Ohio Vedic Homes in the United States aims to be a unique housing development, the first of its kind in Ohio. According to the website (, in addition to being a health and recreation community with a focus on outdoor activities, the community will focus on the inner development of its residents as well.

This inner development manifests in a few ways. The first is through the ancient Vedic principles of architecture, known as Vastu, and the second is through offering self-improvement programmes like meditation and yoga.

The website elaborates:

'The new residential community is planned to be health-oriented. In addition to deed-recorded rights to use the 27-acre lake for recreation, a one-mile walking path around the lake, and a common area marina/picnic shelter, residents will have available a yoga center offering both the physical and mental forms of yoga training.'

The health of the residents was also a factor in Ohio Vedic Homes emphasizing green, or eco friendly building. The houses are planned to utilize the latest technology of healthy-green homes.

Again, the website explains, 'Our approach is to build smaller, more energy efficient and green homes with less of an impact on the environment, and to place them on comfortable lots given the desired house sizes and our Vedic architecture rules.'

This will make the housing community just the third of its kind in the United States.

In order to spread the word, Vastu architect and expert, Jon Lipman, gave a speaking tour of Ohio. He spoke in Columbus, Canton, and Cleveland about the advantages of living in a Vastu community and spoke about the new availability of lots in Ohio Vedic Homes, which Mr Lipman said, perfectly adhere to the principles of Vastu.

He added, 'Now there's a great deal of interest in the community.'
