Thailand: Bangkok floods repelled by Maharishi Vastu Shield effect

Another recent example of the protective effect of Maharishi Vastu architecture in the face of natural disasters was seen in Thailand, where devastating floods have inundated large areas of the country and then submerged parts of the capital city, Bangkok. When floodwaters completely surrounded a new Vastu home, the brick Vastu fence held the waters back and prevented any damage to the house.

Recently, a couple in Thailand finished building their Maharishi Vastu* home in Bangkok. When the house was about 75% complete their Vedic architect visited the site and asked them how they planned to build the Vastu fence.**


They were intending to go for an economical wooden fence, and he pointed out to them that a more substantial fence of either stone or brick was always preferred and would bring an even greater sense of security. They took his advice and built a brick wall for their fence.

The area of Bangkok where they live has been hit by the recent, devastating floods and now they are very glad they made this investment.

Water was flowing all around their area and started to rise against the brick Vastu fence. The fence held the water outside and prevented any damage to the house, even though water was surrounding the entire house. The wall was like a little fortress to the house. Even the water in the pond inside the fence receded into the ground and merged with the flood waters that flowed everywhere outside of the fence. The surrounding water came up near the top of the Vastu wall, but not over it. The wooden gate was covered with sandbags to stop the water. 

The owners were very thankful that the dirty, disease- and trash-filled water flowing around their neighborhood and just outside their fence did not affect them in any way. The water was filled with debris from millions of other homes and even toxic factories to the north of them.

Before the floods, the Vastu fence just looked attractive to them. It was not until the water started flowing into their area and around their house that the significance of the Vastu fence and the 'Vastu Shield effect' occurred to them.

This is the experience of many other Maharishi Vastu homeowners who have had their Maharishi Vastu homes ''tested'' by natural forces. The protection is there when it is needed and is silently supporting when the elements of nature are quiet.

* Vastu refers to Vastu vidya, Vedic architecture—the knowledge of design and building in accord with Natural Law—brought to light in its completeness from the Vedic literature by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi as Maharishi Sthapatya Veda.

** Vastu Fence — Since a Maharishi Vastu building is designed to be in harmony with the universe, the influence from the building naturally extends into the landscape, providing greater protection and coherence beyond the front door. A Vastu fence or wall marks the extension of this influence. Its proportions and measurements are set according to the ancient formulas of Sthapatya Veda.
