Vastu Shastra are the textual part of Vastu Vidya - the broader knowledge about architecture and design theories from ancient India. Rather, these ideas and concepts are models for the organisation of space and form within a building or collection of buildings, based on their functions in relation to each other, their usage and the overall fabric of the Vastu. The underlying root is vas "to dwell, live, stay, reside". These contain Vastu-Vidya literally, knowledge of dwelling.
