What does it take to handle the conservation of an old and cherished structure that bags an international award? Architect Vinod Kumar talks of his work at the Sree Vadakkunathan Temple, ahead of his lecture in Bengaluru. By Ranjani Govind

When the Conservation of the Sree Vadakkunnathan Temple at Thrissur in Kerala received the Award of Excellence last year at UNESCO Asia-Pacific Awards for Cultural Heritage Conservation, it was amongst a total of 12 winning projects from five countries – India, China, Lao PDR, Australia and Thailand - to have been recognised. The Heritage Awards had a panel of international conservation experts to review 36 entries from across the Asia-Pacific region.

The award recognises architect Architect Vinod Kumar’s effort that has resurrected not just the brick and mortar of the heritage structure but gave a potent message for professionals, archaeologists and government bodies on the importance of cultural preservation.

What does it take for a conservation architect to look at if the work involved is more than a 1000-year-old structure? Despite the intricate design elements and the Herculean work that involved hundreds of deft artists, the modest Vinod Kumar, who will be in Bengaluru on July 17 for a lecture, still brushes it off as “a learning process” that came his way. “My whole way of looking into architecture changed and I consider it a divine opportunity to be able to work for the project, for which the team won the UNESCO award,” he told Property Plus.

Excerpts of the interview…

Questions:

With your work at the Vadakkunnathan Temple at Thrissur in context, do you observe that conservation itself is gaining momentum in India?

One cannot say so. The work we did in Thrissur was made possible due to the coming together of many factors. Apart from good work being done by other conservation professionals, for the volume of heritage that exists in our country, whatever being done is still very limited. In Kerala itself, we have lost many beautiful Tharavads and Manas (traditional houses). Some of the largest and beautiful ones have also been lost in the past many decades. But of late there seems to be some level of awareness, but we still have immense work to catch up with that includes professionals from the Department of Archaeology, government departments, architects and NGOs.

We need a large movement to protect our heritage. We often encounter the issue of people complaining that only monuments are recognised for heritage, but beautiful small streets and hundred-year-old buildings in small towns and villages are often razed for development. So, an overall understanding and awareness is necessary.

It would have been a difficult task for the team of archaeologists, craftsmen and others to renovate a 1200-year-old temple to its original state, and the authorities then said they owe the success to the coming together of people from different fields…

It was a difficult task for the team of archaeologists, craftsmen and many others to renovate the temple to its original state. This was possible due to the coming together of people from different fields.

We had the Archaeological Survey of India, under whose guidance and control the works were carried out, the actual temple owners, the Cochin Devaswom Board who supported the project, the main donor from Venugoplaswamy Kainkaryam Trust in Chennai and technical guidance from Vasthu scholar Kanippayoor Krishnan Namboothirippad in Kerala. While the support from numerous craftsmen was paramount that made it possible, I worked as the co-ordinator for the project.

We are amazed that the paintings, wood carvings and idols stayed exactly the same as it was seen in the 100-year-old photographs of the temple. How old is the temple actually?

Archaeologists suggest that the temple is around 100 years old but it could be that the present temple structure is around that old, but the place of worship existed earlier. It is said that Adi Sankara’s (800 AD) parents had worshipped in the temple . It is also often said that Lord Parasurama founded the temple. But as in most parts of India, legends, myths, historical facts, all are intermingled and in order to identify exact dates, one may have to carry out fresh research.

If ‘conservation’ is a Western word, explain the difference in approach for the traditional ‘renovation’ that happened at the temple at every step.

Here, we use the word punarudharanam for conservation. I think the basic difference lies in the way a structure is looked at. The attitude, in Kerala or India, traditionally is that a temple or any structure, is considered as a ‘Living Being’. So we respect the structure when we have to handle it. There are clear rules to be followed for every aspect of work, right form the way wood should be cut and used. In Vadakkunathan, we even have a mural which is worshipped.

