Principles of Ancient Vedic Vastu Architecture

Principle of Ancient vedic vastu architecture

The ancient architecture of Vastu ensures that a building or community has only a nurturing effect on its occupants. This is due to the use of several basic Vedic Vastu principles based on natural laws:

Vedic Vastu

1. Correct Orientation:

The orientation of a property has a dramatic and easily measurable effect on the quality of life of its occupants. The energy of the sun is most nourishing when it rises. Buildings facing east bring the greatest advantage to the health and prosperity of the inhabitants. The human brain is sensitive to orientation and responds positively to the influence of the rising sun. If you look east, brain physiology works differently than if you look north, south, or west. This natural tendency of the brain to act according to direction follows the same laws of ancient Vedic Vastu architecture that govern the structural dynamics of creation and underlie all individual and cosmic values that maintain order in the universe. Ancient Vastu Houses are aligned cardinal directions for achieving beneficial effects such as good health, wealth and fulfilment. Especially buildings with an eastern entrance give the most favourable effect. Wrong orientation of the houses bring the consequences of fear, poverty, problems, failure and chronic diseases. Medical and statistical studies confirm the effect of orientation on our health and well-being. Of the eight possible directions (four cardinal and four diagonal directions), only two directions - east and north - have a completely beneficial effect. This means a big percentage of buildings are poorly oriented, causing poor health and all sorts of other social problems. This kind of flawed design and construction must be fixed to improve our lives.

2. Proper placement of rooms:

The energy properties of the sun change as it moves across the sky. Buildings that create happiness are designed in such a way that the different activities we do in different rooms of the home match the corresponding quality of the sun. The most powerful influence of natural laws on Earth comes from the sun. As it passes through the sky, it produces different types of energy. Homes should be designed so that the different energies of the sun correspond to the specific function and function of each room, and thus the law of nature supports our daily activities. Every home has an ideal place for a living room, kitchen, meditation room, office, etc. If these natural laws are correctly applied, for example, entering the study, a person will feel more alert, one naturally feels comfortable in the living room, and upon entering the meditation room, one naturally turns inward to enjoy the benefits of meditation. Ancient Vedic architecture considers these factors of proper placement to ensure all aspects of daily activities at home or in an office building conforms to the laws of nature.

3. Correct proportions:

Proportion is the key to successful design in nature. Correct proportions and proportions in buildings strengthen the connection of our individual intelligence with cosmic intelligence. When designing a house, the dimensions of the building are calculated using the ancient mathematical formulas of Aay Vastu of ancient Sthapatya Vedic architecture. These Vedic formulas consider the relationship of the home owner with the sun, moon, planets and stars, among others, to ensure perfect resonance between the cosmic structures and all parts of the house.

4. Natural and non-toxic materials and solar energy:

An important part of ancient Vedic architecture is sustainable construction, using natural, non-toxic materials suited to the local climate. This includes the use of materials such as wood, brick, compacted soil and adobe, as well as natural finishes such as plaster, marble, ceramic tiles, natural fibres in carpets, curtains and furniture, and healthy, natural, non-toxic paints and adhesives. Mobile homes are not built near harmful electromagnetic fields, such as those caused by high-voltage cables and microwave ovens. Special precautions are taken to ensure that electromagnetic fields do not spread throughout the home, including shielding all electrical wiring. Ideally, all Ancient Vastus materials and equipment should be clean and solid. More and more luxury homes are built using ecological and sustainable techniques that bring buildings more in line with the laws of nature. This includes an increasing number of buildings with a low or zero carbon footprint. They use technologies such as solar energy, photovoltaics, geothermal energy, daylight and rainwater harvesting.

5. Brahmasthan -

Many structures in nature have a silent core of intelligence, and the operations of the structure are organized around this core. We see it in the structure of galaxies, solar systems, cells and atoms. This core is called Brahmasthan or the place where the whole is located. As in the structures of nature, the building that creates Happiness also has a Brahmasthan. This element helps the building become a complete structure of natural law. Towns, cities and countries designed with ancient Vedic architecture also have Brahmasthan, so that every citizen is connected to the totality of cosmic life

6. Vastu also considers others important influences for example:

• Land slope
• Land form
• Unobstructed rising sun
• Environmental impact including waterways
• Favourable weather.

We will discuss about the above points in our upcoming blogs.
