FAQ.


Where does Kaleshwara Vaastu come from?

Sri Kaleshwar learnt from the top Vaastu masters in India. He researched and explored this science whilst creating a huge spiritual center from scratch, following and testing the Vaastu rules in the build process.

Based on this knowledge and experience Kaleshwar prepared a core of Vaastu teachings which focus on the key needs of modern times – health, prosperity and spiritual growth. In his consultations throughout the world Kaleshwar helped thousands of people with this knowledge in order to create a home or work environment which powerfully supports them in each area of their life.


What should I look for when choosing a consultant?

Being a Vaastu consultant means to partially assume responsibility for the life and karma of the clients. Every Vaastu consultation is accompanied with great responsibility, because it’s about the quality of life of the clients. If only a small detail is overlooked or mistaken, this can have severe consequences for the life of the inhabitants.

Similarly to an alternative practitioner or doctor, it takes training and experience over several years for a Vaastu consultant to be able to consult in a competent way. If you meet somebody (in person or on the internet) presenting themselves as a Vaastu consultant, ask them first about their training. It could be helpful to ask about their teacher - is their teacher really a Vaastu master? How long have they learned directly from their teacher and practised under their supervision? Ask, if they have been authorised by their teacher to consult independently. This can help to gain a greater understanding of their level of qualification for the role of Vaastu consultant.

In life, Sri Kaleshwar authorised only a very small number of students to act as consultants. He trained these students personally over several years and they assisted him worldwide with his consultations. Sri Kaleshwar put a very big emphasis on maintaining the knowledge systems taught by him in their purity and not to mix them with other traditions or knowledge systems.

Respecting these wishes, Kaleshwar Vaastu Europe currently offer consultations only through Tobias Gonschorek, Kaleshwara Vaastu Senior Consultant. Tobias was personally trained by Sri Kaleshwar for over ten years, assisted him worldwide with his consultations and was authorised personally by Sri Kaleshwar to give consultations.

Further consultants are in training. If you are interested in giving Vaastu consultations, please contact us under office@kaleshwaravaastu.eu.


What is the consultation procedure?

Firstly, we will require plans of the house and maps of the surrounding area as well as some pictures of the property. Next, we will schedule an appointment with Tobias and an assistant at your property. Following the on-site visit a detailed analysis will be made. Once complete, Tobias will arrange to discuss the results and any potential changes that could be made over time. In the follow-up consultations you will receive a written summary of the analysis including any recommended changes.


Are there alternatives to the on-site consultation?

Yes, working with the maps, plans and pictures of the property a remote analysis can be offered. This is a good option to gain a first impression. In important decisions like relocating, purchasing a property, etc., we recommend the on-site consultation prior to any large investments.


Does Vaastu have an effect everywhere?

Yes, Vaastu has the same effect everywhere in the world. The main parameters are the sun and the elements – both influence the entire globe.


Do I have to believe in Vaastu for it to work?

No. Vaastu is a science based on the interaction of the sun and the elements. Vaastu describes certain cosmic rules which have an effect whether you believe in it or not – similar to gravity, which does not need you to believe in it to make the glass break when it falls.


Do I have to use special building or construction materials?

We recommend ethically produced and sourced, sustainable materials for building, construction and energy generation. This is not part of the Vaastu teachings, but a recommendation as part of a respect for our planet and all on it.


Is it possible to balance Vaastu-defects through certain meditation techniques?

A person who meditates and works to live in a harmonious and balanced way is more likely to be able to tolerate sub-optimal Vaastu than a person who does not. However, the Vaastu defects themselves are not balanced by this.


Are there any corrective measures for serious Vaastu defects – like special herbs – so that I don’t have to move out?

There are no corrective measures for serious Vaastu defects. It is possible to lift the energy through certain measures (for example, Yantras), to make the consequences more tolerable. It is comparable to a smoker who takes vitamin pills – the health risk through smoking is not totally removed by additional vitamins.

The nature of this work aims to support people over the long-term in all areas of their lives and we take this responsibility very seriously. In the instance of serious Vaastu defects in a property, if the property cannot be fixed with construction changes, our recommendation will always be to move to more supportive Vaastu in the medium-term.


Is Vaastu something like Feng Shui?

Vaastu is the mother of Feng Shui. The Vaastu Shastra contains ancient, authentic knowledge of a life in harmony with cosmic laws. Over time, Vaastu teachings travelled across to China where they were influenced by local knowledge, altered and became the system of Feng Shui which differs from many points on the Vaastu teachings.


Does Vaastu fit with geomancy or sacred geometry?

Sri Kaleshwar did not teach about any correlation between geomancy or sacred geometry and Vaastu. There is nothing wrong with consulting a geomantist or researching sacred geometry and striving for good Vaastu at the same time.


How does Vaastu correlate with astrology?

Western and Vedic (Jyotish) astrology examine planetary constellations at the time of birth and study their influence on a person, in order to understand their karma, personality traits and many aspects of their life. From the Vaastu point of view there is nothing against seeking an astrologer’s advice to understand certain aspects of your soul plan and life on a deeper level. Astrology describes and is able to bring greater understanding or deeper realization to a person’s life – but it does not provide specific practical changes to solve Vaastu defects.

Vaastu laws are shown - through historical case histories - to have an effect and this cannot be fixed or changed through astrological consultation.


Do colours play a role in Kaleshwara Vaastu?

Colours do not resolve Vaastu imbalances.


What does Sri Kaleshwar mean by Soul-Vaastu?

Vaastu and all other teachings from Sri Kaleshwar are based on the fundamental principles of the five elements. Their powers affect us and our environment. Whenever Sri Kaleshwar talks about “Soul-Vaastu”, he is referring to the influence of the element-energies in us. He taught comprehensive meditation techniques for how to balance those element-energies in ourselves and allow them to flow through our lives in a positive way. If we can live and work in a harmonious Vaastu environment, and work to resolve our inner element imbalances, our soul vaastu will be in harmony with the inner and outer five elements.

Both disciplines – Vaastu as well as the Element Mantra Meditations (see www.kaleshwar.de) – provide the knowledge of how to balance our energy and gain success in our life. Both have the power to purify karma and to transform a life.


It’s better to live in a hut under a tree than to live in bad Vaastu.
