Vastu is an Art
Vastu Vidya is one of the most valuable treasures. The word vastu means to dwell and vidya means science, so Vastu Vidya is the sacred science related to designing and building houses. The classical literature on Vastu is vast and scattered. Vishwakarma Vastu Shastra, Mandana Sutradhar, Samarangana Sutradhar, Mayamatam, Brihat Samhita, several of the Puranas and Agamic work deal with the subject in great detail. Vastu Shastra is directed at harmonising external space with the internal space within man. Vastu aims to restore the balance between the home that is the microcosm and the cosmos that is the macrocosm, bringing health, wealth and happiness. According to Vastu, the external and the internal are interchangeable, such as wind or fire, are the same as those that control the organs of the human body. Vastu states that when buildings and forms echo the underlying cosmic principles, they become a part of the basic structure of the universe and vibrate in harmony with it. These positive vibrations have a direct effect on the inhabitants. They found that various energies that run around us in a particular pattern could be harnessed such that they resonated positively with the individual being or the people residing in the building to make their lives meaningful and harmonious. Vastu contains the hidden key to realigning the home with cosmic principles such as solar energy, the movement of the celestial spheres, the magnetic field of earth, gravity and the influence of the moon and sun. It offers a holistic approach to the design and layout of houses. Vastu Shastra advice should be solicited while selecting a plot or a house, while building a house or while carrying out any renovations, additional construction, expansion, restructuring of the house, shop or office. Vastu corrections can be helpful if you are facing problems like low sales, low profits, disputes, accidents in your office, factory or shop, or when you are facing problems like ill-health, marital problems, poor career growth and disturbances of family peace in your house. The science of Vastu can be helpful even for these people by making simple corrections and changes in the interiors of the house leading to better energy flow and positivity in the house. Vastu is for the betterment of mankind and brings love, peace, prosperity and contentment within a household. Vastu is much more relevant today than it was ever before. Traditional medical disciplines like Ayurveda lead to kaya kalpa, transformation of body, yoga and meditation lead to mana kalpa, the transformation of mind and Vastu Shastra shows the way to bhagya kalpa, the transformation of fortunes.

Remedies and Solutions
Vastudosha is a flaw or deficiency in the known characteristics of the eight directions. Remedial Vastu or corrective measures for any Vastu faults should be attempted only after a proper understanding of the fundamental rules of Vastu Shastra. The remedial can be divided into those applying to different stages of construction and can be implemented at either pre-construction stage or at post-construction stage. At the pre-construction stage, the measures can be to rectify inauspicious shapes, slopes and depressions in the plot, observing proper pre-construction rituals, overcoming obstructions faced before construction or while construction. Strictly followed, Vastu Shastra forbids demolitions/alterations or structural changes once the construction of a house is complete, deeming them to be a mutilation. At the post-construction stage, the corrective measures can be in the form of building additional structures, increasing the height of the building in relevant sectors, relocating the main entrance, etc. to balance the flow of energies in and around a structure. The measures at this stage also involve tackling obstructions and vedhas to the main entrance, Interior planning and proper distribution of elements in the interiors. In addition, the use of astrological remedies like mantra, yantra and planting of auspicious trees and herbs around the building can yield positive results. In many cases. People’s may be rich, living in a big house, but peace, happiness and good health elude them. The house they live in may be big, opulent and full of expensive things, but the usage is improper. At times a change in fortunes happens when people carry out changes, renovations and extensions in the existing house or buy additional land adjacent to their property. Depending on the direction in which extensions are carried out the change can be for the better or for worse. As a rule, all extensions towards south, south-west, west, southeast or north-west of your site are considered inauspicious. Buy any additional land, which is to your north, east, or north-east. At times you by a Vastu-perfect site or house but over a period of time, the area surrounding your house changes. A changing city or neighbourhood affects your fortunes. A tall building that comes up on your east blocks out sunlight. A nearby slum or a new temple on the same road as yours can spoil the vastu of your home. Suddenly increased traffic because of the road outside your house being connected to the main road, noise, smoke, blocked drains or shrinking parking space around your house, all affect the vastu of your home. Sometimes a rising road in front of your house or shop can bring bad results. Over the years, roads are re-metalled so many times that their level becomes higher than the house or shop. The elevation of the

apnaghar.co.in

road can make the house look sunken. Most of the times this is very unlucky because Vastu Shastra says that land before a house or workplace should slope towards north and west facing plots and houses, Similarly, a newly constructed flyover in front of your office, shop or house can spoil your vastu as it blocks sunlight and air. In certain cases like these, extreme measures like shifting home or workplace are the only options available. In certain cases, you may not have any control over any changes in your neighbourhood environment. Fortunately, in most of the cases such extreme steps as selling off your house or property are not required. As mentioned earlier, Vastu followed rigidly does not allow alteration or structural changes after the construction is complete as it is considered a mutilation. In the modern context also, structural changes are resorted to only in extreme cases. A Vastu expert does not recommended demolitions when easy and practical changes can bring about necessary balance and harmony in a structure. Simple remedies like changing the seating arrangement, opening a window, changing an entrance or shuffling rooms between the family members can bring about positivity, happiness and prosperity in a household.

