Vastu shastra is a traditional Hindu system of architecture, which literally translates to “science of architecture”. Vastu is directly related to our lifestyle and has a deep influencing impact on our livelihood. On one hand, if accordingly constructed, bestow prosperity however, if not, may have devastating effects. Hence, it is advised to adopt vastu norms for construction of houses, buildings, offices etc. It is not always necessary to demolish the construction so as to improvise vastu. There are various methods which can remove vastu problems by practising simple rituals. The principles of Vastu Shastra are generally & basically covered under four categories, viz.,
1) Vastu For Plot : Vastu brings together art, astronomy, astrology and science. It helps in designing the layout and constructions, making it a congenial place or setting to work in and live at. The most important and initial step of any construction is selecting the right plot or the site. The selection of a plot is very important since the plot represents a fixed form, that will radiate positive as well as negative energies depending on its location, orientation, shape, slope and soil quality. Vastu Shastra, therefore, has given the utmost importance to selection of a right plot and has set down several significant principles. There are some important factors that one should always consider while looking for a plot and whenever possible one should always try to follow the Vastu principles as violation of these principles can destroy the happiness of one’s life. Therefore, be it home or corporate, for a happy, successful and prosperous life, being Vastu compliant is always appropriate and wisest.
2) Vastu for Home : Vastu for Home is a collective approach. Home is the place where a person or family lives and just not stays. Home is made up of passion, emotions and feelings like love and warmth. You are “emotionally attached” to your home, you love your home and share a harmonious vibration with your home and the home shares the same vibrations with you. At this point, you must understand that all the emotions are nothing but vibrations and vibrations are, in turn, nothing but expressions of energy. Hence home is the place with which a family or an individual shares their vibrations and vice versa. Till the time home and residents share positive energies with each other everything remains fantastic, but as soon as negative energies begin to prevail, things start to become ugly. A Vastu compliant home has the capability of ridding negative energy and accepting & even enhancing the positive energies. This in turn will always have a positive effect on residents and they will prosper, be successful, experience abundance and peace always.
3) Vastu for Office/Corporate : Vastu Shastra has been an ancient science followed by people since time immemorial to improve their overall wellbeing, particularly for professional success. Vastu doesn’t just apply to a home. Designing your workplace according to Vastu ensures bountiful output, good profit, and efficiency in work. Vastu compliant office maintains economic growth, tackles staff, helps make the environment serene and positive and clears the obstacles coming in the business. Good Vastu design helps you to reduce waste of time on unproductive things and reallocate for an important task. You will be able to think clearly and to be more productive at work. Vastu for industry ensures the successful running of business activities, leading to larger production and better monetary profits. Applying Vastu advice for industry can be of great help and also it paves way for prosperity in business. Vastu for commercial complexes can make a huge impact on the business of people occupying such premises. Vastu Shastra offers countless benefits if the construction is made using Vastu principles. Vastu of the workplace requires proper analysis and orientation of the business house. This report comprises detailed map analysis and required modifications/rectifications along with the remedies for a perfect Vastu compliant workplace. Although, the principles of Vastu are to be followed from the construction stage itself but if reconstruction is not possible, the remedial Vastu ensures, by slight modifications and rearrangements, a Vastu compliant work place.
4) Remedial Vastu : Vastu stands for “nature law” and ignorance of law is not an excuse anywhere. It is an inherent energy concept of science and uses scientific techniques, keeping in mind the laws of nature, elements in our universe and energy fields to ensure enhancement in health, wealth, prosperity, success and happiness. The purpose of Vastu is the positive confluence of two streams: the organic cosmic stream with passage from North to South and the Pranic cosmic stream with passage from East to West. North and East are source directions of organic and Pranic energy while South and West are sink directions of organic and Pranic energy. Very often, in residential and commercial spaces only one stream is available. In such cases the other stream is brought into the space by artificial means to create the positive confluence of the two. This is done by load adjustment, level difference, strong ventilation etc. Vastu remedies do not always require breakage/demolition and reconstruction of the premises. Often all that is required is Vastu rectification remedies like Pyra Vastu, Mirror therapy, Colour therapy, Plant therapy, Crystal therapy, Water therapy and Yantra therapy which comprises relocation of furniture, colour management, bringing in light and the use of crystals, pyramids, mirrors, bells and very importantly, water. All these factors combined together give an additional benefit to the seeker and the remedial Vastu is overall a sure shot way of living a happy and harmonious life.
