Threshold & Vastushastra

In Threshold & Vastushastra on 2018-09-12

The threshold is gradually disappearing in the modern household.  A threshold defines the boundary of the vastu and symbolically reminds that one should exercise restraint and adhere to discipline.  Of late, there has been a general decline in the virtues of discipline and human values. Ironically, the present state of the society reveals that we have forgotten the limits of the threshold.

  • A threshold defines the extent of the vastu and prevents the insects from entering the house through the gap between the door and the floor.
  • A threshold should be made of wood so as to facilitate the retention of magnetic energy within the house.
  • It prevents undesirable energies or forces  from entering the house.
  • Square and rectangular shape has great importance in Vastushastra.  The threshold has the effect of completing the fourth side of the door frame and making it rectangular.
  • The threshold  should not be made of marble, granite or plastic  strips.
