The Five Elements of Vastushastra: Water – Part 3

fire-11

 

Our multi-part blog series continues. This time we have a look at the third element of Vastu, Fire.

 

The sun is our source of energy. Along with the other elements, it is equally responsible for life on our planet. It provides heat, light and essential vitamins to boost our growth and nurture our health. The source of all these things from the sun is through fire. Fire (Agni) represents any form of energy. Be it electric, volcanic, solar, heat etc.
Fire is a very crucial but highly unstable and dangerous element. Harnessing it’s power correctly can give us good benefits but misusing this power can be disastrous. Hence, all sources of fire and energy must be respected and utilised in a respectful manner in order to not cause an imbalance.
In Vastushastra, the south-east corner is often considered the corner for fire. All electrical gadgets, and sources of kitchen fire must be kept in the south-east corner.

 

Tips for fire and South-East:

  • Fireplaces, stoves and other large electrical appliances must be kept in the south-east direction.
  • The North-East corner of the house must not be blocked, useful and healthy rays from the sun comes from this corner.
  • Late afternoon and evening sun rays carry harmful infrared rays. Tall trees placed in the south corner can avoid these rays

Why do we walk around the deity in a temple?

harmandir-sahib-golden-temple-amritsar-india-17-1000x1000

 

We have often seen others and our selves, walk around the temple after our prayer. This practice is not just done in temples but also other religious gatherings and festivals. So why do we have to take a certain number of rounds around a temple or holy fire?

This practice is based upon a scientific reasoning and not some blind faith. When a temple is established and life is infused into the deity through proper Pran-Ppratishtha ceremony, divinity enters the deity. This is in the form of magnetic waves starting from the central point of the base of the deity.

This also has health benefits. The circle makes you physically fit, Vatta-Pitta-Kappa balances happen by inhaling the air. These positive vibrations are blessings that add to one’s strength and protects one from calamities and problems. The sound and the vibrations of the bell and the heat of the burnt camphor adds to the positivity of the place.

Hindus go around the deity in the temples in a clockwise direction. We always assume God is the centre of our existence and because we also assume that Lord is always on our right side. This reminds that we must always lead a righteous life, in the right path called Dharma. The Divine Halo moves clockwise. He also exists everywhere. So when we do Pradakshina or circumambulation, we accept that our actions and thoughts are always centred around God. The centre point is always fixed and remains the same at whatever distance we do the Pradakshina. So we are reminded of the eternal truth that God is the centre of gravity and the main focus of our existence. This is the main principle of Pradakshina.

What is the importance of lighting a lamp before any religious Ceremony ?

Diwali-Oil-Lamp-small

Light and brightness has always been equated with positivity, motivation harbringer of good and associated with spiritual beings. Darkness, on the other hand, has always been associated with evil and the devil.

Light is a form and a symbol of Tej (Absolute fire principle). The lamp is invoked as, ‘तमसो मा ज्‍योतिर्गमय ।’ meaning the lamp leads us from darkness towards light. It burns only to give message of peace and light to the man. The presence of “Agni” fire ensures success. Fire is one of the five elements that form the human body and is a transformed form of Soorya. This is its greatness.

It is a tradition to light a lamp first before starting any auspicious events or rituals. Light symbolizes the absence of darkness, grief and unhappiness. Almighty’s Divine Grace is spread all over the house by lighting the lamps. God’s first and foremost appearance is in the form of Light which we call as ‘Divya Jyotir’ or ‘Divine Light’.

In almost every Indian home a lamp is lit daily before the altar of the Lord. In some houses it is lit at dawn, in some, twice at dawn and dusk – and in a few it is maintained continuously (Akhanda Deepa). All auspicious functions commence with the lighting of the lamp, which is often maintained right through the occasion.

Flame symbolizes wisdom and knowledge. The Lord is the ‘Knowledge Principle’ (Chaitanya) who is the source, and the illuminator of all knowledge. A lamp teaches you to be upright, rise upwards and dispel darkness. Hence light is worshiped as the Lord himself.

Knowledge removes ignorance just as light removes darkness. Also knowledge is a lasting inner wealth by which all outer achievement can be accomplished. Hence we light the lamp to bow down to knowledge as the greatest of all forms of wealth.

