The eight gods ruling the eight quarters or the eight zones of the universe are the ashta dikpalakas. It is said that they are the pillars of vaastu shaastra and invoking their blessings is paramount. Indra, Agni, Yama, Niruti, Varuna, Vayu, Kubera and Isana form the eight dikpalakas who are guardian deities of the sky. According to Vedic scriptures, each direction is assigned to a particular god as the chief guardian for ensuring orderliness of the universe and the protection of its occupants. Vaastu Shastra is based on these eight directions.
Lord Indra: He is regarded as the god of east direction. His mount is a white elephant which is a symbol of royal strength.
Lord Varuna: He rules the west direction. His mount is Makara or crocodile.
Lord Kubera: He is the god of north direction. His mount is nara or a man, but there are references of goat as his vahana.
Lord Yama: The god of death rules the south direction. He sits on a buffalo.
Lord Agni: He rules the south east direction. A ram is regarded as the mount of Lord Agni.
Niruthi: God of southwest direction, his mount is a horse.
Lord Vayu: Sitting on a spotted deer, he rules the northwest direction.
Isana: He rules the northeast direction. Vrishbha (bull) is the seat of Isana.
Ashta dikpala Homa is very powerful for it protects the land or constructions from all eight directions. It appeases the dikpalakas who ensure that no external malefic influence and enemies attack from these directions. It also brings wealth and property and makes certain that peace remains throughout.
Vastu Shastra is an ancient architecture science which is mainly used for designing a building following proper norms. This is a term used in Hindu architecture where it is believed that alignment, directions and designs play a great role in bringing the good energy inside a building. The foundation of this pooja is said to have been done by a mythical sage named Mamuni Mayan. The legend of Vastu Purusha says that once a formless force was blocked by Brahma and other gods, and this is graphically depicted in the Vastu Purusha Mandala which is an indispensable part of Vastu Shastra and constitutes the mathematical and diagrammatic basis for generating design. Purusha refers to energy, power, soul or cosmic man. Mandala is the generic name for any plan or chart which symbolically represents the cosmos.
Vastu Homa or Vastu Shanthi Homam is a suitable one for those who want to avoid harmful influences in a construction. In addition, this yagna provides solutions for overcoming mental disturbances and helps achieve peace of mind. Also, positive energies are emitted and one gets desired results. When trees are chopped and stones are smashed from the premises, certain negative forces are discharged that may disturb the peace and tranquillity of the place causing hitches to the inhabitants. This yagya helps to keep these negative influences under control. Also, it facilitates removal of malefic effects of the planets and thereby creating a peaceful, powerful and healthy environment.
Pradosham rituals are performed to appease Lord Shiva. Krishna paksha is the waning period of 15 moon days from full moon to new moon and the evening of the trayodashi, thirteenth moon day between 4.30pm to 6.00pm is called Pradosham. It appears once in fifteen moon days. Offering prayers during this time frees us from sins and helps us attain moksha. Doing Ashta Dikpala Homa and vastu Homa during this period is considered auspicious and its benefits are multiple.
