One must be borne in mind that the premises should be either square or rectangle in shape and any oddly shaped shop premises must be avoided
Many a time it has been noticed that there are several shops or business enterprises at one place conducting the same type of business and yet, a few of them do very well and others run in losses. The reasons for such a flourishing outcome can be many. It can be due to the hard work of the owner, the way he treats his customers and the goodwill, or it could simply mean that the location of the shop, business is in the right direction and the Vastu principles favour the positive side of the upward trend of business growth and success. Hence, besides the hard work and the goodwill, Vastu also plays a very significant role in bringing immense sunshine of growth and prosperity in business.
It is advisable to buy a shop or any business place which exemplifies the positive principles of Vastushastra. In this regard, it must be borne in mind that the premises should be either square or rectangle in shape. Any oddly shaped shop premises must be avoided before buying or taking on rent. At the same time, a lion-faced premise which is also called Shermukhi (wide in the front and narrow at the back) is considered positive and auspicious for business. Such a shaped premise enhances the fast growth of the business. But here there is a catch. The wide and broad portion of the premises must be in the North, North-East or East direction only. In any other direction, it is considered inauspicious.
The entrance of the shop or the business premises should be in the auspicious direction such as North, North-East, East, South of South-East and North or North-West. These directions are considered very auspicious for all types of businesses. Besides these directions, there are still some businesses for which other directions can also be positive. For example, for a bar or a bar and restaurant or a wine store, the West direction is considered auspicious as the Sun sets in the West and such businesses are meant to flourish only after the sunset. Any business dealing in ladies’ garments, ladies parlour or ladies jewellery, South-East or South direction is considered auspicious.
The placement of the items and materials inside the shop and all other important aspects must be done based on the five elements of nature as well as by considering the positive and the auspicious nature of all the eight directions. It is advisable to consult a Vastu expert before buying or taking on rent a shop for business and setting it for its growth and success.