So, conservation is not just work for the structure/finishes. It runs much deeper. One can say it is a life-giving exercise where traditions are followed as per time-established rules for making the tangible and the intangible equally important.

With no cement, ceramic tiles or paint used, we hear the team used only original plant materials for restoration – and the damaged wood work was reconstructed by dedicated carpenters. Please explain.

The temple is based on bio-energy principles with natural materials such as lime, wood, copper, and stone amongst others serving better to sustain energy. Lime is used as a construction material since time immemorial. Techniques employed in the original construction are said to be the most effective method for repairing and maintaining the traditional masonry. Lime, as a material, allows the building to breathe and offers high degree of thermal insulation and condensation control. Due care was given to the preparation and application of lime mortar.

The preparation of traditional lime mortar mix was developed by experienced indigenous craftsmen involved in temple conservation. Around eight ingredients including jaggery and kadukka (terminalia chebula) were used in its preparation. The damaged wood work was reconstructed by dedicated carpenters. It was a step-by-step process. Each structure, taken up for conservation, was jointly inspected by the team comprising archaeologists, engineers and architects to carry out the plans.

Old wood which could be reused was taken up through wooden joinery with meticulously selected new wood (without nails). As there weren’t any records of renovation taken up in the last 100 years, we found that termite was one of the main reasons for damage. Rafter-ends were mostly susceptible to damage due to effects of rain that is common in Kerala.

The entire wood work was mostly marked, dismantled including the sculptural pieces and after the conservation process, was re-installed to its original position.

After repair, the pieces were often joined in the external work sheds, prior to installing in the structure. Finally wood coating, traditionally prepared with herbs, was applied as a preservative.

What were the other strategies used to keep the original structure intact?

We had seen that paint applied over wood/stone had to be removed to bring back the original colour and material. Wooden sculptural elements covered with lime when removed brought back the original look. The base of many structures was filled with mud over time and we had to remove it to show the stone base, which was also important, from the vasthu angle.

How much time did the renovation take and how many craftsmen worked on it?

It took more than 10 years. Roughly around 500 craftsmen worked for the project at different periods of time.

It included craftsmen working with wood, copper and stone, apart form a team looking after house keeping and horticulture for ensuring environmental improvement. Skilled craftsmen are still available, although their numbers are diminishing due to change in lifestyle and learning systems. One of the contributions of the 10-year-old Vadakkunnathan Temple project has also helped revive many skilled artists and craftsmen.

Original and fake almost all the sectors always, see the news below a fake Vasthu Consultant caught by Interpol.

Indian ‘Vasthu expert’ is on Interpol’s most wanted list


Self-proclaimed Vasthu expert Rewa Kumar, who has been living in the U.S. for many years, can soon be brought back to India to be tried for several cheating and forgery cases registered against her in the country.
A Red Corner Notice (RCN) has been issued against her by the Interpol and her name now figures in its list of the most wanted persons. A request to issue a RCN was sent by the Delhi Police’s Economic Offences Wing to the Interpol few days ago.
Confirming the development, a senior police officer told The Hindu : “She has been declared a proclaimed offender in connection with a case registered against her in 2009. The case has been registered under sections of forgery and cheating at Economic Offences Wing. In connection with the case, a request to issue RCN was sent by the Delhi Police.”
The 59-year-old who lives in California runs a Vasthu center there. She also runs a website divinevastu.net. Around a year back, her pictures with the U.S. President Barack Obama had also surfaced online. The picture carried the caption: “Dr. Rewa Kumar was invited to meet and greet the President of U.S.A., Barack Obama, for her outstanding contributions towards celebrating cultural values.”
Ms. Kumar, who lives with her son and daughter-in-law in the U.S., was married to an Assistant Commissioner of Delhi Police and lived in Gurgaon before moving out of India.
According to her website: “Ms. Kumar is an authority on Vashtu with more than 25 years of experience. Recently, she has been conferred with a Ph.D. degree in Vashtu Shastra.”
Her website also claims that she was ‘Honored with the California State Senate Certificate of Recognition’ for her outstanding leadership and commitment in the Indo-American Community and beyond.
Some complaints about her Vashtu firm were also found online, where people claimed that she cheated them of huge amount of money and has no knowledge of her subject. The Hindu , however, could not individually verify these complaints.

