Origin of Vastu Purush

Their are different kinds of belief in the origin of Vaastu Purush. In which there are some complications too. For e.g. according to Raj Vallabh. Long back in a fight between Mahadevji and Monster named Adhank, a drop of Mahadevji's sweat fall on earth and it transformed into a huge built human being that made feared the earth and sky.

He was filled with immense strength. All the Gods and Goddesses complained this to Mahadevji, By the command of Mahadevji all the Gods and Goddesses put all their strength and dropped the huge structure face down on to earth and they stayed their. In this way "Vaastu Purush" was originated. In which the face of Vaastu Purush is facing down and the head is placed in the Ishaan corner. Brahmaji is placed in the center, the legs are aligned in the Netrastya direction, hands and legs joints in the Agni corner and Vayvya corner.Creation of Vaastu PurushIn a normal way to study the creation of Vaastu Purush and the placement of the Gods on it you need to have knowledge of the "Vaastu Pad". To construct any home or any other place and for the blessings of Vaastu Purush you need to get "Padvinyas". "Pad" means the base of a solid construction, which is required in every construction. As much as you increase the area of construction their is a increase in the "Vaastu Pad". In a proper way the calculation of Vaastu says it should be 64 Pads or 81 Pads for a ideal construction. For a construction of city or a temple 64 Pads is considered as an ideal size, for a construction of ideal home 81 Pads is considered as ideal and during the making of the entrance 43 Pad is considered ideal, for construction of Palace or Bunglow 100 Pad is considered ideal, during the construction of Well or lake 196 Pad is considered as the ideal size this is as per the Shilp Shastra.Looking towards the 81 Pads of Vaastu Purush the head is directed in the Ishaan corner and the legs are directed in the Netrastya.
