The photos of a new home in Australia, built according to Maharishi Vastu architecture, clearly illustrate two important features of a Vastu home—light and fresh air penetrating everywhere.
The house and its annex have many eco-friendly features—it captures all rainwater that falls on its roof for use as the domestic water supply after filtration; wastewater is treated on site and then used on the gardens; the solid waste is also treated on site; and the couple compost as well. The house and its annex are powered by solar electricity and supplied with solar hot water, with the aim of having a zero carbon footprint.
Like many Maharishi Vastu homeowners, this couple came to feel great camaraderie with the tradespeople who built the house—the carpenters, cabinetmakers, painters, tilers, plasterers and the other trades—everyone wanted to express their creativity in some way through their particular skill. Being skilled they also recognized the uniqueness and coherence of what they were creating and took significant pride in their work.
The owners related that finding the right builder was key to the process: ''The builder's team worked with us at each stage of construction, and the foreman was great, allowing us to check every detail as construction progressed.'' Taking pride in the work done and achieving precision with Vedic dimensions is critical. Just as with the human body and all natural objects, there are ideal proportions in buildings that allow natural law to provide maximum support for the homeowners and their activity.
Experts in Maharishi Vastu architecture explain that right proportion and measurement in buildings strengthen the connection of individual intelligence to cosmic intelligence. When a house is designed, the dimensions of the building are calculated using the ancient mathematical formulas of Maharishi Vedic architecture. These Vedic formulas ensure a perfect resonance between the cosmic structures and all components of the house.
