KATHMANDU, March 7: Dr Eike Hartmann, a German national, is an ardent believer of Sthapatya Veda and Vastu Shastra.
He argues that modern cityscape is chaotic and affecting our daily lives. To address it, he proposes developing houses and cities in line with the Sthapatya Veda and Vastu Shastra. “When we build cities as per the Sthapatya Veda, we will enjoy the benefits of the Vedic knowledge,” he says.
Dr. Hartmann was in Kathmandu in the first International Conference on Vedic Science and Modern Science. Pratik Rimal interviewed Dr. Hartmann to know more about Sthapatya Veda and how Nepal could utilize it as the country expands new cities and rebuilds from the earthquake.
Dr. Hartmann is the Chairman of the Board of Directors, Institute of Vedic City Planning, Maharishi University of Management, Netherlands and CEO of Fortune-Creating Homes.
