The east, west,
north, and south directions are called the main
directions of vastu, while northeast, northwest,
southeast, and southwest are the sub directions. The
main directions of vastu represent streams of specific
energies. Since these directions act as source or sink
for energies, orientation and alignment of forces are
predetermined in their zones of influence.
In absence of such constraints,
sub directions play important role. It is because sub directions
represent zone of confluence of different energies that are at
right angle to each other. As such any disturbance in flow in any
sub direction initiates turbulence in energy flow which is aligned
to the main directions. In ancient texts, sub directions are
called 'Marma-Sthan' or
The east and north represent
source directions for 'Pranik' and 'Jaivik' energy flows respectively while the west and
south represent the sinks for these energies.
Jaivik Urja and Pranic Urja
north and south geomagnetic flux is termed as 'Jaivik
Urja’ or organic energy. This force field helps in
locating the energy medians in living beings and providing them
with natural orientation. This eternal indirection flow defines,
directs and propagates the existence at cellular level. The solar
energy flux keeps on changing as per the position of the sun
relative to the earth. This force field with photon quanta as
energy packets is termed as the 'Pranik Urja'.
This leads to the following
source and sink combinations -
Northeast - It is a
source-source focal point. Minimum or no load and maximum side
margins lead to ample positive energy flow for vastu.
Southeast -It is a sink-sink focal point. Maximum loading and
minimum side margins allows for balancing hte energy-matter
Similarly, comparatively reduced
charges are indicated for the southeast and northwest zones, which
are sink-source and source-sink focal points respectively.
Aura of Directions
directions north and south are related to geomagnetic organic
flow. East and west are related to solar Pranik flow. Hence flows
in main direction have direct effect on one stream only. But any
flow in the sub directions (the most effective zones) contributes
to disturbance in both streams. A fault in sub direction leads to
cut and break in the flow of cosmic helix of energy.
The reason behind this is that
in a spherical sky of 360 �., there are in all 12 points
(30 deg. each) allotted for main and sub directions together. This
implies that main direction controls 30 deg. of space whereas sub
direction rules over 60 deg. of adjacent space.
Hence in 'Dwar
Nivesh Phal’ main doors are not situated in the
sub directions. Dwar Nivesh Phal considers the hidden source-sink
and energy -matter relationship while determining the position of
the entrance to the vastu. The specific deities, virtues, and
vices in Dwar Nivesh Phal symbolically represent the micro
variations in the energy levels.
DIRECTIONS AND FLOORING
Selection of flooring material
and patterns can be finalized by making use of the qualities of
the five great elements, energy, source-sink relationship, and
energy matter equation as applied to sub directions. The flooring
pattern is selected in such a manner that the Pranik and Jaivik
Urja create positive energy envelope for the vastu.
North-east zone -
White marble enhances positive energy sources as it reflects and
polarizes sunlight. Also white color is the color of 'jal
tatwa’ and the north-east zone requires the
qualities of the jal tatwa.
South-east zone - Agra
red stone or any other pink colored stone provides the necessary
loading to compensate the energy sink and the red colour
representing 'agni tatwa' satisfies
the requirements of this zone.
- Kota or blue tandoor stone is suitable for this zone. Blue color
represents 'vayu tatwa’ matching the
qualitative requirements of this zone.
South-west zone - Yellow
colored stone as yellow jaisalmer stone represent the 'Prithvi
tatwa’ and hence orients the 'gurutwa' (heaviness)
towards this zone. Gurutwa is required to compensate the sink-sink
combination in this zone.
