Our ancient Vastu Shastra has been founded in such a way, that the
inmates can derive maximum benefits from sun-rays and the energies of
the sun like heat light, UV rays the only reliable source of
Vitamin D (Vitamin D is absorbed by the blood directly when the bare
skin is exposed to sun), which is vital for sustenance of life on the
Uttaraayana and dakshinaayana too are of great scientific importance
since daytime will be more than the nighttime in the Uttaraayana
facilitating availability of more sun light.
It is only some years ago that the modern scientists have discovered
that the white solar light could be split into segments called visible
rays and invisible heat spectrum. But thousands of years ago, our
ancient Indian sages, not equipped with any kind of appliances were able
to discern many natural phenomena in a scientific manner and according
to the visible spectrum had distinctive names with specific functions
besides colors like: Jayanta, Parjanya, Mahendra . to Bhrsha and
Aakaasha , which correspond to VIBGYOR.
Other than that, sunrays consist of 7 colors (VIBGYOR) and their
effect on human body is immense as it cures several diseases.
- The modern astra physics, during the last few decades, has divided
the atmosphere into several zones like Stratosphere, Ozonosphere etc.
but several centuries before this discovery, the atmosphere over which
Varuna held its way was divided by our sages into Bhu, Bhuv, Swar, Jan,
Tap and Satyalok.
The Eastern direction assumes a great significance because the
sunrays of early morning emit more light and less heat, hence the best.
In the afternoon, sun moving towards West, grow hot emitting Infrared
rays, which are detrimental to health.
Thus, due to all these reasons, it is explicitly laid down in Vastu
Shastra that more open space, more windows and doors fixed, more
balconies and verandahas should be provided towards the East and the
North side than in the South and the West side.
The most important aspect considered while formulating the Vastu
Shastra is the magnetic field of the Earth, which has significant
influence on the human life. Human body itself acts as a magnet with the
head, the heaviest as North Pole. If the head is directed towards the
North while sleeping, the North Pole of the Earth and that of the human
body repel each other affecting the blood circulation, causing disturbed
sleep, tension and other problems. Thus, it is said by Vastu Shastris
that ONE SHOULD NOT SLEEP FACING HIS HEAD TOWARDS NORTH.
Now-a-days many hitech instruments are available by which one can
detect Vastu defect of a house by measuring the energy level of the
person residing in. By using Feed Back Energy tester, one can not only
detect the Vastu defect by measuring the energy of the human, but the
same person can restore the energy with the help of Yong Yang Deep
Stimulator. Another device to measure the human energy field is Lecher
In the most recent survey of the Gujarat earth quake effected
regions , the maximum houses destroyed were not according to Vastu and
those were intact were constructed on the principles of vastu.
