A star: Pundit plans happy buildings

2011-10-01 00:00

“ENGINEERING or architecture have a spiritual element,” says Pundit Roshan Singh, who was honoured by the All India Federation of Astrologers recently for his contribution in the fields of Vedic sciences.

Based in Gauteng, Singh explained that when one constructs a building the most important aspect is often overlooked, that of “happiness and wellbeing”.

“There is so much to consider, and in my commitment to Vedic studies I have come to take a spiritual path,” he said.

This is the first time that the award has left the shores of India, and Singh’s client base now extends internationally. “I render services and offer spiritual insight to people from all racial and ethnic groups … the nature of my work … is not religion-specific,” he said.

Singh’s paper on the roots of Vedic astrology was well received by over 40 astrologers from India.

He has been invited to India to attend a Vedic seminar and a conference, both in December.
