What is Vastu shastra

Vastu shastra (vāstu śāstra) is a traditional Hindu system of architecture which literally translates to “science of architecture. These are texts found on the Indian subcontinent that describe principles of design, layout, measurements, ground preparation, space arrangement and spatial geometry. Vastu Shastras incorporate traditional Hindu and in some cases Buddhist beliefs. The designs are intended to integrate architecture with nature, the relative functions of various parts of the structure, and ancient beliefs utilizing geometric patterns (yantra), symmetry and directional alignments.

Vastu Shastra are the textual part of Vastu Vidya, the latter being the broader knowledge about architecture and design theories from ancient India. Vastu Vidya knowledge is a collection of ideas and concepts, with or without the support of layout diagrams, that are not rigid. Rather, these ideas and concepts are models for the organization of space and form within a building or collection of buildings, based on their functions in relation to each other, their usage and to the overall fabric of the Vastu. Ancient Vastu Shastra principles include those for the design of Mandir (Hindu temples) and the principles for the design and layout of houses, towns, cities, gardens, roads, water works, shops and other public areas.

Vastu is one of the most ancient sciences of architecture and is composed of specific rules, regulations and directions, set down by sages of the Vedic times. Vastu shastra considers a house to be a living soul, having prana. Vastu Shastra is based on science since Feng Shui is based on local geographic considerations and traditions. In Vastu Shastra, the North direction is generally regarded as auspicious because it is regarded as a source of magnetic energy. The East direction is also regarded as auspicious because this direction is the source of solar (sun) energy.

Working of Vastu
In Vastu Shastra, the cooking stove in the kitchen should generally be placed on the right while the sink should be placed on the left, sleeping with head pointing to the South or East directions is considered auspicious. In Vastu Shastra, big or heavy furniture like sofa, TV, radio equipment, etc should be placed at the South or Southwest sector of a house. This will leave more space in the North and East area – considered auspicious.

Vastu works on three principles of design that cover the entire premise.

  • The first principle is Bhogadyam, which says that the designed premise must be useful and lend itself to easy application.
  • The second principle is Sukha Darsham, in which the designed premise must be aesthetically pleasing. The proportions of the spaces and the material used, in the interiors and exteriors of the building – ornamentation, color, sizes of the windows, doors and the rooms and the rhythms of projection and depressions – should be beautiful.
  • The third principle is Ramya, where the designed premise should evoke a feeling of well being in the user.

Five elements of Vastu

In fact, the real masters say that if you have been having a satisfactory life in the terms of health, wealth and relationships, your house is utilizing all the energies properly, so do not disturb it. Also, they warn against generalizing of the good and the bad directions, as these directions vary from house to house and person to person. Vastu Shastra believes that just like humans, a building has a life that weakens after some years. Therefore, to rejuvenate it, the resident must do a Vastu pooja every 30 years. They both utilize the five elements; however, Vastu uses earth, water, fire, air and space.

Believers in Vastu claims that home built on that tradition promise the well being and welfare of its dwellers. Only if you are happy in your dwelling place you can find success in life and workplace.
