The Artful Universe : An Introduction to the Vedic Religious Imagination
by William K. Mahony
Mahony, a professor of religion at Davidson College in North Carolina, offers a lively introduction to the 3500-year-old Vedic tradition, which has played a formative role in Indian civilization in general and Hinduism in particular. Central to the Vedic religion, Mahony contends, are the ideas of “transcendent universal order and harmony” expressed through ritual performances and mythic narratives. Using selections from the Vedic writings, especially the Rig Veda and the Upanishads, Mahony demonstrates how the Vedic imagination represents the principle of harmony in the construction of a meaningful world. In three particularly enlightening chapters, Mahony focuses on the poet as the “visionary artist of the verbal imagination,” the priest as the “artist of universal drama and the liturgical imagination” and the “inward seer as enacting the liberating power of the contemplative imagination.” Although Mahony uses sometimes complex literary and philological approaches to the Vedic texts, his thoughtful prose is engaging and draws readers into the practices and history of an ancient religion.

The Vaastu Workbook: Using the Subtle Energies of the Indian Art of Placement
by Talavane Krishna M.D.
Detailed instructions for creating a home that harmonizes with the natural and spiritual energies of its environment. * Unlike feng shui, which favors adding “cures” to cover existing problems, vaastu (like holistic medicine) focuses on fixing underlying problems for the health of the entire system. * By the director of the foremost vaastu center in India. * Includes 100 line drawings to make all the complexities of vaastu understandable to a beginner. Feng shui practitioners are quickly discovering vaastu, the Indian art of environmental design that helps you create a home that is in harmony with the natural and spiritual energies surrounding it. Until now, books on vaastu have told you where to place your doors or ponds without fully explaining the rationale behind this. The Vaastu Workbook presents vaastu as it was meant to be understood–as an interconnected part of the great Indian tradition of sacred knowledge, along with yoga, ayurveda, and astrology. Using hundreds of clear line drawings, The Vaastu Workbook takes you through every conceivable vaastu situation, exploring the dos and don’ts of window and door placement, interior design, street focus, directional facing, landscaping, and much more. Introductory chapters provide a thorough grounding in the basics of Indian astrology, the five elements, and the healing tradition of ayurveda, all of which is necessary to truly understand the details of vaastu. With this knowledge in hand, even a beginner can quickly learn how to design a new home–or renovate an existing one–in order to bring peace, prosperity, and happiness to those who live there.

Vastu Living – Creating a Home for the Soul
by Kathleen Cox
Much like the Chinese feng shui, Indian vastu is an ancient practice of spiritual philosophy and science. By analyzing the orientation of your home and placing your furnishings in an arrangement that best fits your constitution, you can introduce more harmony and tranquility to your life. Vastu Living is designed to help you discover which primary element you most identify with (fire, air, earth, or water) and to create a living or working space that will both inspire and calm you. Author Kathleen Cox, a longtime proponent of vastu and an expert on Indian culture, says “an orderly and harmonious space leads to an orderly and harmonious inner life, which is so necessary for the good health of the body, mind, and soul–and by extension, of everything that exists around us.” In the first half of the book, Cox explains the key concepts of vastu, including descriptions of Indian deities, the elements from which the universe was created, and the positive and negative forces that are in everyone’s lives. “Unless our home is conducive to inward thinking,” Cox says, “we can never really find an everlasting inner peace.” The second half of the book tackles the practicalities of applying vastu to your home and office. Diagrams are included to help you map your space and to consider how to rearrange your furniture (or even swap entire rooms) for an optimal flow of energy and a content soul. Cox quietly and convincingly champions this blend of spirituality and efficiency. Well written and thoughtful, Vastu Living is an excellent introduction to millenniums-old Indian wisdom.

Vedantic Meditation : Lighting the Flame of Awareness
by David Frawley
As yoga gains popularity across the U.S., many people are becoming interested in its traditional Vedic roots. While Buddhist meditation is well represented on bookshelves, there has been little Vedantic philosophy written in lay terms until now. Author David Frawley guides readers through the challenges of cultivating awareness, calming the mind, and practicing meditation according to Vedanta and Hinduism. He examines how cultural knowledge systems in the West lead individuals to disillusionment, and speaks about how meditation can aid in understanding the true nature of one’s thoughts, emotions, and perceptions. Frawley explores meditation support practices such as yoga, mantras, kundalini, and pranayama, as well as the role of gurus, and concludes with a short, more technical essay on self-inquiry.

by Richard L. Thompson
