The South-east direction is owned by Agni, the Lord of fire. The sun, as we all know, is the harshest when it reaches this direction and hence this area of a house is always attributed to fire-related devices. The ruling planet is Shukra (Venus) Being a highly sensitive direction, great care should be taken while handling this direction, especially while striking a balance with the opponents of Fire viz. the element of Water and Air. Properties facing this direction are considered average because this direction should be allocated to the kitchen, being the place of ‘agni’ but if there is no kitchen in South-east then it should be free from any other construction such as living room for couple or any other such area.
A kitchen in the south-east is a wonderful idea as this direction is owned by the Agnidev. All food cooked here is believed to be blessed by the deity and hence is supposed to bring about health and prosperity for it members.
A bedroom in this direction can prove to be disastrous as it may cause serious behavioral problems for its occupants. The ultra-violet rays of the sun get accumulated in this direction throughout the day thereby causing strained marital relations, even leading to divorce in many cases.
Problems relating to electricity and electronic equipments would be given an open invitation if an overhead water tank is placed in this portion of the house. Similar is the case with underground water tanks as it would cause unrest and clashes among the family members, friends and relatives. It may even give rise to legal and administrative issues.
Fire-related accidents are expected if there happens to be a water slope or a swimming pool heading towards the south-east of a plot. Fire and water being contrasting elements cannot be placed on a common platform ever.
One should never make a Puja room, study room or store important files and valuables in this corner of the house. The heated up environment of this direction would destroy everything stored here.
The main entrance of a house should never be in the South-east as it would create legal problems for its occupants.
Losses in business organizations are incurred if a mirror is placed on the south-east walls?
No washing machine
No underground and overhead water tank.
Fire is an essential essence of our life and hence fire-attributed direction, South-east, should be absolutely Vastu compliant.
Only fire or heat related objects can be easily incorporated in this direction like boilers, transformers and so on
Any kind of extension in this part should be avoided as this would bring in bad luck, misfortune and loss of health. It even causes heavy debts. Insomnia, loss of wealth etc.
A worship place or a bedroom should never be placed here and this direction should be teamed with heavy material
A septic tank or drainage should be avoided too as it welcomes theft, fire accidents and other issues.
This direction should never be alloted to marriageable boys as this may delay their marriage prospects.
The women occupants of the house suffer the most if this direction is not used as per Vastu principles
In my 24 years of experience as a Vastu professional what I have always seen is that when we talk about the South-east plots it should be utilised with great efficiency in order to attain a steady, progressive and peaceful life and there should be no bedroom or Pooja room in this direction at any cost. If you are careful about these basic Vastu rules relating to the South-east nothing can ever go wrong and you would only attain success and prosperity in life.
Last, but definitely not the least, I have always advised all my disciples to simply follow the Live Vastu principles which I have formulated in order to get rid of all their woes and tensions in life the Vastu way.
