vastuVastu has been a part of our civilisation even when there were no architects, municipalities or any other authorities. Believe it or not, Vastu existed before you were not even born. Our ancestors were very well aware of the importance of this ancient Indian science. They very well knew where to keep kitchen, temple or toilet.

According to the former director of Gujarat State Archaeology Department and currently officer on special duty (OSD) in the department, Vastu Shastra could have further evolved in Dholavira, a relic of a whole Harrapan city. Dholavira, located in Gujarat’s Kutch region, is one of the largest sites of Indus Valley civilisation.
“I have a strong feeling the people of this region used Vastu Shastra,” Rawat once said, when he found that Harappan civilisation used Vastu Shastra.

But now the erstwhile knowledge is going through a testing period. Many so called Vastu pundits use absurd interpretation and spread unnecessary fear and myths which is jeopardising the whole scientific reasoning behind Vastu Shastra.

 MahaVastu has taken a pledge to bust the prevalent Vastu superstition and educate society about the logics behind this science of architecture.

VASTU MYTH: Lord Ganesha at the entrance is auspicious

lord ganeshaWe have commonly seen that people place figurine of lord Ganesha at the entrance of homes, shops, offices and other buildings. By doing this, they are reducing lord Ganesha to that of merely a dwarpal (gatekeeper).

Also, by placing lord Ganesha figurine at the entrance, people face his back when they are inside their buildings. Which is also not auspicious.

To overcome this problem, some people have started placing another image on the inside of the entrance which is again not the right step to do. By placing his image inside outside, they unknowingly face his back when they enter or leave the building. Showing back to lord Ganesha brings abject poverty. So, this practice must be avoided.

FACT:  Lord Ganesha should never be placed at the entrance.
