Vastu Shastra is to ensure that the inmates of a
house are unknowingly exposed to the useful rays of
sunlight while performing their activities, even if
they are inside the house the whole day. But during
a day, people perform different activities in
different rooms at different times and the Sun’s
position keeps changing from sunrise to sunset. So
to ensure that the inmates get exposed to sunlight
constantly, each room in the Vastu Mandala is
positioned so that it faces the Sun at the time of
the day when it is most likely to be used by them.

North-East direction. Then it moves to the East,
South-East, South, West and North-West. In the Vastu
Mandala, the main entrance door is positioned in the
North-East corner to ensure that the early morning
sunlight floods the house. This explains why the
‘prana’ or life-giving energy, is symbolically
believed to enter from the North-East, early in the
