We always try to get rid of negative energies away from our home, surroundings etc. Some of the negative energies are inscribed in our scriptures so that we know how to stay away from them.


We give you a list of how to place the flute and peacock feathers at home.

From ancient times, our ancestors have always welcomed and respected the guests. According to Vedas, we term our guests as “Atithi Devo bhava” i.e, treating guests at par with God. We welcome our guests with great warmth and they become a part of our family.

A guest room is meant to be the room where guests stay just like other rooms and hence this guest room should be built according to Vastu principles.


Here are a few Vastu rules for the Guest Room:


•         The guest room has to be built in the Northwest direction of the house. This is the most ideal place for the guests to stay.

•         The guest room can also be constructed in the south direction, but have to be consulted with an expert before construction.

•         Place the bed in the Southwest part of the room

•         Place all electronic items like TVs, Music system etc towards Southeast corner of the room

•         File cabinet or Almirah can be kept at the South or West wall of the room

•         The guest room built at the south-east corner is good. No major trouble with this direction.

•         There are few guidelines for Guest room doors.

  1.   North East door facing East direction
  2.   North East door facing North direction
  3.   South East door facing South direction
  4.   North West door facing the West direction



•         The guest room should not be built in the South-West direction. This Southwest direction is where a master bedroom has to be built for the Head of the family and not for a guest room.

•         Avoid the guest room construction in the Northeast direction. In case, if so, then you will have to provide a window in North East corner facing north direction or west direction.

•         The door of the bathroom should not be placed directly opposite to bed in this room.

•         Make should that no beam should be running over the bed in this room. It brings a lot of miseries.
