Theory Of 108

The rosary or the mala which is used to count mantras in the Indian subcontinent has 108 beads. This specific number -108- has
been a sacred number in the Indian subcontinent for a very, very long time. This number is explained in many different ways.

The ancient Indians were advanced mathematicians and 108 could well have been the result of a precise mathematical
calculation (eg.1 power 1x2 power 2x3 power 3= 108) which was thought to have a special numerological significance.

*1,0and 8: One stands for God or Truth, zero stands for emptiness or completeness in spiritual practice, and eight stands for
infinity or eternity,

*9 multiplied by 12: Both these number are considered to have spiritual significance in many traditions: nine multiplied by 12
equals 108. Also, one plus eight equal nine and nine times 12 equals 108.

*Astrology: There are 12 constellations and nine are segments called namshas or chandrakalas; nine multiplied by 12 equals
108. Chandra is Moon and kalas are divisions within a whole.

*Chinese: Chinese Buddhists and Taoists use a 108 bead mala. Which is called Su-chu. It is divided into three parts by three
dividing beads, so each division is of 36 beads.

*Dance: There are 108 forms of dance in Indian traditions.

*Gopis of Krishna: In the Vaishnava tradition, there were said to be 108 gopis or milkmaids Krishna.

*Heart Chakra: The chekras are intersections of energy lines, and it is believed that are 108 energy line converging to form the
Heart Chakra, One of them, Sushumna, leads to the Crown Chakra and is said to be the path to self-realization.

*Islam: In Islam, there are 108 names of Allah.

*Jain: In Jainism, 108 is the combined virtues of five categories of holy ones, including 12, 8, 36, 25 and 27 virtues respectively.

*Marmas:Marmas or marmasstatanas are like energy intersections called chakras, the only difference being that fewer energy
lines converge to form them. There are said to 108 marmas in subtle body.

*Meru: This is a larger bead, which is not a part of the 108 beads, and so, it is not tied along with the other beads. It is a guiding
bead, which marks the beginning and end of the mala.

*Numerical scale: The one of 108, and the eight of 108, when added together equal nine, which is the number of the numerical
scale, I.e., one, two, three ten, etc. Where zero is not number.

*Planets and Houses: In astrology, there are 12 houses and nine planets; nine multiplied by 12 equals 108.

*Power of 1, 2 and 3 in math: 1to lst power =1;2 to 2nd power =4 (2x2): 3 to 3rd power =27 (3x3x3); 1x 4 x 27=108,

*Sanskrit alphabet: There are 54 letters in the Sanskrit alphabet. Each alphabet has a masculine and feminine, Shiva and Shakti.
Here too, 54 multiplied by two equal 108.

*Sikh: Sikh uses a mala of 108 knots that are tied in a string of wool, rather than beads as in other religions.

*Smaller divisions: 108 is divided, as in half, third, quarter, or twelfth, so that some malas have 54, 36, 27, or nine beats.

*Sri Yantra: On the Sri Yantra there are marmas where three lines intersect, and there are 54 such intersections. Each
intersection has masculine and feminine. Shiva and shakti qualities. Again, 54 multiplied by and equal 108. Thus, there are 108
points that define the Sri Yantra as well as the human body.

*Stages of the soul: Scholars believe that the atman goes through 108 stages on the journey after death.

*Sun and Earth : The diameter of Sun 108 times that of the Earth.

*Time :Some scholars say that there are 108 feelings, with 36 related to the past: 36 related to the present, and 36 related to
future; 36 multiplied by 3 equals 108.
With Blessings of His Holyness
Baba Neem Karoli Ji Maharaj
This Book is dedicated to My beloved Mother Late Smt. Sudarshan
Singla, a pious lady, who have enriched my life with her love and
affection and to my younger brother Late Sh. Arvind Singla, whose
unfortunate and untimely demise has shown me the path of Vaastu and
other occult sciences.
From the start of civilization man wanted to have a place, where he could not only get shelter from the
forces of the nature, but also a place where he would have peace of mind, harmony and prosperity. With
the passage of time mans aspiration increased and after industrial revolution and the two world wars the
spiritual and ancient knowledge became a thing of past and often being termed as Old Fashioned

Structures of all types and shapes started mushrooming around the world and attention being paid to the
aesthetic aspects. New building materials started coming up, and efforts being made to get the best possible
and effective use of the space. At the same time little or no attention was being paid to follow the
principles of Vaastu Shaastra., resulting in man living in a structure which could protect him from the
forces of a nature and a place which has good exteriors and interiors. But these structures need not become
a good house as they were resulting in pain, ill health, lack of harmony, untimely death of family members,
financial losses etc.

