The Pranava Veda is the first Veda and the “source Veda.” Dr. V. Ganapati Sthapati explains, “A good deal of evidences is available both in Tamil as well as in Sanskrit works, particularly in Srimat Bhagavatam and Skandam about the remote existence of Pranava Veda. This Veda was later on called the science of Vastu (energy) and Vaastu (embodied energy), which is gaining much popularity today across the globe.”
Dr. V. Ganapati Sthapati goes on to say that Veda Vyasa himself said in the Bhagavatam:
“eka eva pura vedo pranavha sarva vangmayha”
(9th skandha, 14th chapter, sloka 48 of Bhagavatam)
This phrase by Veda Vyasa, the compiler of the present day Vedas, means that there was only one Veda in the remote past and that Veda is called Pranava Veda – the Veda of the shilpis of India. Artharva Sheershopanishad makes mention of the term “Pranava” as being “ongara” – the all-pervasive substance.
Pranava Veda elucidates the science of Pranava. It is the scientific study of The All Pervading Substance. Pranava Veda presents the science of “how the invisible substance of the universe (paravastu) makes itself manifest in the visible material (Vaastu) forms.” In other words, Pranava Veda reveals the process of how the All Pervasive pure Energy turns into Matter or material existence.(www.vastuved.com)
What we see above is called the “Five fold Veda.” This is the “source” Veda that presents the scientific manifestation process (Pranava Veda) and the four products of that manifestation (poetry, music, dance, and architecture).
All of these “forms” (poetry, music, dance, architecture) are generated from the Unmanifest Space or Brahmam based on SPACE, TIME, SOUND and LIGHT which give rise to all aural and visual forms in the manifest world. In this science and technology, each of these manifest forms of paravastu or Vastu are governed by a common grammar of Kaala manaa (time units) called Taala maana.The dominant and all pervasive element in the creation of these forms is the concept and process of the unmanifest becoming manifest by its own creative nature.
Based upon this theory of manifestation, and to signify the Five Fold Veda, the Shilpis have created a form with five heads. This form is called Vishwakarman. It represents the five Vedas, that is the Pranava Veda which is the instruction manual for how the Unmanifest (Vastu) turns Itself into Manifest creation (Vaastu) and the four products of that manifestation (poetry, music, dance and architecture).
