The knowledge and initiative for creating Vedic Garden Cities were recently showcased with great success in the UK, at the large Ecobuild exhibition at London's Excel Centre. More than 60,000 building professionals and members of the public were drawn to Ecobuild to explore new possibilities for building a sustainable future.

The Fortune-Creating Homes exhibit offered a comprehensive design approach for a harmonious and life-supporting living environment through Maharishi Vastu architecture,* the most ancient and complete system of building in harmony with natural law, reported British Vastu experts John Renwick and Henry Brighouse.

The response was completely positive, they said, often generating moments of recognition of the fundamental principles of Maharishi Vastu—principles such as 'right direction', where the home is oriented towards the east, towards the life-giving rays of the rising sun; and the Brahmasthan, the silent centre of the home or city, which has its parallel in cells, planets, and galaxies.

Also highlighted in the exhibit were principles of Maharishi Vedic City Planning, and a special Maharishi Vastu building project in Allahabad, India.

Mr Renwick and Mr Brighouse also reported on latest developments in Maharishi Vastu building projects in the UK.

Rendlesham now has 54 Vastu homes, all built in the last nine years, and four more are now under construction. This real-life example of city planning according to natural law, all with natural materials, generated huge interest at Ecobuild.

The beautiful homes have all been produced with local workmanship, and the workers have enjoyed the harmonious atmosphere so much that they take any opportunity to come and work there again.

Scotland now has its first lovely Vastu home, built by Harry Bland at Caithness in the far north, with a beautiful view over the sea to the east.

* Vastu refers to Vedic architecture—the complete knowledge of design and building in accord with natural law—brought to light from the Vedic literature by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi as Maharishi Sthapatya Veda.

Global Good News will feature more about Maharishi Vastu developments in the UK.
