Cows enjoy new home in Maharishi Vastu barn

A Maharishi Vastu* barn (built according to Vedic architecture) has just been inaugurated in upstate New York, USA, and is now happily occupied by some very fortunate cows. This perfect Vastu barn will be the new home of a herd of Jersey cows, which first lived in Vastu in North Carolina, USA. . . .

As the cows entered the barn for the first time and settled down, several of them sat down facing east. Reports say that the cows especially like their east-facing** feeding stalls and the abundance of natural light and space.

''The feeling in the barn is so special. One can feel a great wholeness that is more than the collection of all the parts of the building,'' reports the woman who looks after the cows. ''There is a silence and feeling of deep peace. It is very difficult to leave once one is in there. Being in this barn made very clear the difference between a properly directed building and a properly directed Maharishi Vastu structure. The cows also seem much more settled and at home.''

Photos taken during construction of the barn demonstrate that the cows had a keen interest in the process of building right from the start.

Two of the cows are close to calving and the owners hope to have the heated kitchen for cleaning equipment and preparing products ready before that event.

More about the cows, including photos, can be found at:

* Vastu refers to Vastu vidya, Vedic architecture—the knowledge of designing and constructing Fortune-Creating buildings in accord with Natural Law—brought to light in its completeness from the Vedic Literature by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi as Maharishi Sthapatya Veda.

** Principles of Vastu architecture include that of proper orientation of buildings and structures toward due east to receive the nourishing influence of the rising sun.
