GREEN RULES- Importance of trees and plants in vaastu
Vaastu tenets prohibits many big trees in certain direction from where they only shower misfortune on human and buildings. Simlarly there are many trees which are auspicious in certain directions.
For any house, it is auspicious to have a awla tree in North-East, anaar in North-West, banyan in the east, goolar in the south, peepal in the west and paakar in the north. But they should be at sufficient distance from the house.
Vastu prohibits peepal in the east, banyan in the west, goolar in the north and paakar in the south as they silently hamper the peace in human. But many trees like neem, mango and anaar provide good results in all directions.
The fact is that vastu does not recommend any big tree near the main building of the house as they slowly destroy the foundations and create subtle restlessness in the
environment. Big trees create a serious vaastu dosh if their shadow fall on the house. Vastu recommends tall trees with big spread and thick green leaves in the south, west or south-west
corner of palaces, big houses, colonies and farm houses to enhance their retention power for positive urja. They should never be located in the North-East sector ( except awla) , where they obstruct the free flow of jaivik, pranic and positive energy from the nature.
Except rose and a few medicinal ones, all thorny plants give rise to tensions in the environment. Cactus is the worst.
Plants exuding white sap should also be kept off. Lime and karonda etc. are OK in an orchard but not in residence or business premises.
Growing creepers/climbers with support on the compound wall or a house wall is best avoided.
According to Vaastu, one of the most powerful and auspicious plants is the tulsi or basil plant. This shrub, which has great medicinal value, can purify the atmosphere and keep mosquitoes away. Tulsi can be grown at the front or the back of the house, in galleries, windows – in all places where it can be exposed regularly to sunlight. While growing it in the garden, place Tulsi plant in the north-east
