TRADITIONAL INDIAN SCIENCE & TECHNOLOGY
"In this age of highly advanced modern science and technology, it would seem highly incredible, if I were to express the truth that, in the past, India had a science of its own, noted for its supremacy and uniqueness.
It lay dormant during all the alien rules but today it is reemerging spectacularly - not only here, but in the west as well! This science succinctly called the Science of Energy and Matter, Time and Space, Space and Spatial form is actually a science of the Subtle Energy turning into gross energy or embodied energy, which is otherwise called material form.
Further it may be added that it is a science of Sound and Light & Word and Form, based on which, the material forms such as building architecture, temple architecture, town and city planning and imagic forms are evolved. They are all space centric but not religious or sectarian as mistakenly construed
This may be restated as a Science of manifestation of Energy into material form. This has further led to the discovery that the universe is subject to a mathematical formula and architecture is yet another manifestation of this formula.
This is the science underlying technological principles and processes in the domain of traditional art and architecture of Vaastu Shāstras. This ancient science of India is designated by the author of this article (Sthapati) as Mayonic science and technology, not only to make it distinct from the contemporary material sciences, but to restore and revalidate the unique spiritual science of a great scientist and technologist called Mayan, who lived in the land, south of the present Kanyakumari, known today as Kumari Continent. This land mass was called
நாவலந்தீவு Jambudweepam, during Sangam days. (10,000 BC and beyond)."

Vaastu Purusha Mandala
VAASTU PURUSHA MANDALA
ENERGY - GRID
"Absolute Time creates life"
"Mathematics has its roots in Time"
"The vibrating element called 'Time' causes this phenomenon"
The earth in this 3 * 3 VPM is the support element, while the other 4 elements (water, fire, space and air) are placed in their respective places.
The process of creation - in space.
Energy grid on fine (8 * 8) and material (9 * 9) levels
Manduka Vaastu Mandala 8*8,
Parama Saayika Vaastu Mandala 9*9
Names of padas.
This anandamaya kosa is a point or bindu where the experience actually takes place.
This is actually OM - either light or sound. Anything seen or heard is incomprehensible unless we reach this point. Everything comes from this point and spreads throughout the mandala and gets every meaning seen or heard. This is how the word will have meaning, meaning will make sense.
There is only one VPM where Purusha is not shown diagonally.
Ideal allocation of space.
An alternative solution for a small house.
Keep the middle empty, while it is possible to stay and live in the ring around it for a long time.
Traditional 'kosas' layouts of township, villages and towns.
Waves of energy represents vibrations.
The odd is with the odd in rhythm - in harmony - while the even is with the even.
"The basic terminology used in Vaastu Shastras, such as Vastu, Vaastu, Vaastu Purusha and Vaastu Purusha Mandala, which have already dealt extensively with the scientific significance of Vaastu Purusha Mandala, has been written in a language easily understood by an ordinary person. As for the other terms such as Kaala Purusha, Taala Purusha, Praasaada Purusha, Naatya Purusha and Sangeetha Purusha, discussed at length by Dr. V. Ganapati Sthapati.
I would now like to make a special reference to the popular view of the Vaastu Purusha Mandala, which was also encountered by ancient Shastras such as Brihat Samhita (5th century), Vastu Vidya, Agamas and the Purana. The Puranas are considered a historical epic of ancient India in the context of Vaastu. The puranas are, of course, full of moral themes, articulated in historical forms, in mythological language, which, in their narrative, record certain historical events and the cultural life of ancient people. Such things need further study and proper interpretation, especially with regard to the technical materials we come across in the Puran literature.
The ancient writers of the Puranas also recorded technical procedures that are similar to those written in the vaastuastras and sometimes supplement those missing in the vaastu texts.
Thus, their ancient writers also preserved certain scientific materials that greatly helped them to understand certain complex problems of origin, the evolution of concepts, and their material representations.
In the Skanda Purana, for example, one can meet time as the causal element of the universe and the concept of the objects of the universe.
At first, neither the Vaastu nor the Agamic texts, nor the literature from other sources — even in the Vedas — could be accessed in as much detail as those recorded in the Skanda Maha Puranas. This discovery made it possible to understand the Mayan Aintiram, where a detailed description of the science of time and space can be found.
It is to be understood that the Vaastu Purusha Mandala, as expressed in the texts mentioned above, denotes the appearance of the ancient space and spatial Forms from the ancient energy, which is the ultimate and the absolute.
It can be stated that the explosion of energy with tremendous heat (Kaalaagni) and the consequent appearance of “akasa” or “akasa bhuta” is the theory of the Big Bang in India.
