Since the grace – gilding Mayan occupied his seat under the banyan tree, since the unique science of Vaastu flourished and got propagated from the bottom of the banyan tree through Mayan, since the disciples deeply interested in gaining knowledge, grew large in number, holy temples (seats of learning) were constructed in each town for the study and growth of Vaastu Science and wisdom.

Ganesh, does “Mayan” refer to the Buddha, all Buddhas or the abstract “entity”?
Below are my humble learnings and thoughts…
Mamuni Mayan (between 10,0000 and 13,500 years ago) referred here is the Progenitor of Vastu. You can find more about him, his influence around the world and his works here. I haven’t come across yet any reference of ‘Mayan’ to the Buddha.
Buddhi is a feminine Sanskrit noun derived from the same root as the more familiar masculine form Buddha (budh- to be awake, to understand, to know). Buddhi literally means Intellect in Tamil/Sanskrit. Buddhi denotes an aspect of mind that is higher than the rational mind and that is attracted to Brahman (i.e., to “Truth” (sat) or “Reality” (dharma)).
Buddha means “awakened one” or “the enlightened one.” “Buddha” is also used as a title for the first awakened being in an era. In most Buddhist traditions, Siddhartha Gautama is regarded as the Supreme Buddha of our age. This is what I know about the usage of term ‘Buddha’. 🙂
Thank you for this Ganesh, I was just thinking I would have to look up this information, your posts on Mayan fascinate me. And I didn’t know the meaning of the word ‘Buddha’ either.
Blessings to you!
You are most welcome! I have shared again too. Hope you got what you looking for… 🙂
