Vastu Granth

What is Vastu Shastra?

Vastu is the science of direction that combines all the five elements of nature and balances them with man and materials. It is all about the interaction of various forms of best effect on a living person. It aims to create an subtle atmosphere in which we can bring the best in ourselves. Like any other science, vastu is universal, rational, practical and utilitarian. It is not a religion but a science.

The principles laid down in Vastu were formed keeping in mind the influence of the Sun, its heat and light, energy, directions of the wind, the moon’s position, earth’s magnetic field, and the influence of cosmos on our planet. The system is a mixture of science of directions, astronomy and astrology.

The five elements of Panch Mahabhuta are Fire, Earth, Air, Water and Ether. Taking care of these elements is called Vastu Shastra. NorthEast direction is also called as " Eshan" or "Ishan" Corner or Vastu Pooja Corners or God's corner. The head of Vastu Purush is always in Eshan direction.

(Northeast) Eshan corner is the most important corner that gives all round development. If Eshan corner is loss the family suffers a lot and the members suffer with many problems, and if Ishan corner is clean, risen or extended then the family members position will gradually develop. They lead a peaceful and enjoyable life. This is the holiest direction among 8 (Eight) directions in Vastu Shastra. This direction should be open and less loaded when compared to all other directions.

History of Vastu Shastra:

Vastu Shastra is more than 5000 yrs old. We, humans built our luxurious houses keeping in mind the five elements of our environment. As the brains of humans began to become sharper they began to think about effects (good/bad) of environment on them as well as their houses. Our sages have written many books out of which Vishwakarma, Rajvallabha & VastuPadvinyas are the most ancient books. We also get more knowledge of vastu from many Puranas like Vayupurana, Matsyapurana, Agnipurana, Skandpurana etc. Vastu Shastra is totally based on Sun’s rays and its invisible energy. The seven rays of the Sun have different useful as well as destructive energy. Hence, from sunrise to sunset the different directions face different effects. The seven rays of the sun stand for the seven Gods Parjana, Kashyap, Mahendra, Surya, Satya, Bhrush, Nabhas. The sages studied the seven rays and according to their qualities given names like Kanchansam, Spatik Nirmal, Indraneel, Vaidryu, Padmarag, Vajrak & Brahmatej. These seven rays are also called as Seven Gods and a day is also divided into 7 parts like 1. Brahmamuhrat 2. Usha 3. Arun 4. Pratahsandhav 5. Madhyayan 6. Aprahan 7. Sayankal

3 to 4.30 am Brahmamuhrat Lord Indra
4.30 to 6 am Ushakaal Lord Kashyap
5 to 9 am Arunkaal Mahendra
9 to 12 pm Pratahsandhav Surya
12 to 3 pm Madhyayan Satya
3 to 6 pm Aprahan Bhrush
6 to 7.30 pm Sayankaal Nalas

In Vastu Shastra Vastu Purush is actively working in a house whether big/small, shops, temples etc. There are many entertaining stories related to Vastu Dev and its rituals for performing pooja in Matsyapuran.

In ancient times Andhak, a demon and Lord Shiva fought a war for many years. After killing this demon the sweat from Lord Shiva’s body took shape of Mahabhoot. He drank blood from Andhak’s body but could not satisfy his hunger. He did great penance and then he was granted a boon by Lord Shiva. He started to kill and eat all human beings and animals on the earth. Human beings, Demons and even God’s were afraid. They went to Lord Brahma. At that time God Brahma suggested them to make him fall upside down. 81 Gods managed to fall him upside down and settled on the different parts of his body. This Mahabhoot begged God Brahama and at that time God Brahma granted him a boon saying that whenever anybody builds a vastu at that time you will be worshipped by them and due to this you will give them health, wealth, peace and happiness and people who do not take your blessings will face lots of troubles given by you.

Many tales are found in many puranas. Another story is taken from our great epic Mahabharata. When Pandavas created Indraprasth, a vastu shastri named Maya had built Mayanagri on the order of Lord Krishna. In this Mayanagri in the centre was a square shaped pond. Maya had built the pond in such an artistically way that it looked like flat land. Duryodhan had fallen in it. Lord Krishna had known to himself that Kauravas will take away Indraprastha from the Pandavas hence he had ordered Maya to build a pond.

In Vastu if there is a well, or pond in the middle than the person who stays there is destroyed. Hence Kauravas were destroyed.

Even in Mohenjodaro and Harappa Civilization Vastu Shastra was used at a great level.

Existing Proof of Vastu Shastra:

India’s most financial aid giver temple “ Tirupati Balaji ” (Vyankteshwar Temple) is in Andhra Pradesh. This is a very ancient temple and its structure is built exactly on Vastu Shastra. This is not just a coincidence. The main entrance of the temple faces East. In the Eshan direction of the temple there is a pond and a temple of Varah Swami. In the Agni direction there is a facility of a Kitchen as well as Lodge for devotees and tourists. There are very tall mountains towards its West and South and in the East and North direction there are slopes on which gardens are grown.

Vastu & Plots direction Information:

In Vastu Shastra each direction has different importance. From the Eight directions Vastu Shastra has main eight rules as per:

  • The East Direction: It is Lord Indra’s direction and also the sun rises from this direction. This direction gives happiness, prosperity, fame. There are nine Gods in this direction:1. Ish 2. Parjanya 3. Jayant 4. Indra 5. Surya 6. Satya 7. Bhrush 8. Akash and 9. Agni
  • The West Direction: This direction belongs to Varun Dev. Varun Dev has rights on Rain and Water. Varun Dev is the main God. 1. Rog 2. Paap 3. Shesh 4. Asur 5. Varun 6 Pushpadevta 7. Sugreev 8. Nandi 9. Pitru. Among these Rog, Paap, Asur, Nandi and Pitru have krur energy. The house should not have main gate facing West.
  • The North Direction: This direction belongs to Kuber, who himself has lots of wealth and fame. In this direction: 1 Ish 2 Diti 3 Aditi 4 Shail 5 Kuber 6. Bhallat 7. Mukhya 8. Naag 9. Rog are all Gods which will give Happiness & Prosperity.
  • The South Direction: Yam is the main God, In all there are 7 gods 1.Agni 2.Pusha 3. Vitatha 4. Gruhxat 5. Yam 6. Gandharva 7. Mrugraj 8. Mrug 9. Pitru
    This direction is said to be not good for any good deeds .
  • The South East Direction: (Agni) In East and South directions Agni is there hence Agni is the main God. Havan, Hom and even putting Vastu Purush can be performed in this direction.
  • The South West Direction (Nairutya) It is in the corners of South and West direction. Nairuti is the goddess of this direction. This direction is not suitable for any good works as we do not get any results. Hence this direction should be used for storing heavy materials. It is not advisable to have any thing as Krur energy will be absorbed making it more dangerous for the human beings.
  • The North –West Direction (Vayavy) It is in the corner of the North and West directions. This direction is of Vayu devta, which is an important source for all humans as well as animals to survive. Hence very tall buildings should not be built and also tall trees should not be planted.
  • The North –East Direction (Eshan) This direction is in the corner of North East. The main God is God himself. Nothing should be built in this direction. Latrines, Waste store room etc should not be built. Wells, Underground tanks, Boring etc is very auspicious and gives very good results. There should not be any pits in the centre or even in vastu’s centre. The reason is Lord Brahma resides there.
