# Vastu reva Vaastu (E=mc2)

We have seen earlier that the universe in its un-manifest state is filled with luminescent cuboids and there was a trigger in the form of Pranava which started the absolute time and gave forth visual forms and aural forms. This process of evolution is depicted very nicely in the following diagram…

The square (in 2D) which is an 8×8 energy grid became a 9×9 energy grid which is manifest / gross. The transition forms were an octagon and a circle. Aintiram suggests how this transition takes place. Present physics accepts that a pulse and a sine wave can be created from each other and this happens because of simple addition of harmonic frequencies. The primordial pulsation initiates a rotational force and this rotational force as it gains momentum converts the square into a circle and if you notice that the octagon is just an in between state between a square and a circle.

We see confirmation of the details of this manifestation process in Chapter 9, verse 8 of the Bhagavad Gita where Lord Krishna describes His manifestation process to Arjuna, “prakritim svaam avastabhya visrijaami punah punah”, which means “Curving back onto myself, I create again and again…”

What it suggests is that the essential shape of every gross form in its natural state is a circle (in 2D) and a sphere in (3D). This is the reason we find every planetary body is almost spherical in shape and this is also the reason as to why the ripples in a water body when we throw a stone in the water are in circles. Be it the center of a tornado or the shape of a hurricane or a tsunami it always a circular force. The supreme secret in martial arts is that the Chi moves in a circular fashion and hence Tai Chi is the most deadly form of martial arts. Lord Vishnu has Chakra as his weapon to suggest not only light but also the rotational force.

The process of manifestation is captured in these 2 pictures at all the significant stages. If you notice that a single dot becomes multiple dots, then a line, then a pulse and then goes on to becoming a 8×8 energy grid and then to a 9×9 energy grid. 8×8 is un‐manifest and 9×9 is manifest. These aspects are very well captured as sutras in the book Aintiram and Pranava Vedam.

• Subtle Energy becomes gross universe and the fundamental 5 elements are created in the process.
• It is said that 1/10th of the space becomes Air, 1/10th of air becomes Fire, 1/10th Fire becomes Water and 1/10th of Water becomes Earth.
• So we can conclude that we are living in a Space delineated world.

• Vastureva Vaastu – Vastu which is unmanifest and subtle becomes Vaastu which is manifest and gross.
• If we assume that Paramaanu is God particle and hence it is divine, then everything in this world is divine. See the oneness in all and see “All in one”.
• All beings in the universe are divine. There is nothing without that divine energy or particle – however we call it. This is Universal, Open source, All Compassing and the highest state of Consciousness.

To summarize…

• We all note that Subtle has become Gross. Hence conceptually Gross = Subtle or both are proportionate.
• We all note that Space has become Earth. Hence conceptually Space = Earth or both are proportionate.
• We all note that 8 have become 9. Hence conceptually 8 =9 or both are proportionate.
•  We all note that ENERGY has become MATTER. Hence conceptually ENERGY = MATTER or both are proportionate. This is represented by E = mc2 by our great scientist Einstein. While we did not have this specific formula, the concept and the associated texts were very much with us for ages.

Now let’s try to answer this question. When you throw a stone in water / pond the ripples that form take the shape of a circle (in 2D) / sphere (in 3D). Can you guess what the shape of the ripple would be if you throw the same stone in space? You would have probably guessed the answer. The ripples in space should be and would be in square /cube in shape.

# Science of Manifestation – Letter, Light and Sound

———————————————————————————–

By Michael Borden
posted by Ganesh

In our earlier articles on manifestation process called Vastureva Vaastu which gives rise to a set of principles and a mathematical order. The application of those principles to poetry, dance, music, sculpture and architecture gives rise to vibrating living forms. These fundamental principles help us better to understand the relation between every letter or word with corresponding light and sound…

The whole of cosmic structure is effected and maintained by innumerable streams of manifestation. These streams are subsumed under two categories:

• Cosmic flux of sound called sabhda prapanca and
• Cosmic flux of light modified into worldly objects called artha prapanca.

