"Vastu" is the science of building and essentially the art of balancing nature with man-made environment and correct placement of man in such a manner so as to get the maximum benefits of the energy emanated by natural and man-made environment. Vastu can fruitfully be applied to the areas of our activities. We should initially concentrate on areas, which affect our life, i.e., where we live and work. We all care about our homes and spend time, effort and money, trying to make them more comfortable. For most of us it represents one of the biggest investments we ever make. Our home (the architecture of our homes) can damage our health, the air we breathe and the water we drink, without our even being aware of it. Similarly, at the places where we work, environmental stresses contribute to overall load, preventing us to reach our full potential. Resisting these external forces becomes more important for growth and development. We are enveloped by a series of environmental hazards in our day-to-day life, which leads us to inevitable and endless physical and mental disorders. Harmony with the environment, peace for the spirit and health for the human beings are the criteria for healthy homes. These have deep roots in the human experience and in traditions of home building, according to the cultures across the world. This section provides basic concepts of Vastu principles and deals with:
The principles of vastu are simple. "The East is the direction of Knowledge, Southeast is the direction of Fire, South is the direction of Death, Southwest is the direction of Devils, West is Rain, and Northwest is Vayu or Wind force."
In Vastu, the concern is in how the structure or compound affects the natural energy field, not so much how the flow affects the inhabitants. The worse the vastu or the less suited for habitability, the more rapid the ill effects.
In today's technological world, if manmade environment is not found in consonance with nature, it can be studied with the help of modern instruments and rectified with the ways and means available, without damaging the existing structure.
This will shed some light as to why a certain house or site may appear to be jinxed or is repeatedly up for sheriff sale, etc. In many cases, making a few corrections to the plot level will alleviate the problem for future generations.
