Book 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...

A sophisticated meaningful update of vastu

I've taught the Vedic texts in the West for nearly 15 years. The author's understanding of the Vedic philosophy is wise, clearly stated, and valuable. I actually have my students read the book to get a good grounding in this Eastern system of belief. The author has also presented a worthy update of vastu that appropriately connects the discipline to yoga and ayurveda. The update also shows the true value of vastu and is the only book on the subject that I have read that treats vastu seriously--as a means to increasing your spiritual, physical, and mental health. This is the essence of vastu. I am looking forward to reading the author's latest book on the subject.

Finally someone understands the essence of Vastu

I've taught Vedic texts in the West for many years. The author presents a cogent, wise, and clearly stated introduction not only to vastu but to the Vedic holistic philosophy. I actually include the title in my students reading list. The author's update of vastu, connecting it to ayurveda, is a wise decision and makes good sense. Vastu is connected to all the other Vedic disciplines and practicing yoga, ayurveda and now vastu can enhance the quality of one's life. I've read many of the new books on vastu, but the author's understanding of this subject is refreshing and true to its Vedic source. I look forward to reading the author's new release.

Worth its weight in Gold

Ms Kathleen Cox has done a commendable task of stringing the pearls of wisdom related to Vastu, Vedas, Yoga, Ayurveda into a beautifully strung necklace. The book will enhance your understanding of Vastu and if applied, make life peaceful and profitable. This is one book that I have read on Vastu that presents Vastu as an Indian art of space management rather compare it to any other similar art. A very well researched effort and written in a lucid manner. It lays the foundation and then build upon it. Also, it provides solutions when you cannot adhere to the recommendations as does happen in real life.Kathleen - Thanks for putting the book together.

Very Insightful on the ancient science of Vaasthu

Kathleen has explained the principles of Vaasthu in a simple and lucid manner. I have been reading a lot about the Vaasthu Shastra (An ancient science of living in your space). I'm happy to see that finally Vaasthu is getting some attention in the west. A lot of people know about Feng Shui but few know about its origination and its link to Vaasthu. This book is surely a must read for any westerner interested in living as per the Vaasthu principles and other people involved the construction business.

Excellent Introduction to Vastu Shastra (Vedic Feng Shui)

Finally someone with a good knowledge base has written an introductory book for Western readers on Vastu Shastra! Thank you, Kathleen, for writing this very helpful book. The information is very useful in creating more harmonious living and working environments. It is also a wonderful companion to studies in Yoga, Ayurveda and Vedic Astrology.
