What is Vastu ???
Vaastu is an ancient Vedic science of layout planning of buildings that has
stood the test of times, influencing peace and prosperity of the inhabitants. Vaastu science does not find its roots in astrology but is a science which deals
with the management of cosmic energy in Building & Structures. It has strong
scientific base & is not a myth.
In modern times , the knowledge of house building technology has grown so
vast , that it has been branched off into special fields such as architecture,
engineering and Interior decoration. Architecture deals with the Internal
comfort and external beauty, Civil engineering deals with the structural
stability but Vaastu provides with the k knowledge to be adopted in building a
house so as to make the native happy, healthy and prosperous. Vaastu principles
are applicable to individual residential houses , industry, educational
institutions, commercial complexes , theaters, hospitals, churches, etc.. If
colonies, villages and cities are planned on its principles , it is said that
they will all be very prosperous. To understand Vaastu all one needs is a little
knowledge about Astronomy. We know that our earth, while moving around the sun,
continues to spin on its own axis with a tilt of 23.5o.While spinning, the earth
moves from West to East. You will observe that car is designed in such a way
that its front part is kept lower than the rear part, to enable it to overcome
the wind resistance when in speed. Similarly the nose part of the plane and
rocket are kept tapering forward. Since our earth is moving from West to East,
if your building is lower on the East and higher on the West, only then it will
be able to withstand the resistance of winds easily and get filled with positive
energy from North- East, leading to peace and prosperity of the inmates.
Thus a clear understanding of the principles of science can help you to delve
into the true meaning of Vastu Shastra and reap its benefits. Rejecting Vaastu
science summarily may result in your being subjected to harmful effects
unknowingly for the whole of your life.
It is common sight to see one industry or business house flourishing while
another similarly planned unit run into problems. When in trouble we find it
easy to blame the luck but have we ever paused to ponder that it might be the
structure and their placement in the factory that might be responsible for the
troubles. Does it sound unbelievable? May be, but then it is a time tested fact
that when industries are constructed observing the principles of Vaastu , there
is peace and prosperity, while those breaking these tenets find themselves
forced into unwanted troubles and miseries.
