Vaastu is not merely a word but it is a science and a bridge between man and nature. It paves the way for enhanced health, wealth, prosperity and happiness in an enlightened environment. 'Vaas' means residence and 'tu' means God. So, vaastu is God's place of living. Vaastu is the science of direction that combines all the five elements of nature called paanchbhootas and balance them with the man and the material. The proper orientation means the proper knowledge of all the eight directions. Every direction has its own significance and has its own construction. The basic rules of Vaastu Shastra are based on these eight directions. The present study reviews the various studies carried out in the field of Vaastu i.e., its meaning, evidence of existence, significance and various uses. Vaastu Shastra is popular in this modem, scientific world which means it is an ancient science that continues to be relevant in the present times. The fundamental principle of vaastu shastra is to add value to a man's life. Behind every vaastu guideline, there is a scientific reasoning that aims at providing an organized and convenient life to everyone.

Abstract


Vaastu is not merely a word but it is a science and a bridge between man and nature. It paves the way for enhanced health, wealth, prosperity and happiness in an enlightened environment. 'Vaas' means residence and 'tu' means God. So, vaastu is God's place of living. Vaastu is the science of direction that combines all the five elements of nature called paanchbhootas and balance them with the man and the material. The proper orientation means the proper knowledge of all the eight directions. Every direction has its own significance and has its own construction. The basic rules of Vaastu Shastra are based on these eight directions. The present study reviews the various studies carried out in the field of Vaastu i.e., its meaning, evidence of existence, significance and various uses. Vaastu Shastra is popular in this modem, scientific world which means it is an ancient science that continues to be relevant in the present times. The fundamental principle of vaastu shastra is to add value to a man's life. Behind every vaastu guideline, there is a scientific reasoning that aims at providing an organized and convenient life to everyone.
