In Vastu shastra the directions are the very most important subject. Without knowing the directions we cannot find out the mistakes as per vaastu shastra in the premises. Directions are nothing but heart of a human body. Heart is most important to a human body, like wise directions also important to the vastu shastra. How to find out the directions, its very simple to know.
North direction – Green
East direction – White
South direction – Red
West direction – Blue.
Observe some numbers in the above map…45, 90, 135, 180 etc means “degrees”. Check the directions and its lords.
Vastu Couplet: Vaastu offers not only wealth on earth, but also bliss in the celestial world
The meeting of two directions is called as “Junction”, “Corners” or “Meeting Points”, generally people called it as ‘Corner’. A corner or a junction is more powerful than any direction (as per vastu and belongs to this subject only). The corner has mixed forces of two directions. Hence the corners should be properly planned during construction of your beloved properties for better results. Similarly every house has got the same eight directions, but their effect differ, depending upon their usages and managements. If every direction is perfectly used and maintained according to the rules of Vasthu , the house safeguards the resident, like a mother who secures her child. If we done opposite for direction rules then the residence will become hell ( Devils den ). You please to understand the hidden meaning of it., the effect of directions depends upon on how the person is utilizing them. For Example take one northeast (eshan) corner, if at one house northeast corner is in good position according to vaastu shastra he will enjoy prosperity, richness, successful life. If the northeast corner is closed, or it disturbed we cannot think about his position, he will loose every thing or he may be loosed ( disappears ), not knowing the truth behind the Vastu many people are inviting troubles and tensions, unnecessarily. There is certain impact of Vaastu on human existence and this is a totally fact and proved one. By knowing certain principles of vastu man lives and tastes the richness of happy. Vastu shastra is a mighty ocean.
The importance of orientation of a building is not only for saving energy but also to have a better house design, which not only gives comfortable living but also gives good health, prosperity and wealth to the house owners/occupiers and these families. There lies a co-relation between the rotational scenario of the planets and the house design and their different directions with respect of NORTH. The building of any type and its construction meets the purpose if proper orientation has been given using suitable local building material. It increases not only its life span but also improves the condition of occupants. There are instances where buildings are not planned according to required local orientation were lost or deteriorated much faster then the buildings having built with proper studies of orientation.
The proper orientation means the proper knowledge of all the eight directions. It is a common knowledge that the direction from where the Sun arises is known as east and where it sets as West and when one faces the East direction, towards one’s left is north and towards one’s right is south. The corner where two directions meet obviously is more significant since it combines the forces emanating from both the directions. SO in all there are eight directions, North, Northeast, East, Eastsouth, South, Southwest, West, Westnorth. Every direction has its own significance and has its own construction. The basic rules of vaastu Shastra are based on these eight directions.
