VASTU TIPS FOR AN APARTMENT/FLAT:
Today almost every other person is under tremendous stress, be it money, health, relationships or career and all these can be at risk due to incorrect Vastu placements.
Buying land and building a house of your own seems to be a far fetched idea for the people these days. Hence switching to an apartment seems to be more convenient for most. But does Vastu apply to the apartments as the residence may not be exactly on the ground and secondly it’s a space shared by many families?
In a flat, the Vastu Shastra provides an ancient resolution to the sacred architectural system by incorporating certain guidelines regarding the layout, geometry, measurement and design of the flats and apartments. The principles of Vastu are applicable to apartments, flats as well as bungalows, offices, factories and temples.