The Vaastu Shastra, with which the only scientific dissertation was born from Indian genius, is no wonder that it deals with a scientific phenomenon like this, deeply, albeit in mythological language, and extends it further to the unique science of Vastu and Vaastu.
According to Brihat Samhita, who is considered to be older than the Vaastu Sastras, it is mentioned as the story of a BHUTA, a demonic force that provoked a severe uproar, spreading the whole emptiness with what is commonly called celestial space, or Akasa.
It is also said that the celestial lanterns (planets) called “Devas”, frightened by the terrible shape and dining noise of Bhuta, gathered their strength and suppressed the demon. The demon fell to the ground with indignation and face down. The devas occupied certain parts of the demon's body. Unable to bear the weight of the Devaganas, the demon hid in the belly of Lord Shiva and prayed to him with his head in the northeast corner. Freeing him, Lord Shiva has given him a blessing that he will be the guardian god of the built forms, and all people will worship him when they begin construction activities and when they solemnly enter the house. Almost every text written today in the name of Vaastu Shastra encounters this kind of story.
Furthermore, it is said that this is a demon called Vaastu Bhuta, and sometimes Vaastu Naga, Vaastu Nara in other works lies within a square, with folded limbs, covering the whole space.
It follows from this mythological story that the Vaastu purusha mandala is an abstraction of space and its qualities in miniature form, and also indirectly means that this miniature space is the first manifestation of unmanifested energy.
That the Vaastu Purusha is all-pervading is indicated by the extensions and folds of the various limbs within the square field.
Occupying different parts of the body, the Devaganas add another dimension to the concept of the Vaastu Purusha diagram.
This is a miniature diagram of the universe. Celestial beings like Surya, Agni, Varuna, Vayu, Kubera and other similar divine beings were included in the Vaastu Purusha arrangement complex.
In this particular miniature universe, we could identify them with the forces of nature who have taken on the subtle material form of sound and light with eight gunas, each representing a particular illuminating square. These gunas are native to the unit and should be disputed by scientific analysis. These are taken into account in the analyzes and the windows are adequately positioned during the design process.
This employs the metaphor that suggests that the essence of the universe that occupies the entire cell is the energy cell.
It also indicates the various subtle points of the energy cell that later germinate into material form. It is exactly like the core of the Banyan tree, which holds the properties and shape of the future Banyan tree.
In short, it is a complex cell of energy and matter.
This can be repeated as the “Nirguna” aspect of energy, which, while changing into the “Saguna” aspect, receives the qualities represented by celestial beings. There are the subtle qualities expressed by different celestial bodies in different parts of Vaastu Bhuta.
This means that we can say that all manifestations of manifestation, the flooding of the universe, have certain good and bad qualities that are firmly integrated into the obvious material form. That is, neither coarse nor subtle energies are free of positive and negative qualities.
Nirguna is harmless, while Saguna is generally harmful.
In other words, kinetics has good and bad effects on human life, while potential is free from evil effects.
The purpose of the Vaastu shastra is to understand the qualities of man and to restore the Nirguna status of “Saguna Vaastu” even on the rough level.
Therefore, Vaastu and Agama Shastras encourage the experience of “potential” or “nirguna”. The experiment is ‘nirguna upasana’ as prescribed by yogis.
For example, if the wind is light, it is a breeze and gives a calming effect to all living things on Earth. The same wind hurricane swirling wind intensifies a catastrophic impact on human life and settlements.
In other words, the Universe in which we live is full of good and bad energies that we try to avoid or repel with our spiritual efforts.
One such spiritual creation is the “building,” which we are meant to protect against the effects of the forces of nature and subtle levels of evil.
The philosophers talk about Nirguna Brahman and Saguna Brahman. The Vaastu Vedas speak of Vastu Brahman and Vaastu Brahman (Vastu Purushan and Vaastu Purushan). Religion speaks of Nishkala Brahman and Sakala Brahman. Jiva Atman and Paramatman are terms used by the Vedantins. Potential and kinetic energies are the words of modern science. Fine energy and material energy are the words of Prof. Einstein. These are almost synonymous. In the science of Vastu Vedik, Brahman’s Saguna aspect is responsible for all the good and bad that people have to face in everyday life. We are exposed to all kinds of negative and positive qualities of Saguna Brahman. The Vaastu shastra, aware of these two aspects of Nirguna and Saguna, successfully tried to eliminate the negative aspects and bring people into the atmosphere of Nirguna Brahman in the built space. The Vaastu shastra approach to spiritual strength, peace and prosperity is scientific and mathematical.
