There is an invisible and constant relation between the elements outside and the people residing in a house. The Vastu factors influencing a site are topography, roads, surrounding structures, the Sun, Earth’s magnetic and energy fields, the cardinal directions and nature’s elements.
WHY DO VASTU FACTORS IMPACT A HOUSE?
Vastu believes that if man, building and the surrounding universe are in harmony, then man will be happy and healthy. But if the harmonics between these factors gets disturbed, our energies get dissipated in different directions leading to stress, tension and ill-health. Such an imbalance is caused by the improper positioning of rooms and a building with respect to the surroundings.
However, the right application of Vastu Shastra principles can create a balance between the building structure, the surrounding factors and the cosmos. As a result, this equilibrium between the internal and external energies, ensures a healthy body and happy mind which leads to health, wealth, happiness and success.
WHY ARE VASTU FACTORS STILL RELEVANT TODAY?
The surprising thing is that Vastu Shastra principles are applicable even today, though ancient India has changed from a simple, agricultural society to a complex, urban one. This is because the Vastu factors that impact humans have not changed over the centuries.
As an Architect, I am trained to take into account the local climate and weather conditions in designing comfortable spaces. Since these are the same as the above mentioned Vastu factors, it is therefore worthwhile to understand their importance the positive and negative effects on Man and how the positive effects can be used to advantage in the design of his dwelling.