But the traditional oil lamp has a further spiritual significance. The oil or ghee in the lamp symbolizes our vaasanas or negative tendencies and the wick, the ego. When lit by spiritual knowledge, the vaasanas get slowly exhausted and the ego too finally perishes. Ghee lamp has more capacity to attract the Sattvik vibrations present in the surrounding atmosphere as compared to oil lamp.

The flame of a lamp always burns upwards. Similarly we should acquire such knowledge as to take us towards higher ideals. A single lamp can light hundreds more just as a man of knowledge can give it to many more. The brilliance of the light does not diminish despite its repeated use to light many more lamps. So true knowledge does not lessen when shared with or imparted to others.

Guru Nanak Dev Ji taught that there is one God and he is the truth and ultimate reality. In Gods eyes, the labels of Hindu, Muslim, Jew, Christian, etc. don’t mean anything. Gurujii also taught that God has created the universe and he is everywhere. His teachings were simple; there is only one Supreme God.

The Five Elements of Vastushastra: Water – Part 2

water

 

In our first blog in this multi-part series, we introduced you to Earth, the first element of Vastushastra. In this blog, we will talk about the second element, Water.

Water is present on Earth in various forms. In oceans and rivers, snow on mountains, trapped within the soil or as vapour in the clouds. Water is essential for life, the very first life forms on Earth were believed to have lived in water. Without water, life cannot survive.

Because water is so important, it is important in Vastu to use it effectively. Vastushastra suggests ways in which water can be stored hygienically without being wasted. The North-East direction is the direction for water.

Tips for water and North-East:

  • Water tanks and swimming pools must be in the North-East direction
  • No large equipment or construction must take place in this direction

 

Since water is a free-flowing element, the North-East direction must be kept free of any hurdles or obstructions. Imbalance of the water element can lead to bad health and illness. It is important to ensure that clean water and sewage water are kept in different locations in order to ensure good health and hygiene.

The Five Elements of Vastushastra: Earth – Part 1

Earth magnetic field

 

As we have seen earlier in this blog, the science behind Vastushastra heavily relies on the natural elements around us. Those elements are:

  • Earth
  • Water
  • Fire
  • Air
  • Space

These five elements are called as Panchbhootas. In earlier times, life for people was very simple and these five elements were the only known sources of energy, essential for the survival of life. Hence, Vastushastra derives much of it’s knowledge by studying these five elements and how it affects our daily lives.

In this multi-part blog series, we are going to explore each of these five elements and see how it affects us and what we must do to properly harvest it’s energy for our benefit.

 

The first element we will see is Earth or Prithvi. We stay on this planet and hence this world has a lot to give to us. Right from the minerals inside the soil, to the plants that grow from it, the animals that eat these plants and survive and consequently these animals giving us our food and various other resources for our survival, it can all be traced back to the ground under our feet.

In Vastu, it is considered extremely important to study the soil of the ground before making a purchase of the land. Since that soil is going to be the most basic foundation of the future construction, it is very important to not just study the soil but also the size, shape, location, direction etc. as they would all eventually start paying an important role when the construction is completed.

The Earth is also a source for another very important form of energy that it holds, the magnetic pull and gravity. It is believed that our body too contains iron and it’s forms and hence is affected by the Earth’s magnetic properties. It is hence widely suggested to sleep with our heads facing the south direction in order to help align our bodies with it’s magnetic pull.

Another reason why Earth is an important element is because it is the only element that can be experience by all our five sensory organs; touch, smell, sight, sound and taste. Since it has a wider appeal to our body, it plays a far more significant role on us and hence becomes more essential to correctly understand and harvest.

 

In our next blog we shall talk about the next element on the list, water.

Why do we worship Kalash

index.php

A kalash is a brass, copper or earthen pot filled with water. Mango leaves are placed at the rim of the pot and a coconut is kept in the centre. A red or white thread is tied around its neck or sometimes all round it with a diamond-shaped pattern and may be decorated with designs. Such a pot is called a kalasha.

When the pot is filled with rice or water it is called a purnakumbha which symbolises the lifeless body which when filled with divine life gains the power to perform various actions and makes life complete. On all important occasions like the traditional house warming, weddings, and worships, the kalasha is placed with prescribed rituals. It is placed at the entrance as a sign of welcome. It is also used while welcoming holy people.

