I spent a lot of time in my grandmother’s home and when I look back I realize that while my childhood was very happy, my grandmother and many of the people from our family suffered many hardships while living in that house on a personal level. Academically though everyone excelled.
My grandparents” home was a large impressive mansion with acres of land and fruit trees everywhere. And yet everyone who chose to live in that house died young. My grandfather died at 58, my grandmother was 62. An uncle also died at 62 in a freak accident-stumbling on a short stair barely a foot beneath him, hit his head on the large wooden door and went into a coma immediately. Marriages were troubled and a young cousin brother I was very close to, also died in his mid-thirties.
The siblings who left that home prospered. Growing up I really did well in some houses and not in others and that was a pattern. Another home only had male children born there and my son too was born in that house.
At times I would visit palatial homes and feel very uncomfortable and would later hear of family discord. At other times I would be in a small house with simple architecture, minimalistic furniture but very close to nature and feel really good. Today I realize that the latter were Vaastu compliant homes. Having studied ancient astrological and Vaastu literature, I’ve realized that the entire way of building every structure was both scientific and mystic. And the calculations and technology so precise that if applied correctly the results were the same and could be verified again and again. If there was an error it was in the interpretation of the instructions as a lot of it was in secret codes. And instructions differed according to the prevalent caste system in India.
According to Vaastu, when a structure is created it sparkles with different energies. Learning to harness those energies for creating abundance is the art and science of Vaastu Shastra. Very few people realize that the space they inhabit affects their moods. And if the space is energetically and structurally not Vaastu compliant it affects every area of our lives adversely.
