Why is Vastu Shastra Important?
Behind each action or output, our main purpose is to create Joy.
To achieve this, ancient yogis (masters) practiced four major subjects:
Meditation for mind body.
Ayurveda for physical body.
Astrology for personal beneficial information.
Vastu Shastra (Science of architecture) for space we reside in, be it residential or commercial.
Yogis created the state of balance by paying attention to the five elements (Water, Air, Fire, Earth and Space) which are the tools governing and interconnecting these above mentioned subjects. Each element represents different attributes on each platform, but their nature remains the same.
For example the nature of fire is heat, identification, uplift, shape, aggressiveness, purity and knowledge, but here are a few attributes of Fire which differ as per the subject:
MEDITATION - Fire is governing manipura chakra.
PHYSICAL BODY - Fire is governing acid.
ASTROLOGY - 2 Planet, 3 signs and 6 constellations are governed by fire.
VASTU - Fire is governing South east, South of south east and South direction.
Just like Yoga (meditation) is practiced to balance elements of chakras to experience joy and peace of mind, Ayurveda to create balance in elements for physical body to live healthy, Vastu Shastra - Science of architecture, is to balance elements of dwelling we reside in.
To create joy in all aspects of life and to live in flow with nature we should use this science to design custom, new or existing residential properties and commercial buildings, as well while selecting interior decor for residential and commercial dwellings.
