Introduction to Vastu Shastra  
by: Khushal Sachdeva (

Vastu Shastra is an ancient Indian Vedic Science for construction of premises based on the forces and elements of nature. We can harness the positive energies and vibrations once the Vastu Shastra principles are incorporated within our homes and commercial work premises. This leads us to an atmosphere & environment where we experience harmony, peace, good health and success.

The path of adaptation of Vastu Principles were keenly practiced by our ancient sages and commoners for building homes, temples, and cities. This has gained momentum in modern times. Leading Architects and Builders are offering Vastu compliant homes to their clients. We need to get our selves convinced that Vastu Shastra is not a hoax but a trusted science which correctly guides us in today’s world of hardship and stress.

Vastu Shastra is a science which teaches us to be compatible and create a perfect harmony between “Panch-tatva” (the five essential elements of nature) namely Akash (Sky), Prithvi (Earth), Paani - Jal (Water), Agni (Fire) & Vayu (Air) and also Pranic Oorja – Jaivic Oorja (Cosmic & Organic energies) namely Sunlight, Cosmic radiations & Earth’s magnetic field.

It is imperative to harness the amazing power of nature and live in tune with it since we ourselves are evolved by nature, we live in nature and would perish and return back to nature.
