Question South Facing Houses

Last week we paid a visit to our close friends in Dallas, TX. One of the friends we stayed with were moving to a newer district as the schools over there were exceedingly good. But they had many criteria one of them was always buy NE or N facing houses. Even if the house faces NE or N but has a water hole like swimming pool in the S or SE corner of the house is inauspicious for the people living in that home according to vastushastra.

How many of you believe and adhere to this belief while buying a house?

Re: South Facing Houses

In my town in India, the biggest Industrialist's huge house is facing South. And their company always grew bigger and bigger.

If you are staying in Texas, and if your house is facing south (that is facing Mexico), you are practically supporting illegal immigration

He is staying in Chorwad.

Anyway, the industrialist's company is growing bigger and bigger, but what about his baburao? he won't advertise about that, would he?

You mean his baburao growing obese?....or is there some inverse correlation (as I pointed out a few weeks ago in some Kamasutra type ancient text)...like if your baburao is a midget...you get to be a king!...with harem full of women for your own torment

I dont know how true Vastu Shastra or Feng Shui is, but some folks believe in it a lot. In a city like Mumbai or Pune, if you own a flat, how are you going to change which way the main door faces?

If you have a house even in the USA, it would be tough to change the direction unless you have bought the plot and then constructed the house. At that time you can define which way your house will face.

Re: South Facing Houses

Chapai, if all the houses could be constructed according to Vastu or feng shui, how will the charlatan practitioners of these arts make money? They make money on the "corrections" or "dosh removal" of the faults in construction. Hang a chime here, a buddha there and what not, and pay the consultation fees.

Re: South Facing Houses

I personally donot believe in all this. But I dont argue with the people who believe in it as faith keeps some people going.

Vastushastra must have been valid in the olden days when there was no electricity or any other artificial light sources. Hence the East facing houses and west facing balconies.

But in todays world I dont think enemies/demons come from the south.

For me it is completely by intuition/sixth sense. When you enter a house you can feel the +ve or -ve vibes/energy that the house gives out. Also I like a lot of light in my house. Gloomy and dark houses are a no no for me. Also the area in which your house is in gives a certain feeling, like whether the area is bright and lively or gloomy and dull.

Fengshui I am not sure of. But I had seen something on television it seems in fengshui if you have a small "panchdhatu"bell in the house with a hammer and you ring that bell once @ dawn and once @dusk purifies the house

I have seen lots of Indian in bay area believe in this while buying a home. Other trend I have noticed is not buying home on 'T' junction. As chinese believe it brings bad omen. In south bay most of the buyers are chinese and Indians hence Indians started following chinese belief. I guess long term planning when they would like to sell their home in future sitting on 'T' chinese won't go fo it hence losing potential buyers.

In south bay typically homes sales fast even in bad economy in couple of weeks. But if it is sitting on 'T' then it takes a while also it is factored in the price of the home.