Andhra Pradesh Chief minister Chandrababu Naidu selected

Thullur for Vasthu impact in CRDA?

While the AP CM and all TDP leaders keep blaming KCR for his Vasthu sentiments. It is rather interesting to note that Chandrababu Naidu chose the present location for capital region for the same reason-Vasthu sentiments only. Of the 29 villages in the CRDA jurisdiction, almost eight are on the water front of the Krishna river. 

It also has water front bungalows of prominent leaders like BJP MP from Narasapuram -  Gokaraju Ganga Raju, industrialists and also top guns of the TDP, Congress, some CPI and the YSRC. All of them have bungalows facing the Krishna river and the water touching their feet.

It is said that the Capital will be spread between the historic and Buddhist relics of Undavalli Hillocks and caves, Amaravati Buddhist stupas on the south, Historic temples of Mangalagiri etc on the east and Krishna uplands. According  to Vasthu consultants of  Chandrababu family (Bhuwaneswari ) particularly the capital city should have a water front and be nestled between  uplands and  hillocks.  

"The scenario is just like the Mohenjo Daro landscape and hence the capital will last like the Indus valley civilization," says the expert. The Vasthu experts who were taken to the spot before the Government and Chandrababu decision had also performed certain rituals in the water fronts and the uplands. They had assessed the impact of the five elements - water, fire, air, etc in the region, says Subramanya shastry  , a Vasthu adviser to TDP leaders.

Vasthu on lips, Prime Minister Narendra Modi takes
India’s  Northeast corner ( Ishan kon) by storm

Guwahati: Prime Minister Narendra Modi borrowed heavily from Vasthu Sastra as he termed the northeast, India's Northeast corner ('ishan kon' and said the region must be taken care of to ensure the country's well-being.


 Flagging off Meghalaya's first train and laying the foundation for the Bhairabi-Sairang broad gauge rail line in Mizoram here on Saturday, Modi resorted to ancient Indian design principles to highlight the Northeast’s importance in his government's scheme of things.


 "Those who believe in Vasthu Shastra know that the 'Ishan kon' of a house should be taken care of. Likewise, the northeast should be developed for the progress of the country. The northeast (comprising eight states) is the 'Asta Lakshmi' (eight goddesses of wealth and prosperity). Proper connectivity and infrastructure will transform the northeast into a region of prosperity," Modi said.

Celebrations after Narendra Modi's swearing in, congratulations pour in as Prime Minister

pm

NEW DELHI: Celebrations erupted in the national capital and other parts of the country as Narendra Modi was sworn in as Prime Minister on Monday evening with BJP workers and supporters distributing sweets and setting off firecrackers while greetings poured in for the new government.

NARENDRA MODI SPEAKS IMPORTANCE ABOUT VASTHU SASTRA
8th February 2014

Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday blamed the Congress for the lack of development in the Northeast and accused Prime Minister Manmohan Singh of not doing anything despite being an MP from the region.
"The prime minister of India represents the region in the Rajya Sabha. Everyone knows he has done nothing for the Northeast. He only comes to lay foundation stones or cut ribbons but the projects never take off," Modi, the BJP's PM candidate, said at a party rally in Manipur capital Imphal.
In a rare English speech, Modi also said that the progress of the Northeast was vital to the progress of India.
"In Indian mythology, it is believed that the northeast is a pious place. Those who believe in vashtu Sastra believe that the northeast corner of the house is to be cared for the most."
It is also said that if you want peace and prosperity, take care of the Northeast part of the country. In a country as big as India, if there is welfare of the Northeast, there will be welfare of India," said Modi, sporting a traditional Manipuri headgear.

