Vastu Shastra can help you earn wealth

This is a myth. Vastu Shastra is focused on your well-being and creating a positive mindset and good health. Once you are healthy both physically and mentally, you are equipped to earn wealth.

The entry door of the house can be placed in any direction

There are a total 32 Padas for entry based on which it is determined which particular entry is effective for a building. Out of 32 Entries or Pada, only 10 Entries are positive, and the remaining need to be treated after matching their respective symptoms.

Toilet seats can be placed anywhere in the building.

Toilet seats should not be placed preferably in ESE (East South East) , SSW (South South West), or WNW (West North West). If the toilet seat is placed in any other direction, then based on the symptoms, it should be treated using respective colour tapes/metal strips. Only when a toilet seat falls in North East, it has to be shifted to some other zone as the remedies do not give satisfactory results in North East

Kitchen can only be placed in South East (Agni Kon)

It is ideal to place the kitchen in Fire Zone of the building i.e. South East, South, South-South East. However, if the kitchen is placed in other zones, it can be treated using different colour marbles/colour mats. Kitchen is strictly prohibited to be made in North-East Zone of a building. If the kitchen falls in this zone, it is usually recommended to be relocated to another favourable zone.
