Vaastu Shastra helps to a great extent. Affliction of Vaastu
creates sorrows and disappointments. So houses, villages, 
towns and cities shall be built according to Vaastu. Hence Vaastu 
Shastra was brought into light by sages for the betterment and
overall welfare of society.

 
Figs 1 & 2 The plots are divided into eight sectors taking into consideration the direction North, Whether it is straight or diagonal. These sectors help us to design the house i.e., to place the kitchen in south-east, Puja in north-east, dining in west, bathroom to the east and bed room or storage to the south-west, etc.
