The Aintiram – The Five Aspects

By Dr. Jessie Mercay
posted by Ganesh

In Mayan’s deep, spiritual and scientific treatise called the Aintiram, the profound underpinnings of Vastu Science are articulated.

Aintiram is a multidimensional treatise on Energy and Matter, Space and Time, Order and Beauty. Absolute time creates life said Mayan in his Aintiram. He added that “Mathematics has its roots in the Time unit and Architecture is the zenith achievement of mathematics.” Aindiram is an embodiment of the subtle and penetrating theories of five aspects (Ain-Tiram) namely, Moolam (Prime Existence), Kaalam (Time), Seelam (Rhythm), Kolam (Form) and Gnalam (Earth). Mayan views the entire cosmic phenomenon in terms of these five aspects.

The following is a summary of some of the principles put forth by Mayan in the Aintiram:

1. Nothing is created – it is manifested from the One Source.
2. The Originating Source is sometimes called Moolam, Brahmam (Quantum Field)
3. It constantly creates (manifests) so that it may forever savor and enjoy its own Ultimate Beauty. That is, the Originating Source found itself to be so beautiful and perfect, and in love with that beauty and perfection that it manifested itself in different material forms in order to experience and savor that beauty eternally.
4. This Originating Source or spiritual center is Moolam (meaning source), Maiyyam (meaning center) and Pulli meaning point) – the central source point of consciousness – pure energy.
5. All objects of nature are unified entities (forms)of energy and matter.
6. The free space is the unified field of energy and matter and source of all forms that we see in material world.
7. There are two OMs: OM Light and OM Sound, the former is the source of all visible objects and the latter, the source of all aural forms.
8. All material forms of the universe are musical forms or have taken shape on musical rhythm or musical scale.
9. Time creates, sustains, and destroys all, so created.
10. The primal manifest form of the unmanifest is square (primal wave pattern).
11. The primal square pattern is designated as the diagram of embodied energy – Vaastu Purusha mandala.
12. The free space is packed with cubical atoms of energy. They are building blocks of the structure of the universe.
13. The cube is micro-abode called Sittravai/Chittrambalam (mini hall in Tamil).
14. Within the hall there is a vertical luminous shaft called Brahma Sutra (Oli nool).
15. This Olinool/Brahma Sutra is a shaft of consciousness also called Moolathoon/Moolasthambham.
16. This shaft of consciousness vibrates in a particular order called rhythm. This is the order of nature.
17. This rhythmic vibration of the shaft of consciousness is the dance of Shiva, the Space.
18. The micro space, in the cubical shape is foetus, Garbha or Bindu. This is known as Vinkaru in Tamil.
19. This micro abode is the repository of light and sound.
20. The free space is Light and the Light is Moolam or source of the universe and universal forms. Light is Brahman, Atman, Vastu Brahman – Nun porul in Tamil.
21. The embodied energy is Vaastu Brahman/Vaastu Purushan. The space enclosed in a building is Prasada Purushan – energized building –Building is a living organism, built of musical units of measure.
22. Architecture is the supreme achievement of mathematics.
23. Mathematics is rooted in the dynamism of Absolute Time.
24. Time is the vibration of Space.
25. Time and Space are equal.
26. Time is one of the subtle elements of Space (akasa).
27. Time is the causal element of all objects of the Universe.
28. The microcosmic structure is in total identity with macrocosmic structure.
29. The supreme space is throbbing every moment to express itself out.
30. Through the power of inner consciousness, the knower of Vastu should know about light aspects and sound aspects of OM pertaining to both inner and outer space.
31. Those who do not realize the creative dynamism of inner space cannot know the dynamism of outer space (195,831).

These thirty-one principles form part of the foundation of the sciences called building architecture of Sthapatya Veda, Vaastu Shastra and Traditional Indian Architecture. These are commonly called Vastu or Vaastu. While these ideas may seem unfamiliar or perhaps abstract, their meaning and significance becomes clear as one delves more deeply into the science of Vastureva Vaastu- energy becoming matter through the manifestation process which we will go through in next weekend.

What is Vastu Science?

By Dr. Jessie Mercay
posted by Ganesh

A highly complex science that requires thoughtful study and precise execution as Vaastu Technology. It is a science born of knowledge of physics, mathematics and other sciences. It involves comprehension of Space, Time, Light, Sound, the five elements, and an understanding of the dynamics of manifestation of energy from potential energy (Primal) to kinetic energy (matter or form). – Dr. V. Ganapati Sthapati

The term Vastu (Vastu Brahmam or Vastu Purusha) refers to primal, unmanifest, potential energy – Consciousness as energy. It is the energy through which and within which all material forms manifest. Throughout history and among many cultures, this primal energy has been given many names. The names range from religious (God, Brahmam) to scientific (the Quantum Field). Vastu is that unmanifest energy that lives eternally. It is the Field within which the manifest world exists as particles and is ultimately governed.

The Field is the sole governing agency of the particle. – Albert Einstein

The free Space is the unified field of energy and matter and source of all forms that we see in material world. – Mayan in “Aintiram”

Vas: to shine; to grow bright, to cause to shine; to enter into, to dwell, becoming light, dawning, the seat or place of, an abiding substance or essence, to cohabit with. Vaas: to make fragrant or to perfume, an intoxicant, to be or make firm, dwelling place, to assume the appearance of, matter.

