Benefits of Feng Shui
 


Five physical elements viz. water, fire, earth, gold and wood form the basis of Feng Shui. If the relative proportion of these elements is correct, the occupant of the house leads a happy life or he will have to suffer from scores of problems.

According to the beliefs of Feng Shui, these five elements depend upon the time of one's birth. If, for example, a person is born at 3 p.m. in the afternoon, he or she will have water as the most favorable element. Such a person should begin the construction of his/her home from the west or south-west. The following table gives a brief profile of these elements.

WORSHIP OF VAASTU

VAASTU PUJAM PRAKURVIT GRIHARAMBHE
PRAVESHANE CHA|

Before you start the construction of your home, first of all, the land should be worshipped and then the digging for foundation should be carried out. When the house is ready you should formally worship Ganapati (Lord Ganesh), Punyah Vachan, Matrika, Vaishvadev, VAASTU Kundal Navgrah. You should spend tenth part of the cost of the house in VAASTU Pujan (worship of VAASTU). It is clearly mentioned in Vishwakarma Prakash:

ASHRIYAM MRITYUMAPNOTI VIGHN TASYA PADE PADE|
VAASTU PUJAM AKURVANAM TAVAHARO BHAVISYATI||

That is, those who do not worship VAASTU because of the fears of over spending, infidelity or lethargy, lose their wealth and luxury, meet obstacle at every step and fall prey to untimely death. Such people have to bear the anger of VAASTU Purush as a result. Hence, every prudent person should worship VAASTU Purush without fail.

There are provisions of installing different kinds of VAASTU Peethas (platforms) for worshipping VAASTU Purush.

Only the carpet area of the plot is considered to install the platform for VAASTU worship. Thus, VAASTU with one to one thousand steps is worshipped. For common households, worships of VAASTU with eighty-one steps are most prevalent. For the temples, royal palaces, villages etc. VAASTU with sixty-four steps is worshipped.

One day before the actual worship, purify your body by observing penance (in the form of fast and other restraints). Next day, before the actual worship starts, take bath and practice Pranaayam. The Brahmins in the mean time should recite the scriptures to sanctify the ambience. Thereafter bow your head before Lord Ganesh and other deities and make resolution with following hymn:

OM AGYA, AMUK MASE (Month's name), AMUK PAKSHE (Name of the lunar phase), AMUK TITHIYE (date) AMUK VASARE (day), AMUK NAMADHEYO (your name) YAGYAMANOHAM SAPATNI SAPUTRA, SAPARIVAROAHAM MAM.

Recitation of the above hymn should be followed by Digrakshan (protection of the direction), Kalash Pujan (worship or Urn), Deep Pujan (worship of lamp), Ganpati Pujan (Worship of Lord Ganesh), Punyah Vachan (recitation of holy hymns), Shodash Matrika Pujan (Worship of sixteen deities), Vaishvadev Sankalp (resolution to make offerings), Ayushya Mantrajap (recitation of hymn for long lide), Nandi Shradh, Brahmin Varan etc.

SHALA KARMA

At the centre of the plot, measure as much land as you can with the diagonal expansion of your hand from the tip of the thumb and tip of the little finger. Make an altar on this piece of land and light the fire in it. Then pouring pure ghee on fire, recite the following hymn:

OM ACHYUTAY BHAUMAYA SWAHA
IDAM ACHYUTAYA BHAUMAYA NAMAM|

While reciting this hymn, sprinkle ghee on each of the pillar and recite

OM STAMBHAYA NAMAH|

At the centre of the plot then build an altar that is one cubit in size and install the platform of VAASTU deity with eighty-one steps on the south-western corner of the altar. With five Bhusanskaras (Consecrations devoted to land) light fire in the altar.

INSTALLATION OF VAASTU DEITY

After making VAASTU Platform with eight-one steps take some water in hand and make resolution:

ADYETYADI PRARABDHASYA KARMANAH SANGATA SIDDHAYARTHAM VAASTU MANDALE DEVATNAM STHAPANAM PUJANAM ACHANAM KARISHYE |

Then install four small pillars on the four corners of the VAASTU Peeth one in each corner.

