Two Things Required For Awakening

This video is a discussion with an eminent Vedic scholar who understands the pre-sanskrit Vedic language as taught by the 125 year old Chatur Vedi from Bangalore.  The gentleman in the video is Sri Sudhaakara Sharma.  The focus of this discussion is the concept that two things are necessary for awakening.  Proper conditions and simplicity forms the basis of this idea.  Dr. Mercay discusses the concept of specific Vaastu principles that create the proper condition for awakening (measurement and orientation, etc.).    Sri Sudhaakara Sharma  discusses the concept of simplicity (you don’t need a big, fancy place to reach enlightenment – it can be a hut).  Dr. Mercay points out that the simpler the Vaastu building the more the proper conditions are available to the inhabitant.  Not mentioned in the video is the idea of having a proper “Vastu Temple Cottage” build on ones own property.  These buildings as simple and pure Vastu.

Dr. Mercay asks to continue the inquiry in an earlier discussion regarding the meaning of the names of the Pada Devatas in the Vaastu Purusha Mandala based on ancient Vedic Language.  Sri Sudhaakara Sharma whodiscusses the meaning of the name Ishwara..  He says that it means “One who is the richest – richest in all ways.”  But more than that, richest in awakening – Divine bliss.

Not mentioned in the video is the concept offered by Dr. Mercay that the Pada Devata called Ishvara in the Vaastu Purusha Mandala brings about this ultimate kind of wealth to the inhabitant of the house as they live over time in the building.  More will come at a later date on the meaning and energetic influence on humans of the Pada Devatas in a Vaastu building.

Commentary on Vastu Pooja and Vastu Shastras

On April 22 we did two Vaastu Pujas for houses to be built in Patagonia. I mentioned this in an earlier post. I am offering you here an explanation of the puja and a bit about the knowledge that I have been involved with for a number of years. I hope you enjoy it and share it.
