    Vastu Purush and Vastu peethas

    Karma Kanda advocates installation of different types of Vastu peethas according to the purpose of construction. Vastu purush is imagined on the area on which the house is to be constructed. In this manner we can have vastus starting from one 'pada' up to one thousand 'padas'.

    Vastu Rajavallabha states :

    ग्रामें भूपति मंदिरे च नगरे पूज्यः चतुःषष्टिके।
    एकाशीतिपदै समस्त भवने जीर्णो नवाद्धं शर्केः।।

    प्रसारे तु शतांशकैः तु सकले पूज्य तथा मण्डपे।
    कू पेषझनवचतुभाग-साहिनों वाण्यां तडागे वने।।

    The above mentioned shlokas states that one should worship 64 pada vastu for a village, town or a palace, 81 pada vastu for a residential house, 49 pada vastu for an old door, 100 Pada vastu for all types of mandapas and mansions, 144 or 194 pada vastu for a well, pond or a water body.

    The shastras also mention :

    दुर्गा प्रतिष्ठा विषये निवेशे तथा महार्चासु च कोटि होते।
    मेरौच राष्ट्रेष्वपि सिद्धलिंगे वास्तुसहस्त्रोण पदे प्रपूज्यः।।

    For building a country or a capital or a city etc., 1000 talika vastu peetha should be worshipped. Similarly for the 'Pratishtha' of Durga ji and of a 'Siddha' Shivalinga also, 1000 talika Vastu peetha should be worshipped.

    Brahma Sthan

    The Brahma sthan is considered to be the centre of the plot. It is the focal point of all the energy. This is one of the most important points of consideration in Vastu. Brahmasthan of the vastu purush is the area around the naval, heart, lungs, stomach, secret parts and the thighs. The same principle applies to the plot also. Because such sensitive body parts of the Vastu purush are located in the brahma sthan, this place should be kept open and free from any kind of irritant like weight, pillar and the like. If the residents of the house want to live happily, then they should not construct anything in the brahma sthan. Brahma resides in the following manner in the plot.

    Vastu and the Gods

    Different gods represent different body parts of the vastu purush.

    According to the Shastras :

    ईशा मुघ्नि समाश्रिता श्रवणयोपर्जच नामादितिः।
    आपतस्य गले तदंशयुगले प्रोक्तों जयदूचारितिद।

    उक्तावर्णत-भधरौ स्तनयुगे स्यादापवत्सो हदि।
    पंचेंद्रादि सुराइच दक्षिणभुजे वामे नागादभः।।
