The Heart of the Soul…

The Heart of the Soul: Mystics and scientists agree about the heart of all matter – The God Particle – Higgs boson by Dr. Jessie Mercay

“While I was beseeching Our Lord today… I began to think of the soul as if it were a castle made of a single diamond or of very clear crystal, in which there are many rooms, just as in Heaven there are many mansions.” — St. Teresa of Avila

This description of the soul by St. Teresa of Avila, found in the book “Interior Castles” is extremely similar to the description of the Cosmic Soul and the individuated cosmic soul (Atman) described by Brahmarishi Mayan thousands of years ago. Mayan called this “microabode”. Or smallest abode of consciousness in living beings. He diagrammed the Atman and Cosmic Being through the Vaastu Purusha Mandala with its’ divisions of 8×8 grid (Cosmic or unmanifest level) and 9×9 grid (manifest level). The book “Fabric of the Universe” by Dr. Jessie Mercay describes this in detail. available at bookstore.

Understanding that the Soul is not just a vague idea of some aspect of our self opens the door to direct experience. This direct experience then becomes the doorway to the Infinite Being we all seek. Our aware connection with our own Atman (Soul) changes our life, our goals, our wishes, and our sense of well being. Mystics from all faiths agree that this form called Soul exists literally in the heart of all beings. Certain and specific meditation in a specific environment opens access to this Inner Being. Once that access is there a change in thinking occurs. Thoughts cease to flow from the mind of the brain and one begins to operate on a subtle level where thought arises directly from the mind of the heart. Thought becomes very faint or even imperceptible and one begins to operate from Divine motive rather than individual motive.

At the very least this is a relief because one is not hampered or stressed due to constant thinking. If one has more conscious thoughts, they are direct and pure emanations of the divine. No, it is not as if God is talking to you. That is simply a reflection of duality an not a reflection of oneness. It is more like you are living Gods’ thoughts. That is, this Unity with the Divine through the Atmic experience is a living experience of “let thy will be done.” Let thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven becomes a living reality in that one acts through divine will rather than individual will/personality. Ones true nature is then out-pictured rather than ones personality nature. There is a caveat regarding ones own nature but it is too much to cover here.

Brahmarishi Mayan developed his Vaastu Shastras to create environments that vibrate with an ambiance that promotes ones spiritual well being. These environments cause a specific vibration that causes the human vibration (via the thread of consciousness in the Atman) to become enlivened and in resonance with the Cosmic qualities of spiritual bliss. This enhances ones connection with the heart of the soul – Atman.

Now, to give a little relief to those who are more scientifically minded I will put this in different terms: Brahmarishi Mayan (and apparently St. Therese of Avilla and others) cognized within their selves that there is a field that all material forms arise from called the Quantum Field. This field is one of infinite potential and is the field within which all the material world exists. Physicists say that this Field is infinitely vast and contains the gross material world and minute particles of light and sound – these are also described by Brahmarishi Mayan (about 10,000 BCE).

When these particles become orderly they pulse or vibrate causing specific qualities of energy based upon their wave form. These qualities of energy emerge and become individuated and make up the entire material world.

The juncture of time when the sperm and egg unite begins the life of an individuated being. This act of creation has at its’ root the ignition of these light and sound particles. There is a point at which there is an energy transference from unmanifest Quantum Field to material form. At this point or location there is a light/sound particle some call Atman and that particle multiplies itself and creates flesh around it that we call the physical organ – heart. This initial particle that out pictures the heart and other organs including the entire body, is in fact a tiny particle that can ultimately be identified by physicists. This particle may already be identified at the atom smashing research done at CERN where the so called “God particle” has been discovered. Mayan says this form he saw is indeed as St. Therese described. Mayan also said that this particle goes from a cuboidal shape to a polygonal shape (shown as octagon), and then to a round shape as it becomes fully manifest. (This sequence is demonstrated by the well known image called lingam, which begins with a square bottom, octogonal mid- secetion and circular top). In the picture below from National Geographic, the process of atom smashing reveals this “God particle” (also called Higgs boson) born of immense light and formed into a round form. This coincides with what Mayan described. Researchers in particle physics say that this particle is at the “heart of all matter.”

Finally, we can access this “God particle” within the cave of our heart as described by the mystics and yogis. In accessing this, thoughts cease and we are overcome by a peace beyond all understanding. Living in a Vaastu home or having a small vaastu garbha (building) in your yard increases your opportunity to experience your own “God particle”, your source, and gain this profound well being.

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.”

Aintiram Quotes


Space is the fundamental source and energy for all things, for their origination and for their existence.

This important scientific concept, the tradition of Vaastu has been holding with it from the Vedic period and, in fact, from the period even prior to Vedic times. It maintains that SPACE itself turns into spatial forms and it has its own mathematical order or dynamics for changing into oral and visual forms.
