Choice of Directions
In Feng Shui, the location of main door in the house is decided on the basis of time of birth.
The direction of the door contributes profusely for the prosperity of residents.
The plot should be situated at such a place where harmony may be established between the house and environment. The people of China keep the main door in South so that sufficient sunlight may be available. The North remains cool and is avoided. Chinese do not keep doors in North-East and South-West as they think that satan lives in these directions.
Selection of 4 corners of the house is important because these are instrumental in having progress and good luck. The correct choice of a place for sleeping, living etc gives prosperity.
