What is Vaastu?
Vaastu Shastra is a complete science and hence health is also considered . when we talk about health ayurveda is generally spoken about. We have to see how the “Panchmahabhoot” – the five elements affect us and how should we build our homes to get maximum advantage.
Our body is made of 5 elements and hence “Panchmahabhoot” affect ou body and mind. We build houses to protect ourselves from sun, rain and wind. We are actually creating barriers for the elements by building houses. But with human intelligence we can design our house in a manner which allows proper utilization of these five elements (sky, wind, sun, earth & water.
Effects of “Panchmahabhoot” are seen because of “Satva”, “Raj” & “Tam” on human beings. Satva means Brain creativity, Raj means Body Activeness and Tam means Lethargy. It is essential that “Satva” increases, which is available in the Northeast direction. Hence if windows to the northeast direction are big in area they will increase the Satva. Early morning sunlight has Vitamin D and UV rays which also increase the Satva Gun. Hence it is preferable to have the temple or study in this direction.
We will also see why the master bedroom should be at the southwest direction. The west and the south walls have to face heat and rains. To reduce the effect the walls of this direction are supposed to be thick and the windows small in area. As heat and humidity increases “Tam”Gun increases, hence there is letharginess in this corner. Hence the master bedroom should be here to help in good sleep and rest after a long tiring day. Northwest direction has more “Raj” which means activeness. This is good for kids to play, study and exercise.
In ayurveda person’s health is dependent on “Wata”, “Pitta” & “Kafa”. The Panchmahabhoot defines the human health. Some people have a combination of “Wata”, “Pitta” & “Kafa”. Northeast has “Pitta”, while Northwest has “Wata”. When these are not balanced there is a occurrence of various ailments. Earlier houses used to have a central courtyard which used to balance “Wata”, “Pitta” & “Kafa”.
When mind is not balanced it affects our work and if body is not balanced it affects our physical well being. It is hence necessary to have a balanced mind and body too. “Vaastushashtra” helps to balance all energies for our physical and mental well being.
We should generally avoid Northwest or Northeast for bedrooms, but is it quite necessary that the kitchen should be at the Southeast.
I provide consultation for your office/flat/factory. The consultation is a combination of both traditional vastushashtra and FengShui. After the study you get a 15-20 pages report, alongwith a coloured drawing which has all the instructions written on it. The report and drawing becomes a easy reference to make necessary changes. A copy of the report is also present with me if needed. There are 3 types of consultations provided-
1. Zero Money Change
This type of consultation is given when the client does not want to spend lot of money. Here advice is given to change the position of furniture, cupboards, and other movable things. As it is just rearrangement of things available in the house you do not need to spend money on it.
2. Phase wise Change
This consultation is given room wise, for eg the arrangement in that room, its flooring, colours used, curtains etc. these can be done as per the owners availability of time and money
3. Must Change
Sometimes if Vastushashtra demands then we have to go in for some civil changes. Sometimes we have to breakdown or construct few structures. But we try to keep the structural changes to the minimum, ss the advice given is a combination of Vastushashtra and Feng-Shui. As I am also in the construction industry I do not like to destruct already built structures.
