The book contains a critical edition of the text, an English translation and copious notes elucidating its meaning. Chapters are devoted to a discussion of the following subjects: stones, compositional diagram, carving, disposition of the parts of the image, the basic emotions connected with images, and the total composition of the image panel.

A glossary of technical terms forms a useful part of the book. This third edition has been completely revised, and is an important addition to the scarce literature of authentic texts on Vastu/Silpa.
