Benefits of doing Vastu Shastra
Vastu means dwelling of Humans and Gods in the original Sanskrit literature. Many factors govern the life of a human being; his fate, Karma and surroundings. BUT
VASTU CAN MAKE SWEET THINGS SWEETER AND BITTER LESS BITTER.
Like many of our traditions, Vastu too got neglected over the centuries for want of patronage; hence the present society could not very much appreciate and utilize this science in their construction of the house, shops, ofﬁces or industrial complexes. If construction is not according to the principles of “VASTU” then
This is one of the main reason for discontent and sufferings of society at present. On the contrary, if the laws of nature which are elaborated and incorporated in the science of Vastu are followed, then all the Divine powers support the thinking and action of the people associated with such concens.
Building a house in ancient India was not only a house-craft but also a sacred ceremony and the house was considered a living organism. The spirit of the house was called the Vastu-Purusha and different cardinal directions and sectors were assigned to different Gods like Brahma,
If the various activities in a house, shop, ofﬁce or industry are directionally channelized as per principles of Vastu, we begin to draw power from nature in a natural way. ONCE THIS IMMENSE FORCE OF ALMIGHTY BEGINS TO SUPPORT US, ALL OUR OBJECTIVES ARE FULFILLED IN EASY, SPONTANEOUS AND EFFORTLESS MANNER.
The Shastra is being gradually applied not only in Houses but also in Commercial buildings and industries, where the client’s stakes are high. For example, Vastu assigns the kitchens, chimneys, Fumace, boiler etc. to a certain comer on the basis of wind, directions to prevent the smoke and cooking fumes from ﬂowing into the living/working area and affecting the health of the residents/workers. Thus there is a great need for the architects and Vastu Engineers to coordinate; since an architect can build a posh house but can’t assure happy life to the people living in that house, whereas Vastu science assures peace prosperity and progress to the owner as also the inmates. This happy admixture of ancient heritage and modern science can go a long way in reviving this ediﬁce science.
In nutshell “Vastu” lays down principles for construction of the houses, commercial buildings, and industries etc., which harmonize with the neighborhood, nature and the entire universe
Many rules are common sense as they relate to ventilation and sunlight. But some like the subtle energy in natural and built environments that affect humans have also been veriﬁed and appreciated by those who did not believe in them initially.
Sun is the major cosmic entity which radiates light & heat in the entire universe. It is called self of the universe “SURYAATMA JAGATAS TASTHU KHASHCHA”. The principles of Vastu allows human beings & society with an inexhaustible source of energy and thus make them live in a fully satisfied manner. ‘
We live on earth, which nourishes all beings like a mother and is the treasure of all comforts & pleasure. The all-embracing motherly role of the earth is best tapped by use of principles of “Vastu”.
Along with construction. the internal decoration in the house, shop or factory is equally important. IF SETTING OF THINGS ARE ACCORDING TO PRINCIPLES OF VASTU,
THE THOUGHTS. SPEECH & ACTION ARE SUPPORTED BY NATURE AND LEAD TO HEALTH WEALTH AND HAPPINESS.
Vastu’s current revival may be conﬁned to human dwellings, but the scope of the Shastra, also known as Sthapatya-Veda extends to temple design, iconometry, town planning & civil engineering as well.
In addition to Karmas in this life, two things fate and Vastu affect the life of a person; each responsible for 50% happiness in life. If Vastu is poor the result as compared to efforts will be half even if the stars are exalted & the fate is very strong. As against this if “Vastu” is right and the planetary position is unfavorable than also the ill effects will not be so bad, as to that when both are poor. This means that if a house or industry constructed according to “Vastu” MAN’S DESTINY MAY BE CHANGED FOR THE BETTER.
