Does Vastu Purush dwell in Your House?
If your solution to the above issue is, “Who is Vastu Purush?”, then address to the mace of the ‘Vastu-uninitiated’! A home without the presence of Vastu Purush is inauspicious to prattle the least.
But, before hunt the interpretation as to why this quantity is esteemed for your home, let us see who the Vastu Purush actually is.
The news of this mythical being is mentioned in the Matsaya Purana.
The message goes entity like this:
‘Once Lord Shiva was engaged in a bloody battle with a rakshasa (demon) called Andhikasur.
However, the big powers of Lord Shiva were matched by the demon and, as the battle raged, Lord Shiva began to perspire profusely.
Beads of sweat formed on his forehead and began to fall.
Out of this perspiration was created a demon of such sizeable proportions that his device obstructed the Earth and the sky.
Seeing this, the devtas (Gods) became alarmed.
They devised a practice to overpower this demon.
A quantity of 45 Gods seized this creature and sat on his back, pushing him down towards the Earth.
The demon, under their goodly weight, crashed frontage down to the impetus with his leader towards the north-east and his feet towards the south-west.
The demon prayed to Lord Brahma, thus, “Oh Lord, you retain created this cosmos.
This phenomenon is moreover yours.
Why then are these Gods torturing me without any reason? Tell me what should I do to escape their wrath?” Brahma, appeased by the sincerity of his prayers, said, “From this moment you entrust be worshipped during every construction work, since you lie below the Gods.
Those who mention you prayers as Vastu devta entrust be spiritual with happiness and prosperity, but those who don’t, leave suffer penury and untimely death.
” From that day onwards, Vastu Purush was born.
The Gods, sitting on his back, became the governing deities of their respective directions.
Vastu Purush is the spirit that dwells in a frame or a building.
It, in fact, provides us with a blueprint for the layout of the house, called the Vastu Purush mandala.
This mandala is an gusto grid of 64 squares on which is superimposed the Vastu Purush.
From this are derived the rules of Vastu.
The Vastu Purush breathes from the north-east; the impetus why it should always be kept bright and clutter-free.
The south-west share contains the hefty rear of the Vastu Purush and is deemed prototype for locating massive objects.
The positive cosmic vigour enters from the north-east and flows towards the south-west.
Of the 45 Gods sitting on the back of the Vastu Purush, there are eight main Gods that represent the eight directions.
? North: Governed by Kuber, the Lord of Wealth, and Soma, the Lord of Health, this decree is associated with tranquility, sleepiness and sexual relationships.
? North-east: Eesh, the Lord of Energy and Knowledge governs this direction.
This rule is associated with self-awareness and knowledge.
? East: This decree is governed by Indra, the King of Gods.
This rule provides contentment, optimism and encouragement.
? South-east: Agnidev, the Lord of Fire, governs the south-east.
This directive influences health, affluence and opulence in all its forms.
? South: The south is governed by Yama, the Lord of Death.
This command is most lucky for wealth, success, happiness and peace.
? South-west: Niriti, the Lord of Demons and the Goddess of Destruction, governs this direction.
The enthusiasm of this decree bestows tranquility and purity.

The vigour of this decree is associated with success, glory, fame and fortune.

This behest bestows headship qualities, promoting obligation and the gift to plan, organise and lead.

Have supplementary windows in the north-east.
? Keep south-west higher; north-east lower.
Ensure that the moving of the drainage is from the south-west to the north-east.
? Centre of the house is brahmsthal, so nil should be constructed on it and it should never have clutter.
