The importance of a good plot can be compared to the value attached to a piece of cloth which we purchase for our self. In both instances, we check the quality, permanence, beauty and other features. The plot for a house or any other structure forms the most basic part of Vastu Shastra as a positive and auspicious plot can ensure overall prosperity. In my years of experience as a Vastu specialist, I have realized that the need and necessity of inspecting a plot before purchasing it cannot be underestimated at any cost. This point holds immense significance because once you purchase an unsuitable land, which does not comply with Vastu standards, and build a house there, it becomes extremely difficult to rectify these defects and escape from its ill effects.
According to Vastu Shastra, the goodness and virtue of a plot of a land can be checked in various ways. One such method is by going to the plot and taking ten deep breadths. If it emanates positive vibrations, you would feel happy and relaxed. Another method involves digging a 1.5 feet deep pit in the center of the plot. Fill this pit with water and wait for a few minutes. If the water level in the pit goes down by 60%, you should not purchase the plot. If the water level goes down by less than 50%, the plot is average but if the level of water remains the same or goes down only by around 10 percent, the plot is very good and powerful and is definitely worth purchasing. Even the texture of soil on the plot can determine the fertility and goodness of the plot. If the soil of the plot sticks to your hand on holding it tight, the land can be termed good.
