What is Vastu?
The word Vastu which is derived from Vastu means creation. It is not just the science of house-craft but a study which extends to the realm of occultism. Vastu Shastra which is the underlying science of Vhawan Sthapatya Kala, is one of the eminent representations of our ancient heritage. The whole universe consists of five elements- earth, water, fire, air and space and Vastu principles impart balance and harmony among these five elements.

Vastu is a natural energy

As a result, the flexibility of the body and mind of a person increases thereby enabling a person to enjoy a much better life. Therefore, Vastu is not magic, it is a natural energy which assures prosperity, progress and peace in the lives of the people living in a house. When a residential or commercial building is built, it is imperative to follow the principles of Vastu failing which gives rise to disorderliness and disharmony. An architect can try to build a comfortable house but cannot ensure a happy living inside it. It is only through the help of Vastu science that we can achieve it.

Mother Earth

The earth nourishes all of us like a mother and is the treasure of all pleasure and comforts. This all-embracing motherly role of the earth is best tapped by the use of Vastu principles. Apart from the construction of a house, the interior decoration too is endowed with positive vibrations, if done according to Vastu principles. The thoughts, speech and action of the inhabitants of the house are in a harmonious state leading to health, wealth and happiness. When we carry on the various activities in our house or workplace as per the Vastu principles, we allow ourselves to draw power from nature in the most natural way. Once this happens, we are able to fulfill all our duties in a spontaneous and effortless manner.

Enhancing our destiny

Enhancing our destiny
We know that destiny cannot be altered but with the help of Vastu, we can make an effort to channelize our lives in a more positive and fruitful path and lessen the bad influences and negative impact to a great extent. A poor Vastu brings unsatisfactory results despite a strong fate and exalted planetary positions. On the contrary, a correct Vastu influence can do wonders in life despite our fate and stars not being on our side. Therefore, just as music, dance and painting are termed as fine arts, carpentry as commercial art, Vastu- Vidya is nothing but a technical and applied science for the welfare of the humanity.
