  3. Hello,
    Our house has two floors. Brahmasthan on ground floor of our house is open to sky. Rooms on first floor are built around center (not on brahmasthan), since it’s open right from ground floor.

    Its been said that one should not have a basement or a well in brahmasthan. Is the brahmasthan of first floor working like a basement? We have not given any portion on rent. Our sons’ room is on first floor – South of Southwest. Is the brahmasthan harmful ?

      • Hello Sir,
        There is no basement/well in brahmasthan (ground floor). Our ground floor’s brahmasthan is quite good – free from any weight.

        However, the same brahmasthan when seen from first floor – looks like a basement (for the first floor). Will it badly effect the person with room on first floor?
