Builders now more conscious of geomancy, says expert


Over 85% of property in Malaysia is compatible with Indian and Chinese geomancy, said vasthu sastra expert T. Selva.

“Developers are now more conscious of incorporating ancient values to satisfy customer needs in their architectural design,” he said.

However, despite its many rules, geomancy does not limit the choice of potential homes as long as buyers are aware of its principles and are able to apply them, he added.

Selva, who is The Star’s senior consulting editor and Ancient Secrets columnist, was giving a talk on how to choose a home according to vasthu sastra (Indian geomancy) at the three-day StarProperty Fair 2014 at the Setia City Convention Centre that ended yesterday.

“Do not use your gut feeling to buy property but determine whether the property is in harmony with the five elements of ether, fire, water, earth and air,” he said.

Selva also advised buyers to use a proper compass to determine the direction of a potential property and not simply base it on sunrise.

“There are eight directions in a compass, and the only direction a homebuyer should avoid having the main door or driveway located is the south-west, which is inauspicious.

“A house facing north is good as it is on the magnetic axis and welcomes positive energy. If the land is sloping towards the north, it is also considered favourable,” he said.

Meanwhile, REI Group of Companies CEO Dr Daniele Gambero spoke on economic growth in the southern corridor of the Klang Valley (south of Sri Petaling towards Seremban), an area he said was worth investing in.

He said economic growth had caused property growth in the Klang Valley, as opposed to the common belief that property growth was the cause rather than the effect.

Dr Gambero, who is a strategic marketing consultant, also highlighted the definition of affordable property in Malaysia.

“The numbers vary greatly. With the gross domestic product in the Klang Valley, affordable homes cost around RM700,000.

“But in states such as Kelantan and Perlis, they are priced at only about RM180,000 or below,” he added. --The Star
