Buying properties with vastu principles in mind
Keeping vastu principles in mind before making an offer can save you a lot of problems later. Although, once the building is constructed there is little one can do to make it perfectly vastu compliant without making major and costly changes to the position of doors and rooms. So choosing your new home is essential if you believe in vastu shastra.
What is vastu shastra for?
Vastu shastra (translates as ‘science of architecture’) commonly known as Vastu, is a traditional Indian system of architecture similar to feng shui and it was originally developed to help people design perfect dwellings for living and working. Although, originally vastu was based on simple observation in relation to local climate and needs and it made sense in that context, over time people started to generalise its principles as if they were universal and tried applying them without contextual considerations. Many vastu suggestions were based on what was possible technologically in the old days and now are not so relevant since building practice has moved on and most of the problems have been resolved with modern technology such as plumbing, heating, etc. Read more about vastu shastra
