Many times I have been asked if Vaastu really works? And why this sudden awareness in Vaastu with everyone joining the bandwagon?

Well, Vaastu isn't unclear science or space technology that a lay person cannot understand. It is a subject linking man with nature that is both outside and within. Its principles are easy to follow. The resurgence of Vaastu has many theories behind it. Is it global competition that forces the corporate biggies to follow anything which offers a cutting edge or is it the placement of Neptune that spirituality is suddenly in and a lot of esoteric concepts are being talked about. I personally feel it is the availability of information in the print and electronic media (including the internet) plus thousands of books which information as the main cause. Don't forget that a few years ago the knowledge of this subject was confined to a learned few and handed down only by word of mouth.

It is interesting to note that Vaastu has come about at a time when a majority of the construction around the world is not Vaastu friendly. Such a scenario could easily suggest large scale demolition and reconstruction in accordance with the scriptures, which is not practical. Therefore, it is strongly recommended to follow remedial methods and harness the elements without making major structural changes.

But some people get carried away by myths that they have probably come across. East is the direction of inspiration, North of wealth, West is equated with retirement as the sun sets in that direction and South is also said to be the direction of shifted their entrances from South to North or have moved places. Some have even brought down their buildings because they were facing South or death. It is an irrational advice that they follow because if South is death then which direction offers immortality?

Some businessmen undertake major structural changes in their offices and spend large sums of money in renovations simply after reading a few books or articles on Vaastu. The result is most of them are unhappy. Do you know why? They forget that most books only speak of the ideal situation as mentioned in the ancient scriptures and not the practical application of knowledge contained therein. Answer this question honestly: When you fall sick do you read a book on medicine and start treating yourself or do you consult a doctor? Then how come after reading a book or two you start treating your office. Please don't follow quick fix solutions as they can be very damaging. The concept of Vaastu is a guide for linking man with nature which is both outside as well as within and the subject matter of this book is an effort to do the same.
