ACCORDING TO VASTU SHASTRA, WHERE SHOULD THE MAIN DOOR BE LOCATED?

Posted on :22 February, 2013

The main entrance door should be fixed on an auspicious day after performing Vastu Pooja. The Location of the Main door is also very important. To figure out where to place a main door, imagine that you are standing in front of the house and divide the front facade of the house into into two parts with an imaginary, middle, vertical line. The door should be placed towards the centre, either in the left or the right half, depending on the direction the  door faces.

 

North- facing door should be in the left half when facing the house, that is more towards the  North-East. Avoid placing a door in the right half (North-West). The Reason - Its preferable to have more openings in the North and East to allow the useful sunlight constantly, through the day. Since the door is opaque, it should be placed more to the centre of the wall and windows should be kept in the North-East.

The door should not be at the corner of the walls, but a few feet away from the corner junction. The Reason - Its preferable to have more window openings towards the North and East to allow constant sunlight through the day. Since the door is opaque, it should be placed away from the N-E corner, more to the centre.

West facing door: can be located in the left half when facing the house, that is  favouring the North-West. Avoid placing a door in the right half (South-West). The Reason - Its preferable to have more window openings towards the North to allow constant sunlight through the day. It is best to avoid openings in the South-West since the Sun is in the South and West at midday and in the afternoon.

If a house has a main entrance in the West it should have a corresponding door in the East also. The Reason -To allow maximum, useful UV rays found in the morning sunlight, into the house, since it is beneficial for health of the inamtes. (vitamin D synthesis)

South facing main door: must not be in the center of the building but should be  in the right half when facing the house, that is more towards the South-East. Avoid placing a door in the left half (South-West). The Reason – It is always preferrable to have few openings in the South-West as explained above, since the hot infra-red rays of the afternoon sunlight are projected, maximum towards this direction.

If a house has a main entrance in the South there should be one more corresponding to it in the North direction also. The Reason – To allow the constant light from the North into the house.

East facing door: can be located in the right half when facing the house, that is more to the North-East. Avoid placing a door in the left half (South-East). The Reason - Its preferable to have more openings in the North and East to allow the useful sunlight constantly, through the day. Since the door is opaque, it should be placed more to the centre of the wall and windows should be kept in the North-East.

Thus you can see in Vastu, there is no bad location for a main door. Its the pseudo vastu pundits who claim that South and West entrances are bad and the entrance door should only be in the North or East, because they take the Vastu Shastra guidelines too literally – Since Vastu recommends more open space in the North and East to enable the pleasant morning light and constant North light to permeate the house, it makes sense to have the entrance from either of these directions. But it’s not a hard and fast rule.
