There are three things everyone in the universe needs- Food, clothes and a place to live. Kitchen is a place in our home responsible for converting raw materials into actual food we consume that is the powersource of our entire day’s energy. Thus, having a kitchen in compliance with vastu shastra is an important factor one needs to consider. It is necessary to enhance the positive aura as well as effect of the kitchen so as to fill our food with positive vibes so as to ensure mental as well as health security.
Kitchen in our home represents one of the 5 elements the earth is made of- The fire. The Lord of Agni prevails in the south-east direction, so it is the most auspicious direction to build a kitchen. A food cooked with a positive energy from all the directions is the only thing that benefits you and your health. A vastu compliant kitchen ensures you lead a life away from all the family disputes, health as well as financial instabilities.
East quadrant is considered an excellent location for kitchen because this area brings prosperity. It is considered auspicious to have a kitchen room away from the toilet, Pooja room as well as bedroom. The gas stove should be placed in the southeast corner of the kitchen. Being the fire element in the kitchen, it should be in the corner where the lord of fire exists.
