The planned Maharishi Vedic Village is much more than a housing community. Developers want to capitalize on the community's proximity to one of the most popular tourist sites in North America, Niagara Falls, by creating a Vedic tourist destination within the village.

The proposed site is just two miles (3.2 kilometres) from the famous falls.

'This is one of the world's great tourism destinations,' said Maharishi Vastu architect and expert Jon Lipman. He added that it is a natural idea to provide Vedic tourism for all of the visiting tourists.

Mr Lipman said that surrounding the housing community will be very lively Vedic entertainment elements that he hopes will make it a destination for the millions of people who come to Niagara Falls from all over the world every year.

'They can be inspired by one of the world's great beauties, Niagara Falls, and then they can transcend* by being exposed to Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's Vedic knowledge at this beautiful entertainment community.'

Tourist facilities will include a cultural centre, Vedic barge, Vedic fountain, and a welcome centre. Of course, he said, the heart of the community will be devoted to housing, including many different kinds of residences on offer.

'Very extensive market surveys are being conducted,' Mr Lipman explained, 'so that we can understand what kind of mix of residences should go into the Maharishi Vedic Village to make it a complete success.'

Developers want to know what combination of apartments, condominiums, private homes, and townhouses will be ideal.

'[Maharishi Vedic Village] will also include an assisted living centre so that, as we age, we can live in perfect Vastu,' said Mr Lipman

When asked if the progress in this development was a sign of an improved property market, he commented, 'The real estate market in the United States is definitely slightly improving but there remain many foreclosed houses from the four years of real estate and financing turmoil of recent history. I don't think anyone in the field would say that the real estate market has pulled out of that yet . . . but we do see some very exciting developments in Maharishi Vastu.'

* Transcending: The systematic settling down of the mind to experience increasingly refined levels of the thinking process, eventually going beyond the finest level of thinking to experience the silent, unbounded field of transcendental consciousness, the basis of the mind's activity. Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's technologies of consciousness, including Transcendental Meditation, allow the individual to experience the effortless process of transcending in a systematic, reliable, repeatable manner.
