VAASTU SHASTRA USING SHALIGRAMS

INTRODUCTION:
Vaastu Shastra though a very old science has now taken a new look in the modern world. Now people have realised that Vaastu Shastra can not be overlooked or ignored anymore. The Vastu Shastra has a very great importance in the normal life of all human beings and those people who have followed the Vastu Pricipals in their houses or land or buildings have immensely been benefitted. Now in the ongoing stressful environment where the man is extremely busy and have to face several challanges on a day to day basis, the Vastu Shastra has come in our lives as boon. The Vastu is being carried out on buildings, houses, shops, land, plots, working places like factory or site and the inmates of these places benefit spiritually, materialistically and have tremendous peace of mind with good relations among the family members, success in all endeavors, children doing good in studies/career and all round happiness."Vaastu" in Sanskrit literally means nature, a surrounding or environment. The word "Vastu" came from Vasthu, denoting anything existing such as house, shelter,building etc. and "Shastra" in Sanskrit means systems. The Vastu shastra is an ancient art and science, containing principles and practises of constructing buildings, homes and work stations which ensures a harmonious balance of positive energies between the man and nature and thereby the synergy of these two ( man and nature) brings all round happiness, protection, health, wealth and prosperity. Who does not want all these things in life??? The God is one and belongs to all religions, races and castes and creeds. Now-a-days,when people want to construct a house or other building, they devote more time for minute details of foundation,superstructure, comforts,look,appearance etc.without going into detailed examination as to whether such a house or building will bring them prosperity, health,wealth,wisdom and happiness in the life paving the way for progress and peaceful living or not. Vaastu Shastra is such a vast field which really needs specialisation if someone want to study it .There are some basic favourable and unfavourable directions which we use in our daily life. Ancient sages of India laid down several principles for constructing buildings taking advantage of the nature, the Pancha Bhootas namely Earth, Space, Air, Fire and water, gravitational and magnetic effects and rotational influences of Sun, Moon, Earth and other planets on the life in Earth with a view to bring balance and harmony between man, nature and his buildings and thereby ensuring peace, prosperity and happiness. These principles are called Vastu Shastra, were evolved over thousands of years out of experience and foresight of ancient Sages of India and are very valuable for the well being of man-kind. Vastu Shastra is a science of positively balancing all eight directions of a particular place. According to Shastras, if we worship, revere and respect the Lords of these eight directions,they will shower on us their blessings and benefits.
The main dieties and their directions as per the principals of Vastu Shastra is as follows:
1. Esshan ie Ishwar(North-east) - Eshan is ruled by Sadasiva or God Himself. Hence this direction is paramount, which demands keeping itscrupulously clean, open and highly receptiveand welcoming. He grants us wisdom, knowledge and serve all comforts and relieves us from sufferings.
