Vastu - The Interesting Story

Vastu Sastra is a 5000 year old Indian science of dwelling found in the Vedas- the ancient Indian scriptures.  How did Vastu shastra originate? There is a very interesting story behind it. Legend has it that the Vindhya mountains that separate the north and South of India had the tendency to keep growing so as to obstruct the Sun, Sage Agastya the renowned sage jouneyed from the Northern part of India to the south.  On the way he met the mountain and requested him  to give way since it had now become impassable.  

The mountain in reverence in the Sage bowed low.  Now Sage Agastya and his disciplines and family passed from the North to the South.  The Sage told the mountain to remain so until his return.  Agastya settled permanently in the South.  It is believed that from this incident the Vaasthu Sastra was born.  That is why people ask you to follow the North to South pattern in many things you to at home.

Vastu Shastra is comprised of two words - Vastu, which means the dwelling placeof humans, and Sastra, which means 'science'.  In other words, Vastu sastra is the science that deals with human dwellings.  It is believed that anyone observing the principles of Vastu Shastra in any enclosed space will be blessed with health, prosperity, happiness, joy, peace of mind and love.  A dweller in harmony with the environment will enjoy a less stressful life.

Vastu is based on the arrangements and balancing of the five elements, - ether, air, fire, water and earth in their proper order and proportions.  It focuses on the law of nature and flow of energy and anyone living in tune with the cosmic forces will enjoy beneficial energy flowing into their property.  Vastu Shastra is an ancient Hindu architectural practice, which involves the construction of buildings in harmony with the natural forces, for the welfare of mankind as a whole.  It is a rich Indian philosophy, which has got its roots in a number of ancient works, including the Vedas.

Vastu shastra is an age-old traditional practice, which is followed to bring health, wealth and prosperity in the life of a person.  It is a science of directions that has man as its central part.  He is considered as the subject, object and cause of architecture.  Vastu acts as the balancing force between man and nature.  It gives advice for almost everything right related to a building.  The study of Vaasthu owes its origin to India and follows Indian culture, traditions and climatic conditions.
