company. Vaastu assists in achieving rhythm.

flow of wealth. Nevertheless if its from south or west, draw a

place your accounts department towards north and have the cash box
against the south wall of the room opening northwards.

all departmental heads. Vaastu says marketing controls the movement

The northeast corner is for noble
thinking, its called Ishanaya. Placing an impression of Lord

cases the influencing factor is the extent to which Vaastu is
followed in the rest of the premises. If you are following 65-70
percent of the guidelines, functional rhythm should be felt .
