Vaastu directions for your home


Vaastu directions for your home

The Indian Sub-Continent is host to the oldest civilization on earth and the Indic Vedic script may be the oldest form of writing, as well as the oldest predictive language on planet Earth. Vedic astrology may be older than Western horoscopes, Chinese Astro and Feng Shui. Do you want to harness the ancient wisdom of India to benefit your life in spirit and wellness? You can learn how the understanding Vedic astrologers have about the concepts of Karma, Dharma, and reincarnation can be applied to your physical space to clear spiritual blockages. This ancient art may help improve the flow of energies in your life.

Vaastu is a word in Sanskrit, the oldest language of the Indo-Aryan language group which contains most modern Western languages (including English, French, and Greek). It means "site" or location of a dwelling or temple. Shastra is a Sanskrit word referring to a collection of wisdom that in modern English may be interpreted as an art, science, or practice. This is how the most ancient civilization on the planet has used their wisdom to arrange the physical spaces in their lives. Even if you don't have an ancient stone temple or a magnificent palace, you can use the principles of Vaastu Shastra to bring the Vedic blessings of completion and unity to your apartment or even your office workspace!

The ancient specialists in Indian Astrology were heavily influenced by the karmic beliefs in the sub-continent of India. They used their understanding of Dharmic paths to make predictions. Karma is a belief in the concept of cycles. This is expressed by their belief in a cycle of repeating life and death where a soul oscillates between these two states through time. Vedic adherents believe in reincarnation of the soul after death. In a similar way, Vedic beliefs emphasize the concept of Karma in returning energy cycles. This is the idea that all energies put out in the world by any individual are destined to return to that individual in the future as the path of the energies through the world curves back to complete a full circle. Vaastu Shastra is the way of bringing these concepts of unity and completion to a physical space in the world.

Vaastu Shastra takes this concept of cycles and union into the physical realm. First a type of floor plan called a Mandala divides a square area into an equal grid of smaller squares. Configurations of 4, 9, 16, 25, 36, 49, 64, and 81 sub-squares are known, although many more are possible. In the center of the Mandala, a central area known as the Brahmasthana forms the core around which a path forms in the grid. For example, in a 9 square Mandala, the central square, like the five on a keypad, would be the Bramasthana. The other squares in the grid must allow flow for energy to move around the central area. Positions for items in the circle around the central area are suggested: North should contain the treasury; Northeast, the prayer room; East, a bathroom; Southeast, the kitchen; The south should have the bedroom; Southwest the armory; West, a dining room; Northwest, a cowshed or pantry. With some careful planning based on Vaastu principles you can bring back all the good energy you have been putting out into the world!
