5 Basic Elements in Vaastu Shastra

In Yogashastra, the flow of prana in the body is correlated with the virtues of five basic elements, and the qualities of five elements in relation to human body are also defined. Colour, shape, taste and smell of five elements are categorized in Vaastushastra. Amongst these colors, shapes, tastes and smells Vaastushastra defines qualities associated with Prithvi and Jal tatva as good and those with Agni-Tej as unhealthy, while qualities with Vayu tatva are considered as inert. This classification matches the scientifically analysed mineral content in the soil acceptable for use in the base of the Vaastu.
Any abode demands contribution of all the qualitative parameters like color, taste, shape, form, sound and touch. All these qualities are attributed to Prithvi tatva alone. Hence, Vaastu science gives importance to influencing expression of Prithvi tatva. Here, we see how foundations of Vaastu concepts have been derived from Yogashastra. A deep understanding and right selection makes it possible to match definitions in Yogashastra and applications in Vaastushastra.
Drawing from the Yogashastra insight, Vaastushastra allots specific characteristics to the five basic elements. The element ‘Earth’ is visualised as yellow-coloured, ‘Water’ as white, ‘Fire’ as red, ‘Wind’ as blue, and ‘Ether’ as having no definite colour property, to have to borrow color from any other element.
The classification and characteristics of these elements can be described in terms of varna(colour), akar(shape), swad(taste) and guna(quality). Vaastushastra begins with the selection of a plot and type of soil, qualifies shapes suitably conforming to the cosmic balance of Prithvi tatva- the Earth element. In categorising qualities of soil to suit cosmic balance, Jal tatva is considered good, Agni tatva as inert and Vayu tatva as unacceptable. As explained earlier, squares and rectangles exhibit the typical perfect balance as the magnetic flux is uniaxial.
The shape defined for the earth element is a square or a rectangle. All the other shapes being dynamically unbalanced are considered as useless. From the chart we can observe that only Prithvi element is considered good. In Vaastushstra the type of soil essential for selecting a plot and building a house should be white, yellow or at least red in colour. The taste recommended is sweet or at the most, slightly salty. White and yellow soils have natural pest-controlling qualities due to the presence of minerals like calcium, potassium, magnese, magnesium, etc. Water-logging possibility in these soils is characteristically low, offering natural plinth protection, avoiding differential settlements and seasonal fluctuations. Due to white and yellow colours, the soil has good thermal insulating properties, reducing direct penetration of solar energy, resulting in benign environment around the house. Additionally, because of better bearing capacities for foundation of these soils, the construction proves to be economical.

A number of people have to face great hardships in life, sometimes even a total destruction of house and property through unforeseen acts of nature like cyclones and tornadoes. This typical calamitous period can generally be predicted from a proper analysis of the horoscope of such a person. As a matter of coincidence, these effects can also be traced to the flaws (vaastudoshas) in a Vaastu occupied by the person, say after a change of residence, during the same period. If these...
