''When Heaven on Earth is a reality, then people will only be attracted by beautiful things.'' — Maharishi Mahesh Yogi
On the path to enlightenment it is natural that with the refinement of consciousness taking place, people will be attracted to more refined values in their environment, said Dr Christian Schweizer, continuing his recent lecture on beauty in Vastu architecture.
It is also true that beautiful structures uplift the consciousness of the observer. Maharishi often quoted the Vedic saying, ''What you see you become,'' drawing attention to the importance of the quality of the environment.
Maharishi therefore encouraged the use of ornamentation in the design of Vastu homes. As Dr Schweizer points out, the influence of architecture on individuals is more far-reaching than that of other forms of art because the individual not only views the structure from outside, but lives within it and experiences its living effect every day.
Some of the refined features that are to be seen in Vastu homes include decorated arches, lattice work, and lotus flower motifs. In general, colours are light and gold may be used in some of the finer decorative details.
The team of Maharishi Sthapatya Veda architects at MERU in Holland have developed the MERU Master Builder System, offering precast Vedic ornaments and wall-panels, as well as a portfolio of house designs, both residential and commercial.
