Vaastu Shastras, the texts that contain the knowledge base for the subject of Vaastu are anchored in the Science of Spirit (Pure Energy). The emphasis in Vaastu Shastra is the application of the principles of how Spirit – Brahmam) unfolds during its transformation from energy to matter.
Brahmam as defined by Mayan, in his astronomical treatise called ‘Surya Siddhanta’ says that tri-dimensionally every particle of space is a subtle cube of Energy, called Chitrambalam or Micro-Abode within which there is a ‘shaft of light’ or ‘shaft of consciousness’ vibrating or performing a ‘rhythmic dancer’. This is the dance of the Cosmic Dancer, Lord Shiva. The whole universe is filled with subtle cubes of energy call Karu or Bindu or Fetus.
“Vaastu Shastras and Sthapatya Veda outline the specific technology of creating built space that mirrors the form of Spirit with specific qualities of Spirit that will uplift an individual and bring them into complete resonance or harmony with Spirit. Built space constructed using the principles set forth in Vaastu Shastras are forms of Spirit – energized forms that vibrate with the aliveness of Spirit. It is Spirit and its’ laws of manifestation that is the basis of the principles of building that are set forth in Vaastu Shastras. The fundamental principle is that “the Universe is subject to a mathematical formula and architecture is a manifestation of this formula.” (Dr. V. Ganapati Sthapati, Building Architecture of Sthapatya Veda, p. 36)
The purpose of Vaastu Science is to give form to consciousness. That is, it is the transformation of consciousness into visual and aural forms governed by the science of Time and Space using Light and Sound as raw materials.
Vaastu Science is the application of the principles of manifestation (Vastu Science) to the material world. When the principles of Vastu Science are applied to forms of art, music, dance, poetry and architecture, the form (art, music, etc.) becomes directly resonant with the positive qualities of Pure Consciousness or Absolute Space. That resonance of positive qualities is in turn transmitted to the viewer, listener, or dweller.
In the heart of the cave of the body there is an inner space and in that inner – space there is the vibrant thread of consciousness. It is this thread of consciousness that functions as the string of the sarira-vina (bodily instrument)…
The structure of the Vaastu inspired building vibrates with cosmic energy and the bodily instruments resonates with this vibration. …if a part of free space is isolated and confined into a four walled structure called building, it becomes a living organism and the space enclosed will start vibrating in a particular order. If such a building is designed to vibrate in the same numerical order, as that of the indweller, the resultant phenomenon is that, he will experience harmony or perfect union with the Universal Self… (Dr. V. Ganapati Stahpati)
