Door Directions As Per Vastu Shastra
North Facing Entrances
When we talk of them, even in North there are nine positions (Padas). Even in that, the position through which our North line passes, that is our North entrance.
Hence, North entrance are considered very good as per vastu shastra. North entrances will give you all kind of comfort, prosperity and money.
East facing entrances!
In East, there is North-East as well as South-East, but here I am talking about 90° East or straight East. If you have an East facing entrance, where you receive
the first ray of sunlight in the morning, such kind of entrances are also good according to Vastu Shastra. Such kind of entrance help to gain respect in the society, name & fame, and also help you attain happiness and prosperity.
West directions entrances
They are also considered good direction (for entrances). And, if you are getting straight 90° West, along with good internal Vastu of the house, then you can surely consider that property.
South direction entrances
People think that South facings are bad, but if one gets straight South facing, we are talking about 0° South facing, then one can surely consider such property. If you are searching for a new one, then internal Vastu principles must be followed.
People say, “I want North East entrance”, “I am getting
North-East entrance house”, But, North-Eastern entrances, exact North-East entrances are not considered good according to Vastu Shastra.
In that direction, lies the head of the Vastu Purush, and there we never recommend anyone to puncher the wall, or to enter by stepping on that position. So, if you are searching for a house and you have a choice between North and North-East facing, then always give priority to North facing.
The South-East entrances always create cash liquidity problems. The houses with South-East entrance generally have conception related problems such as
giving birth to a child is always a problem there. South-Eastern entrance invites health related issues, and can also create legal problems.
It depends on many factors, but, one can face such kind of issues (with South-Eastern entrances).
The North-West entrance, one will notice that in houses
with North-West entrance, the head of the family is generally not found in the house, can be because of work.
If the internal Vastu of the house is not good, then it creates banking related problems, problems in negotiations, and in few cases, it has been
observed a surge in legal matters. Due to North-West entrance, there is a lot of movement of people in the house, presence of guest is also in abundance.
In Vastu Shastra, out of all 8 main entrances,
South-West is considered to be the worst. Because the South-West entrance gives you misfortune. Illnesses never leave such houses where there is
South West entrance.
One does get good money from South-West entrance, but, all money will be spent on medical treatments. If you are searching for a new property, then avoid where there is a South-West entrance. No matter how good the society or price you are getting, but never take the South-West facing property.
Everyone know, South-West is bad, South-East is bad, but this article is specially for those who are already living in South-West or South-East facing houses, and because of the entrance, they are facing such kind of problems.
Problem does not only arise because of the entrance only, but equally because of the internal Vastu of the house, but here we are only talking about entrances.
If you have a South-West entrance, then you can place a yellow color trip there, any yellow colored objects can be placed there. Place some large flowerpots there, or can place a wrought iron frames. Do place a convex mirror, on top of the main entrance, on the outer side (exteriors), that will help you reduce the negativity of the South-West.
If we talk about South-East entrance, if you main door is on the South-East, then you can past two stickers of Gayatri Mantras, you can enhance the red color in that direction. Because, we know South-East is fire, its color is red. Do not put too much of red color, too much of red also invites negativity. And, the element of South-East is copper, so if you have any utensils or vessels in copper, then you can surely place them in the South-East direction.
When we talk about North-West, then we can color it in blue, one can use some shades of gray in North-West. And, in the North-West you can place paintings that depict wind, or of moving trees. One can use such painting, it balances the effect of North-West entrance.
