“The Self unfolds Itself, by Itself, for its Self” – Bhagavad Gita
The crux of Vastu Science and Technology is the manifestation process called Vastureva Vaastu and the application of those principles to poetry, dance, music and architecture. The same principles apply in terms of the manifestation process regarding architecture, sculpture, music, poetry and dance.
Vastureva Vaastu simply means unmanifest pure potential Energy (Vastu) turning itself into material form (Vaastu). This the technical meaning of the term Pranava, With the understanding of this process and the simultaneous yet successive manner in which it occurs, one comes to fully realize that Vastu is Vaastu. Pure Consciousness, Brahman, is the same as the material world and the material world is the same as Pure Consciousness, Brahman. There really is no distinction between manifest and unmanifest. There is no distinction between an individual and consciousness itself.
Patanjali, in his yoga sutras, recommends that a seeker perform dharna (concentration), dhyan (contemplation), and samadhi (deep meditation) on the distinction between Intellect (representing manifest) and Soul (representing unmanifest) and he or she will experience an awakening. That awakening comes because eventually over time one realizes that, as pointed out by Mayan, there is no distinction between Intellect and Soul. They are one and the same. Everything in the manifest world is nothing but consciousness. When that awareness becomes a permanent experience then the goal of life is realized. The study and application of Vastu Science is a path to that realization because understanding and experiencing Vastureva Vaastu on a very deep level promotes the understanding and experience that All is One.
“… forms produced by the application of Vaastu Science are the forms of the Spirit/Soul…” – Dr. V. Ganapati Sthapati
The following diagram, created by Dr. V. Ganapati Sthapati, depicts the process of Vastu becoming Vaastu – potential energy transforming into kinetic energy. While at first the process may seem complicated, as you read on you will find that it is in actuality simple and elegant. As you read, know that this process is occurring every nano second within your own Self. Read with an open heart and open mind. That openness will create deep and profound understanding that you will find to be trans-formative.
