In the province of Novara, Italy, close to the town of Arona at the foothills of the Italian Alps, the plan for a Vastu Village was inspired by Dr. Graziella Bensi. The location has a panoramic view of the Alps, and the famed Lake District of Italy is to the north. The site is surrounded by gentle farmland and forest as well as a park along the Tocino River.

All of these features will bring auspicious influences to the Maharishi Vastu* community and provide ample opportunities for walking, hiking, and a variety of outdoor recreational activities.



The community will designate land for growing Vedic organic produce to be used by the residents as well as the organic restaurant and Maharishi Ayurveda Health Centre located within the community.

In addition to meeting the Maharishi Vastu standards for natural and non-toxic materials, the entire project will be characterized by ecologically friendly materials and systems. All structures will use either brick or wood and will favor local roofing tiles and bricks. Insulation for thermal and acoustic purposes will be either cellulose or cork. Plasters and mortar will be either natural gypsum or pure hydraulic lime.

Only natural, organic paints, stains, and coatings will go on walls. Low-power heating will use geothermal and heat pump technologies, and cooling will be done through the use of natural and mechanical ventilation in every building.

The development will also function as a Maharishi Peace Colony, in which residents will create an influence of coherence and harmony in the national consciousness through their daily meditation practice.
