Vastu – Indian Feng Shui 1 Collected from: various researches and studies. “Vastu is the result of thousands of years of research and development, observing that one thing makes you ill and another does not.”- Laurie Baker, British architect. Why is it that we can’t wait to escape some places while others seduce us to stay? Vastu Shastra, India’s counterpart to Feng Shui, has the answer. Vastu believes that when we mould our environment in alignment with universal energies it moulds us into blissful beings. Conversely, residents risk disease, debt and disharmony if surrounded by sick elements. Vastu holds the key to opening a building’s positive energy and locking out negative energy. This ancient science promotes a positive living environment by giving easy and effective tips for site selection, room orientation, décor, landscaping and rituals to attract peace and prosperity into a building. Based firmly in science rather than superstition, Vastu assesses five main factors when designing a property. It considers the sun’s influence, the earth’s magnetic field, wind force, gravitational pull and celestial forces. A Vastu architect or sthapati combines a synergy of engineering, mathematics, art, astrology and astronomy to create a perfectly balanced building. The building is also designed with awareness of the nine directions and the five elements: ether, air, fire, water and earth. This energised form then becomes a conduit for surrounding forces allowing inhabitants to thrive in the aura of its divine protection just as a baby is nourished in a healthy womb. Vastu’s sacred effect is apparent in buildings following its guidelines such as the Vatican, St. Paul’s Cathedral, the Taj Mahal and Tirupati, the world’s richest temple.
