The Effects of Spiritual Vibrations in the Home (Vastu Shastra)

23 April 2015

Vastu Shastra is an ancient science of architecture and construction derived from texts found on the Indian subcontinent. This science has paved all its way from ancient history of the vedic ages to the present day technology used by architects and builders. Vastu Shastra is not a myth or any kind of magic; instead it is the science of vibrations and energy contained in each single component that came into existence on this earth.

The basic rules of Vastu Shastra are in accordance with the nature’s laws. These natural laws are meant to maintain a balance or equilibrium between human life and nature.

Vastu Shastra considers important the understanding and proper use of the five basic (or subtle) elements called the “Panch Maha Bhootas” (aka, Pancha-Mahabhutas) of which the world is comprised of. They are:

1. Earth (Prithvi)

2. Water (Apas)

3. Air (Vayu)

4. Fire (Tejas)

5. Space (Akasha)

Each of these elements has its own energy and it radiates its particular energy at its own specific frequency. This energy can be either positive or it can be negative. Vastu Shastra acts a conduit or bridge which paves the way for all the positive energies to enter into our life.

By understanding the rules of Vastu Shastra and working in accordance with them, appropriate alignment of each section during architectural design will harmonize the cosmic forces and make life more pleasant for those living in such a structure.

The Sanskrit word vastu means a dwelling house or home, Shastra means teacher. Each of us has a place we like to call home. The kind of home we live in can be very different based on the lifestyle of those living there. Depending on certain factors like where we live and the environment, how our house is built, how it’s maintained etc., our home can give off different spiritual vibrations too.

By improving the spiritual vibrations of our homes we can enjoy many positive effects, such as increased financial security, improved relationships between those living in the home, more happiness among residents, and less obstacles to spiritual practice done by those in the home.

In a nutshell: Vastu Shastra is a Vēdic science that clarifies and explains the difference between pleasant and distressing frequencies generated in premises. A Vastu  (premises) refers to an open space enclosed by walls on all sides, irrespective of whether it has a roof or not. Every such space that is built has a center of energy (aka, Deity of the premises). This Diety’s mission is to endow the energy of the space encouraging pleasant events and discouraging those that are distressing or unpleasant there.

Vastu Shastra advises (in considerable detail) how we can construct the premises we intend to live in so as to avoid all kinds of distress and attract spiritually positive vibrations.

According to Vastu Shastra, the spiritual vibrations of the actual premises also depend on a few basic factors:

1. Material used in construction – stone, mud and wood have greater potential to attract positive frequencies than cement or concrete.

2. The direction which the main door, kitchen, bathroom etc. face.

3. The purpose of the premises (house, a shopping mall, a palace, a temple etc.).

Improperly built premises are likely to cause several different types of distress to the residents:

• Physical illnesses (disorders of the stomach, rheumatism, paralysis etc.).

• Psychological problems (anxiety, depression etc.).

• Ill effects on a foetus.

*Note: If the placement of rooms in the premises is wrong then other specific types of distress may also be experienced.

In summary: Vastu Shastra can give us very useful advice on the choice of land and architectural design to insure a pleasant home. However, it is important to understand that the nature (and vibrations) of the residents living in the home and the activities which occur there are generally more important in determining what vibrations are experienced in that space or spaces.
