Office Vastu is as important as air. Eye of the man is as important as life. Both of them must be healthy, in the same way it will not be enough if the residence alone is constructed according to vaastu. The office or shop , which is so important, should not only be scientifically suitable but also the furniture arrangements, the direction we have to face while sitting are equally important. What is wrong in the sitting posture, what if things are placed in any direction are questions posed in experienced people. We have to bypass them. If the office is east facing one should arrange flooring from west to east and from south to north. Office Boss has to sit leaning against southern south east wall without touching the wall on the east side or that direction. He should face north and keep the cash box or almirah on his left. If the boss is sitting east in the same direction, he has to keep cash box or almirah on the right side. There should be no peal on this side. Vastu for office ensures the smoothness of work in the office premises. Following Vaastu remedies for offices helps to make sure, that the employees will work efficiently and effectively, proving to be an asset for the company and not a liability. Vastu principles for offices, takes into consideration many factors like proper location of the office, office exteriors in terms of its slope, shape etc, direction in which different departments of the office and the reception are located, position of various electronic gadgets and many more. Some important points rather than vastu is a good looking decorated entrance brings a pleasant fragrance and another thing regarding soft music will attract more customers. Now a day’s so many banks and offices are following these techniques. Regarding Light it well and keep it free of clutter and useless furniture because a dirty, dark and congested entrance is bad for business. It will keep away customers, friends, profits and needed persons. A well placed aquarium or a fountain will have a soothing effect on the customers and guests. It is better to have a large main door rather than a restraining main door. A well finished old door looks mature and respectable, and indicates stability and promises better business. An old and shabby door which does not open freely, has a missing door knob should be repaired immediately. Hanging a wind chime in the entrance and installing a statue of Lord Ganesha promotes positive energy, reduces work related tension, helps to keep away obstacles and intruders, and customers who have visited once are likely to visit again. Creaking doors and windows should be strictly avoided. In observation if there are any, oil the hinges immediately.
Create a pleasing atmosphere in the Office. This is the primary condition. Use balanced lighting, fresh flowers, soothing Colours, aesthetic interior decoration, sound-absorbent flooring and piped music to create the desired atmosphere. Display your Company's products, their photographs, or brochures about your services in the lobby. The products or the literature should be well lit by focused lights. The customer must be attracted towards them as soon as he enters the reception area. Design the Reception in the North-Eastern direction. But earmark the actual North-Eastern corner of the office for the image of a deity, or if nothing else, then decorate it well with light and flowers. Avoid having rest rooms in Eshan corner of the office. This always proves disastrous results and blocks off growth and happiness in career and personal life. The office of the Chairman or the General Manager chamber can be located in South-West (Nairuthi) or Southern part of the Office. It is desirable that he should sit in the South-West corner of his office in such a way that he faces East. Usually place a heavy safe in the South-Western corner of the room of the boss, in which important documents, papers about Company's assets, files of important projects etc are to be stored. Embedding it in the wall is also a good idea. Similarly earmark a place in the North-West area of his room where files which need to be attended to by others are kept. The middle management cadre staff should be placed in North & East zones. Effort should be made to keep the Centre of the office clean. I usually cordon it off and place a floral motif on the floor, a piece of art, or the image of a deity to keep it tidy. Southeast is the corner for Fire, or appliances which generate heat. Earmark the South-Eastern or agneya area for placement of Generators, Inverters, Electric Meter, main Power Switch, Computer servers, even the office pantry. It is important to ensure that no one should be sitting directly under a beam. If it is so, then the work desk needs to be shifted. This also applies to computers and other office equipments. In like manner, there are specific directions for parking, toilets, warehouse, customer waiting area, stairs, elevators, external surroundings, direction of the main entrance of the building and so on.
Want to Shift your office to Other Place?
If you are planning to shift to a new premises then identify a good Vastu location where to shift. The energy of the new location should support the growth and financial success of your business. There are several cases where the business has not done well after shifting its premises. Offices should be designed keeping in mind the balance in the movement of work and the hierarchy of authority. If offices are not made according to these principles, the absence of balance would lead to loss in efficiency, and lack of control in running the organization. Start with noting the directions using a compass from the center of the office, and work out all the eight directions. Vaastu considers South to be the best direction. The ancient texts emphasize on the synergy between South direction and the tenth house of one's horoscope. Hence the managing director, chief executive or the officer in charge in their absence should occupy this direction. For better results they should face towards North but if not possible it could be east. If the subordinates are placed in the south and the officer in the Agni corner i.e. South East then they would soon witness ego clashes and the subordinate would be in a strong position to disobey his officer. The South East corner is meant for those who are indulged in research work or involved in innovative and pragmatic projects. Ideally, laboratories, computers or control panels should be located in this corner. A drawback of this corner is that it brings aggressiveness in the temperament, which is fatal not only for the subordinates but also for the organization. The public relation officers should never sit in this corner. Such officers should also not sit in basement or under beams. 'South-West' has not been given importance and was meant for weaponry. If the higher officials sit in Eshan i.e. North East it would not be as beneficial as it would leave the other more important Vaastu positions for the subordinates. Position facing north should be followed but if not possible, it can be east. Almirah and racks should be placed in Nairuthi i.e. south West. Heavy furniture and things should not be in north or Eshan. For the purpose of office it helps the office run smoothly. No permanent construction should be done in 'Brahmasthan', or the central point. It is often said that water should be in north-east direction but this rule is applicable only with underground water tanks. So, water can be kept as per convenience. The canteen or pantry, however, should be in the south-east direction. The sitting arrangement of the cashier should be aloof from other employees. His sitting arrangement should not be in south or south-west as this may make them lethargic and exhausted, creating problems for the employer. The best place for the cashier is north, which is also the abode of Kubera, the God of Wealth. Employees occupying the west corner of the office are often found more talkative and may leak the confidential matters. Instead, West direction is best for training purposes. The conference hall is best in the north-west direction. The flow of ideas is best in this corner. This corner is also suitable for waiting lounge. Employees with high temperament should be given north-east corner. Less talented people should initially be given west direction and then should be shifted to south-east direction. A pro vaastu door is very important for the growth of the office, with a limitation on the total number of doors. The higher officials should be in south, next to them in west and those related to reception or display activity should be in north-east.
