vaastu for business
Facing troubles in Business
Each and every one of us is facing trouble in his business despite trying to succeed in the best of our attempts. Business is the life and soul of a person who is deeply dedicated to the service of the family. Everyone wishes to get a happy and handsome income and enjoy a happy living together with family.
But due to the problems faced by family members due to planetary transitions, one has to suffer loss of money and property, thereby decreasing the overall fortune and fortitude of the family.
Reasons for unexpected loss in business
There are numerous reasons for this kind of unexpected loss in the business of the family. Sometimes, it becomes too much that the entire family business is uprooted just because of some imbalance in small planetary positions and some other factors.
The reasons for getting losses in business can be
- Malefic positions of Rahu in family
- Due to mal-eye or Buri nazar of some one
- Due to Kundali dosh present.
One of the most prominent reasons for the loss in business is due to Rahu. Rahu is one of the major planets after Guru which is responsible for the fortune in business. One must not delay in offering worship to Rahu.
Rahu puja benefits
The benefits of Rahu puja are:
- There is immediate stop in business losses.
- There is gradual increase in the good fortune of the person who owns the business
- The person gets a chance by the lord to advance in the business
- Apart from getting financial increments, the person gets mental and spiritual peace.
- There is no opportunity when the person will get a chance to promote himself to a higher status.

Who is Vaastu Purush ?
Vaastu Purush is said to be the lord of any house, building or structure residential or commercial and mental, physical as well as economic wellbeing of the owner and occupants solely depend upon his blessings. Vaastu Purush is present in each and every plot whether it is big or small. He has a fixed and peculiar body. His head remains hanging down and his body is spread all over the length and breadth of the ground. There is an interesting story in the MatsyaPuran in which the birth of VaastuPurusha is narrated. By reading that story one knows why the worship of the VaastuPurusha is necessary before beginning the construction of any building.
PAURANIC STORY OF VAASTU PURUSHA
Long long ago Lord Shiva fought against the demon named ‘Andhaka’ and killed him. While fighting with demon, Shiva was very much tired and began to sweat profusely. A man was born of the drops of Shiva’s sweat. He looked very cruel. He was very hungry. So he began to make penance to appease Lord Shiva and get a boon from him. Shiva was pleased with his penance and appeared before him.The devotee prayed to Shiva,”Oh Lord! Please permit me to eat away all the three worlds.” Shiva said,” Let it be so.” The devotee’s joy knew no bounds. He got possession on all the three worlds and first he was ready to eat the terrestrial world (Bhooloka). Then the celestial (Devatas), Brahma, Shiva and the demons (Rakshasas) also were terrified and caught hold of the devotee encircling him.
VaastuPurusha, being arrested like this, said to the Gods, “Oh, Celestial Beings! You have all caught hold of me and tied me on all the sides. How long shall I be like this, in this position hanging my head down like a prisoner? What shall I eat? Listening to those words, the celestial beings said, “Today is BhadrapadaShuklaTritiya Saturday and ‘Vishakha Star’; So you lie down here on the ground changing your position once in three months, i.e. from ‘Bhadrapada’ to ‘Kartik’ you lie down putting your head in the Eastern direction and your feet towards the West. During the months of “Margashirsha”, ‘Pausha’ and ‘Magha’, you lie down towards the South looking towards the West and put your feet towards the North during the months of ‘Phalgun’, ‘Chaitra’ and ‘Vaishakh’ put your head towards the West and feet towards the East., looking towards the North; in the months of ‘Jyestha’, ‘Ashadha’ and ‘Shravana’, put your head towards the East. North and the feet towards the South & look towards the East. Whatever side you may turn, you will have to lie down on the left side only. You will be known as ‘VaastuPurusha’. You will tease the people, to your heart’s content, who construct buildings and temples, dig wells and tanks on the side towards which you see and in the direction towards which you hold your feet. You may trouble and even devour those people who construct the aforesaid buildings and temples etc. In the direction where you lay your head and back and those who lay foundation-stone without worshipping you or without satisfying you with “Homa” and the like. Then the Vaastu-Purusha was quite satisfied. Since then the worship of Vaastu-Purusha has been in vogue and it has become compulsory for those who want to construct any kind of building.