MADHYA Pradesh Congrees blames bad "Vasthu" for poll debacle
Feb 06 2014


BHOPAL: After a severe drubbing in the assembly elections, followed by poll autopsies and high-voltage war of words, a floundering Congress has suddenly tracked down a reason for defeat: Bad Vasthu in the party headquarters.


The party wants to make amends ahead of the Lok Sabha elections. Congressmen at Indira Bhawan are ready to exorcise the ghosts by removing 'Vasthu dosh' in the building. Mukesh Nayak, Congress MLA and media in-charge in state said, a Vasthu expert was consulted. "He visited the state office and pointed out flaws to be rectified. Senior leaders are supervising the operation," Nayak said.
Some Vasthu flaws have been identified in toilets—as these have been built on 'ishaan kon' (type of Vasthu dosh). The party president too will move his chamber to the ground floor, said sources in Congress.


Speaking to TOI, MPCC president Arun Yadav said, "We have given instructions to ensure sitting arrangements on the ground floor. And this will help better interaction with people. It has nothing to do with Vasthu," said Yadav. Some party workers have also attributed poor performance of Congress to 'Vasthu dosh'.


However, most leaders tried to play down the issue. Manak Agarwal, vice-president of MPCC said, "The decision of the party president to sit downstairs was taken to ensure better people connect. It has nothing to do with Vasthu." And no reconstruction is being done as per 'Vasthu' guidelines, he said.

Good Things on the trot in Year of the Horse
By Dr T.Selva


The noble horse should bring luck and harmony to those who make the proper observances.
WE are four days away from ushering in the Chinese New Year and I’m swamped with queries from readers as to how they can improve their luck and prosperity in the Year of the Horse.
Local and foreign geomancy experts have been giving varying views about this year’s outlook.
Several astrologers and feng shui experts have predicted the Year of the Horse to be a better year than the previous one and there are some who have forecast financial struggles and challenges.
Some people attribute their successes and windfalls to feng shui and spiritual practices and there are groups who relate them to hard work and coincidences.

So which philosophy is correct, or which one do we follow?
It depends on which faith system (Chinese or Indian) you observe.


I spoke to several experts recently on the subject of metaphysics to get some insight on the different schools of philosophy. Feng shui consultant Henry Fong from Kuala Lumpur said that if one wants to have better luck and harmony in the Year of the Wood Horse, they would have to follow the orientation of certain things in their home. For dwellers living in a house that is facing south, he said, they should not carry out renovations or they would activate Tai Sui,which would create problems for the occupants.


(Tai Sui refers to stars directly opposite to Jupiter. They influence the Chinese zodiac, and are involved in religious Taoism and feng shui.)
Fong urged people not to renovate the north sector for fear of triggering the three killing energies resulting in obstacles, disaster and robbery.
He said, however, that it would be good to occupy and spend time in the north, south and south-west sectors.


Fong said the north-west and east sectors should be avoided and if they are unable to do so, they should place metal items there to neutralise the negative energies that can lead to health problems.
Luck and fortune according to Indian vedic astrology is determined by the placement of the nine planets on an individual’s birth chart based on the date, month, year and time of birth.

According to Vasthu Sastra consultant and astrologer Master Yuvaraj Sowma from Chennai, luck and fortune are uncontrollable and people only get what they deserve based on their astrology and not what they desire. He agrees that luck can be induced through spiritual practices like performing specific rituals to woo the energy of positivity.


Yuvaraj said the first six months of this year would produce better results than the second half.
From the Chinese almanac, the horse is naturally lucky when it comes to finance and career; meaning those born in the Year of the Horse will enjoy a better period.
To enhance destiny, luck symbols are made available in feng shui because of the belief that such products help chi flow gracefully through rooms, homes and offices. Energy consultant and author Janarrdhana Guptha from India promotes good luck symbols as an effective way to manifest things that an individual wants to attract into his or her life.

