Vaastu Shastra is a metaphysical science. In the age when it was formulated, the society was largely illiterate, the illiteracy generating a fear of the unknown. Science was beyond the realm of their understanding while religion was omnipresent. It was therefore simpler for the ancient Vaastu experts to spread the concepts of the Vaastu Shastra through the intricate network of religion and superstition. Unfortunately, as time passed only the superstitious filtered down the generations, while the actual theory eluded the world. In simple words, Vaastu Shastra helps us to make shelters in harmony with the Mother Earth and Nature. This will support the well being of the person himself and the society by influencing his attitude and actions.
