Vastu Shastra

Vastu is a vedic science pertaining to cosmic architecture based on fundamental principles of physics that every physical object has, in and around it, electro-magnetic field that influences and gets influenced by electro-magnetic fields of other objects in the vicinity.

It is a proven fact of medical science that electro-magnetic radiations and chemicals including what we breath in or eat activates neurocircuits, influencing gray cells of our brain, our thinking, our state of mind and our actions.

If energies of an individual are not harmonized with energies of his surroundings it will result into energy losses. The science and art of vastu shastra ensures optimum utilization of positive energies and deflection of negative energies for peace, prosperity and growth.

To have positive influences on any activity the pattern of energy influencing must be controlled through proper arrangement of things around us. and this is vaastu shashtra.

It is a fact that any area where we live or doing our acts is actually in a shape of a man, called “Vaastu Purush“. Vastu Purusha is present in each and every plot whether it is big or small. It has a fixed and peculiar body. Its head remains hanging down and its body is spread all over the length and breadth of the ground.

You will be known as ‘VASTUPURUSHA‘. You will tease the people who construct buildings and temples, dig wells and tanks on the side towards which you see and in the direction towards which you hold your feet, to your heart’s content. You may trouble and even devour those people who construct the aforesaid buildings and temples etc. in the direction where you lay your head and back and those who lay foundation stone without worshiping you or without satisfying you with ‘Homa’ and the like. Then the Vaastu Purusha was quite satisfied. Since then the worship of Vaastu-Purusha has been in vogue and it has become compulsory for those who want to construct any kind of building.


You choose homes to live in, select places for establishing their business/factory, own a lodge, marriage hall, auditorium, hospital and above all a place of worship. Therefore, it is very important to strictly adhere to the rules laid down in the Vasthu Sashthra while constructing the required structure.

And one of us has got different favourable directions, facing which our body absorbs the energy to execute the job we are doing perfectly. Thus for the sake of purchasing plot, sitting in office and other business official trips, this direction must be used. Example
