Gods On Vasthu Mandalam

Dear Friend,

We have discussed Vasthumandalam in my last post. It is a square plot with four sides facing East, South, West and North. According to Vasthu Vidya, the Vasthu Mandalam has 45 gods inside it and 8 outside. When we divide each side into 9 equal parts and draw parallel lines joining the dividing points on the lines, we will get 9 rows and 9 columns, giving us 81 cells in all.

The names of gods, if we begin from the North East and proceed in a clockwise direction, are...

1. Easanan2. Parjanyan3. Jayanthan4. Indran5. Adithyan6. Sathyakan7. Bhrusan8. Anthareekshan9. Agni10. Pushav11. Vithadhan12. Grihakshathan

13. Yaman14. Gandharvan15. Bhrumgan16. Mrugan17. Pithrukkal18. Dwarapalan19. Sugreevan20. Pushpadanthan21. Varunan22. Asuran23. Soshan24. Rogan25. Vayu26. Nagan27. Mukhyan28. Balladan29. Soman30. Argalan31. Adithi 32. Dithi

Nine cells in the centre of Vasthumandalam is occupied by the god Brahmav". On the east side 6 cells are occupied by Aryakan; on the South 6 cells are occupied by Vivaswan; six cells on the West side are occupied by Mithrakan; and six cells on the North side are occupied by Bhoobhruth.

In the North East corner two cells are for Apavalsan and two for Apan. In the South East corner two cells each are for Savithran and Savithav. In the South West two cells are for Indrajith and two for Indran and in the North West two cells are for Sivajith and two for Sivan.

Outside of Vasthumandalam, there are some evil spirits, such as Charaki in the North East, Vidari in the South East, Poothanika in the South West, and Paparakshasi in the North West; and there are some gods like Sarvaskandan in the East, Aryamavu in the South, Jrumbhakan in the West and Peelipinchakan in the North.

Looking at this in another way, the Centre of Vasthumandalam is the symbol of Parabrahmam, around the Parabrahmam there are twelve devathas and they are the symbol of the Sun (representing the Sun of 12 months); and around these, there are thirty two devathas and they are the symbol of 32 stars.

The gods present in the Eastern side of the Vasthumandalam, are the gods of light; in the Southern side, are the gods of death; in the western side, the gods that rule over darkness and in the Northern side, the gods that rule over birth.

In my opinion, all gods, those within and outside of Vasthu mandalam are the different types of life forces. The shape of Vasthu mandalam is square and the plot with 3, 5, 6 sides are inauspicious as per Vasthu Vidya. The Brahmasthanam is very holy place in Vasthu mandalam. When sunlight passes through the prism, we get 7 colours and many more invisible light frequencies. In the same way, the square plot may generate life forces, which are favourable to our life.

The words Brahma, Para Brahma, Nirguna Para Brahma, Saguna Para Brahma are the vedic names of the universe. Everything is created or developed from Para Brahma and goes back to Para Brahma. In my opinion, the original nature of Para Brahma (Universe) is Nirguna Para Brahma. Now our universe is Saguna Para Brahma because it has all qualities and we can experience colour, taste, hardness etc. These qualities are controlled by the number of moving particles present in the molecules and their movements. When the movements of moving particles stopped, the universe became Nirguna Para Brahma. But this may be an imaginary and not material.

Yours lovingly,

Vasthupurushan,Charavasthu and Vasthu Mandalam

Dear Friend,

We have heard about Kalapurusha in jyothisham, Kavyapurusha in song, and Vasthupurusha in vasthuvidya. The word Purush is a confusing one because it is a synonym of male. But in Indian philosophy, Purusha means the person or Chaithanyam (Chaithanyam means life force) who exists or abode in Puri (Puri means place, body, a creation or time etc). In Vasthuvidya, Vasthupurushan means the life force existing on the earth or Vasthumandalam. Vasthuvidya considers Vasthupurushan as a demon, whose head is placed in the North-East direction and the feet in the South-West direction.

There are many stories about the origin of Vasthupurusha: One story says that it originated from a sweat drop of God Siva (in jyothisham the Sun is considered as Siva). Another story is that a demon got a blessing and became a megalomaniac and began making problems for all the gods. They were disgusted and went to war with him. During the war, the demon fell on to the earth and started tormenting all living organisms. When his head came to settle in a North-East position and the legs in a South-West position, all the gods come over his body and defeated him. This is the demon who became Vasthupurushan. The great book of Vasthuvidya Manushyalaya Chandrika Vasthupurushan lies on back and some other books lies prone. But the position of Gods in Vasthu Mandalam are mostly same to all books.

