He must possess a scholastic aptitude and a firm grasp over all the Shastra, as his qualification is that of an Acharya2 or teacher, and must "know the ancient authors . . and the ,,~hole country; he must have crossed the ocean of the science of architecture" . 3 He is the "Guru" of the other three experts,4 \\Those instructions are backed by the knowledge and a theoretical base in the Veda, Vastu Shastra and subjects like astrology and mathematics. He is follo\\red \~lith respect by the rest of the team as "to them, it is Vishvakarman in person \\rho is reyealed through his aspect" .

He also illustrates the application of orientation principles to modern factories, offices and apartment buildings. " 31 He also adds, "By adopting astrological norms, the owner of the house and his family can derive peace, pleasure and prosperity" 32.
