Vastu Elements: 5 Elements Of Vastu Shashtra
According to Vastu rules, this creation is made up of five elements – space, earth, water, air, and fire. Although all of these have an independent existence, when they are combined, their collective energy has a beneficial effect. The balanced presence of five elements is mandatory at any place of residence. Due to these, the house vibrates and there is a continuous flow of positive energies. The human body is also made up of the five elements, so with these elements, the creature is familiar with hearing, touching, seeing, smelling, and tasting. If the design of the building is made keeping in mind the balance of these five great elements, then the internal energies of the people living in it will remain normal by establishing harmony with them and they will remain healthy and prosperous.
Space Element (Akash)
The brahmasthan direction of the house is related to the space element. The ruler of the Space element is the planet Jupiter and the deity is Brahma. This element gives the person the power of hearing. There should be a light, soft, and sweet tone and a calm atmosphere in the house. Vibrant energies are obstructed by fighting, uproar, and noise. The northeast corner of the building and the Brahmasthan is governed by the sky element, so keep this area clean, open, and light so that the beneficial energies coming from this area can enter the building unhindered. This area is best for peace lessons, introspection, worship, and yoga. This direction should be kept healthy for intellectual development, mental peace, and spiritual prosperity. The open sky is also important, in this the effect of natural energies is available uninterruptedly and the benefits of sun rays and air are also received.
Earth Element (Bhumi)
The South-west direction of the house is related to the Earth element. Earth is such a base on which the other three elements water, fire, and air become active. Humans get the ability to smell from the earth. The plot should be selected keeping in mind the size and type of land for building construction. According to Vastu rules, if the building is square or rectangular then it is more beneficial and auspicious, unusual shaped plots and houses should be ignored. Heavy construction is auspicious at this place due to the dominance of the earth element in the southwest area of the house. Anyway, the characteristic quality of the earth is tolerance, so if the walls are relatively thick and heavy in this direction, it gives pleasant results. Keeping heavy things in this direction is also beneficial. Due to the weakness of the earth element in this direction, there is a feeling of insecurity in family relationships.
Water Element (Jal)
The northeast direction of the house is related to the water element. Moon is the lord of the water element and the representative of water present in the human body is taste. Hand pumps, underground water tanks, mirrors, or transparent glass represent water elements. The flow of rainwater and other clean water should be in the northeast. The east direction is considered good for the bathroom and the northwest direction is beneficial for the septic tank. Chakra is considered to be the symbol of water, so Vastu Shastra does not allow buying circular plots or constructing circular buildings. People living in such places always feel uneasiness and instability. Due to the weakening of the water element, there is a possibility of discord in the family.
Fire Element (Aag)
The South-east direction of the house is related to the Fire element. Sun and Mars are considered to be the masters of the element of fire, being the main planets of fire. In the human body, both the elements air and fire represent touch. The southeast corner of the building is dominated by the element of fire. That's why all the work related to fire in the building - kitchen, electricity meter, etc. should be installed at the southeast angle only. The symbol of fire is a triangle, so the building should not be constructed on a triangular plot, otherwise, there is a possibility of a loss of life and property due to fire accidents. The sense of financial security remains due to the balance of the fire element in the building.
Air Element (Vayu)
The North-West direction of the house is related to the Fire element. The air element predominates in the northwest direction of the building. The lord of this direction with air element is Varun Dev. The air element is considered to be the breath of the Vastu Purush. For good health and longevity, air intake should be placed in the north and west directions of the building. In Vastu, this direction is also considered the direction of communication, therefore, due to the weakness of this element in the building, social relations do not remain good, and respect also decreases.
According to Vastu and Vedic scriptures, the creation of the universe is done by Panchatatva i.e. five elements. Although these five elements remain in an independent state, when these five elements are mixed, their collective energy is effective and beneficial. According to Vastu Shastra, it is very important to have five elements in any house or residence. Correctly having five elements at the place of residence attracts positive energy at that place of residence. If you want to know more about it, then talk to Astrologers.
