Vastu Shastra: Is It only Science of Architecture??

Welcome to Nepal Engineering Services.

Vastu Sastra is science of architecture and also the science of metaphysics, geography, cosmology, astronomy and geology. Our solar system illustrates the cosmological aspect of vastu in best possible way. Apart from the earth in which we live in, there are many systems which influence our live and activities. The six formulae (Ayadi Shadvarga), that are used to construct residental house and temples, illustrate astronomical aspect of vastu sastra. Vastu sastra contains traditional hindu and buddhist customs. Vastu integrates architecture with nature.

In hindu tradition, Vastu shastra is explained in detail in Brihat Samhita whose english version is provided below, in which Vastu Shastra is explained as
"I will now explain for the happiness of the astronomers and astrologers the science of architecture that has come down from Brahma through a steady line of intellectuals." The importance of drawing Vastu Purusha Mandala or plan before starting construction explains the metaphysical aspect of Vastu. The Mandala is a ritual symbol indicating whole universe in the form of drawing. The testing of soil in cases of colour, taste, touch, smell and sound highlights the geological aspect of Vastu Shastra.
Vastu is science and art with the aim of making human habitat beautiful, strong with happiness and positive vibes for long period of time. For further query on Vastu please leave comment on my post and share if you like it.
