The shape of land or plot plays a very important role in success and failures. There are two typical shape which always talked about in Hindu culture is Cow and Tiger or Lion face shape plot.

Gau Mukhi faced plot is very auspicious for both residential but not for business while Wagh Mukhi is mostly in-Auspicious for both. Fengshui consider Wagh Mukhi as auspicious.

I have seen few Wagh Mukhi plots where none of the business has survived for long. Two place where I have seen as many as 3 different shop outlet in the span of 4 years. These outlets are multi national brand and they were not successful. But there are small shops with perfect 90 degree cut and shape of Wagh Mukhi plot are doing excellent. Wagh Mukhi for residential is 100% No-No.



Important note for extension as per Vastu

  • It is always recommended to have an extension towards North-East section of house/office or plot.
  • Avoid extension towards any other directions
  • If you are buying extra land always go for N-E section of earlier plot
  • Never go for small plot which has larger plots on either side
  • Make sure N-E section is lower or downward slop than rest of the side of the plot.
  • If you have extension on other sides (not N-E section) then it can be corrected to some extent but you need to consult Vastu expert for this.


Three significant principles to lead a overall happy life.

Three significant principles to lead a happy, successful & grand life.

  • The Northeast zone of any plot should never be depressed, cut & rounded. The Southwest zone should never be extended/raised/protruded.
  • Any under ground water source e.g. well, bore well & Under Ground Water Tank etc. and hole, slope of the earth & floor should be in the North, East & Northeast zone only. Do not construct a septic tank in the Northeast zone.
  • The main gate of the building could be kept any where in East of the Northeast corner, South of the Southeast corner, West of the Northwest corner & North of the Northeast corner. The main door should never be in the East of the Southeast corner, South of the Southwest corner, West of the Southwest corner or North of the Northwest corner. Very Important – the main entrance should never be in the South of the Southwest corner & West of the Southwest corner, in any condition.

In Feng shui there are five basic elements and based upon their nature they support each other very well which is call constructive or productive cycle. The placement of items in house should be based upon this cycle to have positive harmony in house or work place.

If things are placed as per Destructive or Non-Productive can cause negative energy flow, which is not beneficial.

Here is the presentation of both cycles.

Constructive OR Productive Cycle



Most of the religion or Mystic study highlights auspicious items such as photo, plants, yantra or mantras etc… so in Feng shui there are five most sacred animals which has immense significance.

These are:

  1. Tortoise
  2. Tiger
  3. Snake
  4. Phoenix
  5. Dragon

Many of the above mentioned animals also have high regards in Hindu culture. For an example snake is around the neck of Lord Shiva.Tortoise with Lord Vishnu and Tiger with Goddess Durga. It is also believed that the bird Phenix was originated from India. All these sacred animals are associated with house and their position because of their quality.

Snake being the controller of all four – it is place in Center (I guess this also goes as per Hindu Lord Shiva – who carries snake around his neck and known as creator and destroyer).

Tortoise is place at back where the back is weak or open space. i.e. back of the house with open space or river or read or at back of the office room where window or door, children studying with back side wide open, where you are dealing with customer and have open space.

The Phoenix bird is known for fire and rising from ashes. It flies high in sky – which denotes higher opportunities or ability to see what’s coming. Phoenix should be place opposite direction of tortoise. As its known for higher visibility of things and rising from ashes – which also highlights rising from failures. Phoenix denotes open space – so having open space in front of house is must likewise having open space in front when one is sitting in office.

Dragon considered most auspicious animal in Chinese culture, where all ceremony centered around dragon. Dragon is responsible for all auspicious events in life. It is believed that delighted dragon brings happiness and prosperity and unhappy dragon opposite to that. Dragon should be placed in left side of the plot or have high rise on left of the plot. Dragon should be placed opposite to Tiger – so consider this while placing both in house/room/plot etc…Not having strong position on left side can make a person weak.

As we all know Tiger are the most fearsome creature with proper planning, swiftness and determination in their act. They never give up and do not fear of anything. The placement for this is right side of the plot/house etc…. Opposite to dragon. The placement of Dragon adn Tiger can be achieved in house by placing furniture according to Dragon and Tiger’s placement.

Snakes are highly depended on vibrations as they have very weak eye sight or sense of hearing but vibrations are the driving force for them. Similarly one being in center can feel the vibrations across the house. Being in center and surrounded by other four also serves the purpose as each have positive energy to contribute

As I have mentioned earlier, the Phoenix flies high and rise from the ashes so the most suited place for Phoenix is front. Having it in front can sense what’s happening and direct rest of the four. Similarly, the front house should be designed such a way. Water flowing front of the house or wide open space.

As I have been studying many mystic books and from experiences I can easily relate things between different school of thoughts. There are lots of correlation between Indian Feng Shui (Vastu Shashtra) and Chines Feng-shui. Above article does have number of similarities with Vastu Shashtra. Both science highly regards the points mentioned above. I strongly advise one should consider how things are placed in ones house/plot or office. If design is as per this sure to bring bring health, wealth, fame and fearless nature.

There are lots of other points that needs to be considered to make a perfect home and that requires proper study of ones house. But above highlights can surely be considered without going much into detail study.
