Vastu

Vastu is an ancient Indian practice and system that aims at harmonious balance between man and nature thereby making for a life that is filled with happiness and prosperity. Vastu Shastra comes from principles that are based on a sacred space design system that aligns our architectural space with the influence of cosmic energies. Vishwakarma is considered the father of Vastu Shastra. This ancient practice evolved during the Vedic times and has spread to South East Asia and China and Japan.

Principles of Vastu Shastra

The natural elements namely the Pancha Bhootas (Earth, Space, Air, Fire and Water) are placed in harmonious balance. According to Hindu philosophy, Gods live in each quarter of the house and they govern the possessions and activities in that location. The underlying principle of Vastu is to revere and respect the lords of the eight directions so as to invoke their blessings.


The North is governed by Kubera- the god of wealth. The North-west is presided by Vayu - the God of wind. This location is ideal for storing food grains. Varuna - The Lord of the Cosmos governs the West. The Brahmasthan, the central core of the house is governed by Brahma - the Creator. This space is always left open.


The East is the direction governed by Indra whereas Agni - the fire God presides over the southeast making it the right location for the kitchen. Vastu is taken into account not just while building a house but also when choosing a plot. The shape of the plot, its topography and soil conditions play no small role in the application of Vastu principles.


The design and layout of Indian temples is based on the principles of Vastu. The gopuram, which is an integral part of South Indian temples, is built with special energy fields that bestow spiritual benefits to those visiting the temple. Geometric courtyards and symmetrical palaces built by the kings of yore reflect the basics of Vastu so that they absorb the positive vibes from natural elements.
