Our sages and seers have knew the secrets of using all the five elements of this universe and their special characteristics and influences such as the magnetic field, gravitational effect etc. of Earth, the galaxy in the sky, the directions and velocity of the winds, light and heat of the SUN including the effects of its Ultra-Violet and Infra-Red rays, the volume and intensity of rainfall etc. for the advantage of the mankind in suitably planning and constructing buildings for dwelling, prayer, entertainment , education , working , production and other purposes . They evolved scientific methods and systems and confined them over the years as 'vastu SHASTRA'. Our sages SEARCHED it; we are only RESEARCHING it and building the concepts.
Man is the subject, object and the cause of architecture. He perceives and conceives architecture in relation to his experience of himself with the surrounding world. Through art of design, he alters and moulds the elements of natural environment. The world comprises of five basic elements, also known as the Paanchbhootas. They are Earth, Water, Air, Fire and Space. Out of the nine planets, our planet has life because of the presence of these five elements. Earth and Water have limited and localized availability for the human habitat and growth. They form apparent and fundamental choice makers in the location and the physical form of architecture and habitat. Sun, Air and Space are universally available and can be moulded to human needs by the act of design. In order to understand the act of design with these five elements, we shall have to take each one separately to appreciate their meaning, role, and workability in architecture.
Only 10% of your energy resources actually come from the food you consume. The remaining 90% of your energy needs are found in the Air you breath, the Water you drink, the Light you absorb, the Earth you live on, and the Universe you inhabit.
These are the five elements necessary to improve your energy, health and quality of life.
It is believed that out of the nine planets, our planet has life because of the presence of the five Elements.
Everything that exists in the universe, including our bodies, is made of five elements. These five elements are: Earth (geomagnetic energy)Water (gravitational energy)Fire (solar energy)Air (wind energy)Space (cosmic radiation)
These forces have a powerful influence on us, as well as the environment. Vastu is the science of arranging our man-made environments so that we are in alignment with these forces of nature. If we are not aligned with solar and geomagnetic forces we may experience illness, misfortune and struggle. It is as if we are attempting to swim against the current of a river.
The East is the source of solar, ultra-violet rays, and the North is the source of magnetic energy. We benefit by keeping our environment open to these life supporting energies. The harmful infrared rays, which come from the South, and the destructive gamma rays, coming from the West, cause disruption within the environment and our bodies. Using the principles of vastu, we protect ourselves from these rays.
Each of these elements is associated with a particular direction: water in the North East, fire in the South East, earth in the South West, air in the North West and space in the Center. By balancing these elements in their proper proportions, we will gain the benefits of health, happiness and prosperity.
The five elements Out of the nine planets, our planet has life because of the presence of these five elements. The world comprises of five basic elements, also known as the Panchbhootas. They are Earth, Water, Fire, Air, and Space. Earth and Water have limited and localized availability for the human habitat and growth.
Vastu comprises of five natural elements; Earth, Water, Fire, Air, and Space. Each of the elements corresponds to a natural force that affects our lives. Our ascendants were great scientists and they understood the effects of the natural forces on the lives of human being. They are:
Earth: Magnetic field of the earthWater: Gravitational attraction of the earthFire: Solar radiationAir: Wind EnergySpace: Cosmic radiation The effect of the vastu is permanent, because the Earth has been revolving round the Sun, in geo-stationary orbit for over 400 crore years creating the magnetic effect caused by the radiation.
Vastu Shastra originated over 5,000 years ago from the ancient sacred Hindu texts known collectively as the Sthapatya Vedas.
Universe is one of the beautiful creations of nature and everything stands alive only in the limelight of truth. Just like every subject of human aspect is governed with rules, regulations & acts, similarly the nature has also got certain key factor principles for smooth governing of its residents, in which "Vastu stands for nature law" and ignorance of law is not an excuse anywhere.
Vastu is a science that provides a set of principles for the construction, layout and interior design of houses, temples and even whole cities. Vastu works to establish harmony between body, mind and universe by creating living spaces that are similarly attuned with the cosmic balance and are orientated according to the movement of the sun and moon, the electromagnetic field of the earth, the five elements and the astrological influence of the planets.
It is based on five elements water, fire, earth, air and space. Same five elements are found in our body and universe. Even science accepts these five elements in nature and in our body. So, vastu is optimum balance of five elements. In a practical scenario, we can say that vastu Shastra is the perfect combination of science, art, astronomy and astrology which is used for designing and building.
Every creature in this world aspires to have a place that they call their own..... a place that they call HOME... Why not make an effort to make this place in such a fashion where you can enjoy all the luxuries and happiness of this world.
In doing Vastu of any place, home, building, factory, land or plot we try to harmonize the place with respect to the five basic elements called as Panchbhoota namely Air, Water, Fire, Earth and Space.
