In spite of small family there is hardly present happiness. As time progress, we began dismissing out ancient culture and custom. Vaastu rules also are ignored. Surprisingly the south Indian people still follow the Vaastu rules and they spend happy and peaceful life. They are more worldly and economically than the northern Indian people.
The logic as well as its effects is permanent. The main purpose of the Vaastu is to create the life of men happier and trouble free. As the Vaastu is based on the properties of the sun and earth, it is universal. Vastu is equal for all religions, all castes.
If you build a house according to Vaastu guidelines, you may lead a prosperous, happy and healthy life.
