Introduction of Vastu Shastra:
       

Vastu is knowledge of architecture, iconography and art relating to structures and buildings. It is an ancient practice to construct buildings in harmony with natural forces for well being of humanity as a whole. The word ‘Vastu’ has been derived from ‘Vastoshpati’ used in ‘RigVeda’ and is meant to provide protection, happiness and prosperity in this life as well as after death. Vastu is a result-oriented science and gives definite and immediate results if applied properly. It tells about proportion and details of building elongation, slopes, water tanks, kitchen, bed rooms, stairs, heights of roofs, entrances, doors, windows, walls, etc. Living in harmony with the nature is the theme of Vastu.

Vastu means the dwelling of humans and Gods. Many Vastu rules are derived from 'Vastu Purusha' who is depicted as a man lying with his head pointing northeast. The different directions and sectors are assigned to different Gods and Guardians.
