Description
About the Book
Though there has been considerable interest in vastusastra in recent times and the orientation aspects of vastusastra have been often discussed, little is known of the essential elements that constitute vastusastra and its scientific application in the present day. Based on extensive research, the work, Vastusastra attempts to address this aspect. Examining comprehensively the subject of vastusastra: its conceptual roots in Silpasastra and its later evolution as dealt with in the Vedas , the Epic literature, Arthasastra, literature on ayurveda and Kamasutra literature, the volume analyses technical aspects of vastusastra by concentrating on the essential elements (angas) of vastusastra which involve decision-making and actual construction methods, art of engineering and role and responsibilities of engineers, and aspects related to land materials and rituals associated with use of building after its construction. It discusses the eco-friendly life style of the ancient Indians based on vastusastra principles. Giving minute attention to details, it focuses on the application of vastusastra in the present-day society - how the vastusastra principles can be scientifically applied and the potential of application of vastusastra keeping in view modern trends in architectural science and civil engineering.

The book will be useful for students and scholars of architecture and engineering and those interested in vastusastra.

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
