It essentially deals with two energy sources - the solar energy flux and the geomagnetic energy flux.

History says that Vishwakarma had first of all given the methods of construction and decoration of buildings. It is known as Vaastu Shastra or the architecture. References to these methods and art are found in the sources of ancient Indian culture such as the Vedas, Purans , Ramayana, Mahabharata and other Sanskrit epics. It is believed that the orientation or direction of a building, according to Vaastu is planned on the basis of the rotational setting of the planets and those buildings that are not planned keeping in mind the orientation and not constructed with suitable building materials as proposed by Vaastu see their decline to ruins much faster than those built otherwise.
