Understanding your Environment

We need to understand how nature works. Considering the basic elements that are present in our environment and using them to our advantages without harming the nature would make a big difference to how we live.
The major and the most expensive overhead in our lives is our home. When designing it an accurate site analysis must be performed so we can take advantage of the local climate conditions.
Ancient principles of Feng Shui and Vastu Shastra have addressed these principles in their own ways.

 

Feng Shui

Feng Shui is all about the relationships between us and the environment. It has been practiced for years by the Chinese to enhance our surroundings for success in life.
Feng Shui is all about how we humans interact with their environments. It empowers us to stimulate naturally forming energies to achieve improvements in our lives. This is accomplished by designing and positioning your surroundings according to the natural energy flow. Feng Shui provides a way of bringing balance, comfort, and harmony into your environment in a manner that is difficult to achieve by any other means.

 

Vastu Shastra

Vastu is the knowledge of the compass readings that combine all five elements of our nature and balancing them with us. The world constitutes of five elements. These are Earth, Water, Air, Fire and Space.
The orientation of a building is not only about saving energy but also designing it for comfortable living, good health and prosperity for the occupiers and the owners. The buildings construction should meet its purpose and be built with local building materials. This would improve the conditions of the occupants and also increase the lifespan of the building.
