The ancient wisdom of architectonics also more commonly known as Vastu Shastra has been expanding its horizon in the last few decades. Considered to be an intrinsic science, useful in balancing the overall energy fields of a household and its adjoining areas, Vastu Shastra laws are applied at various levels. From the basic architecture of the construction of various rooms as per their auspicious directions to the interiors and placement of furniture and electronic equipment and gadgets, Vastu Shastra works at various macro and micro levels. One of the most common gadgets used in virtually every household is a personal computer.
For many work from office professionals and homepreneurs (folks who own and operate a home-based business), their workspace is very important, just like an office. Let us discuss some of the best designs and positions for the computer and table in the house.
Vastu for students using computers
Computers are used as an educational tool by students and as the main tool by work from home professionals. Before deciding on the right design of the computer table and the best-suited direction, it is important to understand the individual usage of the computer.
For students using computers for educational purposes, the PC must be ideally located in their study room. There should not be any beam or girder directly above the computer table. The placement of the computer screen must be incorporated in such a way that the student faces the eastern or northern direction while working on the computer.
The best recommended direction for home computer
The best-recommended direction for the placement of a personal computer is the South-east corner. Computers must never be placed in the children’s bedroom as its energies can interfere with the overall development of the child. Since the south-east area of the home or home office represents the fire element, it is one of the best directions for placement for computers and laptops.
The computer table must always be clutter-free and devoid of any unwanted papers or other equipment. The use of crystal sets is recommended on the computer table to allow an increase in concentration and enhanced learning for students. All electronic gadgets including printers, fax machines, and modems must be placed serially either below the computer table in their cabinet sections or lined up against the south-east corner desk.
Any home or home office desk with a computer must never be placed along a common wall with a toilet on the other side. Since a computer is an electronic device with an electromagnetic workforce, any association with the energy of the water element can be counterproductive. The design of the computer table must always be rectangular with a well-polished hard outer surface. The placement of the computer of a glass top table is not recommended as per the laws of Vastu Shastra. The table must not have round edges or very sharp corners. The chair used while working on the computer should have a solid back and free from any screeching sounds that can impact negative energy.
