What is Vastu?
Vastu shastra is an ancient science which consists of rules made out of a traditional view on the way in which the laws of nature affect the human dwellings. The building designs are based on directional alignments. It is said that Mahamuni Mayan of south India, a demon reformed by tapasya, and Vishwakarman in North India laid the foundation of Vastu Shastra.

The principle of Vastu Shastra are primarily concerned with architecture – building houses, forts, temples, apartments, offices and other buildings. According to Vastu, the world comprises of five basic elements: the panch mahabhoot. It is believed that earth is the only planet among the eight because of the presence and balance of these five elements here. These are:

vastushastra Earth (Prithvi): Earth’s magnetic field and the gravitational force has a considerable affect on everything that is present on earth, living or non-living.

Water (Jal): Water is represented by rain, rivers, oceans and is present in all three forms i.e Solid, Liquid and Gas. Water is an essential part of all living beings, plants and animals.

Air (Vayu): Air is a very powerful life source. The physical comfort value of a human directly depends on the correct composition, flow, temperature, pressure and content of the air.

Fire (Agni): Agni represents the heat and light which account for day and night, seasons and energy, enthusiasm, vigour and passion.

Space (Akash): The space provides shelter to all the other elements. It is considered as the primary conductor of all energy sources – physical energies like sound, light and heat, Social energies like phsychlogical and emotional energy, and cognitive energies like intellect and intuition – within the universal context.

There is believed to be an invisible but constant relation between these five primary elements.The science of Vastu depends on balancing these elements in the buildings and understanding the effectiveness of these five natural forces. Vastu combine these energies and balance them with the person thereby facilitating spiritual well being and enhancing health, wealth, happiness and prosperity.
