What is Vastu - All about Vastu

Do you know Nalanda University in Bihar – India, built in the ancient times when we did not know the words like Vastu or Vastu Shatra much in everyday life, would have Sunlight in each corner of the premises till the time Sun did not set? This is a miracle, which is nothing but excellence of Vastu. People are still researching as to what techniques or expertise were used in this Structure.

Vastu and Vastu shastra literally means – the science of architecture. Vastu is based on the traditional principles of Indian Architecture or maybe Buddhist beliefs to some extent. Vastu aims to integrate architecture with nature with different parts of a structure based on geometric patterns, symmetry, and directional alignments. Vastu is the collection and integration of ideas and concepts that make a structure most beneficial to the purpose for which, one is building it. Therefore, Vastu ideas cannot be rigid but would be flexible to reconcile with the purpose for which a structure is being built.

Vastu is also known as the science of dwelling. Vastu is as ancient as the Vedic period and came into existence with the building of ritual architecture. But then it gets extended to cover design and layouts for all premises/ architecture. Be it home, for business, commercial, utilities, public amenities, religious purpose, and likewise. But since the aim of Vastu is to plan any architecture to bring maximum benefits to its purpose, Vastu rules and guidelines would be different for each premise.

Connection between Astrology and Vastu 

Vastu and astrology have a direct connection whenever you want to build any premises. While Vastu gives you a detailed analysis of each direction's total cosmic energies for different usage, Vastu astrology helps you reconcile it with your birth chart. Let me explain further, each direction in the Cosmos is governed by a particular planet. Your horoscope is also governed by the nine planets in astrology. The Vastu astrology helps you create a balance between a particular planet's energy as per Vastu with the strength and weakness of each planet in your horoscope. Vastu Astrology even sometimes suggests in whose name and at what particular place, building a premise will be better for wealth and peace in life. 

Vastu shastra assigns all the eight prime regions of a particular house to a deity, and Vastu astrology further links it to the positive and negative aspects present in the horoscope of the person responsible for building the premises.

While Vastu guides you, which direction will be good for a particular usage, Vastu Astrology helps you to know how successful you will be able to build a particular premise. According to some beliefs, a strong Saturn in a horoscope helps a person overcome maximum difficulties in building their own house. Whereas the position of Saturn in some specific horoscope houses can bring troubles in a person’s life even though the design of the premises is fully Vastu compliant. Vastu is different for different premises depending on the purpose for which you are building a premise. In the same way, Astrology for Vastu helps you know how the premise would be beneficial or harmful for you, your family members for health, peace, & wealth. Vastu astrology also helps you to know if you would face some obstructions or time delays in making a premise.  

Now I will explain a bit more about the connection of Astrology and Vastu with different planets that ultimately govern the Vastu shastra guidelines. 

Sun rules the East, so Vastu astrology suggests keeping the entrance or windows in the east to get maximum energy of Sun. 

Moon signifies your mind, daughter, and mother, so one should not keep the left side of the premise dark and cluttered. As per Vastu astrology, a dark left side can create disturbances in mind and health issues for your wife. 

Venus and Mars, where Mars rules the Southern direction and Venus signifies the Kitchen, suggests that the kitchen should be in the Southeast. 

Mercury rules the north & common /living areas or areas used for visitors. It must have good light and ventilation, especially when such areas are close to your bedroom. 

Same way, Astrology for Vastu co-relates different planets like Jupiter, Saturn, Rahu, and Ketu for different directions for different usage like toilets, bedrooms, stores, eating places, almirahs, staircases, main door. 

One important take here is that Astrology for Vastu can differ for different usage and purpose for which any premise is being made. 

Vastu and Astrology has a close intrinsic relationship. Therefore, it makes a lot of sense to consult any good Astro-Vastu consultant before planning a particular building. A Vastu consultant may advise you based only on directions, but an Astro-Vastu consultant can co-relate it with energies of the different planets with their position in your respective horoscope also. 

Often, astrology for Vastu can help you adopt small Vedic astrology remedial measures even without visiting the premises physically and that too without demolitions. 

If you have any doubts about your Vastu for any premises, come & take my advice.

Is Vastu the same for all Premises

Vastu suggestions for one premise cannot be the same for all premises. But Vastu tips for one premise (same premises) can be different depending on the purpose for which one is making the structure. The purpose can be commercial, personal use, utilities, public services, and like that. And since the purpose of making any structure will be different, the Vastu for each segment of the premise will be different.

One may find that the Vastu tips for a structure for one purpose (say bed room) may differ entirely from Vastu tips for the same structure for another purpose (say Dining room).Therefore, I am giving Vastu tips for all premises/structure with different purpses individually. Here I would like to divide Vastu for all premises into two braod category.
