What is Vastu Shastra
The science of Vastu Shastra enables the flow of positive energies in our lives, keeping in mind the geographical directions. Actually, these directions influence electro-magnetic energies around us. Vastu Shastra is an ancient Indian Vedic science of architecture. It gives guidelines on how buildings should be planned to maximize positive energies in the structures we dwell in and work. In the English language, Vastu means a house or a dwelling. The aim of Vastu science is to bring peace, prosperity, and health to the lives of all.
Principles behind Vastu Shastra (Vastu science)
According to Indian Vedic science; Earth, Water, Fire, Air, and Space are five elements that constitute the 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 are known as Pancha Bhoota. In Sanskrit, it means Five Great Elements. According to Hinduism, everything made of these Five elements. Earth, fire, water, air and space are the five elements. 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. This further will affect the lives 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 nature. These are also based on the personality of the dweller, or at least the element that the person was born into.
