Home Sutra: How To Correct Defects In The Centre Of Your House
The centre of a property, known as the Brahmasthan in Vastu, is an important zone. All the directions meet at this point and energies are dispersed all around from here. This area is regarded as sacred as the Ishanya or the northeast corner. Ideally, the Brahmasthan must be used as an open space or a hall with minimum construction so that energies do not get blocked. This is the reason why many ancient Indian homes had vast open-to-sky courtyards in the Brahmasthan.
A Brahmasthan designed with elements not compliant with Vastu principles can have adverse effects on one's life. Staircases built in centre of the house, for instance, will invite financial problems for the family. Similarly, a kitchen or a bedroom in this area can lead to health issues.
Here are some easy tips to deal with defects arising out of the centre of the home:
*Place a crystal lotus or a copper pyramid in the centre of the house to remove any Vastu-related defects.
*A Tulsi plant can be placed in the Brahmasthan to spread positive energies.
*Pillars in the centre of the house is a major Vastu defect. Avoid constructing them. If they already exist, cover them with fresh plants or mirrors.
*Similarly, covered arches and overhead beams in the centre of the house should be concealed using false ceilings.
*If the centre of the house is used as a hall, keep wooden furniture. Do not keep any machine or electrical items.
