DETERMINATION OF KSHETRAPHALA
Choose any asterism among the 27 asterisms from aswini to revati that suits
well with the name - asterism of the person by the 8-kuta judgments. This will
be the house-asterism. Aridra, punarvasu, pushyami, alesh, makha, pubba,
satabhisha, poorvabhadra, uttarabhadra are generally considered auspicious for
Kshetraphala. So, one can choose any one among these nine asterism too, that
would suit the name-asterism of the person. This will be the house-asterism.
This is not necessarily the asterism at the time of beginning
Count the house-asteris from Aswini. Subtract 1 from this number. Now multiply
this by 152.
Select any Ayam from the four odd-numbered ayams, namely, dhwaja, simha,
vrishabha, gaja. Subtract 1 from this number. Multiply it by 81.
Add the results of (a) and (b) and to this sum, add 17 and divide it by 216.
The remainder is Kshetraphala. You can divide Kshetraphala by your chosen
length to get breath or by your chosen breadth to get length. But make sure
that the breadth is an integer. If the calculated Kshetraphala is too small for
our intended house, you can add 216 or 432 or 648 or 864 and so on, to get your
Example: arun is the name of the person who intends to build a house. His name
asterism is krittika. Makha is his chosen asterism because it matches with
krittika by 8-kuta judgment. Makha is therefore his house-asterism.
Makha is the 10th asterism from aswini.
1 = 9
152 = 1368
His chosen ayam is gaja, the 7th ayam from dhwaja.
1 = 6
81 = 486
486 = 1854
17 = 1871
R = 143
So for makha house-asterism and for gaja ayam, the kshetraphala is 143 in which
case the breadth can be 11 yards and the length can be 13 yards of the
house-plinth. It is better that the length between the souths and north should
measure Â¼ more than that between the East and West in the house-plinth. This is
called Chandra viddha.
therwise it is surya viddha which is mediocre. That
is, prefer always a square plot but in the case of rectangular plot, avoid
surya viddha. Choose any one of the kshetraphala from the table on the next
page that suits you by the least shadvarga.
The six Vargas are 1. Ayam, 2.dhana, 3.rina, 4. Weekday, 5. Asterism and 6.
AYAM: multiply Kshetraphala (K.P) by 9 and divide it by 8. The remainder gives
ayam. The remainders will be 1. Dhwaja, 2 = dhuma, 3 = simha, 4 = swana, 5.
Vrishabha, 6 = khara and 7 = gaja respectively, 1,3,5,7 are good.
Kshetraphala as calculated fro the 9 auspicious house asterisms and the 4
auspicious ayams is as shown in the table:
Kshetraphala*9\12 = remainder which is Dhana.
Kshetraphala*3\8 = reminder which is Rina.
Kshetraphala*9\7 = reminder which is weekday.
Sunday and Tuesday are evil.
Kshetraphala*8\27 = reminder which is house-asterism.
Aridra, Punarvasu, Pushyami, Aslesha, Makha, Pubba,
Satabhiha, Pooravabhadra and Urratabhadra are auspicious.
For Kshetraphala calculated for other asterisms,
count from the name asterism to the house asterism of K.P. Divide this number
by 9. The reminders 2, 4,6,8,9 are good. 1,3,5,7 are evil. The name asterism
and the house asterism should not be the same.
Kshetraphala * 6\9 =Reminder which is Amsa.
Remainders 2, 3, 7, 8, 9, are good. Reminders 1,4,5,6 are evil. 2 give
prosperity, 3 gives wealth. 7 give progeny, 8gives cattle- wealth, 9gives
fulfillment of ones desires.
xample: The Kshetraphala is143 for Gala Ayam. (See
4 out of 6 Vargas is good. Rina is greater than dhana. This is covered by amsa
which gives wealth.
For house asterism other than the above mentioned 9 asterism, if you determine
kshetraphala, see that it suits you well by Nava varga judgment. The remaining
three Vargas are ayu, tithi and dikpati.
