Vastu Shastra (Ancient Literature of Science Information On Dwelling Vastu Shastra) SubhaVaastu.com
Vastu Shastra: From the day of civilization humans always searched the best and comfortable shelters ( later built homes/properties) to live. In olden days our elders practiced such a system of local practicable methods of constructing their residences, as per their availability of knowledge and information they built their homes. Most of their homes were getting leaking issues in rainy seasons, many of them struggled to protect their agricultural products from rains, which the agricultural production stored in their homes. Even today also we may found such problems in many villages.
Fortunately most of us never have such horrible complications which our elders faced, as science developed and many new inventions made us tension-less life. Those days also Vastu Consultants were available in the society, but due to communication problem they were not been called from long distances. Now, from USA, UK, Australia, Singapore, Malaysia, residents are calling within seconds and getting clarified of their doubts and welcoming Vastu Specialists to their properties.
Vastu shastra is a scientific phenomenon like any other sciences. As was vogue in the ancient times to make science acceptable, people resorted to use science in the religious vehicle. For in those days religion was fairly tolerant and acceptable to large population as it was very relevant and rational in its usage. Down the ages religion became dogmatic and unsuitable for rational thinking. In this scenario fortunately the ancient text on scientific temper remained fairly unpolluted. However further complications of superstitions and prejudices have greatly damaged the religious society. The religion was unable to be freed from these tentacles. This scientific temper which flourished during the ancient period has to be resurrected so that it serves the mankind as intended it does no exception. The present day it has its deep routes in the ancient wisdom, yet not shackled by the medieval dogmas. It is now a regular science like any other such as biology, psychology, metallurgy etc.
Day after day many new things were discovered in every sector fields including this home construction. Based on such new developments, residents searched for the best to fit for their homes and apply them to their structures. Along with the standard structures, for example no leakages, protection from many other nature/surroundings effects like heavy rains, winds, sun light etc and further they also searched for the luck to be filled into their homes and minimize the bad evil force effects on their homes. In due course again start hunting for the same and researched for the mentors in philosophical and spiritual topics who were renowned for profound wisdom. Later (this matter is from www.subhavaastu.com) they knows about "Vastu Shastra", which was written by many of our Indian great Rushis, Sages, Sanths, experts in this field. If we have the burning desire to know about this science then dive into this ocean, how much depth you reached you may get such valuable and precious gems of information. As much deep you are reaching that much secrets will be revealed.
India is a great land where numerous great personalities took birth. Some of our Sages and Rishis worked tirelessly and helped mankind with their God's Divine Knowledge blessed science i.e., Vastu Shastra. They formulated many rules in this subject and granted to humans to fight against evils, anti natural forces, negative effects and other problems too. Their main concern is mankind should live with peace. Vaasthu is nothing but living with peace. Sincere Pranams to our elders.
Residents blessed who Lives in Vaasthu Principled Homes:
If the property is constructed with the help of five elements, the same structure may became a house of peace and prosperity. Five Elements such as
4. Water/Jal and finally
Most of the people in our society accepting that there is a power/shakthi which is controlling every thing of this universe, which may not be really visible. That may be of God either lord Shiva or lord Vishnu or may be Five Elements. These Five Elements or Panchabhootas which resides in the nature in a specific predetermined proportion and governing by an supreme creation, which may beyond our human evaluated comprehension. Study of these elements may be necessary before entering into our Vasthu Subject.
People scores the best achievements and developed when they about to follow literal principles of Vastu Shastra, like wise residents has to face numerous obstacle troubles when they neglect constructive methods.
Here first we should learn about What is Vastu Shastra? For instance the meaning of sorrow is either pain of difficult similarly we have to define what vaastu means. "Peace of mind" to the family members, inhabitants acquires peace, prosperity during their living time in that principled home. Many thought that Money is the ultimate answer for all questions, its totally wrong, we can’t buy everything with money, we can’t buy many things like . . . "Mother’s love".
As per our old literature "Vasthu" means "Vasathi" or "Vaasa" it means living under one roof, later these words has been changed to present word "Vaastu", in some areas the spelling is also been changed as Bastu / Baastu in Bengal area. Remaining all parts of the world is it said to be "Vaastu" or "Vasthu" or "Vaasthu" What ever the spelling it may (this matter is from www.subhavaastu.com) be the meaning of all the words are same. Generally people called this word as "Vastu Shastra". In simple this science means getting peace or satisfaction or development. There is nothing equals other than that of satisfaction. We are aware that satisfaction is the ultimate in humans life, there is no equivalent for this satisfaction.
