If there is no peace in the house we live and there are continuous problems among the family members and health deteriorating in spite of medical treatments who live in the house are symptoms some time linked to Vasthu (The Hindu Art/Science of constructing a dwelling place in an auspicious manner on the basis of strong mythological and astronomical theories), this is similar to Feng_shui Chinese system for constructing buildings.

Once Sundarar was living with his wife Paravi at Thiruvarur. The couples perform Maheswara pooja on every Panguni Uttiram days and provide food and clothes to Shiva Adiyar (devotees). Before a Panguni Uttiram the financial condition of Sundarar was so bad  and in search of something Sundarar walked all the day to Thirupugalur, the temple was being constructed and bricks and gravel was found surrounding the temple. When he arrived at the temple it was late and the temple was closed. Sundarar decided to stay over-night and wakeup in the morning, take a bath at the temple Tank (a lake surrounding the temple ) and have darshan of the god. To take rest first he took a brick found nearby and used it as head-rest (pillow) and gravel as his bed and slept in the temple entrance. When he wokeup in the morning to his/everybodies surprise the brick has turned into a golden brick. The couple used it for Panguni Utthiram Maheswara pooja.

Since then people who plan to construct a new house, or owners of house which has Vasthu faults, people who want to build new business premises visit Thirupugalur temple  and perform Vasthu pooja – worship by offering  3 fresh bricks  are  performed in the sannathi of Konabiran by the priest of the temple and a sankalpam (request prayer) is done. It is believed that the bricks are graced by the God and visitors carry these bricks and use it in their construction of their building, then the building becomes auspicious and free from Vasthu problems. If the house/building is already constructed then placing the vasthu pooja bricks from the temple in their pooja room will make the building auspicious again. If the vasthu pooja bricks are used in construction of a new building - place 1 brick in the North-East direction, another brick in the South-East direction and the last brick in the Pooja room location. Also note that all the placement of the bricks should be 5 feet above the floor level.
