Vastudosha is a flaw or deficiency in the known characteristics of the eight directions. Remedial Vastu or corrective measures for any Vastu faults should be attempted only after a proper understanding of the fundamental rules of Vastu Shastra. The remedial measures can be divided into those applying to different stages of construction and can be implemented at either pre-construction stage or at post-construction stage.
At the pre-construction stage, the measures can be to rectify inauspicious shapes, slopes and depressions in the plot, observing proper pre-construction rituals, overcoming obstructions faced before construction or while construction.
Care should be taken and expert advice sought before purchasing a plot of land, a house, a building or an office space. Careful selection at this stage has long lasting benefits.
Strictly followed, Vastu Shastra forbids demolitions/ alterations or structural changes once the construction of a house is complete, deeming them to be a mutilation. At the post-construction stage, the corrective measures can be in the form of building additional structures, increasing the height of the building in relevant sectors, relocating the main entrance, etc. to balance the flow of energies in and around a structure. The measures at this stage also involve tackling obstructions and vedhas to the main entrance, interior planning and proper distribution of elements in the interiors.
Ideally, the best time for vastu advice is before a person starts building a house. That way his architect can incorporate Vastu advice into the design of fue house. Unfortunately, most people don't do this. And they wake up years later wondering why their new house didn't give them the happiness they sought. In many cases, I find people's problems self-generated. They may be rich, living in a big house, but peace, happiness and good health elude them . The house they live in may be big, opulent and full of expensive things, but the usage is improper.
At times a change in fortunes happens when people carry out changes, renovations and extensions in the existing house or buy additional land adjacent to their property. Depending on the direction in which extensions are carried out the change can be for the better or for worse. As a rule, all extensions towards south, south-west, west, south-east or north-west of your site are considered inauspicious. Buy any additional land, which is to your north, east, or north east.
Physical inspection of site and identifying the directions accurately is very important. It is not possible to depict all the details required for an accurate diagnosis on a drawing alone
