While Mayan gave the most direct and detailed understanding of this micro and macro form, other sages have spoken of it as well.
When I saw the effulgent abode of my Lord,
I bowed to it in awe and reverence,…
I rejoiced with my whole mind.
That Divine Vision is ever present to me…
I have attained the form of Love.
(Vs. 3897, Thiruarupta, Tamil Saint Ramalinga, translated by Sri A. Balakrishna Pillai, 1966)
Here, the beloved Tamil saint Ramalinga, describes this internal form – abode of lord indicates that there is a “form” in which the Lord exists – the same microabode perceived by Mayan. This form is the form of Love, or from Mayan’s perspective, the source of resonance with the divine called Bhakti. This Bhakti or resonance brings a spiritual bliss one might compare to love.
The great Tamil sage Thirumular who wrote the seminal scripture Thirumanitiram also gives us a hint of this concept of Mayan:
Vs. 114: He Planted His Feet on My Heart
All impurity He shattered-our Nandi, Forehead‐eyed,
Shattered to pieces before His opening Eye of Grace,
His Eye, at whose radiant light impurity quails;
So transfixed He His Coral Feet on heart of mine, Crystal turned.
Crystal turning is an amazing concept offered in this vibrant poem. The microabode is crystalline in shape. It is a cubicle form with a pyramidal shape on the top and bottom hence it looks like an uncut diamond. It is said to be located within the human body. It is a direct replicate of the Cosmic Body. Running vertically through this crystalline form is vibrant thread of light known variously as Moolam or Brahma Sutra. The Nataraja form of Shiva indicates this Brahma Sutra graphically. This poetic phrase, So transfixed He His Coral Feet on heart of mine, Crystal turned. Refers to this dancing thread of light and the crystalline structure of the microabode within the heart of each person.
This poet noticed that his own form, the crystalline structure of the microabode becomes activated through this experience at Chidambaram (a perfect Vaastu temple in South India). His poetry comments on this genuine experience of Bhakti or resonance and its effect upon himself. This experience does not only come to sages, rather it comes to all who partake of the experience of being at the door of Vaastu temple or residing within a Vaastu house.
Vibrations from a building can be transferred to its inhabitants. We are affected by the vibrations or waveforms surrounding us, both the positive and negative. With the principles of Vaastu, you can build a home that not only resonates harmoniously with you, but also can uplift your vibrations. Your home can support your wellbeing, health, happiness, prosperity and inner-peace.
One of Einstein’s great insights was to realize that matter and energy are really different forms of the same thing. As illustrated in his equation E=mc2, matter can be turned into energy, and energy into matter. This is the basis of the science of Vastu/ Vaastu.
What we perceive as qualities of matter, are actually differences in periodicity. – Bertrand Russell
