Tittle of this course is “Green Vastu”.
Many past students have asked this question, that why it’s called Green as Vastu?
The answer is, this ancient Vastu knowledge was known as “Sthapatya Ved” or Sthapature Ved”. This knowledge was available in India nearly 5000 years ago. At that time, Life of living of people was simple and without toxic and outgassing materials. Also they did not have “Climate change” problem as we have. So building materials has change drastically as well environmental qualities have change. Due to this reasons we have titled this course as “Green Vastu” and you will learn about how to apply residential design ideas with modern building design in this course. One of the uniqueness of this course is, few years ago, Vastu consultant in India, used to do hand calculations using ancient Vastu formulas. We have been able to design Vastu home applet and Vastu fence applet so students don’t have to spend more than few minutes to get house and fence proportion as in past they used to spend some time more than a day.
More than 1000 students have learn this course in USA and in the world. After completion of this course, we recommend to learn “Green Vastu Diploma course” to gain more Green Vastu knowledge.