VAASTU PURUSHA – RITUALS
The presiding deity of Vaastu is called VaastuPurusha. While laying the foundation stone for a new building or while entering a new building, Vaastu Puja and VaastuHoma are performed as prescribed by our scriptures to propitiate the VaastuPurusha and to ward off the evil aspects. I invite the attention of the readers to Canto 56 of the Ayodhyakanda and Canto 15 of the Aranyakanda of the Ramayana. In the first reference Sri Rama mentions to Lakshmana the efficacy of Vaastu and Vaastu Puja as follows :
which means, ‘this Vaastu Puja has to be done by those who wish to live long’. In his commentary on this passage, MaheshaTirthastates :
वास्तुशब्देनगृहाधीष्ठिताशिखिपर्जन्य प्रभर्तिपॅंचचत्वारिशदेवताउच्यन्ते |तासां शमन्म्होमनैवेदबलिभि: पूजानंबोधायनेनोक्तम |
By the Vaastu is meant the forty five deities starting with Agni, Parjanya etc., who occupy the house. Sage Bodhayana has given in the Grihyasutras the procedure to propitiate these deities with Havana, offerings, etc.’ this has to be done by everyone while entering the new house to have a long and happy life.
If one takes the initiative and pains to delve deep into our age old texts, he will find clear cut instructions for keeping the idols of different gods in the Puja in different directions. Even in Panchayatana Puja the idols of the five gods Aditya, Ambika, Vishnu, Ganapati and Shiva have to be kept in a particular order placing them in different directions. When we do the Puja of Sri Satyanarayana Swami, we place the Grahas, Dikpalas and others in different places. All these indicate that each direction (dik) is controlled by one invisible power called Dikpala.
This power is like electricity which is not visible to the naked eye. Electricity can only be seen through a light, fan or any other appliance. If one does not have the required apparatus, this electricity energy cannot be experienced. Similarly, to experience this divine invisible power one has to be thorough with this subject and must possess the power of concentration. Without these prerequisites, one will definitely not be able to understand or experience the efficacy of this Shastra. It is not proper to advise with half baked knowledge, which, in the long run, will prove dangerous to all concerned. Of late, we find some people trying to interpret this science with their own logic. By mere chance some of their versions may come out correct. But unless it is supported by the authority of the Shastra, it cannot be confirmed as right.
Vaastu and Astrology are the two divine sciences with the help of which one can plan to have a peaceful and happy life. These two sciences deal with invisible forces which make one’s life happy or otherwise. Let the persons practising these two sciences exercise proper care while giving predictions or advising their clients about their future. They should also be conversant with the remedial measures as detailed in our traditional scriptures.
The difference between astrology and Vaastu is that astrology gives general direction of one’s life. It defines one’s weakness, tendencies and strength, which one can try to overcome by improving oneself and minimise the weakness through efforts. It gives some solace to one in difficult circumstances.
By using the principles of Vaastu one can definitely, within a reasonable span, improve one’s financial stability and also relationship with the outer world. Once you make the necessary and requisite changes in your house or workplace, other things automatically follow.
Vaastu : An Introduction
The word ‘Vaastu’ is derived from the Sanskrit Dhatuvasa which means to live. So, VaastuShastra is the science which deals with the layout of the site and the building to be constructed. It also gives elaborate details about the construction of townships, palaces, complexes, etc. The main objective of this Shastra is to make humanity live in as perfect a harmony as possible with Mother Nature. This Shastra was given to us by the Maharshis. There are 8 directions in which 4 are called the cardinal directions and 4 sub directions.
In Vaastuthe area is divided into eight parts : East, South, West, North, North-East, South-East, South-West and North-West. Each of these directions has a deity called Dikpala. The Dikpalas are as follows :
The Vedic texts have given different hymns to the eight Dikpalas. Indra is the king of the Devatas. The Sun rises on the Eastern Horizon. Hence East is given the most prominent place followed by North, the direction of Kubera, the lord of wealth. East is the point of health, virtuous living, and fame. North is the point of wealth, name, prosperity. North has astronomical significance also as it points towards the Pole star or the DhruvaNakshatra.
