In this hi-tech age of cellular phones and cyberspace, the seemingly superstitious doctrines of Vastu sound ridiculous. It is easy to disbelieve such rules as: Sleep with your head towards South. A person who vehemently opposes such prescriptions may be going home and wondering, 'Well if that is going to make me prosper- why not?' And that is greatest misconception about Vastu.

Vastu does not promise prosperity; it only suggests that one should live in tune with nature; so that one can be healthy; think positively; act wisely & ultimately succeed. There is no substitute for hard work!
