Know the power of Vaastu and utilize it in the most efficient manner to get results which have the power to revolutionaries the world.
Humans evolved in Africa and about 40 thousand years ago they started to move out of the continent and set foot into new territories. With time they started to live in more and more complex societies and slowly developed themselves into a culture, which was quite advanced in science and technology.
One such science developed in the ancient India is the ‘Architectural Science’, more commonly known as the VaastuShastra. The word Vaastu is derived from Vasti, which means place of residing or house. The roots of Vaastu can be traced to several centuries back. VaastuShastra is an ancient and time-tested Indian technique, an aspect of architecture, which helps in making an effective lay. Many of its principles can easily be seen in numerous Vedas and scriptures as well.
Vaastu is essentially the science of building structures. Thus, motley of structures regardless of their usage, be it residential, commercial, religious, industrial, or institutional, etc. fall under its purview. Vaastu is a diagnostic explanation of the scientific truths and facts.
One very famous maxim by Viswakarma in the VaastuShastra can be stated as the following:
“This science is complete in itself. Happiness to the whole world it can bring,
All the four benefits it bestows on you,
Rightful living, money, fulfillment of desires and bliss,
Are all available in this world itself”
The rationale in the Vaastu is related with the properties (natural energies) of our Mother Earth. It plainly indicates that the sources of energies should be open and the flow of energies should not be disturbed. This can be more clearly understood by knowing that we are all made up of and are surrounded by five elements of nature, namely water, earth, wind, fire, and ether, and energy fields of various types produced by them. On an open ground, these elements and the energy fields associated with them function freely, in utter equipoise. But when a structure is brought into this energy field, disequilibrium happens, and it be must be restored to nullify any bad impacts it might create.
If this equilibrium is attained in an appropriate manner then a simpatico flow of energy is created in the structure. This has a positive impact on the lives of the residents. On the other hand, if the construction is faulty, the natural flow of the forces gets obstructed and distorted. And this might lead to misfortunes and misery of the occupants of the structure.
In Vaastu it is believed that there are basically two kinds of forces, which are equal and opposite in nature. The interaction of these two forces is cosmic decreed and brings forth a third type of force, which is called the ‘Bio-force’ or ‘Prana’, sine quo non for life to exist. The positive energy is subtle and fine while the negative energy is dark and dense. Depending upon a plethora of factors like levels, water bodies, door placement, windows, etc. either of the two forces can have a stronger presence in the structure.
If the structure is designed and built in such a way that the positive force far exceed the negative one then there is an advantageous release of bio-energy, which helps in keeping all the inmates healthy. If on the other hand, if the structure is fallible then the negative force overrides the positive force then we have a weak bio-energy field. And it manifests as misfortune and ill-health for the inmates of the building. Thus, it becomes imperative of use the science of Vaastu, which guides us about the rules we should follow so that our building has a positive ambience.
So, it can be stated without any reservations that by adhering to the Vaastu rules, we can gain a lot of benefits (physical, emotional, social, economic, mental, etc.) and can live in harmony with the nature.
