Author: gdrealspace: Vaastu Shastra has clear-cut definitions——Vaastu means abode or a house & Shastra means science or technology, means it is the scientific method of house construction. Vaastu Shastra considers a house to be a living soul, having prana. Feng Shui scripts denote water, fire, wood, gold and earth as the basic five elements forming the entire universe with ‘wind’ as the special quality attainable by these elements. Vaastu Shastra scriptures stress that every living and non-living entity, for that matter entire world, is created out of the Panch-Maha-bhutas— water, fire, wind & ether. ‘Ether’ is considered the most important element in this system, as every possible transformation from one element to the other has to be routed through Akashtatva only. Vaastu Shastra has its own system of Vaastu-Chakras, which is used in conjunction with Astrology; Astronomy & Yogashastra for site-selection & a magnetic decides the directional aspect. Interestingly, both the system insist on North—South orientation for a structure. Feng Shui considers a land having reddish or yellowish soil as a geomantic land. Vaastu Shastra considers a land with white and yellow coloured soil for house construction. Red coloured soil is tolerated in Vaastu Shastra, but a site with black soil is prescribed for construction purposes, as such lands are prone to water-logging problems- a kind of environmental pollution. Feng Shui insists that a body of water should flow in front of the main entrance of the house. There is no preferred direction of water flow as Feng Shui allows positioning of the main entrance in any directions, depending on the birth year of the owner of the house. Vaastu Shastra on the other hand considers water flow in the direction N.E. to the Vaastu as a beneficial factor with lunar—shaped (Chandrakar) N.E. directional flow as a pointer to fame & prosperity.

A major discrepancy in both these disciplines pertains to the direction of ventilator openings. Feng Shui considers N. as evil & prefers S. direction for window openings. ln contrast Vaastu Shastra dictates the position of windows should be in the N.E.or N .E. directions only. Feng Shui attempts to offer the households protection against yellow dust and sand which the Chinese mainland receives from the deserts situated on the N. border of that country. Vaastu Shastra follows scientific logic in selection of the window directions, in the sense that it considers the beneficial effects of early morning sunlight.

Location & design of rooms in Feng Shui are based on the traditional Le-Shu grid of nine squares which assigns different directions. In Vaastu Shastra the location of rooms are designated in the Vaastu Purush Mandal, consisting of nine squares as influenced by the journey of the sun in its various phases.