VISHANTU BHUTALE NAGALOKAPALASHCH SARVATAH |
ASMIN GRIHEAVATI SHTHANTAM AYURBALAKARAH SADA ||

With this hymn, twist the sacred thread into double and tie it around the pillars. Then starting from the fire angle (south-east corner) make oblation of urad dal and cooked rice near each pillar with the following hymns in sequence:

AGNIBHYOAPYATH SAROEBHYO YE CHANYE TAN SAMASHRITAH BAHIM TEBHYAH PRAYACHCHHAMI PUNYMODANAMUTTAMAM|
AGNAYE IMAM BALIM SAMARPAYAM||1

RUDREBHYASHCHAIV SARPEBHYO YE
CHANYE TAN SAMASHRITA|
BALIM TEBHYAH | ISHAANAM IMAM
BALIM SAMARPAYAMI|| ..4

Then, with the help of a gold or silver pin, draw ten lines along east-west axis and invoke their deities with the following hymn

SHANTAYAI NAMAH| YASHOVATYANI NAMAH| KANTAYAI NAMAH| VISHALAYAI NAMAH| PRANAVAHINYAI NAMAH| SATYAI NAMAH| SUMATYAI NAMAH| NANDAYAI NAMAH| SUBHADRAYAI NAMAH| SURATHAYAI NAMAH|

Similarly draw ten lines along north-south axis and invoke their respective deities:

HIRANYAYAI NAHAM| SUVRATAYAI NAMAH| LAKSHMYAI NAMAH| VIBHUTYAI NAMAH| VIMALAYAI NAMAH| PRIYAYAI NAMAH| JAYAYAI NAMAH| JWALAYAI NAMAH| VISHOKAYAI NAMAH| IDAYAI NAMAH| and REKHA DEVATABHYO NAMAH

Thus you have invoked all the deities representing the lines.

Now its time to invoke all the deities present in VAASTU Mandala (VAASTU's sphere) with the following hymns:

1) Shikhine Namah Shikhin Avahaymistha payami. 2) Parjanyay Namah, 3) Jayantay Namah, 4) Kulishayudhay Namah, 5) Suryay Namah, 6) Satyay Namah, 7) Bhushay Namah, 8) Akashay Namah, 9) Vayavye Namah, 10) Pushne Namah, 11) Vitakshay Namah, 12) Grihakshatay Namah, 13) Yamay Namah, 14) Gandharvay Namah, 15) Pitribhyo Namah, 18) Dayvapikay Namah, 19) Sugreevay Namah, 20) Pushpdantay Namah, 21) Varnay Namah, 22) Asuray Namah, 23) Shoshay Namah, 24) Papay Namah, 25) Rogauy Namah, 26) Ahaye Namah, 27) Mukhyay Namah, 28) Bhallat Namah, 29) Somay Namah, 30) Sarpay Namah, 31) Aditye Namah 32) Ditye Namah, 33) Apaya Namah, 34) Savitreuy Namah, 35) Apaya Namah, 36) Rudray Namah, 37) Aryane Namah, 38) Savitre Namah, 39) Vivasvate Namah, 40) Vivudhay Namah, 41) Mitray Namah, 42) Rajyakshmane Namah, 43) Prithvidharay Namah, 44) Apatvyasay Namah, 45) Brahmane Namah, 46) Charamyai Namah, 47) Vidarye Namah, 48) Putanye Namah, 49) Pasrakshyai Namah, 50) Skanday Namah, 51) Aryamne Namah, 52)Jrimbhkay Namah, 53) Pilipichchhay Namah, 54) Indray Namah, 55) Agnaye Namah, 56) Yamaye Namah, 57) Nairitye Namah, 58) Varunay Namah, 59) Vayave Namah, 60) Kuberay Namah, 61) Ishaanay Namah, 62) Bralimane Namah, 63) Anantay Namah, 64) Agrasenay Namah, 65) Damaray Namah, 66) Mahakalay Namah, 67) Pilipichchhay Namah, 68) Hetukay Namah, 69) Tripurantkay Namah, 70) Agnivaitalay Namah, 71) Asivaitalevy Namah, 72) Kalay Namah, 73) Karakay Namah, 74) Ekapaday Namah, 75) Bheemrupay Namah, 76) Khechray Namah, 77) Talavasine Namah.

After invoking all these deities worships all of them with all your might reciting the hymn: VAASTUMANDAL DEVABHYO NAMAH

Then worship the personified idol of VAASTU. Construction of the house can be started now. When the construction is over and the house ready to live in, rituals have to performed again before actually shifting into your new home. After worshipping the main gate, enter the house and keep the urn you are carrying in the north-eastern corner of the kitchen. Then carry out a Havan in your house to please all the nine planets. Starting from east, tie the sacred thread around your house and sprinkle water mixed with milk everywhere in the house. Then dig a pit in the south-eastern corner of your plot and put the urn and the idol of VAASTU in it and fill the pit again with water and soil. Arrange a feast for Brahmins and before they leave, sufficient donations and gifts should be given to them.

