On 1 February 2008 Inside Higher Ed reported:
Fortune-creating buildings constructed on the principles of Maharishi Vedic architecture are reshaping the campus of Maharishi University of Management.
It is a joy for Global Good News service to feature this news, which indicates the success of the life-supporting programmes Maharishi has designed to bring
fulfilment to the field of education.
Campus restructing began in 2000. Since then boasts 70 new Maharishi Vedic architectural buildings have been built according to natural law, which uses the daily influence of the sun as one of the guidelines of construction.
Some of the 70 new buildings include:
• Five major administrative and academic buildings
• Six small residence halls
• 12 homes and one condominium building for faculty and administrators
• One media centre
• One natural food store
• The Maharishi Tower of Invincibility
The Inside Higher Ed article stated, 'In this style and on one of the highest points on campus, the flagship $7.5 million, 48,000-square-foot Argiro Student Center will open Friday. It will be home to a dining hall serving organic vegetarian foods, largely locally grown in a 10-acre garden and 1-acre greenhouse right on campus. It will also house an auditorium, bookstore, student lounge, mail room, conference room, exercise area, and festival hall for religious services.'
Campus architect Jonathan Lipman, was quoted as saying, 'All the buildings that we build are completely nourishing.'
The article noted that Lipman considers the health of everything in the buildings 'down to the toxicity of carpet glue in order to create healthy indoor climates'.
Also in the works:
• A Sustainable Living Center that will be self sufficient in its use of energy, water, and waste management.
• A 22-unit 'Golden Dome' apartment complex
• More student dorms
• Two Peace Palaces for Transcendental Meditation
Maharishi University of Management Executive Vice President Craig Pearson was quoted as saying, 'We want the students to have every possible advantage for the growth of their health, the growth of their well-being, and the personal growth from within. When we have the prospect of a system of architecture that is said to promote clarity of thought, greater well-being...then we thought, ''Well, that's just terrific''.'
Every day Global Good News documents the rise of a better quality of life dawning in the world and highlights the need for introducing Natural Law based—Total
Knowledge based—programmes to bring the support of Nature to every individual, raise the quality of life of every society, and create a lasting state of world peace.