Vaastu Shaastra is a science which has developed with the ages of experience of sages and seers. It is
found in our epics also. The principals of Vaastu Shaastra helps in avoiding these mishaps and result in
better life with peace of mind, good health and prosperity. Vaastu Shaastra is using the five elements of the
nature in a fashion so that we develop friendly relation with the invisible but infinite forces of the nature.

A couplet from the Rig Veda says as follows:- Oh God of Vaastu we are your devotees. Through our
prayer we ask you almighty for making all the members and animals living in the house free from diseases
and also give wealth and prosperity for all.

Now we have become very conscious and are making all efforts in trying to regain and implement our
spiritual and ancient knowledge in our life.

In order to understand Vaastu Shaastra and its effects in our life, several books are available in the market.
In todays life where as on one side we are very busy and having little time, but on the other side our quest
for correct and scientific knowledge has increased dramatically. Through this book an effort has been made
in this direction. The basic objective of this book is to present the principles of Vaastu Shaastra in an
effective and efficient way. For this all the principles and findings of Vaastu Shaastra have been presented
in a tabular from so that it is easy to understand. The tabular format will help the reader in getting a better
and easy understanding of Vaastu Shaastra and simplified enough to apply in their life.

I sincerely believe that by following these simple principles, all the five elements of the nature and all the
nine planets will start working in harmony and make the concrete house into a home, where unconditional
love will nurture itself.

While writing this book, I offer my obesciences to my revered Guru Baba Neem Karoli ji Maharaj and to
my family, I hope this book serves as a medium of blessed life for everyone.

Vaastu or other occult science, somebody only believes in them, only when someone is in a financial or
emotional mess, We too had couple of problems and consulted couple of Vaastu experts and astrologers,
but one can only try to believe that It was a miraculous experience, which we had with Mr. Rajnish R.
Singla, he described the actual financial, physical and emotional status exactly of most of our family
members, just by seeing the maps of our offices and residence, as if he was going through astrological
charts and reading our horoscopes. He is totally different from couple of Vaastu experts whom we had
consulted earlier, We were simply zapped on the detailed/ minutest explanation of the maps and what all
rectifications he guided to us.

One thing which was most amazing that Mr. Singla told us that, there is nothing known as hereditary
diseases, In India, people stay in their paternal homes generation after generation and due to improper
Vaastu the son suffers from the same problem, from which his father or grand father were suffering,
Vaastu should be an integral part of ones lifestyle.

He covered even the smallest details, like wall clocks, on which wall it should be placed and should be of
which colors, which plants should be grown where, whereas a general Vaastu practitioner will guide you
where in you should have your Puja Room, Drawing Room, Guest room or Bed room, a consultant can tell
you where to have your bathroom, but he will not tell you where should the mirrors be placed in the bath
rooms, the slightest of the things effect the Vaastu of your home, hence once should be very careful, he
even guide, where one should keep the show pieces or paintings of different types in the house, so on and
so forth.

I have known Mr. Singla from last 4 years, but came across this spiritual and Vaastu Expert side of him,
just last year, I believe that there is a time for everything and your destiny and karmas decide the path you
take, As you sow, so shall you reap, Destiny directs the Action of the individuals.

The Astrology, Past Karmas and Vaastu all constitute the destiny of an individual, out of this only Vaastu
constitutes 35% which is one such thing, that is in our hand, meaning controllable and one should try
his/her level best to achieve 100% marks in this subject.

Overall He is a true master in Vaastu Shaastra, I strongly recommend all the Builders and Home Makers to
consult him before venturing into any new project.

