Human is the subject, object and the cause of construction and its architecture. He perceives and conceives the idea of construction to his experience with the surrounding world. Through art of design, one can alter and mould the elements of natural environment. The world comprises of five basic elements, also known as the “Paanchbhootas”. They are earth (Bhumi), Water (JAL), Air (Vaayu), Fire (Sun) and Space (Aakash). And they form the basis of a very ancient Indian science of architecture and buildings popularly known as VASTU SHASTRA.
Vastu is derived from the Sanskrit words ‘VA’ means VAS “to live” and ‘STU’ means SATHAN “place”, hence vastu means “place to live”. Its experts believe that it helps in making a congenial setting or a place to live in and work in a most scientific way. Taking advantage of the benefits bestowed by nature, its elements and energy fields for enhanced wealth, health, prosperity and happiness. In the words of Er. PANKAJ AGRAWAL, Chairman, Institute of Vedic and Vastu Research Foundation, Indore describes vastu as “Vastu science is related to environment and the placement of man in the environment, so that he can observe the maximum beneficial energy radiated from the environment”.
