Vastu Shastra is an ancient Indian Vedic science of architecture. It gives guidelines on how buildings should be planned to maximise positive energies in the structures we dwell and work. Thereby, science of vast enables positive energies in our lives, keeping in mind the directions.
Actually, these directions influence electro-magnetic energies around us.
In English language, Vastu means house or a dwelling.
Principles behind Vastu Shastra (science)
According to Indian Vedic science; Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Space are five elements that constitute entire universe. These five elements constitute the human body as well.
Coordination of these five elements of nature with the elements of humans is critical for a harmonious life.
The Five elements of Life:
The five elements of life are known as Pancha Bhudaas in indic terminology.
These five elements are:
Bhoomi – the plot, Prasad- the building built on that plot
Yaana – vehicles around the building
Shayan – furniture in that given building.
In order to harness maximum positive energies, all these elements must work in sync. Consequently, all the family members then can that can have harmony and prosperity in their lives.
These elements predict how particular directions will interact with particular objects. Which further will affect life of people residing in that building, e.g. if a fire sign person sets up an office in the corner that represents the water corner, the elements will negate each other.
These little details of Vastu shastra are not only based on the directions and elements of the nature. These are also based on the personality of the dweller, or at least the element that the person was born into.
History of Vastu science
The earliest references on Vastu shastra can be found in Stapatya Veda. Stapatya Veda is a part of Atharvana Veda, one of the four Vedas. Cities of Mohenjo daro and Harappan civilisation were designed according to the Vastu Shastra principles. Matsya Purana, also discuses seventeen preceptors of Vastu.
Primarily, rules of Vastu shastra were applied while building Hindu temples. Later, houses, work places also statred incorporating these rules for prosperous and peaceful life.
If a building is not as per Vastu Shastra:
Are you facing lots problems in your business location or in your new office space?
Or as soon as you shifted to a new house, you have been facing lots of relationship issues?
Then, we can say that your building is not constructed according to principles of vastu shastra.
Any home or a building which is not according to vastu science principles result in financial losses, illnesses in family members or disharmony in relationships.
On the contrary, if your building follows principles of vastu then it will harness positive cosmic energies, thus resulting in peace and prosperity.
