Several conferences and workshops are taking place on environment and atmospheric science at many places all over the world. Every body is quite conscious of environmental pollution, green house effect and natural calamities like Tsunami, Rita etc, However, our ancestors were wiser enough to ensure smooth survival by establishing coherence with nature, to make proper utilization of the immense natural resources provided by nature, which could ensure us health, prosperity, wisdom and peace.
All of us know that all these four elements play significant role in our life and absence of any one of them could hamper the progress. When we talk about health, prosperity, wisdom and peace, one can attain them while living like a saint and leading a spiritual life. The common people have dream of attaining the same at home or at their work place.
The study of Ved shastra reveals that equilibrium between the five elements including earth, space, wind, fire and water would give us positive results and fulfill our wishes to a great extent. 'Vastu' guides us the manner in which balance between all these five important elements could be maintained while constructing our house or office.
In fact Vastu shastra is basically an art of constructing a building by which a person could bind himself in a tradition and could be in a position to reap maximum benefits of the five elements called 'Panch Mahabhoot'.
In fact it is not possible for a human being to obtain entire information regarding the five elements but vastu shastra has provided us enough knowledge regarding mutual harmony of five elements. Numerous remedial measures related to Vastu correction have been recommended by the savants of Vastu shastra. The articles on Vastu in our website contain lot of information about Vastu. Some of the Yantras which are considered to be good if placed at home or work place for attaining peace and prosperity are listed below.
A cut in North-East is dangerous for the management /owner
It has been observed that certain rules in Vastu are accurate to the extent that they are
difficult to be believed. One such rule is that North East should be extended. In no case it should be pressed or have a cut. That is why it has been suggested that temple or God should be placed in North East.
A cut or suppression in north east creates tension for the person living in that room, house, office or factory.
Keep the north east clean and full of fragrance. You can place a water body like an aquarium
or a fountain or can have your place of worship in that area.
Never make it heavy or higher compared to other covers. Keep this area cool and fresh, may by plantation or putting flower pots.
If the North East is high it normally leads to the ill health of owner. A cut in north - east brings mental tensions, confusions and finally money problems to the person staying or working at that place. For all practical purposes owner is one who is using it, which means that the person using the premises shall become the victim of this negative impact.
This rule is miraculously accurate and if this cut is only in one specific room in that case the person living in the room will suffer but if there is cut in the plot or the whole building in that case the owner shall suffer from the problem irrespective of the room he is staying.
Vastu- Science of Harmony
Vastushastra unifies the science, art, astronomy and astrology,
it can also be said as an ancient mystic science for designing and building. Vastushastra
helps us to make our lives better and will secure from things going wrong. Vastu
is the science of direction that combines all the five elements of nature and balances
them with the man and the material. Man is the subject, object and the cause of
architecture. He perceives and conceives architecture in relation to his experience
of himself with the surrounding world. Vastu is the science of harmony that brings
harmony among the five elements in existence in the universe.
It guides us to live with the law of nature for health, wealth and over all prosperity. The
elements are related to human beings. The first element EARTH is present in the form of minerals and bones in the body. Earth constitutes 73% of water and the content of water in the body is almost 73%. Fire is required in the digestive system of the body to break down the food to get required energy. Air in terms of oxygen circulates the blood in the body. Space is required for the existence as soon as we are born. Thus the five elements in the earth are correlated with our body. The principle of Vastu is based upon the situation of Sun, the property and the position of the matter. Directions and its elements play an important role. There are four main directions - North, East, South and West and four-cardina directions – North East, South East, North West and South West. The center is called the Brahmasthan.
Each direction bestows different energies and is ruled by different lords, which have direct
impact on our lives. Earth's magnetic force flows from North Pole to South Pole. The planet Mercury rules North direction and deity is Kuber. The element is water, color is green. This direction gives health, balance and stability. Northeast direction is ruled by the planet of abundance Jupiter and is called Ishaan Kona. Deity is lord Shiva, the color is yellow it gives wealth and wisdom. It is the most auspicious and sensitive direction. The East direction is ruled by the king of planets Sun, Deity is lord Indra and color is orange. This direction is the victory door and bestows name, fame and success in life. The Southeast direction is ruled by the planet of love and luxuries and is Agneya Kona. The lord is Venus and deity is fire.
This direction gives new beginnings and the blessings of Goddess Laxmi. The South direction is ruled by the martial planet Mars and deity is Yam. The color is red and it gives stability in life. The shadowy planets Rahu-Ketu rule the Southwest direction. The element is earth and deity is Pitra. The colour is mixed colour and it reveals firmness in life. The planet of karma Saturn rules the West direction and deity is Varun. This direction gives motivation and new lessons in life. The fastest moving Moon rules the Northwest direction and deity is Vayu. The element is air and colour is white. This direction brings changes in life. The most important is Brahmasthan, which is the beginning and end of each direction and centre of the area. This is sensitive part of the area, it should remain open and clean. Thus each direction fills the different shades of life and enables us to achieve balance and prosperity in our life. The basic points should be taken under consideration while constructing the house or building according to Vastu.
It is very essential that there should not be any religious place, cremation ground, open slitting water lane etc near by surroundings of the plot.

In the modern times it is very difficult to leave Brahmasthan open, so lobby/drawing/dining hall should be constructed there. In staircase the steps should be in odd number in clockwise direction and elevation of it should be from east to west or north to south. It should not be in reverse direction in any case. Vaastu Shanti Tips for Offices / Businesses In the office, the temple should not be placed at the back of the owner’s seat. The owner seat must be facing east or north. West is also permissible but it must not face south. There must always be a solid wall behind the owner’s seat. The owner’s desk must always be rectangle. The central point of a factory, house and office should be empty.