This means the eternal validity of the Vaastu principles.
The Vaastu Purusha Mandala is an illuminated square in two dimensions and a cube in three dimensions. It is the physical form of tiny particles of primordial energy. It is called ‘VINKARU’, meaning SPACE-BEAR or EGG.
In other words, it is a fetus of microscopic size.
The huge space is full of countless particles of Karu. This is what resides in our hearts, which we call “JEEVA” or “JEEVATMAN”. This is referred to as 'daharakasa' (fine space), 'antarakasa' (interior), 'ahavin' அகவிண் (inner akasa) and 'Ullam' உள்ள ம். These words are often used in the Vaastu tradition.
There is another concept that as long as the Earth is a branch of space, the Earth is full of tiny energy particles. The spread of subtle space into coarse space (Earth) led the traditional scientist to theorize that the universe at its original level was the tiniest particle that has the quality of calm or peace.
The earth itself should have been a cube before it spun on its own. Therefore, it turns out that all the particles of the coarse material are spherical in the final plane.
That Vaastu Purusha, the embodied energy cell is rectangular, is confirmed by the statement that:
Vaastu Purusha Chaturasra Samsthaha.
Its meaning is that Vaastu Purusha lies in a square. This is stated by Vaastu Vidya, the text on housing architecture.
How and where it comes from is contained in an Agama text called ‘Marichi Samhita’ of the order ‘Vaikhanasa’.
This yoga is subject to the practice of performing Pranayama, where we inhale and exhale prana or the breath of life to a certain extent.
'प्राणायामेन विक शित हृद्क मलान्तराकाशे वैश्वानर शिखामध्ये चतुरश्रं हे माभं बिन्दुनासह'
"Praanaayaamena vikasita hrid kamalantarakase lapswanara shikha madhye chaturasram hemabham binduna saha".
"When we inhale and exhale the breath of life, the space in the heart expands, from which arises the cosmic fire (in a bluish tint), at the tip of which the bond (a particle of energy or light) is angular and golden in hue."

Veda Vyasa's Bhagavata, makes mention of Sthaapatya Vedam as one of the Vedas that emerged from the land of Bharat in the remote past. It also makes mention of another Veda - Pranava Veda - that existed earlier to other Vedas such as Rig, Yajus, Sama, Atharvana and also Ayurveda, Dhanurveda, Gandharva Veda and Sthapatya Veda. What is further gathered from the quotation is that there were five vedas, not four or three, which we are aware of today.
"एकएव पुरा वेदः प्रणवो सर्व वाङ्मयः" Eka eva puraa vedaha pranavo sarva vaangmayaha - This means that there was only one Veda called Pranava in the remote past. Shilpi tradition holds another set of five Vedas such as Sabda Veda, Gandharva Veda, Natya Veda and Sthapatya Veda with Pranava Veda as the primary source
(இயல், இசை, நடம், கட்டிடம், பிரணவம் ). There is also a traditional saying that Vedas are too many.
"अनन्तो वै वेदः", 'ananto vai vedaha'.
Bharata Muni, in his Natya Shastra establishes that Natya is also a Veda.
The Pranava Veda is the first Veda and the source Veda that contains a commentary on 50,000 verses in the Mayan 893 verse Aintiram.
Dr. V. Ganapati Sthapati explains: There is much evidence in both Tamil and Sanskrit works, particularly in Srimad Bhagavatam and Skandam, of the distant existence of Pranava Veda.
This Veda was later called the science of vastu (pure energy) and vaastu (embodied energy), which is becoming increasingly popular around the world today.
The Pranava Veda clarifies the science of Pranava, which is the scientific study of all-pervasive material.
The Pranava Veda describes and explores the science of how the invisible substance (Paravastu) of the universe is transformed and manifested into the forms of visible matter (Vaastu).
Atharva Sheershopanishad mentions the term "Pranava" as "ongara" - the all-pervading material.
दे ब्रह्मणी वेदितव्ये शब्द ब्रह्म परं च यत्। शब्दब्रह्मणि निष्णात : परं ब्रह्माधिगच्छति ॥
Brahmam is ONE. But it manifests itself into two forms one is Sabda Brahman and the other is Para Brahman. He who understands Sabda Brahman will alone be able to understand Para Brahman. (The first is Vaak, the aural and the second is Artha, the visual.)
Vaagartha and Padaartha are the two terminologies which signify the existence of two Primary substances, namely Sound and Light.
