Residential Vastu

What is Vastu ?

Vaas means to live / to reside / to exist. Vaastu is the study of the building in accordance with nature or 5 basic elements earth, water, fire, air, and space. We can say Vastu is the science of building. In vastu shastra we align the building as per nature so that we derive it's maximum benefits. The balance of earth, water, fire, air and space. It is keeping right things at the right time at right place. Vastu in India is hugely followed in residential building than commercial as it is the place where one goes and unwinds. Though vastu alongwith astrology plays ten percent role.

Vaastu shastra is recognised by goverment of India. Jain's have followed Vastu Shastra the most. If you see Jain buildings and Jain temples you will see it's made as per Vastu. Vastu can be applied in human body also with the help of Vastu Purush which also shows balance of earth, water, fire, air, and space.

What all to consider in Vastu ?

Vastu is the study of relationship between the occupants and building in terms of land, location and environment. 

  1. OCCUPANT - In this we consider there psychology i.e thinking pattern and phase in ones life.

  2. LAND - We see the fertility of the soil i.e Urvara shakti. We do soil testing to check for the quality of soil and check if it is termite free.

  3. LOCATION - There are a lot of things which are affecting our building from all sides. For example if the house is located near a banquet hall, school or mandir its not considered good. Infront of channel, garbage area etc. A good location is surrounded by greenery or park atleast in the front for residential vastu.


  5. Structure - We study the structure i.e we look at the structure beam and coloumn from perspective. Interior - We look at the aesthetic and logic for comfort. Entrance - Our vision will be from direction. Where we enter the house is the kind of energy it bring alongs. Entrance is very important aspect of vastu.
  6. ENVIRONMENT - External and Internal environment.

    External climate for long period. Weather - The temperature today and micro climatic conditions. The climatic design of a place i.e which zone it belongs to south, north or moderate temperature zone.

    Internal environment- The internal environment affects the most as we maximum stay in our internal environment.

How do we zone different interior activities ? The importance of sun in zoning.

The movement of the sun governs the zoning of an interior space. The direction where sunrises from which North East and where it sets South West. The best time to check the direction of the sun is during equinox in the month of September or March.

In residential vastu we see the occupants residing by their age group and their preferences -

  1. Toddlers (0-3)
  2. Children (3-12)
  3. Teenagers (13-18)
  4. Students (19 - 21)

Why is sleeping with North bedhead not considered healthy ? 

The earth magnetic field moves in 2 halves from NORTH TO SOUTH. The magnetic forces enters are body from North and leaves from south in 2 halves. The magnetic force is very strong. Hence when we are in unconsious state and we lay ourselves with head in NORTH, the magnetic force is too strong to bear. It's in excess which dirupts brain functionality. A person sleeping with NORTH bedhead is more prone to depression, mood swings, over thinking, confusion, illusions and may have psychological sickness.
