Does God need Vastu is really questionable !



THE APPLICATION OF MODERN VAASTU HAS NO BOUNDARIES NOR RELIGION IS INVOLVED IN THIS PRACTICE HENCE, THE YANTRAS' AS APPLIED BY THE VASTU CONSULTANTS IS REALLY QUESTIONABLE.

AS PER MY KNOWLEDGE NO YANTRAS' CAN WARD OFF "THE ILL EFFECTS OF VASTU" AND IF A YANTRA IS TO BE MADE TO BE APPLIED AS MENTIONED IN THE RELIGIOUS BOOKS, THEN IT HAS TO BE MADE ON A SPECIFIC DAY AND TIME THAT TOO ON A LEAF/BARK OF A PARTICULAR TREE.


THE FACT OF YANTRAS' CAN BE OBSERVED IN THE CASE OF INSTALLATION OF SRI. CHAKRA BY SANKARACHARYA OF KANCHI AT TWO PLACES. ONE AT TIRUPATI AND ANOTHER AT SRIKAALAHASTI TO ATTRACT DEVOTEES. 


THE FORMER COULD DO BETTER BECAUSE OF VASTU, WHILE THE LATER COULD NOT ATTRACT DEVOTEES.



So, does Vastu really make any sence ?

There are many powerful Yantras related to yogic practices, experiential meditation and for specific healing practices. But regarding Vaastu, yantras and meditation are largely ineffective. 


"Even the Gods and saints who come into the physical body are subject to the powerful influences of the five elements of Vaastu."

The magnetic power of the earth element directly affect the soul. The pervasive influence of the earth, water and fire elements cannot be completely ameliorated by burying or displaying power objects and yantras. 

The blessings of a powerful siddhic master certainly help, as do homas, pujas and protective power objects.

In south India even today we find the live proofs of temples constructed as per principles of Vaastu Shastra. These are strictly in conformity with the principles laid down in Indian culture and Vaastu Shastra.


Buildings which have been constructed after proper auspiciousness of the land and Vastu application are famous and popular throughout the world. 


Takshshila University, Mohenjodaro, Taj Mahal, Several palaces and temples in India have a prominent place in the art of Vaastu not only in India, but in the whole world. 


In South the Tirupati Balaji temple, Rameshwaram temple, Meenakshi temple in Madurai, Vivekanand memorial in Kanyakumari, Jagannath temple in Puri, Badrikasram in the north, Kamakshya Devi temple in Assam, Vishwanath temple in Varanasi are some such places where people feel mental and spiritual peace as desired.


The famous Konarak Temple with all it's might could not show it's strength due to non-complience of Vastu.


Whether it be a temple of a well, pond etc. or a house, it is the proper selection of land and direction etc. and construction according to the principles laid down in Vaastu Shastra, that its fame spreads far and wide even after thousands of years have passed. 




If you want to sail with the wind to your back one must abide by Vaastu principles or forever be subject to negative influences.

In short neither Vastu-puja nor the Yantras' as applied may be of any help.

This is for general discussion only.
