Vastu Purusha Architectural-Metaphysics

I've chosen a Vastu course for some of my continuing education requirements, because it links the metaphysics with the architecture very nicely. Several of the courses available are being taught by architectural university graduates and professional architects; and at least one of them by an authentically Indian female presenter who has an architect's education, which is the course I've chosen.

Currently enjoying some fanciful historic story-telling from ancient times, with personification of evil and good within architectural structures, and finding that there are interesting universal truths within these ancient concepts that continue to be relevant.

The underlying theme, it seems, is that there is an enormous underlying energy in any building which, if not controlled, can result in negativity; gossip between co-workers, arguments in the family, bringing negativity back home through the front door from office stress, etc. And, as well, there are things which can physically happen, such as unplanned maintenance and repairs, for example.

The ancients personified this negativity as an enormous entity.

To counter this negativity, the ancients personified the devas as being small yet numerous in comparison; something like the divine within all people who live in a house or work in an office, as well as customers and clients coming in through the front door. The devas tied down the negativity, by working together, like the Lilliputians in "Gulliver's Travels".

Sort of like, in a western concept, a lot of guardian angels overcoming an enormous demon by working together.

Of course, we the people in the house and the people in the buildings and the customers and clients coming through the door represent these Lilliputianesque guardian angels.

But the ancients went a little farther.

They actually honored the strength and power of the negative forces at three points during the construction process: at the groundbreaking, when the front door was installed, and at the completion of the construction project. This was like a pay-off, so the negative forces would be acknowledged and thereby agree to stay tied down.

Fascinating story.

The universal truth: there is negativity underlying every building situation, and it's up to us to overcome this negativity by working together harmoniously.
