The story behind the Vastu Purusha Mandala

According to Mayamatam, an ancient scripture, Brahma, the creator of the universe, wished to create life on earth. The result of his experiments was a huge cosmic man with a perpetual glow. This heavenly man’s hunger grew out of bounds, which led to him developing so big that he caused a permanent eclipse on earth, blocking the sunlight. 

Brahma, realising that the cosmic man was getting out of hand, asked for the help of the gods of the eight cardinal directions, the Ashta Dikpalakas, to combat the man. It took 45 gods to get a hold of the cosmic man finally. The gods held him down against the surface of the earth with his head facing the northeast and his legs facing the southwest.

As the cosmic being was trapped, he blamed Brahma for his creation. Brahma and the man finally reached a compromise. He would be permanently trapped on the surface of the earth but he would be made immortal and any human who builds a building on earth will have to worship the cosmic man.
