There is a trend of making New Year Resolution on first of every January. People make various resolutions and there are articles in news papers showing which celebrity has made what resolutions. Naturally this inspires the common man also to follow the same pattern and make some resolution for him.
I really wonder that do we really try our best to fulfill these resolutions or they are just for the sake of it because on first January we make resolution with unusual gusto but if it is too high to achieve, we always have one or the other excuse to forget that.
According to me it’s good to make a resolution but it should be a simple one which we really want to do and surely want to follow. It should not be some other person’s idea. We should have great urge to stick to our resolution so that it satisfies us and serves some purpose.
Generally the most popular resolution is to loose weight. Now this is a long process. We can not loose our weight just in few days, we should rather think of some thing like simple ways of weight reduction which can be daily morning walk, less consumption of oily food and more intakes of fruits. If this is done regularly we will achieve our target of loosing weight easily.
It is really easy to follow a simple and non taxing resolution. The more difficult is this; more excuses will be there to avoid it.
Now if we want to be more spiritual in life we can not achieve this in a day. We have to take out time from our daily routine. Sit for meditation for 5 minutes first and then only increase it gradually because it is tedious task. Do it in a pleasant manner so that it can give you satisfaction and happiness and not the tension or guilt of not following what you have promised to yourself.
On this New Year I will suggest one small thing. If possible do take out 5 to 10 minutes time after bath and sit for meditation or perform your pooja in your house temple. No need to go anywhere. Just sit in a neat place in a comfortable position and recite any mantra for 108 times or 5 to 10 times which suits you more. This will really make you feel more pious, more optimistic, contented and closer to almighty.
Wishing You All A Very Happy,
Healthy & Prosperous New Year.

Selection of land
There is close relationship between land and vastu. First of all land is selected for the construction of a building. A land which is having lot of green plants and trees on it and suitable for crops should be considered alive and can be selected for constructing residential building. The piece of land lacking fertility should be considered as dead and is inauspicious for the construction of residence. That land which has bones and termite in it or is broken should not be bought at all for the purpose of residence. According to Brihatsamhita thorny land gives troubles, broken land brings death, barren land causes loss of money and rough and rugged land increases the number of enemies. Therefore as pure and vegetarian food is not only good for health but also gives happiness to us similarly auspicious and faultless land keeps our minds cool.
Examination of Land :
Before buying a new piece of land it is essential to get it checked by vastu experts. Following principles should be followed for the examination of land-
But if there are articles like conch, tortoise and horns of cow in that case it can be considered auspicious land. If we get stones while digging it indicates gain of gold, bricks indicate prosperity; money indicates happiness and metals like copper bring lot of wealth.
Dig 1 by 1feet deep pit and fill it with the clay that comes out from it while digging it. If clay increases in quantity then it is excellent land, if the pit gets filled till the level land is medium and is inauspicious if the pit remains empty.
Dig one and half feet pit in the northern direction of the land and fill it with water completely and walk 100 steps towards north or watch the pit after 120 seconds. If pit is full with water the land is best, if half consider it medium and if empty it is inauspicious piece of land.
Vishwakarmaprakash gives a unique method of land examination. White wash the pit and light four lamps made of clay in all four directions by pouring ghee in it and see that lamp of which direction gives maximum light. If the lamp of north gives maximum light then that land is Brahmin if the lamp of east gives more powerful light it is Kshatriya land, more prominent light of east denotes Vaishya land and that of south denotes
Plough the land on which you plan to construct a house and sow all types of grains in that. If the seeds of these grains give sprout within three days it is the best land, if sprout come after 5 days it is medium, however it should be considered inauspicious land if sprout come after 7days. If seeds of different types are not available in that case the seeds of paddy can se sown. House should not be constructed in that part of the land where these paddy seeds do not grow.
There are 7 aushadhees (medicine) i.e, Vreehi, green lentil, wheat, mustard, saathi, sesame, and barley. These are known as all seeds. After sowing these seeds you must see their results. The land where there are flowers of copper and gold color is considered to be very auspicious.
Sometimes a piece of land is not examined before starting the construction work but it is wrong because it can result in disaster. For example if there are hairs, bones, dirty clothes, egg shells, termite and eggs of boa in a land then the house constructed at that place always brings sorrows only. Burnt coal brings disease, begging bowl and iron are the symbols of death. Bones, skull and hairs etc decrease the life span of the owner of the house.
Types of Land:
According to ancient books of Vastushastra the land has been classified into four categories:
In this way the classification of land has been done on the basis of color, taste and smell and according to this the kshatriya land is suitable for military cantonment, arsenals. Vaishya land is suitable for corporate houses and business persons whereas Brahmin
land can be used for constructing schools and temples. But in modern times the construction of buildings is not possible practically on the basis of this classification. For instance the soil of Karnatka is red that of Gujarat and Maharashtra is black where as the soil of Dwarkapuri is white. In that way would be appropriate to construct all schools, temples and literary institutes in whole Karnatka? Therefore this fact appears to be away from reality. Therefore in modern times that land only can be chosen for construction which is fertile with lot of availability of water and the soil is also solid and on which the building shall remain stable and strong.
- Brahmin Land: That land the color of which is white and the smell is like Ghee, taste is sweet like nectar and the touch of which makes us feel good is known as Brahmin land. On this type of land there are trees of Kusha
and Durva which are used for Homa.
This type of land brings spiritual bliss and comforts of all types. This type of land is used for the construction of schools, temples, guest houses and literary institutes.
- Kshatriya Land: That land the color of which is red, the smell is like blood, the taste is astringent and the feel of touch is solid is known as
Kshatriya land. Snakes are also there on this land. This land enhances kingdom, power and influence. This type of land is useful for the construction of government offices, cantonments, colonies of soldiers and arsenals.
- Vaishya Land: That land the color of which is green- yellow, the smell is like nectar or like grain and taste is acidic is known as Vaishya
land. There are grains and fruit trees on this type of land. Vaishya land enhances money and wealth. This type of land can be used for constructing professional buildings, shops and houses of business persons.
- Shudra Land: That land the color of which is black, the smell is like wine, and taste is bitter is known as Shudra land. There are bushes and shrubs on this type of land. This type of land causes quarrels and feuds therefore this land is not advisable for the construction of residential building.
