What Is Meditation



In today’s modern world, we are living a mechanical life, running from pillar to post for not just earning daily bread and butter, but, to accumulate all sorts of materialistic wealth and comforts, as they are the determining factors for rating an individual’s success and status of living. Needless to say, such desires have really helped us achieve more than what we require or need but at the same time it has also dragged us into an unhealthy lifestyle. Today’s modern generation is leading a sedentary lifestyle full of stress, anxiety, depression, jealousy, unwanted rage, hatred and what not. It has left us pondering upon various questions regarding the know how about our own self.

There is something that can definitely help us improve our lifestyle quotient and that is undoubtedly meditation. The way you live your life determines your lifestyle but in true sense your perceptions towards the outer world, your inner peace and stability of mind makes your individuality. Meditating regularly helps relieve all the negativities and an individual experiences greater emotional balance, concentration, focus, stability and better health.

How to meditate as a beginner :

Because of our busy and hectic lives, the basic tenets of meditation — relaxation and breathing may seem to be difficult to master, but if you're able to find just a few minutes a day, that's all you need to get started.

1. Be seated comfortably in a quiet place. You can either lay down or sit cross legged on the floor or a chair, whichever posture you feel comfortable in. Then have the palms of your hands face the sky.

2. Focus on your breath. As you take long and deep breaths, feel your breath move from your lungs and out through your nostrils or your throat, just try your best to be as focused as possible.

3. Once you're focused, take notice of your body and how each body part feels. If your mind continues to wonder, try to re-focus , then bring your thoughts back to your breath. Breath 5 to 10 times with full concentration on each breath. Take it a step further and hum "Om" as you breathe out.

4. Practice, practice, practice and just practice.

As each one of us knows, practice makes a man perfect make sure to take out some time each and every day to practice as per your convenience in accordance with your work schedule. After a few sessions you'll hopefully find all your practice totally worth it as meditation can be life-changing!

Once you begin to practice, you'll soon experience a quieter mind, a more open heart, and a sense of inner freedom.

Is vaastu shastra a science or a superstition?

Vastu Shastra


The name Vaastu Shastra itself suggests that it is a ‘Shastra’. Shastra means a rational Science based on observations and facts. It takes into account the laws of nature which are governed by a set of principles. Vaastu Shastra was formulated nearly 5000 years ago and with time and generations it has evolved. Being based on practical facts it has survived the tests of time indicating that it is a Science and not a Superstition.

Vaastu Shastra was formulated by our Rishis as they had the wisdom to understand the thinkings of people. If they had not enforced the principles of planning very strictly, people would have built according to their understanding. Since people have differing tastes and ideas on aesthetics they would have created ugly and unaesthetic structures which might have led them to self destruction and misery. Perhaps to prevent such a situation, the principles of Vaastu Shastra were made as strict rules. It was said that if one followed the Vaastu principles strictly, one would live a happy, content and prosperous life. And if they were not followed, the inhabitants would be sick, unhappy, quarrel with each other and even die at early age. As a result, this ‘Science’ became a ‘Superstition’.

Even today many people follow the basic Vaastu principles while designing their new house or reconstructing one, as they fear that there could be adverse effects if not followed. There are people who exploit the common man’s fears and superstitions and charge exorbitant fees by exploiting the ignorance and beliefs of the people. Such practitioners of Vaastu blindly following the standard thumb rules of Vaastu Shastra, without realising that the changed socio-economic conditions without considering the fact that each site is unique by virtue of the surrounding structures, trees, water sources, orientation, topography etc., and hence should be planned accordingly.

To really help people achieve positive energy in their buildings, one has to have in-depth knowledge of Vaastu and understand the logic and reasoning behind each and every principle.

The city of London is famous and rich because it is situated on more or less the ideal principles of Vaastu Shastra.

It is found that at the root of the progress and prosperity of the cities like New York, London, Mumbai, Singapore, Hong Kong, etc. are always the benedictory principles of Vaastu Shastra. It is also found that as one progresses towards the North-East in the United States of America the land becomes richer and richer.

Study the location and construction of the famous temple of Tirupati from the angle of Vaastu Shastra. Its legendary prosperity is mainly due to the exemplary implementation of the principles of Vaastu Shastra. The main temple is situated on the South-West side of the temple precinct. On its North-East direction is a lake and pond. The dining hall of the temple is on South-East side while the North-West and North side of the temple is allocated to the godown (storage place) for grains and items require in the kitchen. The entire temple precinct is of square shape as a result of which its axis and that of the Earth are perpendicular to each other. The main temple is occupying only the one fourth area of the total precinct and on its Eastern and Northern side is an open area. Thus the Tirupati temple of Lord Balaji is an ideal place according to the norms of Vaastu Shastra which is why it is the most prosperous temple on earth.

Vastu Shastra for Personal Life

Vastu Shastra


Vaastu Shastra and Human being:

Life is all about love, sacrifices, commitments, joys and relationships. Vaastu Shastra can make you satisfied mentally, physically, intellectually and spiritually. It creates a perfect balance of Mind, body and soul. With the help of Vaastu Shastra we can create and support a protective environment for intellectual, spiritual, physical and emotional growth of a person. Vaastu Shastra helps in creating a positive and healthy environment for a person.

