Such a building is cursed by the disturbed soul. Happiness prosperity and love are never found in such accursed buildings. Difficulties will crop up daily. There is every possibility that the joyous moments will be turned into disappointments. People living in accursed buildings are also prone to frequent illness, accidents, death, lack of prosperity in business and others. Tender feelings like love, companionship and friendship will be particularly lacking. A house can also be cursed if a guest is ill treated here. According to Indian customs and religion a guest is always treated with love and respect. In fact this culture considers a guest equivalent to God. Hence under no circumstances can a guest be mistreated.
When the people living in the accursed buildings shift to a new residence they will get peace of mind in this new building. The people coming next to reside in these accursed buildings are also troubled. If possible accursed buildings should not be purchased at all. However if the building is totally demolished and a brand new building is constructed the negative effect will be completely removed. Care should be taken that no material like doors, windows or wooden beams of the old building is used. All the material of the old building should be sold or disposed off. However while purchasing an old building if the owner is a good person and if he has prospered in that building then there is no harm in purchasing the building.
The person who has died because of atrocities his or her picture should never be kept in the Pooja Ghar, main entrance, bedroom, sitting room or in the strong room. It is considered inauspicious. They should be immersed in the river after performing all the rites. There are certain rules that should be followed in the accursed buildings or structures to avoid problems:-
It is very important to perform the Shraddha of the accursed person and as far as possible his last wishes or most cherished desires be fulfilled.
If the wishes of the accursed person are fulfilled by the members of the family sometimes the problems created by these souls are reduced. For reducing the troubles caused by an aggrieved soul incense stick should be burnt in the house every evening.
No new project should be started on the New Moon day or the Full Moon day. Even going to outstation on these days should be avoided.
A coconut should be broken on the threshold of the main entrance New Moon and the Full Moon days and the pieces should be kept in the 4 corners and the centre of the house. On the next day they should be picked up and thrown in the garbage.
There should not be any garbage in the house.
The house should always be kept clean and the floor or the tiles should be regularly washed with water.
Every morning or evening the courtyard should be swept and sprayed with water. If possible a little Gomutra and the ashes from the pit of the sacred fire should be added to the water.
In the evening incense stick should be burnt in the house.
After 9 PM. It is quite auspicious to recite 'Hanuman Chalisa' and Gurucharitra in the house.
In the ' Pitrupaksha ' the dead souls should be invoked to bring peace and prosperity in the house.
After visiting the funeral site one should wash his feet and hands before entering the house. It is also important to take a bath and wash off all the clothes worn to the funeral.
Whenever the food is cooked an offering to Agni Devta (Fire) should be made. Besides him food also needs to be offered to Vastupurush in the South-East corner, crows and other birds and cow and the dog. All these things will lead to peace of mind.
Another problem faced in these buildings is that sunlight hardly reaches them. Ultra violet rays are very significant to generate the positive energies within the house. So as one enters he or she may feel comfortable or even sick.
The rooms that do not receive sunlight at all should not be used for keeping safes. Photographs of dead persons should never be displayed in such rooms. These should be kept clean. Incense stick should be burnt in the evening daily. In the East or the West a photograph of Lord Hanuman needs to be hung. No auspicious activity should take place in such rooms.
Do not use the rooms in which a person has died of atrocities. In such rooms heavy and unnecessary articles should be kept in the South, the West and the South-West directions. Windows of such rooms should never be kept open in the evenings. Nobody should enter such rooms on the New and Full Moon days. Do not take any important decisions in such rooms. Meat should not be cooked, sour things should not be eaten and drinks should not be taken here.
