On 28 October 2005 Times Journal of Construction and Design reported:
Vedic Architecture, based on the Vedic Science of Maharishi Sthapatya Veda, is breaking new ground for modern architects and gaining popularity across the globe as builders seek out the knowledge of building in accord with nature. Scientific research is now acknowledging the importance of living and working in buildings that are properly oriented. Homes, offices, schools, and whole cities are being designed according to Vedic Architecture in order to 'connect the individual with the Cosmos'.
It is a joy for Global Good News service to feature this news, which indicates the success of the life-supporting programmes Maharishi has designed to bring
fulfilment to the field of science.
According to Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, founder of Maharishi Sthapatya Veda, Vedic Architecture 'will provide cosmic harmony and support to the individual for his peace, prosperity, and good health—daily life in accord with Natural Law, daily life in the evolutionary direction'.
The Indian publication presented a four page article on the subject, delineating the fundamentals of the time-tested approach to building, including orientation, the importance of proportion, natural building materials, its use in city planning, and its role in creating world peace.
The artitcle noted that structures built according to Vedic Architecture achieve the purpose of maintaining individual life on a cosmic level by mirroring the organizing intelligence of nature. Maharishi Sthapatya Veda buildings all have a central point of silence called a Brahmasthan. This is the area of wholeness in the building. The article explained that a town, a city, and even an entire nation should have a Brahmasthan as well.
The importance of the sun and its relationship to the house was also brought out. All Maharishi Sthapatya Veda structures face east towards the rising sun. The early morning sun provides great benefits to the dwellers of the building. As the sun crosses the sky, different types of energies are lively. The rooms in a Vedic house are built to receive the appropriate energy for the purpose of the room.
Research was cited to back up the claims of Vedic Architecture proponents, including scientific evidence that the human brain is sensitive to direction, position, and overall orientation. Thus it is deemed possible that people occupying Vedic structures would indeed experience physiological and psychological balance and would lead healthy lives. The article also referred to studies showing that people in homes with south entrances had significantly poorer health and less positive economic conditions than people with entrances to the north or east.
The article discussed the role of Vedic Architecture in creating world peace by creating complete harmony in life. Architect Chris Adamson was quoted as saying, 'Vedic Architecture is a knowledge which has the ability to bring real peace into the heart of every home and community, and offers a vision of rebuilding the world as an integrated whole.'
The article concluded by saying, 'Maharishi Mahesh Yogi has established the Global Country of World Peace that aims at reconstructing the entire world using Vedic Architecture. The Global Country of World Peace would endeavour to bring about heaven on earth by raising the quality of life of each individual through prosperity in every sense.'
Every day Global Good News documents the rise of a better quality of life dawning in the world and highlights the need for introducing Natural Law based—Total
Knowledge based—programmes to bring the support of Nature to every individual, raise the quality of life of every society, and create a lasting state of world peace.
