Vāstu shastra (वास्तु, vāstu) (शास्त्र, śāstra) is an ancient architectural and interior design science that finds its origins in ancient India and has its roots in the eternal and sacred Vedas. It guides the design and construction of buildings with the help of simple and natural laws that govern the universe. Primarily, Vāstu provides information on what to keep in mind when choosing a piece of land, constructing and/or decorating buildings. In Sanskrit, the word vāstu means “site” or “house foundation”.
Vāstu combines the eight directions, all the five elements of nature, astrology, astronomy, and body & mind constitutions (Prakruti) of the owners. Vāstu is about creating home and/or work spaces that enable individuals to be successful by discovering their true Self, purpose, health and wealth. In takes into consideration the advantages bestowed by the five elements called “Panchamahabhootas”, Space, Air, Fire, Water and Earth, and the cardinal directions, thereby paving the way for enhanced health, wealth, prosperity and happiness in an enlightened environment.
