To say precisely Vastu brings peace,
prosperity and harmony in a living place. In this fast moving world, it is extremely
difficult to find peace and happiness. How many times have you
heard people say 'I am always troubled and can't find any
happiness in my new home', or 'I can't seem to achieve any success
in my business since I have shifted to the new building'? These
sorts of problems are very common if the house or a building is
not built according to certain principles set in the ancient
science of Vaastu Shastra.
The word 'vaastu' means a dwelling and Vaastu
Shilpa is the science of house building. This science is very
ancient in India. According to Hindu mythology, it is said that Lord Shiva passed this science of
Vaastu Shastra to Brahma, the creator of the universe. The
present day vaastu consists of 125 verses contained in brihat
sanhita of varahamihira.
The science of Vaastu Shastra is an ancient science, which helps
one to get the natural benefits offered by the five basic elements
of the universe - Akash (SKY), Prithvi (EARTH), Paani (WATER),
Agni (FIRE), and Vayu (WIND). Vaastu Shastra can be applied by
keeping in harmony with these five basic elements of nature.
You might have observed many a time that in spite of putting in
all the required effort and resources, you are unable to obtain
the desired result. Similarly, you might observe disharmony and
chaos in your family though you are unable to figure out the cause
of the problems. An expert in Vaastu Shastra can tell you if the
construction of the building is the root cause of all the
problems, and also give you solutions. With a little bit of
modification in the building, you will soon notice good results
and well being gradually and steadily.
We feel much better when our environment is in
tune with nature but as soon as the equilibrium imbalances, it
practically affects human beings in every way. A place can be in
harmony only if it is tolerant and Vastu compliant with our
nature. Thus Vastu is all about balancing the energies around environment; we certainly get a new harmonious place which
renders us good health, wealth and peace.
