When applied in the correct context, the basic principles of Vastu are wonderful. Please remember that the Vastu Shastras were developed centuries ago when we didn’t have fans, lights, garbage disposal units, air-conditioning, apartment blocks, telephones… the list is endless. Also, the principles work best on independent structures. You will notice in most diagrams, the four sides of a house are unattached to others. In today’s congested world, this is a luxury most of us urban folk can not afford. Today, Vastu is often bandied about as a cure for all your problems. I am against the commercial exploitation of this science by obfuscation.
