is an ancient Indian science that lays down the guidelines
for building layout and demarcation of areas for different
activities. It essentially deals with the correct
placement of man with respect to its environment to
achive harmony with nature and is based on the influences
of the five natural elements; sun, sky, water, earth
and air in conjugation with the force exerted by earth's
magnetic fields. Vaastu is essentially the art of
correct settings one can place himself in such a manner
as to derive maximum benefits.
The ancient relics say that Vaastu is based on
two forces "positive" and "negative"
which are constantly interacting with each other
on the surface of the land. These forces should
get disturbed whenever any structure is erected
on a vacant land, to maintain a balance.
If there are more positive energies (forces) than
the negative energies, the result of such a construction
would yield more benefits to the inmates leading
to a more successful, healthy, wealthy and peaceful
life, contrary to this if the negative energies
dominate the premises the effects could be negative.