Whenever we discuss about the Vaastu of a plot or building, we first fix the North and East points and then proceed with the mapping out of the building. While fixing the norms for a dwelling houseVaastuShastra has fixed the Southern side for the bedroom. It also states that more space is to be left on the Northern side of the plot. Let us examine the logic behind this. Cool breeze comes from the Southern direction which is described as Malaya-maruta. To enjoy this breeze we require space on the Southern side. ‘A’ and ‘B’ construct one building each, side by side. The Northern side of ‘A’ will be the Southern side of ‘B’. So, automatically when ‘A’ leaves more space; on the Northern side. ‘B’ will have more open space on his Southern side which will facilitate free flow of air. The bedroom which is supposed to be the Southern side will have a lot of fresh air. This means that when one retires to bed after a tiring day’s work, he will enjoy the beautiful cool Southern breeze which will induce good sleep. On the Eastern side also one is supposed to leave more open space. This enables the early morning Sun rays to fall on the front yard and the building. The Sun rays are an antidote for many evils.
The VaastuShastra has been discussed in our scriptures, as well. We find references to Vaastu in the Ramayana at many places. VaastuShastra lays down separate norms for dwelling houses, palaces, complexes, public utility buildings, etc.
Nowadays, we argue that cities are overpopulated. It does not mean that the regulatory authorities should allow haphazard constructions. For construction of temples also, VaastuShastra coupled with Agama Shastra is scrupulously followed. There are varieties of Agama Shastras. Shaivagama, Vaikhanasagama, Pancharatragama are a few to be mentioned. For preparing idols in the temples, ShilpaShastra is followed in consonance with Agama Shastra. All these are independent Shastras. These are mentioned here to enable the readers to understand our glorious and rich traditions and culture.
A study of ancient literature bearing on Jyotisha, mediine, Vaastu, etc., will reveal that the vision of ancient sages was far more deeply based on, and intimately correlated to the realities and values of life than dreamt of in modern times.
A careful examination of Hindu methodology which is necessary for a right understanding of Hindu attainments in VaastuShastra reveals that the whole movement was genuinely and positively scientific, the ultimate goal being spiritual; and it was arrested at an important stage due to political convulsions.
Though perception, observation and experiment were the main criteria of truth, institutional wisdom now neglected in the name of scientific temper, was mainly responsible for development of disciplines like Jyotisha, Vaastu, etc.
According to Indian tradition, eighteen sages, such as Bhrigu, Atri, Vashishtha, Vishvakarma, Maya, etc., have established the science of Vaastu. Amongst the more important works we have Vishvakarma-Vaastu-Shastra, Samaranganasutradhara, Mandana-Sutradhara, Rajasimha-Vaastu, Diparnava, Shilparatna and Mayamata. There are other works which are generally based on one or the other of the classics. Vaastu is also dealt with in the Agamas, such as the Karrukagama, Suprabhedagama, Vaikhanasagama, etc., and works on Tantra, such as the Hayasirsa-tantra, Kiranastantra, and Puranas such as the Agnipurana, Matsyapurana and Vishnudharmottarapurana, etc.
Vaastu principles are more or less common all over India, living from times immemorial as a cultural entity. Vaastu has retained its traditions for thousands of years and it is as relevant today as it was when first propounded. There are also Vaastu texts for Jainism and Buddhism, such as the Gautamiyam, Bauddhamatam and Chaitya. The VaastuShilpatraditions is purely Indian in its fundamental concepts and currency.
There is a belief that the text of the Brihat-samhita, has as its source the work Manasara, though there are some differences of opinion regarding this. Manasara is a comprehensive treatise on architecture and iconography. According to some scholars it is considered to be a “source of all presentations of architecture in Purana and Agama as well as in more specialised textssuch as the BrihatSamhita and Mayamata. In fact this treatise is identified as a VaastuShastra, the first Vaastu being the earth”.Manasara represents the universality of Vaastu tradition and contains also the iconography of Jain and Buddhist images. This work is universally consulted all over India.
The literature on Vaastu can be roughly classified as ShilpaShastra and GrihaVaastu or Devashilpa and Manavashilpa. It is said that the Shaivite and Vaishnavite Agamas of various persuasions as well as the Grihya sutras and the Arthashastra contain abundant material on Vaastu, but somewhat scattered.
