Vastu Direction


What is Vas­tu Shas­tra? : It is one of the ancient teach­ings from the Indi­an civ­i­liza­tion. It deals with the sci­ence of the archi­tec­ture and tells how a build­ing should be planned to chan­nel­ize the pos­i­tive ener­gy in our lives. The prop­er imple­men­ta­tion of Vas­tu tech­niques has brought peace and pros­per­i­ty to many house­holds for cen­turies. Though Vas­tu start­ed out with the con­struc­tion rules for Hin­du tem­ples, it soon branched out to res­i­den­tial hous­es, office build­ings, vehi­cles, sculp­ture, paint­ings, fur­ni­ture etc. The sci­ence of Vas­tu is most­ly based on direc­tions and the build­ing mate­ri­als used, along with many oth­er minor fac­tors.

The five elements of Vastu Shastra

There are five ele­ments that are real­ly impor­tant in Vas­tu Shas­tra. The­se are–

  1. Earth
  2. Water
  3. Fire
  4. Air
  5. Space

Accord­ing to the tra­di­tion­al knowl­edge, the entire uni­verse around us is made up of the­se five basic ele­ments. In fact, the five ele­ments of the nature have to be coor­di­nat­ed with the five ele­ments of the human body as well.

Basic 8 direc­tions given by Vaas­tu are :


  1. East: East stands for sun­rise, or new begin­nings. It is very advan­ta­geous for peo­ple who are try­ing to end some­thing bad and get­ting start­ed with some­thing new. It is the direc­tion of pros­per­i­ty.
  2. West: The west is the direc­tion where the sun sets, which means that this direc­tion is not real­ly good for begin­nings. Store the garbage bins or build the garage in the west­ern direc­tion of the house.
  3. North: North is the direc­tion that is best for the busi­ness peo­ple who are inter­est­ed in apply­ing some Vas­tu in their lives. The plan­et that rules over this direc­tion is mer­cury, which makes it real­ly ben­e­fi­cial for peo­ple to have offices in this direc­tion. Do not put any stair­cas­es in the north, for it can pro­mote finan­cial loss in one’s life.Do not keep the kitchen in the north­ern part of the house
  4. South: The south is quite a con­tra­dic­to­ry direc­tion. There is some fear among those who fol­low Vas­tu Shas­tra about this direc­tion. This is because of the fact that there are mixed feel­ings about whether this direc­tion works for peo­ple or not. Say, if one builds a house with a south fac­ing entrance, they might be suc­cess­ful for the first few years, but after that the mon­ey will begin to stag­nate and even­tu­al­ly start decreas­ing.
  5. North East: North-east is the direc­tion of god. It is the most aus­pi­cious one and it is known to pro­mote pos­i­tive aspects in men and wom­en.
  6. North West : The north-west is the direc­tion that han­dles inter­per­son­al rela­tion­ships. The kind of rela­tion­ships peo­ple have with the oth­er mem­bers of the fam­i­ly cer­tain­ly depends on the same.
  7. South East: South-east is the direc­tion of the log­i­cal and rea­son­ing per­son. It is very ben­e­fi­cial to have the kitchen in this direction.Any elec­tri­cal instru­ments, like TVs, motors, bat­ter­ies, invert­ers, home the­atre, etc. should be placed on the south- east­ern side of the room.
  8. South West : This is the direc­tion of the demons, the oppo­site of north-east. As a result of this, it can com­mand the busi­ness field and the deci­sions made in that field.
