Dear SEFIans,

Do Vasthu Shastra is really useful?
If it is really useful why it is not being taught to the Engineers and Architects during the academics?

Er.Ramakrishna,

Yes Vastu is useful to make money and many engineers left their profession and started doing Vastu consultant. They are coping up to the world.

An eminent engineer in Tamilnadu has written a book on Vastu and writes in one chapter "If Vastu can do well then can it cure a cancer patient " or a poor man manages to do all vastu ceremony will he get richness?

It is only belief and the norms used by ancients are made to fool the people who are trusting it that it is due to the vastu.

In olden days why they keep the kitchen on south east corner not because of getting good wealth by vastu but to get more sun light in the early morning which can kill the germs and bacteria by the ultraviolet rays and to get more light. Like this there is reasons for every aspect but in the days run it became a business.

It is only a belief.

T.RangaRajan.

Dear Sir,

I just share one incident. While constructing my sister's house, one vaasthu consultant had visited the house and advised to leave the provision for steel almora in the south west corner of the south west room - almora must face north. Also, he had instructed my sister to operate the almora( opening, closing, taking something out and keeping something in) must be done by keeping the face of the person operating it to east!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! how it is possible !? I felt it extreamely funny and  illogical.

In the ancient days, people might have adopted this for a good ventilation and made the others to adopt it only for ventilation by using sentimental reasons.

Correct me if I am wrong

Vaastu Shastra has got importance recently in last 10-15yrs only. .. But it is  
based on belief like astronomy, stones ring wearing, or any other activity to  
get help from Nature.

It is one more GHOST being added to the list of already existing ones which  
may haunt a person 'If not done like that , problems'.

But people are running after Vaastu Shastris,  


One Sufi poet has said about his love for Almighty as - - -

It is a matter of ones own choice, ones own passion
But I have chosen you and let the whole world ignored.

Hence ignorance of such is better otherwise one always keep negative thinking.

Even after constructing house as per Vaastu consultant , there may be
problems - - - -then where the person will go .

Vaastu Shastra- Architectural-Natural Shilpy Administration

  1. Every topic has not been understood by engineers & scientists.
  2. We know only, what we can prove but, more than that knowledgee does exist.
  3. It is true that Vastu applicators have made monies due to fact that people are orthodox & paradox.
  4. Human has been studing nature to understand it thoroughly while, only a small part of it has been understood. Whatever, has been systematically understood, is called science, while remaining is either faith or belief.
  5. We know that there is light & we use it & experience it by naked eyes but, we forget that during night, hardly ignorable % of environment is seen. It does not mean that dark part is blank. There could be many entities working in dark part.
  6. But, Vastu is a natural science & nothing to do with certain adopted religious applications.
  7. As much as one remains & follows natural provisions, is a positive consideration throwing away negative impacts from impacting human body.
  8. Vastu is related to magnetic field working on all planets.
  9. North & South being basis of magnetic science, North is considered positive while South is negative & therefore, sleeping duration fire can be used for soft relief.
  10. Clock wise is better than anti clockwise movement.
  11. Flow from East to West is better to be in line of flow of Sunlight.
  12. During sleep, one requires negative world or dark world entry, that can be made oriented by keeping head towards South rather than considering bed room South oriented.
  13. Kitchen is a fire place & South is considered a fire place. Gas chula can be installed at South.
  14. Stair flight can be oriented to make clockwose ascending.
  15. Storage for a successful future can be made use of South since it shall not positively move.
  16. Similarly, engineers being scientists can opt for many other areas that remain tuned to natural systems for postive energies.
  17. While doing work, it has been emphasied by Vastu that look towards East but, I differ due to fact that keeping towards South increases internal mental energy that augments work energy.
  18. Looking towards East shall certainly provide face charming energy of physical nature. But, concentration is better than face charming. Whatever, contemplated while looking towards South shall not run out shortly.
  19. West direction can be considered retiring mode temporarily since, sunlight retires.
  20. East can be considered rising mode for morning positive energies work around day in building.
  21. It is easy to think as such rather than depending on pundits who cannot think but, blindly follow, what has been directed by vastu Purush consideration, who Purush in self is a science.
  22. Vastu provisions by contemplation can very well be integrated with design avoiding religious considerations since, vastu got no relation to religion.
  23. Even, far east public do follo similar type of other named sciences. Even to some extent West world do follw.
  24. Only difference in West world is that they follow Sun timing while, we in Bharat follow Chander timings.

Yes sir, definitely this might be having some bearing on planning and engineering. If this has bearing on engineering and planning, why not is is inducted as part of curriculum? Common man shall approach a proffessional for solution. Secondly, vaasthu will be inducted from the stage of planning instead of going for alterations after the construction, as alteration will be a huge cost implication for a common man.

Dear All,

Vastu Shashtra as practised in India for ages is based on the effect of natural forces, which can not be belittled just because a few practitioners are misleading the people at large.
In olden times Sun rays were the only means to reduce the harmful effects of bacterias and hence the theory of having kitchen in S-E sector and cooking being done while facing East so that morning sun rays could fall on various inputs.
The master bedroom is placed in S-W sector as during night this sector will be most warm during winters and more breezy during summer as in major part of India wind flows from
S-W.
We get sun rays without UV rays in N-E sector in the morning, therefore study rooms and entrances were placed in this sector.That was also the reason for keeping water or its sources in this direction as these were all on surface.Bore wells do not get affected by this rule.
As against this in China the N-E is not supposed to be good as icy winds flow from this direction there.


Hence we can say that nature is the basis for Vastu Shastra.
We need to take maximum benefits of nature under the present day scientifically advanced conditions and not follow anything blindly.


Proper research is needed in the subject matter.


Regards,


Er.G.D.Rao
