It gives me great pleasure to present to my readers 'A Comprehensive Study-Vastu for Homes'.

Vastu is the ancient architectural tradition of India based on Vedas. It has developed its building technology on the fundamental premise that the earth or the soil is a living organism out of which other living creatures and organic forms emerge. Vastu can be defined as the life force contained within the earth. It combines yoga, ayurveda, astrology, music, art, mantras, architecture, ritual and colour with principles of design. Whether applied to a home, an office or a public building the principles of Vastu positively influence the health, wellbeing and wealth of the individuals occupying the space. This book aims to help you getting in touch with the cosmic rhythms and gives a holistic approach to understanding the art and science of Vastu. It helps you in finding your own balance and harmony in concordance with the rhythms of the universe and in alignment with your energy channels.

This book would be beneficial and useful for every reader for acquiring a deep understanding of the art and science of Vastu. I have endeavoured to put before the readers the fundamental principles of Vastu as given in the classical works on Vastu, their practical application and significance in modern times. Diagrams, illustrations and tables have been provided for an easier understanding of the subject and its practical usage. With the help of this book you can create spaces which are peaceful, efficient, comfortable and enjoyable to live and work in.

The completion of this book would not have been possible without the cooperation and assistance of many persons. I am indebted to my family, my dear husband Sharat and sons Devaansh and Ritvic, who have extended total cooperation with their love and support. I express my gratitude to my father, Dr.Narendra Mohan, himself a prolific writer, for his invaluable Suggestions.

I am grateful to UBS Publishers Distributors Pvt. Ltd, for the attractive designing of the book.



Vastu is broadly, defined as a 'place where people live' and the Shastra or the science of dealing with dwelling places is called 'Vastu Shastra'.

Vastu, the ancient science of architecture is holistic and its tenets connect us to the universe. Modern architects and engineers build houses and buildings -with the main purpose of providing shelter from the elements of wind, rain, fire and Sun, but the science and art of Vastu ensures through time tested principles not only protection from elemental forces of nature but also a peaceful and prosperous life.

vastu is as relevant today, if not more, as it was thou- sands of years ago. It ensures not only financial welfare but also peace, prosperity and good health. Vastu principles are directed at harmonising external space with the internal space within man.

Vastu is a holistic science which is in full conformity with the entire cosmos and flow of energy from all sources. The ancient sages of India made a deep study of different aspects of nature and discovered a clear link between the perfect order in man and his surroundings. They also found that orderliness of nature could, if adopted in human life, bring lasting and invaluable benefits. The temples of India are rich in architecture. They are the marvels of Vastu Shastra and give solace to millions of devotees who throng these temples. Similar is the case of ancient forts which have survived the vagaries of history and nature.