Both realms of sound and light are well balanced by the rhythmic creative order of the Divine. The beauty of the Divine order could be seen in the symmetrical, balanced and simultaneous existence of both the subjective world (sabda prapanca) and the objective world (artha prapanca). Both quality wise and quantity wise, this balance, symmetry and simultaneity are maintained. For example, if there emerge 100 forms on the subjective side, simultaneously and correspondingly there emerge 100 forms on the objective side. Only on this account, the science of grammar of language maintains that all the words are denotative of their corresponding referents/objects. There is no empty word bereft of referent-significance and there is no object with out being characterized by relevant sound-significance. Sabda prapanca and Artha prapanca are always interdependent.

Mamuni Mayan, having impeccably known the subtle principles of the science of manifestation, sets forth this cosmic balance maintained between sound-forms and light-forms. In Aintiram, the Key-work of Mayan, one of the Sutras reads: “Oli-Oli vadivaay ongum elutte.” Peripherally this means: “Letter is ever rising and functioning in the form of both light and sound.” But apart from this peripheral meaning, we could observe the multiple dimensions of meaning as radiating from the sutra. The main source of such radiation of multiple meanings is the term ‘eluttu’.

‘Eluttu’ is derived from the word ‘elu’ meaning ‘the creative urge’, ‘excited to manifest’, ‘operative stir’. As such, the different meanings of the term ‘eluttu’ as conceived by Mayan are – letter/phoneme, pranava – the primal letter, the inexhaustible cosmic stuff, the imperishable existence (akshara), square mandala, sculptured object and so forth.

It is generally understood that letter or phoneme (defined in the dictionary as: Any of the minimal units of speech sound in a language that can distinguish one word from another.) is concerned with sound only. Sound and light are inseparable and as such each letter is charged with sound energy and light energy. For example, ‘a’ is associated not only with its articulated sound but also with its own luminous form characterized by color, emerging factor and relevant function. The Vatulagama states (2:35):

“‘a’ is of the nature of all divinities; it is red; it is capable of bringing all the existents into its fold.”

This means that ‘a’ is inseparably associated with multi-divine factors, red color and the power of unfolding or enfolding. The luminous form ‘a’ itself is constituted by four energies, as the Paushkaragama puts it (8:13):

“On the top of ‘a’ is Paudri; on its face is Vama; on its sides exists Ambika. Jyeshta Sakti is in the middle, like a staff.”

This is how the actual subtle form of ‘a’ appears. Similarly, all other letters from ‘a’, ‘i’, etc, have their own subtle forms constituted by many other saktis. Since all the letters are charged with and energized by different potencies, they function as the creative and regulating powers of the universe. They are not inert letters. Actually there is no such letter as marred with inertness.

Every word or letter is derived from the Divine-I-Consciousness, which is with constant creative urge expressed by its ever-going ‘spanda’ or ‘throb’. This consciousness is called ‘the Supreme Verbum (paraa vaak).

The one to one correspondence between sound and light is maintained at all levels. If there rises one shoot of sound from the Supreme Verbum, simultaneously there arises a shoot of light. Sound forms and light forms are the simultaneous manifestation from the primal source of creation. The energy of the Supreme Verbum flows into various letters from ‘a’ to ‘ksa’, which as conscious forms of energy brings about the manifestation

# Fabric of the Universe…

———————————————————————————–
By Dr. Jessie Mercay
posted by Ganesh

Hope you have learned a lot on Vastu Science & Vaastu Technology and more than that about life, creation and manifestation from the Source through the book “Fabric of The Universe: The Origins, Implications, and Applications of Vastu Science” by Jessie J. Mercay. It reveals and illuminates the mechanisms of creation from intangible Absolute Space through the weaving of the fabric of creation to the emergence of the material world.

Once again my sincere thanks to Dr. Jessie J. Mercay for allowing me to share this divine wisdom with all. It will be my final post from this book which is also an excellent summary of what we have learned through these days…

The word Brahman as used in this text is both scientific and spiritual. It is an ancient name for the Quantum field – the source of all life.

