Types of Vastu Defects and Their Effects
The cases which follow in this website are based on the actual case studies undertaken by me. However, I would like to caution the reader not to come to any hasty conclusion regarding the rectification required in their houses even if such defects as mentioned do exist.
I have only underlined the primary factors but have omitted mentioning the secondary and contributory factors which (in the absence of compensating factors) have given the effects mentioned. Therefore these cases are to be treated as extreme ones. There is no need for you to get scarer! even if some defects exist. Do not undertake the corrections yourself based on the information contained in this website. Contact me for any help needed in correction.
Every structure is different no mailer how alike they look. Only an expert in Vaastu can determine the points and extent of correction which should be economical, structurally possible and suited to meet the requirements of the inmates concerned.
The page is mainly intended for the builders, architects and those who wish to take up the construction of their houses on their own so that they avoid the primary defects.
The correction of existing structures should necessarily be left to the discretion of the Vaastu expert. It should be noted that demolition at certain points can result in a sudden increase of negative forces which are life threatening and dangerous to the inmates. For obvious reasons, the method of correction is left out in this page. If you suspect the premises is defective, send the plan to me for comments.
The defects can be classified as under:
- Primary Defects
- Secondary Defects
- Contributory Defects
- Compensating factors.
- Let us understand more about these three types of defects.
A primary defect directly relates to the problem experienced in the house. It is the strongest factor that will be responsible for the manifestation.
Secondary defects are those which lie in the opposite sector and which are making the primary defect more powerful. For example, if a primary defect exists in the Northeast sector then check for the secondary defect in the Southwest sector. A primary factor alone takes a considerable manifestation time if no secondary factor exists.
Contributory defects are those which have a bearing on the effect and hasten manifestation.
Let us say for example, that a row of toilets exist in the Northeast sector of an industry.
The primary defect here is the row of toilets that exist in the Northeast sector of the industry.
Check the sensitivity factor by determining the point of sensitivity in the sector where the defect has come.
Now check the Southwest sector for depressions, water bodies etc. which will be working to enhance the effect due to the primary cause. The contributory factors are the levels in North and South, layout of machines, heating equipment placements etc.
For example, if a sump exists in Northeast and thereafter Kitchen comes in Northeast sector, the effect will be far milder than a house where the same defect exists without the sump. Here the sump compensates to a certain extent the defect.
The following are some examples. Here only Primary defects are underlined. The reader should note that there were secondary and contributory factors as well and no compensating factors in these cases. Hence, these cases are to be considered as extreme cases. The idea of giving the effect is to help the reader to check the primary factor. If a defect exists which relates to your problem, contact me by sending a detailed plan, with nature of problems.
Note: Defects generalized to include industries, business houses, etc.

To arrive at conclusions:
Once again I wish to stress that it is wrong to arrive at a conclusion based upon a single defect. The sum total of all the merits and defects have to be worked out. The defects themselves have to be classified as major, intermediate and ·minor. For example, the position of attics in North or East alone cannot make a house give negative results.
The best way therefore is to adopt a scoring method depending on the severity and nature of the defect.
Just because the defect exists in your house, don’t rush for correction consult a reputed vastu consultant who can analyze the defect more properly and advice you whether a correction is really called for.
The same applies to other buildings like factories, Nursing homes, hotels, business premises etc.