New moon day and the 1st lunar day of the bright half are evil.
It is, therefore, advisable to first decide kshetraphala of the house-plinth
with length and breathe in yards and then construct the house according to the
palm keeping in view of vastu norms.
COMPOUND WALLS, GATE, SPEARING ROADS:
It is better to construct compound walls in the house plot before one begins
constructing a house. This prevents evil effects of vastu blemish arising in
the surroundings. The compound wall in the east should be shorter in height
than the compound wall in the west. The compound wall in the north should be
shorter in height than the compound wall in the south. This ensures good
progeny and prosperity. If it is vice versa one has to incur heavy expenditure
of money and may have to grieve concerning progeny.
If one desires to keep the gate frontal to simhadwara. See the midpoints of the
gate and simhadwara do not lie on the same perpendicular.
The gate should not be higher than simhadwara. It should have less height than
The gate should be broader than simhadwara. A gate in the east north or
north-east is best preferred. A north-east gate for east simhadwara, a
south-east gate for west simhadwara, a north-west gate fro north simhadwara are
generally allowed, since the turn of a person from the gate to simhadwara is
VEEDHI SHOOLA (SPEARING ROADS)
A Vertical road ending at a house is called a spearing road. This is one of the
evil most vastu blemishes. Since it sometimes causes death of the family-head.
This spearing never yield good and benefic results and hence there is nothing
like a good spearing road or subha vedha. At the most, the evil of spearing
road may be reduced or sometimes may be mitigated completely. See the diagram
below where four spearing roads are shown. Anyone of the four would suffice to
cause fatality to the head of the houses.
A spearing road may cover only a part of a house. The evil caused by this may
be less potential when compared to the above. See the diagram. Any one of the
eight spearing roads is capable of causing long ailment to the mistress of the
house and other troubles to the in habitants of the houses.
A spearing road is a capable if causing evil effects even though it end at or
crosses another road running parallel to the houses. The evil caused by any one
of the eight roads, shown in the diagram is mitigated if the breadth of the
parallel road exceeds the breadth of the spending road. The evil is also
mitigated if the parallel road is longer then spearing road.
A vertical road towards a house is split running in the two sides of the house,
causes vedha blemish. The causes grief and distress to the inhabitants of the
A road running in between two houses of a person has dwara vedha causing
fatality to the family head.
A declivity of a hose-plot means a downward slope of the plot. An acclivity of
a house-plot means an upward slope of plot. A declivity towards the East, North
and North-East and an acclivity towards South-East, South-West, West and
North-West are in general the accepted norms of Vastu. Here are a few types of
Vastu plots which are auspicious having both an acclivity and declivity.
(1) Supadha Vastu: Acclivity in the South and
South-East sectors, with declivity in the North and North-West sectors forms
Supadha Vasthu. This is auspicious.
(2) Deerghayur Vastu: Declivity in the North and North-East sectors, with
acclivity in the South and south-West sectors makes the family flourish.
(3) Punyaka vastu: declivity in the east and north-east sectors with acclivity
in the west and south-west sectors is auspicious.
Besides these, gajaprishtta plots and korma prishtta plots are also auspicious.
A gajaprishtta plot has activity in the south, west and North West sectors. The
inmates of this house will be healthy, prosperous and long-lived. A korma
prishtta plot has acclivity in the central sector of the plot. The inmates of
this house will always be happy and prosperous.
There are also plots with only declivities which are auspicious.
Plot of goveedhi: this has declivity in the east sector of the plot. This gives
Plot of dhanya veedhi: declivity in the north-west sector giving wealth of
Plot of gaja veedhi: declivity in the north giving wealth.
Plot of dhana veedhi: this has declivity in the north-east sector giving
happiness and prosperity.
Pitamaha vastu: activity in the east and south-east sectors, with declivity in
the west and north-west sectors of a house-plot is in auspicious.
