Vedic Vastu is a natural law based architecture. Many ancient structures including religious worship places are based on orientation principle of Vastu. Pyramids are the true example of orientation. Five important elements of vastu shastra – Fire अग्नि, Water जल, Earth – पृथ्वी – भूमि, Air / Wind – वायु and Space are mutually related to the four cardinal Directions and four inter-cardinal directions of the compass. Each Vastu direction is associated with an element and a different area of your life. If you build a structure with proper orientation as per Vastu then it eliminates lots of problem faces by person in to his/her day to day life. Vedic Vastu guides us on quality and impacts of four cardinal and four inter-cardinal directions on human being.
