ARTICLES ON VASTU
Energetic Viewpoints in General (by Marcus Schmieke)
field of subtle energies is formed by the borders — walls, fences or
simply legal borders — of a plot, is called vasati in
Sanskrit. In Vasati, we assume that the square is
the ideal form in which an energy field can form in harmony. The
energy field formed on such a square plot is divided by the diagonal
from the southeast to the northwest into two areas. The upper area (the
north and the east) has positive energy, whereas the lower part (the
south and the west) is considered as negative. This is a very gross
division which can be refined endlessly.
The southeastern and northwestern corner serve
as a sort of interface between the positive and negative energies.
In these corners the dynamic elements fire (southeast) and air (northwest)
In the late seventies, the German scientist
Hartmann discovered that the whole earth is covered by a net of
subtle energy lines. Within this net, the energy flows from the east
towards the west and from the north towards the south, so that the
northeast can be regarded as the point of the vasati square in which
the energy enters into the space, while it leaves in the southwest.
The northeast works like an antenna which perceives the energies of
the environment. This capacity is re-enforced, if a water container
is placed in the northeast.
