misc_none 3:00 PM  -  4:45 PM Home Insights: Buying, Selling, Living and Vastu Shastra Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
    Contact: Priya Rathnam   508-841-8531   prathnam@cwmars.org
   
Vastu Shastra for the Home 
Home may be where the heart is, but the pursuit for a perfect home has always been a central part of the American Dream!  This brand new seminar aims to explore topics of interest related to our home - our most prized possession, and issues related to living in, buying and selling homes ! 
 
Vastu Shastra is Sanskrit for Science of Architecture. A recent Boston Globe article described Vastu as " based on ancient Vedic texts that describe principles of design for everything from entire communities to temples to individual homes. (“Vastu” is the Sanskrit word for dwelling or building; “shastra” is a teaching.) The idea is to integrate and align the home with nature to improve the life of its occupants" 
 
How does Vastu affect the inhabitants of a home ? Does the direction of the entrance matter ? What does this mean if you are buying or selling a home in Shrewsbury ?
