Message by Dr. Smita: Vastu Shastra is not an over the counter medicine (OTC). One should never practice it by reading few articles or books as it can have negative effects and one might also end-up spending a huge amount of money on the building. Like a human body, every house/office is a different study, hence it requires an expert to analyse it. Vastu Consultants are the doctors of buildings.
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 art of worshipping has got certain key factor principles to
attain all its benefits.
While planning a house, due to the space constraints, many people tend to
ignore a separate pooja room but we must not sideline the need to make a
place for GOD. Thus by creating a room for worshipping, we are creating a
room to get charged with positive vibrations every morning and that energy
will energize our environment, mind, body and soul. Our work efficiency will
increase and so the progress, prosperity and peace.
This room should be designed carefully because when you do meditation, you
should gain the positive energies and then you can feel charged. If it is in
wrong direction, then no matter how much meditation you do, you will not
feel charged. There are certain rules which one must follow before the
commencement of designing a pooja room.
