Importance of Directions
Because of VAASTU SHASTRA, the whole universe enjoys good health, happiness and all round prosperity. Human beings attain divinity with this knowledge. Followers of VAASTU SHASTRA not only get worldly pleasure but also experience heavenly bliss. According to the Vedic Science, it is very much clear that VAASTU SHASTRA is universal. It is not confined to any particular group of people but helps in the development of all human beings irrespective of their caste, creed or religion. You will be able to understand different directions of Vaastushastra from the following charts:
The nine planets, nakshatras, zodiac signs, our deities, the Panchmahabhutas, the Sun, the Moon, and the Earth consistently govern the eight directions, namely East, North, South, West, Northeast, Southeast, Northwest, and Southwest. The following Vaastu chart, representing the eight directions that are ruled by different Gods and planets:
|Directions||God||Planets||Symbolizing||Section of Vaastu|
|East||Indra||Ravi (Sun)||Lord of Lords||Entrance (omen of good luck)|
|North||Kuber||Buddha (Mercury)||Lord of Wealth||Vault (money never finishes)|
|North-East||Dharma||Guru (Jupiter)||Morality||Puja rooms (for worship|
|South||Yama||Mangala (Mars)||Lord of Death||Ghastly masks (Mars) (to repel evils)|
|South-East||Agni||Shukra (Venus)||Lord of Fire||Kitchen (Venus) (joyous housewife)|
|West||Varun||Shani (Saturn)||Lord of Water||Bathroom|
|North-West||Vayu||Chandra (Moon)||Lord of Wind||Bedroom (nobility and tranquility)|
|South-West||Niruti||Rahu (Dragon’s head)||Lord of Demons||Assets (avoids being stolen)|
The entire universe rests in an endless space which has no directions. The sun, the stars and several other planets like the earth and the moon are revolving and rotating in this real space in their respective orbits, due to their own gravitational forces. Sun is a star closer to the earth and emits light and heat to the humanity whereby we are able to live and feel the presence and direction of the objects.
An intermediate direction is formed when two directions converge and make an angle. These intermediate directions are more important in the sense that they have in them the effects of both the directions, which make an angle in the formation of that intermediate direction.
As per the science of Vaastu, all the eight directions have their own respective influences on the human beings.