The light vibrates giving rise to sound space. Hence, Artha Brahman (Param Porul - Para Vastu) in the Moolam, the Primary Source material for all the visuals and aurals.
Poet Kalidaasa, invoking Paarvati and Parameswara compares them respectively with Vaak (word) and Artha (form) as in the concept of Ardha Naareeswara - a unified entity of subtle energy and Subtle Matter.
बागाविव सभ्यृकृती वागर्थप्रति पत्तये
जगत : पितरी बन्दे पार्वती परमेश्वरी
The above is the keynote of Sthapatya Veda, inherited and preserved by the Sthapatis and Shilpis of Jamboo Dweepa and Bharata Varsha.
- Dr. V. Shri Ganapati Sthapati:
Building Architecture of Sthapatya Veda
VASTU REVA VAASTU
Geometrical illustrations of
Subtle energy changing into Gross energy
*Traditionally the area of the Primal square is 64 modular spaces. Areas of square and that of circle are spatially equal. The square turning into circle without undergoing any change in its spatial measure is a geometrical proof of 'अहं ब्रह्मास्मि' "I am Brahman" and E=mc².
Transformation of Vastu into Vaastu
VASTU = VAASTU; E=mc2
"The subtle energy is a square two dimensionally and a cube tri dimensionally. It is so at subtle level but spherical at gross level. Measurewise they are one and the same. The Vaastu Purusha Mandala is the unified field of energy and matter.
This is the nature of the 'ultimate and the absolute' - called Vastu, meaning 'substance', 'essence' or 'existence'.
Can I call Vastu as Brahman and Vaastu as Braahman? Shilpis designate them as Vastu Brahman and Vaastu Brahman and also as Vastu purusha and Vaastu purusha. Scientifically and mathematically Vastu = Vaastu. Energy & Matter = Matter & Energy.
It is Vastu that metamorphoses into Vaastu. This Vastu is pure energy and Vaastu is embodied energy. We are all Vaastus and that which resides in us and around us is Vastu. Can we accept this as the scientific interpretation of अहं ब्रह्मास्मि 'I am Brahman' तत्वमसि 'You are that?'.
Yes, absolutely correct.
The Vaastu formula of वस्तुरेव वास्तु runs parallel, in one sense, to the Einstenian formula of E = mc2 where 'E' is pure energy (Vastu) and 'mc2' embodied energy (Vaastu). 'E' is again energy wherein lies matter (m) fused into 'one' and 'mc2' is material energy wherein lies 'E' fused into 'one' with 'matter'.
(Infact or scientifically speaking both Vastu and Vaastu are matter, the former being subtle and invisible and the latter gross and visible.)
Indian science explored 'E' and came down to or blossomed into 'mc2', where it created all hings of utility, beauty and serenity and in human context, all forms from hut to mansion, village to city layouts, vehicles and furniture.
These are all mc2 interpreted and created materially in different forms. Even sound forms - articulated words - also change into aural material forms like visual material forms.
Now, let us examine mc2 where 'm' is matter or mass and 'c' is velocity of light. It is clear that because of the speed of light, the 'matter' associated with light turns into energy. Do you want to call the resultant power, the electromagnetic energy?
The traditional terminology is Vaastu Purusha or Kaala Purusha, meaning material energy or product of Time in terms of Space.
But Vaastu science reveals something more and something tangible which we have discussed in the foregoing pages. That is, the subtle particle of energy, or particle of space is a square. I interpreted elsewhere, that this primal square is the primal manifest form of the unmanifest. From the modern scientific stand point, it may be interpreted and confirmed as the unified field of energy and matter.
Now, what I gather from mc2 is that, it may be stated as m (c x c) which means m where the square, in Vaastu language is 'the Vastu / Vaastu Purusha Mandala'.
('वास्तु पुरुषश्चतुरश्र संस्थः'). This indicates the intrinsic order and the core structure of the live cell (human cell) or structure of OM light that emanates from the absolute energy.
This is the subtle material square mandala of purusha. Every such particle of square space of which the vast space is filled with is a square - a mini Vaastu Purusha mandala. This square has the side of 1,86,000 miles according to today's measure of the speed of light.
From this I would even go to the extent of saying that the universe is a cube of 1,86,000 x 1,86,000 x 1,86,000 cubical miles taking matter as 'one' unit and at one particular point of time. This can be proportionately reduced to a particle also, which particle of space is the Paramanu-Space created by Paramanu-Time, which is the fundamental unit of time (speed of energy) at the time of the Big Bang, and still continuing in the same Time-Space.
