8 Inauspicious Practices That Might Lead To Poverty


Vastu Shastra is one such discipline which is used to change the aura and the type of energy around you. From the infrastructure of the house to the showpieces we use to decorate it, Vastu Shastra can speak about all these.

While there are things which can help you become luckier or prosperous and wealthy, Vastu Shastra can help us progress in everything by using some simple tips. Based on Vastu Shastra, here are 8 inauspicious practices that might lead to poverty. Take a look.


Do Not Place The Broom Here

There are certain places where we should not keep the broom. Doing so is believed to be inauspicious for the prosperity in the house. Vastu Shastra says that we should never keep the broom near an almirah or even near the cash cupboard.



When we have to take medicines, we might go to the kitchen for water, and place the box of medicines there only after taking the medicines. However, Vastu Shastra says this practice is not good. We should never keep the box of medicines or any medicine in the kitchen.


Bathroom Door

The door of the bathroom should never remain open when not in use. Most of us have the habit of leaving the bathroom door open as we come out of it after a shower. However, this is wrong according to Vastu Shashtra. The negative energy that becomes predominant might cause interruptions in business or work life.


Lines On The Walls

Children often like to draw lines on walls while playing. However, they should never be let to do that. Vastu Shastra says that haphazard lines drawn on the walls of the house never lets one clear off his debts. Hence, it is not auspicious.


Certain Items Kept In The South Direction

Items related to water such as aquariums or cans of water should not be kept in the south direction. It is not considered auspicious. Apart from such items, images of Gods, such as statues and such showpieces should also not be kept in this direction of the house.


Cleanliness In The North-east Direction

While we already know that Goddess Lakshmi does not like it when the house is dirty and not cleaned, when there is garbage in the north-east direction of the house, it is considered highly inauspicious. Hence, the north-east direction of the house should be kept neat and clean and in order.


Puja Room

The Puja room should not be there in the bedroom. Along with this, no images of gods or goddesses should be there in the bedroom. Keeping these in the bedroom might annoy the deities you worship.


Certain Plants

Certain plants such as those which secrete white poison should not be let to grow in the house. Those with thorns should not be planted in your house, says Vastu Shastra. All these affect the prosperity of the house negatively.