Screen WSW Correcting the Main Entrance Vedha Opposite the Main Entrance In case of an obstruction like a big tree, pillar or lamp-post opposite your main entrance, try to shift the main door. In case it is not possible, plant one or two auspicious trees between the house and the obstruction. You can also plant a hedge or erect a fence to reduce the effect of the obstruction. Alternatively, two lights can be erected on poles, one on each side, between the tree and the front door. A Vast Yantra can also be installed on the entrance. Main Entrance Constricted and Cluttered First impressions are vital. If the front door needs painting and there is a collection of shoes, boxes or dead plants by the entrance, it generates negative feelings. If, on the other hand, the entrance looks clean, uncluttered and welcoming, you feel more positive. The front door should open onto a bright, well lit room, giving a glimpse of the house. If the front door opens onto a small confined and constricted lobby area, the level of energy is also dampened. The remedy for this is to use mirrors on the eastern or northern walls, whichever is longer, to create an effect of spaciousness and width. The mirror should be large enough so that it does not appear to cut off the heads of family members and visitors. The mirror in this position widens the entrance area and encourages the energy inside. It can be a good idea to place the mirror above a small side-cabinet or another piece of furniture. Fresh flowers or decorative items could be placed on top of this to attract good luck. The interior should be well lit. Depression and disease stalk in stuffy, ill lit and ill ventilated areas. The remedy for this is to increase the amount of light in the entrance area. By lighting up the area, depression gives way to positive attitudes and disease to good health.

Back Door Exactly Opposite the Front Door The back door should not be visible and exactly opposite the front door. In such a case, change the position of the back door. Alternatively, a screen can be put up to conceal the back door. Crystals or wind chimes can be hung up immediately inside both the front and back doors to encourage the energy to circulate. Main Entrance Facing a T-junction Any roads heading directly at the front door are matter of serious concern. In such circumstances, it is better to position the gate so that it is not in direct alignment to the road. Failing that, a Vastu Yantra can be installed on the gate. Light a night-light over the Yantra. A pa-kua mirror above the front door can also remedy the situation. Planting a hedge or erecting a fence can also be effective. Toilet opposite the Main door Toilets should not be located in front of the main door. The toilets are the negative areas in a house and must not face the main entrance. If there is a toilet opposite the main door, change the entrance of the toilet. If this change is not possible, place a sideboard or another piece of furniture or a large plant between the main door and the toilet to prevent the auspicious energy entering through the main door from draining down the toilet. Another fault is to have the toilet close to the main entrance. Since the toilets are the negative areas in a house, they contaminate the good energies coming from the main entrance. To rectify the fault, shift the door of the toilet to any other side, away from the main door. Main Entrance below the Street Level It is inauspicious if your front door is situated below the street level. This tends to constrict the prana, i.e. the life-giving energy and tends to make the occupants lackluster, lethargic and feeling unsettled and trapped. To remedy this, keep the entrance well lit and have live plants close to the front door. Energising the Main Entrance There are lots of simple and inexpensive ways of adding interest and personality to the main door. One can paint the front door in a fresh new colour or can simply replace the door handle and door knocker with shiny new ones. To add life to the entrance, add decorative plants in pots or urns to the steps or on either side of the door. The front door

should never be directly lit. This is most unwelcoming. Have a light just above the main door illuminating the entrance. Hang an interesting picture or painting near the front door. If the entrance is in the north, hang a beautiful metallic bell or wind chime outside. For a main door located in the south east, keep a picture of greenery. An east entrance can be energised by a picture of sunrise bringing name, fame and success to the inmates. In order to energise an entrance on the west, you could place a brass door handle or metallic pots on which plants can be kept. Front doors on the northwest signify a lot of opportunities for travel, while those in the west are for good luck and fame. For a south-west entrance, place an idol or photo of Lord Ganesha on the top of the door from inside. North-east is an area connected with mental peace and educational success. If your main door is in this direction keep a beautiful pictures or statue of Lord Ganesha facing the entrance. Keep the north-east entrance as clean and clutterfree as possible. Guests, visitors, domestic help and delivery boys visiting your house bring with them their individual aura, vibrations and negative or positive energies which may or may not be in harmony with you or your household. Placing a plant on either side of the front door with salt hidden in the soil would suppress all negativity. Salt has the property to absorb negative energy, thereby preventing it from entering into the house. Replace the salt after every ten to fifteen days. If the entrance door is in the north, north-west or west, place the salt in tiny metallic pots hidden in the soil of the plants. If the entrance is in the south, east, south-east or south-west, place the salt in tiny earthen pots hidden in the soil. Display your nameplate prominently. Have the letters beautifully and prominently inscribed in proper legible size. Make sure to place it at such a height that it is above the head of the tallest member of the family. The entrance of the house is the doorway to the entire household, welcoming the positive energy inside from where it can spread all over the house. It is, therefore, crucial to keep it welcoming, cheerful and energised.
