Adding a green element to home, not only enhances the beauty but even brings peace and cleanses the air. This is the significant role that green plants and trees play in case they are planted in homes. However, Astrologer Guru Master Deepak Ji suggests that if these plants and trees are chosen and planted as per the principles of Vastu Shastra, they can impart a more positive impact on the people of the house.
Jyotish Guru Master Deepak Ji further explains that in accordance with Vastu Shastra, it is not auspicious to grow thorny and milking plants in the house. The basis of prohibiting certain plants and trees is linked with science and mythology. e.g. it is highly recommended that Peepal tree and Banyan tree are planted near or in the temple and not at home.
In order to attain maximum benefits of plants that are auspicious for homes, Master Deepak Ji emphasises that one should always plant them in the direction that is in compliance with Vastu. Plants and trees have a major role to play in bringing about positive energy in homes and surroundings. It is the plants that human life is dependent upon, as they emit oxygen which is essential for human life to sustain on Earth. However, as per Vastu, certain plants are believed to impart a negative impact on human life. To attain the maximum benefits from nature surrounding us, an individual must grow certain plants and/or trees in house.
Listed are a few specific plants that Master Deepak Ji believe should be planted in the house as per Vastu Shastra:
Holy Basil or ‘Tulsi’ (Ocimum sanctum) is considered as a highly auspicious plant with respect to Vastu. It is recommended to plant Tulsi in the North, East or North-East direction. It is strictly advised that women during their menstrual cycle should not come near Tulsi, as it emits negative effect on the plant.
Lucky Bamboo (Dracaena braunii) symbolizes peace and good fortune. It is suggested to bring forth wealth and popularity. However, this differs from the common bamboo plant (Bambusa vulgaris). An individual should avoid planting dwarf potted bamboo (Bonsai) as it doesn’t go in favor of the nature. While choosing the bamboo, look for a yellow colored bark instead of dark colored ones.
