Building Architecture of Sthapatya Veda
by Dr. V. Ganapati Sthapati
We're delighted to announce that we have Sthapati's new book about Sthapatya Veda. Rather than
being another publishing of the difficult to read Sthapatya Veda texts, this book is a collection of talks delivered at
seminars, symposia and workshops from 1994 to 2000.
The book is both a scholarly exposition of the philosophical principles of Sthapatya Veda and a practical presentation of the rhythm and creation of rhythm bound forms which give rise to a variety of structures.
Here's an excerpt from the preface.
"Vaastu Shastra has nowadays come to be related to the mere design principle of located the bedroom and kitchen inside a built space and only very few think beyond this point as to what is that which brings in a spritually alluring ambience when the built space or oriented according to Vaastu. Now comes the question of the attributes of the Space that surrounds us. Is there any relations between our inner space and the space surrounding us? If so, what is that? And how is the resonance between our inner space andbuilt space effected by the Vaastu science? What is that which we are able to experience when we are inside a temple in front of the sanctum-sanctorum? Can we say that it is the resonance in vibration of our inner self and that of the built space of the sanctum, which in popular terms is called "Bhakti?" Quite intriguing isn't it?"
