What is Vastu-Shastra and How to Use it While Decorating Your Home?by Vivek Choudhary Nice life
Vastu Shastra is a traditional Indian school of thought that deals with the systems of architecture of the Indian origin. Vastu Shastra translates to ‘The Science of Architecture’. Vastu Shastra is nothing but the renowned texts found on the Indian subcontinent that define the principles of design, structure, layout, ground preparation, measurements, geometry etc.
Vastu Shastra is an ancient Indian science of prosperous living and harmony which works out by eliminating the negative energies which give rise to the positive feelings around us. Many people believe that Vastu Shastra only pertains to the construction and design aspects of a property. However, Vastu Shastra is very much applicable to the interior of your homes. Even the Brass Pooja Chowki in your house must be kept in line with the Vastu Shastra’s school of thought. It is believed that if your home is constructed as per Vastu rules, but you fail to incorporate the same practices in the interior decoration of your house, then it could create an imbalance in the overall positivity in your home. Here are some tips for incorporatingVastu Shastra respectfully and adequately in your homes.
1. Design the doorway – Your doorway or the main entrance is not just an entry point for the family, but it is also where the positive energy travels from, and you must make sure that the entry to your home is located facing North East, North, or South of South-East directions to maintain the integrity of the structure while balancing out the energies.
2. The Living Room – The living room is where most of the activity happens in the house. The family gets together, and even when guests arrive, the living room is what makes or breaks the first impression about your home. Hence, you need to keep your living room clutter-free. Heavy furniture should be kept in the south-west or west direction of the room.
3. Balance in the Bedroom – It is believed that sometimes, the smallest things can make your life turn around. Vastu Shastra suggests that tweaking your bedroom just a tad can help in enhancing positive vibes and can even help to improve relations between couples. Never place a bedroom in the north-east or south-east zone of the house as the north-east direction makes it easy to cause health issues, while a bedroom facing south-east can cause quarrels between couples. Also, you must not place a mirror or television in front of the bed as it can cause domestic disruptions.
4. Making the Shrine – According to Vastu Shastra, your household shrine must be placed in the north-eastern corner of your house where you can worship Brass Idols of Hindu Gods and generally find a space to meditate and connect with the cosmic energies. You can use mood lighting and burn aromatic oils to create a generally positive atmosphere.
Vastu Shastra is an ancient Indian science that holds relevance even today and genuinely helps in enhancing the positivity in your home.
