Vastu Shastra is a very old Indian science of Architecture. Ancient Indian sages and rishis created Vastu Shastra for the welfare of the entire humanity. Its knowledge enables us to get benefits of mental peace, health, wealth etc. and make our life happy.
Vastu Sastra is the ancient Indian treatise which laid down the principles of house construction – Architecture – to ensure the above. With superb practical sense and Divine wisdom, the ancient seers laid down the principles for constructing an ideal house. The principles take in to account the North-South flow of magnetic forces & the East-West earth motion and Solar energy forces to ensure that the house gets good light and wind and cosmic energy.
We gain great support and commanding on the five elements by following the guidelines of the ancient science of Vedic architecture known as ‘Vaastu’. Vaastu is the knowledge of how the energies of the five elements affect us through the structures in which we live and work. The reality of our times is that negativity greatly outweighs the positive. The design, placement and construction of buildings and properties is a defining factor in whether our lives are influenced in a positive or negative way.
The five elements
Out of the nine planets, our planet has life because of the presence of these five elements. The world comprises of five basic elements, also known as the Paanchbhootas. They are Earth, Water, Air, Fire and Space. Earth and Water have limited and localised availability for the human habitat and growth.
