Cinema & Studio
A building, whether it be a residential house or a industrial
concern, it should be constructed obeying all the principles and
rules given in Vaastu Shastra. Five rules have been incorporated
in them on the basis of the great Indian saints. By establishing
them in proper place as directed by Vaastu Shastra accidents and
loss of property and persons can be avoided. It is the moral duty
of human beings to work cautiously and carefully and mould the
actions and behaviour in accordance with the set norms so that
there may not arise any sort of difficulty in his works or
constructions ever in future; and he may lead a peaceful and
happy life following the customs and traditions of the society
and norms set in the culture. Enjoying the bliss of healthy long
life with family, he may find out the ways and means of getting
rid of all troubles and losses. This is possible only on the
basis of knowledge and knowledge requires experience. Too
incorporate the deeds and experiences of the forefathers or of
our own in current situations in life, so as to enjoy the worldly
pleasures is what we call experience. Happiness can be enjoyed
for whole of the life.
Therefore, no worldly troubles and disturbances come in way of
the construction of any kind made in conformity with the
principles and norms of Vaastu Shastra. Diving troubles can also
be avoided or removed by performing certain rituals according to
one's own belief and religion; and mental peace and self
satisfaction can be achieved.

starting any construction work.
The progress of any construction work is hindered or slowed
down only if it is not in accordance with the procedure given in
Shastras, where the good or evil effects of all the steps right

without caring much of the Vaastu-Gyan. Such halls remain
incomplete and inspite of several efforts it can not be completed
successful; even if these are completed some how, they do not run
profitabily. Many Cinema halls have either been closed or these
are being converted into a commercial complex or residential
flats. If we go deep into the cause behind it, we find either the
site was not selected according to the norms or foundation or was
not laid in auspicious moment, or there had been some default as
