The Sanskrit word Vastu means a dwelling or house with a corresponding plot of land. The Vastu takes the meaning of “the site or foundation of a house, site, ground, building or dwelling-place, habitation, homestead, house”. The underlying root is vast “to dwell, live, stay, reside”. The term Shastra (science) may loosely be translated as “doctrine, teaching”.
Vastu-Sastras (literally, a science of dwelling) are ancient Sanskrit manuals of architecture. These contain Vastu-Vidya (literally, knowledge of dwelling).
The Indian system of an ancient era architecture (Vastu) is based on three main important elements i.e. – Bhogadyam (utilitarian/fit for the specific purpose), Sukha Darshan (aesthetics) and Ramya (customer delight / inner delight / spiritual satisfaction). The mud pot (lota) is often considered the perfect combination of these three elements. These have been described in Mahabharata when Yudhishthir sits in despair looking at barren Indraprastha.
Proposals tracing potential links of the principles of composition in Vastu Shastra and the Indus Valley Civilization have been made, but Kapila Vatsyayan is reluctant to speculate on such links given the Indus Valley script remains undeciphered.
According to Chakrabarti, Vastu Vidya is as old the Vedic period and linked to the ritual architecture. According to Michael W. Meister, the Atharvaveda contains verses with mystic cosmogony which provide a paradigm for cosmic planning, but they did not represent architecture nor a developed practice. Varahamihira’s Brihat Samhita dated to the sixth century CE, states Meister, is the first known Indian text that describes “something like a Vastupurusamandala to plan cities and buildings”.
The emergence of Vastu Vidya as a specialized field of science is speculated to have occurred significantly before the 1st-century CE.
There exist many Vastu-Shastras on the art of building houses, temples, towns, and cities. One such Vastu Shastra is by Thakkura Pheru, describing where and how temples should be built.
Application of Vastu can be broadly on Land and Building. On land, it may be agricultural farms, colonies, plots or even gardens etc. Since all the construction has to take place on land it is imperative that the selection of land is correct and is as per Vastu norms. In a new structure, a lot of things can be easily taken care in establishing the right energy levels by the use of materials allowing natural positive energy to enter and negative/polluted air to go out.
These ancient Vastu Shastras, often discuss and describe the principles of Hindu temple design, but do not limit themselves to the design of a Hindu temple. They describe the temple as a holistic part of its community and lay out various principles and a diversity of alternate designs for home, village and city layout along with the temple, gardens, water bodies, and nature etc.

In view of the above, it is opined that it is not feasible for each and every person to know or read the publications and follow all the norms meticulously for its implementation. Most of us are quite busy and are unable to spare sufficient time in this modern era. Invariably, it is just impossible to follow norms of ancient Vastu Shastra at least for inhabitation purpose but should have basic knowledge of Vastu Shastra so that we at least know that what are the Dosha and Remedies for our progressing life.
Let us find out easiest method to get rid of Vastu related problems or Vastu Dosha. We need not read hips of books and then try to apply remedies accordingly. There are simple and inexpensive methods in ‘Swami Hardas Life System’, which can be learned and applied to achieve desired results. So, don’t worry, try to read the following concept and do accordingly. Some of the remedies can simply be read and practiced. The required results can be achieved by yourself independently on a temporary basis.
VASTU CONCEPT: ‘SWAMI HARDAS LIFE SYSTEM‘
REMEDY FOR SOLVING VASTU RELATED PROBLEMS: No. 1
Vastu plays a very important role in keeping occupants healthy, peaceful and progressive. So far, we have discussed these matters in brief. Every person wants to progress and also takes care while selecting Vastu for various purposes like inhabitation, business, organization, factory or office etc. Some really succeed in their intentions but some do not. Why some fail in achieving health, peace, and progress?
The reason is simple, maybe they were not aware of the Vastu Dosha. As per prevailing Vastu Shastra, certain things of the Vastu should be to the certain direction, which could not be maintained for one or other reason. Hence, the problems occurred and were faced by the occupants. However, ‘Siddha Vastu Shastra’ is different from these factors.
Dr. Swami Hardas developed such Vastu Science, that believes in remedies and not causes. Moreover, the occupants themselves can apply some of the remedies but some are required to be applied through the trained persons like Siddha Purohit, better known as an expert and trained personnel for applying remedies for removal of Vastu Dosha. The remedies are such that every person can afford to apply and even no alterations to Vastu are required to be carried out, which involves heavy expenses.
Now let us first know whether we are really suffering from the Vastu Dosha and what are its indications?
- No peace in the Vastu ultimately losing ‘peace of mind’, every occupant argues or quarrels with each other.
- Quarrels do take place among occupants without any important or valid reason.
- Repeated failures in the work undertaken and hence desire to work diminishes.
- Shortage of food and money gradually realized.
- Development of unknown fear, to see bad/fearful/horror dreams while in sleep.
- The sickness of permanent nature, no medicines work even though rightly prescribed by the Doctor, resulting in loss of ‘health’.
- The herculean efforts put in for any task, get failed repeatedly, resulting in loss of ‘progress’.
- The repeated loss in business or work undertook and repeated accidents.
