Vaastu Tips for Study room

Get the best out of your study room

The placement of study rooms and study tables is very important for the success and well being of children. A serene positive environment can do wonders for their mental and emotional development. However, here are some easy Vaastu tips that can align the energies for a positive yet powerful environment where your child can grow by leaps and bounds.

Study room rules:

• Student’s must study facing either the North or the
East direction. If children are studying facing south
or west they will tend to develop forgetfulness at important times, especially during their exams or at the time they need it most.

• Book racks must be in the south or west. They can be on the floor or on walls, but the direction should be south or west.

• Studying on beds, in balconies, on sofa sets or while watching television is not advisable. In fact, it is very
bad and unproductive.

• The toilet door must not be in direct line of vision of the student or the study table. Students studying in such situations tend to fall sick at the time of the exam and, therefore, are unable to deliver their best.

• Never study under the beam. This rule applies to schools and colleges as well. Students studying under a beam tend to forget what has been taught / studied.

Tips to Follow

• Students should try and wear light-coloured clothes and must avoid dark ones while studying.

• Students should eat more of green leafy vegetables and foods rich in protein. They should do so at least two hours prior to their study schedule.

• An idol of a God or an inspiring saint should be kept in sight during study time.

• The study table should not be cluttered, especially with unfinished food dishes. Students studying under such condition may initially appear to be brilliant, but this brilliance will not progress to a point where they can get good results in examinations.

Whom to worship

God is one and remains invisible in our hearts. In Hinduism God is worshiped by different names and sometimes you wonder whom to worship. Though it is a personal choice and your connection but generally one must worship the following:

Lord Shiva, Goddess Parvati and Lord Ganesha

Shri Ram, Sita, Laxman and Lord Hanuman

Lord Krishna

Lord Vankateshwara

Durga, Amba, Kali or any any form of Goddess shakti

Personal Kuldevta or Devi

Whomsoever you worship, your prayer should eventually lead to intense adoration and deep attachment to the almighty.


Chiranjeevis are believed to be still alive throughout the kalyug from the start of satyug. There are 7 chiranjeevis, namely – Ashwattama, Mahabali, Sagevyasa, Lord Hanuman, Vibhishana, Kripacharya and Lord Parashurama.

While leaving home see the image of anyone chiranjeevi while entering home see the image of Lord Ganesha. As far as chiranjeevis are concerned the popular choice could be Lord Hanuman as he is the protector while Lord Ganesha removes all omens/evil thoughts that one might carry home.

Tips on using your basement

Though staying in a basement is not a great idea, still if you have no option then it is advisable to follow certain rules to stay positive and happy. Here are some do’s and don’ts for using your basement.

As a rule, a basement is not a bright idea. It is preferable that there be no basement at all. But often due to space constraints it becomes necessary to build a basement and in such cases one can use the basement, keeping certain principles in mind.

Before we talk about the rules for a basement, let us be clear as to what is considered as a basement. Basement should not be confused with lower ground, which is different from basement. Lower ground is up to four feet below the ground level. Only when you go deeper than that it becomes a basement.

Rules for a basement
1. If there is a need for a basement, it should be built in the north or the east side and at the most at the Brahmasthan

2. It is preferable that basement should be only in one-fourth of the plot area and that too never in the south, south-west or south-east.

3. Floor level of basement should be uniform.

4. Height of basement should be a minimum of nine feet.

5. Basement should be painted white.

The basement is considered inauspicious because the sun’s rays cannot enter it. Even if the rays enter the basement, it is still not a good idea to reside there. The basement should not be used for residential purpose. People staying in basements will stagnate. There will be no growth in their fortunes and they will perpetually be living hand-to-mouth. If the need is acute, then it can be used as an office.

If used as a bedroom, the inauspicious vibes of the basement ruin relationships between the people using the bedroom. If used as a store room the finances will get ruined.

Not bad for all
Basements are not bad for everybody. It works for many like –

1. Printing industry

2. People into stitching and garmenting,/p>3. People into stationery, computers and education


Vaastu for Home Office

Working from home has plenty of benefits. You can work in the comforts of your home and most important you have the freedom to design your own work area. However following simple vaastu tips will ensure good output and improve efficiency.

Work which takes 2 hours when you face East will take 4 hours if you face West and 6 hours if you face South

Directions are Important

Create an office space for yourself where you feel most productive keeping in mind the directions. Right directions can help you increase your productivity.

1. Normally you should face North or East when working
2. Never face South while working
3. People involved in research work can face West when working
4. People whose work involves thinking should face North or East
5. Such people should face North or East even when they are not at the actual work but are only thinking
6. Thinking is a conceptual process hence ideal direction to face is East
7. Performing the actual work after the thinking is complete is best done facing the North
8. It is best to face West when taking a break during work hours


Getting Organised

Have a recognised workspace so that you don’t find yourself working all over your house; sometimes on the floor with your laptop or on bean bags or even on the bed.

Vaastu Tips for Master Bedroom

A master bedroom isn’t any bedroom. If you’re thinking of turning what you believe is the most convenient one into your master bedroom, think again. It must be in a particular location and the basic element, the bed must be arranged just so for the house to prosper and remain peaceful.

I have seen families lose their peace, happiness and stability, all because they chose the wrong room as the master bedroom. It isn’t just a room in which you relax and sleep. It holds the key to harmony and stability of your family. Follow the vaastu guidelines and you will have taken a step in the right direction.

Vaastu Tips

• The master bedroom should be in the southwest direction, never in the south-east or the north-east direction.
• It should be occupied either by the father or by the eldest son of the family.
• The attached bathroom of the master bedroom should be in the north-west or the south-east area of the room.
• Never have your bed in the centre of the bedroom.
• The bed should be along the south or the west walls, so that you leave greater open space to the north and the east.
• Sleep with your head towards the south and your feet pointing towards the north.
• Do not place mirrors on the south or the west walls.

While those are the essential vaastu guidelines for your bedroom, you must follow certain simple rules that commonsense dictates. These can be a great positive influence in your life.

• Keep the air fresh. Open the doors and windows every day even if it is for a few minutes.
• Keep your room and cupboards free of clutter.
• Make your bed every day and wash your sheets regularly.
• Clean your room regularly.
• If you share your room, make sure that the décor represents the preferences of both.
• Use happy images in your room. Do not display images that depict cruelty or sadness.