From the very beginning we had been in touch with so called rich people and noticed lack of peace of mind, so the importance of peace of mind is unlimited. The influence of vaasthu is no doubt the peace of mind for the House holders. Those who suffered with health, wealth, debts, quarrels, court cases, property loss, misunderstandings, facing troubles at family life, disputes, frustration and tension and they look forward towards peace.
People who had frustration, negative outlook will crave for the peace and finally turned to follow this science principles and come out of their problems. Those who follow this science for their constructions will attain their desired goals and perfect happiness.
The property which built with principles provides peace and satisfaction to the residents who lives in that respected property, to learn more on this subject please check our website other pages which has plenty of information that may provides much data to study more on this subject.
Coming to the Books and authors, India has numerous great personalities who served unlimited wisdom of this information to our generations.
Before entering into the books information its good idea to know atleast some thing of our Vedas and other scripts. Our elders are saying that Puranas are the governing literature of our Hindu Dharma. Veda Vyasa, the great epic Mahabharatha narrator is considered as the connoisseur of our Puranas. Vyasa become Veda Vyasa who classified vadas, so his name Vyasa become popular as Veda Vyasa.
Veda means "Knowledge", "Wisdom". Veda Vyasa is the son of Parasara Maharshi. It is trusted that there were around 64 Puranas and consisting of 18 Mahapuranas, 18 essential Upa Puranas and the remaining Upa Puranas.
There are total 4 Vedas. The 1. Rigveda. 2. Yajurveda, 3. Samaveda and 4. Atharvaveda. Vedas consisting of Samhitas (Samhita generally describes Mantras), Aranyakas (generally delivers of rituals, sacrifices and ceremonies), Brahmanas (some explanations or commentaries of ceremonies, rituals and finally sacrifices), Upanishads ( Explaining of philosophy, meditation and spiritual knowledge) later few of scholars adds a 5th division like Upasanas (Poojas or worships).
Its tough to get the exact dates and period of writings of Puranas. Later 18 mahapuranas were divided into 3 groups of 6 total comes to 18. Each were names after a God's or deity name like Brahma, Vishnu and Siva for example, Brahmapuranam, Vishnupuranam and Sivapuranam.
Even the non orthodox (Naasthika) were read our Vedas may turned into Orthodox (Aasthika). By knowing the unbeatable information at Vedas the Indian philosophy which taught at some schools cite Vedas as their literature authority, but Sramana traditions like Carvaka, Lokayata, Ajivika, Jainism and BUddhism may not refer these Vedas as authoritative references.
Deep discussions has to be still requires to analyse our Vedas. Based on many scriptural authorities it has to be noted that Vedas played a prominent role in BC periods.

"Amara Sinha" a great poet and Sanskrit grammarian in Chandragupta Vikramaditya period, wrote a sanskrit dictionary of "Amarakosha" which contains words more than 10,000. This dictionary divided into three chapters. 1. Svargadikhanda, 2. Bhuvargadikhanda, 3. Samanyadhikhanda.
In Bhuvardgaikhanda it was written about Vasthu word and was referred as Site which is good for construction of a residence. On those days Amarakosha was a authenticated dictionary.
Require corrections from here: Other treatises such as Agni Purana and works by Kautilya and Sukracharya are not popular even though they preceded the previously mentioned documents. Distinction of style exists due to each document's place of origin.
Mayamata and Mansara Silpa Shastra are considered Dravidian because they are from South India whereas Viswaskarama Vaastu Shastra is considered Aryan belongs to North Indian origin.
Out of all the above Viswakarma Vasthu shastra is considered to be very familiar. Following this science principles are recommended, but not recommended for the unwanted or over-expectations. For example: if you want to become Prime Minister of India by doing corrections to your property, its highly impossible. But it supports to ambition which is considerable for your status. (this matter is from www.subhavaastu.com) There should be limitations to the desires. If not, some thing may be wrong in your home.
Following Vastu Tips and principles for the constructions may remove all such bad cravings and worries. In simple words Vaasthu means a system of construction that renders peace, satisfactory life to the residents. This subject in fact, is a very ancient science from Indian land.
Its knowledge can enable us to get benefits of mental peace, health, wealth etc, and make our lives happy and easier. This science, after propounding the rules of construction, goes to prove that by constructing properly our buildings, villages, towns, cities, shops, offices, factories and industries, we can make ourselves prosperous.
