Bamboo, specially the dried ones, are regularly burnt as fuel or used to ignite the fire in rural areas of India. But Vaastu is very much against it. As bamboo is one of the main components of rural houses, it is regarded as a sacred item. You may have noticed that bamboo is never used for burning in religious fires like Havan or funeral pyres.It is said that burning of bamboo brings downfall and loss of lineage. We will discuss what Vaastu says about this.


Lord Krishna's favourite musical instrument is flute which is made of bamboo. A theory is that bamboo is not to be burnt because of this.

Bamboo is considered as a very auspicious building material and Mandaps (Stage) for weddings, sacred thread ceremony, Mundan (Upnayan), etc are made of bamboo. So It is not considered auspicious to burn bamboo. It is believed that ghosts and spirits do not come near bamboo plants.


Bamboo contains lead and other heavy metals like chromium, arsenic, cadmium, copper, nickel. Burning of bamboo produces Lead Oxide and other toxic oxides in gaseous form which are harmful if inhaled. So bamboo should not be burnt.

According to Feng Shui, the bamboo plant is good for health and longevity. The Chinese do not advocate burning of bamboo. It brings bad luck.

Ans: You have to counter the negative effects of Southeast and strengthen the Northeast. Install a "Shukra" yantra at Southeast and fix a Convex "Pa Kua" mirror facing the slope. Augment your Northeast by installing Guru Yantra along with a Sriyantra and the Ketu Yantra.
