With the above shloka it is clear that Vaastu Shastra is universal and is not confined to be followed by any particular set of religion, caste or creed. However let us understand the why, what and how of Vaastu Shastra.
Why Vaastu Shastra
With various researches proving the principles and ideologies formed during our Vedic Era to be true, people have started believing and showing their interest in the age old science of Vaastu Shastra. Each and every principle of Vaastu Shastra, as described by our saints, has a science based fact behind it and every fundamental of Vaastu is made to make us physically and mentally healthy. Vaastu Shastra is all about bringing in harmony between five basic elements of nature in a specific area; it could be an office, a factory, a villa or a flat. When five elements are in balance, energies of that particular area become highly positive, leading to the best of physical and mental health of the inmates.
What is Vaastu Shastra?
Vaastu ensures a wholesome life of health, happiness and prosperity. As per the Vedas, 60 percent of human problems disappear if a house is made as per Vaastu tenants. Vaastu Shastra is an art and science of building a dwelling, which ensures that every place in a house is given a particulate direction as per Vaastu principles. We all know that everything around us is made of energy, be it living thing like our body, animals, or non living things like crystals, artefacts, colour, to name a few. Vaastu Shastra principles are also based up on universal energies, which include rotation of earth around sun, electromagnetic radiations of earth and five elements of Nature, i.e. water, fire, earth, air and space. Vaastu is all about striking a balance between all of them and once we have balance of energies in the dwelling we reside in, good health, positivity and prosperity follows inevitably.
How to apply Vaastu Shastra?
Building a Vaastu compliant house is not difficult and can be easily constructed under supervision of a Vaastu expert but challenge is making an already built-up house, Vaastu compliant. With the growth of Scientific Vaastu, it is now feasible and possible to make an already built in house completely Vaastu acquiescent. Vaastu today is not just restricted to building a house as per laws of Vaastu, but it includes balancing five elements of nature within a house as well as with in human body through Ayurveda, Meditation, Mantra Chanting, Naturotherapy, Colour Therapy, mirrors, plants, furniture, crystals, paintings and usage of many simpler yet effective household materials.

Even if people pretend to be too modern to look back at their Vedic wisdom or the reason for their existence, somewhere they are still connected to their roots. It is just a matter of time and availability of correct information that they start to appreciate the wisdom our sages bestowed upon us.
