Vaastu is an ancient mystic science of designing and constructing buildings. Vaastu aims at restoring a certain balance between home and space which results in an overall growth in terms of health, wealth and happiness.
It also includes maintaining a proper balance between the “Panchmahabhoothas” or the five elements of life – Earth, Air, Water, Fire and Space. Earth is the only planet to have life. This is because of not just the presence of these elements but the right balance of these elements. Each of these elements comes with its own strengths.
Vaastu Shastra also talks of Vaastu Purusha Mandala. This is a mathematical representation of the property which calculates the energy grids.
Vaastu Shastra also addresses various energies present around us. Energies present around us that we can sense are gravitational energy, solar energy, electromagnetic energy, thermal energy, wind energy, light energy. They are also our life force energies. A free flow of these energies is to be attained for good Vaastu.
Vaastu Shastra gives a lot of importance to proper usage of colors. White light can be dispersed into a spectrum of primary colors – VIBGYOR. Theses primary colors are associated with certain strengths and properties. A proper understanding of them is a must before using strong colors around us.
