Robert E. Svoboda’s Vāstu: Breathing Life into Space addresses the classical Indian art (or science) of architectural form, Vāstu, in a wholly unique way. Instead of presenting lists of rules and architectural principles to which builders and interior designers must scrupulously adhere at all times, the work sensitizes the reader to the dynamics of space, alignment, and form in ever-expanding orbits of individual life. The book allows readers and home builders to understand the complex dynamics of individual, terrestrial, and celestial energetic systems leading to the greater synergy between space, nature and the individual.


ROBERT E. SVOBODA is the first westerner ever to graduate from a college of Ayurveda and be licensed to practise Ayurveda in India. The author of more than a dozen books, he was tutored in Ayurveda, Yoga, Jyotisha, Tantra and other forms of classical Indian lore by his mentor, the Aghori Vimalananda.
