'Vas' means 'to dwell' or 'to occupy'. Vasthu means 'dwelling place.' Vasthu Shastra is the set of guidelines prescribed by the Rishis, so called learned men of ancient India for planning and constructing our dwelling places which range from our homes, cities, states, countries and eventually extend to our planet and the universe!

An introduction to Vastu Shastra
The energy force that exists around us in our environment also exists within us. The strength of our health, our level of motivation, our ability to express ourselves, be creative, open our hearts, stimulate our intellect, generate money, attract relationships are all influenced by this force.
By erecting buildings and homes without consciousness or awareness of how the 'interiors' and 'exteriors' affects the energy balance (of the land), we inadvertently throw off the natural energy field of the land. This imbalance subsequently affects our body's internal energy fields. Everything around us is alive within an energy field. It is important to understand that a living environment intertwines with life in a significant way.
The theory of Vastu is permanent and not bound by any time barrier. Vastu guidelines are useful to individuals and the society. It takes care of the health and happiness of the individual, without compromising on the needs of the society and the overall environment.
Thousands of years ago, it was believed that an invisible energy force from the Earth's center was responsible for the way certain locations thrived more than others and thus were more inhabitable. This powerful life force that exists within all things is the single most important factor influencing our lives for better or for worse
The Earth's magnetic field, the solar energy and cosmic rays are the fundamentals of Vastu Shastra. In the days of ancient India, entire cities were constructed to harness the principles of this science. This made sure that Local Energy Fields of the city were well balanced. Thus, people had personal bio-energy systems which were structured towards a greater level of inner harmony and order.
