ROLE OF INDIA IN VASTU


India is the mother of vastu as our saints formulate principles of vastu here. Vastu was written down thousands of years ago where our sages kept in mind the effect of energies and sunlight and balance all the five elements in a manner to have the maximum benefit out of it.

Vastu Shilpa Shastra, the ancient mystic science and the art of designing and constructing buildings finds its origin in Stapatya Veda, which in turns is a part of Atharvana Veda, one of the four Vedas. According to modern historians Ferguson, Havell and Cunningham, this science developed during the period of 6000 BC and 3000 BC.

Proofs of vaastu shastra can be found during the time of Ramayan and Mahabharat. In the cities of Mohanjodaro and Harappa the application of vaastu shastra can be seen. In the Matsya Purana, seventeen preceptors of Vaastu have been mentioned.



These principles, called Vastu Shastra, were evolved over thousands of years out of experience and foresight of ancient Sages of India and are very valuable for the well being of mankind. According to Shastras, if we worship, revere and respect the lords of these eight directions, they will shower on us their blessings and benefits. Our saints have searched vastu shastra; we are only Researching it.

The following lines depicts the importance of vastu shastra :

  • SHASTRENANEN SARVASYA LOKASYA PARAM SUKHAM.

  • CHATURVERG PHALA PRAPTI SHLOKSHCH BHAVEDYUVAM.

  • SHLIP SHASTRA PARIGYAN MRITYOAPI SUJETAAM VRAJET.

  • PARMANAND JANAK DEVANAMI DIMIRITAM.

  • SHILP VINA NAHI JAGTISHU LOKESHU VIDYATE.

  • JAGAD VINA NA SHILPANCH VARTATE VASAU PRABHO


Meaning - Because of VASTU SHASTRA, the whole universe gets good health, happiness and all round prosperity. Human beings attain divinity with this knowledge. Followers of VASTU SHASTRA get not only worldly pleasure but also experience heavenly bliss. With the above shloka, it is very much clear that VASTU SHASTRA is universal. It is not confined to any particular group of people in the development of all human being irrespective of any caste, creed or religion.