- Machines in the factory do not work properly or do not give the required output.
- Troubles from laborers in a factory or office, they do not stay at work permanently.
- Animals do not perform well or do not give the required output as milk etc and fall repeatedly sick.
- To attract and get involved with bad habits, to always think bad or negatively.
Such symptoms if found, one may come to a conclusion that the problems may be because of improper Vastu and appropriate remedies are required.
It is not possible for each and every person to have Vastu as per the norms of Vastu Shastra. Some may have to choose rented houses, houses in society schemes; flat schemes etc but do not worry. The most appropriate and result oriented Siddha Remedies are for the rescue of such occupants. One need not alter the Vastu, just apply the Siddha Remedies and get rid of the problems.
Let us observe and follow the following few tips while purchasing a plot for construction if new Vastu has been decided to be constructed: –
- If the plot is suitable and meets all your materialistic requirements, buy it. Do not worry unnecessarily for the directions, road, a color of the soil, slop etc. We have remedies for these problems. But be strict and sincere for legal formalities like having proper documents, registration of purchase of plot etc and think of surroundings too. Now you can go ahead for construction.
- Before Starting Construction: Before the construction starts, use ‘Siddha Sanch’ (A packet of the unique product containing Gol, Square, and other products) for removal of negativity and establishing positivity in the plot, anybody can use this Siddha Sanch since necessary instructions have been provided along with.
- Starting Construction: When construction starts, keep one ‘Square’ provided with ‘Siddha Sanch’ in a place where foundation work has to start and say Sankalp three times “the construction should go well without any problem” and keep four Gol in each corner of the plot and one Square in the center of the plot.
After Completion of Construction: Use ‘Siddha Vastu Shanti Set’ (A packet of the unique products) in a newly constructed Vastu. All Vastu Dosha will vanish this way on a temporary basis and now start residing in it. The Vastu will give all the benefits.
But it would be wise to go for achieving permanent results. When newly house is constructed, the readymade house, office, factory etc is purchased, get ‘Siddha Vastu Kawach’ done before residing in it. This is a process of one day and the activities consist like Badha Homa, Manokamna Homa, Siddha Pooja and finally Kawach to Vastu.
At this stage also whatever problems exist or likely to emerge in near future will gradually start to vanish and the Vastu will become favorable. The process can also be adopted for a rented house or any other Vastu. The only care has to be taken before leaving the Vastu that the Kawach i.e. Gol and Square may be removed before vacating the Vastu and they may be disposed of by immersing in river or lake where water is more.
Benefits of Vastu Kawach: The effects of Vastu Kawach are seen within 03 days from its performance. The negativity of any nature will not enter the Vastu. No harmful insects like Scorpios; Snakes etc will enter the Vastu. Even no person with bad intentions will enter the Vastu. No theft will take place in the Vastu. Occupants of the Vastu will get security, happiness, health, peace, and progress.
Problems like a misunderstanding, quarrels, tension, failure in work undertaken, repeated failure etc will be solved and Vastu will become favorable. Despite, if it is observed that some of the problems still persist, Siddha Sanch or Siddha Extractor and Siddha Charger may be used at least once in three months so that required results are achieved within the shortest period. Siddha Pooja also may be performed at least twice in a year so that positivity remains for a longer period.
The Siddha Vastu Kawach lasts for life and expenditure is also meager. It is opined that whether a problem exists or not, it is advisable to perform ‘Siddha Vastu Kawach’. Nobody knows when the problems will emerge hence it is good to perform it. We do not advise any alteration to the Vastu and unnecessary spend money. Now let us learn in brief about how the ‘Siddha Vastu Kawach’ is performed by Siddha Purohit involving inhabitants.
- The Siddha Purohit comes prepared to a Vastu where Siddha Vastu Kawach is required to be performed.
- As a first step, he performs some unique activities with the help of some unique Siddha Products in a Vastu for removal of negativity/Dosha. He understands where and what Dosha is in a Vastu with the help of pious Siddha Energy. This process consumes almost two hours.
- As a second step, he gets prepared and performs a unique ‘Badha Hawan’ involving inhabitants for removal of negativity/Dosha. This process consumes almost one and a half hour.
- As a third step, after a gap of an hour, he gets prepared and performs a unique ‘Siddha Pooja’ for establishing positivity in a Vastu. This Pooja is followed with a reading of ‘Gurukrupamrut Pothi’, thus it consumes almost two hours. This Pooja is also performed for establishing positivity/favorable energy.
- As a fourth step, soon he gets prepared and performs a unique ‘Manokamna Homa’ for establishing of positivity/favorable energy in a Vastu. This also consumes almost one and a half hours.
- And finally, after a gap of almost half an hour, some unique Siddha Products e.g. Gol and Square are placed wisely underneath the ground for arresting positive /favorable energy, which would help inhabitants to improve health, balance peace and progress favorably. This process needs a minimum one to 3 hours, depends on how small or big Vastu is.
Thus, the complete process of ‘Siddha Vastu Kawach’ gets completed almost within a span of almost 9 to 11 hours. This process is unique as Siddha Energy is involved, which is favorable and only favorable to all of us. This process is quite different compared to a prevailing method – Vastu Pooja.
