 Vastu And The Panchamahabhutas

This blog post will explain the importance of the Vastu And The Panchamahabhuta, Vastu directions

Vastu describes the arrangement of nature's 5 elements: Earth, Water, Air, Fire, and Space. They are also known as the Panchamahabhutas.

The human body is composed of these five components, and they are connected to the five senses: taste, smell hearing, sight, hearing, and touch.

The five elements mentioned above should not be the only elements in a structure, but they should also be harmonious with each other. Any discord between these five elements can lead to unhappiness and unfavorable consequences.

Vastu teaches us how to be in harmony with the five elements of nature.

  1. EarthGeography informs us of the fact that earth is the 3rd planet of the Sun and the heaviest world in solar systems.
  2. The gravity of the earth is a force that interacts with other space objects, including those of the Sun as well as the Moon which is the only natural satellite of Earth. In one orbit around the sun, the Earth revolves around its axis throughout 365 times. Therefore, an Earth one year spans 365.26 days long.

    The axis is tilted, causing seasons of change on the earth's surface. The northernmost point of the planet is known as"the North Pole, lying diametrically from that of the South Pole.

    The Earth has an iron core that is solid and an outer core of liquid that generates the earth's magnetic fields.

    The human body has an electric quality because of the billions of nerve impulses that are present in the body, which continuously create magnetic fields within the human body.

    The Law of Magnetism states that like charges repel and opposite charges draw attention. Vastu suggests that one rest with their head to the South since your head acts similar to that of the North Pole of the human body. This allows the different charges to draw and draw the maximum positively charged energy out of the cosmic realm to stay fit and healthy.

    Vastu is also involved with soil inspection and the selection of the site and the size and shape of the area.

    Earth can be described as the sole element that is connected to all five human senses and is the reason it has the greatest influence on human beings. It is believed that the South-West part of a building symbolizes that element of earth.

  3. water: It's the next most significant element. It's linked with the sensory senses such as taste sight, touch, and even hearing. It is quantitatively the most significant of the five elements, as 75% of Earth's surface is made up of water, and around 60% of our body is made up of water. It is the one element that is found in 3 states solid, liquid, and gas.
  4. The North-East part of a structure represents the element of water.

    Vastu provides complete information regarding the position of water resources such as the underground as well as overhead tanks for water, wells, borewells, and the best location for the drainage of water, sewage, etc.

  5. fire: This represents The Sun, the most vital source of light and energy.
  6. The spectrum of the Sun can be divided into seven colors


    The sun's early morning rays have beneficial Ultra-VIOLET radiations that are visible to the East and the Northeast. The day gets longer, and the sun's rays break into VBGYORand INFRA-RED in the South East. Late afternoon and evening sun's rays are infrared and are best prevented. This is the reason why the south and the South as well as the South-West should be protected and The North East should be left free and clear. It is also important to have water sources within the Northeast.

    Fire is associated with the senses of touch, sound, or sight. The South-East region of a structure is depicted by the fire.

  7. air: The Earth's atmosphere is the layer made of gas often referred to as air. It is absorbed by the gravity of the earth and helps protect life on earth by absorption of ultraviolet solar radiation and warming the surface via heat retention, and decreasing the temperature variations between night and day.
  8. Everything on earth and even fire are dependent on the element. It is connected to touch and sound. The North-West part of a building is represented through the air.

    Vastu suggests the proper placement of windows, doors, and balconies to balance the air component of a structure.

  9. SpaceThe notion of space has been thought to be fundamental in understanding our physical world. It is widely debated by philosophers and scientists. Simply put, it's an area that is open and accessible, or not occupied.
  10. Vastu provides space with the importance of being a natural element. It is connected to the concept of sound and is represented in the central point of a structure.

    The center must remain free and clear of clutter to ensure maximum positive energy.
