Woman reading 'Vastu Shastra Explained' paperback

My book Vastu Shastra Explained paperback has been published. I have included six sample Vastu-compliant house plans (for traditional Kerala-style houses) in the book. In two paperbacks, an English translation of an abstract of Vastu Vidya has been added as annexure. An abstract of Vastu Vidya is available as a free PDF download. It is an English translation of an abstract of Vastu Shastra found in the public-domain off-copyright Matsya Puranam.

The ebook is also available on other digital stores such as Apple Books, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, Scribd and Vivlio. The ebook can also be borrowed for a fraction of this price from public and school libraries.