On the contrary, the residents of such buildings are at variance with the rules of this science, may suffers with several calamities in their life, shortages, diseases and financial insecurity throughout their lives. Our ancient sages and Rushis created Vaastu shastra for the welfare of entire humanity.
When Vaasthu is learnt and followed, wealth blossoms in their life and it provides them with grace after their death also. Before buying any property it is always advisable to have one expert guidance to enjoy peaceful and secured future.

The ancient literature is aimed to help mankind live a better life. Towards this end some of the positive effects that, one could expect by living in principled home are as under:
1. Better living conditions consequent to good health, steadiness in life and happiness.
2. A good reputation in the society and neighborhood.
3. Possibility of increased prosperity, peace of mind consequent to having low conflicts within one self.
4. Generally successful life in all activities.
5. Clear and one pointedness in approach of any problem.
6. Getting all needful desires, satisfactorily resolved.
7. Overcoming all adverse situations harmoniously.
8. Living a contented life.
9. It is said that people who have got a clear head make a better life, this statement is apt in the home which is constructed with principles.
10. If an activity is completed with least stress and anxiety consequently one would not feel fatigued.
11. Needless to say that residences and offices not compliant with principles have got inherent problems. Even though one may be very sharp and logical and clear headed, in non compliant residence or office for that matter giving out negative vibrations, is prevented from striking the bulls eye and so generate conflict within himself thus doubting his judgement. Consequently he has invited worries and anxiety, one need not go beyond regarding the consequences of such actions where the author starts doubting his own judgement.
12. One of the ills of non compliance residences is lack of harmony in the house leading to constant conflicts within the family. One need not elaborate the consequences further.
13. One should not be thinking that living in a home which constructed with this science principles Home is panacea for inaction's willful unsocial activities and the like. One's own actions will be moderated by the forces that are generated in the residences in which the person lives. If it is a principled home it helps enhancing harmony in all endeavors the persons undertakes leading to happy dispositions in life. If on the other hand the residences are non complaint its negative influences will cloud the rational thinking of otherwise a normal person where one starts doubting one's own abilities.

Above all, you explained very well the reasons behind changes you recommended for my home with great clarity and sense of humor. No doubt in my mind, you are the best Vastu expert, I really appreciate your dedication by building and maintaining a very informative website that is helping thousands of people across the globe. Also, I sensed when I talk to you and when I was dealing with you, you follow honesty and integrity and you have a sincere desire to help others - Kotesware Rao - Dallas - USA
We are tech professionals and working in USA. After a year long search we brought the house. After buying the house I started looking for consultant who can help me evaluating the house. I came across Subhavaastu website which has lot of information. I contacted Mr.Suresh and requested him to help with our house vastu. It has been a great pleasure working with him. He is very detailed oriented person and never compromises with his work. I am typically not interested to deliver the reviews. But after working with Mr. Suresh I decided to share my experience. Mr. Suresh has great expertise in providing vastu consultation to USA property. He is always available through email and phone l to answer questions. I am writing this review hoping it will help other people like me who lives in abroad. Please take advise before buying the house. I highly recommend Mr. Suresh as he has great experience with structure of USA properties and also he provides genuine consultation. I really appreciate Mr. Suresh's help in evaluating our house - Padma - Boston - USA
Hello Sir, My name is Bharathi. Me and my husband have been reading your articles closely. We really appreciate the effort put by you to share your knowledge about vastu and it’s effects - Bharathi - USA.
I have consulted Suresh Garu during December 2014 during the process of buying a house in Texas, USA. I have occupied the house for one year now, and feel like dropping a review regarding my experience during the entire process. I am very much satisfied with the kind of service I received from him. He is very knowledgeable and I was often stunned by his detailed analysis during the course of my interaction with him. He was very much accessible over phone (perhaps more than 10 times for one house plan!) and the price is very much reasonable especially compared with the cost of the house. I noticed his burning desire to help me in making informed decisions on certain things. I have seen some people pretending to know this subject and misguiding those who come for help by saying only what we want to hear. SubhaVaastu is definitely not that one. Finally, I am strong believer of leaving certain things to experts in those subjects. I have been in US for more than 13 years and have seen people doing their own corrections (by reading website articles) trying to save few dollars. Please don’t do that. You would end up in causing more damage. I highly recommend you to engage SubhaVaastu in your next project - Satish - Dallas - TX - USA
