When looking to buy a home in India, various people will give you different pieces of advice. Some will talk about myth-based Vastu tips, while others will be sceptical of Vastu and tell you to not believe in superstition. What should you do? What advice should you take?

The best way to follow the right advice is to ensure the person giving that advice is an expert in their field. You shouldn’t listen to every Tom, Derek and Harry when it comes to Vastu. Do your own thorough research. Or best – consult the experts at Vaastu Devayah Namah who have been practising and seeing the results of applying Vastu shastra principles for over 20 years.

While you do that…

Here Are The Top 6 Vastu Myths You Shouldn’t Believe In. 

A South-facing entrance is always bad.

This is not true. The problems that a household may face can vary with every shift of 6 degrees in the entrance. Some parts of the South-East direction may work even more fruitful as entrance than any house facing the most auspicious of all – the ishan kon direction. However, a South-West entrance may not be healthy for the occupants. 

The only problem with South-facing houses is that Vastu-balancing can be complicated. So you need an experienced Vastu consultant to help you out with it. 

The wall colours of every room of the house can be generic.

It is not necessarily true. According to Vastu shastra, the colours of the walls in a house can impact the energy and atmosphere of the space. You should know that some colours can bring positive energy and promote relaxation and harmony. There are others which bring negative energy and create tension and discomfort. For example, it is generally recommended to use light, warm colours in the living room and master bedroom. Because they create a soothing and serene atmosphere. You should avoid using shades of red and orange too much, especially if the direction is not the South-East.

The master bedroom should belong to the elder of the family only.

The myth that the oldest person in the house should automatically occupy the master bedroom is not true. According to Vastu principles, the master bedroom, located in the South-West direction, is the throne of leadership. Therefore, the functional head of the family, the one who earns the most and has the most role to play when making decisions – regardless of age, should be granted the privilege of staying in this room.

For instance, if the father is no longer working, he should pass down the reins and give the South-West master bedroom to the eldest son or daughter. It’s because the new generation now needs the benefits of stability and security that come with the South-West direction. 

You shouldn’t have a mirror in the bedroom.

It’s better to be safe than sorry when it comes to mirrors, as they can be highly powerful. Having them in the wrong place can hamper your health, relationships and wealth. In the good directions, they are no less than a boon. When it comes to mirrors in the bedroom, Vastu principles recommend placing them in a way that the body is not reflected while sleeping. This means steering clear of any direction that would allow the body to be seen in the mirror.

Ideally, you can have mirrors in the bedroom but keep them covered behind cabinets or put a curtain over them when not in use. It’s crucial to remember that you shouldn’t use mirrors as a quick fix for Vastu defects. This is a delicate and debated practice that has little success, even when done with the utmost care. Therefore, it’s best to approach Vastu defects with caution and consider consulting with a professional before making any changes.

You can place mythological or nature-related photographs anywhere in the house.

Mythological or nature-inspired images may seem like they are always loaded with positivity. However, this is not correct according to Vastu. According to Vastu principles, you should avoid images that depict violence, disaster, or cruelty in the home. This includes mythological pictures (like the Mahabharata or Ramayana war) that depict war. They can bring negative energy into the home.

On the flip side, certain direction-specific images can be used to enhance the positive Vastu of a room. For instance, you can have water-based photographs in the North-East part of the home. And fire-related images in the South-East direction. Heavy images, like those showing elephants or mountains, can be in the South-West direction. Air-related images depicting winds or motion can be in the North-West direction of the room. But having these images anywhere other than the directions they are meant for – may lead to an imbalance of energies.

Irregularly shaped houses are unlucky.

Some people believe that the shape of a house must be either square or rectangular to conform to Vastu principles. However, there is no one-size-fits-all rule for the shape of a house in Vastu shastra. The shape of a house can vary depending on the location and the needs of the occupants. Also, irregularly shaped houses can be balanced with the help of some Vastu remedies done under the guidance of an expert.
