Vastu Shastra


Vaastu Shastra is an ancient Indian system of designing and construction. It aims at establishing a dynamic balance between Form and Energy so that harmonious conditions are created for the inhabitants. Vaastu buildings have harmonious energies. They promote stability, prosperity, happiness, and mental peace for the occupants and owners. It is also known as Sthapatya Veda. Vaastu Shastra unifies the science, art, astronomy and astrology, it can also be called as an ancient mystic science for designing and building. Vaastu Shastra helps us to make our lives better and also secures us from things going wrong in future.

Vaastu can be used for every room, every house, every temple, every shop, industry, town planning, tour, cities and even for earth. Vaastu can be used for micro as well as for macro level.

Vaastu is the science of directions that combines all the five elements of nature and balances them with man and the material. It creates agreeable atmosphere to live or work, by taking advantage of the benefits bestowed by the five elements called 'Paanchbhootas' of the nature . The five basic and essential elements are—Vayu (air), Agni (fire), Jal (water), Bhumi (earth) and Aakasha (space). Everything on earth is built from these elements.

Vaastu is also based on various natural energies, which are available freely in atmosphere like :

Utilization of such energies gives us pleasure, peace, prosperity and money in our life. The solar energy has great significance as far as life on earth is concerned. Every creature on earth starts its life with sunrise as it performs day & night. Hence there is much importance of sun in every one life. It gives ultra violet rays in morning aind infra red rays in evening which reduce/generate bio-chemic:al germs, N2/0xygen/C02 on earth. Sun indicates light (illlumination), will power, generosity, solar system, luck or fatte, mobility and in body. It rules over bone, eye, heart, spinal <cord, blood circulation and soul etc. Hence east direction is auspicious; it belongs to lord Indra. North is considered auspicious since magnetic lines of force moves from North to South, thus origin of all the life. The basis of the Vaastu Shastra irests on the following :

  1. Cosmic influence : The heavemly bodies in the celestial space influence the activity on the surface of the earth.

  2. Solar Energy : The energy levels: and the radiation from the suns rays are not same all over the surface of the earth.

  3. Geo-Magnetic fields : The magnetic fields between the north and south poles of the earth (effect bio-organisms. The magnetic field also creates sensitive spots on the earths surface which are used to advantage, especially in communication whether in marine or extra-terrestrial navigation.

  4. Geology of the Crust : Materials for construction and other associated systems depend upon extractable minerals common to a region and hence the ability to select appropriate materials.

  5. Hydrology and Eco-systems : Habitable regions depend on perennial sources of water andl the types of supportive vegetation.

  6. Socio-cultural beliefs : Emergence of the human society from primitive to organised levels of a structured society, and gradual shifting from a metaphysical view of life to a materialistic one, resulting in need for body comfort.

Sages and seers have known the secrets of using all the five elements of this universe and their special characteristics and influences such as the magnetic field, gravitational effect etc. of Earth, the galaxy in the sky, the directions and velocity of the winds, light and heat of the SUN including the effects of its Ultra-Violet and Infra-Red rays, the volume and intensity of rainfall etc. for the advantage of the mankind in suitably planning and constructing buildings for dwelling, prayer, entertainment, education, working, production and other purposes. They evolved scientific methods and systems and confined them over the years as 'VAASTU SHASTRA'.
