The effects of street focus in Vaastu ?
In Vaastu,any street
focus on a plot actually disturbs the bio-electric magnetic field in and around the plot to a great extent
either by amplifying the imbalance in energy dynamics or by attenuating the positive energies.
The street that runs and focuses on to any side of a plot is called a 'spearing street'. This is also referred to
as 'therukuthu' in Southern states and 'veedhi shula' in the Northern states. People are generally
scared of this particular phenomenon.
The figure shown gives eight directions of street/road focuses on a
plot. All the different types of street focus or 'spearing streets' do not necessarily render bad effects as
generally believed. Out of 12 possible street focuses on a plot, four street focuses on the central portion of
any side of a plot are neutral, four are harmful and four are good.
The 'veedhi shula' or street focus, is perhaps,
the most powerful of all Vaastu parameters, especially in fortifying the good/bad powers of Vaastu. Several case studies
reveal that in both the good and bad 'veedhi shulas', the Vaastu effects are excessively pronounced. Some of the Vaastu
Properties of different street focuses are summarised in the following table:
Therefore while selecting the plot, one should consider carefully, the magnetic directions in which a road, lane or
street is focused on to the plot. As can be understood from the table, one can choose plots which have the following
a) North of Northeast...Most preferred
b) East of Northeast ...Most preferred
c) South of Southeast...Preferred
d) West of Northwest ...Preferred
In 'veedhi shulas' we have considered only single approach roads. But practically, we may have plots with streets or
roads on two sides, three sides or all four sides. In Vaastu, plots with adjacent roads in the North and West sides
promote the owner's prosperity.
A site with roads on three sides is preferred and has some unique advantages, while
a plot with roads on all four sides, is considered to be the most auspicious. The Vaastu effects for various locations
of roads in different directions adjacent to a plot are tabulated below:
