IMPORTANCE OF COLOUR IN A VASTU

IMPORTANCE OF COLOUR IN A VASTU

There is an intimate relationship between colour and the creation of a positive environment within the vastu.  White colour represents cleanliness, purity, sacredness and detachment.  The red colour is indicative of adorable purity on the one side and alternatively violence or blood.  The different shades of blue colour radiate happiness and also develop the feeling of intuition.  Yellow colour provides speed, exuberance and an illusory sense of affluence.  Orange colour depicts ideal qualities, valour and a sense of aggression.

The above discussion summarises the effect of various colours on human lives.  Vastushastra attempts to establish harmony with nature and increasing the efficiency by creation of a healthy environment through the use of proper combination of colours.

A proper and pleasant environment contributes to positive mental attitude thereby increasing productivity and creativity.  Sunlight which we receive from sunrise to sunset is made up of seven colours and this enables us to experience the phenomenon of colours.  Scientific analysis reveals that white light is a mixture of seven colours and all these colours are useful for human life.  According to Vastushastra the influence of various colours in the eight directions is as follows:

                East        White

                Northeast           White, Green

                North                    Parrot green, yellowish white

                Northwest          White, Black, Blue, Grey

                West                     Red

                Southwest          Smoky Red

                South                    Red

                Southeast           Mixture of yellow, red or orange

                Centre Region   Yellow

 

Accordingly, the colours for the various rooms and directions in a house can be planned.  The use of different colours in different directions may give an odd appearance.  But by ensuring the symbolic presence of the respective colours in the prescribed directions, positive results can be obtained.  The effective functioning of the seven yogic chakras and the productivity of an individual is also influenced by the respective colours.  When we make a comprehensive study of the seven colours in the sunlight, the seven charkas in a human body and their mutual relationship, it will transpire that the colours have a tremendous influence on human life.