This book answers our fundamental questions about that source of life. How does unmanifest, potential energy become manifest, material form? How do the buildings we live and work in influence our emotional & physical health and spiritual & material prosperity?

“It is the Inner space that becomes the Primal source and source of creation. It becomes the conscious form. It is the creative urge; it is consciousness itself; it reveals the creative way and process; it illuminates, shedding light everywhere; it effects the completion and fulfillment. Observe the fundamental order of inner space.” (Dr. V. Ganapati Sthapati, Who Created God, p 35­36, quoting Brahmarishi Mayan)

The fundamental crux of Vastu Science and Vaastu Science and Technology is that Mayan, an ancient architect and Rishi perceived that there is one force, one fundamental First Principle from which all life emerges, and in which all life resides and ultimately returns to its Primal state of pure energy. He named this principle Brahmam. He saw that Brahmam, (Absolute Space, Consciousness, Potential Energy) by its own initiative, goes through a specific process to transform and manifest itself as the material world and its objects, Kinetic Energy. Mayan perceived that process was accomplished through a mathematical order and that order could be replicated by humans to unfold specific qualities of Brahmam that would vibrate in a form that brought health, happiness and spiritual bliss to those who partook in that form. That form could be dance, poetry, music, sculpture, or architecture. Not shown but implied is the 8×8 grid behind the octagon and circle. Octagon and circle are simply transformations of the 8×8 grid.

Unmanifest Absolute Space – Consciousness – Brahmam transforms itself into manifest Consciousness – Brahmam in forms such as trees, rocks, people etc.

These three “gunas” or qualities are examples of the intermediary forms of Brahmam as it transforms itself from unmanifest to manifest. They are both forms and frequencies aroused within consciousness as it moves within itself to contain itself in material form. (These forms of Brahmam or First Principle are discussed in-depth in The Science of Mamuni Mayan’s Vaastu Temple Architecture: Savoring Your Own Beauty, by Dr. Jessie Mercay)

The universal laws and building codes of authentic Vaastu Shastra (Mayonic Science) reveal, in profound detail, how to create built space using the precise mathematical formulas, inherent in all creative activities, which take place in nature. A Vaastu structure is a vibrant, self-contained living organism, which serves to enhance positive qualities of life for its inhabitants. Through many readings and deep study, if you choose this path of Mayonic Science and Technology, you will ultimately learn that health, wellbeing and spiritual bliss can be found right at your own.

Ending with the Mayan’s quote in Surya Siddhanta…                                        “Salutations to Brahman, who is beyond speech and thought, who is with manifest form, who is free from attributes, who is the very nature of qualities, who is manifest as the basic support of all the worlds.”

# The Big Thaw and the dispersion of humanity – 2

———————————————————————————–
By Dr. Jessie Mercay
posted by Ganesh

The map to given below is a close up of what Kumari Continent might have looked like before the global warming. The grey lines are what is now the shoreline of Indonesia, Philippines and the countries that currently exist as island continents and the Asian continent and countries in the ocean. It is estimated that this landmass that united what is today Western Indonesia and the Philippines with mainland South East Asia, China, and Australia was over 1.7 million square kilometers in size.

This enormous land mass had a large inland fresh water sea and apparently several smaller ones that might have supported a human population of millions. Kumaria was a 16 continent that existed for well over 30,000 years. This fact is substantiated by the changes in the ocean depths that remained low during that time – which, since then has risen 400 feet. The big thaw and the rapidly rising sea levels reduced Kumaria from 1.7 million square kilometers to less than 1 million square kilometers and increased coastlines more than threefold. The interior of Kumaria and the coastal areas where the heaviest concentrations of human population were located simply vanished beneath the sea. Traces of these ancient civilizations are being found off the coast of India, Japan, and other areas around the world.

