In the midst of the desert sand stands the gigantic structure of the great Pyramid of Giza with the tomb of the Emperor Khufu or Cheops. It would have taken over 2,300,000 blocks of stone with an average weight of 2.5 tons, each a total weight 6,000,000 tons and a height of 482 feet (140m) to create this engineering marvel.
Did the Egyptians know what they were doing? It looks like they were very sure about what they were doing and the results they wanted out of this geometric structure.
‘Pyra’ means fire and ‘Mid’ indicates the energy levels resonating at the mid point. In literal terms what is a pyramid? Pyramid (from Greek “pyramidos”) is a geometrical object whose base is a polygon (3, 4, 5, etc.) and whose sides meet in one point known as the apex of a pyramid. Mathematically, pyramids are projections of hemispheres and the famous Pyramid of Cheops in Egypt, in its proportions and location is perfectly related to the dimensions of the earth.
The Pyramids have been known from the ancient times as a powerful design that connects energy forces and its shape is identified with good geometry having healing qualities.
If you observe the energy flow pattern in a pyramid or map using Kirlian photography you will see that broadly there are two kinds of phenomenon. Firstly a concentration of energy that takes place around the vertical axis passing through the apex of the pyramid (at one third the height from its base) and secondly, an energy coming out of the summit of the pyramid in a spiral form.
It is obvious that the Egyptians were aware of energy patterns and had used this knowledge to build a proper tomb to ensure that whatever was placed at a height of one third from the base would remain fresh. This was the ‘King’s chamber’ and intended to preserve the body of the king. The effect of structures and the impact on human beings and energy levels was the basis of such structures, which in modern day terminology is known as Geo biology or Bio Geometry.
Geo biology or Bio geometry are studies of the effect of structures and dimensions on the occupants, their energy levels and how it affects them. This is an essential and most important part of any Vaastu or Feng Shui treatise.
What is energy all about and how does it affect the lives of the occupants in a structure? Well, the scientific definition of energy is the ability to produce an effect. So our feelings, thoughts and vitality are all energy. The structures and the environment, including the décor and furnishings affect the energy levels in a premises so a harmonious shape, supportive structure and environment ensures free flow of energy in and around the occupants.
The impact of geometrical shapes on human energy systems has always been universally recognized. This awareness gradually disappeared and our ‘modern’ approach is to consider these ancient forms either as symbolic art without function, or attribute them to magical practices.
Everything in nature has shape and everything has energy. Bio Geometry deals with a very specific kind of relationship between shape and energy. It deals with shapes that bring balance into energy fields. Bio Geometry is a design language through which you can design anything, and use it in any activity in your life.
Do Bio Geometry, Vaastu and Fengshui have commonality?
The Principles of Vaastu have semblance with the principles of Quantum physics and emphasize that ‘Everything Vibrates & Pulsates’. It also asserts the notion through Vedic Philosophy that ‘Everything is interconnected’. Vaastu had a great impact in the design of ancient temples and architecture in early civilizations and its influence is still prevalent in modern times. Vaastu principles are essential to ensure that structures and their geometry are supportive to the occupants to ensure a free flow of energy in to the home and in turn health and prosperity by generating the right Bio energy fields.
Feng Shui, the ancient Chinese Art of space design has the same basis and the most important factor is to bring in what is known as ‘Life force’ or ‘chi’ energy into the premises which empowers the occupants with a positive feel.
Feng Shui has been adjusting the environment for thousands of years by adding or subtracting items to create smoother and harmonious energy. A proper understanding of the five elements, its influence on the occupants gives an insight in designing our living space more harmoniously.
Research and experiments have shown that pyramids have excellent healing power and it was found that:
- Water placed in a pyramid enclosure loses chlorine and generally tastes better
- Plants grown under the pyramid grow about twice as fast in their early life
- Food kept under the pyramid will stay fresh for two to three times longer than uncovered food.
- Razor blades are kept sharper longer if placed under a pyramid between uses
For purpose of experimentation one could try making a pyramid out of materials like cardboard, copper and stone. However, good energy conductors such as copper seem to aid better energy flow.
The position of the pyramid is also an important factor. With a 4-sided pyramid, if one of the pyramid sides should face True North, the energies within the pyramid are much stronger .The energies seem to be most effective at about one third of the height within a pyramid.
Traditionally the upright angle of the large pyramid at Giza in Egypt has been used as a template for pyramids. This angle is around 52º, but one could experiment with an angle of 58.55º (42,1º the angle of the corner upright to the ground) as it has been found to be more calming and also good for healing.
It’s not surprising that the ancient Indian Saints or Rishis (monks or gurus) were fully aware of the miraculous power of pyramid and its relative geometry. You will observe that many temples have adapted a Pyramid like design in construction of the building and roof of the main sanctum. Prior to this the Rishis (spiritual saints) have used the calculations and geometry of a more advanced Pyramid design in creating various energy generators known as ‘Yantras”. The most powerful of them all is the SHREE YANTRA, which from the scientific angle was nothing but a kind of PYRAMID.
Yantras date back to the 3000 year old tantric tradition. A yantra is the yogic equivalent of the Buddhist mandala. The Sri Yantra is a configuration of nine interlacing triangles centered around the ‘bindu’ (the central point of the yantra), drawn by the super imposition of five downward pointing triangles, representing Shakti – the female energy and four upright triangles, representing Shiva – the male energy. These form a multi level tier and the apex acts as the point of generator.
Miniature versions of Shree Yantra and Pyramids are now being used very effectively for balancing the “Chakras” in the human body, VAASTU corrections, Astrology, Color therapy, Spiritual Meditation and Medical Healing.
In India it’s quite common to find homes having a pyramid roof top located towards the centre of the home (known as Bramhasthana in Vaastu), as it is supposed to act as a ‘Bio cosmic generator’ for the entire house.
Adapting designs with proper dimensions and angles in creating pyramids on the roof top of homes or gardens, placing energy generators in the form of small pyramids made of copper at specific weak energy locations and placing the Shree Yantra in a strategic position in the common area of the home or altar can enhance the positive energy fields in a premise and increase the comfort levels of the occupants.
