Tips on Indian feng shui draw in the crowd at property fair

The second day of talks at the Star Property Fair 2009 proved a hit with the crowds, with author and Sunday Star columnist T. Selva’s talk on ‘Indian Feng Shui – Vasthu Sastra’ filling the function room to the brim.

Vasthu Sastra, Selva explained, was the ancient Indian art of placement and science of construction, architecture and dwellings to create a harmonious flow of energy within a particular space to promote the well-being of occupants.

During the talk, he briefed attendees on vital aspects to consider when buying or renting a property, such as the direction the house is facing, internal arrangements, locations and plot shapes.

“One should try to choose a house which incorporates the various principles of Vasthu Sastra as much as possible. The science is based on the elements of ether, fire, water, earth and air —all of which must be present in the house in harmony,” Selva said.

He explained that the northeastern quadrant was suitable for water elements, thus if one wishes to place a fountain or pool, this would be the ideal location.

“The southeast is in tandem with the fire element, making it the preferred location for kitchens.

“The earth element is prominent in the southwest, and bedrooms or storerooms should be placed here.

“When choosing a house, one should identify the direction of the main door, kitchen, master bedroom, children’s bedroom and bathroom.

“For the main door, the auspicious directions in order of preference are northeast, east, north, northwest, southeast, west and south.

“One should avoid southwest facing houses at all costs, as it is very inauspicious,” Selva said.

In interiors, he advised people to avoid dark colours on walls, and instead opt for soft, cooling colours as the home is supposed to be a place for comfort and relaxation.

In another talk, EON Bank branch managers Chiang Yuan Tyng (Bayan Baru) and Khor Chong Eya (Bukit Mertajam) spoke on ‘Creating Wealth for Generations to Come’.

They highlighted the bank’s financing packages which could potentially save one thousands of ringgit on interest fees. Their affordable repayment schemes offer longer periods of up to 30 years with financing available up to 90% or 95% for selected projects.