The idea that there was an advanced ice age civilization is well founded. One clear example of such a civilization existed in the period of 35,000 to 12,000 years ago is found in Fukui Cave of Northern Kyushu Island, the south-western island of Japan, in the form of Jomon pottery containers. These (according to have been dated as slightly later than 12,750 +/- 500 years old, and therefore coinciding with the end of the advancing ice sheets and the increased global warming about 11,600 years ago (Joseph B. Lambert, Traces of the Past, 1997). The Jomon pottery most likely was taken to Fukui Cave of Kyushu by Jomon people of the ice age civilization when they fled the flooding of the surrounding lowlands during the worldwide deluge caused by
melting icecaps and related monsoons around 11,600 – 12,000 years ago.

These pottery containers were closed containers in which vegetables and fish could be steamed. This concept of steaming food is a relatively advanced concept as are the pottery containers.

Many stories of a lost continent and a lost civilization can be found in the folklore and writings of the ancient people. In Timaeus and Critias, Plato wrote the story of Atlantis a lost civilization that sank beneath the oceans. Ancient legends around the world tell of a great flood that swept the world thousands of years ago. Modern science has shown through the analysis of the earth’s ice caps and ocean levels that the earth experienced a great flood of cataclysmic proportions during 11,000 – 10,000 BC.

Current archaeological theories state that before 10,000 BC no early human civilizations developed agriculture or built great empires. Modern archaeology further states that during the Paleolithic age humans were hunters and gathers that lived a subsistence level comparable to the Neanderthal man.

Ancient literature of Tamil Nadu states differently. Contrary to general thought, according to these texts, a highly developed civilization existed during the ice age periods in the equatorial belt on Kumari Continent and in other places around the globe. The existence of music and musical instruments is a sign of a somewhat advanced culture. In China, the Institute of Cultural Relics and Archaeology of Henan Province, Zhengzhou, Henan, China holds a number of ancient flutes carbon dated to be over 9000 years old. These flutes are tuned very closely to modern pitch and have been exactly replicated to playable instruments.

In the Indus Valley numerous sophisticated carpenters tools were found as well as advanced indoor water systems and architectural forms. These date as far back as 9000 B.C. The civilizations of that day were not as primitive in some parts of the world as previously thought. As mentioned earlier, ancient Tamil texts say that there was a great migration from Kumari Continent far and wide around the globe between 10000 and 11000 B.C. due to its being engulfed by the rising oceans. Certainly the sophistication of that society provided the means for such a mass migration. One of the individuals who migrated to the Indian mainland was an enlightened sage named Brahmarishi Mayan. It is this Rishi who cognized the Science and Art that is the subject of this book.

# The Big Thaw and the dispersion of humanity – 1

———————————————————————————–
By Dr. Jessie Mercay
posted by Ganesh

In 15,000 BC the earth was a cold planet – an Ice making machine. The planet was in its fifth ice age. The glacial maximum (coldest period with maximum icecaps and lowest seal level) had occurred 2000 – 3000 years earlier. The world was colder and dryer and far less hospitable than today. The enormous ice sheets held massive amounts of water lowering sea levels. The world’s oceans were more than 460 feet lower than what they are today. This resulted in exposure of continental shelves, joined landmasses, and extensive coastal plains. (Fleming, et. al. (1998). “Refining the eustatic sea-level curve since the Last Glacial Maximum using far – and intermediate-field sites”. Earth and Planetary Science Letters 163 (1-4): 327-342).

The geography of the earth was significantly different from the present day and humanity lived primarily in a small concentrated area of the earth called the equatorial belt. The map below shows the earth as it may have looked in 15,000 BC. The land area between the two grey horizontal lines represents the equatorial belt and the grey area in the center (circled) is a landmass that existed 17,000 years ago.

This continent was the most suitable landmass to support human civilization because it possessed tropical rain forest and an abundance of resources and wild life making it the Eden of the ancient world. This lost continent some call Oceania but it was called Kumari Continent or Kumaria according to the ancient literature of Tamil Nadu, South India. It is said, in the ancient literature, that it was here that the earth’s climate was conducive to support large agricultural based populations. This is where some scholars believe that the cradle of human civilization flourished and it is here that humanity developed a highly sophisticated society perhaps comparable to our own in many ways.

