Q: Explain types, properties & uses of Mandala?
Ans: In Hindu cosmology the piece or the surface of land is represented in the form of square. The earth is represented as four cornered with reference to the horizon's relationship with sunrise and sunset, the North and South direction. It is known as Chaturbhuji- four cornered- and represented in the symbolic form of the Prithvi Mandala. Each side of square can be divided from 1 to 32 divisions therefore, the number of squares in mandala may vary from 1, 4, 16 till 1024. Each of these mandalas are used in specific contexts and has a distinct name.Whatever the case may be, each square is sub-divided into smaller squares by drawing parallel lines to the sides.

The central area in all the mandalas is brahmasthana and space occupied by it varies in different mandalas. The most important mandalas are:

  • Manduka / Chandita Mandala with 64 squares
  • Paramasaayika Mandala with 81 squares
Normally, ideal position of Vaastu Purusha is depicted by head in northeast & feet in southwest. While in Manduka Mandala, the ideal position is depicted by keeping head towards east & feet towards west. The mandala is widely used for:

Site Planning & Architecture
In site planning & architecture, mandala is used through the process called Pada Vinyasa. With this method, any site can be divided into grids or padas. The zoning of the site and disposition of the functions of building are based upon the position of the god’s occupying the various modules.

Site
Sites are known by the number of divisions on each side and site of any shape can be divided by using Pada Vinyasa.

Building
In buildings, generally the position of sakala & nishakala are applied, based on the position of God in mandala. Also, we give some guidelines for zoning of site and distribution of rooms in a building.

Q: What is house grid?
Ans: As per Vaastu, home is divided into four quaters or energy grids. North-east (called as isana), south-east (agni), south-west (niruthi) and north-west (vayu). The space for building home is arranged in the following manner:

  • North-east for Shrine
  • South-east for Kitchen
  • Southwest for Master Bedroom
  • Northwest for Storage of Grains

Since ancient times, open courtyard system of house design is followed and the space occupied by the central squares is called brahmasthanam. The row of squares surrounding the brahmasthanam is walkway, while the corner spaces are rooms with specific purposes.

Q: What are the aspects of environment & energy in vaastu?
Ans: Vaastu believes that surrounding environment is made up of the sum-total of the energy force fields of numerous animate and inanimate forms, solar and other planetary radiations, and earth radiations etc. Energy is considered as emanating from northeast corner. Therefore, sites sloping down from higher levels of south & west towards north & east are considered good. Levels & height of buildings should be higher in south & west as compared to buildings of north & east. Followed by southeast, northwest & northeast, southwest corner should be the highest. Based on flow of energy, Vaastu Shastra prescribes desirable characteristics for different sites and buildings.

Sites with longer east-west axis and extended northeast corner are better. East is a treasured direction because of the morning sun and sleeping in north direction is harmful because earth’s strong magnetic lines emerge from north.

Morevover for selection of the appropriate site, Vaastu describes different criteria. The most exalted shape for any site is square but, rectangle is also acceptable. Firstly, soil examination or bhu-pariksha is carried out and based on the volume occupied by this soil in the pit, its characteristics are determined.

In Vaastu, most of the rules are attributed to cosmological considerations such as rotation of earth, magnetic field, sun’s path etc.

Conclusion:
Vaastu Shastra deals with various aspects of designing and building environments in harmony with the physical and metaphysical forces. It has evolved as a compilation of planning principles for a healthy living based on the knowledge base of the time (similar to Western treatises such as Vitruvius') and was not meant to be absolute. The current popularity of the systen stems out from from its focus on a wholesome approach to space and form.