This Book Vaastu Shaastra - The Science Beyond Science, covers a wide area of knowledge ranging
from Selection of Land, soil testing to Final Mahurta of the Building. The Author Sh. Rajnish R. Singla has
explained in simple language to gain Health, Wealth, Prosperity and overall blissful life.

I personally recommend this book to the readers and wish the author all the best for the maiden endeavor.

Vaastu Shaastra
The Science Beyond Science
Vaastu Shaastra has a long history of over 5000 years. It started when the primeval man wanted safety
from heat, cold, wind, rain etc. Taking the five basic elements into considerations he built a house as
comfortable as possible. As the human mind developed he started studying the impact of environment on
his house as well as on his body. The science of Vaastu Shaastra developed in a logical and simple manner
so that an ordinary person could follow it. The ancient sages and seers took great pains to write the books
Vishwakarma Prakashand Vaastupadvinyas. They are considered as the most ancient books on Vaastu

Our sages and seers devoted their lives in the service and welfare of man. Though they did not live in
houses, this desire for the welfare of mankind prompted them to study scientifically the ideal structure for a
man to live in. Agnipuran, Vayupuran, Skandpuran, Garudpuran, Matsyapuran, Suryapuran etc. are some
of the books which give information about Vaastu Shaastra. The deductions were based on the scientific
method of experiment, observation and inference.

It is observed that Vaastu Shaastra is totally based on sunrays and the invisible effect of these rays. The
different colours of the rays have useful as well as destructive effect depending upon their directions; these
rays also vary from sunrise to sunset. The seven colour spectrum forming the sunrays are different
goddesses of power and are known as Parjanya, Kashyap, Mahendra, Surya, Satya, Bhrush and Nabhas
respectively. Different sages and seers studied extensively, the properties of these rays and named them
Kanchansam, Sphatic-Nirmal, Indranil, Vaidurya, Padmarag, Vajrak and Brahmatej. These seven rays are
known as Sapta Devta (the seven Gods). Therefore, even the day is divided into seven parts. Brahma
Mahurta, Usha kaal, Arun kaal, Prathasanghav kaal, Madhyanha kaal, Apranha kaal, Sayan kaal.

The early morning time, from 3.00 a.m. to 4.30 a.m. is known as Brahma Mahurta; Lord Indra is the main
God of this time. Lord Indra is the king of Gods. He is also the God of truth, destroyer of darkness and
leads to the light of the truth. Therefore this period is considered as the most auspicious period for the
worship of God. During this period the ozone content in the air is large. Ozone gives new strength to
human cells. This period is also known as Amrit Vela, because as per the scientists the Oxygen content in
the air, rises from 21% to 41%, which when inhaled, works like a boon for the human body.

Morning 4.30 a.m. to 6.00 a.m. is Usha kaal. The whole universe is filled with new vigour and vitality. The
animals and the birds start their daily routine in this period. Kashyap is the God of this period.

Morning 6.00 a.m. to 9.00 a.m. is the period when sunrays are spread everywhere. The man and the
animals start their life with new vigour and enthusiasm, Mahendra is the God of this period known as Arun

Morning 9.00 a.m. to 12.00 noon is the period known as Prathasanghav. The speed of work of man
increase in this period. The sun is the chief God of this time.

From 12.00 noon to 3.00 p.m. the period is known as Madhyanha. Satya (Truth) is the God of this period.
During this period sun rays are moving towards the west. These rays are not helpful to that extent for man.

Afternoon 3.00 p.m. to 6.00 p.m. is known as Apranha. The sunrays are tilted towards the west. These rays
have destructive power. Bhrush is the main God of this period.
Evening 6.00 p.m. to 7.30 p.m. is known as Sayan kaal. Nabhas is the God of this period. Men and animals
return home after the days work. The sunlight goes on diminishing and the empire of darkness spreads.

As per Vaastu Shaastra, Vaastu Shatpati that is Vaastu Purush is always in action in all types of
buildings. In Matsyapuran some very interesting stories of Vaastu Purush and his worship are narrated.

