How I Found Happiness By Following Vastu

Tuesday, September 22, 2009

My latest seating arrangement has proved very productive and mood elevating. The noteworthy results are—I started this blog and had many sessions of enlightening chat (of course I paid) with some of the great Vastu experts and astrologers, whom I admire and follow. Even my local friends have started making courtesy calls to me. I have not been so blissful in a long time.

Earlier, even though I could feel everyone hated me, I could not nail down the reason for it. On my repeated prodding, my sensible husband had, at first, tried to dismiss my concern, saying that no one hated me; they were simply busy with their day-to-day life. Then one day he said, not without due consequences, “You put off everyone with your Vastu suggestions.” I was left aghast. What was wrong if I wanted to improve the lives of my ignorant friends? The five elements and the nine planets do fill up a well-designed house with positive cosmic energy, ensuring health, wealth, and happiness for its occupants. Read what Vishwakarma had written in the Vastu Shastra:

Vastu Shastra
This science is complete in itself,
Happiness to the whole world it can bring.
All the four benefits it would bestow on you,
Health, wealth, fulfillment of desires, and bliss.

We have had our house built and modified according to the Vastu Shastra, strongly believing the fact that the earth is flat and square with four corners. The kitchen is towards Southeast, the direction of God of fire. We keep our trishuls, swords, and firearms in the Southwest, cash and jewelry in the North. We worship facing the East. We never make out or sleep in the puja room. The master bedroom is in the South. We never eat sitting on our bed; this has been a major reason people suffer from illnesses around the world. We do not use bright colors in our house, neither do we put paintings or photographs depicting war, sad faces, birds like owl, crow, pigeon, or erotica. Do you know why some people have tough time gaining respect in the society? Their houses have doors, which are too old, have cracks, or painted black!

Even after following all these rules, something was amiss, I felt ignored, until after inspired by a news report about a Minister of State who had demanded a new toilet on the back side of her seat in keeping with Vastu, I moved my chair to the toilet.

Sitting in the toilet for a few days has brought cheerfulness in my life. Now, I have given a contract to fix a toilet seat behind every sofa, recliner, and chair, in the living rooms as well as in the dining areas. When the project is over, I plan to have a puja and a grand house-warming party. After that, you would be allowed to experience the benefits of the cosmic energy in our house. Thanks for being my friend!

  6. I don't understand much. But If you are saying, All the "india is a poor country and this is a vulgar display of wealth" stories on media about Mukesh Ambani's 5000 crore rupees residence; are not needed at all; Then I agree with you.

    As no matter what country one lives in, unless one is an ascetic, climbing ladders is always an intention, be it economic or social. In addition, non-essential indulges supports art: Be it engineering, home decor or anything.

    Those who drag "criticism of Wealthy man's wealth exhibitionism " too much are much like Urdu Poet Faiz, who lived royally but penned poems about poverty and scarcity.

    Regarding, Vaastu, it's effective.

    Found the write-up very interesting and thought-provoking. Thanks :)
