Vastu consultant in Kolkata notes that in some households there are 2 kitchens present within the same vastu. Some people consider it a great way of utilizing space. But what vastu shastra says?
When there is enough space available, people make 2 or more toilets in home, so is the same rule applies for kitchens as well? Vastu consultant in Kolkata answers in the following sections.
What is the importance of kitchen in vastu shastra?
There are 5 elements in vastu, including air, water, earth, space and fire. Together these are called panchatatva and everything around us represents one of these elements.
The kitchen represents the fire element. A balanced fire in the home results in financial prosperity of its occupants. It also makes it possible for many auspicious events like marriage, childbirth etc in the family.
If kitchen can bring so much prosperity, isn’t having two kitchens in the vastu better than one? Vastu consultant in Kolkata says not. The concept of ‘the more the merrier does not apply here’.
Before understand its reason, we should discuss why 2 kitchens might be present in one household.
Why some households have more than one kitchen?
In more than 90 percent households, we have 1 kitchen itself. But in some homes, especially in spacious ones, we can see 2 kitchens.
This might happen due to one of the following 2 reasons-
- Separate kitchen for cooking pure veg or puja meals- people who are orthodox in their beliefs might have an extra kitchen just for preparing puja meals or pure veg food.
While they consume non veg item like fish, egg, meat or garlic etc on certain days, they might prefer to not even touch them during puja periods/specific days in week. They consider it impure to even keep these items in fridge or use the same utensil/oven for it.
So, they make a kitchen with limited items for this purpose, right adjacent to the puja room.
- Separate kitchen space in individual floor- In some big, multifloored houses, parents and their grown children life in separate floor for convenience. Especially when they are married, they prefer to cook some meals for themselves only.
If extra space is available, they make a separate kitchen in it.
Why having 2 kitchens in vastu is a bad idea?
Now, let us understand why having 2 kitchens is considered bad as per Vastu consultant in Kolkata. Kitchen represents food. Food not only provides us nourishment, but also forms bond.
When any conflict happens in family, the first thing that they separate is the kitchen, even if they continue to live under the same roof.
So, as per vastu shastra, 2 kitchens represent breaking up of a family. Even if you might be enjoying a good relation with your family members and have kept the extra kitchen just for comfort, it is still bad.
It is like an inauspicious omen. 2 kitchens in the vastu can bring family conflicts in later on. Vastu consultant in Kolkata recommends avoiding it altogether to be on the safe side.
What to do if you need to prepare separate puja food?
Cooking in the same kitchen where you cook non veg item might be unacceptable for many people. It is especially seen in the village sides.
For them it is not a big issue since they can dig up a temporary oven in the backyard itself and cook the puja meals.
For city people however, doing so is not even an option to begin with. So what can be done? Well, you can keep some minimal utensils and oven for puja food and neatly keep them in the puja room itself.
During the puja period, you can use the cylinder (clean it properly and purify with sprinkling holy water, if needed) and these items to puja food. You can do this in the roof or puja room, whichever is more convenient.
But under no circumstance keep an extra, full time functional kitchen in the vastu.
So, no matter how big house you have and how much scope you have to have extra kitchens, never make one. Like there is one soul in a body, there should be only one kitchen in one vastu.
Have only kitchen in the vastu, preferably in south east or south of south west zone. The south side of the vastu represents fire element and thus is most suitable for kitchen placement.
Place a green baroda marble under the oven for getting its benefits. Make sure that the slab is slightly bigger than that of the oven.
