Mayonic Science &amp; Technology 307 (3 CU )Advanced studies in MS&amp;T: Scientific and Spiritual Architecture The focus of this course will be to gain a deeper understanding and appreciation of fundamental texts related to MS &amp; T. The theme explored is the effulgent Space itself is the store-house of energy, and the originating source of objects of the universe...Space substance itself turns into two streams of material form aural forms and visual forms this is the statement on the secret of space science. We use this secret in mathematical form to build temples, homes, villages, towns, music, poetry, dance and sculpture and a myriad of other forms. This course will include a study and analysis of three advanced texts by Dr. V. Ganapati Sthapati: Temples of Space Science, The Scientific Edifice of Brihadeeswarara Temple, and Significance of Vimanam and Gopuram and other assigned text.</p> <p> Summer 2008 Distance learning Mayonic Science &amp; Technology 308 (2 CU) Advanced studies in MS&amp;T: The Mandala of Building Architecture The focus of this course will be to gain a deeper understanding and appreciation for fundamental texts related to MS&amp;T. This course explores the concept that the embodied energy in all material objects is called Vastu Purusha and it is invoked through using principles of MS&amp;T. When its nature is understood and is incorporated into living spaces, this is the zenithal achievement of architecture. The foundational basis of this spiritual science will be discussed in depth. This course will include a study and analysis of the advanced texts Quintessence of Sthapatya Veda</p> <p>12</p> <p>Mayonic Science and Technology 477 / 677 (4 CU) Advanced Cornerstone: The Parts and the Whole (Teleconference) This course provides an advanced exploration of the nuts and bolts of this body of knowledge.

Coursework includes a 30 min 1 hr introductory public lecture on Mayonic Science and Technology and Vaastu Science and Technology. In addition, the student will produce a Professional Portfolio that will serve to demonstrate to prospective clients the principles of the Vaastu Shastras used in Vaastu Architecture and the depth and breadth of an authentic certified consultants training. Mayonic Science and Technology 484 / 684 (4 CU) Advanced Student Portfolio Development (Independent Study)This course is a review and compilation of the body of work accomplished during this Certification Program. The student is asked to revisit their work and produce a complete Student</p> <p>13</p> <p>14</p> <p>15</p> <p>16</p> <p>17</p> <p>18</p> <p>19</p> <p>20</p> <p>21</p> <p>22</p> <p>23</p> <p>24</p> <p>25</p> <p>26</p> <p>27</p> <p>What is Vastu architecture not?</p> <p>woo woo is a no no for seekers ofauthentic knowledge.</p> <p>With respect for all branches of knowledge we place it in categories according to its usefulness to human life. Some are simply fraud, some are amusing in its naive approach, others have limited value. Authentic Vastu architecture is not Indian Feng Shui, not new age woo woo anything, not mixed up or incomplete knowledge of Vastu. Authentic Vastu architecture is not trying to x anything by moving objects around in the building such as mirrors, chairs, tables or selling devices such as pyramids or objects of supernatural powers to correct or enhance some kind of energy.28</p> <p>The perfect mathematics of nature</p> <p>Nature does not create at random</p> <p>Unmanifest energy is made manifest through a process of mathematics and proportions. An exaple: Human body or any organism. Nature knows how to manifest in the perfect way. The key to the perfection is orderliness and specicity according to mathematical laws. The outcome is beauty and functionality. Nothing is at random. Mamuny Mayan knew how nature manifests and used the same formula, thus revealing how to create perfect buildings, that is, buildings that resonate coherence and maximum well being for the inhabitant.29</p> <p>Manifestation processNature manifests from within, from wholeness to parts. Energy manifests as form from within space itself through quantiable steps of frequency. Mayonic science names this process vastureeva vaastu. Likewise, vaastu architecture locates the source of energy in unmanifest space-time and making use of the mathematics of the manifestation process knows BEFOREHAND what quality comes out of specic size and30</p> <p>resonanceThat quality should resonate with the inhabitant of the structure. The source of the individual is his heart and the source of the building is the silent middle point of the structure, its heart. From heart to heart is the resonance manifested through mathematics of frequency just