North Directions

North is the most prominent cardinal direction in Vastu Shastra and is recognized as favorable after East because both the directions have implicitly linked with divine energy. North is opposite direction of South and seems perpendicular to East and West.

The significance of North in Vastu is due to its holiness where all positive energies reign and surrounds that is why Northern sides of home or factory are recommended to be left open. According to Vastu, the more the open space in North and North-east, the more the presence of riches and harmony in a living place. The planet for this direction is Budha (Mercury).


 North is a very good direction. The owner of this direction is KUBER (God of wealth & prosperity). This direction is called wealth and career direction. The Vastu Purush's chest & breast area occupies the north direction. This direction should always be more open, beautiful, light & less burdened due to the body parts of Vastu Purush.
