Vastu is an inherent energy concept of science. We cannot see energy with our naked eyes but we can realize and see its application in different forms and fashions. Universe is one of the beautiful creations of nature and everything stands alive only in the limelight of truth. Just like every subject of human aspect is governed with rules, regulations & acts, similarly the nature has also got certain key factor principles for smooth governing of its residents, in which "Vastu stands for nature law" and ignorance of law is not an excuse anywhere. Here are some of the basic rules that everyone should follow.
- A plot with all corners 90 degrees having two sides road front and back is a good plot.
The open space left in North and east should be more than South and West.
- The maximum construction should be done in South, West and southwest portion of the plot.
- A pond or a water body should be placed in Northeast corner of the house.
- A house should be designed in such a way so that there is maximum entry of sunlight and proper cross ventilation.
- The entire opening should be made on the North and East Side of the house.
- Trees of any kind should not be grown in eastern or northern, northeast directions.
- Only small plant can be grown in North, east, Northeast.
- The hearth or oven must be arranged in eastern southeast direction of the entire house, in such a way that the person cooking faces east.
- The shadow of any tree should not fall on the house.

Nowadays we hear a lot about the importance of ecology, pollution - free environment, nature and all in big seminars and conferences. Our ancestors knew the secret of how to live in perfect harmony with nature and enjoy all that it bestows in plenty for the upliftment of mankind.
In the end I would like to say that you cannot become a doctor by reading books neither you can become architect by reading the books, similarly you can not become a vastu shastri by simply reading this and other sites and you should never try the remedies without proper knowledge and must consultant some Vastu advisor.
