A Brief Introduction

Vastu Sastra also Vastu Veda and Vastuvidya, "Science of Construction", "Architecture" is an ancient doctrine which consists of precepts born out of a traditional view on how the laws of nature affect human dwellings. The designs are based on directional alignments. It used to be applied in Hindu architecture, especially for Hindu temples, and covers other domains, including Vehicles, Vessels, Furniture, Sculpture, Paintings etc. The foundation of Vastu is traditionally ascribed to the sage Maamuni Mayan in South India, and Vishvakarman in North India.

While Vastu had long been essentially restricted to temple architecture, there has been a revival of it in India, in recent decades. The doctrine of Vastu Shastra is concerned primarily with architecture – building houses, forts, temples, apartments and other buildings


The Sanskrit word vastu means a dwelling or house with a corresponding plot of land.

The vrddhi, Vastu takes the meaning of the site or foundation of a house, site, ground, building or dwelling-place, habitation.

The underlying root is vas "to dwell, live, stay, abide".

The term Shastra may loosely be translated as "science, doctrine, teaching".

Vastu Vidya is defined as the Science of Con¬struction of a Building.

Vastu Shastra is defined as the Norms and rules of Vastu Vidya.

Vastu Shanti is defined as the rites performed while entering a newly constructed building.

Vastu Shilp is defined as the Rules and Regulations pertaining to the construction of a building.

Fundamental concepts

There are many principles in Vaastu Shastra which are used for proportional relationships in a building and conditions for maximum well being and benefits for the residents of a building.

Below are some of the basic theories in Vaastu Shastra.

Five elements

According to Vaastu Shastra, the world comprises five basic elements known as the pancha maha bhoota. Out of the eight planets, Earth has life because of the presence and balance of these five elements. The five elements are as follows.

EARTH (Bhumi) - Earth, the third planet in our Solar System, is a big magnet with North and South poles as centers of attractions. Its magnetic field and gravitational force has considerable effects on everything on the Earth, living and non-living.

WATER (Jala) - This is represented by rain, river, sea and is in the form of liquid, solid (ice) and gas (steam, cloud). It forms part of every plant and animal. One third of The Earth is full of water, likewise 1/3rd of our body consists of water.

AIR (Vayu) - As a life supporting element, air is a very powerful life source. Human life is dependent on correct humidity, air flow, temperature of air, air pressure, air composition and its content.

FIRE (Agni) - Represents light and heat which account for day, night, the seasons, energy, enthusiasm, passion and vigour.

SPACE (Akasha) - The Akasha provides shelter to all the above elements. It is also considered the primary conductor of all energy sources within the universe.

There is an invisible and constant relation between all the five elements. Thus, the person can improve their conditions by properly designing their buildings by understanding the effectiveness of these five natural forces. Vaastu Sastra combines all the five elements of nature and balances them with the person and the material. It takes advantage of the benefits bestowed by the five elements of nature to create a congenial living and working environment thereby facilitating spiritual well-being and paving the way for enhanced health, wealth, prosperity and happiness.
