vaastu or superstition


A beautiful home all of a sudden becomes unsuitable to live - in because principles of vaastu are not applied to its construction. Why so much importance is given to this ancient  science in this modern world of technological know how. Most of us think how superstitious are even some very literate people are to just vaguely follow a so called vaastu expert & change the complete scenario of their living.


Let’s try to know the real science behind this superstition.

Vaastu Shastra , the ancient Indian Architecture Study emphasizes on the basic principles of universal or solar energy , magnetic field of earth & the wind directions.


For instance , a vaastu expert says to sleep facing south or east , now why should one change the complete bed position & in some cases the entire ambience of one’s bedroom for this. The reason – earth has a magnetic field moving from North to South , Human beings also have the same magnetic field moving in the same direction. Now while we sleep facing North our body’s magnetic field would repel with that of Earth’s , & you are not Einstein to guess who is stronger Earth or You, thereby weakening our body strength, creating hormonal imbalances, depressions, pains & aches. Instead if we sleep facing south , it would just be opposite, our body’s magnetic field would attract with that of earth’s creating a harmony.


Sleeping facing east is second best as then we are sleeping in cordinance with the solar energy.


So this was just one truth behind various misunderstanding about vaastu.


Try applying it & you will automatically create a happy living atmosphere for yourself.
