During the ancient days, the color of the soil was selected as per the Varna, or Cast. White soil is good for the Brahmans, red for the Kshatriyas, yellow for the Vaisyas and black for sudras. It was advised to dig 12 ft down. If the soil is black up to 3 ft down and white or red below that, the land is suitable.
Soil & land: While purchasing land, it is ideal to buy land that can be cultivated, i.e., where the vegetation can grow. Land with too many rocks, worms, bones and thorny trees are not considered good. If it is high at the center and sloping towards the sides, it is not good.
Black and clayey soil is not good for building. If the soil is crumbly rock, money comes without effort. Yellow soil is ideal for the business community.
