Origin Of Vastu, the Ancient Traditional science from Indian Region :
The origin of vastu shastra may have taken place well over thousands of years ago. The learned men of those days may not have lived in houses themselves but they most definitely dedicated their lives to the development of the science "Vastushastra" or "vaastu", as it is popularly known today as "Vastu". Those days the system of following vastu shastra is a purely based on compilations of the greatest spiritual gurus or philosophical renowned wisdom people or Kings servant Mentor, a wise and trusted guide and adviser who practiced vastu shastra.
Those days the system is purely different. Now a days the entire construction was totally changed from mud to cement and concrete with steel structures. The principles of the Science laid down during those days were based purely on the effect of sun-rays during different times of the day. The observations and corrections made were noted and concluded. Vastu is a part of Vedas, which are believed to be four to five thousand years old. Through penance and meditation yogis of that period acquired answers believed to have come from the cosmic mind itself to their questions. Hence Vedas are heeded with divine knowledge. The art of Vasthu originates in the Stapatya Veda, a part of the Atharvana Veda(Vedic).
It used to be a purely technical subject and it was only confined to architects (Sthapatis) and handed over to their heirs. The principles of construction, architecture, sculpture etc., as enunciated in the epics and treatise on temple architecture, have been incorporated in the science of Vaastu. Its description is there in epics like Mathsya Purana, Skanda Purana, Agni Purana, Garuda Purana, and Vishnu Purana. There are some other ancient shastra that pass over the knowledge of vaastu shastra to next generation, like Vishvakarma Prakash, Samraangan Sutradhar, Kashyap Shilpshastra, Vrihad Sanhit (bruhat samhita), and Praman Manjare.
In the Mahabharata it is said a number of houses were built for the kings who were invited to the city Indraprastha for the Rajasuya Yagna of King Yuddhistira. Sage Vyasa says that these houses were as high as the peaks of Kailasa Mountains, perhaps meaning that they stood tall and majestic. The houses were free from obstructions, had compounds with high walls and their doors were of uniform height and inlaid with numerous metal ornaments. It is said that the site plan of Ayodhya, the city of Lord Rama was similar to the plan found in the great architectural text Manasara. References are also to be found in Buddhist literature, of buildings constructed on the basis of Vastu.
They contain references to individual buildings. Lord Buddha is said to have delivered discourses on architecture and even told his disciples that supervising the construction of a building was one of the duties of the order. Mention is made of monasteries (Viharas) or temples, buildings, which are partly residential, and partly religious (Ardhayogas), residential storeyed buildings (Prasadas), multi-storeyed buildings (harmyas) and Guhas or residential buildings for middle class people. The Vaasthu, with word meaning 'dwelling', is believed to be the residing places of god and man. According to its modern meaning it covers all buildings irrespective of their use like residences, industries, business establishments, lodges, hotels etc. It is based on the five basic and essential elements, such as Vaayu (air), Agni (fire), Jal (water), Bhumi (earth) and Aakasha (space), which are known as Panchabutas. Everything on earth is built from these Five Elements.
Our scholar Ramakrishna says about Origina of Vastu Shastra: The Origin of Vastu shastra is difficult to be traced as it is lost in antiquity. The ancient Indian sages have divided the cosmic calendar into into 4 broad stages, namely Kritha, Thretha, Dwapara, and Kaliyug. Man came on the scene perhaps in Threthayug and the origin of Vastu shastra is traced to this period only. During this period of development communication being what they were resulted this knowledge getting restricted to ruling and elite class of this society only. Thus depriving the large society benefits of this science. In course of time, science, things have changed, democracy has replaced the autocratic Government and more than any thing else individual freedom has become the supreme possession of man. Further the present information explosion has had the beneficial efforts of making the science available to one and all. Vastu Shastra appears to be an obstruct science until we know actually. For practical application confirm the knowledge. The study of Vastu shastra starts with the knowledge of the basic five elements of creation, Space, Sun, Air, Water and Earth.
If a plot or the construction there on is in conformity with the aspects of this five elements, that is Vastu shastra science, the residents of the plot or the construction have an opportunity to live in conformity of the basic five elements and thus prosper. If, however, such is not the case, progress in life of the residents is rather difficult. In fact it is rather difficult to precisely define the term Vastu shastra. In my opinion Vastu shastra means a construction method compatible with progress and happy prosecution applied or a construction that bestows peace of mind (to the residents).
Material possession alone or not a substitute to the mental happiness for non is greater than one enjoying bliss. We are acutely aware the best of earthly possession alone cannot give us bliss for at best they can give you a momentary pleasure. How ever when the life goes on in a positive manner it will lead to a blissful state of mind. Basically Vastu shastra ensues the prospects of prosecuting a happy and prosperous way of life as an example if a person desires to become an influential member of the society (may be a doctor, advocate, engineer or influential political leader or the like) and makes appropriate efforts in chosen field if his residence is Vastu shastra complaint, there are far greater chances of success. If a business man invests a large sum in his enterprise, and his residence is Vastu shastra complaint, it helps him in preventing losses and promoting progress in his venture.
A Vastu complaint home bestows on his residence and exalted life accompanied by name and fame in society and hence to mental happiness. He does not mean, however, that the residence will automatically become leaders of society etc without their own efforts in the chosen direction. This is an obstruct science drawn from the science of Meta physics. I would urge people to recall what Einstein has said about Meta physics. Quote: “what is Meta physics today is physics tomorrow, in fact there is very thin difference between these two”. Some people how ever deny the science of Vastu shastra. For them I have a simple solution when you are building a house kindly do build the same as per Vastu shastra science, this does not cost extra and there is no loss to you either. On the other hand it would (nay-may) have beneficial efforts.

