Vastu is not a religion but is a vidya, a science. It has been developed thousands of years ago, in the middle time we have become so modern that we forgot our Vedic culture. Now that we are facing all kind of problems, we are coming back to vedas.
Our ancestors had given us "Yog" but we did not take it seriously, it went abroad, renamed as "Yoga", now we are running after it and foreign countries are making profit out of it. WHY?? Why we cannot respect our own culture. We are following their culture and they are following ours.
Vastu only teaches us to follow the rules of nature and to balance the five elements from which we all, this universe is made up of.

It gives practical guidelines on site selection, its contouring level, orientation of the building in relation to climatology and microweather, arrangements of areas/rooms in relation to the different activities of the proposed building. Their proportions as well as rituals for successive stages of house building.

Therefore Southward portion of every building should be higher than the northward portion so that there may not be any hindrance to the flow of magnetic waves.
