    Vaastu Architecture – Ancient science for thriving modern spaces (part 3)

    Vaastu temple cottage project in Aztec Canyon, Arizona USA in which the author was actively involved

    Vaastu is a complex, and at times, a seemingly esoteric science, but ultimately it always leads to stable objects in material form. These universal principles have been implemented in buildings on all continents and in all cultures, which have been radiating Vaastu energy for centuries after their creation.

    Architecture is the zenithal achievement of Mathematics.” Brahmarishi Mayan

    The Vastu scriptures focus almost exclusively on the construction of new buildings. The design of an object is created first in the creative center of the Creator, “the Architect.” The architect gives all structures a form. It is the same in Vastu. The Vastu consultant or Vastu architect begins well before the excavation of the building site with the design-creation of an energetic building. The Vastu consultant/architect defines the precise measures and prepares to bring the structure into perfect form.

    Tasks of a Vaastu Consultant

    Simply the good intention to create a perfect structure is not enough. Intention alone pales in concrete applicability when a massive structure takes shape and goes into its inherent vibration. Therefore it is important that the Vaastu consultant supervises a project from choosing the plot through the planning phase up to its final execution.

    For the sake of creating perfect execution of Vaastu from beginning to end, the Vaastu Consultant is ideally present in all major planning sessions and then as the structure rises, he measures, measures and again measures until he is as happy as a musician who tuned his instrument perfectly.

    The more exact the measures are applied the more potent and harmonic the structure will be

    Wherever necessary, the consultant will step in and adjust whatever needs to be corrected to create the optimal Vaastu effect. Marcus Vitruvius Pollio, a Roman master- builder and founder of the European architecture explains the essence of the purpose and skill of the Vaastu Consultant:

    “Those who have aimed at acquiring manual skill without scholarship have never been able to reach a position of authority corresponding to their pains, while those who have relied only upon theories and scholarship were obviously hunting the shadow, not the substance.

    But those who have a thorough knowledge of both like men aimed at all points have the sooner attained their object and carried authority with them.”

    Ideal moments in time

    Cycles of time define the rhythm of our lives. Many practitioners of yoga or meditation know about the supportive influence of the early hours in the morning. The world is asleep. The daily distractions have not yet begun. The phone is silent and only the birds start chirping. Compared to the hectic daytime hours, this early morning time best suits the journey inward.

    Also the four seasons bring about different qualities. In spring nature is waking up whereas in fall nature prepares for the winter sleep.

    As the different times of day, as well as the different seasons, radiate different qualities, similarly, according to tradition, there are moments in time where the “quantum space” is most ripe for new beginnings. Of these there are eight short timeframes within one year.

    A traditionally trained Vaastu consultant executes ceremonies such as ground breaking (Bhumi-Puja), laying of the foundation stone (Vaastu-Puja), placement of the door, and housewarming celebration (Grihapravesh). All these

    ceremonies serve to bless the project in every phase of construction.

    A word on existing structures

    Have you had the experience of being in a built space in which you feel completely comfortable and your well- being is supported? Yet, in other buildings, people are always sick and suffer one setback after another. With Vastu we are not leaving the energetic effect of our business and residential environment to chance.

    Despite the fact that Vastu texts aimed at perfect architecture and construction of newly established

    buildings, they still give us several tools with which we can analyze the Vastu compliance of an existing structure.

    Here are some examples of Vaastu rectification techniques based on the basic principles of Vaastu (part 2 of this article):

    If the slope of an existing object runs in the wrong direction, we can at least straighten the slope out right around the house. Or a pond in a wrong direction can be repositioned under certain circumstances. Adverse effects of ill-placed bodies of water can also be mitigated by a wall or a fence.

    The measure of the mother wall (outer wall) should, according to Vaastu formulas, show favorable results and the center of the building should be free. In existing structures we apply only in very rare cases structural rectifications. In all other cases we restrict ourselves to opening the centre space and supporting the harmony of the space on the sound level by playing Vaastu music. In many houses there are several entrances, eg a main entrance and a side entrance or garage entrance. If any of these are in a module of the 9×9 grid that yields negative energies, in some cases the door can be relocated to a positive module.

    The placement of bedrooms and the bed within the room is critical for good rest and harmony among residents. We can see if there might be a more appropriate bedroom location or bed placement within the room.

    Vaastu rectification, while it cannot create a Vaastu dwelling, can identify and often remedy the major defects which will increase harmony for and among the inhabitants. It is important to clarify that it is impossible to turn a conventional house into a Vaastu house. However, Vaastu rectification can bring residents of conventional homes more Vaastu energy into their life. We do this by implementing Vaastu music, Vaastu mini temples and/or Vaastu temple cottages.

    Temple cottages and temple sleep

    The most powerful method of bringing residents of conventional homes Vaastu energy into their life is to build a small but perfect Vaastu Temple Cottage in the garden or on the plot.

    A Vaastu Temple Cottage serves as a place for retreat, meditation, yoga practice, reading, singing, sleeping, socializing, healing and much more.

    In the Ayurveda teaching, the temple cottage plays a crucial role: chronic diseases are reduced by “temple sleep” the extent that they are treatable with herbs and massages. The patient is sent to sleep for a certain number of nights at a nearby temple, where they benefit from the healing effects of the temple.

    The precise measures, that which give the structure vibrant resonance, of a Vaastu Temple Cottage are calculated according to Ayadi formulas – the secret of Vaastu. Every single measure of the horizontal and the vertical planes of these small but extremely potent temples is precisely planned and implemented structurally. According to these formulas not only the ancient temples in India have been calculated, but also many temples, pyramids, palaces and houses in the rest of the world.

    The Ayadi formulas are exactly matched to the date and time of birth of the owners/inhabitants, so that they have the highest specific resonance for the indwellers. Furthermore, Ayadi measures are chosen that show auspicious results for such qualities as high income, happiness, long life, and spiritual development. (There are 16 aspects of Ayadi in total.) A temple cottage supports all areas of our lives such as well-being, happiness, prosperity, health, success, relationships, and spiritual bliss, through its perfect measures and proportions.

    And for those who do not have a place to erect a Vaastu Temple Cottage, can at least get a Vaastu Mini Temple. In order to reap the benefits of Vaastu, one can place the small temple where one spends a lot of time – next to the bed or workplace. By means of its perfect measure and proportions it will have a positive influence on all areas of ones life.

    According to Vedic tradition, the Vaastu Mini Temples are made at one of the most powerful times of the year.


    The science of Vaastu is described in detail in many traditional texts. Dr. Ganapati Sthapati has hundreds of these scriptures in his library. In addition to the deep science, the technical application also demands experience and detailed knowledge. But once such a Vaastu structure is precisely established, the object radiates with power and aliveness.

    One example is a guest house located in the Kolli Hills, India. The clients, already aware of Vaastu principles, chose this wonderful east-sloping plot in the Kolli Hills, South India.