The areas of the uppermost and lower parts of the map in dark grey represent enormous glaciers that were as high as the Rocky Mountains and covered large portions of the world’s landmasses. The areas in light grey were tundra, which supported very little vegetation and sparse life. The earth was a cold, dry planet and these areas lacked warmth, rainfall and moisture.

The darkest grey color within the equatorial belt (what is now Central Africa and Central America and Northern South America) represents areas of the earth that supported plant and animal life. Some of these areas were desert and these large land masses were colder in temperature Equatorial belt 15 than Oceania, due to warmer ocean currents. Humans most likely lived in these areas but most of these areas were not conducive to support large populations that could develop agriculture and civilizations.

About 15,000 BC the ice sheets stopped advancing and the earth began to warm slowly. Around 12,000 BC, an unknown geological or cosmic event triggered a sudden spectacular thawing of the earth – a mass global warming. The enormous glaciers that covered most of the earth quickly melted filling the oceans with water causing ocean encroachment into the low-lying coastal areas where much of human population existed. Within a relatively short span of time the melting waters from the glaciers rapidly elevated the sea levels and submerged enormous landmasses, including much of Kumari Continent, reshaping the geography and the living space of humanity.

The rapid thawing of the earth and the receding Ice Age were cataclysmic. Tidal waves of massive proportions swept the shorelines of ancient earth and consumed them beneath the rapidly rising oceans. Along with these events, the global warming caused extensive evaporation, which then caused extended monsoons that caused an inundation of the land with flooding. Entire continents of land submerged beneath the rising oceans and gigantic super hurricane force storms and monsoons long lasting swept the planets surface.

Because of the gigantic loss of landmass, groups of inhabitants from Kumari Continent migrated from their homelands to other habitable places on the earth. These groups may have been the legendary 12 lost tribes. Some researchers believe that the native language of these people was an ancient form of Tamil.

# Love and Resonance

———————————————————————————–
By Dr. Jessie Mercay
posted by Ganesh

In the Vishwakarma tradition I follow there is a concept called resonance. It is due to resonance that the “Vaastu effect” occurs. This resonance is likened to the resonance that occurs when you strike a string on a guitar (for example) and the same string on a guitar next to it voluntarily starts to vibrate. We say that is what happens when a person spends time in a Vaastu building. That is, the luminous thread of consciousness in the cave of their heart (known as the Brahma sutra) starts to vibrate with the special qualities of the Brahmasutra of a properly built Vaastu building. This is what brings the good qualities of the Vaastu building to the life of the person because the qualities of the luminous thread of light of the building called Brahmasutra transfers its qualities to the individuals thread of light or Brahmasutra and then the Brahmasutra of the individual out-pictures its qualities as their life. So, if you change the frequency or vibration of the Brahmasutra then you change the life of the person.

Well, this resonance spoke of in the Vaastu Shastras and Pranava Veda is called bhakti. It is actually a scientific word coined by Brahmarishi Mayan to describe resonance in Vaastu. Most people think it means “service or love.” While it has come to mean that over time, the origin of the word was developed to describe resonance as a concept.

I was discussing this in class and with that discussion I mentioned that research shows that “love” is really simply a biochemical reaction in the body. I mentioned that our emotions are chemical molecules and that includes “love.” (See the text “Molecules of Emotion” and many other books based on solid research). This is of course disconcerting to most people. The term “bhakti” has become romanticized to mean service to the guru or love of God etc, and it is a hard pill to swallow when the real meaning is discussed.

But, to think of bhakti as love and devotion is a misrepresentation of the real meaning of the word. After thinking about it further I thought I would define the word more clearly. “Bha” has several interesting meanings that include: A beam of light, luster, brightness, splendor, to look like, to appear as, to shine upon, to show ones’s self as, to come into manifest as. The suffix “ti” contains among other meanings the idea “to go toward.” It also contains the concept” to attain.”

