The truth about Vaastu

The Granth (book/volume) named Vaastu is a gift of the present era, whereas, according to the account mentioned in the Puranas of the Hindu faith, Vaastu was the name given to the being born off the sweat that was worked up during a duel between Lord Shiva and the demon Andhakasura. There is a tradition in fact of dedicating the first oblation of a homa to Vaastu.

There are two forms of energy, which can be easily felt: one in the shape of atmospheric pressure, and the other as the force of gravitation. The effects of the twain are experienced at various places with variations, all over the planet. Wherever there’s an abundance of the gravitational pull, the atmospheric pressure is lower on the scale, and vice-versa. The reality of each particular spot functions on this very principle. The same rule was named Vaastu. There are three states of atmospheric pressure and force of gravitation:

  1. Excess of atmospheric pressure
  2. Excess of gravitational pull.
  3. Equilibrium between the two.

It is believed that it is on the basis of these three conditions that the physical build of a child develops as small, medium or average; thin, heavy or normal; fair or dark. This principle applies to all living beings. Vanaspati (vegetation) works converse to this. Where there are tall trees, children are born dwarfish, and where the vegetation is stubby, infants of those lands are born taller. At certain places, where gravitation and atmospheric pressure are in equilibrium, newborns and trees grow to similar proportions, either equally tall or equally short. The principal holds that the scope of Vaastu pervades from minimal to comprehensive states.

From the solar system to Earth; to the segment of the nation on Earth; to the situation of provinces within the nation; to villages and cities within provinces; to the placement of allies and homes in them; to the rooms within buildings, the beds placed therein to the tables; Vaastu has principles for all! These principles exhibit the same effects be it any circumstance. The principles and laws of Vaastu were quite simple and general at its inception. From almost the last 25 years though, a heavy augmentation to the rules has been effected, which has resulted in the complication of the same. If one furnishes and decks one’s home, shop, office, factory considering the basic outlay and personal convenience, then Vaastu Dosha (ill-effect of unsound vaastu) cancels out by default. This is because the waves or vibrations produced by an individual’s heart and mind become panacea for all doshas. We’ve been hearing it since the past that blessings and curses always reach fruition; this suggests that one’s bhakti and focus are above Vaastu and prove beneficial in every circumstance, state and fortune.

The savants of Vaastu today deem south-facing houses, shops etcetera as inauspicious, whereas, Goddess Lakshmi’s (the goddess of wealth) haven is in the south. If ordinary beings are to experience, they will discover that the areas to the south of Delhi, of India and even of America are the most prosperous and are remarkably affluent. One shouldn’t lose one’s calm by giving into the baseless laws of vaastu. The common man must understand one thing, which is that Vaastu can never act as the obstacle in one’s fortune.
