Slope of Land in Vaastu

The slope of the land is an important factor that indicates certain qualities of Vaastu Purusha at a given site. Those qualities will affect a human living there based on the specific direction of slope in relation to the Earth’s grid. Specific qualities of Vaastu Purusha form the physical slope of the land and other geophysical features. Through insight and observation Mayan was able to assess the energetic patterns of a given site and then how those patterns would affect humans living there. This gave rise to various site assessment codes that at first glance might seem born of superstition. In fact, they are born of fundamental principles of the transformation of energy to matter.

It is optimal to select a site that has the proper slope of land already in place. It is possible to rectify a site using specific principles but, the underlying energetic patterns that formed the land slope and geology will always exist on that site even if only on a subtle level. Certainly it is of value to rectify an existing site if the land is already purchased but it will never be perfect in terms of subtle energy. Yet, good will come to the individual once they live in their Vaastu compliant house.

A small inclination of the site in an inappropriate direction is not as crucial as a large inclination in an improper direction. The force of nature that caused the small inclination is not as potent as a large inclination. In any case, the land must be flat for a minimum of ten feet around the house for optimal Vaastu effect and ensuing results. These are laws of subtle origin and thus of a subtle nature. We cannot overcome me the laws of subtle nature through trickery (doing some special trick to overcome them). We cannot trick Vaastu Purusha by hanging a mirror in the house or using a yantra or other device. In that same way we can’t trick Vaastu Purusha by flattening a drastically sloping piece of land. The essential patterns of subtle nature are there and can only be altered by that great Cosmic Force itself.

The diagrams below are an example of some of the many Shastric Codes set forth by the Vaastu Shastras that ensure the well-being of individuals inhabiting any given parcel of land or site.

Slope of Land in Vaastu Mayan also applied his understanding of the effect of mathematical values creating varying frequencies and qualities in any given built space. He formulated specific calculations – Ayadi calculations – that are applied to the perimeter of a built space called a Motherwall. We will see more about the Ayadi calculations by end of next week.

So who we are?


who we are

So who are we? We are the life force power of the universe, with manual dexterity and two cognitive minds. And we have the power to choose, moment by moment, who and how we want to be in the world. Right here right now, I can step into the consciousness of my right hemisphere where we are – I am – the life force power of the universe, and the life force power of the 50 trillion beautiful molecular geniuses that make up my form. At one with all that is. Or I can choose to step into the consciousness of my left hemisphere. where I become a single individual, a solid, separate from the flow, separate from you. I am Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor, intellectual, neuroanatomist. These are the ‘we’ inside of me.

Which would you choose? Which do you choose? And when? I believe that the more time we spend choosing to run the deep inner peace circuitry of our right hemispheres, the more peace we will project into the world and the more peaceful our planet will be.
