background on Indian science of architecture and design

Writing this book has been a mystic journey for me. I came upon the teachers and the helpers on this path, each revealed at the time when it mattered the most. For an Indian woman, the threshold to self expression is a hard one, the home and the children, the needs of the family, the roles that one has to play and after all this ,the time one can give to the self becomes very precious! But the path has been deeply uplifting for me and the fun part is that it does not end.It continues even when I am making pickles! I am at present writing a second book that looks at vaastu as a process of celebration and the path to personal transformation. To write I have gathered from the experiences in my life, through the teachings of the yogis and the wise men of the past, to the great teachers of the present , the grand old ladies of my family who held the family together and simultaneously inspired the young ones to walk new paths, and finally my husband who has been my best friend through it all. I have discovered that healing has an inner and outer aspect, the inner demanding a surrender to the self and the outer that takes you on the path of discovering order and resonance with reality all round you.Through the process of living each of us has the power to open the doors to deep healing and joyous relatedness to one's context.Order and harmony is not something out there and achieved through an encounter outwardly, but it is a way of discovering the beauty and resonance between the inner and the outer in our own living spaces.The inner is discovered through introspective processes that reveal the meaning of order that is individual and personal.Designing external spaces that evoke this order in the occupant is the key to healing vaastu.Discovering this in my own practice as an architect has been my path for over a decade.Yoga , vedanta and the vaastu shastras have provided the framework and the discipline on this journey.Iam attempting to share this by way of my books and building designs. This is an ongoing process and the seminars and books become the way to invite others to join in this search.Walking this path means to be part of an ancient journey that renews itself with every seeker who joins in.
Author has worked hard. It is beautifully designed book. Poetry in writing. Congratulation for your success.
