26 Tips for Vastu Compliant Study Room

One of the most vital characteristics – or blessing, I must say – which distinguishes humans from other species on this planet is the process of learning. You know, the process of learning – or gaining knowledge – takes place via different methods, such as, reading or studying, observing, doing, hearing and many other physical and even spiritual means. For the scope of this article, I would like you to concentrate on the first – and most commonly followed – method of learning i.e. “Studying”. Studying needs a lot of attention, concentration and focus; also, this method of learning needs – or demands – a place where one sits with a calm, composed and open mind – a place where the grasping power of mind is increased; a place which increases retention power of brain; a place where one is comfortable and can study undisturbed; This place is what you call a “Study Room”.

Here, I assume that you are already aware of vastu shastra. If you are not, then I suggest you to read the article which reveals to you the working knowledge – science – of vastu shastra.

You have a dedicated place – or room – for each and every activity that your perform in your home, in the same manner you must have a study room where you – or your children – can concentrate on gaining knowledge. To put icing on the cake, make sure that the study room in your home is vastu compliant so that while studying, the concentration and focus are sharpened and the process of gaining – and even retaining – the knowledge becomes easy.

Study Room Vastu Tips

How Can You Achieve a Vastu Compliant Study Room?

The process to make a study room a vastu compliant one is a two step – but very easy – process. The first step to make your study room vastu compliant is to locate it as per rules and guidelines of vastu shastra.

To help you on this – first step – I have created an image which reveals to you the best location to make a study room.

Have a look at it.

Study Room Vastu ShastraTips

Having seen the image, I assume that you now understand that the best location to make a study room is the west portion of your home. However – due to any reason – if the west portion of the home is unavailable then you can make the study room in north-east corner or east part of home.

The second – and the final – step that you need to take to make your study room a vastu compliant one is to read and apply vastu tips and guidelines.

  • Hi Jasveer,

    North is the direction of Kuber and mainly related with money and wealth; East is the direction of Sun and related with name, fame, concentration and knowledge.

    Hence facing East while studying is better and working while facing North is more beneficial.

    Thanks,

    Hi SimplyVege,

    You must never sleep with your head towards the footboard side of the bed and try to keep the head in South, West or SW.

    The toilet is ok.
    Since this is a diagonal house, I am attaching an image of diagonal house. Hope it helps you.

    Thanks,

    Hi SimplyVege,

    I can see that there’s a mirrored wardrobe exactly in front of the bed in master bedroom. Is any part of the body reflected in the mirror while lying on the bed?

    Thanks,
    Admin

    • SimplyVege

      Thanks for your response. And, yes these are full length mirrors from celling to the floor (covering the built in wardrobe that cannot be moved) all across the wall of the room. So the entire wall in front of the bed is mirrored.The body is completely reflected in the mirror at all times – day and night – sleeping, standing and sitting.
      Is the bed positioned correctly? To avoid sleeping with head towards north, we have recently started to sleep with the head towards the foot board of the bed. The WC faces north east – I guess that too is incorrect?
      Your response is much appreciated.

      • VastuShastraAdmin

        Hi SimplyVege,

        So that’s where the problem is.. As per vastu shastra, if, while sleeping or lying on bed, any of the body part is reflected in a mirror then the same body part will develop medical issues.

        More on this @ http://www.vastushastraguru.com/mirrors-vastu-shastra-tips/

        As a remedy, either cover the mirrors or create a partition between bed and wardrobe in such a way that none of the body part is visible in the mirror while sleeping or lying on bed.

        Thanks,

    Hi,

    I have uploaded a picture of my study room can you please have a look.

    Does my room need any adjustment?

    My study table is 32 by 32 inch but its made out of wood and metal. I have read as per vastu that the best material is wood. Is this true?

    Thanks,
    Jasveer

    • VastuShastraAdmin

      Hi Jasveer,

      Your room looks good to me. You can face East while studying.

      Yes, it’s true that the best material is wood.

    Hi Naman Das,

    SE corner is ruled by fire element (aka “Agni” corner) and in known to bring illness to the inmates. Since the entrance (in your case) is from East of SE, the illness will not be major; for example, if someone has high blood pressure (BP) then with East of SE entrance the BP will be somewhat 110-150; but in South of SE the BP can be 130-170 or even more.

    Keep your head in South or West while sleeping.
    Place the lamp towards the SE of the room. You can also place a water fountain in NE of room.

    Also, for doing experiments, if you can shift towards the SE side of the room, you’ll get micro efficiency. However, while thinking about the experiments NW is good.

    Feel free to ask further questions.

    Thanks,

    Hi David,

    Actually green color’s effect is soothing and cooling. Hence it has good effect on mind and that increases concentration.

    Thanks,

    Hi Geeta,

    The entrance from SW is not good. You can place a Panch Mukhi Hanuman Ji in standing position with gada in left hand (as if ready for a war) on the top of the door.

    Bed can be in West or South. If the bed is near SW corner of the it’ll give him more stability.

    He should face East while studying.

    Thanks,

    Hi Harjeet,

    That can happen and here’s what you can do.

    This exercise will take 7 weeks to complete.

    1st week:
    On Monday sleep with your head in W and rest 6 days with your head in E.

    2nd Week:
    On Monday & Tuesday sleep with your head in W and rest 5 days with your head in E.

    3rd Week:
    On Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday sleep with your head in W and rest 4 days with your head in E.

    and similarly for further weeks.

    Hello,

    I hope you can give me some advice, my study/bedroom is located in the north west.

    please see the picture ( its really amateurish sorry for that );

    1. my study table is located in the east wall, but there is a door close to it. Will that give any problems?

    2. when I’m studying, the book rack is a few inches behind me on the left side and has the exact same height as my study table, is this good? or should it be shorter?

    3. are there any examples of inspirational posters to put in front of my study table my major is law.

    4. while I am studying there is a window behind me, I have covered it with a green curtain, same colour as my room. is this ok?

    • VastuShastraAdmin

      Hi Harjeet,

      Everything looks good; just one advice, if you can shift the study table towards the center of the East wall (currently it’s at NE corner), it will be much better for your studies, name and fame.

      Thanks,
      Admin

      • Harjeet

        Thank you for your advice.

        My final question, I already have a table lamp on the SE of my study table. Can I also put a bright lamp in the SE corner of my room?

        • VastuShastraAdmin

          Hi Harjeet,

          Yes you can but that’s not necessary.

          Thanks,
          Admin

          • Harjeet

            My room is very dark, as I only have a table lamp. So that’s why I’ve asked. If there is a better place to put it kindly let me know.

          • VastuShastraAdmin

            Hi Harjeet,

            If that’s the case then it’s good to have a light source in the SE part.

            Thanks,
            Admin

          • Harjeet

            Thank you.

            Sir, I’m sleeping in the south west part of my room and last night I’ve noticed that whenever I sleep facing the west I have very violent (negative) dreams but when I face the East, everything is absolutely fine.
            Is this normal?

          • VastuShastraAdmin

            Hi Harjeet,

            Facing East means that your head is towards West and facing West means that your head is towards East.

            Am I correct? I am asking this to make sure that we both are understanding the same thing.

            Thanks,
            Admin
