Vastu is a form of science. If we go through the vedas we would have a fair understanding of panchmahabhutas which is geography, topography, direction, environment and physical architecture. If we take a closer look any flaw, misbalance or deficiency in any of these will lead to dosha or defects.
To throw a little more light on the reason and magnitude of defects depends on the direction where defects occur and the multiplicity increases. North East (Eshanya) and the South West (Agneya) corners are considered to be the most important locations in vastu. Any gap in the northeast and southwest will cause major defects in Vastu.
A Vastu dosh/defect can be corrected through the changes in rooms, through interiors of the house by changing the locations, by using certain devices. Vastu defects leads to sadness and disharmony if we implement the vastu dosh remedies properly it will bring back happiness and peaceful environment at our homes.
