Vastu has been into existence since the ancient times but with modernisation changes have come about in the perspective of Vastu. For instance the simple but a significant structural member identified as straw by Vedic architects is identified to-day by the high-tech engineering as cable. Straw signifies stretch by tension. Cable also signifies stretch by tension.
Vastu Shastra states that every civil and construction engineer should be aware that the load transfer from the roof to the brick wall is primarily through compression.
Further, the ancient architects were familiar not only with structural engineering but also with the construction technology related to building materials. Such a discovery makes one believe that the modern day Vastu Shastra is somewhat reinventing the wheel that existed in the Vedic period.
As per as the implication of Vastu Shastra in the modern day is concerned it can be said that the use of Vastu in the modern day will result in enhancing the quality material and spiritual quality of life in today's troubled world. As the results of the application of Vastu Sastra spread around our environment, it will remind an individual that the Vedic science and technology are not time related subjects but are eternal.
Finally it can be said that Vastu Shastra in the modern age is not completely different from the one that was used in the ancient era but the way is different and the approach is different but altogether modern day Vastu Shastra used in today's architectural construction is derived from the Vedic sutras.
