Is vastu applicable for flats or apartment?

Many people have a question in their mind that " is vastu applicable for a flat"? Since vastu shastra is an ancient science and there is no mention of flats or apartments architecture, so how is today's vastu practitioner applies vastu principles for flats or apartments? To get the answer to this question, you must know the basic logic behind plot vastu just as a piece of land is treated as a separate vastu, further division of plots each segment considered a separate vastu. Similarly, each independent flat is regarded as a separate Vastu. Suppose a person has purchased a flat /apartment (1 BHK, 2BHK, 3BHK, 4BHK, DUPLEX, etc. ) from the part of a large floor. They only bought a built-up area considered as separate Vastu for him. The same rules apply here. Just like when a magnet is broken, each piece turns into an independent magnet. So we can say that vastu shastra is applicable for flats and apartments. I hope that we have been resolved the doubts.

How To Check Vastu for Flat ?

Step-by-Step Guide

It is a common query for most people how to check vastu for a flat. From high-rise apartments to stand-alone flats, vastu checking is necessary before purchasing any flat or apartment.

Also required are birth details for astrological and numerological calculation. Let’s discuss each step one by one in detail.

How to check vastu direction of flat

Before conducting Vastu checking for a flat, the vastu direction of flat  should be determined first. Basic compass or Google Maps coordinate readings are required to accurately determine cardinal directions (North, East, South, and West). In this case, keep in mind that the compass reading given in the flat often indicates the wrong direction. So, it is very important to calibrate the correct direction from the Google drop point with the directions mentioned in the brochure.

To calibrate the readings taken through the magnetic compass or mobile Vastu compass app, the correct Vastu directions must be determined with the help of any drafting software and Google Maps. Above is a picture showing how the trusted Vastu consultancy, AppliedVastu, accurately measures the Vastu direction of a flat through Google Maps and drafting software.

Main entrance vastu for flats: Checking of the main door

The main door vastu for a flat holds the highest weight, according to many vastu specialists. The auspicious main entrance, according to vastu shastra, can become highly beneficial for its occupants. However, we observed only a few numbers of property having a natural beneficial main door. It is a difficult task to recognize such a realistic auspicious floor Plan. Therefore, you must check all the available floor plans before purchasing.

The main entrance of a flat should determine by the polar method only ( Casting of vastu Purusha mandala by angular divisions ). In the given image, we try to explain the excellent location of the main door in a shared vastu space. Among 32 entrances ( Pada ), only 9 Entrances are considered auspicious. For north-facing flats, three nos ( Mukhya, Som, Bhallat ), In the case of a south-facing flat Vitatha, Grihakshat pada are auspicious. For the east-facing, flat, Jayant and Mahendra are optimistic, and for the west-facing flat, Sugreev and Pushadant are. The most inauspicious entrances are Rog, Nag energy files for the north-facing floor, Parjyana and Akash for east facing property, Pitra, Anil, Bhringaraaj pada for the south-facing property, and Paapyakma, Sosha, Asur, Duarik for a west-facing property.

For the above-mentioned flat position of the main door, fall on the 2nd pada from the left side—the name of the pada Nag. As per various vastu shastra books ( Viswakarma Prakash, Maymont, Mansar, Samrangana Sutradhara, etc.), Naga Pada entrance is among the worst. Therefore, it is better to reject this property if you have no option correction to reduce its bad effects. It is better not to take all the flats where the apartment's main door is in the intermediate direction. The intermediate direction refers to the Southwest, Northwest, South East, and North East. Southwest-facing property is the worst of these. For northwest-facing flats, if the door falls on N1, W1, W7, then proper vastu corrections remedies have to apply to cure its evil effect. On the other hand, apartments with southeast or northeast doors can be corrected quickly.

Five Elements distribution on the Floor. ( Water, Air, Fire, Earth, Ether ) & 16 zones of Vastu derived from Viswakarma Prakash.

If you want to analyze the Vaastu of any flats or apartment, you must grid the floor plan accordingly. If you look at the picture below, you can understand how AppliedVastu consultancy has gridded a floor plan in 16 zones. The determination of sixteen zones is an essential tool for quick checking of each architectural activity. The location of the kitchen, bedroom, toilets, dining, worship room, living room, etc. Must be judged according to the vastu shastra. Architectural activity is particularly auspicious for a zone or direction, while the same architectural activity is very inauspicious for another spot. For example, the kitchen is perfect in the South-East, South South-East but very bad if it is in the North-East or North of the North-East. So when choosing a flat, you need to accurately determine the 16 directions and judge what architectural activity is in each zone.

If you look at the image below, you will see that 16 directions or zones have been given a specific color. Now the question is, what is the importance of these colors? In fact, these colors refer to the position of the five elements of Vastu Shastra. The foundation of Vastu Shastra stands on this Five Elements theory and Vastu Purusha Mandala. For a Particular Vastu, Architectural Activity, the color of the wall, interior, or any decorative items or shape reacts with the five elements for that specific zone. If the relationship is friendly, then no vastu defect will be created. AppliedVastu judges each zones strength with the help of a Bar chart or Vastu Strength Diagram. The bar chart Vastu method is used to balance any zone of any property with color therapy. In the case of flats or apartments, the color of the interior walls is decided based on the theory of five elements.