like two tuning forks vibrating in harmony.31</p> <p>Tuning frequencySince nothing is at random, it is the size of the motherwall that tunes the quality, that is, the frequency, of the building. Think of the motherwall as a musical instrument. We tune a string looking for a specic note. The note has a quality and that quality is its frequency. When we have the frequency, the note, we build a scale that is the proportions of the music33 32</p> <p>MotherwallJust like that we dene size of the motherwall and then use specic method to build the scale, the proportions of the building. All organisms have an internal harmony of proportions. The beauty and functionality of the structure we build is absolutely based on the internal harmony of proportions as well as location.33</p> <p>LocationNothing is at random. The heart of the individual is located at the perfect place. No other place is possible. Just like that is the every thing in the building located at the right spot. The silent middle space of the building is the source of the more manifest qualities, the building blocks of all life on earth, air, re, water and earth. 35 34</p> <p>SummarySpecic quality of energy, made manifest by mathematical laws of nature, creating resonance, harmony, with the inhabitant, thus empowering all positive qualities of life. The basis of Vaastu architecture is optimal well being of the inhabitant on all levels of life.35</p> <p>Vastu arhchitecture is an ancient tradition all over the world</p> <p>36</p> <p>37</p> <p>38</p> <p>41 39</p> <p>42 40</p> <p>41</p> <p>42</p> <p>Vastu consultant What does she do?She or he: Makes assessment of the owners needs and desires Finds the most suitable spot for the building Finds the most suitable motherwall for the inhabitants, the basis for the design Supervises and coordinates the process of design Orients the building in the most suitable way Supervises every step in the building process43</p> <p>Assessment of needsThe owner has desires and needs to me met and consolidated against nancial, building regulation and other limitations there may be. Proper assessment of needs of the owner(s) is the basis for successful building project.</p> <p>44</p> <p>Site selectionIt is very important to select a building site that emanates positive qualities such as beauty, fertility, peace, cleanliness et.c. from the earth and surrounding area. The quality of the site is examined by investigation of numerous factors such as soil quality, vegetation, slope of site, flow of underground water, ambience of site et.c.45</p> <p>48 46</p> <p>CalculationFinding the most suitable motherwall involves calculation that is the basis for the forthcoming design of the house that involves, proportions, main entrance, facing of the building towards a cardinal direction et.c.</p> <p>47</p> <p>OrientationThe building should be oriented right on the cardinal directions to be in harmony with the energy grid of the earth aligned to true north. This, as all other aspects of Vaastu architecture, requires high degree of precision.48</p> <p>SupervisionOnce she or he has: found the optimal building spot, designed the building with a team of engeeners and architects and that design has passed quality control assessment by the AUM, coordinating this whole process of design. Then it is the job of the Vastu consultant to supervise the building process, making sure that the building is built ACCORDING TO THE DESIGN.49</p> <p>52 50</p> <p>SupervisionThe process of design involves: Drawings of architecture and engineering that involves structural calculations, electricity, plumbing, heating and ventilation. The process of building involves: coordination of and supervision of all tradesmen and builders that partake in the building process.51</p> <p>Architectural drawingsResidence USA by Bjorn Kristjansson</p> <p>52</p> <p>Residence USA by Bjorn Kristjansson</p> <p>53</p> <p>54</p> <p>55</p> <p>Guesthouse USA by Bjorn Kristjansson</p> <p>56</p> <p>Residence USA by Kristjan Sigurdsson architect</p> <p>57</p> <p>Layout of plot by Kristjan Sigurdsson architect</p> <p>58</p> <p>Residence USA by Kristjan Sigurdsson architect</p> <p>59</p> <p>Residence USA by Kristjan Sigurdsson architect</p> <p>60</p> <p>Residence USA by Gail MacKensie</p> <p>61</p> <p>Residence USA by Gretchen Leary</p> <p>62</p> <p>InspirationAny form of art, be it music, dance, poetry, sculpture or architecture, that has the power to uplift us comes from the same source of life. We can call it simplicity, harmony and beauty and it affects us because it resonates with our source, our heart. You may want to manifest from that source and resonate with that manisfestation and enjoy spiritual bliss.63</p>
