Life has become so hectic that worrying has become part and parcel of our daily existence. Business, marriage, education, loan, friendship, love…and just about anything you can think of, can prove to be a source of worry. In fact, sometimes we’re tense without any apparent reason.
The question is, how to manage and live a peaceful life? In this regard, renowned Vaastu consultant Mr Naresh Singal says, “Many people write in to us, seeking solutions to their problems. We cannot claim to solve all those problems through Vaastu Shastra or Feng Shui solutions. In my opinion, money matters amount to 50 per cent of our worries and these can be resolved through intelligent financial planning. About 30 per cent can be resolved through life management and in 20 per cent cases, modification at your living place can make a difference.”
Vaastu Shastra identifies ten directions out of which four are main directions i.e. North, South, East & West; four are sub-directions i.e. Northeast, Southeast, Southwest & Northwest; ninth direction is Space and tenth is Pataal. Of all the ten directions, the two sub-directions, North-East and South-West are the most vulnerable. In most cases related to mental tension or stress, we bear witness to some or the other defect in the plot or building, corresponding to these directions.
Significance of North-East & South-West Directions
The North-East sub-direction (also called Ishan) lies in the center of North and East directions. The South –West sub-directions (also called Nirutya) lies in the center of South and West directions. In order to understand the importance of these two directions as per Vaastu principles, learners can equate these directions with corresponding positions of the body parts of the Vaastu Purusha inside the Vaastu Purusha Mandala (Refer Fig. 1). The Vaastu Purusha’s head lies in the North-East direction and his feet lie in the South-West direction. As we can observe, the importance of these two zones in the Vaastu Purusha Mandala have somehow been compared with the importance of head and feet of the human body. As we know, the head is a vital part of our body because it encloses the brain, which controls all our actions. The feet impart a base to the entire body. If any house has defects in the North–East and/or South–West directions, all the inhabitants of that house are likely to face various problems in life. In order to avoid problems related to these two directions, believers in the ancient science of Vaastu must bear the following points in mind:
