Vastu comes from the same ancient scriptures of the Vedas that define the practises of yoga, meditation, Ayurveda, and Vedic astrology. Vastu is the yoga of interiors, bringing balance to your life, health and harmony to your environment, inner peace and tranquility through order, and unity. Meditation gives the experience of pure consciousness to the subtle spirit; Vastu enhances this and connects us with the source through proper channels of design. Ayurveda, is the discipline of the science of life, creating balance for health of the body. Vastu creates healthy buildings; this so absolutely affects our mental and physical health, happiness, and prosperity —- and the health of the environment. Vedic astrology gives knowledge of planetary influences on our lives, emotions, relationships, prosperity, career, and health. Applying an expert Vastu consultant’s recommendations and remedies helps correct negative influences in all areas of life. It also increases and creates positive effects well beyond the merely decorative.
Sacred Geometry or Yantras which create perfect geometrical three-dimensional energy fields and, when placed properly in the home, help neutralize any negative effects of improper vastu. A yantra is a visual mantra and are great tools for buildings that were not Vastu-designed. They protect from disturbing negative energies in the environment. When we focus upon a yantra mandala, the mind resonates with the energy of the deity and a higher awareness or consciousness is said to be obtained. The planets exert powerful vibratory effects on our bodies, minds, and emotions. Yantras give us help in creating harmony with nature rather than working against the forces from nature. Yantras are beautiful art, the original Vedic sacred geometry from ancient India. These cosmic diagrams generate beautiful energies that instill splendid divine consciousness into your surroundings.
North – East areas of your homes are considered as the energy generators. Placing a Sri Yantra in the North East corner will magnify the energy of prosperity and happiness. Sitting quietly in a comfortable position, allow your breathing to settle into a deep, slow rhythm, meditate and feel the energy of abundance and prosperity flowing through you.
Vastu recognizes five elements of creation that, when honored, enhance the flow of prana, universal life-force energy, within a building. Honoring nature is a sacred acknowledgement. The five elements of earth, air, fire, water, and space are energetically linked with particular directions. Earth is associated with the southwest; air, northwest; fire, southeast; and water the northeast. Space, akasha, is the expansiveness in the center of both the architectural form and each room.
Curtains, tapestry and cushion cover play an important role in interior decoration of the house. Colourful silk curtains, tapestry, cushion decorate the house and enhance the beauty of the rooms. If you choose the colour of curtains according to Vaastu principles, the environment of your house will be calm and quiet. The Vaastu friendly sari curtains bring fortune and gradually the unfavorable circumstances turn favorable.
