Description
Vastu is the ancient Indian tradition that combines architecture and aesthetics. Resembling the Chinese philosophy of feng shui, Vastu is also a revered, spiritually oriented method of organizing living space so that all details induce harmony between a home's dwellers and the universe. The Vedic practice of sanctifying one's living space is as relevant today as it was when it originated among Indian builders thousands of years ago. Vastu enables readers to put this system to use in today's homes, thus bringing peace, happiness, and success to the dwellers. The author points out the four zones of every home, and explain how they govern their dwellers' mental, physical, emotional, and psychic well-being. Easy-to-use tables and diagrams present techniques for creating a harmonious living arrangement. Detailed instructions guide readers in furnishing living areas and modifying the proportions of floor space, doors, windows, and other room features. Specific materials and construction methods are suggested. Every part of the home is considered, including the foyer, bedrooms, kitchen, living room, storage rooms such as closets and pantries, study or work area, and bathroom, as well as the home's adjoining verandas and gardens. More than 150 illustrations and diagrams are all in color.
