Vaastu Shastra is an ancient science of architecture and construction. Vastu is a science that has originated from India. The Sanskrit word vastu means a dwelling or house with a corresponding plot of land. Vaastushastra says that if the structure of your house is so designed that the positive forces override the negative forces so that the family members lives a happy and healthy life.
It is the science of direction that combines all the five elements of nature i.e air, fire, water, sky and land. The proper knowledge of all the eight directions are also very important for a vaastu expert i.e North, Northeast, East, Eastsouth, South, Southwest, West, Westnorth . Vaastu increases not only its life span but also improves the condition of occupants.
One must follow Vastu from the initial level i.e. from choosing a plot to shift in the house. Everything should be done according to Vastu principle since Vastu is not merely a word but it is a science and a bridge between man and nature.
Like many of India’s ancient science and knowledge, vastu shastra also got neglected and received very less attention over centuries, hence today’s fast paced society has very limited or no knowledge of vastu and find it difficult to appreciate and use the benefits of vastu
