On 31 August 2005 Press Trust of India reported:
Political infighting, which impedes governmental progress and wastes taxpayer money, can be blamed on the the bad layout - or Vastu - of India's parliament building, warns Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, founder of the Transcendental Meditation Movement. The Press Trust of India article, which was distributed to 2,000 newspapers and television stations throughout India, gave extensive coverage to Maharishi's message to the Indian press during a recent global news conference.
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 science.
According to Maharishi, the article said, the science of Vastu reveals that layout and building orientation have a powerful influence on the occupants of a home or office building. An eastern entrance facing the rising sun is good because it promotes orderly thinking, harmonious relations, and success. North is also good. But an entrance facing south or west—or an entrance skewed in any direction in between—is bad. These buildings promote disorderly thinking, conflict, negativity, and widespread problems.
Maharishi urged India's leaders to abandon the wrongly laid-out buildings 'as if an earthquake had hit the buildings'.
Maharishi said it is easy to determine whether the layout of a building has a good or bad influence. 'People can verify it for themselves,' Maharishi said. 'If they are living in a building with a south entrance or a west entrance or an entrance that is 'tilted' (e.g. southwest or northeast) they will find themselves shrouded in unrest, fears, and problems. If their house faces east they will enjoy harmony, happiness, and prosperity.'
Maharishi also said that there are no exceptions to the rule. 'Even a beautiful parliament building made of marble, which has been designed by a famous architect, should be demolished if it has a wrong layout,' Maharishi said. 'Otherwise, the mind of the president, prime minister, and his ministers will never be settled—their thinking will always be disorderly and off-balance.'
Recent scientific research documents that brain neurons fire more coherently when an individual faces east than when he faces south or west. 'How coherently a man's brain functions is the basis of how coherently he thinks and behaves,' Maharishi said.
Maharishi emphasized that his advice is based not on man-made architectural principles but rather on the eternal Veda—the 'Unified Field' as it is known by modern physics—which administers the infinite diversity of the universe with perfect order. 'What we are saying has absolute authority—that means it is true for all times, in every place, and for everyone,' Maharishi said.
Ironically, Maharishi acknowledged that leaders may not be able to understand and act on his call to abandon their wrongly laid-out buildings simply because they are living and working in bad Vastu.
In order to prevent the negative influences of bad Vastu, Maharishi recently launched his Global Reconstruction Programme and invited builders in every country to begin building Peace Colonies in every city, composed of 'fortune-creating' homes and offices, and Peace Palaces to teach Maharishi's Vedic Science-based programmes to the whole population.
'Now, with this knowledge, builders can stop building ''unlucky'' buildings that produce problems and difficulties for the people and instead quickly build ''fortune-creating'' homes, office buildings, schools, hospitals, and factories in harmony with Natural Law,' Maharishi said. 'In this way, builders can eliminate the unseen basis of so many problems.'
Addressing the issue of non-believers, Maharishi said, 'Ultimately, the proof of the pudding is in the tasting. Demolish your present building and build a new one according to Vastu, and see how quickly you begin to thrive—see how quickly you begin to make more money, have better relations, and enjoy more success in your ife. These are the benefits of good Vastu.'
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.
