The Science and technology of Vaastu Shastra – re-defined re-interpreted and its relevance and all – time universal applicabililty re – established. Archetypal building forms illustrated and punctuated with apt quotations. The textual matter enriched

The book is both a scholarly exposition of the philosophical principles of Sthapatya Veda and a practical presentation of the rhythm and creation of rhythm bound forms which give rise to a variety of structures. A complete compendium on the science of Sthapatya Veda, popularly known as Vaastu Veda, with special reference to principles and practices of Vaastu based building architecture. Apart from the valuable textual matter, the book is also enriched with illustrations on the design process and aesthetic elevation treatment for buildings based Vaastu.

For any serious student of Vaastu Shastra this book is an essential bible. It is the culmination of the life work of Dr.Sthapathi, India's foremost temple builder, architect and Vaastu house builder. Dr. Sthapathi's words, like his buildings, are alive with consciousness and spirit.

Here's an excerpt from the preface:

"Vaastu Shastra has nowadays come to be related to the mere design principle of located the bedroom and kitchen inside a built space and only very few think beyond this point as to what is that which brings in a spritually alluring ambience when the built space or oriented according to Vaastu. Now comes the question of the attributes of the Space that surrounds us. Is there any relations between our inner space and the space surrounding us? If so, what is that? And how is the resonance between our inner space andbuilt space effected by the Vaastu science? What is that which we are able to experience when we are inside a temple in front of the sanctum-sanctorum? Can we say that it is the resonance in vibration of our inner self and that of the built space of the sanctum, which in popular terms is called "Bhakti?" Quite intriguing isn't it?"

Vedic Society Book Review(What's this?)
Review of Building Architecture of Sthapatya Veda Vol. 2
Dr. Ganapathi Sthapathi is one of a long and illustrious lineage of masters of Vedic architecture. His ancestors have constructed many great temples in Tamil Nadu and through his words one connects with the depth and magnitude of this lineage. His writings are clear and scientific, he is also using the Shastra as his point of reference for any conclusion. He deals with the subject of Vaastu in a rarely profound and poetic way. Sthapatya Veda (the original name of Vaastu), is a huge science that can pave the way for a much better world if it is applied more and more in public and private buildings. This book is a rare treasure of Vedic architecture covering all aspects one needs to know to construct in accordance with this science.
