The first global Vastu* Coordinator Training Course, offered over the Internet to Teachers of the Transcendental Meditation Technique and practitioners of the Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programme, began on Victory Day, 28 September 2009.
Reporting about the new course on Maharishi Global Family Chat** was Dr Wojtek Skalski, Deputy Minister of Architecture for the Global Country of World Peace.
The purpose of the Vastu Coordinator position, said Dr Skalski, is to help popularize Vastu homes by inspiring and marketing to potential local clients. The Vastu Coordinators will refer clients to Vastu Consultants, who in turn will design the home. They will also serve as a point of contact for the International Department of Architecture for the Global Country of World Peace in Holland or the United States.
Dr Skalski reported that the number of applicants exceeded expectations, totalling 600 from 70 different countries worldwide; of those, 530 will be participating in the programme. In addition to 70 from the US, applicants have come from all countries in Europe and South America, in addition to Japan, the Philippines, Singapore, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Nigeria, Ghana, Algeria, South Africa, India, Thailand, Malaysia, and Indonesia—and many others. 'It was great to see such widespread interest in the knowledge of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi,' remarked Dr Skalski.
The course, unlike past courses organized by the Global Country of World Peace, is to be offered online, for the convenience of participants. 'It will allow everyone to save on travel and accommodation expenses,' said Dr Skalski, 'and to complete the course at their own pace—within the span of one month.'
Although there is some flexibility, to accommodate different schedules, the course is structured to be finished in four 2.5-hour sessions, spanning four consecutive days. 'We hope that participants can view the course simultaneously as much as possible, especially on the first day—to create a wave of coherence, enlivening the subject of Vastu all over the world.'
Each session of the course is dedicated to a different theme:
- The first session explains Maharishi's plan for the reconstruction of the world according to Vastu principles;
- the second presents scientific research on the effects of Vastu architecture on health and protection against negative influences;
- the third introduces ideal cities and Maharishi Peace Colonies***; and
- the fourth details the specific responsibilities of the Vastu Coordinator.
Global Good News will continue reporting on the global Vastu Coordinator Training Course in the coming days.
* Vastu refers to Vastu vidya, Vedic Architecture—the knowledge of designing and constructing Fortune Creating buildings in accord with Natural Law—brought to light from the Vedic Literature as Maharishi Sthapatya Veda by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi.
