Brahmasthan – ‘The Marmasthan’

Vastu Shastra also commonly known as Science of Construction is an ancient doctrine of architecture does mention about Brahmasthan. Brahmasthan can also be termed as the innermost, sanctified and blessed zone of the house. All the directions have their meeting point at the center of the structure and scatter their positive energies in all directions. This positive energy is like life thread for living beings of the occupants of the structure. 

Brahmasthan is an extremely important place for homes, factories and industries. The place which is just surrounding the navel place of Vastu purush, is called Brahmasthan. Brihadsanghita also mentions that the diagonal straight line meets at Brahmasthan. 

The middle place of any structure which is also called the Brahmasthan, is the most quiet, gentle place. It is said to be directly connected to the Universe. It is also known as the heart of the house. It is also best if this portion is open to sky so that premises have a benefit of space element according to vastu shastra. 

The Brahmasthan is the position of the ‘Space or Akash’ element. This should as far as possible be left open to sky. The rest of the four basic elements as per Vastu Shastra are Air, Water, Fire and Earth. The Brahmasthan, the centre of each room, centre of the building, centre of each structure is of paramount importance as the same is one of the most vital features of Vastu, since it is the that point of the area where energies from all the different directions meet and are self–generated into the home.

As per Vastu Shastra Tips Brahmasthan of each and every structure as far as possible be kept open with no walls, beams, heavy weights, or blockages. 

The principles, salient features, all interesting and important facts, and vastu remedies of Brahmasthan do apply to all vacant plots as they are applicable to all structures. The Bramasthan of the plot should as far as possible be kept vacant and free from any construction. In case any construction is undertaken at the centre of plot that blocks the very energy which keeps a living place lively.

It therefore, is evident that Brahmasthan is doubtless an extremely powerful and sanctified zone of all the structures as well as plots. It is as sacred as Ishaan Zone (North-east) and should be kept non-obstructive and tidy in order to have better inflow of energies.

As per Vastu Principles an open courtyard or centre brings all kind of treasures and success to occupants. In ancient times, it was very common sight in all Indian homes and temples to have a courtyard at the centre of house which was open to sky and to the rooms around courtyard. 

In case of industrial units proper care should be taken to ensure that no heavy machineries or goods are placed at the centre of the unit. This may result in to the sub-standard goods being produced and pile up of inventory.

If regular health problems are noticed, the Brahmasthan of the structure should be checked first for defects and steps to be taken for Vastu Dosh Nivaran/remedies. As presence of any pit in the Brahmasthan gives insanity amongst the inmates Vastu Dosh Nivaran should be carried out immediately.

Based on the above discussions above it can be said that Brahmasthan is by all means Marmasthan of the structure. It is also extremely sensitive like the Marmasthan of the human body.
