Fundamentals of Vedic Healing Architecture (Vaastu Shastra)

with Olga Mandodari Sokolova

October 13 - 15, 2019


“Do you know that you are on the molecular level 99.99% “Empty” Space? You have very little actual matter in you and you have much more Space between the spinning electrons and protons that compose your molecular structure.  Do you know that our scientists calculated the approximate mass of our Universe and found that almost 85% of the mass is missing? Scientists call it “dark matter” and are still trying to figure out what the “dark matter” is. Is it an intergalactic medium called filaments or brown dwarfs or something else?
Would you like to know from the position of Vaastu Shastra more about “empty space”? If you do then you will find in detail that the “empty space” is not empty at all. You will find that the “dark matter” is described as a specific subtle light energy in ancient shastras and you will know much more details about that.  You will know that the subtle light energy is vibrating and pulsating and by doing that it organizes specific energy patterns called Mandalas in the space around us and in us too! Do you know that you need to align your house and your bed with the grid of energy to be more at peace with the environment because you are 99.99% light energy? Do you know that yoga can teach you how to synchronize yourself with the Cosmic Energy? All that you can learn at Sivananda Ashram’s classes and workshops and at Vaastu Shastra.workshop.”

Vaastu Shastra and Good Sleep

Understanding principles of the structure of our Universe is understanding yourself. Science by now already knows that we are more than 99% “empty” space. We are made of atoms and atoms are composed of protons, neutrons, electrons, and “empty” space. This is what science is saying but ancient Vedic scriptures like Vaastu Shastra saying that space is not empty but filled with the subtle energy. This subtle energy is made of Particles of subtle light and sound called Paramanu as mentioned earlier. So this NOT an empty space! This space  or field of energy is actually giving its own energy to everything around us.

Moreover, this subtle (invisible to the naked eye) energy field is not something abstract but according to Vedanta is the consciousnesses by itself. It vibrates, pulsates and emanates subtle light and subtle sound which allows different material particles to appear to in the front of our eyes in the electronic microscopes. There are definite laws of existence, laws of movement of energy (spinning, flowing), laws of manifestation of particles and overall all laws of appearance of all material forms. There are rivers of subtle energy in the space. We need to know about these rules. Vedatna and specifically Vaastu Shastra has a lot to share with you. So we can help ourselves to live our life better and with more joy. Believe or not but if you know at list some basics how great Space-Consciousness works then you can live happier and healthier life. For example, Swami Sivananda in his book “How to Get SOUND SLEEP” on page 36 mentioned, “Sleep with your head toward East. Do not sleep with your head towards North. You can sleep with your head towards West and South.”

Would you like to know why it is recommended to sleep toward East? Watch this video and if you want to know more details about why you need to sleep toward East. Or may be you want to learn how to organize better your space at home and much more then you can also sign up for the upcoming Vaastu Shastra workshop in July at Grass Valley Yoga Farm, Grass Valley, California,
Have a nice sound sleep and very productive day!
