The main door is the passage which creates life in a home. One should pay great attention to the main door and the main windows as per the vastu shastra.
There are various aspects like the placement of the main door, the placement of the main windows, the direction of the main door and so on. A person enters the home through the main door and hence the main door should produce positive energy each time a person walks in. This positive energy from the main door is correlated to the entire portion of the home. An entrance door should be positioned in a way where it can activate the most beneficial energy. Following are some tips which can help you position your main entrance door as per vastu shashtra.
Choose an auspicious day:
One can place the main door on a fixed auspicious day after performing a vastu puja. The location of the main door plays an important role as you need to figure out on which place can be apt to place the main door. You can do this by standing in front of your home and imaginarily dividing your home into two parts where the door can be placed towards the center. It can be either in the left or the right half based on the direction of the door.
Door position according to the directions;
The door should be in the left half when facing the house. Avoid placing the door in the right half (North-West). Placing the door in this direction will allow ample amount of sunlight throughout the day. The door should be placed in the center of the wall and the windows should be kept in the North-East. Avoid placing the door near the corner of the walls.
The door can be placed in the left half, facing the house. Avoid positioning the door in the right half of the house as more windows are supposed to be positioned here for a constant sunlight throughout the day. Avoid the opening in the south west direction. If you have a door in the west ensure that you have a parallel door in the east which can allow maximum useful UV rays.
A door positioned in the south shouldn’t be placed in the center of the building and should be placed in the right half of the home. Avoid placing the main door in the south-west direction as this might harm you with the hot infrared rays.
The door can be placed in the right half facing towards the north east direction. Avoid positioning the door in the south east direction. The door should be placed in the center of the wall and the windows should be placed in the north-east direction.
Always remember that you do not place your main door to the opposite home as it will be quite uncomfortable when both the doors are open which can ultimately result in a peek of both the homes.
Do not have the main door facing an abandoned and deserted building:
Avoid placing your main door towards a deserted and a rundown building as this can create negative vibes and you will have a scary and cold sight every time you open the door.
Have the entrance gate and the entrance door on the same side:
Always have the entrance gate and your entrance door on the same side as the vastu principles do not consider it auspicious to have the entrance gate and the entrance door on the opposite direction. Also it is considered as an inconvenience to the guests.
Do not have an underground tank, septic tank under the main entrance door:
This is because if the tank has to be opened and cleaned, it will be very inconvenient if it has to be done right in front of the main door.
It is advisable that you do not have the main entrance door in the corners of the home as this can result in a difficulty while placing furniture at home. Corners in a home should be left vacant for movement.
Do not have a wall in front of the entrance door:
Do not have a wall directly in front of the entrance door and instead have a door which opens in the next room. Doing this will allow the fresh air inside the home making it well ventilated.
Have an entrance and an exit door:
The vastu principles suggest that there should be two doors; one for entry and another one for exit. The exit door should be smaller than the entrance door. This will let the fresh air enter in the home.
Points to be remembered:
- Have the main entrance door as the largest door in your home.
- The main door should be opened inside and should be clockwise.
- Do not have self-closing doors.
- The main door should have a threshold.
- Do not have creaking doors.
