Vastu is an inherent energy concept of science. We cannot see energy with our naked eyes but we can realize and see its application in different forms and fashions. We all know that “upto the knowledge of mind is called Science and beyond the knowledge of mind is called Spirituality.” Hence, Vastu is not only a science, but is a bridge between man and nature.
The term Vaastu is a Sanskrit word, which means “Bhu” or the Earth and is the underlying stratum of existence. The word Vaastu means ‘dwelling’. It is a complete understanding of direction, geography, topography, environment and physics. It is the study that dictates the form, size and orientation of a building, in relation to the plot, soil, surroundings and the personality of the owner/dweller.
Vaastu is a part of Vedas, which is believed to be four to five thousand years old.Architectural science and equipment have undergone a sea change over the years. However, the principals of Vaastu, though modified to suit the modern times, still remain applicable.
Vaastu is the science of architecture. There are some basic facts as to directions and five basic elements that one must know. Direction of the house should be determined by facing the sun. Geographical directions are also important and should be followed. It should be kept in mind that when one exits from the house, one should keep to his right because in Vaastu vidya, entering from the left is not recommended. All work should be carried out with one facing either north or the east. Different directions are marked for different important daily routines as well as numerous daily religious and social rituals. That is why the household deity should be kept in these specified directions. The kitchen, bathroom and store-room should also be located accordingly.
Vaastu -Interior and Exterior Placement.
The art of Interior and Exterior looks, comforts, beautification, creativity and other like factors are the beautiful art works of architecture. A style, design, orientation of the looks and appeal are the important factors of interior and exterior works.
Similarly landscaping and Horticulture also play a vital role in the art of house building. The inside and outside land- scaping, external and internal green plantations and their beautification, appeal, pleasure giving factors are the important features of Vastu Science.
A better, aesthetic look of a building and its premises provides satisfaction and contentment to the resident as well as to the owner.
