Vastu Shastra comes from the same text of the Vedas as does Yoga and Ayurveda, the Atharva Veda.
This wisdom of the sages comes alive in our time explaining clearly how to create an environment that will not disrupt nature's flow.
Truly the first ‘green’ building science.
How it works
Orienting to the cardinal directions is key for maximizing the positive energy flow. When a structure is out of alignment, all areas of our lives are affected. Vastu Shastra gives us tools to rectify a mis-aligned building. A structure is as alive as we are, it needs air and light and all five elements in balance to thrive and gain nature’s support.
The five elements are associated with specific directions as follows:
Earth - southwest
Water - northeast
Fire - southeast
Air - northwest
Space - the center (cosmic energy)
When we have the elements in balance as well as the directional and planetary influences, we create an environment that supports health, offers opportunities, and has a subtle and powerful influence in all areas of our lives.
