Vaasthu shaastra is an ancient traditional architectural science born and developed in India. Vaasthu shaastra deals with the architectural and engineering needs of any structure. The word Vaasthu is derived from Sanskrit word ‘VAS’ that means to dwell and Vasthu means earth. Shaastra means science. Vaasthu shaastra has its origin in Stapatya Veda, from Adharvana Veda, which is one of the four Vedas. Vaasthu Shaastra means the science of all “matter and energy” and “time and space” in the universe and its use of creating dwellings, temples, forts, monumental structures, and even vehicles. Vasthu Shastra is the set of guidelines prescribed by the Rishis or learned men of ancient India for planning and constructing our dwelling places which range from our homes, cities, states, countries and eventually extend to our planet and the universe!
Man’s quest for health and happiness has been rewarded by Nature in various forms. The evolution thereof is a never-ending process, though the momentum, depending on several factors, keeps on changing. ‘Vastu’ is one of such forms. Now you too can arrange house according to Vastu and make your life a happier and harmonious.
Human beings are largely influenced by planetary movements, and the impact of these movements is reflected by way of astrology. The basic purpose of astrology is to help one take precautions against possible mishaps, if at all it’s possible. The very same plank holds good for vastu shastra, its close relevance may be observed with the solar system, and cosmic rays: they have implications in relation to us, our life, our homes, plots, buildings, amidst a particular location, or area, not to speak of what type of a compound wall, for instance, you have built around your home.
Akasham or Sky, Vaayu or Air, Agni or Fire, Bhumi or Earth and Jalam or Water
The shastras or the ancient Indian texts on science tell us that cosmic energy has a specific influence on living beings. Vasthu Shastra involves the alignment of these five basic elements according to the law of nature. The effects of these five elements have to be studied to appreciate the science of vasthu in its pure form and also to pacify skeptics who question the efficiency and validity of vasthu shastra. Since vasthu is based on the permanent property of the earth namely inclination towards the north, the effect of vasthu is universal . The Vasthusasthram has developed over generations as a result of observations of the influence of the SUN and the MAGNETIC fields on earth and living bodies, mentally and physically.
For any problems that you may be having with your health, mental and body peace, it is recommended that you construct buildings “as per the principals of Vasthusasthra
