Vastu City Planning—the latest book dealing with the comprehensive restructuring of cities and towns according to the ancient principles of Vedic architecture—is now available on Kindle, through Amazon. (Click here for Amazon in UK.)
Published by the MUM Institute of Vedic City Planning, the full title of the book is Vastu City Planning – In Harmony with Natural Law.* From the book's description on Amazon.com:
''This book contains the most valuable information that exists in the entire field of city planning—it shows us how to build sustainable cities that create a coherent and harmonious influence on their citizens, with reduced crime, for greater success, health, wealth and happiness. It introduces Vastu planning, the world's most ancient and powerful system of city planning, which is based in Natural Law, and has been revived in this generation by the world-renowned sage Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. The design is rich with many colorful illustrations, photographs and renderings.''
The book begins by asking the question on the minds of so many people today:
Cities, and the buildings of which they are composed, should be structures that nourish and sustain every aspect of human life. Is this the case today?
From this point of view, the book gives an overview of the elements of Vedic City Planning and how those elements are a logical, satisfactory conclusion to the current trends that call for more sustainable, healthy and coherent towns and cities. It discusses the why and the how of this most ancient system of structuring the built environment from both an historical perspective and experiential viewpoint.
Most importantly, this book will appeal to both the concerned lay reader as well as being a good introduction for planners, developer/builders and government officials. It has many photos and illustrations.
The book will also be available in iBook format soon.
For those who are unfamiliar with Kindle, as an alternative you can download the software directly to your computer and have the book ''delivered'' there to read. There is no need for an external device. Simply go to: http:// www.amazon.com/ and enter the book title, ''Vastu City Planning'' and search under ''Kindle store''.
