A second new book related to Maharishi Vastu architecture* has recently been published: Measuring the World for Global Reconstruction, written by Master Surveyor Roger Audet. It explains how Maharishi Vastu architecture uses the global grid of latitude and longitude as the basis of town and city planning according to the principle of cardinal direction. This grid, known to the ancient Vedic civilization of India, is used in vastu to create a master grid for the whole world.
In order to understand the significance of the global grid, the book chronicles the evolution of the concepts and techniques of global survey by civilizations throughout the ages. Historical milestones such as the creation of astronomical observatories and estimations of the size of the globe by the ancient Vedic civilization; the calculation of the circumference of the earth by the Greek mathematician Eratosthenes; the invention of the marine chronometer by John Harrison that resolved the famous longitude problem around 1760; the creation of the 'metre' by the new French Republic of 1792; the techniques of map-making from antiquity to the modern time; and many more give insight into the gradual evolution of our understanding of the earth's shape and size.
These key developments of measuring the world from ancient times to modern are shown to support the techniques and mathematics of right orientation used in Maharishi Vastu architecture for planning auspicious buildings, towns and cities.
