Dr Robert Wynne, the mayor of Maharishi Vedic City in Iowa, USA, recently unveiled ambitious new plans for the city.
According to its website, the city is 'a model of ideal city life. The name ''Vedic'' comes from the Sanskrit word ''Veda,'' which means ''knowledge''. The name ''Maharishi'' is in honor of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, who is renowned throughout the world for bringing to light in a scientific, systematic manner the complete Vedic science of consciousness.'
Maharishi Vedic City is unique in a number of ways, as described on the website. Every building is designed according to Maharishi Vastu architecture (also known as Maharishi Sthapatya Veda), and the sale of non-organic produce has been banned. In addition, the city is a centre of alternative medicine options, especially Maharishi Ayurveda, with world-renowned The Raj spa and the College of Maharishi Vedic Medicine of Maharishi University of Management located there.
Maharishi Vedic City is a young city, at just over 10 years old, but according to the United States Census Bureau of 2010, it has a population of 1,294.
Mr Wynne said that a goal for the coming year is to increase the total population in Maharishi Vedic City to more than 2,000.
With that growth, Mr Wynne would like to 'increase the infrastructure of the city as we expand in population'.
The city council has a few ideas about how to do this. They would like to bring in and build an 18-hole organic golf course. 'Also,' Mr Wynne said, 'there is a lot of enthusiasm and expertise for a retirement community.'
