How does application of Vaastu help us ?
First of all it would be wise to begin with the introduction of Vaastu as being purely a science and not a religion. Anybody of any caste, creed or religion may follow it to realize their desire for a harmonious, evolutionary and peaceful environment. The troubles and accomplishments that an individual experiences, can be categorized as being due to destiny, karma and the external environmental conditions i.e. Vaastu. It is a well known concept that the five elements of nature are the basis of all the creations in the world. It is important to keep these five elements balanced in our life to achieve happiness not only in terms of wealth but mental and spiritual growth too.
In Vaastu the North represents water (jal) , South is for fire (agni) , West is for earth and space (prithvi, aakash) and East is for Air (vayu). Vaastu is an application to harness and harmonize these basic five elements to bring bliss to one’s life. Vaastu helps us to draw the power from nature in the most natural way so that we are able to reach our full potential; the almighty supports us in a way where we achieve our desired objectives in an easy, smooth and effortless way.
Vaastu is applied to home and other commercial buildings too. Ideally vastu principles should be followed right from the planning stage of a structure but it also advices corrective measures later on. Majority of the corrective measures can be achieved without doing demolitions. The colors, artifacts, paintings and placement of rooms, carrying out different activities in various areas, everything effects our thought process; state of mind and thereby our actions and speech. Hence the atmosphere created by us should be such that our mind should feel relaxed, calm, and cheerful and the body should feel rejuvenated, strong and healthy. Vaastu helps you to achieve this “atmosphere” and the occupants automatically, think positive and respond to every situation positively thereby reaping positive results. So the importance of Vaastu in our life is immense and we can take its advantage tomake our life Happy.
