On the Maharishi Global Family Chat, Dr Paul Gelderloos, National Director of Holland for the Global Country of World Peace, recently presented slides and the design for a new Maharishi Ayur-Veda Health Centre on a hill in the middle of a beautiful nature reserve in the east of Holland, looking out about five kilometers over the Maas river.
Maharishi had introduced the unique idea that every patient or client have his own treatment room, rather than going to a central treatment room where technicians treat one person after another. At the new health centre the technicians, doctor, or Vaidya (Ayur-Vedic expert) will come to the client in his or her own treatment room. The facility offers a great comfort, Dr Gelderloos said: a room with a separate treatment room.
People are more and more interested in health and rejuvenation, Dr Gelderloos commented. 'They want to be in a luxurious environment, and more and more peoples have the wealth to be able to do this,' said Dr Gelderloos. The new health centre has 31 rooms, with premium accommodations available.
The entrance is to the east, with a grand, open, entry hall featuring a ceiling that rises to the top floor of the building in the middle of the Brahmasthan [central silent area of the building]. In this central area people are able see everything they would like to receive, Dr Gelderloos said. Maharishi emphasized that when building a hospital, the patient or client should come in and feel welcomed and completely settled right away, he added.
Dr Gelderloos said he had learnt from Maharishi Sthapatya Veda architects that proportion is important—so the size of the entrance and also the way it is used is significant.
The dining area is on the southwest side of the building. 'Again the view is spectacular, especially for Holland,' said Dr Gelderloos.
Dr Gelderloos explained that the building is constructed with outer panels featuring beautiful arches and windows; these panels are already prepared for wiring etc. 'This is how we can build very quickly, because once these panels are created, we can just place one on top of the other and the effect is spectacular,' Dr Gelderloos said.
Maharishi had wanted a refined marble dust on the panel so that it would shine, and this is being utilized successfully in other construction, Dr Gelderloos concluded.
