1. Site Selection and Measurements of Site: 

For any building land is the basic requirements and utmost care should be taken in it selection. Land with low soil density is preferable for home. In Vastu Shastra  square and rectangular shape considered as auspicious, whereas triangular , polygonal and other odd shape are inauspicious. 

Actual dimension and direction are the key requirements before starting a Home design as per Vastu Shastra . A image of typical plot given bellow where each side of that plot measure correctly. For more accuracy any diagonal or corner measurements are essential.

2. Determination of Direction :

It is very important to know right direction to Planning a building according to Vastu Shastra. In ancient days gnomon is used for determining East -West line. A cone sat on the ground to observe its shadow throughout the day to determine true East -West line. Today we have magnetic compss, Now we can easily find out North direction. But Vastu direction is not always same to magnetic North .it may differ place to place. The needle of magnetic compass often be fluctuated by Electric line , Iron etc.  Therefore you need to be careful when using magnetic compass. 



3. Effects of 32 Main Entrance 

The Loaction of Main Entrance is very important for Vastu Plan . There are a total 32 entrances on all four sides. Eight Main Entrances in Each Side. For Vastu Home design only 9 (Nine) Doors are auspicious among 32 Entrances . For North facing House Plan Soma, Bhallat , Mukhya pada cosidered as auspicious. Jayant and Mahendra pada are auspicious for East Facing House Plan . Vitatha and Grihakhat are the two pada in South which is considered auspicious for South Facing House Plan. In West Side two pada name Pushadant and Sugreev are good Entance for West Facing House Plan , Varun Pada also considered aspicious door location for west facing propety.

32 Entrances of Vastu Shastra

Calculation of 32 Nos Main Entrance : Total Degree = 360

Total Sides = 4 ( East , South , West , North )

Total Entrance = 32

Each Side = 360 / 4 = 90 degree.

Each Side Entrance = 32/4 = 8 nos.

Each Entrance Measurement : 90/8 = 11.25 degree.