Furthermore, the Sanskrit noun ”bhakti” is also derived from the verb root ”bhaj”, the meaning of which includes, “to share in” and” to belong to.” It also occurs in compounds where it means, “being a part of” and “that which belongs to or is contained in anything else.”

Hence, putting it all together, we find that “bhakti” refers to a bright, splendorous beam of light (the cosmic Brahmasutra of the building) that looks like ones own beam of light (individual Brahmasutra found in the Atman which resides in the cave of the heart of every living being) that moves toward an individual, shines upon an individual, becomes part of the individual and shares its’ qualities with the individual. This is a perfect description of what Brahmarishi Mayan meant in describing resonance. Hence, the word “bhakti.”

So what about love? Interestingly enough, one of the vibrational qualities of the Brahmasutra of a Vaastu building is referred to as “spiritual bliss.” This sounds like a woo woo word but, in fact, it is a real frequency. This refers to a specific vibration which when experienced is filled with joy, happiness, and immense ecstasy and sense of well-being. Following an upsurge of spiritual bliss a series of emotions may unfold. Among these emotions one may experience something called divine love. Divine love is not the same as human love. It really has no object and is a direct experience of the divine consciousness experiencing itself through you. It has been called rapture and many other things.

When a person has this experience of spiritual bliss and divine love then as the experience fades a bit human love follows. Along with this human love is a sense of wanting to serve the lord in some way. The bhakti or resonance is the cause not the service or love and devotion. In other words, through grace we have the ecstatic experience of spiritual bliss and divine love. We cannot do any service or anything else to create that experience. It is only the divine itself that causes that experience in its’ own time. Then human love and desire to serve follows.

There is satisfaction from loving and serving but that satisfaction is not bhakti. Only the divine causes bhakti. We cannot cause bhakti by our actions of service and devotion. When we enter a Vaastu house or Vaastu temple, there is an automatic bhakti that occurs due to the Divine vibration of the building achieved through application of the numerical order, orientation, and building codes designed to uphold the vibration that are contained in Vaastu Shastras. Only very few living people are properly trained to produce a proper Vaastu building. Thos people have spent years at the feet of a traditional Sthapati year after year and have devoted many years to proper study and experience. Their knowledge can only be passed on by the permission of their Sthapati.

In short, a Vaastu building offers Bhakti to an individual by the Brahmasutra (luminous thread of light) extending itself outward and moving to that part of a human (the Brahmasutra of the Atman) that is like itself (the divine spark found in the cave of the hearty) and brings luster and luminosity to the individual. Bhakti – divine resonance – is for everyone. Mayan said he created this art for the well-being of humanity. Now it is available for the world – for you. We are creating these forms for you – all for love.

# Pranava Veda – Source?

———————————————————————————–
By Dr. Jessie Mercay
posted by Ganesh

Earlier it saw mentioned that Pranava Veda as a lost science. The Pranava Veda, the foundation for the scientific background of this body of knowledge, was lost for hundreds maybe thousands of years. There is an amazing story about its rediscovery that will shed light on the privilege it is to learn about Mayan and the Pranava Veda.

The Discovery

In a small village in rural Tamil Nadu, India, there lived a scholar and poet by name Veerabathiranar, also known as Kaurmari Dasar. Veerabathiranar was a savant and had a divine gift of perfectly memorizing thousands of verses of ancient texts. The works of Mayan were among the texts he memorized in his younger years.

Veerabathiranar had a special interest in astrology and sought out ancient palm leaf texts at the famed Saraswati Mahal Library in Tanjore, Tamil Nadu, India. The Saraswathi Mahal Library contains rare and valuable collections of palm leaf manuscripts on all aspects of art, culture and literature and medical prescription of ancient Ayurveda scholars including patient case studies and interviews in the manuscripts classified under the Dhanvantari section. These manuscripts have been collected for hundreds of years – some of the knowledge is thousands of years old.

