The Sanskrit word vastu means "any really existing or abiding substance or essence, thing, object, article", and also "goods, wealth, property". The vrddhi, vastu takes the meaning of "the site or foundation of a house, site, ground, building or dwelling-place, habitation, homestead, house". The underlying root is vas "to dwell, live, stay, abide".

There are many principles in Vaastu Shastra. To mention a few which involve certain mathematical calculations, Maana is used for proportional relationships in a building and Aayaadi specifies conditions for maximum wellbeing and benefits for the residents of a building. Below are some of the basic theories in vaastu sastra.

According to vaastu sastra, the world comprises five basic elements known as the pancha maha bhoota. Out of the nine planets, ours has life because of the presence and balance of these five elements. The five elements are as follows.

EARTH (Bhumi) - Earth, the third planet in order from the sun, is a big magnet with North and South poles as centers of attractions. Its magnetic field and gravitational force has considerable effects on everything on the Earth, living and non-living.
WATER (Jala) - This is represented by rain, river, sea and is in the form of liquid, solid (ice) and gas (steam, cloud). It forms part of every plant and animal. Our blood is nothing but water with haemoglobin and oxygen.
AIR (Vayu) - As a life supporting element, air is a very powerful life source. Human physical comfort values are directly and sensitively dependent on correct humidity, air flow, temperature of air, air pressure, air composition and its content.
FIRE (Agni) - Represents light and heat which account for day, night, the seasons, energy, enthusiasm, passion and vigour.
SPACE (Akasha) - The akasha provides shelter to all the above elements. It is also considered the primary conductor of all energy sources within the universal context - physical energies such as sound and light, social energies such as psychological and emotional, and cognitive energies such as intellect and intuition.

These days, we often hear people talking about Vaasthu kala. But none of us have an exact idea as to what is this Vastu shastra all about. Indian vaastu shastra is the science of direction that combines all the five elements of nature, namely earth, water, air, fire and space and uses them to the benefit of mankind. It is an art of using these five elements also known as Paanchbhootas, for the prosperity of humans.

Vaastu shastra is an art that enables us to lead a peaceful life, by creating congenial living conditions. It is an ancient Indian art that harnesses the energy of natural elements like the heat and light of sun, gravitational force of earth, direction of winds, the intensity of rainfall etc and uses them to balance with the surroundings of mankind. Thus, Vastu vidya is the art of molding the natural environment so as to suit the needs of human beings.                                                                                                              more...

This science deals with the eternal process of the subtle energy manifesting into material space or material form.

There is an invisible and constant relation between all the five elements. Thus, the man can improve his conditions by properly designing his buildings by understanding the effectiveness of these five natural forces.
