What Is Vastu Shastra?

Read Transcript

Vastu Shastra is a sister science of ayurvedic medicine, and it actually looks at how the home is impacting the lives of the inhabitants. So things like relationships and career as well as health are all incorporated in this science. And the basic principles are that the same five elements that impact the body in ayurvedic medicine, space, air, fire, water and earth also impact the home, so Vastu Shastra attempts to balance those elements in the home in an attempt to balance those elements in the body.

Sometimes when I talk about Vastu people are reminded of Feng shui and Feng shui actually came from Vastu except that Vastu is an older science and one of the key differences is that Vastu relies more on the directions for its recommendations.