In his search for the most ancient texts on astrology, Veerabathiranar found a large cache of very ancient palm leaf texts. He read portions of them and then continued to look for astrology texts. Something inside drew him back to the old cache of texts he found. He kept reading them again and again for four years. He soon came to realize that these texts were of great import. He realized that the legendary great sage and architect named Mamuni Mayan wrote them.

Over time, Veerabathiranar became so entranced by Mayans’ writing that he began to memorize thousands and thousands of verses. He returned on a regular basis to study and memorize what was called the Pranava Veda.

One day many years later Veerabathiranar went back to the library to view the text once again. He discovered that the source texts were missing. They were stolen, sold, or lost in a fire. It was unclear about what actually happened to them. He came to understand that he was the only source available for the preservation of this profound knowledge. He then sought out Dr. V. Ganapati Sthapati whom he knew had a great interest in the works of Mamuni Mayan because of Sthapati’s ancient family lineage as a Mayonic architect.

As Dr. Sthapati listened to Veerabathiranar chant the ancient texts he was mesmerized. He soon became overwhelmed with the importance of these scriptures. He realized that this knowledge being transmitted in front of him was the foundation of his own Vaastu lineage and the authentic entire lineage of Sthapatya Veda.

While Mayan was thought of as a mythical being from legends in many parts of India, in the southern region of Tamil Nadu, where he first lived after the great deluge, he was respected as a real human and authentic progenitor of Pranava Veda – the ultimate source of Vaastu Shastras, Agamas, and much of Indian culture. There even exist today places where he was known to have built shrines. His teachings were passed down to his twelve disciples and spread throughout India and to many places in the rest of the world.

Dr. Sthapati’s lineage was part of the tradition begun by Mayan. Dr. V. Ganapati Sthapati took great effort in recording, in writing, the fifty – thousand verses of the Pranava Veda that Veerabathiranar recited to him. The Pranava Veda is one of the oldest Tamil Works available today. It is presented as the source of Vedas by Veda Vyasa himself (compiler of the Vedas). This scripture deals with the basic principles of Light, Sound, Space, Time and Self (individual and Universal soul). The Pranava Veda is said to be a detailed commentary on Mayan’s seminal work The Aintiram that is currently a published text.

Dr. S. P. Sabharathnam, a Vastu and Agama scholar and translator of Mayan’s works and many other ancient texts says this about Pranava Veda:

The working pattern of the basic two aspects of Pranava (OM) – OM light and Om sound is the core subject of this work. The nature of Primal Light is analyzed in terms of visible rays, invisible rays, sparks and flames, which are constantly working. In inner cosmos and outer cosmos, (inner cosmos is within every Human body) the nature of Primal Sound is analyzed in terms of audible and inaudible sounds which go hand in hand with the Luminous rays and sparks. The Pranava Veda establishes the truth that there is the basic source of Primal Light, which emits trillions and trillions of luminous beams, which are classified into three – solar, lunar, and fiery. All the visible luminous bodies moving in the near and distant heavens derive their energy only from this Basic Source of Primal Light… The Pranava Veda speaks elaborately on the 64 square grid, micro-abode, five-fold manifestation, five cosmic elements, the positive, negative and neutral interaction between the five cosmic elements and above all the unfailing total identity and correspondence between the inner cosmos (human body) and the outer cosmos.

Some of the worthy declarations made in this Veda are:

• Who is there in this world who has perfectly realized the greatness and efficacy of the human body?
• It is only the perfect human being who could gain the essential knowledge of the Eternal Existence and of the ever-pure Space of Consciousness.
• It is only the perfect human being who could gain the beatific intuition and everlasting Bliss.
• It is only the perfect human being who could co-ordinate the basic functions of light, sound, space and time.
• It is only the perfect human being who could attain the knowledge of Cosmic totality within himself and elevate Himself to the extreme spiritual heights.

The Pranava Veda, which is replete with basic principles and concepts of the ever – expanding universe and the visible and invisible cosmic structures, is sure to benefit the reader in great measure.