According to him, symbolism is popular in almost every culture and symbols impact our subconscious mind, stimulate confidence and offer good outcomes.“When the geometric shape, size, meaning and their other nuances are properly understood and activated, it results in transmission of energy which is the vital force that governs everything in the universe.
“Chi has the power to alter and amplify energy flow in any space,” said Guptha, who is the author of Guide To Feng Shui Good Luck Symbols. He said the end result of using good luck symbols, charms, amulets and talismans is that they create an environment rich with positive energy that produces positive thinking, focused minds and confidence, and removes blockages.


In order for symbols to produce the anticipated results, the products should be cleansed and energised before use. As for horse figurines, Guptha said the Chinese have always associated it with gifts given to emperors. The horse is the seventh animal in the Chinese zodiac and it embodies noble characteristics such as strength, perseverance, speed, purity and loyalty.
For those who wish to have their talents and hard work acknowledged by their superiors, Guptha said they should place a flying horse figure in the south of their homes.
The horse statuette is ideal for those who are in marketing or the travel industry, and are frequent travellers.

Sooth or dare?: Do the annual predictions by astrologers usually come true? Is there really a science involved and evidence to suggest that this is more than just a guessing game?

As we embark on a fresh round of extrapolations for 2014, we take a quick look at the accuracy of predictions made for 2013.


IN his weekly Sunday column on Dec 20, 2012, The Star chief news editor and the author of Vasthu Sastra Guide T. Selva presented his analysis of the various zodiac signs using the Indian almanac. Under the Kartaka (Cancer) sign, Selva wrote these opening lines: “You will be recognised for your efforts….”


Five months later, a very famous Cancerian in the form of Sir Richard Branson went on board an AirAsia flight, dressed up in a stewardess uniform, complete with fishnet stockings, red lipstick and blue eye shadow. During the six-hour flight, Branson pledged to serve tea, even clean the toilets, to honour a two-year-old bet made with AirAsia chief Tan Sri Tony Fernandes. While Branson became the butt of a million jokes, his stunt also made worldwide headlines and benefitting from the funds collected on this flight was the Starlight Foundation, a global charity aimed at bringing the smiles back to sick children.


Although Selva’s statement was a general one, his prediction had come true.
Meanwhile the prognostication from CEO and master trainer of the Mastery Academy of Chinese Metaphysics Joey Yap, about Malaysia having a good year would be best left to individual interpretation.


He wasn’t completely wrong, of course. In terms of international relations, we did shine. In January, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak became the first Asian leader to hold a two-sided discussion concerning investment opportunities with Japanese Prime Miniter Shinzo Abe. Malaysia also witnessed the peace process for the South Thailand unrest by hosting the signing of a consensus between the Thai government and Badan Revolusi Nasional (BRN), a southern Thailand Muslim group. There was also President Xi Jinping’s three-day visit to Kuala Lumpur.


But if you’re a wildlife conservationist, the above prediction wouldn’t be precise. Who can forget the 14 dead Borneo pygmy elephants near the Gunung Rara Forest Reserve? Poisoned with pesticide, they died slowly and painfully. When their carcasses were found, the sole survivor left was a baby elephant named Baby Joe, seen caressing the body of its lifeless mother.
And what of one Johorean businessman who slipped poisoned fruit into the animal enclosures of the Malacca Zoo causing the death of a sun bear and an Arabian stallion? Or the two youths who thought it was funny to seal a kitten in a jar? Thankfully, Yap was right about the business landscape.


The Star Online reported the Kuala Lumpur Composite Index had hit record highs to end at 1,866.96 on New Year’s Eve. Data from Malaysia Automotive Institute also reported new vehicle sales increasing by 3.9% to a record 652,120 units sold. Over in the manufacturing sector, the Statistics Department recorded 4.4% growth in the manufacturing sector, which hit sales of RM53.2bil in November.


