  Vaastu Purusha Mandala
Vastu purusha mandala is the metaphysical diagrammatic design of cosmos on which the whole concept of Vastu Shastra is based. It is believed that Vastu purusha is lied down on the cosmos which constitutes energies in a way that his head is resting in North-east direction which represents balanced thinking; lower body facing South-west which represents strength and firmness; his navel is in center of the earth signifying cosmic awareness and holiness; his hand face North-west and South-east which signifies energy.

The name “Vastu purush” is closely connected with the Vastu shastra and every now and then we use this name in all the shantikarmas (rituals) performed in Karamkand (prayers). So we should know who this Vastu Purusha is.

There is a mythology concerning the birth of Vastu Purusha according to which Andhakasura a very powerful giant (Rakshasa) had terrorized the Devtas. Finally Lord Shiva fought a battle with Andhakasura and killed him. During this battle Lord Shiva perspired heavily. Out of the sweat of Lord Shiva this Vastu Purusha came into form, immediately after his birth he started devouring anything and everything that came in his way due to which Devtas were very much afraid and prayed to Brahma for help. Braham advised Devtas to over power this demon and press him down (face down) into the earth and hold him there. Accordingly 45 Devtas hold this vastu purush putting his face down and lying on earth from North East to South West.

After the above incident Vastupurush prayed to Braham dev for mercy in return Lord Braham blessed him and proclaimed that the construction on the earth will only be successful when the Vastu Purusha will be worshipped and respected in return the Vastupurush also promised to take care of the inmates of the house or the occupants of the land.

Vastu Purusha is a man lying with his back upside and bent and his head pointing North and East respectively. The direction allotted to the land and their utility represented by the body parts of the demon. The elbows point towards North-West and South East direction respectively. His knees are touching the elbows and are pointing the directions of the elbows only. His feet and soles are joined and are pointing jointly towards South-West direction. Naval part of the demon is imagined to be coinciding with the centre point of the land and is called Brahma Sthan the most auspicious space.

Vastu purusha is the presiding deity while other eight directions have their own specific God that governs their direction. The mandala is basically enclosed area in which Vastu purusha is lied down signifies his birth from nature. On the basis of this structure and prescribed directions construction is recommended and all the physical features are decided in terms of ventilation, doors, windows, location etc.

The Vastu mandala instructs us to locate different features into the place of presiding God to get maximum benefits in terms of good health, wealth, peace, progress and prosperity. The experts of Vastu frame a module to divide the areas according to which every placement and direction for physical feature is ascertained. However the most important place in Vastu purusha mandala is ‘Brahamasthana’, it is the sacred place (centre) which is considered appropriate for divinity and worship.

Vastu purusha mandala is followed by all experts with due respect and dignity in different design structures including temple, hospital, house, office, factory etc.
