Vastu literally means " house" or "Dwelling Place" and its principles establish to create a harmony between the fine elements viz. Earth, Sky, Fire, Water and Air in the environment.
Our ancient sages have applied their vastu knowledge and judgment to mitigate the negative functioning of our environment and increase the advantageous effect that it can have on our life.
Vastu can be treated as science based on energy emanating from various sources. Energy is generated from the nature. Our life depends on it. Energy rules every form of life on the earth. This energy can be either positive or negative. Incorrect vastu creates negative energy. Vastu corrections can be done by neutralising this negative energy by strong positive energy radiating devices.
We all care about our homes and spend our time, effort and money, trying to make them more comfortable. For most of us it represents one of the biggest investments we ever make. Our home and the design of our home can damage our health, the air we breathe and the water we drink, without our even being aware of it.
Similarly, at the places where we work, environmental stresses contribute to overall load, preventing us to reach our full potential. Resisting these external forces becomes more important for growth and development.
Vastu can fruitfully be applied to the areas of our activities. We should initially concentrate on areas, which affect our life, i.e., where we live and work.
