Vastu is an ancient Indian science of architecture and buildings which helps in making a congenial setting or a place to live and work in a most scientific way taking advantage of the benefits bestowed by nature, its elements and energy fields for enhanced wealth, health, prosperity and happiness.

Vastu Shastra unifies the science, art, astronomy and astrology; it can also be said as an ancient mystic science for designing and building.

Vastu is the science of direction that combines all the five elements of nature and balance them with the man and the material. The word Vastu is derived from the root “Vasa” which means “to live” or “to reside”. Vastu Shastra is creating a congenial settings or a place to live or work, in most scientific way taking advantages of the benefits bestowed by the five elements called "Paanchbhootas" of the nature thereby paving the way for enhanced health, wealth, prosperity and happiness in an enlightened environment.

Vastu principles: the universe is a composition of five basic elements
Vayu (air), Agni (fire), Jal (water), Bhumi (earth) and Aakasha (space), which are known as Panchabhutas. Everything on earth is built from these elements. Through these, our body receives Internal Energies in the form of Proteins, Carbohydrates, and so ford. When the harmonics between these elements gets disturbed our energies get dissipated in different directions leading to stress, strain and ill health and our peace of mind is shattered.

Our sages and seers have knew the secrets of using all the five elements of this universe and their special characteristics and influences such as the magnetic field, gravitational effect etc. of Earth, the galaxy in the sky, the directions and velocity of the winds, light and heat of the SUN including the effects of its Ultra-Violet and Infra-Red rays, the volume and intensity of rainfall etc. for the advantage of the mankind in suitably planning and constructing buildings for dwelling, prayer, entertainment, education, working, production and other purposes. They evolved scientific methods and systems and confined them over the years as 'VASTU SHASTRA'. Our sages SEARCHED it; we are only RESEARCHING it and building the concepts.

Vastu design in alliance with the Laws of Nature
According to the design of a structure, one feels either comfort or discomfort. Building designed in accordance with the Laws of Nature will produce a sense of bliss, calmness and fulfillment. Poorly designed structures produce sickness and depression.

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. Through art of design, he alters and moulds the elements of natural environment. The world comprises of five basic elements, also known as the Panchabhootas. They are Earth, Water, Air, Fire and Space. Out of the nine planets, our planet has life because of the presence of these five elements. Earth and Water have limited and localized availability for the human habitat and growth. They form apparent and fundamental choice makers in the location and the physical form of architecture and habitat. Sun, Air and Space are universally available and can be molded to human needs by the act of design. We all know that the universe is in perfect order since its beginning. If the architect can establish the relationship between building design and the order of the universe, the life of an individual can be healthier, less stressful, more creative and blissful.
