Vaastu - The Perfect Way of Living

Vaastu Shastra is a vast ancient system as defined in the Vedas. The word Vaastu means to live or to reside. Though it has many meanings like vastava or actuality or lust, the meaning applicable to our subject is the right art of living with both desire and actuality.

The Universe is composed of five basic elements, Earth, Air, Water, Fire, and Space. Our body receives internal energies in the form of protein, carbohydrates, fats, among others and external energies in the form of heat, light, sound, wind, among others.

Similarly the house we live or reside, or the place where we work, manufacture or stock the goods, are also affected by its directions, earth, and space energies. These energies and the atmosphere around the Cosmic Mind or Higher Intelligence and the wave length of various powerful stars interact with mind and may make him imbalance and depressed.

The normal cycle moves in this way, water from the Earth evaporates into the atmosphere (spa) due to hot temperature of the sun. This water accumulates to form the clouds, which are carried forward by the force of the wind to make them to release their excessive water back to the Earth through rain. This is how equilibrium is maintained on the Earth. So is the case of our body and the place where we live or work, or store our goods, all should be in balance and this is the principle of Vaastu.

Even the temples or other religious places of worship have a special significance and follow vaastu seriously since their opening doors should have the normal flow of positive cosmic rays and keep the atmosphere clean from the breath of the mass devotees.

Where the house or the place of business has not been built keeping in the view the balance of the cosmic rays, it can prove unlucky on many angles and areas, like ill-health, disturbance and lack of prosperity.
