His last title "Hindu Electional AstrologY' is still the best seller
Muhurt (election) book - a compendium of Vedic Muhurtas. He had earlier
authored "Gauging Practice for Ten Degrees Modified Screw Threads", which is a
pioneering effort in the field of gauging screw threads of drill-stem used in mineral
exploration. He has expertise in quality management in engineering field, & is a
qualified quality assessor. He has delivered numerous lectures in national seminars
on engineering field during his 37 years of Government service. He has invented
eleven engineering products; and obtained Indian Patents for his nine inventions.
Spiritual initiation was given to him by his paternal grandfather,
Pandit Daulat Ram, village Raurian, Hoshiarpur, Punjab, India. He has studied
astrology for over five decades & is admirer of the wealth of knowledge blessed by
Sages & exponents in the fields of astrology & spiritualism. Over a decade back the
author saw a copy of "Visvakarma Prakash" translated in Nagari, mentioning that it
covers Muhurt aspect of Vastu-Karmaas. The treasure of knowledge is hidden in the
treatise - having many Sutras compiled randomly, & cryptic Sutras galore -
attracted deep interest of the author: and hence felt need for decoding it.
It is conviction of the author that study of 'Hindu-Architecture' is
incomplete without 'Hindu-Vastu-Astrology' propagated by our ancient Sages &
exponents. Just like Muhurt is the most useful branch of Hindu-Astrology, 'Hindu-
Vastu-Astrology' forms the base of Hindu-Architecture: as architect cannot proceed
further unless dimensions are approved following cannons of Vastu-Astrology - as
unanimously commended by all the exponent Sages of Hindu-Architecture.
An effort has been made with hope to revive usefulness of Vastu-
Astrology, which was effectively used in the ancient era. The author can be

It is our pleasure & deep satisfaction in presenting decoding of
the divine treatise - Visvakarma Prakash - connoting the true
essence as perceived by the divine architect, the Sage Visvakarama.
This treatise gives treasures of directions on Vastu-Muhurtas, Vastu-
Omens & Vastu-Kararnkaand for all the Vastu-Karmaas - certainly
not available in any Samhita, Muhurt-treatise, Vastu-treatise, Aagam-
Shaastra or Puraana in a consolidated and authoritative manner.
The treatise is attributed to Sage Visvakarma providing interface
between Hindu-architecture and spiritualism. Dicta in the treatises on
Hindu-Architecture proclaim that nothing shall proceed further unless
dimensions are approved complying 'Aayadi-Varga' rules - primarily a
set of six formulae - which has its base in Hindu astrology, & hence
spiritualism. Further the exponents unanimously warn that non-
compliance of the prescribed dimensions have ruinous effects beyond
remedy. Under Vastu-astrology, building is matched with its owner to
examine its suitability & beneficence to its owner; similar to matching of
horoscopes to examine compatibility in marriage - this feature along
with Aayadi-Vargas rules to assess spiritual nature of dwelling, is not
available in any other architecture of the world.
In the decoding, Muhurtas of all the Vastu-Karmas starting from
selection of land, first entering into the land, purification of the plot,
starting digging, starting construction, erection of pillars, erection of
gate (and selection of its direction also), and Griha-Pravesh have been
dealt to the minutest details. The enlightenments in the treatise
certainly qualify it as a compendium on Vaslu-Muhurtas, detailing all
the facets of Muhurtas.
Treasure of omens related to all the Vastu-activities in the
treatise makes it a compendium of Vastu-Omens also. Rules of
decoding omens as detailed in Agni Puraana & Vasantrajshkunam
decipher the omens described in the treatise. The Sage has advised
that one must carefully watch & interpret omens at the initiating
moments of all the Vastu-activities. In addition it qualifies to be a hand-
book on Vastu-Karamkaand as it renders utmost details of Puja-
Samagree, Vidhi-Vidhan, Balis & Mantras galore covering all the
Vastu-activities. Detailing Shalyuddhar & Vedhas to dwellings are
other salient features of the treatise.
In part II of the book mode of checking of cardinal directions,
Aayadi-Vargas, various units of measurements, and numerous
Muhurtas for modern day application have been compiled as ready
reckoner. Part III of the book contains Sanskrit version of the treatise
along with its translation in Devnagari script for those readers who
would like to study original version in Sanskrit also.
Analytical table of contents, comprehensive index & glossary of
terms used, over 180 tables & diagrams, copious exegetical notes
enhance usefulness of this edition.
The author has made monumental efforts for renaissance of
'Hindu-Vastu-Astrology', which for over last one millennium is
practically lost. In the ancient era Vastu-Astrology was integral part of
Hindu-Architecture. We feel proud in presenting for the first time the
decoded version of this treatise, for delight of the students of Hindu-
Architecture, & professional application by specialists in Hindu-
Architecture, Muhurt, Vastu-Karamkaand and & astrology.
