It is now easier than ever to build a home according to the ancient Vedic science of Vastu building, said Maharishi Vastu expert Dr Eike Hartmann.
At the Fourth Annual Vastu Panorama Conference in Bhopal, India—a conference on Vastu architecture and utilizing Vastu to create buildings and cities in accord with natural law, Dr Hartmann addressed the audience via a video presentation, about efforts he and others have undertaken to make building with Vastu easier and more cost-effective than ever.
'Over time we have assembled a portfolio of more than 100 prototype houses which are already built and where the plans are available,' Dr Hartmann said. 'These are typically marketed as Fortune-Creating Homes and come in all sizes, styles, and materials, ready for anyone in any country.'
Once a prototype house is selected, the process begins. 'Each building project begins with site evaluation to make sure the land is suitable and auspicious. In Vastu [architecture], the main criterion is right orientation. Orientation is twofold: once with reference to the globe—north and south poles and the equator—and the other with reference to the sun rising in the east.'
Some people wonder how such distant environmental factors can affect a building or its occupants. Dr Hartmann explained:
'The strongest influence of natural law comes from the sun on its path from east to west. From sunrise to sunset, the sun generates different energies. When it rises in the east, the total holistic life-supporting influence of natural law is blessing the home.' Thus it is ideal, he said, when the front of the building faces east.
The west, however, is the direction of the setting sun and therefore has a different energy. 'There the energy of the day is sinking, the vitality of the day is sinking, which is causing all kinds of lack because the energy is gone, so there is lack of affluence, lack of creativity, even lack of health' when a building faces to the west.
Dr Hartmann went on to discuss more aspects of Maharishi Vastu architecture and building, as well as city planning.
