What is this deep-structure that surfaces time and time again?

For us in India, the answer goes back thousands of years. To the Vedic seers, the manifest world was only a part of their existence; there was also the world of the non-manifest. The forms and events of the perceived world are significant only to the extent that they help us undertand the nonmanifest layers that lie beneath. Magic diagrams, called yantras, explain the nature of the cosmos. Of these, the Vastu- Purusha Mandala forms the basis of architecture. It has the potential for infinite applications and adaptations in the making of houses, palaces, temples and even cities.
