Do not renovate, design, purchase, rent or build a property without checking or observing the ancient science of Vasthu Sastra.   The 5,000-year old  science of dwelling assures  health, wealth, happiness, harmonious living and peace of mind. Although old, the  Indian science can still be applied in modern times. When building, living or working in a property, one has to be in tune with the universal energies around us so that we are in balance with the cosmic forces. Vasthu is based on the arrangements and balancing of the five elements in their proper order and proportions. It can be practised without tearing down walls or carrying out renovations because it is an art of the placement of things. Vasthu is not magic, superstition, a religion or religious ritual, and does not work on a belief system. It is also not a question of faith but a fact of life.



  1. Q: What is Vasthu Sastra?

A: Vasthu Sastra is a 5,000-year-old Indian science of dwelling found in the Vedas, ancient scripture. Vasthu is based on the arrangements and balancing of the five elements ”“ ether, air, fire, water and earth in their proper order and proportions.

It focuses on the law of nature and flow of energy and anyone living in tune with the cosmic forces will enjoy beneficial energy flowing into their property.

A: Anyone observing the principles of Vasthu Sastra in any enclosed space will be blessed with health, happiness, peace of mind, love and prosperity. A dweller in harmony with the environment will enjoy a less stressful life.


  1. Q: Is Vasthu Sastra associated with any religion or superstition?

A: Vasthu Sastra is a universal science. It is not magic, superstition or a religion, although some of its followers may consider it part of their religious rituals.

It also does not work on a belief system and Vasthu is not a question of faith but a fact of life. It can be followed by anyone and in any part of the world.


  1. Q: When should a dweller practice Vasthu?

A: The recommended time to follow it is when an individual is purchasing, designing, renovating, leasing or building a property. If a dweller is experiencing problem like financial, health, relationship and unhappiness, the individual is urged to observe Vasthu Sastra principles to ease the situation.


  1. Q: Can it be followed without tearing down walls and renovations?

A: Yes, it can be observed without demolishment and renovations as it involves the art of placement of things.


  1. Q: How fast does it work or a dweller can experience changes?

If the placements of things in a property are followed above 50% as per Vasthu, the dweller can see improvements in several weeks. There are people who have experience goodness within a few days. For this to happen, it all depends as to how many percent a dweller wants to follow the recommendations of Vasthu.


7. Q: How is the direction of a property determined in Vasthu Sastra?

A: The direction of a property should be determined by using a compass and never use sunrise to establish the direction. Once a dweller has fixed the direction, the quadrant of the elements are drawn for the placement of things in the proper proportions in a property.


8. Q: Is the astrology of an individual considered in Vasthu Sastra analysis?

The astrology of an individual is only taken into consideration in Vasthu to determine the favourable direction of the property ”“ that is, if the dweller is building a house on a fresh piece of land. Otherwise, his or her astrology is not incorporated because it would be difficult to find a ready-made house to match a property owner’s horoscope unless the dweller designs and build the house.   Not matching the horoscope is not a major affliction to a dweller.   The other areas where astrology is taken into consideration in Vasthu are when choosing an auspicious date for starting a new construction, performing a house-warming ceremony and moving into a property.


9. Q: What can a dweller experience if he or she does not observe Vasthu Sastra principles?

The defects in a non-complied Vasthu property will not affect a dweller when he or she is going through a favourable period in the individual’s astrology. However, during the unfavourable astrological period of the individual, the defects in the property will affect the breadwinner seriously


10. Q: What is the difference between Vasthu Sastra and feng shui from China?

Both sciences, to a great extent, share similarities and are based on centuries of observations of nature and the surroundings and how they affect people and other living and even non-living things. Both aim at contributing harmony, prosperity, health and happiness although there may be a few differences and contradictions in the way both are observed or practised.

Vasthu is based on the energy flow among the nine planets and feng shui sees the planetary forces as the determining factors in the distribution of energy.

The five basic elements in feng shui are described as metal, wood, water, fire and earth while Vasthu considers wood and metal as part of earth and includes the additional elements of ether and air. In Vasthu defects cannot be corrected simply by placing a mirror, plants, hanging a picture and other tools but recommends the moving things within the property to the correct direction and location.
