Vastu Purush Mandala having 45 Devtas and Asuras.
Aakash – the Inner Space: The energy field next to Bhrisha in the South-East direction is of blue colour. This is also known as Aakash, and represents the space (Aakash) present between Earth and heaven which grants (allows) life.
Many times when you say, “I am not getting my space”, “I am feeling suffocated”, then, in fact, you talk about this inner space, i.e., Antariksh only. This is the space which allows the process of evolution of mind to take place. The supportive space required at both levels – physical and mental—to allow the power of Bhrisha, is provided by Antariksh only.
For example, a growing plant needs a part of space to grow. You sit inside a car which occupies a particular space. Similarly, if you sit inside a building then the space which is required for erection of that building is considered in the form of a devta – Antariksh. If that space (Antariksh) does not allow, then, this manifestation is not possible.
