It can be slightly deviated towards south or west.and . Because of the fact that stated cause and also the stated effect in a rule are repeatedly observable and testable phenomena.(a) Bed room (Particularly master bed room) of building should be placed in the south-west. If the placement is opposite the effect will be extremely bad.effect relationship between tow phenomena can be considered as a valid " hypothesis" for scientific investigation. the statement giving cause. lime loss of children or financial loss or ill health. . There are numerous such rules developed to deal with every possible situation of lay out of a building and its relation with the sit6e and surrounding roads.

This desired orientation of high-low line of building can be slightly deviated anti clock wise (from S to N to S-E to N-W) with out causing any ill. But the effect will be just negative if the rule is grossly violated. (c) Highest part of the building should be at the south west and the lowest part at the north-east.effect. then the occupant/owner will fetch wealth. health and fame. from S-W to N-E If this satisfied. otherwise effect will be negative.e.(b) The slope of the site should run down south towards north with permissible slight deviation of the slope clock wise i. . If the rule is satisfied then it will cause owner/ occupant to uplift his health wealth and fame.

Once it is done it can be proved either (a) by deducting it logically from one or some established laws and theories of science.3. . It is seen that both the approaches are apparently used by the proponents to prove rules of vastu even though wrong fully. or (b) by testing the validity of the hypothesis by observing the phenomenon in a sufficient number of cases. How a hypothesis is scientifically Proved Before proving a hypothesis scientifically it should first stated in ambiguous way.

laws of theories of science (i.e. scientific knowledge) following logical steps. we accept it . If the logical deduction satisfies the hypotheses.1 Logical deduction and established laws of science First method of scientific acceptance of hypothesis is to prove the hypothesis based on accepted facts.3.

Proponents of this part (called Vastu) of ancient vastu.g. This part was related to the fortune of occupants.) accurate determination of geographic north which may be different from magnetic north. Shastra hail from various professions like law. owner of a building. The term " Vastu in this paper refers to those rules which are practiced by "Vastu . medicine.Is " Vastu" Relevants In Modern Context ? 1. Other parts which are found scientifically valid are normally ignored and not practiced now-a-days (e. INTRODUCTION Practice of " Vastu Shastra" or "Vastu" in short which had been developed in ancient India is spreading like wild fire now-a-days is an elaboration of a small part of ancient practice of Vastu Shastra. Most of them normally practice as "Vastu Pandits" applying certain accepted rules with some variations. Civil Engineering or architecture.

. based on the present day knowledge of science even though these rules are out-come of revealation by regent visionaries of ancient India. While trying to prove any vastu rule scientifically they resort to unscientific approach.It is always advocated by the propoments of the shastra that any Vastu rule can be proved to be scientific. This is because any untruthful guidance to the people of planning of their building may lead to wastage in term of design quality as well was money. This recent development totally related to the practice of architecture calls for serious investigation from the part of architect revealing the scientific status of this subject.

2. Where. Vastu Rule = Cause + Effect. Cause-and-effect relationship Vastu rules are primarily based on " Cause-and-effect" relationship. Let me cite here few of the vast number of commonly followed vastu rules to give an idea about the nature of the rules. Any of the rules contains tow distinct parts of physically testable phenomena. I restrict myself here only to vastu rules related to residential building and its site planning including orientation. . cause = geometrical properties of plan particularly in relation to north direction. First part is related to some kind of planning aspect of the building/house which is considered as a "Cause" and the second part is related to some kind of well being of the owner/occupant of the building/house "effect" of first.

approximately matches with the . Magnetic North may be different in orientation) declination from place to place and time to time . one question still remains : Why matching of the magnetic field of both earth and human body will cause "disturbed sleep. At present however in India magnetic North geographic North. In the original vastu shastra geographic North is used instead of magnetic north.Even if we accept all above queries answered satisfactorily . tension and other connected problems" and why this will not be true when orientation of a person in other direction ? (In this connection it is to note that there is no mention of magnet in the original books on vastu .

surrounding to him . Water bodies placed at South West corners are therefore not desirable the reflected infra red rays from the water body in this direction enter the house and have adverse effect on human body .(b) Vastu and Sun rays : "Vastu and the science of climatology" The sun emits two types of rays . It is also good to have morning rays fall on our eye and which is why the kitchen platform should be oriented towards eastern side so that while cooking food ultraviolet rays will enter the eyes . These rays have various effects on the human body and environment . The sun emits infra red rays during evening hours which are harmful . which have good effect on human body and the environment . These rays have tendency to kill bacteria . . This is way the kitchen is preferred in eastern side . The sun emits ultra violet rays in the morning hours . ultra violate and infrared . This is one of the basic principal of the vastu shastra .

If sun rays enter directly from the zenith . Let us check the truthfulness of these two statements on which conclusions are dependent. This value . The amount of radiation received just outside the atmosphere of the earth on a plane perpendicular to the sun rays is 1353 watt. however may vary due to change in sun .red rays during evening hours".Criticism : (i) In the morning sun emits more ultra violet rays than any other time of a days (the statement actually made is "the sun emits ultra violet rays in the morning hours" which is not true and . per sq. therefore modified to retain the sense ) and (ii) the sun emits more infra red rays in the evening made is "the sun emits infra . . But this variation is not significant and can be ignored .earth distance in a year and also due to solar activity . M on the average which is called "solar constant". radiation value on the surface of the earth will lie within a range of 800-950 watt / sqm depending upon the presence of turbidity in the air .

Let us take examples from book/ journals under wide circulation in the market. If the head is directed towards the North while sleeping. Below two examples are accepted as valid scientific proof of vastu rules in almost all books on vastu.3. as the North pole. (a) Human body as a magnet " Human body itself acts as a magnet with the head. But all there are founded on wrong notion of scientific knowledge. Some sort of falacy is always used to arrive at the conclusion.1 Vastu rules and established laws of science Proponents of vastu rule tend to prove the rules based on the deductive approach from modern laws of science but without following any logical steps.

however small will produce electrical field around the direction of movement. But investigation of the statements quoted in the above paragraph generates certain questions: . Muscles also produce electrical potential . Activity of human being is primarily controlled by the electrical and chemical activity of the body .magnetic field around the part of the body . thus have an effect on the electrical activity of parts of human body.Criticism: It is well established fact that nervous system of the human body communicates with the help of electric impulses . Any movement of charge . Again any surrounding magnetic field will. thus producing electro .

North pole of a magnet is not repulsed by the North pole of the earth as claimed here. In fact North pole of any magnet is North seeking pole . North pole of the earth attracts North pole of all magnets. . It is to note that " the heart is the most powerful source of electric and magnetic fields in the organism" and also that" in the eye the magnetic filed induction is significantly higher that that of the brain.e. (iii) Moreover.(i) Where it is proved that the entire human body the net result of these tiny magnetic fields distributed within the human body is equivalent to a magnet matching the sized of a human body? (ii) Why " heaviest and important part of the body" (i. On the contrary.
