The word Vastu is word from Sanskrit. It means Bhu. This is the fundamental class
of existence. As the sun’s energy is concerned, the Eastern and western side are
important. The significance of the northern and southern side lies in the course
of magnetic wave that flows from northern pole to southern pole. So, the southern
portion of every house must be higher than northern portion.
In old age, human generally built as per Vastu and they lived in happy. At that
time the family members of joint family used to be very happy. But today picture
is exactly opposite. In spite of small family there is hardly present happiness.
As time progress, we began dismissing out ancient culture and custom. Vastu rules
also are ignored. Surprisingly the south Indian people still follow the Vastu rules
and they spend happy and peaceful life. They are more worldly and economically than
the northern Indian people.
The logic as well as its effects is permanent. The main purpose of the Vastu is
to create the life of men happier and trouble free. As the Vastu is based on the
properties of the sun and earth, it is universal. Vastu is equal for all religions,
If you build a house according to Vastu guidelines, you may lead a prosperous, happy
and healthy life.
Importance of five elements
It is very important to choose right land. As well as you also look at the accessibility
of water, environment.
Water must be drained out at northern eastern side. Tube wells, pools etc. must
be at the northern eastern side. The water which comes from toilet or bathrooms
must be drained out at the northern eastern side. This side is auspicious and suitable
for the water. There is gutter system in towns. The septic tanks must be at the
northern western direction. Rain water must be flown at the northern eastern direction.
Southern eastern side is ideal for fire. Cooking room, fireplace etc. must be located
only at this side. As northern western is at 180 degree of southern eastern side,
these might be fixed at that side.
Air must enter from the northern eastern part of the house. All media of air must
be at this direction.
The space acts upon greatly as per Vastu rules. We may get the mundane energies
effect continuously. But building is the obstacle to the effect of open space. So
the significance of lawns and roofs are underlined. In a traditional manner every
home of India has a free space at the centre of the house. It allowed the habitants
not only the free space but also the sunlight and ventilation of air.
