.

*Keep the broom and mops out of the sight in the kitchen.

*Keep the bathroom and toilet door closed as much as possible.


*Windows should open outward normally.

*Do not keep prickly cactus, or other such plants in the house.

*Place an aquarium in the northeast corner of the living room. An aquarium with nine gold fishes and one black fish, in the northeast corner/portion of the house, is very good.

*Place a happy family picture in the living room.

*Ensure there are no high trees like Banyan, Pipal, Thornytrees whose reflection falls on your house.

*There should not be obstructive houses surrounding your plot.

*The house should be airy with enough water resource.

*The toilet seat should be installed on the south or west wall.

*One should never hoard stale food, withered flowers, torn clothes, waste paper, waste materials, empty tins, old jars and useless things. These things prevent Lakshmi from entering the house.

*If the house has marble flooring, see that the old leather shoes are not lying here and there. Marble is considered to be a holy stone. If possible avoid marble in the bedroom, bathroom, and toilet. In a place of worship in the house, it is necessary to have an open atmosphere. Use marble in the Puja room. Take care that there is enough light and air.

*Since the toilet should not be near worship room; if at all its there, then it should not be used and should be kept clean always.

*Keep cleanliness. Use sea salt and Gau Mutr (Cow urine) to wipe.

*Light incense sticks daily basis in the evening in the house temple.

*When sitting for worship, keep your face towards northeast.

*Cash boxes should be kept in the south direction of the room and the door of the almirah should open towards the north.

*Telephones can be placed in the southeast or northwest corner.

*The northeast area has to be kept clean, the wellbeing of male issues is found to be precarious if not kept clean.

*One should sleep with his head pointing towards the south.

*Students should be facing east while studying, for academic excellence.

*Keep the gas in the southeast corner of the kitchen; Person should face the east while cooking.

*Drinking water should be in the northeast of the kitchen.

*The statue of Lord Hanuman should not be placed in southeast. It may be a cause of a fire hazard.

*The hinges of doors should be noiseless. The hinges may be greased periodically.

*Bed should not be put under a beam.

*Efforts should be made a leave the rooms open on the northeast side.

*Almirahs and beds should be set very close to the southwest wall and at a distance from the northeast wall.

*A house should not have paintings which depict depressing scenes, i.e. like an old woman crying, scenes of war or poverty. It should have a picture of say, a sunrise, an ocean, mountains, flowers or laughing children.

*Tall trees are nowhere recommended close to the main building. For trees, the south in itself is good and so is the west. No tree should be grown in the north and the east.

*Small decorative plants and shrubs may be grown in the north and the east. The height should not exceed, say, half a meter at the northeast increasing gradually to not more than 1.5 meters as one moves from the northeast to the northwest or to the southeast end.

*Except for roses and a few medicinal ones, all thorny plants give rise to tensions in the environment. Plants exuding white sap should also be kept off.

*Amongst the beneficial plants, the best is Tulsi. It is recommended to keep at least one Tulsi plant in the northeast area of the premises, but its height should not exceed 1.5 meters.

*Growing creepers/climbers with support on the compound wall or a house wall is best avoided.
