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

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.
