Vastu Shastra is an ancient science energy flow throughout the house/office/factory that allows inflow of fresh air and natural light that promotes health, wealth, peace and happiness.
The most ancient science of architecture that goes back to the Vedic ages, it is composed of specific rules and regulations, set down by sages of those times, that an architect / builder / owner was expected to religiously follow to avoid coming under negative or evil influences. Today, it is looked upon as a highly evolved, comprehensive building philosophy in which directions and shapes are the most vital aspects of designing.
Right from the selection of site to correct slope of land down to the shape of the building, this oldest form of architecture covers nearly every aspect of construction. Not only for houses but temples, palaces, forts, offices…just about every possible form of construction. Often providing relief if not cures to physical or emotional problems simply by relocating an entrance, window or room.
Some of the important points made therein are:
- Directional Alignment
- Shape Of The Site
- Slope Of The Land Surface
- Impact of Gates At Various Locations
- Brahmasthan (Central Zone of the Building)
- The Staircase
- Inner Planning of a House
- Inner Planning of an Office
- Internal Planning of any Industrial Building
Five Elements Of Vastu
The whole universe is made up of five basic elements, the earth, water, fire, air and space. Our body is also made up of these five basic elements of nature. The pancha-mahabhootas are related to our five senses of smell, taste, hearing, touch and sight. Any imbalance in our external and internal Vastu translates into unhappy situations. Vastu teaches the individual to live in balance and harmony with the panchamahabhootas.
