Our ancient seers observed the influence of cosmic energies on living beings. Vastu harnesses the various energies present around us in a particular pattern so that they blend harmoniously with the persons living in the building.
Our most immediate Vastu is our body. The seven energy chakras in our body are linked with the Panchmahabhootas and any imbalance reflects on our physical, mental and emotional health.
Just as our home is an extention of the human body, the universe is an extension of our home.
Our homes link us to the universe or nature.
The whole universe is made up of 5 basic elements, the earth, water, fire and space. Our body is also made up of these five basic elements of nature.
The panchamahabhootas are related to our five senses of smell, taste, hearing, touch and sight.
Any imbalance in our external and internal Vastu translates into unhappy situations.
Vastu teaches the individual to live in balance and harmony with the panchamahabhootas.
