An article about the beneficial influence of the rising sun in Maharishi Vastu architecture continues with examples of four Vastu homes in different regions across the United States.
Please see Part I of this article: Importance of the sun's first light in Maharishi Vastu architecture
In the houses featured here, one on the plains of the Midwest, one in the western mountains, and the other two in the eastern mountains, the owners have found beautiful sites which illustrate the effect on the inhabitants of early sunlight on the front of the home. Their experiences of living in these homes exemplify the descriptions as recorded and predicted by the ancient Vastu texts.
The western owners relate: ''On a subtler level, at home, I feel the connectedness to the laws of nature. The home honors nature and nature seems to return the homage. We have lived in many beautiful homes but they always felt like someone else's idea of life to which we had to adapt. This house feels like an extension of one's self. From the immediate purpose of supporting the routines of daily living, the boundaries and dimensions of the house, being so aligned with the sun, moon, stars, planets, and the environment, bring the effect of feeling unbounded. . . .
''Our house does feel just right for us, comfortable with just us at home together, comfortable with 30 guests here for a pot-luck [meal], comfortable with several houseguests here for a week. We are very happy with our new home.''
This home, in the mountains of New Hampshire, is a perfect example of a design that naturally allows light to enter deeply into the house on both levels. Most of the house functions receive the eastern light due to the very open floor plan on both main and upper levels. The abundant use of windows also provides maximum opportunity for air circulation, another important consideration in a Maharishi Vastu home.
A wise man has said, ''Ignorance of the laws of nature is not an excuse . . . it does not negate the effect of natural law.'' Our desire is for everyone to live in a Maharishi Vastu home so that the profound effect of the vital rays of early morning sun can influence and guide them throughout their daily life.
