Business growth and career are important aspects of everyone’s life. But, at times, there are continuous unexpected and unexplained hindrance to one’s growth either business or career. Did you know that your placement of department or employee cubicles can determine your company’s growth and success.
It’s time to look at an age old proven science – Vaastu Shastra.
The origin of Vaastu Shastra dates back to over four thousand years ago. Vaastu is a part of Vedas. The art of Vaastu originates in the Stapatya Veda, a part of the Atharva Veda. It used to be a purely technical subject and it was only confined to architects (Sthapatis) and handed over to their heirs. The principles of construction, architecture, sculpture etc. as enunciated in the epics and treatise on temple architecture, have been incorporated in the Science Vaastu. Its depiction is there in epics like Matsya Purana, Skanda Purana, Agni Purana, Garuda Purana and Vishnu Purana.
It is said that the site plan of Ayodhya, the city of Lord Rama, was similar to the plan found in the great architectural text Manasara. Even in Buddhist literature, there are numerous mentions of individual buildings constructed on the basis of Vaastu. Lord Buddha is said to have delivered discourses on architecture and even told his disciples that supervising the construction of a building was one of their prime duties. There are mentions made of monastries (Viharas) or temples, buildings which are partly residential and partly religious (Ardhayogas), residential storeyed buildings (Prasadas), multi-storeyed buildings (Harmyas) and Guhas or residential buildings for middle class people.
Today, Vaastu Shastra is widely known as a science of direction that aims to enhance your future by making your office and home environment completely positive. In a way, it ensures a happy prosperous life, a bright career or business prospects as well.
Since you can’t alter what’s written in your destiny, consistent hard-work and certain measures that correct the Vaastu of your office, will help you greatly.
Office Vaastu Principles
Keep in mind the principles of design, layout, space arrangement and spatial geometry. Vaastu is a science that deals with construction and architecture. It works by balancing five elements of environment – Water, Fire, Earth, Air, and Space.
Follow the guidelines mentioned below and prosper in life:
* If you are looking for a land or plot for your office, factory or any other commercial structure, go for Shermukhi plots. These plots are broader from front and narrow at the end. Also, try to purchase land close to roads that are highly operational.
* Office building should face North, North-East or North-West direction as it brings good luck and positive energy.
* According to Vaastu Shastra, the main door or entrance of the office building should face East or North direction. Do not place anything that creates obstacle close to or in front of the main entrance.
* Reception of business houses should be located in the East direction or the North-East corner.
* Keep the central part of office building empty.
* Cabin of CEO should be in the South-West direction and he or she should sit facing North. Do not place temple or idols behind the owner’s seat. There should be a concrete wall behind owner’s seat and not any glass structure. His or her desk should be rectangular.
* Staff should work facing the North or East directions.
* To ensure a strong financial support system, free the North-West (NW) zone of the business house from anti-elements and activities. Do not build toilet in this zone as it will hamper the financial support. Since white horses symbolize financial support, they can be placed in the NW zone.
* Accounts department should be in the North and East zone and employees dealing with bank and cash transaction should sit facing East and North direction. All the financial records should be kept in Central North or Southwest of the cabinet.
* Businesses work on payments and new orders. With the help of Vaastu, you can make this process smoother. Do not build pantry or paint the North zone in Red or Pink. Similarly, free the South-East zone from blue colour and use green plants.
* Conference room should be placed in the North-West direction.
* You can place an aquarium with nine goldfish and one blackfish in the North-East direction.
* Desks or workstations should be rectangular or square but not L-shaped. Any irregular shape creates confusion and should be avoided.
* All the electrical equipment should be placed in the South-East direction of the office building.
* If your business is related to manufacturing, it should start from South and then move towards North and West before reaching East.
Now let’s explore individual spaces:
* A professional should be seated along the back of a wall that is in a direction
which is considered the best for them
* The entrance of your office should be at some distance from the main office
* Avoid sharp-edged tables in conferences or meeting rooms
* Always position yourself at a distance from the main door in the conference room
* Opt for high back chairs that signify support from colleagues
* Avoid sitting with your back exposed to the entrance or it will always make you feel vulnerable
* Try not to sit under beams which will amplify your stress levels
* Sit on an office desk that has a regular shape such as a square or a rectangle
* Avoid using a circular or any other irregular shaped table or desk
* Go for wooden desks which are the best options. If you prefer glass top-tables, place it in the West direction
* Placing a crystal on your table promotes monetary flow and keeps the ambience pleasant
* Keep the Southern corner of your office lit up with ample lighting to activate your fame and
to get acknowledgement for your hard work and efforts
* Sit in a position that is North-facing to welcome opportunities.
By following the guidelines of Vaastu Shastra and balancing the five elements of the environment – Water, Fire, Earth, Air and Space, you can enhance your opportunities, ensuring a bright future for your career or business. Go for it!
