  QUESTION:  Dear Madam, i went through your site and found it very interesting. I am an amateur follower of Vastu. My request :- Any yantra you may suggest for me due to obstacles and delay in my marriage.Thank you very much for a response. Regards, Ritesh ANSWER: Dear Ritesh, If your marriage is delayed, why not befriend the planet Venus, planet of love and a good marriage, and Saturn, who causes delays and obstructions?

The Value of Being Yourself

"You can change the world by being yourself."  Yoko Ono Be your true self. Keep in mind that, as Oscar Wilde said, "everyone else is already taken."

Create beauty around you! Beauty is a requirement in Vastu, a requirement for which I am grateful, since I'm an artist and very inspired and nourished by beauty.

I write about beauty quite a bit in my book Vastu: Transcendental Home Design in Harmony with Nature.  This is a personal Shiva altar in my home. It's a little corner of a bookcase on which I've installed a small Miriam Kasin watercolor painting from 1974 when I was on Vedic Studies Program in Europe with Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. I added an empty organic perfume bottle with a sprig of dried hydrangea in an...
