EARTH (Bhumi | Dharani) : - Earth, the third planet in order from the Sun / Suryadev, is a big magnet with North and South poles as centers of attractions. Its magnetic field and gravitational force has telling effects on everything on the Earth, living and non-living. It is tilted by about 23 ½ degrees at the meridian. It comprises of the land structure, land form, landscape, flora and fauna. It also establishes availability of local construction materials and their workability. In India, we worship our Bhumi and give her a place of our mother. Element earth is supposed to have been formed over 4 billion years ago. The third planet round the Sun is Earth. Its huge magnetic mass having north and south poles with the help of a magnet (available every where), we can clearly locate these north and south directions and hence all other directions. When a magnet is suspended or held freely one pole of the magnet clearly always shows the north and other pole south.
WATER (Jal | Paani) : - This is represented by rain, river, sea and is in the form of liquid, solid (ice) and gas (steam, cloud). It forms part of every plant and animal. Our blood is nothing but water with hemoglobin and oxygen. The habitat and physical life are where water is present. This is true for all life forms and Eco-cultures. The type, form and pattern of life also greatly depend on relationship of earth and water. If we see our history, all the cultures had developed on the bank of any water bodies, so this shows the influence of the water on our life, since ages. Water is an important element in the sustenance of life of whether man animal or vegetation. such water availability in the house should be at an appropriate position to give out its best. Such place in the house is northeast side. Water availability in other sides such as east and north or also acceptable. Harnessing of water in other directions such as West or South or Southwest is harmful.
AIR (Vaayu) : - As a life-supporting element, air is very powerful life source. Pure air with oxygen is good for brain and blood. Atmosphere of earth, which is about 400 kms. , In depth, Oxygen, Nitrogen, Carbon-Di-oxide, Helium, other gases, dust particles, humidity and vapor in certain proportions. Human physical comfort values are directly and sensitively dependent on correct humidity, airflow, and temperature of air, air pressure, air composition and its content. In this aspect, air deals with the entire body surface through skin, blood system - through respiration. Air also represents the movement. There is no life without air, even fish in deep ocean breath air, if this element is harnessed, it will be an unasked boon to the residents. Air coming from northeast side through doors or windows etc is Benevolent, placement of doors and windows in North and East side also is hugely beneficial.
FIRE (Agni) : - It represents light and heat without which the life will extinct. All the days and nights, seasons, energy, enthusiasm, passion, vigor is because of light and heat only. Sun is a source of mental energy too. Best minds evolve in a natural process where the sun was temperate. Not very hot, not very cold, just the right temperature of 24 degrees. The different zones with the variety of climate have distinctive culture and architecture. Sun has played an important role in development of visual qualities of architecture in terms of textures, colors and above all the expressions of vitality. Fire element embraces Sun, Fire, brilliance, brightness and the like. Sustenance of life is due to Sun alone, there is no life without Sun, and no life either. It is said fire is messenger of God, Hindus solemnize every activity in front of fire. Good does happen with Fire and bad too depending upon how we use the same. We use fire to warm us up in winter increasing the fire for greater warm,. But never be so mad as to sit on it. In house construction Southeast portion of the house is allotted for the Fire element. Fire in Southeast side of the house results in good digestion leading to good health, if Southeast area is defective in nature, it affects the female folk, second child of the family etc. if the lady of the house does not enjoy sound health, the whole family suffers resulting in loss of peace and happiness. What ever be the external problems one faces atleast at home there should be peace and harmony. And what cant be achieved if there be mental happiness?.. People lacking mental happiness often commit blunders even in elementary works. This is the phenomenon we see in every day life.
SPACE (Aakash | Shunya | Soonya): - All the above elements are skillfully engineers towards the creation of physically comfortable, emotionally pleasant, intellectually determinant, totally vibrant and blissfully satisfying spaces for human shelter and habitat. It is unending regions remote from the earth, in which not only our solar system but the entire galaxy exists. Its effective forces are light, heat, gravitational force and waves, magnetic field and others. Space is the reference element for all creation. Every creation is within this element alone. All the planets Gods and Goddesses, the several stars and their constellations are contained in it.
The ideal habitats, cultures, architecture and life have naturally shown exhilaration where all the five elements, to support life, are abundantly available and are suitable to human growth and evolution. This is an invisible and constant relation between these elements outside and those within an individual and in his living and working places. Thus, the man can improve his conditions by properly designing his buildings by understanding the effectiveness of these five natural forces.
All Vastu science is using land (earth) in a proper manner, it is for this reason there is no vastu for things in motion such as vehicles, trains, Aero planes, ships etc. Which means that a bus cannot be built on Vastu principles, for that matter any moving object (moving relating to earth).
I remember a rather funny incidence, some big wig from Bidar (a district in Karnataka) telephoned me to recommend him suitable vaastu advises for seats, tops etc for a bus body building. I declined the same on which, he became angry, he could not see elementary logic. If a bus is heading towards say North after few moments it may be heading towards south or any other directions. For such a thing where is vasthu? Explaining this I declined. On which he became angry, a fortnight later he again telephoned and then said a Vaasthu scholar indeed advised him on the same matter. At this point I remember a childhood story, a man saw a crane standing on one leg near a lake and thus proclaimed that indeed, cranes have only one leg. Such people do exist now also and there are suitable vastu shastra scholars to cater to them as well. This is wholesale decoity. Pray the readers are aware of this and save themselves and the vastu shastra science and consult only honest and reliable vastu scholars. I urge my website respected visitors before buying any property or for all of your vaastu shastra consultancy services it is always better to choose only the best expert vastu consultant in Indiaonly.
