Cities of the Future

Order & Orientation affect our Health


ur cities have to go beyond just economical, ecological and environmental balance.

We are searching for a city with no crime, and no poverty, where we create health and don’t create misfortune and raise the educational outcome. Also, is it possible that our city of the future could make us more creative and more successful? Could it bring us good fortune, make our thinking unrestricted, and maybe even enhance spiritual fulfilment? Can we harness Nature’s Intelligence within the built 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 in perfect order.

By aligning with nature’s intelligence and order, cities planned and built according to Maharishi Vedic architecture and city planning create an influence of protection from inner and outer stress and crime and are less likely to be hit by natural disasters. They influence harmony, order, creativity, better health and good fortune for their inhabitants.
