In Vedic Architecture, Vaastu Purush is present in each and every plot whether it is big or small. He has a fixed and peculiar body. His head remains hanging down and his body is spread all over the length and breadth of the ground. The platform on which the building stands that is considered seat of the Vastu Pursha. The second floor of the building is considered chest of the vastu Pursha. The end part of the floor is considered as part of the shoulders. The lower part of the tomb of the building is considered as neck of the pursha and tomb finally as head.

We can divide the Vastu Pursha as per the five elements in the universe as under:-

1. Mind (tomb) is considered as sky.

2. Shoulders (Sun Rays) are considered as fire.

3. Navel (Bed room etc.) is said to place of air.

4. Knee (Plinth of the building) is considered as earth element.

5. Leg (taps/WC/water tank etc.) is considered the place of the water element.

There is an interesting story in the MATSYA PURAN in which the birth of Vaastu Purusha is narrated. By reading that story one knows why the worship of the Vaastu Purusha is necessary before beginning construction of any building.
