Explore Vastushastra in the new Millennium. For a long time debate has been going on whether to treat Vastushastra as a science, a statistical statement, metaphysics, or some occult practice. To prove anything conclusively one needs to use all the tools at hand - science, mathematics, logic, Yogashastra, astrology, Ayurveda, etc. It must be understood that modem science, as we know it has developed in the Western world over the last 300 years, cannot be used as the only yardstick for judging the science of Vastu which evolved some 5000 years ago in India. Science has its own importance in its search for truth and for its logical view of events. Current educational practices give all the credit to Western science and dismiss ancient Indian science and Eastern philosophy as occult disciplines and mysticism. We have to break this narrow-minded conditioned thinking process and study Vastushastra with an open mind to demystify its occult garb.
In this book, the authors have stressed the importance of Darshanshastra in Vastushastra studies, since Vastushastra, Yogashastra, astrology, Ayurveda, and Sangeet are sub-branches of Darshanshastra. Learning of Vastushastra becomes simple and interesting with parallel concepts from Yogashastra, astrology, science, and Vastushastra being presented throughout the book. One can have a broader perspective of Vastushastra only through a multi-disciplinary approach, as illustrated in the book.
