The planned Maharishi Vedic Village near Niagara Falls, Canada, is much more than your average housing development. In addition to the emphasis on Maharishi Vastu architecture, the development will feature a wide range of facilities that aim to engender sustainability and promote health, harmony, and abundance for the individuals residing there and for the whole community.
The location of the site is just two miles (3.2 kilometres) away from Niagara Falls and features several crucial characteristics of good Vastu land.
Vastu architecture is based on Vedic principles of design from ancient India which aim to integrate a structure with the laws of nature structuring both its immediate and distant surroundings. The result of this successful integration means that inhabitants gain the support of natural law and feel more attuned with their environment.
Jon Lipman, Vastu expert and director of Fortune-Creating Buildings, explained that the 90-acre (36-hectare) site of Maharishi Vedic Village features a river to the north, an auspicious location for a body of water. This river connects directly to the famous falls.
But this is not the extent of the Vastu characteristics of the development.
Mr Lipman explained that the current designs include a central courtyard with a Maharishi Vedic Observatory, and to the west of that, a Maharishi Tower of Invincibility. There will be a high-end resort, a Maharishi Ayur-Veda health spa, and a hotel. The rooms in the hotel will be available for use in educational courses and Transcendental Meditation courses, so that the participants can learn while staying in Vastu buildings.
The main component will be a wide range of residences; one of the main goals is to create a residential development that enriches and nourishes the lives of individuals and the whole community.
To this end, the community will have a cultural centre, and to the south, a range of additional facilities that include greenhouses.
Mr Lipman explained the greenhouses' function 'so that we can provide Maharishi Vedic Organic produce, both for our own use and as an income stream by selling to the larger community; and also to improve the quality of food in this part of the northern United States and southern Canada.'
