Overview


Feng shui, the ancient Chinese art and science of finding harmony with nature, has become widely adopted in the West. Like Buddhism, which migrated from India eastward, feng shui is recognized by Eastern scholars as having originated not in China but in India, where it is referred to as Vastu Shastra, or the science of architecture. In Vastu Living, Kathleen Cox introduces readers to the art, science, and practice of vastu. Cox explains vastu's origins in the Vedas, its relationship to the Hindu gods, its principles and guidelines, and its traditional uses. Vastu Living shows readers how to practice vastu at home and in the workplace--from understanding its teachings on room layout and furniture placement to bringing the divine into every dimension of one's environment.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Vastu, based on the Hindu Veda texts, is the ancient Hindu system for "organizing the spaces in which we live and work for optimum harmony"--a system from which Feng Shui is often said to derive. The book is divided into two parts, with the first part explaining the principles that make up Vastu and the second describing how to incorporate its principles to create a harmonious environment in the home or office. Purchase if there is an interest in a holistic, spiritual approach to interior design. Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.\
