Vastushastra

Vaastu is the science of direction that combines all the five elements of nature and balances them with man and materials. It is all about the interaction of various forms of best effect on a living person. It aims to create a subtle conducive atmosphere in a structure in which we can bring the best in ourselves, thereby paving the way for enhanced health, wealth, prosperity and happiness in an enlightened environment. Like any other science, vastu is universal, rational, practical and utilitarian. It is not a religion but a science.

Effects of “Panchmahabhoot” are seen because of “Satva”, “Raj” & “Tam” on human beings. Satva means Brain creativity, Raj means Body Activeness and Tam means Lethargy. It is essential that “Satva” increases, which is available in the Northeast direction. Hence if windows to the northeast direction are big in area they will increase the Satva. Early morning sunlight has Vitamin D and UV rays which also increase the Satva Gun. Hence it is preferable to have the temple or study in this direction.

When mind is not balanced it affects our work and if body is not balanced it affects our physical well being. It is hence necessary to have a balanced mind and body too. “Vaastushashtra” helps to balance all energies for our physical and mental well being.
