Ancient Wisdom for the Modern Wired World:
Home, Sweet Home |
May your walls know joy, may every room hold laughter and every window open to possibility.
As the body is the temple of the soul, the Vastu home or workplace honors the temple of the body. The Vastu home becomes the temple that honors the soul, inner peace and harmony reign and you discover tranquility in your personal sacred space.
The Vastu guidelines regarding the directions and the five basic elements, air, earth, water, fire and space or ether encourages the placement of the furniture. Lightweight and delicate furnishings are placed the north and east to allow positive energy to enter the building, and heavy, tall furnishings are placed in the south and west to hold positive energy in the room or building. The sacred center, where blessings from the Divine flow, remains open and unburdened by weight.
This arrangement of furnishings, based on the unchanging elements creates a rhythm that flows thru your rooms, and the building. Your home and workspace will increase the well being of your body, mind and spirit when the principles and guidelines of Vastu are implemented and incorporated. Positive energy is attracted to your home and workspace and life flows more beautifully and easily. In India, where Vastu originated, a Vastu home is known as a Fortune Attracting Home.
Within the tenets of Vastu, the buildings where we live and work are considered a living entity that is deserving of love and respect. When we take good care of our homes and workspace, they will in turn, take care of us.
“A loving atmosphere in your home is the foundation for your life.”
Rules for Living, The Dalai Lama
