Indian Vastu Shastra - Articles Surfing

India is considered the mother of Vastu as the ancient saints have formulated various principles of it. It was written nearly thousand years ago where the sages kept in their minds the results of sunlight and energy and stabilizing all the nature's five elements in such a way to get the maximum advantage out of it. In India, it evolved around 5000 years ago and is considered a super science whereas the origin of Chinese Feng Shui was 3500-4500 years ago.

Basically, Vastu Shastra deals with the exercise of architecture and construction or building science and in fact it gives a fair touch in every aspects of life on the earth as well as the universe. The basic theme remains a link that is ever-present between the man and cosmos. The word 'Vastu' was originated from the term 'VASTOSHPATI' which had its usage in the Rig Veda and is said to render happiness, prosperity and protection in life and after death too. However, Vastu Shastra truly conceives in the presence of Vastu Purush, who is considered the main deity of a building.

Vastu Shastra is a science of directions and is a study that acquires an entire command over the cognition of directions. In fact, there are actually eight directions namely, northeast, north, southeast, east, southwest, south, northwest and west. It is entirely an Indian science of architecture and space and how environments and spaces are created supporting the spiritual and physical prosperity and health. This had evolved in India during the Vedic times and the concepts of Vastu Shastra were transmitted to South East Asia, Tibet and ultimately to Japan and China where the developmental base of Feng-shui originated.

One could find the proofs of Vastu Shastra during the periods of Mahabharat and Ramayan and also, its applications can be seen in the cities of Harappa and Mohanjodaro. According to the Vastu Shastras, when one worships, fears and respects the lords of all the above said directions, it considered that benefits and blessings would be showered on us. Moreover, saints have searched the Vastu Shastra and we make only researches. The ancient science helped a lot in getting the benefits freely that are offered by five basic elements of the world in which everyone lead their lives. The five elements of the universe are sky (Akash), water (Paani), wind (Vayu), fire (Agni) and earth (Prithvi). It is believed that Vastu Shastra is a perfect understanding of geography, direction, environment, physics and topography and is essentially the art of placing the correct settings in a manner that yields the maximum benefits.

However, the ancient scholars have said that the Vastu are based on both positive and negative powers, which constantly contacts with each other on the land's surface. It is in fact a good sign and gives good results when the positive energies are found more than the negative energies in the construction. It also gives more benefits to the inmates paving way to achieve a successful, wealthy, healthy and peaceful life. Hence, Indian Vastu Shastra goes a long way in understanding the effects and benefits and when they are followed with right notion, success follows every person.
