Selection of Land 7

Our culture considers the earth to be 'Mother Earth' and the land has a very close relationship with Vastu. The land has to be carefully selected before constructing a house or a building. One must have the knowledge about the auspicious and inauspicous types of land. We should know which type of land can lead us towards prosperity and happiness and which type of land should be avoided.

For residential purpose one should always select 'live' land. Land bearing healthy plants and trees is considered to be live land. Infertile barren land is called 'dead' land, which is avoidable. Cracked land with termite and bones should not be selected for house construction. According to 'Brihat Samhita' barren land destroys wealth and uneven land invites enemies. Hence just as clean and pure food fills our body and mind with vitality and happiness, similarly auspicious land fills our life with happiness and peace.

People living in such a house acquire name, fame and prosperity. The land which is the abode of a 'Nakul' or a mongoose is excellent for constructing a house. Such a house also is a bestower of name, fame and prosperity. Such land remains free from ghosts and evil spirits. The reason for this is the 'Nakul', who represents Sun. Sun and Rahu (evil spirits) are enemies. Nakul and snake are also enemies, so the snake cannot harm the people living the house. Land with a stable is also very good. House constructed on such a land gives freedom from disease, wealth and property. Horse is also a representative of Sun. Such land is particularly auspicious for people having Aries, Leo and Sagittarius rashis. Hindu religion considers land with a 'Goshala' to be
