The principals of scientific vaastu are formulated keeping in mind the influence of the sun, its light, heat and energy, directions of the wind, Earth’s magnetic field and the influence of cosmos on our planet. As the solar system has a profound impact on the eco system similarly Vaastu impacts the occupant and the building. Scientific vaastu uses highly specialised instruments like:

  • Lecher Antenna- The lecher antenna is designed to measure the wave patterns of extremely subtle energy fields. it is an instrument that measures the energy fields surrounding the body and the building. This can detect earth’s energy grid. Additionally, it measures Geopathic stress, positive and negative energy. It is the first instrument in scientific vaastu which could measure various types of phenomenal energies. The lecher antenna is based upon nano technology. It gives practical guidelines on site selection.
  • EMF Scanner- The EMF affects human mind and body since each body cell acts like a radio receiver and hence we are affected by these subtle energies in our work and sleep. Over exposure to EMF can result in various types of disorders. The source of EMF in buildings can be found in electric wires, cables, emissions from instruments like TV, computers, microwaves, phones, Wifi etc. To reduce electric conductivity in a building for the benefit of the occupant.
  • Hygrometer- It is an intrument that measure relative humidity, or the amount of moisture in the air. For the occupant’s benefit, the RH level of the premise should be balanced.
    RH level below 40 degree…you feel dry.
    RH level above 75 degree…you feel sticky and humid.
  • Lux-o-meter- This is a scientific instrument for measuring light. It operates through a photoelectric cell which senses light and converts it into electrical impulses. Light has 2 sources which are natural and artificial. In a building, light levels must be balanced for best thermal visual comfort. Low light levels can cause various health, problems, poor eye-sight. 100-300 lux is a perfect range for balanced light level of a room.
  • Sound Level Meter- It is an instrument that can measure sound level of different noises in the buildings. Sound pollution is displeasing and disrupts the balance of human life. Our exposure to sounds can lead to stress, aggression and permanent loss of hearing.

In scientific vaastu the approach that we follow is humancentric, hence the psychologypersonality and attitude of the occupant is taken into consideration while designing the building. The colours are chosen according to the behaviour, personality, age and psychological demands. It is even essential to understand Light, Direction, Environment, Bedhead, 5 sense comfort in a building according to the occupant’s psychology. Perfect integration of the building and environment promotes perfect balance.

Scientific vaastu works to create solar efficient buildings. The orientation of rooms, building materials to be used, shape of the building etc. are suggested according to the climatic conditions of the region. For example:

  • In hot region we need proper ventilation, window shades, cool colours and compact styles for buildings to develop a soothing effect.
  • In the cold regions we use solar chimneys, slanted roofs, and heat absorbing glass to promote a warmer ambience at home.
  • Scientific vaastu understands the different geographical conditions in the northern and southern hemisphere of Earth and is applied according to the country’s location and climatic condition.

Following the Green guidelines is an essential part of scientific vaastu as the main focus is on the perfect integration of the occupant, building and nature. It is a common sense based science of constructing buildings by incorporating modern concepts using latest technology for the ever changing lifestyle and infrastructural demands. The emphasis is on renewable energy and minimising resource consumption thus cutting down on wastage. The prime focus is on setting a limit for the overall ecological balance.

Vaastu is applied to the external environment and to the plants and gardens surrounding the house. Nature in the form of trees and plants and water bodies like fountains, waterfall, ponds must be incorporated in our environment to form a bond with the natural world
