|Vaasthu - Introduction
The term Vastu is a Sanskrit
word which means "Bhu" or the Earth and is the underlying stratum
of existence.As per a Vedic Hymn "Vastu reva Vastu", all material
forms of the Universe are all energies.Vaasthu sastra states that
every energy has life and nothing in universe is left out without
any vibration.Every material in the Universe radiates some energy
at its own specific frequencies. This energy may be positive or
negative. Positive energy is beneficial and negative is harmful.
Vastu aims at maximising the generation and accumulation of positive
energy around the humans and minimise the negative energy. This
is done by ensuring the abundance of the following :
Light - Sufficient
natural light for comfortable living.
Air - Pure fresh
air continuously blowing in and out of the house.
Water - for drinking
Energy concentration of different
shapes and forms by using proper positive material.
The proper alignment of the rooms with
proportionate sizes harmonizes the energies and it gives peace of mind
to those who live in that premises.In short vaasthu harmonizes the cosmic
forces and makes life pleasant to live.
INDIAN TEMPLES - GLORIOUS EXAMPLES
The temples in India that have seen
more than 1000 years still stand undaunted as a marvel in architecture.
The technology adopted by the ancient architects is amazing. It is impossible
to erect such architectural beauties even with the help of today's modern
technologies. Almost all the Hindu temples that were constructed in India
several centuries ago were constructed acording to the principles laid
down by Vaasthu Shastra.
