East Directions


A very powerful direction. The direction is owned by Lord INDRA, the Hindu deity responsible for rains, overall prosperity, festivity and power. Indra is very powerful in manipulation. East is the governing direction of solar deity - Lord Sun which itself is a big power that nobody can match. It is the most significant direction cosmology from where all positive energy springs to brighten the earth surroundings.

According to Vastu Shastra there are four cardinal directions recognized as a square and all the four directions have a conjunction point. East is the foremost direction in Vastu which is the place of all auspicious energies, that is why East facing plots are recommended as dwelling place. Therefore this area should ideally be left open with more space for sunlight and Vastu suggests having entrance door in East only.

Sun gives growth to life, vegetation etc. So you can call east as direction for growth. After the north, east should be very much open, light & clean. Making heavy walls, not providing the ventilation, doors & windows gives stagnation in life. Making a staircase, accommodating a toilet or a store in the eastern direction is a big Vastu offence. Just mind a punch line obstruction in east can create an obstruction in your life. 

The auspiciousness of East direction is recognized to bring good luck, peace, prosperity, harmony and health by effectively using the space with Vastu norms.
