What is Vaastu?
Vaastu Shastra is the ancient science of architecture that teaches how to live in harmony with nature and how to influence nature so that it works for your benefit. It is part of a vast body of Vedic knowledge written over 5,000 years ago. ‘Vaastu’ means dwelling and ‘Shastra’ means scientific treatise–the science of designing and building homes according to the eternal laws of nature. There is a natural order and structure to Creation and Vaastu sets forth its principles. Although the same nature exists everywhere, every location is different. Vaastu shows us which places and homes are best to live in.
Whether you live in a simple thatched hut or a substantial estate, if it has been built according to the rules of Vaastu, you will have a heaven–a refuge from the chaos and confusion of the outer world. Nature’s bounty will flow in your life and its severity will be subdued. By living and working in such an environment, nature will support you and your life will progress in a smooth and beautiful way.
Sri Sai Kaleshwara regards the science of Vaastu as a very practical, effective way to solve many of life’s problems. He says, “Good Vaastu creates the main things we need in life–peace, prosperity, power and happiness. If you follow the principles of Vaastu your life will be successful. Vaastu can and will change any person’s life. You can fix your life by using Vaastu. Seriously, it will change your life. In buildings where the secret force of the elements supports you, positive vibrations will flow strongly into your life. I can’t say you will be a huge billionaire, but your life will be so happy. You will be living in bliss. When your land, its surrounding walls, the house and its interiors are built according to Vaastu, it brings a lot of peace prosperity, power and happiness. What else do you need? These are the major issues in human life. Eighty percent of your problems can be solved through Vaastu. Your life will become very happy and blissful.”
Your home’s Vaastu impacts every aspect of your life. It affects you whether you believe in Vaastu or not. Good Vaastu in the places where you live and work brings good fortune, while bad Vaastu creates unnecessary suffering. By following the principles of Vaastu you can transform the quality of life. You can transform anyone’s life. You can change your experience and alter your destiny. With good Vaastu, health, happiness and success come much more easily. While with bad Vaastu, obstacles, problems and hardships will come, seemingly without reason.
