Vastu, Your Home and Happiness
|by Niranjan Babu Bangalore|
Vastu, the ancient science of Indian architecture is very relevant to a home and its happiness. This great science relates to the Vedas, the wisdom books of India. Each sector of a quadrangle (Mandala) is identified with the primary elements of Nature. When these identifications are studied carefully, we can apply them to bring in happiness into the family. Disturbances in a family can broadly relate to peace of mind, behaviour, education, routine family conflicts/confrontations, health, profession and finances.
Peace of Mind
Dear parents, will you try to prevent or minimize the problems arising out of the infantile actions or inaction of other members of the family or would you first give yourselves enough strength to face the onslaught from family members ? ! I would prefer you get enough strength first and then think of trying to solve the problems of the family members. The right and legitimate Vastu place for you in the house is the South-west or if that is not available the South of the house. In this area, you need to spend at least eight hours a day.
Good behaviour of family members is one important aspect of family happiness. When each member of the family understands his/her responsibility towards the family, happiness stays intact, but when one rebels without worrying about one’s own responsibility, peace in the family begins to drift away. Such rebelling could be in the form of disturbing behaviour. It could be in the form of verbal aggression on other family members for no rhyme or reason, and can sometimes, be even in the form of physical violence.
Education (or lack of it) is another important aspect if life which invariably adds (or lessens) to the happiness in a family. We see children doing extremely well and parents are delighted about it. We also see children not faring well inspite of their own hard study and the constant coaxing of the parents to study. How can we make them study better ?
We also find that normal day to day conflicts among the family members also affect peace of mind of the parents and elders of the family. These disturbances can sometimes be traced to the South-west. Check if there is a water source (water sump or well) in the South-west of the house and if so, close it by filling it up with cement or earth. If you find that the South-west of the house is chopped off, this could also be the reason for the hostility among the family members leading to depression in the elders’ rational thinking.
Health is another important aspect of family happiness. General health can be improved by sleeping with the head placed South. Disturbed minds can make use of central East rooms with their beds to the South-west corners of the room and not touching the walls. My remarks earlier on the importance of health can be studied with advantage in this context.
Contentment and happiness in your profession is another contributory factor to family happiness. Apart from looking into the placements of your room in your office and the arrangement of furniture in that room, it is necessary that you get used to facing East. The East sector ruled by the Sun is synonymous with health — physical and mental. You will be able to think properly and take fair decisions on anything related to your profession.
Financial stringency is another factor that contributes to family unhappiness. We find people complaining that the inflow of revenue does not match their hard and sincere effort. We can trace improper flow of money to several factors. The ancient works have invariably recommended a North of North-east water source. We find that temples, which are financially prosperous, have their Pushkarnis or water areas in the North of North-east. If you are planning to go for a well, underground water tank, a bore or even a swimming pool you can locate it in the North of North-east of your site.
