The director of the Transcendental Meditation programme in New Zealand, Martin Davy, recently spoke about developments in the small but active country.
New Zealand has a population of 4.4 million people and over 120 active Transcendental Meditation teachers. In addition, there is increasing interest in the meditation technique and other programmes of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi.
Mr Davy spoke about the Maharishi Spiritual Capital of New Zealand, a development of Maharishi Vastu* homes as well as a Maharishi Ayur-Veda health centre, and centre for teaching the Transcendental Meditation programme. Not only is construction of new Vastu houses an ongoing activity, but other renovations are taking place as well.
The council is organizing for a motorway off-ramp that comes straight into the development.
This means, said Mr Davy, 'the public will have a straight easy access to get to Maharishi Spiritual Capital now and we expect a lot of traffic just coming by'. In preparation for this, the development is creating new signs and increasing accessibility so that the public will be able to come and hear about the different aspects of Maharishi's knowledge and programmes.
One of those aspects well represented at the Maharishi Spiritual Capital, and in New Zealand in general, is Maharishi Sthapatya Veda or Vastu architecture.
In the next 12 months, Mr Davy expects to begin construction on another two or three Vastu houses in the development.
Construction of Vastu buildings is happening all around New Zealand. Inspired by a recommendation from Maharishi in 2005, many people have made it a strong priority to live in a house built in accord with principles of Vedic architecture, in alignment with natural law.
New Vastu structures are being built in Auckland next to a future Transcendental Meditation centre, in Wellington, and in Christchurch. Mr Davy mentioned that at present there are about 43 or 44 Vastu structures in New Zealand, but the number is steadily rising.
* Vastu refers to Vedic architecture—the complete knowledge of design and building in accord with natural law—brought to light from the Vedic literature by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi and known as Maharishi Sthapatya Veda.