It is believed that before the creation, Lord Vishnu was reclining on his serpent, the Ananta, in the ocean of milk. From his navel, rose a lotus on which was seated Lord Brahma, the creator who then created the universe.

The water in the kalasha symbolises these primeval waters from which the entire creation originated. It gives life to all and has the ability to create innumerable names and forms, the motionless objects and the animate beings. All the auspiciousness in the world emanates from this energy behind the universe. The leaves and coconut symbolise creation and the thread denotes the love that binds all the creation together. The kalasha is therefore perceived as sacred and auspicious.

The “Kumbha abhisheka” of a temple is done in a grand manner with elaborate rituals including the pouring of one or more kalashas of holy water on the top of the temple. When the asuras and devas churned the milky ocean, the Lord appeared bearing the pot of nectar, which blessed one with everlasting life.

The Significance of Directions in Vastu Shastra – Part 1

1441012444joga-sigulda-vastu-compass

You must have often heard of the significance of directions and the key role it plays in Vastu. Have you even wondered why are directions so important and why does Vastu Shastra rely so heavily on directions? In this multi-part series, we are going to educate you, the reader, on why directions are so important and the role each direction plays.

Vastu Shastra has traditionally listed 10 directions. However, with the modern compass, we can see only 8 directions. These directions are illustrated in the drawing below as follows:

  • North (Uttar)
  • North-East (Ishanya)
  • East (Purav)
  • South-East (Agneya)
  • South (Dakshin)
  • South-West (Nairuttya)
  • West (Pashchim)
  • North-West (Vayu)

The 9th and 10th directions are defined as the Earth and the Sky

 

Blog 3.1

Each of these directions plays a significant role in our lives. The role is defined by a mixture of astronomical alignments, the position of the Sun, Earth’s magnetic field and other scientific reasoning. On the basis of the role that each direction plays and overlaying these directions on a house/property/office, we can determine which role of the house or office should be done in which direction and hence ensuring that the task is done with correct astrological alignments in order to achieve success. The below illustration shows the different rooms/areas that should ideally be allocated to each part of the house or office.

 

Blog 3.1.1

 

In our subsequent articles, we will talk about each direction in detail, the pros and cons of each of them, why do they exhibit a certain characteristic and what is the best activity to be done in that direction in order to achieve success.

The Significance of Directions in Vastu Shastra – Part 2

golden compass isolated on white background

In continuation to our multi-part series where we talk about the significance of each direction, we shall now see the significance of each direction and the role it plays. This would help us better understand Vastu Shastra and why certain changes are recommended.

 

North (Uttar Disha)

The North direction is one of the most prosperous directions in Vastu Shastra. This direction is owed and administered by Lord Kuber, the treasurer of the gods. Pleasing him and hence ensuring that this direction is well served would lead to financial prosperity.

Items to be installed in this direction –

Mirrors are auspicious here since it is supposed to help double your wealth.

Cash boxes, safes, tijoris are also supposed to be installed in this direction.

Slope, well or underground water tank should also be installed in this direction within a property.

Other recommendations –

North is also a source for positive energy. One must always try to face north as much as possible. This is especially true whilst taking business decisions or during family discussions.

Rooms recommended in the north –

For residences, the living room should ideally be present in the north part of the house.

 

North West (Vayu Disha)

The North West corner is ruled by Lord Vayu, the god winds. This direction is also associated with Lord Hanuman, the god of strength. This corner is often associated with new opportunities as the wind brings in a lot of external elements that can possible change our lives and bring it on the right path. However, misuse or wrong use of this corner can also take one off the right path and onto the wrong path in life and lead them into a state of confusion.

Recommendations:

Tall structures must not be present in this corner of the plot

The direction also fosters friendship and co-operation. Hence board rooms and discussion areas should be in this direction in an office environment.

Rooms recommended in the North West –

Board rooms and discussion rooms in offices

Unmarried girls should also try to sleep in the room in this direction since the energy of the wind helps alter their life and finds them a life-partner

In our next blog we shall discuss West and South West zones.