From the foregoing discussions it must be clear that Mayonic Science is valid today. But Mayan has gone further deep into the aspect of how E changes into mc2, how Vastu turns into Vaastu, by what measure it has changed itself into gross material form and how this science could be applied in the creation of houses, mansions, towns and cities and also so many other objects of utility and grace.
The cream of the scientific enquiry into the process of Vastu (E) turning into Vaastu (mc2), is the creation of 'the creator' himself in human form, which, we of the Indian culture, worship in the Temple and the Temple form itself which is also created according to the same formula. The Temple and the idol in the Temple, are of the same mould, mathematically.
Hence one upanishad came to establish this scientific concept of a Temple form, as the form of the Divine Purusha.
प्रासादं पुरुषं मत्वा पूजये त् मन्त्र वित्तमः 'Praasaadam purusham matva pujayet mantra vittamaha'. Hence the epithet प्रासाद पुरुष 'Praasaada purusha' (enshrined energy).
So it is said that the Temple is not merely the home of God, but the form of God as well.
Along this scientific line, the 'Vaastu Purusha Mandala', the layout of Temple itself came to be worshipped first in the scheme of agamic rituals. This is called Mandala pooja or Vaastu shanti. Is this not the primal manifest form of the unmanifest, warranting the worship of the 'mandala' first and foremost?
This sloka is not only a prayer, but also reveals what a 'built space' would confer upon the occupants. This is 'Space-therapy' as understood, implied and applied in the design of the buildings in general.
In the accompanying drawing this is geometrically illustrated. This is self explanatory. Hence no more words to paint the process of transformation from subtle to gross or from E to mc2."
Dr. V. Shri Ganapati Sthapati:
Building Architecture of Sthapatya Veda
"Architecture is the zenithal achievement of mathematics"
"Kattikad kalaiye kannakkiyal uchi."
"கட்டிக்காட் கலையே கண்ணகியால் உச்சி."
Every visible phenomenon is accompanied by an invisible study, according to which Vastu and Vaastu - from Vastu to Vaastu and from Vaastu to Vastu - transform - from fine to coarse and from coarse to fine.
The cause and effect analysis goes back to the cause, through which the effect is rearranged in order to achieve the best benefit for humans.
This process of alleviating fate is "AYADI".
Ayadi is a secret aspect of Vaastu science that takes into account the birth star of an individual in order to shape the habitat - because everyone is born under a certain star that influences their life on Earth.
The building is a living organism, on whose lap one must find shelter.
The star required for the birth of this organic shape is calculated by the designer so that man can coexist with the shape so constructed in order to enjoy perfect peace and happiness.
"Ayadi Suddhi" (purified measure) ensures material well-being and the spiritual (spiritual) well-being of the residents.
Other various spiritual and material benefits also result from such Vaastu-based structures.
The end result of Vaastu is spiritual peace and bliss.
Six+1 aspects have to be considered under "Ayadi".
These are "Aya", "Vyaya", "Yoni", "Vaara", "Nakshatra" (birth star) and "Amsa".
These aspects are called "Varga", hence the meaning of the group is "Ayadi Shad Varga".
AYA - income, benefits, linear measures (Aayaama)
VYAYA - expenses, consumption
YONI - direction indicating the flow of energy, Prana
VAARA - one day of the week
NAKSHATRA - star
AMSA - quality, future
+ AYUL - lifetime
There are two other "Ayaadi Ganana" (calculations) that take 10 and 16 aspects into account. These are called Dasaayaadi and Shodasaayaadi.
In the case of temple structures, the Ayaadi Ganana includes the main donor (sponsor) star, the "Naama Nakshatra", the name of the city or village, and the "Swami Nakshatra", the star of the deity who rules the temple proposed for design.
Similarly, Ayaadi Ganana is used to calculate the height of the idols to be placed for worship.
Buying idols from the markets for installation and worship can negatively affect donors and worshipers for the purpose of worship.
कृषक तुस वस्तूनां सर्व सम्पत्कराकम् आषादिभिकुषेतं घन्मानं तत् तत् भवेत् अपेतं अपेतं सर्वदोषं स्थात् तस्मात् आयादि सम्युत्
- Agastya Sakaladhikaara.
The application of aayaadi principles for arriving at relevant measures bestows prosperity on the door of the Vaastus - be it a dwelling house, temple or an imagic form.
If not applied and measures purified, all sorts of problems would arise. Hence aayaadi ganana should be carried out and correct and relevant measures ascertained and made use of in the creation of objects of Vaastu.