In the early ages Lord Mahadev (Shiva) was at war with a devil named Andhak. The war continued for
years. After Mahadev (Shiva) killed Andhak out of the perspiration of Lord Mahadev a great spirit
(Vaastu) originated. The spirit consumed all the blood from the body of Andhak. Still his appetite was not
satisfied. He then under took penance. Lord Shankar (Shiva) was satisfied by his deep penance and offered
him a boon. This spirit then started eating men and animals voraciously. All the mankind, demons and the
Gods were terrified by this. They went to Lord Bramha. Lord Bramha asked them to lay the spirit face
down. 81 Gods together laid down the spirit face down and sat on different parts of the back. When the
spirit begged forgiveness from Lord Bramha. Lord Bramha gave him a boon that After building a house
or any other structure, the people who worship you as Vaastu Devta and give you your share of food as
Balibhog (Part of the sacrifice) you give them all the pleasures and prosperity. However, those who start
living without your prayers and offerings, you can trouble them. This and many other such myths and
fables can be found in different Puranas Probably these stories were included in Puranas to make people
conscious about the subject which would make them build their house as per Vaastu Shaastra.

We also find reference of Vaastu Shaastra in The Ramayan and The Mahabharat. At that time the city of
Ayodhya, temples, water storages and gardens etc. were built as per Vaastu Shaastra. When Lord Rama
built the Setu (bridge) between India and Sri Lanka he took the help and guidance of Nala the son of
Vishwakarma. Nala was a great exponent of Vaastu Shaastra.

We can also find proofs of Vaastu Shaastra in the Mahabharat. The Pandavas built Indraprastha city for the
Yagna. At that time, Maya, an exponent of Vaastu Shaastra, built Maya nagari as per the instructions of
Lord Krishna. A big rectangular tank was built at the center of this city. However, it looked like plain
surface. Duryodhan thought it to be a surface and fell in the tank. Lord Krishna knew that the Kauravas
would win Indraprastha from the Pandavas with foul means. He had, therefore, asked Maya to build a tank
in the middle of the city. As per Vaastu Shaastra, a tank, well or pit in the middle of the plot or structure
leads to its destruction. Hence, Kauravas were ruined totally.

Lord Krishna was omniscient. He asked Vishwakarma to plan and design the city of Dwarka.
Vishwakarma had built all structures following the principles of Vaastu Shaastra. The whole city of
Dwarka lived happily and peacefully. As per the directions of Lord Krishna, Vishwakarma had built
Dwarka with water all around it. Both of them knew that Dwarka would sink and submerge in water after a
specific time. The remains of Dwarka are still found at that place under the sea.

Even in Mohenjo-Daro and Harappa use of Vaastu Shaastra is clearly visible

The place of the 5 elements in Vaastu (Site)
1. Water: North-East is the Jal Sthana or the place of water- if a well or underground water storage
facility (sump) is built here, then the owner of the site is bound to experience happiness and

2. Agni (Fire): The South-East is the Agni Sthana or the place of fire, hence the kitchen should be
constructed here and the fire should be lit facing the East, as fire should always be lit facing the
East even while cooking, performing a yagna or while lighting the lamp for God.

3. Earth: As the South-West is the hardest part it can be compared to the earth. The higher this portion
is in a building, the higher is the fame and fortune of the owner.

4. Wind: The North-West is the Vayu Sthana or the place of the wind. Hence, a door, window or
ventilator is to be constructed in the West in North-West, without obstruction and the owner of such
building experiences happiness, improvement in business and good friends.

5. The Sky: The sky corresponds to the middle of the building is the Brahma Sthana. It is very good if
this place is built open to the sky without any ups and downs in the middle of the Building (This
type of building might not be affordable to everyone, hence schools, hospitals, Government
buildings, Industries, apartment and big site owners can be built this way). Owners of small sites
may not find this idea feasible, hence they are advised to locate the center of the building and build
it flat without ups and downs and nothing should be built here. Care should be taken, not to place
any heavy objects here.

The Properties of the eight directions

1. East: The East which is Pitru sthaan should have more open space and should be low and should
not be covered at any cost and it done so, results in the lessening of male progeny and it becomes a
house without a male child.

2. West: This place represents fame, victory and development. The West must be higher and a very
little space must be left in the western side.

3. North: The North which is the Maathrusthaan should have more open space owing to which the
female progeny is done good. Thus leaving of space is good for the ladies of the house and if this
region is covered it has negative effects on the ladies.

