Article By: Ayesha Matloob

Vastu Shastra is the subtle science of eliminating negative and increasing positive energies in your surroundings. The principles of this ancient Indian art can be used to create perfect balance in your life and in this way attain prosperity and happiness in the long run. Indians believe that if a building is built and decorated using the principles of Vastu, then the Divine Powers (or Divine Power in the case of monotheism) above help you progress in life.


Origin Of Vastu Shastra

Indians consider the house a living organism with a spirit. This spirit or the Vastu Purusha is considered the soul of the house with its own energies. Even the land on which a house is built is believed to have vibrations or emit certain energies. This is why in Vastu, the act of building a home is also considered a sacred ceremony.


How It Works

In Vastu Shastra, it is believed that each Hindu God or deity that oversees different portions of a house. For instance, Agni the fire Goddess is responsible for the South East direction and hence the kitchen of the house is always constructed in the South East. Similarly, rooms for prayer and bedrooms are also positioned in a house on the basis of this concept.

The direction in which your house is facing also affects the quality of your life a great deal. A North facing house is considered highly auspicious. Although it is a common misconception that South facing houses are considered unlucky. South facing houses can prove to be lucky for people too but only if they follow some Vastu rules very strictly. East facing homes are considered second most lucky. West facing houses aren’t considered all that lucky and are slightly less preferred as compared to North and East houses.

It should be noted here that it is not the orientation of a house that makes it lucky or unlucky but the placement of the rooms, doors and the entrance door.

Vastu Shastra’s Impact

According to experts, Vastu Shastra can also be a cause of delay in your marriage. And for couples that are already married it is also believed that certain defects in a home can lead to a failed marriage and vice versa. Furthermore, it also affects your financial standing and with the right Vastu’s in your surroundings you can start earning more money than before. It directly affects the state of your marriage along with your prosperity and your happiness.
