It is the ancient science of life according to the laws of nature. Human life is not only affected by his work but also by power and forces of nature. Among them vastushastra is one such power. If ones stars are good but he / she does not follow vastu, then the difficulties may not be so crucial but if the stars are not good and that he / she does not even follow vastu, then it may lead to lots of difficulties. Vastu can be like an umbrella in a downpour.
Now, a possible question arises that what vastushastra is ? vastu is derived from a Sanskrit word “vas” meaning ‘to live’. It can also be related to the word ‘vastu’ and ‘vaasna’, meaning ‘to lead a life on the basis of reality’. There are many powers in the universe which impart positive and negative energy. Vastu helps in destroying negative energy and adopting positive energy.
As the sun’s energy is beneficial to all of us, in the same way vastu positively affects everyone’s life. Our body and universe is made up of five elements – Fire, Water, Air, Earth and Sky. In the same way directions are made from the sun i.e. East, West, North and South and intermediate directions i.e. North-East, North-West, South-East and South-West. The principle of vastu is to maintain a balance of the five elements in all directions. By following the principles of vastu, one can attain peace of mind.