4. South: This place represents money, crops, bliss and peace. The South must be higher and a very
little space must be left in the South.

5. South-East: This place represents health, It should be made the cooking place and this corner
should not be closed.

6. North-West: This place represents business, mind and friendship. This corner should not be
covered and it the North-West is covered it signifies business losses, enmity and mental tension.

7. South-West: This place represents character and longevity. In the South-West if very less space
is left here, it signifies virtues, chastity, longevity and wealth, if the South-West is low and more
space is left here it results in exactly the opposite of the ones mentioned above.

8. North-East: This place represents owner, children, prosperity and health. It the North-East if
low and if more space is left here it results in good health, wealth gain and bright future for
progeny. If the North-East is higher or closed it results in lowered male progeny and brings in

2. In the middle of the plot (Brahma Sthaan), dig a cubical pit of size 2ft. X 2ft. X 2ft. then refill the pit
with exactly the same mud, which had been dug out,
In case the Pit is left partially empty, then it should not be purchased and immediately abandoned,
this plot will bring misery and mental agony.
In case the pit fills up in accordance with the rest of the land, then the land is ordinary.
In case the pit completely fills up and there is still mud left over then this plot is very auspicious
and will enhance wealth and prosperity.
3. In the middle of the plot (Brahma Sthaan), dig a cubical pit of size 1.50ft. X 1.50ft. X 1.50ft. then fill
the pit with water and wait for three minutes
In case the water level goes down by one foot or more then the plot is inferior, and should not be
purchased and immediately abandoned, this plot will bring misery and mental agony.
In case the water level goes down by 6 Inches to 9 Inches then the plot is of medium quality
In case the water level remains unchanged or goes down by less than 6 Inches then the plot is of
superior quality and is very auspicious.

Laying the foundation stone

Construction work of any building is to be started always only after Vaastu pujan (worship of Vaastu) and
shilanyaas (laying of foundation) ceremony and graha shanti.

In the opinion of some scholars for this purpose excavation is to be started in the following directions in
different months as follows.

Months Direction
Bhadrapad East
Margshirsha, Pausha, Magha South
Palghun West
Jyeshtha North

The view of another scholar is that excavation should always be done only in north-east. The logic behind
this principle is that north-east of the plot should be the lowest in level always.

Digging of well/bore-well in different directions

vegetarian food is better for human health and physical growth. Vegetarian food provides high quality
proteins, nutritive elements like vitamins and minerals, and also prevents from several diseases including
heart attack and cancer.
Vegetarian food- more nutritious.

Vegetarian food provides, besides higher quality of proteins, fibrous contents and minerals which are
almost non existent in meat and which play an important role in warding off digestive disorders and
various other diseases. Vitamins A,B,C,E,& K are available in plenty in green vegetable, carrots, Citrus
fruits, Tomatoes, Radish, Guava, Ghee, Butter, etc.

Vegetarian Food- Prevents Heart Diseases and Cancer, it is well known that bacteria multiply quickly in
blood. Since blood cannot be totally separated from flesh, the germs and virus present in the meat enter the
body of meat eaters, who may also get infected.

Studies conducted in America, Japan, Germany, U.K and various other countries have revealed that
vegetarian not only remain healthy and diseases immune but also have greater stamina, longer life span and
sharper intellects.

Nobel Prize winners, Dr. Michael, S. Brown and Dr. Joseph, L. Goldstein of America have proved that
consumption of meat and eggs, Increases Cholesterol in the blood- stream, causing problems related to
heart, kidneys and stones etc. Research has shown that eating meat causes cancer, Kidney and intestinal
diseases, Epilepsy , Heart Trouble, Blood pressure, Ulcerative colitis, Appendicitis, Carcinoma of colon &
Rectum, Atherosclerosis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Gout and other types of arthritis, Destruction of immune
system of the body, Skin diseases, Eczema, Pimples, Constipation, Migraine, Menstrual disorders, etc.

Thus, vegetarian food prevents several types of diseases and promotes life longevity whereas non-
vegetarian food increases the risk of infecting diseases and cuts short the life.
