The process of building a Maharishi Peace Palace differs from that of building a Maharishi Vastu* home, according to the directors of the recently completed Maharishi Peace Palace in Erfurt, near the centre of Germany. A Peace Palace is less an individual undertaking, rather it is the expression of the desire of many people to create a peaceful, ideal quality of life in their area. This was the case with the Erfurt Maharishi Peace Palace, said Dr Eckart Stein, one of the Erfurt directors. From laying the foundation stone to the inauguration, the whole process took one year.
A Maharishi Peace Palace is also unique among buildings as it is a home for Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's peace-creating technologies, and will be a lighthouse for the area for many generations to come. People who have attended in-residence courses at the Erfurt Peace Palace since its completion last October have described a deeper, more restful quality of sleep as well as improvements in their health.

At the recent Vastu Builder Seminar at Maharishi European Research University (MERU) in Holland, participants from 12 countries worked on plans for Vastu housing developments, Peace Colonies and Garden Villages in their home countries. Several also mentioned plans to develop a Maharishi Peace Palace.
The seminar has been offered for architects, builders, and developers in many countries, and one architect on this course said he appreciated how much knowledge of Maharishi Vastu was presented in such a short time, which broadened his understanding.
Other participants commented on their experiences at the conclusion of the seminar. An architect from Turkey, who attended the course with her daughter, reported that since graduating from architecture school years earlier, she had always felt something was incomplete in her education. Now, with the knowledge of Maharishi Vastu architecture, she felt her training was complete and she was ready to embark on Vastu building projects, including developing plans for a Vastu housing development.
A representative from a group in Croatia reported on plans for developing Maharishi Vedic architecture projects including individual homes and a housing development; they also hope to build a Maharishi Peace Palace.
A builder from Morocco, who first learned about Maharishi Vastu some years ago in Fairfield, Iowa, USA, described the 'extraordinary' quality of experience he felt in visiting some of the many Vastu buildings in the city, which inspired him to learn more about the knowledge of Maharishi Vastu. He particularly appreciated the extraordinary precision of Maharishi Vastu, and is developing plans for Vastu building projects in his country.
He also described the responsibility he feels as a builder to show the next generation the benefits of Maharishi Vastu. He can readily share the knowledge and experience of Maharishi Vastu with architects and contemporaries; but for the general public, rather than only speaking about the benefits of living in Vastu, he wants to build in order to give people the actual experience of all the good effects of living and working in such buildings.
* Vastu refers to Vedic architecture—the complete knowledge of design and building in accord with natural law—brought to light from the Vedic literature by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi and known as Sthapatya Veda.
