On 13 November 2007 KindredSpirit Magazine reported:
Garden Village, a development of Maharishi Sthapatya Veda homes in Rendelsham, Suffolk, England, exemplifies a community enjoying the many benefits of Vedic Architecture.
It is a joy for Global Good News service to feature this news, which indicates the success of the life-supporting programmes Maharishi has designed to bring
fulfilment to the fields of health and world peace.
The article reported that 'On touring the site there was a definite positive community vibe where like-minded people live together in harmony. They could not do enough to help each other and in a society where neighbourly disputes seem to be the norm it was really refreshing to see.'
The residents of Garden Village expressed their enthusiasm and appreciation for homes designed according to the principles of Maharishi Sthapatya Veda. One resident, the article reported, 'is a part-time art lecturer at the University of East London and has lived in her Sthapatya Veda house almost a year. The benefits she listed were vast and she clearly delighted at the positive feelings the house has brought her. ''There's an enormous sense of well-being—I couldn't be happier,'' the article quoted her as saying.
The article reported that the homes had 'a sense of orderliness' and were 'aesthetically pleasing'.
In addition, the article stated 'people who live and work in Sthapatya Veda buildings [say] that they think more clearly, make better decisions and feel happier and healthier. They also report experiencing more refreshing sleep and as a result have more energy.'
Maharishi Vedic Architecture, 'focuses on three main areas: right direction, right proportions and right placement of rooms. The entrance of the house should face east as the energy from the sun is at its greatest when rising and this will provide the best benefits to the vitality of the family,' the article reported. 'Ayurvedic doctors have found that patients living in homes with south entrances had poorer health and more financial problems than patients with east entrances,' the article stated.
The materials used to construct Sthapatya Veda homes are environmentally-friendly, 'natural paints, wooden window frames and woodchip floors—and all wiring is covered in a protective sheath which minimizes electromagnetic radiation being absorbed into the environment,' the article reported.
Another feature of Sthapatya Veda design is a Brahmasthan, which the article described as 'a central, silent and unused space which is seen as the heart and soul of the building that produces a feeling of peacefulness.'
In conclusion, the author of the article noted: 'I have to admit I could sense something as I entered the homes—I can't place exactly what it was—but it was positive in making me realise that this approach really should be taken more seriously. Whether you believe in the principles behind it or not, you cannot deny the fact that these houses can make you feel more positive.'
