What’s Vastu Shastra and why they call it: “the yoga of architecture”

vastu_shastra_Dalalba

Every time people ask me what my job is and I mention the word “Vastu Shastra”, I notice that almost no one has heard of it. In Europe people know about yoga, have heard of ayurveda, astrology…but Vaastu? Nope! (This is when they ask me if it’s like Feng Shui, but this is a question that I will better answer in another post…) A few years ago, a friend of mine told me that she had found a book about Vastu Shastra in Spanish with the subtitle of “the yoga of architecture”. It made me laugh...

I was very touched, it reflects very well the origin of the conflict between Israel and Palestine for the Holy Land throughout the history. It's great!

Finding Happiness

Today I attached the trailer of a very special film that will soon hit theatres in Europe. This is the story of a journalist doing research on the lifestyle of a spiritual community in the United States, which has centres all over the world, to spread the teachings of yoga. It is in one of these communities of Ananda where I entered fully into the world of yoga. It was in India where I met some of the teachers who appear in this trailer and I must say it was an experience that changed my life completely, leading me towards more...
