Plans for a large Maharishi Peace Colony* are underway in France, on beautiful land at the centre of the country.
The initiative was highlighted on the concluding day of a recent course in Maharishi Vedic Architecture held in MERU, Holland. (Please see Global Good News article: Holland: Professionals from 24 countries graduate Vedic architecture training)
Knowledge gained during the course—such as information about sustainable green building techniques and materials—will be applied in the project, an organizer from France said.
Residents will enjoy not only the benefits of Maharishi Sthapatya Veda architecture, but also the health benefits and energy efficiency of green building.
Project leaders plan to utilize only a small portion of the land for construction, so that there will be plenty of space for beautiful Vedic gardens based on the formal gardens of Versailles.
The land also features a large lake, and in addition to the gardens there are plans for orchards as well.
The entire initiative, with its individual Vastu buildings set in the context of a larger MahaVastu with Vedic gardens, will serve as an example for future initiatives.
Organizers hope that those who visit this idyllic community will be inspired to create similar ideal communities around the world.
* Maharishi Peace Colony: A community founded to help create invincibility for a nation, based on the principles of Maharishi's Vedic Science and their practical applications for living perfection in all areas of life—featuring homes, schools, businesses, and buildings for group practice of Yogic Flying—all built according to Vedic architecture, Maharishi Sthapatya Veda.
