ur cities have to go beyond just economical, ecological and environmental balance.
What we are searching for is a city that has no crime, no poverty, where we create health, and don’t create misfortune; we raise the educational outcome. Also, is it possible that our city of the future could make us more creative, more successful? Could it bring us good fortune, make our thinking unrestricted, and maybe even enhance spiritual fulfillment? Can we harness Nature’s Intelligence within the build environment? Is it possible and do we want it?
The ancient science of Vedic Architecture or Vastu was restored by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, who also introduced Transcendental Meditation on the basis of published science. Vedic Architecture connects individual life with Cosmic Life. It connects individuals with Nature’s Intelligence which governs the entire universe with perfect order.
By aligning with nature’s intelligence and order, cities planned and built according to Maharishi Vedic architecture and city planning not only create an influence of protection from inner and outer stress and crime as well as being less likely to be hit by natural disasters. They create an influence of harmony, order, creativity, better health and good fortune for their inhabitants.
In the following video from the 2009 Aspen Environment Forum, in Aspen, Colorado, Jeffrey S. Abramson,
who was among the group of invited experts. provides glimpses into the future when discussing Vedic Architectural principals and how they help owners go beyond green, into scientific principles of orientation, placement, and proportion to engineer a building to enhance the success and productivity of its occupants.
