Blessiiings Vaastu







The Sanskrit word vastu means a dwelling or house with a corresponding plot of land. The vrddhi, vāstu, takes the meaning of "the site or foundation of a house, site, ground, building or dwelling-place, habitation, homestead, house". The underlying root is vas "to dwell, live, stay, abide". The term shastra may loosely be translated as "science, doctrine, teaching". Besides, some say that Vastu was one of the greatest architect and town planning expert ever produced by India who lived 2000 years ago. The king would send him for planning and establishing a town. This concept of Vastu is not highlighted anywhere.

In Indian architecture, the dwelling is itself a shrine. A home is called manushyalaya, literally, "human temple". It is not merely a shelter for human beings in which to rest and eat. The concept behind house design is the same as for temple design, so sacred and spiritual are the two spaces. The "open courtyard" system of house design was the national pattern in India before Western models were introduced. The order introduced into the built space accounts for the creation of spiritual ambiance required for the indwellers to enjoy spiritual well-being and material welfare and prosperity. The northeast quarter is called Isanya, the southeast Agni, the southwest Niruthi and northwest Vayu. These are said to possess the qualities of four respective devatas or gods—Isa, Agni, Niruthi and Vayu. Accordingly—with due respect to ecological friendliness with the subtle forces of the spirit—those spaces (quarters) are assigned as follows: northeast for the home shrine, southeast for the kitchen, southwest for the master bedroom and northwest for the storage of grains.

The Perception of Vastu Purusha

The Vastu Purusha Mandala is an indispensable part of Vastu Shastra and constitutes the mathematical and diagrammatic basis for generating design. It is the metaphysical plan of a building that incorporates the course of the heavenly bodies and supernatural forces. Purusha refers to energy, power, soul or cosmic man. Mandala is the generic name for any plan or chart which symbolically represents the cosmos.

The legend of the Vastu Purusha is related thus. Once a formless being blocked the heaven from the earth and Brahma with many other gods trapped him to the ground. This incident is depicted graphically in the Vastu Purusha Mandala with portions allocated hierarchically to each deity based on their contributions and positions. Brahma occupied the central portion – the Brahmasthana- and other gods were distributed around in a concentric pattern. There are 45 gods in all including 32 outer deities.

  • North- Kuber- Ruled by lord of wealth (Finance)
  • South- Yam - Ruled by lord of death – Yam (Damaging)
  • East- Indra - Ruled by the solar deity- Aditya (Seeing the world)
  • West- Varuna- Ruled by lord of water (Physical)
  • Northeast {Eshanya} – Ruled by Shiva
  • Southeast -Agni- Ruled by the fire deity – Agni (Energy Generating)
  • Northwest- Vaye- ruled by the god of winds (Advertisement)
  • Southwest- Pitru/Nairutya, Niruthi- Ruled by ancestors (History)
  • Center- Brahma - Ruled by the creator of the universe (Desire)
  • The Vastu Purusha is the presiding deity of any site. Usually he is depicted as lying on it with the head in the northeast and legs in the southwest but he keeps changing position throughout the year.
  • Vastu shastra prescribes desirable characteristics for sites and buildings based on flow of energy called Vaastu Purusha.
  • Energy is primarily considered as emanating from the center of the building. Many people believe that it comes from the North East corner but in fact it comes from the Brahmasthan or center of the building. It originates from subtle earth energy called Vaastu Purusha and subtle cosmic energy called Vastu Purusha which meet in the center of the building and then spread outward in all directions.

Zoning and rooms in any building to be made in accordance with the position occupied by the gods in the mandala. Some of these are:

  • North – treasury
  • Northeast – prayer room
  • East – bathroom
  • Southeast – kitchen
  • South – bedroom
  • Southwest – armoury
  • West – dining room
  • Northwest – cowshed.

Vaastu Shastra is the ancient Indian science of architecture, which governs town planning and designing of man-made structures. A part of the Vedas, the word 'Vaastu' in Sanskrit means 'dwelling', and in the modern context it covers all buildings. Vaastu relates to the physical, emotional and spiritual order of the built environment, in harmony with the cosmic energies.

Hindus believe that for peace, happiness, health and wealth one should abide by the guidelines of Vaastu while building a dwelling. It tells us how to avoid diseases, depression and disasters by living in structures, which allow the presence of a positive cosmic field.

• The eight directions in Vaastu Shastra represent different Gods and Planets. Accordingly Vaastu determines the particular position of the different parts of a building or structure.

Directions Gods Representing Planet Parts Of The Building/Structure
East Indra Lord of Lords Ravi (Sun) Entrance (Harbinger of good luck)
Southeast Agni Lord of Fire Shukra (Venus) Kitchen (Cheerful housewife)
South Yama Lord of Death Angaraka (Mars) Ghoulish Masks (To ward off evil)
Southwest Niruti Lord of Demons Rahu (Dragon's Head) Valuables (Prevents from being robbed)
