Vaastu Shastra has laid down certain rules and principles for every kind of building and spaces. It is always advisable to follow Vaastu guidelines while designing a plan both for personal and commercial spaces. Principles of Vastu Shastra for commercial places such as hotels, educational institutions, hospitals etc. ensure smooth flow of energy. We discussed the Vastu principles for commercial places like factory, shops, office and financial institutions in our first part, and now we’ll focus on the remaining sections of commercial buildings in this webcast.
A typical Vaastu based clinic would have everything, right from patient’s room to main entrance, positioned correctly and in a way that enhances recovery. Apparently, a clinic should be well constructed so that it heals and relieves the individual of the pain faster. A clinic should not constructed in less than 250 square ft area. However, a clinic on the first floor is an ideal option.
The patient room should be well ventilated and have a window or door opening on the north-east side to allow positive energies to enter the room. Morning rays help in quick recovery and healing. Doors and windows should face north, east or the north-eastern direction for free flow of energy and ventilation.
The electronic equipments such as generators, inverters etc must be kept in the south eastern part of the clinic. The entire remaining clinic floor should be lower than this place.
The X-Ray or laboratory room should be in the south eastern part of the clinic. A toilet in the north-western direction is considered ideal for clinics and hospitable places.
Commercial projects like restaurants should always be constructed according to the Vaastu guidelines so that owner doesn’t have to incur losses.
A restaurant should be preferably located on the ground floor. However, seating arrangement can be made on the first floor keeping the entrance and the reception on the ground floor itself.
Regular shaped plot such as square or rectangle should be used to construct a restaurant. A Vastu recommended plot plays a significant role in making business healthy and wealthy.Avoid the entrance in the south-west corner. The main entrance of a restaurant should always be in east, north or north-eastern directions.
Kitchen is the most sensitive area of a restaurant. Thus, the placement of the kitchen should be done very carefully. A kitchen should be made in the south-east or north-west direction. Other than this, there must be adequate provision for light, ventilation in the kitchen. Avoid using beams, pillars and arches in the restaurant premise as they bring losses.
According to the principle of Vaastu Shastra, a hospital needs a lot of positive energy and careful planning. Vaastu based hospital paves the way of quick recovery of patients and also helps in building the reputation of it. The ideal shape of a plot for the construction of hospital is a square plot. A plot with equal sides generates uniform balance of energy.
The height of the building should be 1.25 times more than its length as it promotes health and vitality. This is an ideal length to height ratio for a hospital building. It should also be noted that the the height of each successive storey is decreased as per Vastu principles of designing.
Patient’s room should be well ventilated with more windows on eastern walls. Eastern side windows allow the entry of positive rays into the room which help the patient in healing and recovering soon.
Doctor’s consultation room should be constructed in regular shape to attract prosperity and success of the doctor. The doctor should also sit in south, west or south-western side only while giving consultation to the patient.The emergency patient room should be located in the south-western room of the building for immediate recovery and healing.
Reception, admission desk, OPD, emergency/trauma response wing and minor OT should be constructed in the north-eastern part of the hospital.
Students should face either north or east while studying in the class. These directions promote name, fame, intellectual and professional growth.
The entrance of classrooms should be made in north, east or north-east. South-east, south-west and north-west must be avoided. North, east or north-east are the suitable direction for a playground. The playground should be large and well laid out.
Principal’s office must be constructed in such a way that he sits facing north while working. For this purpose, south-west or south direction are best suitable. Prayer hall in the school must be built in north-east portion to get maximum benefits and better concentration.
