The system of five elements found in India is the Pancha Mahabhuta, or “Five Great Elements”. They are kshiti or bhūmi (earth), ap or jala (water), tejas or agni (fire), marut or pavan (air or wind), vyom; or shunya or akash.

 

All of creation, including the human body, is made up of these five essential elements and upon death, the human body dissolves into these five elements of nature, thereby balancing the cycle of nature.

Vastu shastra is a complete Shastra. Health of people living in Vastu is also affected by it. The Panch Mahabhuta have effect on heart, mind, body and their functioning. That’s why it is important to build the house as per Vastu.

Just like Sun rays and oxygen and good soil is required for the proper health and growth of plant, same way for Human body needs proper impact of Panch mahabhuta. If any of them is not received in proper way then the imbalance is created in body. According to Vastu shastra, Ishanya direction has pitta, Nairutya direction has kaf and Vayavya has Vaat and agneya has Agni tatva qualities and impacted accordingly.
