A 4-day workshop exploring the Science, technology, design and application of the Vaastu Shastras, one of the oldest design systems in the world.

Connect deeply with the Vaastu Shilpa Shastras and their practical applications, and gain insight into the extensive wisdom therein.

Rather than engaging in formulae and fear-inducing predictions, explore the science of Vaastu with Sashikala Ananth, a leading expert in the field.

This is suitable for Architects, students, and others interested in learning about Vaastu. The course will enable the participants to connect deeply with the texts and the field application.



The Perspective:

The Vaastu Shilpa Shastra is one of the oldest design systems in the world. The great cities of Ayodhya, Mohenjo-Daro, and Lanka were designed on its principles. The Vaastu Shilpa Shastras are a compendium of architecture and sculpture that goes back to the Buddhist era in written records, and pre date this by hundreds of years in its understanding.

The knowledge base is available in 64 texts known as the Vaastu Shilpa
Shastras. In addition to this, there are scores of texts in various languages of the Indian sub-continent.

They speak of

The grammar of design and application is contained in terse sutras in the texts.

The enormous field knowledge and experiential data was handed down orally through the Parampara Siksha teaching methods. This is true of all the knowledge systems, including the Vedas.

Till the 16c the entire built environment, as well as the creation of sculptural and craft ware, was under the control of the Vishwakarma, the artisans and the craft communities.

Unlocking the wisdom of these principles and truths requires not only knowledge of the language, but considerable field experience and the ability to transform this knowledge to a contemporary application.

Ms. Sashikala Ananth is such a practitioner, bringing the traditional knowledge alive with her insights into its contemporary relevance.
