~ Diwali

The literal meaning of 'Diwali' in Sanskrit is 'a row of lamps'. The most popular tradition of Diwali is filling little clay lamps with oil and wick and lighting them in rows all over the house. Lights and diyas are lit to signifying the driving away of darkness and ignorance, as well as the awakening of the light within ourselves. This autumn festival is a five-days celebration, of which each one has its own significance. Entrances are made colorful with lovely traditional motifs of Rangoli designs to welcome Lakshmi, the Goddess of wealth and prosperity.

Vastu Rectification and Pranapratistha of a Home or Office

"This science is complete in itself.
Happiness to the whole world it can bring,
All the four benefits it bestows on you,
Rightful living, money, fulfillment of desires and bliss,
Are all available in this world itself"
-Vishwakarma in Vastu Shastra
 
 

Vastu is a logical explanation of scientific truths and facts about energy patterns in buildings. The Vastu principles are related with the properties (Natural Energies) of our Earth plane. Vastu says that the sources of energies are to be open and the flow of energies is not to be disturbed. Vastu Shastra prescribes desirable characteristics for sites and buildings based on flow of energy ("Prana" in Sanskrit). Many of the rules are attributed to cosmological considerations; the Sun's path, the rotation of the Moon above the Earth plane, magnetic fields, etc. The morning Sun is considered especially beneficial and purifying and hence the East is a treasured direction.

Vastu believes that there are essentially two types of forces, which are equal and opposite in nature. The interaction of these two forces is cosmically ordained and produces a third type of force, which is prana, needed for life to exist. One type of force is subtle and fine. The other is dark and dense. We, for understanding this subject, can call the first one as "positive" and the other as "negative". Prana is liberated by the interaction of these forces. Over the surface of the globe, these forces continuously interact, releasing prana. When a structure is built over the surface of the Earth, it comes in the way of a natural interaction. Both the forces enter the structure where the interaction continues. However, the intensity of forces that enter the structure need not be the same. Depending on various factors like levels, water bodies, door placement, etc., either the positive or the negative can have stronger presence.
