Vastu and Building Formulae
by Niranjan Babu Bangalore Bookmark and Share

There has been extensive boom in the construction of housing, industrial, commercial buildings in big cities . Because of the complexity in the architecture and construction methods, there has been lot of confusion about the proper application of Vastu Shastra based building formulae. Appropriate application of various Vastu based formulae is possible when one clearly understands the concepts and significations embedded in the Vastu based formulae.

I have indicated in my earlier articles and in books the importance of the building formulae referred to as Ayadi Shadvarga by the ancient masters of wisdom.

Ayadi is a group of six formulae Aya, Vyaya, Yoni, Rksha, Vara and Tithi that are used to determine the dimensional conformance of a building. The six formulae are divided in to three sets and each set consists of two formulae. A specific set of formulae is used to work out the length, breadth and height of the building or the structure. The length and breadth are the outer measurements of the foundation (bhumilamba) or its base (adhistana). The height of the building is considered to be from the bottom of the foundation or the bottom of the base to the topmost point of the building. The remainder obtained by using these formulae determines the gain or loss accruing, the constellation compatibility and the lunar and solar days that conduce to one's well being.

Vastu Shastra clearly emphasizes the importance of orienting the constructions to the cardinal directional. Therefore, the orientation of the building to be one of the four cardinal directions (north, east, south or west). As far as possible, buildings facing angular directions are to be avoided. But in rare situations, if the site is oriented in the angular directions, the orientation (or Yoni) formulae can be worked out in such a way so that the remainder is 1. The ancient masters were aware of the power of monsoon winds and other energies (physical and metaphysical). These energies were also considered in the orientation and construction of the buildings.

The unit of measurement used is generally the Kisku Hasta that equals 24 angulas. The hasta conversion is done diversely in different regions. One school of thought equates a hasta to two feet and nine inches and an angula to 1 3/8th inch. Another school of thought equates a hasta to 72 cm (28.3 inches) and an angula to 3 cm (1.2 inches). Here, the hasta is measured from the shoulder to the tip of the middle finger.

A third school of thought, which this writer follows, equates a hasta to 18 inches (and an angula to 0.75 inches) Here, hasta is the length of the arm from the bottom of the elbow to the tip of the middle finger. The Ayadi Shadvarga is calculating by taking any of the standardized hasta measurements or using the actual hasta length of either the master, his/her spouse, eldest son or the architect (or contractor) designing the house.

Further research on the definition or usage of the Hasta measurement is needed to specifically determine whether 18 inches, 2.75 feet, 72 cm or the actual arm length from the elbow (or the shoulder) to the tip of the middle finger is appropriate. This scribe generally uses the 18-inch Hasta, based on measuring the distance from the elbow to the tip of the middle finger.

Manasara recommends working out nine different lengths and breadths and five heights for a building. The Yoni formula defining the breadth measurement very clearly reinforces the importance of proper orientation. Most religious buildings, palaces, cities, villages and roads of ancient India and many other parts of the world faced the cardinal directions. In fact, the Giza and Great pyramids of Egypt are oriented to the north.

The table below summarizes the six formulae.



Remainder of

Length x 8




Remainder of

Breadth x 9


Rksha (Nakshatra)


Remainder of

Length x 8




Remainder of

Breadth x 3




Remainder of

Height x 9




Remainder of

Height x 9


Table 1

Vastu regulates the primary elements in an enclosure with reference to its length, breadth and height. By having the dimensions worked out using the Ayadi formulae, the residents can, to a certain extent, experience material and spiritual awareness. Living in such spaces can contribute harmony with the gross (sthoola) and subtle (sookshma) energies leading to both physical and metaphysical well being of the individual(s).

Aya, also known as aadhayam, means income and Vyaya means loss or expenditure. When these formulae are applied Aya should be greater than Vyaya (Ayam Adhikyam, Vyayam Hinam) in order that the dimensions worked out positively energizes the structure or building.

