Varna is a Sanskrit word which means type, order, or class. people divided in this Varna system on the basis of their work. any one born in a particular Varna can be classified into other Varna on the basis of what kind of work the person is doing for a living.
Varna and four basic categories

- the Kshatriyas : rulers, warriors, and administrators.
- the Vaishyas : merchants.
- the Shudras : laborers and service providers.
The selection of land selection according to Vastu is a very important process to build a house. anyone who wants to build the house in the land should have a good examination of the land. one should know about the color, taste, slope, and dimension of the land for a better living. land selection according to Vastu take one more step forward and defines land for people according to their profession.
