Introduction to Vaastu
Vastu Shastra is the Vedic study of
architecture, which follows certain principles and is
aligned with certain beliefs. In earth, there are so
many forces which affect our life. We can utilise
those forces by following Vastu principles.
The world comprises of five basic
elements, also known as the Paanchbhootas. They are
Earth, Water, Air, Fire and Space. Out of the nine
planets, our planet has life because of the presence
of these five elements.
is the science of direction that combines all the five elements of
nature and balance them with the man and the material. Vastu
Shastra is creating a congenial settings or a place to live or
work, in most scientific way taking advantages of the benefits
bestowed by the five elements called "Paanchbhootas" of
the nature thereby paving the way for enhanced health, wealth,
prosperity and happiness in an enlightened environment.
The importance of orientation of a building is not only for saving
energy but also to have a better house design, which not only
gives comfortable living but also gives good health, prosperity
and wealth to the house owners/occupiers and these families. There
lies a co-relation between the rotational scenario of the
planets and the house design and their different directions with
respect of NORTH. The building of any type and its construction
meets the purpose if proper orientation has been given using
suitable local building material. It increases not only its life
span but also improves the condition of occupants. There are
instances where buildings are not planned according to required
local orientation were lost or deteriorated much faster then the
buildings having built with proper studies of orientation.
The proper orientation means the proper
knowledge of all the eight directions. It is a common knowledge
that the direction from where the Sun arises is known as East and
where it sets as West and when one faces the East direction,
towards one's left is North and towards one's right is South. The
corner where two directions meet obviously is more significant
since it combines the forces emanating from both the directions.
SO in all there are eight directions , North, Northeast, East, Southeast,
South, Southwest, West, Northwest. Every direction has its own
significance and has its own construction. The basic rules of
Vastu Shastra are based on these eight directions.
Vastu is essential
Vastu forms the basics of each construction; one must follow Vastu
from the initial level i.e. from choosing a plot to shift in the
house. Everything should be done according to Vastu principle
since Vastu is not merely a word but it is a SCIENCE and a bridge
between man and nature.
Vastu is followed while choosing a plot, how to choose a plot: the
shape, the nature of the soil. When and how to construct a house,
how to do the interiors, how to choose colour and when to shift.
Vastu is such a deep science that it is a pool of information and
one can have any doubts cleared with proper reasoning.
Vastu is unique
Vastu is a science that has originated from India. Feng shui is an
art of harnessing energies. Though both have a same objective, the
benefit of humanity but the principles are very different. I am a
strict follower of Vastu as it is originated from India and its
based on our culture, traditions, geographical conditions,
climatical conditions and everything for India. And fengshui is
originated in China and based on their culture and traditions.
If you want
happiness, health and prosperity then Vastu Shastra is the only
way. Vastu tells us how we build our house, the doors and windows
should be in particular direction, dining rooms, bedroom
directions and what furniture should be placed where in the house.
To sum it up, one can easily leave it upon Vastu to design and set
The concepts of
Vastu rely on the tenets that combination of aforesaid elements
can be made to aid in one�s over all well-being in the world.
Hence, advices may range from refraining to use river-mud while
constructing one�s puja-room, or placing the bed in the bedroom
in a North-South direction. If a river flows, then what�s the
room direction and doors and windows directions?
un-scientific in Vastu Shastra. Vastu covers a major part of our
life. And as it happens with every all encompassing subject, the
followers of Vastu are many. Now a day, many builders are taking
advice from vastu specialists before finalizing a design for any
prospective building, as a considerable number of buyers and
clients tend to follow Vastu Shastra.
See, Vastu Shastra
is important but never get too much involved in Vastu Shastra for
example, if you want to drink water then don�t ask in which
direction I drink, or in which direction I eat.
