'The theory of Vastu roams around the principle of five

elements'. HOW? Let us define...

Vastu Shastra has evolved from ancient times to address the inherent

need of every human being to live a life of peace and prosperity free of illness

and poverty. The construction of a dwelling aided by the science of living in tune

with nature induces positive energies and subdues negative influences.

Everything in the Universe is considered to be made up of divine energy and

channelizing these energies in the right direction to attain maximum benefit is the

aim and intention of Vastu Shastra.

There is an invisible and constant relation between all the five elements. Thus,

the person can improve their conditions by properly designing their buildings by

understanding the effectiveness of these five natural forces. Vaastu Sastra

combines all the five elements of nature and balances them with the person and

the material. It takes advantage of the benefits bestowed by the five elements of

nature to create a congenial living and working environment thereby facilitating

spiritual well-being and paving the way for enhanced health, wealth, prosperity

and happiness.

Of the nine planets the planet Earth is said to have the presence of all five

elements facilitating the existence of human life. By moulding these five elements

aided with Vastu Shastra the energies of the cosmos can be balanced to suit

human needs and enhance positive energies.


It is an important element and is physically made up of land which contains the

site and materials required for construction. The element Earth is considered to

impart stability, balance, maturity, steadfastness and patience and dominates the

diagonal directions and the centre in every built up space. If the earth element is

in a state of balance it induces stability in life by creating a sense of harmony and

peace with respect to behaviour, career and relationships.


Air or Vayu is the next element and represents the North East direction. Air is

associated with movement mainly in the rotational mode and represents growth

and the courage to accept new challenges, take risks and bring joy and

happiness in life. Vastu is used to balance the air element and encourage

meeting with people or circumstances that facilitate growth. The doors and

windows have to be placed according to Vastu to facilitate good flow of air.


Water or Jal represents North East direction in Vastu and is physically present in

the form of oceans, rivers and lakes. Vastu helps in the proper positioning of

water bodies like aquariums, water tanks and swimming pools. Water is

associated with creation of new concepts and ideas and when water is balanced

it creates a philosophical and spiritual attitude by giving a broader outlook of life.


Fire or Agni represents South East direction in Vastu Shastra hence elements of

fire like kitchen or electrical gadgets have to be placed in South East according to

Vastu. Sun is the source and sustenance of life hence Vastu should provide

proper ventilation for sunlight. Fire brings power, strength, zeal and is equated

with earning capacity and money thus enhancing ‘fire in the belly’ meaning

driving force behind all actions. When balanced it brings fame and success.


Space (Akasha) - The Akasha provides shelter to all the above elements. It is

also considered the primary conductor of all energy sources within the universal

context – physical energies such as sound and light, social energies such as

psychological and emotional, and cognitive energies such as intellect and
