VASTU IN TODAY's ARCHITECTURE

Architect now-a- days prepare house- plans without considering the principles and rules given by ancient vastu shastra. They keep in mind the latest designs, irritating the design based on foreign culture but if the basic principles of vastu satisfying the five basic materials (Punch Mahabhutas ) are ignored the house becomes the root cause of troubles, losses and sorrows in the life of the inmates. e.g. it has becomes a fashion these days to construct kitchen near main gate. Reason for doing so is that for most of the time a house wife has to remain in the kitchen and it is easy to her to keep eye on the main door.

Also it is very strange thing I feel that if anybody visit the house he/she should be received by the head of the family in drawing room/foyer/BAITHAK.according to their purpose of visit and relation to the house owner.

Indian vastu shastra devides the house into 16 parts wherein room for various purpose should be constructed, keeping the directions in mind as follows.

"SANASYA PAK SHANGANASTRA BHUJESHCHA DHANYA DHANDAS

DAIVAT GRIHANI CH POORVATAH SYUH

TANMODHYTOATH MATHANAYAJA PUREERHA VIDYABHYASAKHYA

RODANASATOUSHADHA SARVADHAM"

Rooms should be constucted in following directions:

  • EAST------------------------------------------------- Bath Room

  • SOUTH EAST------------------------------------- Kitchen

  • SOUTH--------------------------------------------- Bed Room

  • SOUTH-WEST------------------------------------ Room of weapon

  • WEST------------------------------------------------ Dining Room

  • NORTH-WEST------------------------------------ Grain Store

  • NORTH---------------------------------------------- Treasury

  • NORTH-EAST-------------------------------------- Room of Worship

  • Between EAST and SOUTH EAST---------- Room for churning card

  • Between SOUTH and SOUTH EAST------- Room for storage for ghee etc.

  • Between NORTH and NORTH WEST ----- Punishment Room for Expressing Sympathy or sorrow

  • Between NORTH and NORTH WEST ----- Bedroom for Young Couple

Beside These ,There are other opinions also:
