History of Vastu



Have you ever wondered when, how and where did the science of Vastushastra come into being? Who created it, on what principles are it based on and what is the objective of this field? This article aims to throw more light on how this concept came into being from ancient times to it’s more modern force.

As per Sanskrit, Vastu Shastra can be translated to ‘the science/teachings on the art of dwelling’. It is supposed to have come into existence as far as 6000 BC and the ruins of Harappa and Mohenjo-daro are known to have been built using VastuThe mention of Vastu can also be found in our Vedas, Upanishads and Puranas where they talk extensively about architecture and construction. Many ancient temples and palaces of kings were built on these principles.

Vastu was initially conceptualised to be a manual for city-building and town planning. Most of the rules of Vastu were based upon astrology, wind directions and the Sun and how to foster the energy of the elements in order to make life more healthy and prosperous. Since life for people was extremely simple, they relied heavily on the power of the elements to lead their daily routines. Hence, they built their homes to better harvest this energy for their benefit.

Over time, these doctrines of Vastu have been given a more structured shape and have often been associated with Hindu Mythology. The Vastu we see today is a well-researched subject taking our modern lifestyle into consideration which blends science with belief. In modern application, Vastu is used to bring prosperity and overcome hurdles by going back to the science used by our ancestors to harvest the power of the elements in order to overcome our problems.
