What Is Vastu Shastra For House

What is Vastu Vastu Shastra is the science of “Bhawan Sthapatya Kala” or house-craft. It is the science of architecture and much more than that. Its definition extends into the realm of occultism. It was practised in ancient India for the construction and designing of Hindu temples and sometimes even for the dwellings of important men. Since temples were built in accordance with Vastu Shastra, you will find a remarkable unity of aesthetic purposes in Hindu temple designs even when these temples were built under different dynastic powers. It was this unified philosophy of temple design which was later put together into a system of rules called the Vastu Shastras  This science, which was earlier limited to the designing of temple architecture, was revived by Vaidyanatha Ganapati Sthapati (a Hindu temple architect and builder) in the 1980s.  It was because of his efforts that once again the glory of this ancient science of traditional Hindu architecture was restored in modern India. It was him and others like him who did a lot of in-depth research on Vastu Shastra, thus making it easier for the people to comprehend and incorporate it in building and designing their houses. People realized its significance and started applying its principles when building their houses, purchasing lands and even before taking up office spaces. The basic principle behind Vastu Shastra is to make your dwelling congenial by incorporating the best of the five elements of nature in it.  It blends the science of direction and the benefits of elements of nature with the design and structure of a building so that you enjoy a living space that fosters health, happiness and...