Vastu is that energy of force that lives eternally. It is never-ending and omnipresent. In examining these definitions, we can see that Vastu is the seat of an abiding, shining substance or essence. It has a quality of growing brightness and is the pith or substance that enters into and cohabits with that in which it dwells. It is the source of all of the material world yet it cohabits with the material world as Vaastu. It does not separate itself from the material world.

Vaastu is that which assumes the appearance of matter. It makes firm or gives concrete shape to the place where it dwells. It makes fragrant that in which it dwells. That fragrance is the intoxicating spiritual bliss experienced by people who live in or visit a Vaastu structure.

Vastu Science is an ancient science that describes the process through which Vastu (unmanifest) turns itself into Vaastu (manifest forms and material). Vastu written with one “a” refers to unmanifest Absolute Space or Pure Consciousness. Vastu written with two “a’s” (Vaastu) refers to the unmanifest Absolute Space having taken on its material form. Vastu Science then is the science of unmanifest Pure Consciousness and Vaastu Science is the science of manifest Pure Consciousness (Vastu as the material world).

Vastu Science gives rise to Vaastu technology. That is, an understanding of Vastu Science provides the basis for understanding the use of Vaastu technology in the relative material world. Vaastu Technology arises from Vastu Science. One must understand Vastu Science before one can understand and execute Vaastu technology properly.

“This science deals with the eternal process of the subtle energy manifesting into material space or material form. In short, it is the science of manifestation of energy into matter or material form.” – Dr. V. Ganapati Sthapati.

Vastu Science and Vaastu Science and Technology

By Dr. Jessie Mercay
posted by Ganesh

“It is the Inner space that becomes the Primal source and source of creation. It becomes the conscious form. It is the creative urge; it is consciousness itself; it reveals the creative way and process; it illuminates, shedding light everywhere; it effects the completion and fulfillment. Observe the fundamental order of inner space.” – Dr.V.Ganapati Sthapati, Who Created God, p 35‐36, quoting Brahmarishi Mayan

The fundamental crux of Vastu Science and Vaastu Science and Technology (the reason for the difference in spelling will become clear) is that Mayan, an ancient architect and Rishi perceived that there is one force, one fundamental First Principle from which all life emerges, and in which all life resides and ultimately returns to its Primal state of pure energy. He named this principle Brahmam. He saw that Brahmam, (Absolute Space, Consciousness, Potential Energy) by its own initiative, goes through a specific process to transform and manifest itself as the material world and its objects, Kinetic Energy. Mayan perceived that process was accomplished through a mathematical order and that order could be replicated by humans to unfold specific qualities of Brahmam that would vibrate in a form that brought health, happiness and spiritual bliss to those who partook in that form. That form could be dance, poetry, music, sculpture, or architecture.

Unmanifest Absolute Space- Consciousness-Brahmam transforms itself into manifest Consciousness- Brahmam in forms such as trees, rocks, people etc.

Siva Lingam – Representation of GOD in Religion

These three “gunas” or qualities are examples of the intermediary forms of Brahmam as it transforms itself from unmanifest to manifest. They are both forms and frequencies aroused within consciousness as it moves within itself to contain itself in material form. (These forms of Brahmam or First Principle are discussed in-depth in The Science of Mamuni Mayan’s Vaastu Temple Architecture: Savoring Your Own Beauty, by Dr. Jessie Mercay)

The universal laws of authentic Vaastu Shastra (Mayonic Science) reveal, in profound detail, how to create built space using the precise mathematical formulas, inherent in all creative activities, which take place in nature. A Vaastu structure is a vibrant, self-contained living organism, which serves to enhance all positive qualities of life for its inhabitants.

Brahmarishi Mayan said very succinctly in his Aintiram: “Through the power of inner consciousness, the knower of Vastu should know about light aspects and sound aspects of OM pertaining to both inner and outer space. Those who do not realize the creative dynamism of inner space cannot know the dynamism of outer space.”

Thank you Dr. Jessie J Mercay!

Dear Friends,

On behalf of you all I like to thank Dr. Jessie J Mercay, the author of ‘Fabric of Universe: The Origins, Implications, and Applications of Vastu Science and Vaastu Science and Technology‘ for allowing me to share the immense and invaluable knowledge of our ancient science among all of us for a great cause! She also shared the revised version for the benefit of all. I have no words to explain her kindness and gratitude. We may wish all the very best in her future endeavors!

Dr. Jessie J Mercay and Dr. V. Ganapati Sthapati are modern day reflections of Mamuni Mayan’s (Great Sage Mayan) great works.

“Vaastu Science embodies the onward universal journey from the Inner Subtle Nature to the Outer Gross Nature. In other words, the marked difference is that Vaastu Science is Spirit-centric and Modern Science, Matter-centric.

This Science, in its entirety and simplicity, when applied, enables us to live in harmony with the innate rhythm of Nature.

Dr. Jessie Mercay has thoroughly explained the origins of Universal Life and the Science behind it. Going one step further, her immense grasp of this Science has enabled her to expound very ably its applications in Building Architecture and its implications on human life.

As Shilpa Guru, I bless Dr. Jessie for her inimitable contribution to the essence of Indian Culture.”

Dr. V. Ganapati Sthapati, B.A., F.I.I.A.

Personally I believe this knowledge will give the clarity and reasoning to understand Science, Spirituality and the Scientific principles behind the Religion and GOD. I felt this knowledge should be shared among all of us to know our Self better and for better humanity!

Sincere student,
