The word ‘Vastu’ or ‘Vaastu’ translates to the following in English – House, or place of dwelling.
‘Vastu’ is derived from the Sanskrit language. ‘Vasathi’ in Sanskrit means comfort. Over here, comfort refers to the right proportion as well as the correct positioning of the five elements, namely, Agni or Fire, Vaayu or Air, Vaari or Water, Prithvi or Earth, and finally Akash or Sky.
Vastu Shastra is known as the science of Vastu. It is an ancient Indian science, which was developed thousands of years ago by the sages. Using certain scientific principles, a Vastu practitioner studies the positioning of a property (be it an office space, residence, factory, etc.) and basis the five elements of Agni, Vaayu, Prithvi, and Akash, suggests and predicts what the right architecture of the property must be. For example, Where the entrance of the property must be, in order to attract good wealth, keep the inhabitants healthy, and more.
A good Vastu practitioner’s remedies can go a long way in using science to ensure that the right energies are always surrounding your property. This in turn can decide whether a particular property brings good luck with it, and helps to live a happy life.
