vastu is an ancient science that governs indian architecture.

it is based on the five elements of nature or the pancha bhutas such as air, water, earth, space, and fire. it shows us how to harness their energy correctly.

the architects and builders follow the vastu rules to construct houses. these rules create equilibrium by balancing the different elements of nature. if you are facing issues or problems due to imbalance, rectify them using vastu rules.

in a vastu-compliant home, you live in harmony with nature and its five elements.

therefore, there is happiness and peace in your life.

analyse and mark a score for the house you are evaluating as per the table (+1 for agree and -1 for disagree). if you get a net positive score of more than two (a net positive score is equal to the sum up all the positives, i.e. +1’s and subtract the sum of the negatives from it), then the house is considered to be vastu-compliant.

choosing the right plants in your home as per vastu

include both indoor and outdoor plants to decorate your home.

plants in your home bring in the fresh air and improve your health and well-being. according to vastu shastra, you must keep a tulsi plant in the north-east direction of the house. tulsi plant is medicinal and is proven to give oxygen not only in the day but also at night.

you can plant trees, shrubs, and other flowering plants in your garden. keep your garden clean and remove all dead plants periodically. always buy plants from nurseries and nurture them by watering them and taking care of them.

vastu experts suggest that we must avoid cactus and other thorny plants in the house.