The Yoni and Rksha (Nakshatra) formulae are applied for finding the breadth of the building. The Yoni formula should be worked out to always get an odd remainder.

The1, 3, 5 and 7 remainders are referred to as Dhwaja, Simha, Vrshabha and Gaja indicating the directions East, South, West and North, respectively. Generally orientation to any direction can have the Dhwaja Yoni worked out.
The Yoni can be calculated, for sites not oriented to the cardinal directions, based on the following table.

Angular Orientation

Cardinal Direction



















Table 2

The Rksha (or Nakshatra) formula should be worked out such that the remainder indicates a constellation that is compatible to the master's (or spouse's) constellation.

The height of the building can be fixed based on the Vara and Tithi formulae. After calculating the negative or paisacha zones of the site, the proposed length of the available space is converted into hasta and then the formulae applied. An example, utilizing the various formulae, is given below:

Consider a site measuring 45 feet by 63 feet. We first find the paisacha or non-habitable area by dividing each side into nine parts. On the 63 feet side, the paisacha works out to 7 feet each on either side giving us 49 feet of Vastu approved land for construction. On the other side of 45 feet, the non-habitable area works out to 5 feet on either side and we have 35 feet of Vastu compatible land for construction.

The Ayadi table given in the end of the article is worked out equating a hasta to 1.5 feet or 18'. The formulae can be applied to both rooms (inner) and buildings (outer).

Let us now look at the Aya and Rksha (E and F) columns to arrive at the proper length. Aya for 49 feet works out to 9 and Rksha works out to 18 (Jyeshta). If we need a smaller measurement we can accordingly trace a dimension that gives higher figure of Aya and a compatible figure of Rksha.

Divide the 27 constellations into three sets of nine each and count the nakshatra obtained from your nakshatra. The count as per following table indicates the compatibility or otherwise.

Count from your nakshatra

Referred to as







Wealth and Prosperity



Danger, Loss, Accidents









Realization of Ambitions








Parama Mitra

Very Favorable

Table 3

Let us now arrive at the proper breadth dimension by referring to columns G and H. Locate the nearest measurement to 35 and check on its compatible Vyaya and Yoni. The table indicates dimensions 32.5 and 32.25 showing the Yoni as 1 and Vyaya as 5 & 4 respectively.

On similar lines the height of the building can also be identified from the table. Where normal foundation is used, the height from its base can be considered and for pillar foundation, the height from the bottom of its base over which the building is constructed can be considered. The height is with reference to the highest point of the building be it the overhead tank or the skylight of the building. The columns to be referred to are I and J.

The dimensions of length, breadth and height can be worked out for residential and business buildings, layouts, religious buildings, swimming pools and underground and overhead water tanks too.

It would be indeed be a contribution to the people if city developers and builders allot sites to the public with the dimensions worked out on at least three formulae, viz., Aya, Vyaya and Yoni.

Article Comment I sought the help of this chap that came with a hefty price tag. The money was paid in advance and I had no idea what I would get in return. The advice I got was sketchy at best and basically not useful. Every time you speak to this chap, he makes it look like he is a globe trotter with huge demand for his services. He gives this impression that he is a superior person and the advice is really on a take it or leave it basis. There was no professional courtesy or accountability to what essentially is a sale contract entered by him when he takes some one's money. He needs to remember that he is not giving any thing away free, and that what he is dishing out by the way of ayadi calculation is a formulae available on the net. People go to some one in the hope that they will add value by studying horoscopes properly and giving a usable solution. He can't do this.

I don't know how this guy sleeps at night being such a religious person with illustrious background. This is making most of B.V. Raman's name at best! Before paying him, make sure what he is going to provide in return. Ask for an invoice!