Apadha vastu: declivity in the east and south-east sectors, with activity in
the west and north-west sector makes the inmates of the house quarrelsome and
Progakrit vastu: declivity in the south and south-east sectors, with acclivity
in the north and north-west sectors causes long illness and diseases.
Argala vastu: declivity in the south and south-east sectors with acclivity in
the north and north-east sectors gives brahamahatya dosha.
Smasana vastu: acclivity in the east and north-east sectors with declivity in
the west and south-west sectors leads to family extinction.
Syenaka vastu: declivity in the south-east with acclivity in the south-west,
north-west and north-east sector causes destruction or death.
Swamukha vastu: acclivity in the south-east, north-east and west sectors with
declivity in the south-west sector causes poverty.
Brahmahna vastu: acclivity in the south-west, south-east and north-east sectors
with declivity in the east and north-west sectors is inauspicious.
Sandula vastu: acclivity in the north-east sector with declivity in the
south-east, south-west and north-west is inauspicious.
Daitya prishtta plot: acclivity in the east, south-east and north-east sectors
and declivity in the west makes the inmates of the house poor. This is also
harmful to progeny's and cattle.
Naga prishtta plot: long sectors in the east and west and acclivity in the
south and north sectors causes' early death of the head of the family or his
wife. The inmates will be driven out of the houses.
Plot of vahni veedhi: declivity in south-east sector may cause fire accidents.
Plot of preta veedhi: declivity in the south sector may cause severe illness.
Plot of naga veedhi: declivity in the south-west sector causes fear of
Plot of jala veedhi: declivity in the west causes shortage of money always.
There are two opinions about sthavara vastu and sthandila vastu. Sthavara vastu
has activity in the south-east sector with declivity in the south-west,
north-west and north-east. Some believe that it causes family extinction while
others say it is good. Sthandila vastu has acclivity in the south-west sector
with declivity in the south-east, north-west and north-east. Some believe that
it is inauspicious while others others claim it is auspicious.
Soon occasions like house-construction, house-warming etc., he who performs
vastu pooja and offers vastu Bali in accordance with the assemblage of
ekaseeeti pada, will be free from troubles and will be happy and prosperous,
ekaseeti pada vastu means the occupancy of 45 deities on 45 limbs in the 81
fold division of vastu purushna. We find also in the classical texts, the
mention of 64 fold division, 49 fold division, 100-fold division, and 196-fold
division etc., of vastu purusha. For any class of building ekaseeti pada vastu
is given much importance. We find its exposition chiefly in matsys purana.
Draw 10 straight lines from the west border of the plot to the east border of
the south border of the plot to the north border of the plot. Now the plot
becomes a big square having 81 small squares. The names of the lines
respectively are shanta, yashovati, kantaa, vishala, parnavahini, sati,
vasumati, nanda, subhadra, manorama, harini, suprabha, laxmi, vibthi, vimala,
priya, jaya, jwala, vishaoka, Ida. Vastu home should be done to the above
The central part in the diagram has nine squares marked as B. the presiding
deity here is Brahma representing the heart of vastu purusha.
The vastu term for this is garbha or the central hall of the building. Vastu
scholars recommend its auspicious varga kshetraphala for happiness and
prosperity. In the next 16 squares, 8 deities preside. In the 24 squares 4
Draw major and minor diagonals from N.E. to S.W.
and from S.E. to N.W. the points of intersection are the vulnerable points
which are called mahamarma sandhi and upamarma. These are subject to vedha if a
wall or window or pillar is constructed. This implies that the corresponding
limb at the vulnerable point gets disfigured. The same fate would hit the same
limb of the person who builds the house.
Avoid any structure in the exterior part of 32 divisions since it is pisachca
part ruled by four evil spirits cahraka, vidara, pootana and paparakshasi.
If any defect or injury strikes any limb of the person, it means that the same
limb of vastu purusha is weakened by a prohibited structure. So vastu homa
should be perdormed to the presiding deity of that limb. Some specific results
may be attributed to the weakened limb or deity of vastu purusha.
