In the Treta Yuga a very cruel man was born of the drops of Shiva’s sweat. He was very hungry. So he began to make penance to appease Lord Shiva and get a boon from him. Shiva was pleased with his penance and appeared before him. The devotee prayed to Shiva,” Oh Lord! Please permit me to eat away all the three worlds.” Shiva said,” Let it be so.” The devotee’s joy knew no bounds.

He got possession on all the three worlds and first he was ready to eat the terrestrial world (Bhooloka). Devatas were afraid of this great bodied man and approached the creator’ Brahma, Brahma advised the devatas to keep that man in a reversal order That man, being arrested like this approached Brahma and sought his help. Listening to those words, the celestial being said that you lie down here on the ground changing your position once in three months, i.e. from ‘Bhadraspada’ to ‘kartik’ you lie down putting your head in the eastern direction and your feet towards the west.

Whatever side you may turn, you will have to lie down on the left side only. You will be known as ‘VASTU PURUSHA’.

You may trouble and even devour those people who construct the aforesaid buildings and temples etc. in the direction where you lay your head and back and those who lay foundation-stone without worshiping you or without satisfying you with “Homa” and the like. Then the Vastu-Purusha was quite satisfied. Since then the worship of Vastu-Purusha has been in vogue and ithas become compulsory for those who want to construct any kind of building.
