 History Of Vastu (Hindi)

 

Anupam Vastu (English) 

 
     
 Lord Vishwakarma is the personified Omnipotence and the abstract form of the creator God according to the Rigveda. He is the presiding deity of all craftsmen and architects. He is believed to be the "Principal Architect of the Universe ", and the root concept of the later Upanishadic Brahman / Purusha.  The foundation of Vastu is traditionally ascribed to the sage Maamuni Mayan (Mahaa-muni Maya, a daanava/demon reformed by tapasyaa/austerities) in South India, and Vishvakarman in North India. Although, Vastu is a million dollar business in the sub-continent of India, it is considered by main stream science as pseudoscience.  Where we live can influence our happiness, wealth, health, and prosperity. The vastu Shastra is the Vedic science of building. When one studies the Vastu Shastra, he learns to create buildings that favorably influence those things that bring us happiness.
