Realizing the existence of Gods was possible in the ages (yuga) of Kṛta, Tretā and Dvāpara, but impossible in Kali-yuga.—In the Vedic Age, people practised to connect themselves with gods through the yajñas (“sacrificial rites”) by chanting the Vedic mantras or practicing penance. In the Vedic era, Agni is considered as the mediator between the deities and the devotees or sages. In the Viṣṇudharmottarapurāṇa it is clearly stated that the requirement of making of temple is most important in the Kaliyuga. Because, in the three other yugas i.e.,, Kṛta, Tretā and Dvāpara; people could realize the existence of Gods and had tried directly to connect themselves with the supreme spirit. But in the Kaliyuga it is totally impossible due to the growth of unlawful activities in the society.
Vastushastra (वास्तुशास्त्र, vāstuśāstra) refers to the ancient Indian science (shastra) of architecture (vastu), dealing with topics such architecture, sculpture, town-building, fort building and various other constructions.