Maybe we can also look to Melbourne-based feng shui consultant Edgar Lok who has 13 years of experience in the field.
Lok was spot on when he wrote in his loktinfengshui.com.au that there would be uncontrollable fires burning in South-East Asia. In June and August, the World Resources Institute reported forest fires in Indonesia flaring to alarming levels causing Malaysia and Singapore to be enveloped in thick smog.
Lok also predicted electricity problems and true enough, Malaysia experienced several blackouts, most notably in Sarawak, when circuits at the Kemena-Bintulu transmission power line tripped, plunging the state into a turmoil of darkness and snarling traffic jams for several hours.
In a twist of events still related to electricity, a freak storm in Penang caused the collapse of a lightning arrester from the island’s Umno building in Macalister Road. Taking the brunt of the impact was an economy rice seller driving past then. Save for parts of his car salvaged from a deep crater left by the lightning arrester, his body was never recovered.


Lok also forecasted volcano eruptions. The Atlantic reported one in Mount Etna, Italy and Volcan Copahue, Argentina.
Just like Lok said, these two happened in the South American region and Europe. However, we suspect he might have missed out one underwater eruption in the seas of Japan.
This event was of particular interest because it gave birth to a new island, about 1,000km south of Tokyo. The last time a similar phenomenon was recorded by Japanese media was in 1970.
Unfortunately, Lok was also right when he wrote the year would see a decline in social niceties with violent uprisings and civil unrest taking place.


There is no need to mention the usual places of strife. The Minion Madness in July where an unruly crowd pulled at a roller shutter of a McDonald’s outlet in George Town until it gave way was enough to affirm people have forgotten that a Happy Meal is supposed to bring smiles, not bruises and frowns.
But the most impressive set of predictions would come from founder and chief researcher of Good Feng Shui Geomantic Research Kenny Hoo when he summed up 2013 as the year of correction.
Proof that Hoo had gotten it right was a Bloomberg report revealing the reduction of entertainment budgets for ministers and a freeze on renovations in government offices in an effort by the Malaysian government to curb public spending. Cuts would also see civil servants travelling in economy class for domestic flights and a decrease in souvenir presentations and refreshments.


He was also very right about it being a “painful” transition for some as price hikes for fuel, electricity, toll, sugar and the introduction of the GST became the hottest topics for the year. However, Hoo didn’t completely hit the mark about the sports sector doing well. While squash and badminton stars Datuk Nicol David and Datuk Lee Chong Wei shone, our sepak takraw team lost to Laos at the Myanmar SEA Games. Overall, Malaysia finished fifth behind Thailand, Vietnam, Myanmar and Indonesia. Datuk K. Rajagopal would also be saying goodbye as his contract has not been renewed, seemingly for failing to get the National football squad into the 2015 Asian Cup.
Speaking on the subject of likelihoods and the chances of prophecies coming true, figuring at the top of the master list of “Favourite Inaccuracy of All Time” should go to Harold Camping, a radio evangelist who said the world would end in 2011.


Since we are all still here, Camping’s prediction obviously did not hold water. However, Camping did predict the coming of his own end. Though the world did not end in 2011, Camping suffered a stroke. Still, he was man enough to redeem hope among his followers by acknowledging he was wrong a year later. Camping died in 2013.

Expert 'Vasthu Team to Visit Sabarimala on Jan 6

An expert ?vashtu ? (traditional architecture) team will visit Sabarimala on January 6 to study and finalise the locations for the renovation of the Malikappuram Devi temple, construction of new prasadam manufacturing-cum-sale complex, Valiyanadapandal and Bhasmakulam.

The team consists of Kanippayyur? Krishnan Nampoothiri, Vezhapparambu Aniyan Nampoothiri, Cheruvalli Naraynanan Nampoothiri and Pala Rajan, Devaswom sources said.

The vashtu vidya team will visit Sabarimala as per the request of the Travancore Devaswom Board and the high-powered committee on Sabarimala infrastructure development to finalise the projects under the Sabarimala Master Plan, Devaswom sources said.