In my opinion, the above stories are connected to the modern science understanding of the origin of the earth.

1. All stories have some quarrel-type situations and this may be to symbolize the explosion of the Sun. In jyothisham the Sun is considered as Siva. The sweat-drop of Siva therefore means something coming from the Sun.

2. Vasthupurushan is a demon and he makes problems for living beings. This may be a symbol of the earth which is unfit for supporting life soon after the time of the explosion.

3. Gods came over the Vasthupurusha and defeated him and this may symbolize the earth becoming fit for living organisms due to the effect of different types of cosmic forces over a long period of time. The details of such forces are explained in different gods on the Vasthumandalam.


Madhaveeyam the great book of jyotisham says this about Charavasthu. We can see the detailed explanation in the 6th stanza of Chapter 9. The stanza means that the position of Vasthupurush is changeable, based on Rasipramanam. The foot of Vasthupurush is placed in the Sun-rising Rasi (month) and the head is in the 7th Rasi of the rising Rasi. When the month changes, the foot and the head of Vasthupurush also change.In my opinion, this Pramanam also is another supporting evidence to prove that the Vasthupurusha concept is totally connected to earth.On June 21st, the Sun arrives at the maximum point of the North East side and on December 22nd, at the maximum Southern position.

The inclination of the earth in its rotation and revolution around the Sun gives us the feeling of movement of the Sun from the North to South and the South to North. Actually this movement is connected to Vasthupurusha or Charavasthu or earth.

As per the stanza of Madhaveeyam, Vasthupurushan lies in the left side of Vasthu Mandalam, with the feet at sun-rising month and head at seventh month. When we fix a stump in Vasthumandala for a new construction, it is inauspicious if fixed on the foot, head, buttocks, chest, thigh of Vasthupurusha; and auspicious if fixed on the stomach.

Vasthu Mandalam

Vasthu Mandalam is a square plot with the four sides facing the east, south, west and north directions. Vasthuvidya says that the Vasthupurushan lies in the Vasthu Mandalam with the head in North-East side and the legs in South-West side. A square has the highest position in ancient Indian science. A square symbolizes the Prithwi Bhootha. The shape of Adhara Sila in Shadadharam of a temple and the outer lines of every Yanthram (which is connected to thanthrikavidya) and the Vasthu Mandalam are all shaped as squares.

Our next topic of discussion will be the names of gods in Vasthumandalam.

Yours lovingly,

This is a very important post regarding the mathematical calculation of Ayadishadvargam in Vasthuvidya. Here, ayam means income, shad means six, and vargam means groups, which includes yoni (which discusses directions), ayam (discusses income), vyayam (discusses expenditure), nakshathram (discusses stars), vayas (discusses age), thidhi (discussed earlier), varam (week) and pakshantharavyam (expenditure with a different types of calculation).

Vasthuvidya considers that these components influence the perimetre as auspicious, medium, or inauspicious. The great books of Vasthvidya: the Manushyalayachandrika, Thanthrasamuchaya, Silparatnam, Vasthuvidya and Mayamatham (Mayamatham discusses Pakshantharavyayam) generally use certain formulae to calculate the Ayadishadvargam. The perimetre of a structure is considered the base measurement in Vasthuvidya.

Here: Q = Quotient.B = Balance or Remainder; P = Perimetre; K = Kole; A = Angulam

1. Yoni = P x (3/8)Here B is Yoni.

2. Vyayam = P x (3/14)Here B is Vyayam.

3. Ayam = P x (8/12)Here B is Ayam.

4. Nakshathram = P x (8/27)Here B is Nakshathram.

5. Vayas = P x (8/27)Here Q is Vayas.

6. Thidhi = P x (8/30)Here B is Thidhi.

7. Varam = P x (8/7)Here B is Varam.

8. Pakshantharavyayam = P x (9/10)Here B is Vyayam.

For example,

Perimetre of a house = 4056 cmGiven that 1 Kole = 72 cm; and 1 Angulam = 3 cm, we get

Total Angulam = 4056cm / 3 = 1352 A1352 A = 1352 / 24 = 56 K 8 A.1. Yoni = 56K 8A x 3/8 = 169 / 8Here Q=21; B=1Therefore, yoni number is 1; so it is called Dhwajayoni.

2. Vyayam = 56K 8A x 3/14 = 169/14Here Q=12; B=1

3. Ayam = 56K 8A x 8/12 = (450H 16A) / 12Here Q=37; B=6K 16A

4. Nakshathram = 56K 8A x 8/27 = (450H 16A) / 27Here Q=16; B= 18K 16A18th Sta
