Vastu Shastra Explained
::: by V. Subhash :::
A plain-English Vástu Śastra building-architecture guide
Vastu Shastra Explained is a plain-English Vástu Śastra building-architecture guide for those who wish to draw their own Vastu-compliant house plans.
Most of those who build a house will do so only once in their lifetime. For this reason, it needs to be done right the first time. Even if you do not believe in traditional sciences like Vastu, you might still want to follow its recommendations just for the peace of mind. For the author, Vastu is a collection of time-tested architectural best-practices that would be too good ignore. This book:
- Explains important precepts of Vastu Shastra.
- Will enable you to develop your initial house plan as per Vastu Shastra.
- Includes sample house plans to explain basic Vastu implementations.
- DOES NOT upsell Vastu as a panacea for all of life's problems, rebrand it as the Indian Feng Shui or offer any fake 'vastu remedies'.

Excerpts PDF With Bonus English Translation Of Vastu Vidya
Because of the book seller's restriction on including public domain content, I am unable to provide the English translation of the Vastu Vidya sections of Matsya Purana in the book that is on sale. However, it is included in this free sample of the book. Feel free to download and print the pages.
This sample is a low-resolution watermarked PDF but it is fully functional. The Vastu Vidya pages are not watermarked but it was scanned from an ancient copy of an ancient book.
Free PDF samples of several other books are listed in my newsletter blogpost. (Do not worry. You do not have to subscribe.)
