Vastu consists of a set of principles that defines the planning and arrangement of space to enhance and ensure a peaceful dwelling. It has two components; Vastu-Shilp and Vastu-sastra. Vastu-Shilp (architecture) -relates to planning space, ventilation, sunlight, aesthetics, etc., whereas Vastu sastra (the science of directions) -translates to energy building and energy balance. Vastu is an ancient Vedic science and responds to the positive energies from the five elements of nature; Earth, Fire, Water, Air, and Space balancing them to bring harmony in the life of a person. Minus the superstitions, Vastu is logical in approach and due to its response to the local and climatic context, it finds relevance today in the 21st century.
