Details of Sri Vastu Purusha idol :- Metal - Panchdhatu Finish - Polished Weight - 1026 grams( 1.026 KGS) Height - 5.4 inches Length - 4.0 inches Purpose - Vastu correction and harmony through Vastu Purusha Story of Vastu Purush as per Hindu text 'Mayamatam' According to the ancient Indian text “Mayamatam” Brahma- the creator of universe experimented with a new creature. He created a large cosmic man, who grew rapidly larger and larger and started to devour everything that came in his way, in order to satisfy his amaranthine hunger. He became unmanageably so big that his shadow fell on earth just like earth was to be under a permanent eclipse. All the deities were in utter dilemma seeing the destruction by this creature. So all gathered to plead Lord Brahma to present them a solution for this. Brahma after realizing his mistake summoned the Astha Dikapalakas – the Gods of the eight cardinal directions. All came together and subjugated the monster and held it flat against the earth while Brahma jumped on its middle. Unable to bear the weight of all the deities he prayed Lord Brahma for mercy. Being pleased by his prayer, Lord Brahma bestowed a boon on him that “while constructing any dwelling units, temples, parks, and water bodies’ etc. people shall worship you, and people who won’t, they shall suffer poverty, obstruction in every activity they do Story of Vastu Purusha as per Matsya Purana According to the story inscribed in Matsya Purana there was a demon named ANDHAKA who was killed by Lord Shiva after a long fight between them. As the fight prolonged for a long time, lord Shiva was very tired and was sweating copiously. A man was born out of the drops of Shiva’s sweat that fell on the ground. He was very cruel and was very hungry. So he decided to make forfeit with the god to appease him so that he can get a boon from him. Lord Shiva was very much pleased by him and offered him the boon of his choice. The devotee demanded for the permission to eat up all the three worlds. Shiva being bound by his promise offered him the boon. All the deities and rakshshas were terrified due to this and decided to hold down the devotee to the earth so as to protect the universe from destruction. The devotee being overpowered like this requested all the gods to abide him from such pain. Being pleased by his prayers lord Brahma bestowed him a boon that he would be worshipped by everyone when any plots or construction work is to be initiated. Since then the worship of Vastu-Purusha has been in vogue and it has become compulsory for those who want to construct any kind of building.
