Vaastu and ‘Living Structure’ – Part 1

Vaastu Science when applied to built space takes other aspects into consideration including: slope of land, flow of underground water, roads, bodies of water, quality of soil, vegetation, flowing water on the surface (streams and rivers), the flow of water through pipes in the building, to some extent building materials, secondary door placements, window placements, elevational factors and much more. The unique aspect of Mayonic Science, the original form of Vaastu Science, is that these considerations are based on mathematics, astro-dynamics, and geophysics and physics rather than superstition.

The impact of applying these Vaastu principles to a structure (home, office, church, temple, apartment, village, statue, painting, piece of jewelry, etc.) is that structure, regardless of size, becomes a “ living structure.” Living structure means that the structure is vibrating with life-giving qualities of consciousness specifically selected for a particular inhabitant or group of inhabitants. While the concept of “living structure” is difficult to understand, a story by Dr. V. Ganapati Sthapati, in the documentary film, “A Shilpi Speaks,” might help clarify this concept:

When my father was working in the Ramana ashram he had to make a statue of Sri Ramana Maharishi. My father was very close to him. He had seen the innermost feelings of the Maharishi on his face. What my father saw, he savored and absorbed. When the work on the image was begun the Maharishi would come every day and look at the progress. As the image was nearing completion, he looked at the statue and said, “Oh! Ramana is here!” Immediately my father put away his hammer and chisel.

Through the proper execution of Vaastu Science, the statue ceased to be simply a chunk of stone – it became enlivened with the consciousness, qualities, and characteristics of Ramana Maharishi. When Ramana Maharishi witnessed his own consciousness and qualities awakened in the stone he acknowledged that to the Shilpi. The stone had become a living structure exuding the vibrational frequency of Sri Ramana Maharishi.

Another way to view this is that animate objects vibrate at a specific frequency in Space and Time. Inanimate objects have their own frequencies as well. The term living structure describes the frequency of animate objects. It is as if, when Vaastu Science is applied to an inanimate stone and the stone is formed into a Vaastu structure, it begins to vibrate in the same way as an animate object. Those who know the secrets of Vaastu Shastras can determine the qualities or frequencies that objects (enclosed spaces) produce.

According to Dr. V. Ganapati Sthapati, without applying Vaastu principles, specifically Mayonic Science and Technology, the structure, jewelry, art or other object is “sick.” That means that consciousness is not harmonic with the wearer or dweller. In that state, the individual associated with that structure does not experience the possible gain and benefit available from Primal Existence. The “sick” object or structure can, in some cases, drain the life of the individual and create ill-health and misfortune. It is as if the “sick” structure is seeking energy from the owner/resident in an effort to struggle for life. The result is that the owner/resident begins to struggle for life.

In a properly constructed or rectified Vaastu structure, life energy and harmony is added to the life of the owner and occupant. The entire structure of a Vaastu house becomes a self-­‐effulgent living organism that transforms its dweller into a radiant self – effulgent spiritual being. A properly constructed built space created through the application of Vastu Science and Vaastu Science brings spiritual bliss to the dweller.
