Vaastu Shaastra, the Vedic treatise on the principles of design and construction, is more intricate and elaborate than how the texts in circulation today understand it. These books erroneously attempt to provide readymade solutions in the form of drawings for designs of buildings, thereby fixing the architectural expression of the norms.
What makes this book exclusive is its intensive discussions on aspects like typology, form, aesthetics, building elements, materials of construction and the system of proportionate measurement. The study of Vaastu Shaastra in this book is presented not as an assembly of fragmentary pieces of knowledge, but as a complete program for architectural design and sustainable development. It treats Vaastu Shaastra not as a rigid set of rules and directives, but as a huge corpus of knowledge that forms the primary blueprint.