For example troubles to women occur if the right arm of the vastu purusha is
weakened. If the left arm is weakened, it may be loss of wealth. If the feet
are weakened death of a son is probable, if all the limbs of vastu purusha are
well and intact the person becomes happy and prosperous.
Vastu pooja may be done at least once in three years. He who does not perform
vasu pooja during the house warming function and does not honour the architect,
suffers from leprosy for seven births and then goes to hell.
There may be a bit of exaggeration here. But some sort of evil effect is
inescapable not doing vastu pooja. He who does vastu pooja lives 100 years here
free from grief and dwells in heaven for a kalpa.
SIXTEEN KINDS OF VEDHAS IN VASTU
The in habitants of a house would be happy and prosperous, if the house is free
from Vedas which are 16 in number, as given below.
Andhaka: a simhaswara having no windows on its both sides from andhaka vedha.
This blemish always causes ailment to the house-owner.
Rudhira: a house constructed without following 81 divisions of vastu purusha,
forms rudhira vedha. This blemish frequently causes dysentery to the
inhabitants of the house.
Kubja: a house having entrance doors and windows of less measure of height and
breadth, disproportionate to the house measure, forms kubja vedha. This causes
diseases like leprosy, tuberculosis, asthma, jaundice etc., to the house-owner
and the inhabitants of the house.
Kana: a window on either side of a simhadwara gives kana vedha. Windows in the
improper directions to the entrance doors also cause kana vedha. This causes
eye-diseases to the house- owner.
Badhira: a simhadwara placed to the ground level causes badhira vedha. This
casues many kinds of calamities and some times death too.
Digvaktra: a house having windows of more measure of height and breadth,
disproportionate to the house-measure forms digvatra vedha. This blemish causes
loss of progeny and abortions.
Chipita: a house of low height disproportionate to the house plinth forms
chipita vedha. This blemish makes the family-head associate with base people of
vices like gambling, drug- trafficking, pornography, prostitution etc.
Vyangya: a house looking ugly and grotesque causes vyangya vedha. This blemish
causes the family head to be deformed.
Muraja: a simhadwara with either of its two sides higher causes muraja vehda.
This causes family- extinction and poverty.
Kutila: the roof of the house at a lower height that is the height of a person,
forms kutila vedha. This causes death of the family-head.
Kuttaka: a house built on the up paved ground causes kuttaka vedha. This gives
troubles from devils and evil spirits.
Supta: a house built on the sleeping ground form supta vedha. a ground is said
to be sleeping if the house construction begins in ghatis 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 of
the 5th, 7th, 9th, 12th, 19th and 26th asterisms respectively counted from the
sun's asterism. This blemish causes death of the family head.
Sankapalaka: a house constructed without pillars forms sankapalaka vedha. This
blemish indicates ugly-looking inhabitants.
a formidable and hideous simhadwara forms vikata vadha. This blemish
causes the death of the family head.
Kanka: a house having 1 corridor is good. But a house having 3 or 5 corridors
of unequal measures of length and breadth forms kanka vedha. This blemish
causes distress to the family head.
Kaikara: a house of extraordinary height and width causes kaikara vedha. This
blemish cause's harm to the mistress of the house.
Placements of the main entrance door (simha dwara)
DIRECTION: The direction of the main door depends on whether your janma rasi
(moon sign) is watery, earthy, airy or fiery. The main entrance door may be
fixed in the east for those of vrishabha, kanya and makara (earthy), it is good
in the south. For those of mithuna, Tula and kumbha (airy) it is good in the
west, for those of mesha, simha and dhanus (fiery) it is good in the north.
In the modern times any one of the three following measures of length and
breadth of the main entrance door and other doors could be made use of.
Numbers of doors
The doors should be of even numbers, but the number of doors like 10, 20, 30
etc. (digits with zero) is harmful. One entrance door is permissible, if it is
in the east. For shops, commercial houses etc. one entrance door is good.