Vaastu Shastra and home:

Interiors not only relate to human psychology but it also has deep rooted connections with human sub consciousness.

Human beings are in close relationship with the place where they live and work. They share a very sensitive relationship with their home. The bonding between a home and its inhabitants should be complete and continuous. Directions play a major role in creating an aura of passion, tranquility and rest, which are very important for your love life to go smoothly. Moreover, it is a known fact that the people are closely linked with things around them like furniture, gadgets, decorative items, interior, materials etc which combine altogether and create an environment, which has a strong impact on a person. The best said evidence of strong bonding between a human being and his/her home can be seen when the occupant has to sell the house. The memories of various phases of life makes it difficult to take such a decision. Here, with the help of Vaastu Shastra this relationship between occupants and home can be positively improved by creating positive aura in the house.

Vaastu Shastra means balancing a building with the laws of nature. It is a science to create a perfect harmony between nature and building, such changes depend on the favourable and unfavourable directions and the elements related to them.

The occupants would respond in a better manner if the building is so designed considering the conscious and unconsciously psychological set up of the occupants.

Behind every Vaastu Shastra tip is a deep scientific reason and hence it becomes more plausible to follow. For instance, with a few minor changes in a bedroom's decor, a couple can perfectly harmonise the universal life force and promote the flow of warm and sensual energies.

Various aspects of our personal lives can be greatly improved by Vaastu Shastra , which is a science that reforms the external influences to bring a positive change in a person's life, including his relationship with the spouse, power of conception and even progeny. It also facilitates a healthy, calm and relaxed state of mind.

Interestingly, not just its directions, but also the decorative items placed in the bedroom, including artifacts, paintings, mirrors, statues etc. have a direct bearing on your life. For example, an aromatic candle kept in the South-east direction adds to the excitement level. On the same lines, the incorrect placement of a mirror in the bedroom induces the feeling of infidelity in either of the two partners. Similarly, a couple of love birds or doves on the bed rest inculcate feelings of togetherness.

Vaastu Shastra for Business

Vastu Shastra


Finance is the heart and soul of every business. Money is a common denomination that facilitates getting us what we want in this world and in our lives. Over a period of time, we have evolved from using the barter system to a new approach. But still the core of the system is the same. We either give or get services or products, and in exchange we give or get money. While small scale businesses’ financial circulation depends majorly on payment, receipts and cash flow, big businesses have their own sources to maintain financial stability. Whether it is starting up a new business, or achieve faster growth with expansion, mergers or takeovers, getting funding from banks, financial institutions, equity markets or investors is a must. In all of these situations, application of Vaastu Shastra attracts the right investor or support from financial institutions and markets.

For a good business your products or services should not only be attractive but also readily accepted by the people. If people are attracted towards your products or services they spend money to buy them. If business is good then your home also starts attracting money.

A good business can come from all directions. For a business we need to materialize good business deals, grab opportunities at right time, support from bank, right investors, support from market, quick recovery of payments, and control the expenditure. For desired results we can apply Vaastu Shastra, by just keeping the elements and objects in the correct directions.

Rahu Kalam



According to Vedic astrology, certain parts of the day, called Rahu Kalam, are inauspicious periods and one should not undertake any auspicious work during these periods – especially any new undertaking.

In Indian Astrology, each day of the week has been assigned its respective ruling planet viz. Monday is ruled by Moon, Tuesday by Mars etc. However, Rahu and Ketu have not been given any specific day as they are treated as nodes. However, Rahu and Ketu are given one and half hours time in a day resulting three hours for Rahu and Ketu in which they can cast their malefic influence since Rahu is a natural malefic.

Rahu Kalam (Rahu Kaal) is an inauspicious period of time for a particular day. In other words, Rahu Kalam is the time during which Rahu seizes the opportunity for influence. During this time one should avoid any auspicious work like starting new business or project, buying expensive items, investments, business transactions, journeys, meetings, interviews etc. It is believed that any thing lost during Rahu Kalam is never found.

Rahu Kaal is one-eighth part of the difference between the Sunset and Sunrise time of a particular place for a specific day of the week. The reason for its 8th part is that in some Indian astrology systems, Rahu is considered to be the 8th planet.

Rahu kalam differs from place to place depending on Sun-rise & Sun-set time. The day duration from Sun-rise to Sun-set, at a particular location, is divided into eight equal parts. There is no Rahu Kalam during the first period of any weekday. On Monday it falls on the 2nd period, Saturday 3rd period, Friday 4th period, Wednesday 5th period, Thursday 6th period, Tuesday 7th period & Sunday 8th period.

The following are the details of the Rahukalam (also known as rahukal or rahu kal) periods in in operation during the various week days. This is based on 6:00 AM local Sun-rise time and 6:00PM local Sun-set time. If the Sun-rise and Sun-set times are different, you can take the Day duration, divide it in to 8 equal parts and apply the above given formula.
