What is Vastu and Feng Shui?

Ancient wisdoms, such as Feng Shui or Vastu, believe that everything is made up of energy. Even things that we may have considered inanimate are made up of moving molecules and have a life force and vibration of their own. Objects also come “alive” because of how we relate to them, i.e. the memories and associations they trigger. These wisdoms affirm that all of these objects and materials in our homes interact with our own unique energy—either positively or negatively. When you look at your home from this perspective, you can clearly imagine the importance of surrounding yourself with things that you love, whether they are useful, beautiful, have positive personal meaning, or just make you feel good.

Even though you can’t see the energy in a room, many of us feel it. In fact, we have set up events that talks about "Simple Steps to Balancing Energies in your Home and within your Self"

What is Vastu Shastra?

Vastu: "Vā-a-stu" & Shastra: Sha-sā-trā

Vastu means the dwelling (or habitat) of humans & Gods. Shastra means Science.

Vastu shastra is an ancient science which helps one to get the natural benefits freely offered by the five basic elements of the universe (Cosmos) in which we all live. These basic elements are Aakash (SPACE), Prithvi (EARTH), Jal (WATER), Agni (FIRE), and Vaayu (WIND) which is also known as "PANCH MAHA BHOOTA". Vastu Shastra can be applied by keeping in harmony with these basic five elements of nature.

Vastu Shastra is an edifice science that was developed by our learned ancestors thousands of years ago. Its application today is purely architectural and its principles are based on becoming one with nature. It is all about importance of each of this element and how well we can harmonize the Five Basic Elements "Panch Maha Bhoota" with directions and/or seven chakras to relieve a stressful life, bringing peace, protection and prosperity in our lives.