Incase of three entrance doors, the south one should be closed. We should adopt
the same principles of doors for fixing windows, almirahs etc. the no. should
Some essential principles
A door should be frontal to another door or a window. A window should be
frontal to another window and an almirah should be frontal to another almirah.
But the entire doors of a house not are telescopic or compartmental.
Any door or entrance door should be lesser in measure of length and breadth
than the main entrance door (simhadwara). But all the other doors should be of
equal dimensions. See that no door, window or almirah is fixed on the middle of
ALLOTMENT OF ROOMS IN THE HOUSE
POOJA ROOM: The north east room may be used for
pooja. Incase no separate room pooja is spared. The northeast corner of the
kitchen may be used.
KICHEN:South-east room is most preferred. If this is not possible, any other
room may be L-shaped platform in it in the south east such that the cook can
face the east for cooking.
BEDROOM: This can be in the south west.
STUDTROOM: This can be in the mid west in between the south west and west.
DINING ROOM: This can be in the west.
BATHROOM: The bathroom in the east is the best choice. But in the houses of
main entrances in the east the alternatives are the north east, North West and
TREASURY: A bedroom in the north may be used to keep money, gold etc. in the
safe lockers adjoining the north wall of the room.
TOILET: This can be in between the south west and south attached to the
OVERHEAD TANK: Provides over head tank in the mid north or in the mid east of
the 1st or the last floor.
BALCONY: Keep balconies towards north & east. Cover the balconies in south
and west with curtains and glass.
PORTICO: Prefer the portico towards north east lower than the roof level.
TERRACE: Open terrace should be in the north, east and north-east.
STAIR-CASE: For a multistoried building the no. of storey should be odd. The
height of the upper floor be 1/12 less of the lower floor.
To keep open space on all the 4 sides of a building is much favored, since it
gives all-round happiness and prosperity. The open space in the east should be
more than the one in the west. The open space in the north should be more than
the one in the south. More open space should be left in the north east sector
of the plot. a latrine could be constructed if necessary in the south west
corner covering the walls of the south and west. a well/bore well/sump should
lie in the north east sector of the plot.
An outhouse may be built in the south west corner of the plot. An out space may
be built in the south west leaving the west border wall. It can also be built
in the west. But no outhouse should be built in the North West covering the
border wall of the east and north. The out house should not be higher than the
Never keep a septic tank in the north east. Keep it in the south or in the
TREES IN HOUSE COMPOUND
In the house compound milky trees and fog trees are in auspicious and they
destroy the riches of the house owner. The thorny trees cause troubles from the
enemies. While the fruit trees causes' loss of progeny. If one doesn't want to
remove such trees, it is better to plant any auspicious trees like jack,
coconut or tulsi in the midst of those inauspicious trees. The trees of banana,
turmeric, peepal and neem would not allow the house owner to flourish.
1) If the water flows out towards the north east from house compound, health is
2) If the water flows out towards the south east, a grave concern for the
progeny is probable.
3) If the water flows out towards the east. Prosperity is assured.
4) If towards the south, family quarrels are probable.
5) If towards the west, insults and disappointments may be frequent.
6) If towards the south west, serious illness is probable.
7) If towards the North West, the inhabitants may never be happy.
8) If towards the north they will be happy.
If one intends to make the house bigger, the extension should be in all the 4
sides, but never on one side. Extension in the eastcauses enmity with the
neighboring friends. Extension in the south causes fatel diseases. Extension in
the west causes loss of money. Extension in the east and in the north is not
If a person intends to construct or purchase another house by the side of his
existing house, east is most preferred. The next preference could be north, but
never the south or west. But if the construction is unavoidable in the south,
make sure that it is constructed at a distance twice the height of the existing

West. If the plot is extended to the east, north east or north, your prosperity
Two partitions of a house are not advised. The inhabitant in one partition only
flourishes more than four partitions bear no specific result. If the house is
divided into 2 partition, front and back, the one who lives in the front
portion, only will have good progeny. Among the brothers the elder should
reside in the east and north. The house of the brothers should never be frontal
