Ayurveda and Vaastu, science, energy fields, energy, life – The Indian Art of Placement

According to the ancient Vedic texts and scriptures, there are many ways of creating a harmonious and happy life. Considered as being two of the most essential ways of doing this and bringing your health and happiness to its highest level are through the practice of Ayurveda and Vaastu, science, energy fields, energy, life

Within the Sanskrit language, Vaastu is a word that translates and means “ The Science of Structures”. This traditional architectural theory governs and guides all of the elements of the construction and design of any building in accordance and harmony with the universes natural laws.

As proposed and proved the theoretical physicist Albert Einstein, every sentient or non-sentient thing in existence is ultimately made up of a field of energy.

Vastu is the subtle and pure energy underlying everything, with Vaastu being the manifestation and expression of that energy as matter.

Every structure in existence has its own subtle energy form, whether its a statue or a piece of furniture, a fence or a building or even a piece of artwork or a garden space.

The ancient science of Vaastu involves working with these energy forms, providing a guide and framework in order to arrange any of these structures in order for their underlying energy fields to be manipulated beneficially to compliment one another according to direction and proportion.

Vaastu and Placement

From the desired placement of door locations and windows to furniture arrangements, artworks, symbols and colour schemes, Vaastu provides for all of these.

It also assesses the location of plants and water features, the optimum types of soil, and the construction of fences or compound walls.

Vaastu as a science should be thought of as a direct dialogue between our minds and that of Nature.

Better allowing us to comprehend the various energy fields of the objects that surround us and the effects on our bodies and minds by the invisible cosmic bodies that directly and indirectly influence us.

In the science, in Vaatsa, dwellings and homes are considered to be full of life force, it allows us to make informed decisions on how to ensure that the spaces we inhabit vibrate with a sense of rhythm and beauty, in perfect accordance with the laws of nature.

A structure built according to the guidelines of the science of Vedic mathematics, which is one of the most advanced forms of knowledge in our universe. Thus the Vedic measuring system of Vaastu is profoundly different from that of Feng Shui.

Within Vaastu, every habitat that is going to be occupied must be individualized, with several significant factors considered, these can include the personalities and vocations of the inhabitants, spatial orientation and direction and the different activities to be performed within.

Nowadays, many individuals are fortunate enough to enjoy abundant physical comforts as well as a long life, yet many feel a sense of unhappiness and inadequacy.

They experience unease in the mind and body and don’t have a balanced state of health. Often they find no relief from modern science, which has a serious lack of understanding of these afflictions and the complex interaction between the body and the mind.

Thus it seems wise to look back to the Vedas, the ancient Indian texts to discover some potential answers. Ved literally translate into ”knowledge or science”.

The Vedas are storehouses of knowledge concerning the intricate balance of the different forces that affect all human existence and life. Revealed in the Himalayas to humanity over seven thousand years ago.

Despite their antiquity, they contain timeless knowledge regarding the expression of consciousness that can assist us in finding answers to questions in our modern day society concerning life and health.

Within the spheres of Vedic wisdom, Vaastu is practised in conjunction with two other Vedic sciences, Ayurveda and Jyotish (astrology). Jyotish, the science of the planets and stars and their influencing forces teaches us about the fact that there are principles that can govern and affect our mental and physical aspects.

Ayurveda, called the science of life, teaches us about the psychological, physical and psychological composition of these forces. When taken into consideration, we can see that our own physical body is a perfected Vaastu structure, manifested as a vibrating and living entity.

The subject of Vaastu has been extensively covered in a practical handbook written by the founder and CEO of The Indus Valley Ayurvedic Centre, Dr Talavane Krishna M.D.