Those bad vashtu vibes

The political grapevine is abuzz with the story of an unsuccessful candidate in recent assembly elections who attributed his failure to secure the contested seat to inauspicious vashtu of the polling station where voting was held. The implied suggestion of the disgruntled politico was that, prior to polls, the Election Commission should engage experts to ensure that all polling centres are vashtu- and feng shui-friendly.

EC presumably has enough on its already laden plate without having to worry about bad vashtu vibes. However our politicians are, by and large, a superstitious lot. They are much given to consulting astrologers and soothsayers to find out what fate the ballot box has in store for them. The point about vashtu might well give them much to ponder about, particularly with 2014 general elections looming on the horizon.

Balance home energy with Space Alchemy

A confident person comes from a confident home where balanced energies provide an ideal environment for growth and happiness. Sage Patanjali has described the ideal condition of a man as Swaroop Awasthanam, which means being established in your own true self. To attain this condition, Vashtu Shastra prescribes conditions that are necessary to create a fulfilling, ideal home and atmosphere. Whereas, if you are prone to nervousness, extreme shyness and are easily frustrated, you need to examine your home through the four-step Maha Vashtu lens to detect the flaw in balance.

All the energies contained in the sixteen Maha Vashtu zones in your home can be tuned to align themselves with the Universal energy or consciousness. When there is a clear link between you and the Universe, the flow of energy is established.

Unfortunately, in today?s topsy-turvy, fast paced life, most people are easily disturbed by the slightest disturbance, and this shows that major energy imbalances exist in their homes.

All 16 vashtu zones in one?s home should be balanced. But one zone especially must be healthy to promote your confidence. This is the south-southeast vashtu zone ? the zone of power and confidence. It grants both mental and physical strength. And mental strength reflects in the form of confidence.

Confidence boosts health. You can control your thoughts positively. Immunity is established with a set of healthy genes and the right attitude. Nervousness, anxiety, fear, anger and frustration ? all these emotions sap immunity. Negative thoughts and emotions are harmful, just like an afflicted zone that will ultimately erode your mind and body. Hark back to what a psychologist does ? he talks you into a confident state of mind and by realigning you, helps you repair your damaged psyche. The vashtu cures act much in the same way, restoring the balance in the zones which sets things right automatically.

According to Vashtu Shastra, the south-southeast vashtu zone is where oil/ghee ideally should be kept, as it promotes strength. Check this zone and do the needful to ensure this zone is in balance. To make a few suggestions ? avoid keeping shades of blue or black here as they lead to fears and lack of confidence. This has been observed and proven in documented vashtu case studies done by certified Maha Vashtu experts. An occupant can lack in strength also due to presence of a shaft or a cut in this portion of the house. By applying a colour strip of red or green, these problems can be managed without resorting to demolition or reconstruction in a house.

Also, analyse the north vashtu zone as it influences your career and opportunities. The south vashtu zone takes care of relaxation and fame, the north-northeast vashtu zone helps in maintaining health and the south-west vashtu zone provides energy for skills and relationships.

If you have a satisfying career, good health, are a skilled and talented person with a pleasant social circle and a helpful official network, you will be fine.

Space Alchemy or Vashtu Shastra is the art of balancing elements and energies in your space so that you find the golden mean. Lack of confidence is often triggered by focusing on what you lack in comparison with others. Let go of such unhealthy feelings to be more confident. Just cleaning north-east vashtu zone of anti-colours and keeping a dustbin in south-southwest vashtu zone will help you maintain a positive state of mind.

You can learn these Maha Vashtu solutions yourself on the basis of practical vashtu case studies. Else, seek an expert?s advice. The balances suggested above are guaranteed to infuse confidence into every aspect of your life.

Try these ancient prescriptions for confidence and change your life. Become the master of your life, and take it exactly where you please, ably and confidently.
