When it comes to purchasing property or building one, most people consider that north facing house are auspicious. However, that’s an awful half-truth. In Vastu Shastra, no direction is bad and also no direction is completely auspicious. There is a variety of rules related to every single direction that need to be carefully followed in order to harness the positive energies emanating from the cardinal directions and thwart the negative vibes.
Direction of a property towards any particular face cannot be guaranteed auspicious or inauspicious unless one pays special attention to the placement of the main door or entrance and the rest of the property.
