Vastu/ Fengshui

What is Vastu
Vastu shastra is a traditional Hindu system of architecture, which literally translates to "science of architecture." This subject describes principles of design, layout, measurements, ground preparation, space arrangement and spatial geometry in relation to universal energies. It is based on the study and balancing of ten directions (North, East, West, South, North-East, South-East, South-West and North-West) and five elements (Earth, Air, Space, Fire and Water).

Our body is also made of these five elements ('Panchabhoota' or 'Panchtatva') and therefore in this whole process Vastu-Shastra has been very much advantageous.

The entire Universe, whether it is Stars, Planets, Moons, or any form of life, is made up of these five elements.

In buildings, each direction is dominated by one element; a balanced state being the cause of positive, and an imbalanced state the cause of negative effects. It is the balance or imbalance among these 'Panchtatva' that makes one's space a virtual heaven or hell.

Some Tips of Vastu
1. What is the great hullabaloo about the direction of the entrance about?
The door to the house is considered the most important feature of a house for many reasons. For one, it gives the first impression about your residence; moreover it is the point from where your home begins. According to Vastu the main entrance should be the path from where positive energy flows into the house. Keeping this in mind it is advisable if the entrance to the house is from the East, North and North East.

2. How should the rooms be designed?
According to the vastu doctrine, the bathroom should be on the East, the kitchen in the Southeast or the Northwest side with the cook facing either, East or North. It's generally better if fire or the heat generating elements are placed on the Southeast side.

The master bedroom should preferably be in the South/Southwest direction with the dining room/eating area placed in the West.

3. And what do the walls speak of?
Have the major walls painted in lighter hues, as these shades promote relaxation, harmony and peace. You would have experienced tension in a dark room, or some chill running down your spine, if the room is painted red. On the other hand, red is a good colour for eateries, as it is exciting and makes us hungry. So keep the purpose in mind. Even when going in for concept walls, choose the wall colour to be maximum two shades darker than the base tone. It is not only vastu compliant, but also more aesthetic.

Our house is our refuge, our haven, it should be a place where you should want to calm your senses, hence dark colours are best avoided inside.

4. The importance of square/rectangular forms
Vastu insists on spaces that are square or rectangular in shape because it signifies shelter, stability and safety. Hence rooms that are square or rectangular in design are the most preferable. Anyway, those circular rooms are a waste of space. With so many practical solutions, we will agree that vastu is a well thought about doctrine, isn't it?

5. Where there is water, there is serenity.
Any water body inside the house should be placed in the Northeast direction, it can include a swimming pool, an aquarium, water tank or any other water body. Moreover when water drainage is concerned it should also drain out to the Northeast direction.

You might not want to have the hassle of maintaining an aquarium or a waterfall. All you can do is place a beautiful earthen bowl with some water in the Northeastern corner. Go ahead add some flower petals or floating candles in it.

6. What about airflow patterns?
The concept of space and the element of air in the house is a very important aspect in vastu shastra. According to it there should be provision for some empty space in the middle of the house from where light enters the house. This central space should remain clutter-free and empty.

Also airflow inside the house should be from the Northeast direction; to facilitate it Vastu shastra also indicates the placements and height of doors, windows and balconies.

7. All doors in the house should open inside

8. The north side of a house should not be blocked

9. All door hinges should operate smoothly without any noise
