There are a lot of people hearing about Vaastu and the miracles that can occur if they would just by a yantra to hang on the wall. Several of my students were duped into believing that an $800 three-dimensional yantra (with a bad mother wall by the way) would Vaastu their house. This is really highway robbery. It is better to have a real consultation and pay $250 for it, get a few good suggestions, and hear the truth than to pay several thousand dollars for yantras and crystals.
The next question that begs a reply is this: Is it better to build a partial Vaastu house than no Vaastu at all? First, once one knows Vaastu Shastra I would imagine it would be difficult to build anything but Vaastu compliant structures. With that said, if you use Ayadi for this partial Vaastu house then you “activate” the energy of the house. From that point on, the rest better be done properly. Otherwise, if you don’t build a fully compliant house, then every Vaastu building code that you break is a breaking of natural law. You can’t fool Mother Nature. Each of the Vaastu building codes that you fail to comply with will distort the energy of the house and you will feel that in your life.
We are building with the highest ecologically sound principles available – natural law – the laws of nature. Beyond that, we are building with the laws of Consciousness – the laws of manifestation that even transcend the laws of nature. You can have an eco house that is compliant with everything from green building principles to building biology principles and still build a sick house if you don’t use Vaastu Shastric building codes. All of these building codes that have to do with green building, natural building, etc. are only dealing with the material aspect of building.
Yes, Mayan was an eco builder. He said where we should build (environmentally clean sites) and the materials we use are important (how trees should be cut, which stones are good for what, etc.). But more than that, is the subtle energy or quantum energy that we activate when we enclose space. Vaastu is primarily about enclosed Space. That is the energy that will have the greatest and deepest effect on human well-being We have to change our way of thinking. We have to stop trying to fit Vaastu into our building style and try to put our building style into proper Vaastu. Vaastu comes first – the rest follows.
Even an emphasis on the “building codes of Vaastu” is almost inaccurate because the building codes are secondary to the concept of Vastureva vaastu (pure energy or consciousness becoming matter – the material world). The building codes (rules for building per Vaastu Shastras) are simply to ensure that Vastureva Vaastu happens the way we want it to and that the qualities of energy/consciousness that are housed by the built space are undistorted. The real point we must understand is that our priority is to enclose space that vibrates with life supporting qualities of consciousness itself.
