What Is Maharishi Sthapatya Veda?

Vastu Vidya of Maharishi Sthapatya Veda, also known as Maharishi Vedic architecture and Maharishi Vastu, is a method of architecture where all of the buildings are in complete harmony with the Natural Law of the Universe. Maharishi Vedic architecture accomplishes this through ensuring that each particle of matter is in exact and perfect harmony with every other particle that exists in nature and its environment. One must consider everything in the universe. The moon, sun, planets, and stars must be in perfect harmony with the equator and north and south poles.

Cardinal Directions Generate Harmony

When places of business, homes, schools and even entire communities, towns and countries are built according to this ancient architectural system based on cardinal directions, this perfect harmony is achieved. Then, every person's life and intelligence is connected to Cosmic Life and Cosmic Intelligence. It is the creation of ideal living conditions, an actual heaven on earth.

Creating Auspicious Living Environments

Followers of this system of Vastu Vidya architecture believe that humanity has the opportunity to live permanently in a completely happy and healthy community by building residences, commercial and institutional buildings following the Natural Laws of building. They believe this system is the will of God and will create auspicious living environments and peace on earth on a permanent basis.

His Holiness Maharishi Mahesh Yogi and the Resurgence of the Ancient Traditions

Well known as the founder of the Transcendental Meditation Program in 1957, His Holiness Maharishi Mahesh Yogi is responsible for bringing the ancient Vedic Traditions of Natural Law to the forefront in 1993. This resurgence of Vedic architecture is known as the Dawn of the Vedic Civilization.

Fundamental Principles of Maharishi Sthapatya Veda

There are a few fundamental principles of Maharishi Sthapatya Veda that will ensure you live in harmony with the universe. You can apply these principles when building and as corrective measures for an inauspicious home design.

Mathematical Calculations and Formulas

Every structure has a Brahmasthan. This is a special place known as the seat of wholeness, which is the open central point. All mathematical calculations and proportions are auspicious. They are calculated based on the general proportions of the physiology of humans and the physiology of the Cosmic Universe. The mathematical formulas used are those of the ancient Vedic Traditions.

Building to Connect With the Cosmic Intelligence

Maharishi Vastu architect Dr. Eike Hartmann explains how Vastu principles allow humans to connect with the global magnetic and cosmic energies. Maharishi Vastu architects use these math tools and focus on the north and south poles as well as the equator to ensure right direction.

Right Direction for Harmonious Living

The basic principles of Vedic Architecture mandate that everything must be in perfect harmony with everything else in the universe. This requires the proper orientation of the right direction of everything is essential. For example, the direction of the main entrance that a building faces determines the direction the entire building faces.

Auspicious and Inauspicious Directions

Compass directions are used in Vastu architecture. There are eight possible compass directions, but only two of them, north and east, have an auspicious effect and influence. Buildings with inauspicious directions cause illness, unhappiness and financial problems in society.

Right Room Placement

Every activity that takes place in your house must have an ideal place. This principle is based on the energies of the sun and how it affects the house. Humans, like all creatures, are programmed to be in sync with the rhythms of the sun and moon. The cardinal directs influence daily energies and activities.

Right Proportions

It's not enough to place the rooms according to their function, each room needs to be the right proportion in order to provide the auspicious set-up for humans to connect with the cosmic intelligence.

Building With Sustainability, Natural Materials

It is important to use as much natural material as possible. Nothing used in the structure should contain toxic ingredients. The areas should be free of electromagnetic fields, which are harmful to humans. This includes high tension lines, microwave ovens and microwave towers. The home or commercial building should take full advantage of solar power, such as passive solar power gain from siting the structure in line with the movement of the sun.
