Vastu for kitchen is important since kitchen represents the “Fire” element. I am sure you already know that fire, in controlled environment, is beneficial, but if the same – yes very same – fire goes out of hand then it obliterates everything and anything in its way. The above statement holds true for both types of fire – the actual fire and symbolic fire.
Getting confused? Just read on and everything will make sense to you in a moment.
As actual fire transforms uncooked or raw food into edible one, in the same manner, symbolic fire provides heat to your physical body and desires to your spiritual self for everything in life. Imagine, what would happen if symbolic fire within you died? You start to lose hope in life; all the “burning desires” come to end; your body becomes cold. On the other hand, what would happen if the same fire – symbolic one – goes out of control? You start to suffer medically, the “burning desires” will make you mentally sick and you start to lose your position, respect and dignity in society.
