Vastu Shastra: Hindu Science of Architecture

The subject of Vastu has-been prepared on the basis of surrounding nature and its elements. We all know that we are dependent on nature. Therefore any change in nature certainly influences our lives significantly.

Vastu Shastra
It is a benefic subject or science which depends on solar energy and different directions of land. Let me tell you the 5 most important elements of nature: PANCHATANTRA
1. Khiti —– Bhumi/earth
2..Apo. —– Water
3. Tez. —– Agni/Fire
4. Morut—- Vayu/Air
5. Bom —– Akash/Space

All these elements carry their own energy. The knowledge of Vastu Shastra helps the energy from these to flow in the direction for positivity. So, Vastu Shastra can also be thought of the mechanism that makes architecture and nature work together for harmony and peace. Many big cities of India have been constructed following Vastu Shastra. Jaipur and Chandigarh fall under this category.

These elements are not only the elements to make human beings stay alive but also they are the core medias of the enrichment and success of human beings. If we can prepare our living places or our houses in planned way by utilizing these elements optimally then there will be the welfare and success of us which is the objective of Vastu shastra. We cannot control the nature and hence their elements but we can bring the balances i. e. equilibrium between these elements to bring the welfare of human beings which has been stated in the Vastu Shastra. The application of this subject itself is Vastu tantra.
A home other than being only a house to live, it is an increase of our mental space and indication of our identity. Every part of our life is profoundly laced with the design, decor and maintenance of our home. The meaning of Vastu is dwelling, which is the home for god and humans. Vastu Shastra depends on different energies that originates from atmosphere like solar energy from sun, cosmic energy, lunar energy, thermal energy, magnetic energy, light energy, wind energy. These energies can be adjusted to upgrade peace, prosperity and achievements. If a house is made according to these principles, the inmates enjoy all the happiness in life. If it is against Vastu principals, it will be a spot for all kind of issues, stresses and no peace. The different Area which we cover in Vastu Services are:-

In the present day, the number of Vastu experts in our country is second only to the number of Cricket experts and just like the latter, they have strongly differing opinions on what rules and principles one must follow to ensure Vastu Shastra compliance.
Given this information overload, what rules you should follow and what rules you can choose to discard are entirely at your discretion.
We wanted to make your life simpler and therefore, we have put together a list of five things that are an Absolute Must when you’re looking for a house.
(PS – even if you are not a believer, it doesn’t hurt to have compliance, simply to enhance the resale value of the house!)
1. Pre-construction
It is recommended that one performs a Bhumi Pooja (worshipping the earth) before starting the house construction. This is considered an auspicious beginning and heralds a good start to the proceedings.
2. House entrance
East is the most auspicious direction for the entrance of a home. This is because the sun rises in the east and is said to bring in positive energy and light into the household. The other acceptable direction that the house entrance can face is towards the North East.
3. Kitchen location
The South-East corner of the house is the most ideal one for the kitchen’s location and cooking supposedly should be done while facing the East. However, please bear in mind that the kitchen should not be located directly in front of the main door of the house.
4. Master Bedroom
The Master Bedroom should be located at the South West corner of an East-facing home. From our perspective, if you follow (2) and (3), you will ensure that you can sleep soundly without having to let the aroma or the noise accompanying the cooking to wake you up. Square and rectangular shaped bedrooms are recommended, so that you can leave the avant-garde construction to the other sections of the house.
5. Toilet location
The toilet location is another vital aspect, both from the perspective of Vastu as well as from a general health and aesthetics angle. Toilets are to be located in the North-West corner of the building or the North-West corner of the rooms. If this is not possible, South East toilets are allowed. It is also recommended (and sensible, in our opinion, we might add), that the toilets, kitchen and Pooja room in the house should not be adjacent to each other.
There are numerous other terms and conditions that one must apply to get the perfect Vastu compliance in the house. But we’re afraid that giving you all the information necessary and having you find a home that meets the parameters perfectly might add a couple of extra years to your house purchasing process.
