Reconstruction of Existing Cities

Maharishi Vedic City Planning

We are all familiar with older city and town centres, congested or vacant, that would benefit from and be revitalized by re-structuring, modernization and opening up to more green space. At the same time, more and more satellite towns on the outskirts of cities desire to implement green and sustainable technologies and become self-sufficient and vital on their own while maintaining a compatible relationship with the inner city area.

Maharishi Vedic city planning has a fully developed concept that will fulfil this trend. Any existing city or town can, systematically and practically, be reconstructed in stages. The revitalized ideal Garden City will be anciently designed and modernly equipped to bring the most significant benefit to its inhabitants as well as the environment.

Transforming any Existing City into an Ideal Garden City

Phase 1

Controlling the city’s expansion by establishing a master plan with parallel roads in true east-west and north-south directions.

Phase 2

Construction of garden colonies and Maharishi Vastu satellite towns around the city, accessible from pollution, noise, and stress, set in landscaped gardens.

Phase 3

Starting to demolish the congested city centre, replacing it with a beautiful central garden (Brahmasthan), parks, and fountains.

The final stage of the expanded garden city provides ideal living conditions, including modern communication and transportation systems.

Here, we show one example where a large river is considered. In Vedic architecture and city planning, the easily verifiable effects of bodies of water are recorded. Therefore, the city is on some sides closer to the river, which creates an auspicious influence. On the other side, beautiful parks and gardens create a buffer and minimum distance before the city continues.

Comparing Ideal Vedic City Planning to Healthy Cells in the Human Physiology

It is striking to notice the similarity in the stricture of ancient Vedic city planning and the structure of healthy cells in human physiology, as well as uncontrolled, disorderly city growth and unhealthy development of cells, up to cancerous cell development.

Meissner Effect – Maharishi Vastu Effect (Maharishi Vedic City Planning Effect)

Another parallel from modern science we find in the Meissner Effect, which describes how a magnetic field penetrates an ordinary conductor, whereas a highly orderly Super Conductor is ‘invincible’ to the magnetic field, which goes around but cannot penetrate the Super Conductor.

Similarly, we can attempt to compare an existing city with ‘disorderly’ road and building layout to a highly orderly city, which is thoroughly planned and built according to the principles of Maharishi Vedic architecture and city planning, including the orientation of roads and buildings according to cardinal directions, only auspicious entrances (position of entrances that have been recorded to only bring beneficial effects, on the north and east), and further application of Maharishi Vedic Technologies that create coherence and harmony in national consciousness, reducing social stress and tension. Such an ‘ideal’, coherent Garden City will have less negativity from within and will be a protective shield by its attunement to natural law.

Personal Experiences and Scientific Research

The experiences of even those living only in individual buildings constructed according to Maharishi Vedic architecture (Maharishi Vastu) confirm the greatly beneficial effects of such buildings on health, family harmony, and prosperity.

Incidents of protection from natural disasters such as forest fires have also been reported. It should, however, be noted that a Maharishi Vastu design is not a replacement but an addition to common-sense protection measures.

The ancient Vedic principles applied in Maharishi Vedic architecture and city planning are time-tested and can be verified by anyone. This means that also modern science should be able to understand and verify them. This is already happening. Research already provides evidence that Maharishi Vedic architecture and planning optimize the brain’s functioning, leading to better health, financial success, and well-being. Also, doctors have conducted studies with their patients, verifying some of the Vedic principles.
