VAASTU SHASTRA
Vaastu Shastra, the ancient mystical science has originated from India and is based on our age-old culture, traditions, geographical conditions, climatic conditions. Vaastu Shastra, a part of Vedas is believed to have originated four to five thousand years ago. Excerpted from the Stapatya Veda, a part of the Atharva Veda; the principles of Vaastu Shastra set during those days were based purely on the effect of sunrays on a structure during different times of the day. Considered a purely technical subject, Vaastu Shastra was restricted only to the architects and their kin who were authorized to make observations and corrections made were after comprehensive screening of the situation. While ancient artifact term 'Vaastu' or dwelling to be the residing places or co-existence of God and Man, its depiction in modern times has been widened as it includes all buildings and structures irrespective of their use like residences, industries, business establishments, hotels etc. Ancient scriptures on Vaastu Shastra define Vaastu on the basis of two forces - positive and negative which are on constant interaction with each other on the surface of the land.

The Vaastu principles are based on the five basic and essential elements, such as Vayu (air), Agni (fire), Jal (water), Bhumi (earth) and Aakasha (space), which are known as Panchabhutas. Everything on earth is built from these elements.

Vaastu as the actual physical manifestation of the dwelling is categorized into four
