Maharishi Sthapatya Veda®, Vedic Architecture, makes use of the timeless laws that nature employs to structure material creation—laws that maintain every particle in creation in perfect harmony with everything else.

Also known as Vastu Vidya, it is the knowledge (Veda) of establishing form (Sthapatya) that takes into account the solar, lunar and planetary influences on the earth with reference to the north and south poles and the equator.

Of primary importance is the proper orientation (east-facing is most auspicious) placement and proportions of a building to take advantage of these cosmic influences.

In a recent lecture, Vastu architect Dr Christian Schweizer, based in MERU, Holland, presented a fascinating insight into some of the other principles of Vedic Architecture that form the basis of its life-supporting influence and timeless appeal.

Global Good News will continue to feature this article, 'Beauty in Vastu', which is based on Dr Schweizer's lecture and systematically considers these principles of Vedic Architecture, including Smriti—the memory of wholeness, symmetry, orderliness, and refinement.