APPENDIX

Since birth, food, clothing and shelter are the basic necessities of a human being. In remote past, humans started the journey of their life very much like wild animals. But with increasing understanding of the environment, humans continue to walk on the path of progress. With continuous efforts our learned sages revealed many secrets of nature. But the curiosity of man was never quenched. It is curiosity that led to so many fascinating discoveries and inventions. Necessity has of course, been a prime motivation behind man's progress.

In the entire universe, only the solar system has significance for our existence. Life, as it is known to us is found only on the earth, the mother of all of us. Our earth goes round the Sun, sole source of energy for life on earth.

Great Indian sages conceptualized all the four Vedas and the role these could play in the well-being of human race. With time, Vedas came to become an integral part of our life style. Then our sages created VAASTU Shastra to make the immediate ambience of man favourably to him.

Literally, VAASTU means house or building. Our house should be such that we may pass our life in it with comfort and peace.

In this regard Atharvaveda says:

HAVIRDHAMAGNI SHALAMPATNINAM SADANAM SADAH | SADO DEVANAMASI DEVI SHALE ||

That is a house must be as pious as the place of Yagya. There should be a proper place in a house for the women folk, where their chastity could remain unspoiled. It should also have a proper place for the men folk where they could stay, meet and treat the guests. Similarly, there should be separate rooms for bath, dining, meditating etc. also.

Yajurved said: KIN VA VAPAN MAHAT Which place is bigger? Where should house be built?

This is answered in the next hymn: BHUMIRAVAPANAMMAHAT
Land is the place to put solid, tangible things and it is also the large field to sow every kind of seeds and to construct every kind of building.

The basic principle of VAASTU is to adopt the macro and micro effects of nature and train them in favour of human being. Thus, every kind of construction must be done in such a way, as it may prove helpful in physical, mental and spiritual development of humans. A human body is a conglomerate of endless energies. VAASTU helps to channelise these energies.

A human body is also composed of five physical elements. A slight disturbance in the proportion of these elements may adversely affect the human being. VAASTU Shastra gives a detailed thought to this balance of five elements and suggests ways to carry out construction in such a way as not to disturb the proportion of these elements. Following table gives an account of these five elements and their effects:

ELEMENT EARTH WATER FIRE AIR ETHER
Faculty Smell Juice Appearance Touch Sound
Sense-Organs Nose Tongue Eyes Skin Ears

VAASTU AS A MEANS TO ACHIEVE SALVATION

Father of VAASTU Shastra, Vishwakarma says:

CHATURVAG PHAL PRAPTIH SALOKASHCH BHAVED DHRUVAM| SHILP SHASTRA PARIGYANA NYARTYEAPI SURTAM VRAJET||

From the complete knowledge of VAASTU (architecture), human being achieves Dharma, Arth, Kama, and Moksha. Their lives are a success on earth and after death they find a place amidst the deities and are worshipped by the people.

An architect, trained in western type of architecture, can guide you to build a house. But he can't guarantee you for a peaceful stay in the house. But VAASTU Shastra does give such a guarantee. All around the world, house building is regarded as a mundane job. But in India, it is a religious activity; a means to achieve salvation. Unless and until we don't understand the religious logic behind house building, we can't understand the principles of VAASTU as well. A house minus VAASTU is no more than a heap of rubble. Let us now see how a good house helps us to achieve salvation.

DHARMA: Inhabitants of a house must get spiritual peace. It is even necessary to salve a man from the tortures of physical and spiritual pains. There should be no feeling of envy or dispute among the family members. In ancient times, even the most violent animals used to give up their nature in the ambience of hermitage. This is a dynamic example of VAASTU's religious benefits.

ARTHA: Occupants of a house should be strong economically. A new house must bestow its occupants with wealth and not with a curse of penury. If such things happen i.e. a man loses his wealth in a new house, it should be inferred then, that VAASTU of the house is faulty. On the other hand, if a home proves fortunate for a man, it shows the success of VAASTU.

KAMA: Following the religious path and finding ways to earn money, a man can make efforts to fulfill his desires like marrying and having a happy family.

MOKSHA: This is the ultimate salvation that every one longs for. If the family is happy, children grow into successful citizens, duties of a man are said to be completed. Now he has no worry and no cause for tension at the time of his heavenly departure.

VAASTU is an indispensable means to achieve all of these four faculties.