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
The website Subhavaastu.com is very informative.Sureshji, the founder of this website is according to me a great ¨human who has vast knowledge in vastushastra and his kindness to his clients are appreciated. He listens to his clients problems patiently and gives the appropriate remedies. His main motto is good service and he responses as quick as possible. I spoke to Sureshji as a stranger only, but after one phone call itself , I started feeling that he is a caring well wisher for whoever asks his help. He is a genuine person. He doesn't force you to spend money in the name of vasthushastra, he explains clearly where the problem is and tries to give very easy changes to have a peaceful life. Sathya Priya - Switzerland
We are tech professionals and working in USA. After a year long search we brought the house. After buying the house I started looking into vaastu consultant who can help me evaluating the house. I came across Subhavaastu website which has lot of vaastu 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 vaastu 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 vaastu 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 vaastu - Padma - Boston - USA
I have consulted SubhaVaastu (Suresh Gaaru) 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 Subhavaastu. He is very knowledgeable about vaastu 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 Vaastu 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 vaastu (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

In our culture women are highly venerated. However generally it is seen in each and every incident they are the ones at the receiving end. Some how or other she is the target for all situations particularly when things are not doing well. Rather we make it that the cause of all evils is woman only. If in this unfortunate situation, if she loses her husband or is divorced her life is hell and she bares the brunt. Where a woman is not respected every body suffers and where they are respected and venerated every adverse situation can be overcome. Pray we realize this soon. Helping women who are in distress is a noble cause. we from SubhaVaastu would like to help such women who are in need of help like this. Widowed women and divorcees may contact us for FREE vastu consultation till end of January 2017. With this small service we do hope some relief is possible for such women who are in need of these services and cannot afford otherwise. More details available at Free Vastu Services page.

Joke Of the Day
"Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson went on a camping trip. After a good meal and a bottle of wine, they laid down for the night, and went to sleep. Some hours later, Holmes awoke and nudged his faithful friend. "Watson, look up at the sky and tell me what you see." Watson replied, "I see millions and millions of stars." "What does that tell you?" Watson pondered for a minute. "Astronomically, it tells me that there are millions of galaxies, and potentially billions of planets. Astrologically, I observe that Saturn is in Leo. Horologically, I deduce that the time is approximately a quarter past three. Theologically, I can see that God is all powerful and that we are small and insignificant. Meteorologically, I suspect that we will have a beautiful day tomorrow. What does it tell you?" Holmes was silent for a minute, then spoke. "It tells me that someone has stolen our tent."
