Very Crucial Question in Vastu:
UG Water in NE & OH Water in West... Why.. Is there any logic or just a superstition.
Why the same element like water is recommended in two opposite directions in Vastu Shastra i.e UG & OH...
Very simple-----. In Vastu Shastra, the guidelines for water storage varies depending on how exactly the water is being stored. One can build either underground or overhead water storage tank.
Underground water storage: The underground water storage e.g. well, hand-pump, boring, swimming pool etc. should always be in north, east or north east direction (make sure not to punch the diagonal line which we read about in level 1). There should never be any well or pit in south-east or north-west directions as it causes enmity, disputes, litigation and arguments in the family or a business set-up. The pit in south-west direction may cause serious impact on the life of chief of the family.
Overhead water storage: As opposed to underground water storage, west is considered to be the best direction for overhead water storage. The second best option is north-west. It can also be in between north and north-west directions as the last option. However, it should never be in east, north, north-east or south-east directions. Sometimes people place it in south-west assuming it will help increasing the weight factor; however, presence of water in south-west direction leads to negative impacts on the family members. Also, it is forbidden to put bed below any huge water storage tank in Vastu as it may cause uneasiness, disturbance in sound sleep and negative dreams. Below pictures show the available options for both the underground and overhead water storage tanks.
So we can see here how the placement and location of the water storage tank can have several impacts on family members. In addition, there are other reasons which justify the different locations for water storage tank as per Vastu.
The north-east corner should be less than south-west corner both in terms of height and weight. Therefore, underground water storage is appropriate in north-east whereas the overhead water storage in suitable in west portion of the house (not in extreme south-west corner as explained above) since north prefers water and west prefers height.
If we observe the usage of overhead versus underground water storage tanks, we would find that underground water storage is usually for longer term (no stagnant water though) as compared to overhead water storage. The overhead water storage is usually filled from underground storage and supposed to be utilized faster by the family members. As we have read in level 1 course, the north-east direction is preferred for underground water storage as morning sun rays kill bacteria and hence keep the water clean. On the contrary, if it gets built in south-west, the water might get rotten faster due to extreme changes in the temperature in this corner.
Also, having the underground water storage (pond, waterfall, swimming pool etc.) amplifies the effect of useful morning sun rays due to reflection which is good for family members. See more factorts in next update:
