DIRECTION OF THE PLOT
ENVIRONMENT OR SURROUNDINGS OF THE PLOT
This is also very important. If the surroundings are not good, we suffer in many ways.
OBSTRUCTION IN FRONT OF MAIN GATE OF PLOT
If the types of obstructions listed below exist facing the main gate of the plot, various problems may arise as per ‘BRAHU SANHITHA’.
SORROUNDINGS AND NEIGHBORS
The surroundings of our neighboring houses on all sides also affect us.
CHECKING UP MATERIALS/SOIL TYPE
That comes up while doing excavation for construction. Different types of soils have different effects on the inhabitants.
GETTING RID OF ‘SHALYA DOSH’ (Soil Deficiency)
If the soil is found defective, it must be purified or cleansed before starting any construction in the plot. ‘Shastras’ have laid many ways for getting rid of ‘SHALYA DOSH’.
SIZE AND SHAPE OF THE PLOT
Bigger the size, better it is. Plots are of different shapes and sizes and they affect the inmates in different ways, for example:
PROJECTIONS, RETRACTIONS AND CLOSING OF CORNERS
Plots are always not available in the shape of perfect square, rectangular or quadrangle. Projections means an additional space which when subtracted from the plot, makes it a regular square or rectangle. While retraction means an additional space which when added to the plot, makes it a regular square or rectangle.
