Look At India from the Eyes of Vastu Shastra
The Indian culture has always projected the highest traditions and values cherished by all mankind, which is the right clue for Vastushastra analysis of India.The following points must be considered for this study.
1) Himalayas in the North-East (cold region,stable geomagnetic zone).
2) Natural shape of India (dynamically balanced conditions).
3) North-South axis longer than East-West axis.
4) Location of centre of gravity in the central zone of the landmass.
5) The Sahyadri mountains in the West(solid mass of great height).
6) Mineral deposits(gravitational mass).
7) India conforming to the Omkar shape.
8) Geological dissimilarities and multiplicity.
9) Hollow landmass in the South-West blocked by a solid Deccan trap.
10) Brahmasthal of India.
11) Slopes towards the Eastern sector.
12) Water-body in the South-East
13) Lunar-shaped water flow in the Eastern region.
Vastushastra considers the square and the rectangle as the best shapes,as from the view of providing side margins and adhering to Vastushastra norms it is convenient to construct a building on such a plot.But,Vastushastra principles need closer examination while applying to a region or a nation in the same way as any universally applicable forecasts need flexible interpretation of rules sacrosanct in personal horoscopes.
With a little bit of imagination,we can visualise India as having a rhombus form.The North-East ,the most critical zone,because of gravitational mass of the mountain ranges,could have been considered defecient from Vastushastra point of view,but for the deep snow covering.The North-east mountain ranges with heights 3,000 metres from the mean sea level have a snow-covering throughout the year.It is an established fact that ice floats on water because of its relative lower density compared to water.Thus,the presence of water and relatively lower gravity in the North-East region of India is definetely beneficial to the entire Indian nation as evidenced by cultural and religious and cultural developments through some devine grace.The cold environment also decelerates cosmic rays and radiation particles,reducing their destructive power.The cold region also ensures a geomagnetic zone with undisturbed and stable field lines in the North-East direction of India.All this results in improving Vastu-virtues of the North-East inspite of the presence of the giant Himalayas.
As seen in the map of India,the ill-effects of the hollow region in the South West due to the Arabian seas is effectively blocked by unfragmented solid rock structure of the Deccan trap.In the Deccan plateau,the South-West part is a highly dense gravitational mass with the land sloping towards the East,a feature considered beneficial in Vastushastra.
Considering the depths of continental shelves on the Western and South Western coasts of India,it can be referred that the South-West zone is relatively heavy with respect to the North-East zone because of greater water mass with respect to the North-East zone because of greater water mass with higher density compared to quantitatively less ice-water mass with lower density in the North-East.A relatively dense and heavy South-West border of India are unfounded.
The plateau adjacent to Madhya Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh has a height of approximately 100-300 metres from the mean sea level.This brahmasthal of India as per Vastushastra is solid and strong because this territory is in general, a flat tableland.Maximum amount of flowing river water runs through this region.The major rivers of India meander in this terrain in a North to East region lunar-shaped flow,a positive aspect as per Vastushastra.Eastward flowing water,descending to the Eastern terrain,and flat equidistant brahmasthal are all indicative of freedom for cultural interaction,thinking process,arts and talents along with superior religious values in values in life,and gallantry with self-control as documented in the history of India.
But due to the presence of deserts and slopes towards the North-West, this freedom has been abused,as evident in the history and the current social scenario in India.Than there is a shortfall in energy required to compensate these for ill-effects due to the presence of water in the South-East direction.As such,India will always be affected by political instability and inadept governance.History tells us that India,the source and fountain of spiritual and religious values for the entire world has always suffered reverses as far as unity and combined strength are concerned.The only redeeming feature is the high degree of tolerance and relatively low degree of violence in society, compared to some other nations because of relatively low degree of violence in society,compared to some other nations because of relatively heavy gravitational mass in the South West and the divine character of the North-East.
