This book describes the measurement system used in Maharishi Sthapatya
Veda in terms of Group theory. The Vastu measurement system is based on
the square and its eight levels of symmetry. Using the concepts of
modern Group theory, deep principles at the basis of the measurement
system are illustrated in a new light and explain the original
significance of the Vedic measurement system. Measurement based on Vedic
dimensions is an essential part of Vedic City Plannnig since all
architecture requires precise dimensions.
Principles of Vastu Planning explains the origin of this Vedic measurement system.
The second part of the book explains country planning according to natural law in a way
which is most practical and beneficial for its people as introduced by
world-renowed sage Maharishi Mahesh Yogi.
Country planning in accordance with natural law outlines the concept of a global grid based
on latitudes and longitudes which is the basis of Vastu planning at
every scale; housing, village, town, province and whole country. The
smallest scale of planning eventually comes down to a square the size of
a house where the convergence of longitudes can be ignored. This
significance of the square is explained in the first part of the book.
