After some years of work and careful planning, a large Maharishi Vastu community in Canton, Ohio, USA, is just about ready to begin building.
A Vastu community is a group of houses all designed according to the ancient Vedic principles of Vastu design and in surroundings which enhance the houses' alignment with natural law. This means that location of the sun, location of water bodies, orientation, and proportion of the houses are all carefully taken into account.
The Ohio Vedic Homes project is located one hour south of Cleveland and near Lake Erie in the city of Canton.
The project has had a long history. About six years ago, Transcendental Meditation teacher David Kidd searched the state of Ohio for appropriate land on which to build a Maharishi Peace Palace—a centre for learning Transcendental Meditation and related programmes of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi.
Jon Lipman, architect and director of Fortune-Creating Buildings in the United States, said, 'He found a beautiful piece of land. . . . It has a lovely lake of 26 acres, and the property includes the land all the way around the lake.'
In addition to having this lovely setting, Mr Lipman, an expert in Maharishi Vastu architecture, added that the property has wonderful Vastu characteristics. One important factor in Vastu design is capturing the nourishing influence of the sun. All of the Ohio Vedic Homes will have zero 'sunrise delay'* as well as the beautiful lake directly to their east.
The property has 'absolutely sublime Vastu despite being in a sizable city,' Mr Lipman said.
Inspired by the beautiful setting and great Vastu characteristics, Mr Kidd planned to develop and build the Vastu housing community. The first stages of the process, from finding the land to developing Ohio Vedic Homes, took about six years.
Now, almost all the work has been done. Within the next few weeks, lots will be ready to sell in the first residential Vastu community in Ohio.
* That is, there are no obstructions preventing the first rays of the rising sun from falling on the front entrance to the house.
