Why One Should Follow Vaastu?
Vaastu is nothing but the interaction of various forces of nature that includes the elements of earth, water, wind, fire and ether and their attempt to maintain symmetry to guide and influence the lives of not only humans but every organism on the earth. Our actions, fate, destiny and entire life is influenced by these forces. Vasstu shashtra is the awe-inspiring illumination of the surrounding and their influence on life. The literal meaning of Vaastu in Sanskrit is dwelling place and its doctrines to create an accord between the e1ements of nature.
Vaastu shastra is the combined study of science, architecture, astronomy and astrology. It helps to enhance our lives and can turn the face of negative effects in our life. It is an age old architectural science which envelopes the philosophical and theoretical works of structural design. It extracts its power from various forces of the nature like:
•Energy from Earth and Sky
•Light Energy and
The proper utilization of these energic leads us to pleasure, concord, prosperity and wealth in our life.
As we have architectural code and regulations these days to construct buildings and structures, our ancestors had their techniques evolved from Vaastu shashtra. According to the science of Vaastu, Vaastu Purush is referred as the god of architecture. Vaastu is not only scientific, but also based on a reason. It is permanently based on coordinates and direction which cannot be changed. It is very valuable, since it bridges the gap between man and nature is very practical and easy to follow. Following the guidelines of Vaastu in constructing their home, one can lead a healthy and prosperous life.
Vaastu can be followed in the construction of any structure like home, temple, shop, industry, town, planning towns, cities at any place on the earth: Life on earth begins with Sunrise and ends with sunset; hence the sun has its prominence in the life of every human being. It emits UV rays in the morning and IR rays in the evening which are very vital in the generation and of biochemical organisms, Nitrogen, Oxygen and Carbon Dioxide on the earth.
Our sun is an indication of illumination, will power and generosity. It influences every aspect of our life, right from our entire bio-system to survival. Hence EAST is considered to be auspicious and is believed that lord Indra is the master of this direction. North is also a favourable direction since the earths magnetic field moves from NORTH to SOUTH, thus sustaining the entire life on the planet?
Air (Vaayu), Water (Jal) and Fire (Agni) are the 3 forces responsible for harmony in one’s life. One should respect these forces and hold them in their respective areas t) avoid commotion in life. If the combination and purpose of these forces is interchanged, then it may lead to chaos in life.
Authenticity of Vaastu
The evidence of Vaastu can be seen in the epics of Mahabharata and Ramayana. Vaastu Shastra’s prominence and influence can also be seen in the earlier civilizations of MohenjoDaro and Harappa. Going back to the times of Mahabharata and Ramayana, there are a number of stories involving the origin of Vaastu Purush (the deity for Vaastu).
Research carried out on our mythological tales, reveals that Vaastu is a science and should be followed sincerely. Nature is affected by the geography of the area, hence Vaastu for every place is variable. There are countries which are very advanced while some are under developed. For example, Japan is an island located in the deep waters of North East, which is considered most favourable according to Vaastu. The eastern side of Japan is extensively broad and open. Thus Japan gets complete benefit from the Sunrays and is hence, rich and prosperous. To the South and Southeast, there is a sea with volcanoes due to which it had to undergo a nuclear attack. When it comes to Africa, Here Northeast corner is interpolated. Northwest segment is projected and South and Southeast have unlimited water which are not auspicious as per Vaastu. This can be a reason, why the African countries are deprived and backward. On the contrary, there is a Mediterranean sea to the North which is encouraging according to Vaastu. In the eastern side, the Nile river flows which is the reason for the development of civilizations in Egypt and other countries surrounding it.
Looking at our own country India, we have the Himalayas in the North and Northeast which is not good as per Vaastu. Hence we have lot of poverty in our country. We have water bodies to the Southwest and Southeast of our country due to which we had to face the assault of foreign empires. One thing which is very much favourable to our nation is, that it is slant towards East, which is very good for it.
Another example is the Taj Mahal, Which gained popularity all over the world, another monument similar to the Taj, called "Chandbibi ka Makbara" which is in Aurangabad is not so famous. Also this is one of the reasons why Tirupathi temple is renowned all over, while other temples located in the same province are less known, This is the power of Vaastu. All those monuments gained popularity were built as per Vaastu, while others were not. Hence to gain bliss, tranquility and affluence one need to follow the Vaastu.
Vaastu is a pragmatic science. Over a period of time, supported from the knowledge of Vedas and studies carried out on a number of monuments, temples, houses and buildings revealed the positive association between the relevance of Vaastu principles and triumph.
The same can be applied in constructing the present day buildings and other edifices.
Water in the Northeast is considered to be favourable and hence Mumbai has seen tremendous development. Also the city has a atomic power plant (Agni) to the Southeast, which is very propitious.
Another example is the Balaji temple, which was built according to Vaastu, had Water to the Northeast, Kitchen to the Southeast and the deity to the Southwest facing East and soon. Research on cities like New York, London,Singapore, HongKong etc. has shown that they were developed as per the principles of Vaastu.
