Why Vastu is Good for your Next House?

Why do religious people hang a cross and a horseshoe next to each other for good luck? Are they reading the Gospel for Sunday and the horoscope for the whole week? Why do they resort to both prayer and prophecy in difficult times?

Television stations advertise various fortune tellers, you can hear horoscopes on the radio, and mobile network operators offer paid astrological services. Movies, fairy tales and books are full of sorceresses and mysterious spells. How is it possible that believers look for answers in horoscopes and fairies? When making a decision, Astro in Ludhiana play solitaire or Tarot cards, and when making a new acquaintance they ask about the sign of the zodiac? Where does so much belief in superstitions and divination come from in the modern world?


Vastu is the Indian counterpart to the better known Feng Shui. As with this, there are a multitude of rules that ensure that man lives in harmony with the universe and its energies. How important the connection to cosmic contexts is, you may only see when we become aware of what we are doing when building a house: We cut out a piece of cosmic space (brahmanda) that surrounds us everywhere for our own use. As part of Brahmanda, the same rules apply to this tiny enclosed space as to the entire space, and it is better if we live in harmony with it, because we cannot withdraw from these forces as far as the passive viewpoint. 

But we can also see the whole thing actively: building living space means creating a universe on a small scale. Architecture is the establishment of an active relationship with space and nature, with the universe and ultimately with the divine. Architecture takes place at the contact zone between human creativity and universal laws and becomes an interface, the design of which decides on harmony or disharmony, on happiness and wellbeing. Vastu in Ludhiana teaches how people at this interface can live in harmony with the ruling forces and still be able to creatively shape their surroundings.

Energy flows mainly come from the northeast corner. The property and house are planned in such a way that the beneficial north-east and east sun are used to the maximum and the less favorable south and south-west sun has a minimal influence. This results in many rules:

An ideal building site is a slope that drops to the northeast and rises to the less favorable directions west and south.

The building should be higher to the west and south and form a kind of protective wall, while the north and east sides should be lower in order to open the property in this direction. The highest corner is the one in the southwest, followed by the southeast, lower is the northwest corner, and the lowest is the northeast corner of an ideal house.

For the same reason, the openings of a house should be oriented towards the north and east as much as possible and less towards the south and west.

In the north and east, as far as possible, no obstacles should hinder the flow of energy flows.

In the south, tall, shielding and shady trees should be planted.

Border walls should be thicker and higher in the south and west than in the north and east.