Article Comment i want to learn get directions on plan for design home ,exactly in measurement like from center at how much distance feet we get direction/subdirections,
Article Comment @Bhemappa: For smaller sites working out the six formulae will not be practical. We suggest that you keep the paisacha all around free - 1 foot 8 inches on either side of the width and 4 feet 6 inches on either side of the length. With the foundation length at 29 feet and the width at 12 feet 4 inches, the aya (gain) and yoni (orientation) work out fine.
@Praveen For flats it is necessary that you look into the ventilation from the north, east and south primarily, rather than just the main door (which most of the time is closed) and there is no ventilation on that side.

Article Comment Shri Niranjan Babu gave me dimensions for my house construction, I had already read his books and had some basic knowledge of AAYA computations, I brought an issue back to him in next vastu consultation that one of the 6 parameters NAKSHATRA is not compatible for both of us, he changed the dimensions again and then again this time it was compatible for me, but danger for my wife, when I asked him he had said it gives Sampath,i,e, wealth, I dared to question him how he calculated and obtained Sampath, he gave me a piece of paper and asked me to calculate, he too calculated along side, finally both of us got same results and same process of calculations. He agreed that it was calculated as danger, but, still did not tell how he wrongly predicted Sampath.

what if I were a common man with zero knowledge of Vastu and had listened to him simply ? what would have happened, I don't know.

This time, I took the matter in my hands and made new calculations with changed dimensions and got all 6 parameters as favourable for both me and my wife, i.e, the AYADI SHADVARGA parameters, when I wrote an email to him, he simply ignored me and continues to ignore me on phone and emails too.

During the meetings he was telling if we follow two vastu parameters it is more than enough, I was shocked, this is the least I can expect from a vastu consultant.

Basically, he did not do a good job of giving good calculations, please, hence, read his book and do your own calculations, in the best interest of my fellow Indians I am writing this comment.

Any comments or questions please SMS or call me at 8892663202.

Article Comment @Agarwal, basically Vastu highlights the importance of orientation to the cardinal directions. Whether it was the devalaya or the manushyalaya, great attention to having the building oriented to the cardinal directions was given.

Imbalances created by a tilt, as given by you, can be minimised by proper construction and location of the various rooms based on the astro data of your birth. Texts have also suggested creating depressions and installation of copper deposits to minimise Vastu inappropriate energies created by the wrong tilt.

@Kiran, you can get much information from articles in, our website and in our books which you can get at and at all leading bookshops of the country.
Niranjan Babu Bangalore
Article Comment Respected Sir
my specific question is as we know tilt plot is not so good,
what will be the remedy for tilt plot.

(dimention north to south 146 feet / east to west 73 feet)
which is north (tilt to west).

this is about 55 degree tilt house. (exact north become N/E)

Article Comment sir my name is kiran kumar. when i searched this it is very good information i got from u sir, thank u..i like to learn about the vastu regulations.plese help me to learn this thery concept.. thank u sir.
Article Comment Pallavi, as a basic rule allow a minumum of 1/9th all around free for energy flow. This one ninth is called the paisacha and should not have the main construction. This means on the shorter side 3 feet 4 inches should be free on either side. On the longer side of the site, 4 feet 6 inches should be free on either side. Based on these available space for construction, work out the ayadi and arrive on the right dimensions

Article Comment Priya Shivakumar, Your query can be answered professionally by us. Email us at

Anil, east and south are compatible

Sushma, south facing site is in order.

As a rule for everyone, when designing your home, see that there is good ventilation in terms of windows on all sides, particularly north (mercury - finance, intellect), east (Sun- health, physical and mental) and south (assertiveness and courage, younger generation)

Article Comment Hi,
We are constructing one house.Hw to consider the vasthu width and lenght?we saw the vasthu size in website in

feet.should we consider full building size or only room sizes as per vasthu sizes.what about it included in the vasthu size?we are under assumption that over all building size (without portico) should be as per vasthu it correct?our overall building length comes to roughly 50 feet.but no good points for this size.otherwise if we consider only room size for vasthu, we can fix our Hall room size at 33 then good points on this size.
pls advise me.vasthu will be considered for room wise or full building wise?

Thanks in advance.
