Book Description


From The Jacket


In nature's scheme of things, there is birth, growth and death but there is no disease and sorrow. If a person is upset the, at some time or the other, at some place or the other somehow or the other, that person has certainly erred somehow or the other. The present volume is the most authoritative classic of the subject to tell you where you have wronged and to suggest you numerous golden ways to good luck in the most systematic and scientific manner..

It comprehensively explains the various aspects of the subject making a systematic analysis of its facts. This book will help you improve and polish your natural ability as it shows step-by-step-in plains, non-technical language-how to apply the latest discoveries of the human race to your utmost advantage and it also enables you to act your part in life positively and confidently so that you will reap rich rewards in health and happiness. It will definitely bring out the vibrancy and power that lies dormant within you. It ultimately solves the problem of how to match the man to a particular job-and vice versa.

It is an attempt to gather together, to compare and to systematically synthesise the various concepts and heir functions, found in the well-known systems of ancient Indian thought comparing it with the corresponding concepts of western astrology and for making modern astrology richer and more comprehensive than it is a present. Conscious and reflective thoughts offers new vistas to envisage what is most exalted in man and help widen our new horizons.

The author Dr. Jagdish Gautam (born October 23, 1934) as per his horoscope spent his early life in the very sea of sorrow and as such he naturally became keenly interested in Astrology even in his teens. After a 28-year spell of teaching, he got retirement from Govt. service in the H. E. S. rank as the Head of an Institution in 1992 whereafter, he now divides his time between book writing and spiritual meditation. He is dedicated to research work related to spirituality and astrology. He knows fully well that he timeless in you is aware of life's timelessness and knows that yesterday is but today's memory and tomorrow is today's dream i.e. knowing well what he is to write in a particular book synthesizing the wisdom of the East and sciences of the West.

In service and thereafter he was always appreciated very much for his profundity of scholarship, intellectual brilliance, oratorical talents, nobility of character. his deep philosophical insight and unfathomed spirituality attracted the learned and the intelligentsia to a fairly good measure.

He knows that knowledge is your hallo and to keep it burnished we invite you all to avail of the golden opportunity of possessing a set of his books without any further delay. Dr. Gautam's book will surely be acclaimed as a most timely work. In other words, there are the books which work. In other words, there are the books which no talented citizen of the world should like to miss as these all are completely thorough-going and up-to-date than any other previous approaches known to us.





My candle burns at both ends,
It will not last the night
But ah my foes and oh my friends
It gives a lovely light.

If the marriage of a girl is delaying, her sleeping should be arranged in the Vayavia area. She will be married very soon. Green colour is the giver of wealth and good fortune while blue-violet is the giver of peace and pleasure. If you cannot maintain real flowers, you may display artificial bunches on tables, etc. such topics relate to Vastu Shastra and Brahma created in Treta yug "Vastu Purusha" on darker 3rd of Bhadr pad, roundabout which reside 32 gods.

I am aware that yet I am only at the beginning of things, just picking up pebbles on the seashore as Newton spoke about himself once. But the ice has been broken and water has begun to flow. It have read many books on the topic (subject) and I made copious note of whatever I read and this book is, by and large, an expanded version of the notes. Therefore, it can well be called a collection of thoughts on the topic.

Truth itself is the common denominator, , which is the reward in understanding. One of the reasons for writing this book is to follow the rosary thread of mysticism in Vastu Kala. This is the north, star to every student of Vastu Shastra on this vast sea of life. But at the same time I would request my readers simply to enjoy the mangoes and not bother about counting the trees. It will be a pleasant surprise to find even such topics in this book, which you might not have even thought of heretofore. But he must seek. It may not simply be considered as the wedding feast to which all are invited but few endeavour to attend.

I know exactly what it is that I need to write in this book but with some such thoughts in mind that in youth the days are short and the years are long but in the old age, the years are short and the days are long. We make a living by what we get but we make life by what we give as life is to live, to live is to love, to love is to give and to give is to get something as ground breaking always takes place during the life of the man which has to be the focal point of education (attention) for him. And in not too distant a future, you will be convinced of the fact that it is a never-to-be-forgotten telescopic manuscript.

We must therefore steal some time to hop into this heaven of peace to set ourselves athinking that this volume really beggars description and before I proceed to explain the more intricate details of this subject I may declare that I don't want to present any excuse to deny the fact that I have not confined myself to the set theories of any particular school, but I have gathered whatever information this book contains from, I may say, the four corners of the earth.

In the end in sincerely feel that I need offer no other apology for so doing, than that the proof of the pudding lies in the eating. Still.

The greatest truth may lie in the smallest things, the greatest good in what we most despise. The greatest light may break from darkest skies. The greatest chord from even the weakest strings. Best of luck.


A Short Introduction

In Sanskrit vastu ordinarily means a dwelling house along with the plot of land over which a dwelling house is built. Vastu Shastra (science of architecture) means a treatise on dwellings. Vastu is said to be a minor (upveda) veda of atharva veda, one of the four vedas (books of knowledge). Vastu is a practical science that puts optimism in you and makes you say 'I can' in any circumstance. Vastu Shastra ensures the building up of a contented, prosperous and a happy life.

The energy field (element) of the human body (animate) should interact (balance) in harmony or resonance with the energy fields (elements) of the building (inanimate) which ensures the happiness and peace of mind to the residents of the building. The whole world will be a happier place to live in if vastu is applied not only to construction of residences but also to educational institutions, public buildings, religious places, layouts, complexes, and satellite towns. Vastu helps us in achieving successes in every sphere of life. I ts concern is not only material prosperity but also mental peace, happiness and harmony in the family and office. The design of a space should actively stimulate one to feel quintessential qualities of its intended purposes. The dining room should stimulate the experience of hunger, the living room sociability, the study alertness and the bedroom that of rest.

Note: Write down your +ve affirmations 49 times for 49 days and place it in a metal box in the North-West comer of your living room.
