Earlier we saw a brief introduction about the Vastu Science and Vaastu Science and Technology. Before going into details, let me introduce Mamun Mayan (Great Sage Mayan), our ancient Father of Science to all.
The Progenitor of Vastu
A great scientist/ artist named Mamuni Mayan (between 10,0000 and 13,500 years ago) originated this ancient work, Vastu Science and Vaastu Science and Technology. Mayan lived on a landmass south of India, south of the present Kanyakumari, known as Kumari Continent or Kumari Kandam. This landmass was called Kumari Mandalam during Sangam days (a period of time in ancient history when scientists and scholars met and shared their ideas, literature, music, art, and scientific discoveries) and today it is known as the Lumerian Continent. This is thought to be the original home of the human race and human culture according to ancient texts.
In addition to the traditional building and manufacturing arts, under the umbrella of Vaastu Science falls the five Fold Science: Poetry, Music, Dance, Sculpture, and Architecture which correspond with the traditional science of Iyal, Isai, Natam, Kattidam, and Sirpam in the Tamil tradition. In Sanskrit they are called Sabda Veda, Gandharve Veda, Natya Veda, Sthapatya Veda, and Pranava Veda. They are all governed by a unique grammar of the science of Energy and Matter, Space and Time, and Rhythm and Form. The fundamental nature of these elements is revealed in the ancient text, The Pranava Veda. This is none other than the Science of manifestation. That is, the science of how the Infinite Energy (Vastu) transforms itself into matter or form (Vaastu).
During the time of the Pranava Veda, India was united as one great country whose borders spanned to Persia, Afghanistan, Nepal and into Cambodia and the Far East. There was no caste or division by religion or color. This Unity also reached to Kumari Continent that once existed in the South Ocean below India but was deluged by water from the melting icecaps (circa 10,000 BC). This fact has been revealed in the Bhagavatam, Sankalpa, Saivagama, and other sources.
Due to a series of land disturbances, including ocean water encroachments from melting icecaps and deluges, the continent became a series of islands and other landmasses separated by the ocean. One large island called Jamboo Dweepa was the home of Mamuni Mayan. Just before the last great deluge (perhaps the Biblical flood of Noah) that covered Jamboo Dweepa with water Mayan migrated to Southern India. During that time, he established Vastu and Vaastu as a dynamic science and technology. His work covered numerous areas including architecture, sculpture, dance, music and other art forms, astronomy and astrology, and herbology. To give credit to the progenitor, Mayan, and to differentiate this science from incomplete forms of Vastu that predominate in this and recent centuries, we call this entire field of study Mayonic Science.
We will see more about Mayan influences around of the world tomorrow.
