Editor's Note

We are happy to bring out this collection of papers read at the First Al India Symposium on Vastu held on June 3 and 4, 1995, at the Banquet Hall of the Vidhana Saudha, Bangalore. The Symposium was organized by Raman Rajeswari Research Foundation, Bangalore.

Vastu Sastra, an important limb of Jyotisa or astrology, is the science and study of ancient architecture and engineering. Vastu rules have been followed meticulously in temple and town construction of ancient times. Many temples, and town construction of ancient times. Many in temple, such as the Tirupati Sri Venkatesvara Temple and the Ramesvaram Temple are standing monuments to the profundity and correctness of Vastu principles.

As a result of political convulsions in India, the science of Jyotisa which includes Vastu, was neglected for a long time. Thanks to untiring efforts of Dr. B. V. Raman, Editor, The Astrological Magazine, Jyotisa or astrology is being revived with great interest in the country.

The principles of Vastu are now being explored and applied with excellent results in the construction of residential buildings, including official quarters, commercial complexes, hotels, amusement centres, business premises, public buildings such as schools and hospitals as also industries. In fact, renovation and reconstruction of sick units in accordance with principles of Vastu have led to greater prosperity.

The goals of this Symposium were:
1. To bring before discerning public and intelligentsia the lost glory of Vastu and its relevance to modern times.

2. To present research findings by Vastu scholars which validate ancient Vastu principles.

3. To promote free exchange of ideas on Vastu between scholars of Vastu and modern architects and engineers.

4. To revive and promote a study of Vastu in its application to house construction, public buildings, commercial complexes and construction of temples, gurudwaras and other places of worship.

The fact that the Symposium was held under our banner and was able to bring together for the first time best men in the field on a national level, was a matter of great gratification for all interested in an ancient Vedic culture, especially Jyotisa and its various aspects including Vastu Vidya.

Many of the papers presented by galaxy of speakers on different aspects of science and technology of Vastu at the Symposium could not be included in the Souvenir released on the occasion and have been included in this volume a few of the papers have already appeared in the Symposium Souvenir, but since only a limited number of copies were brought out for the occasion, they have also been included in this volume. We believe these papers will stimulate greater interest in Vastu Amongst modern architects and engineers and impress upon academic bodies the need to include this Vedic science in the engineering course as part of curriculum. We thank all those who presented the papers included in this volume.

The papers have been divided into three Sections "Vastu and Its Relevance to Modern times" (Section I); "Vastu and Jyotisa" (Section II) and "Vastu and Temple Architecture" (Section III). However, it has not been possible to rigidly compartmentalize the papers in terms of content into these three sections and some overlapping has been unavoidable.

Thanks are due to Prof. N. M. Kansaria for his commendable assistance in thorough revision of the Sanskrit quotations and his transliteration of Sanskrit Slokas and terms into the Roman script.

We are thankful to Mr. J. P. Jain of Motilal Banarsidass for having come forward to bring out all papers in a book form.

Testimonials

Our Nandi sculpture arrived today and it surpasses all expectations - it is wonderful. We are not only pleasantly surprised by the speed of international delivery but also are extremely grateful for the care of your packaging. Our sculpture needed to travel to an off-lying island of New Zealand but it arrived safely because of how well it had been packaged. Based upon my experience of all aspects of your service, I have no hesitation in recommending Exotic India.
