How to find Brahm-Sthan

Brahm-sthan is an important and significant part of the plot which should be kept vacant and free from any construction. It is the main center of any plot from where Vastu directions are determined which makes it an extremely important point. According to Vastu this area of plot should be fixed for open space with no construction because Brahm-sthan is the root of energies that are dispersed to every corner and surrounding of the plot. So construction in the center of the plot means blocking the main energy that keeps a living place lively.

Brahm-sthan is considered as powerful & holy zone in the house represented which is as scared as Ishaan zone (North-east) that is why it is immensely important to keep center non-obstructive and tidy to better inflow of energies. Brahm-sthan or middle zone of the house should be kept free from things/objects, clean, and if the possible sky opens just like a courtyard or open balcony. An open courtyard or center brings all kinds of riches and prosperity to occupants if followed accordingly by Vastu.
