Marking the Milestones of the Building Process

An integral part in the process of building a Maharishi Vastu home is celebrating three milestones in the building process.

Each of these events involves a short, unique ceremony. The first is groundbreaking, the second is laying the foundation stone when work is about to begin and the final is inaugurating the new house when the owners occupy the home for the first time. Each ceremony is scheduled at an auspicious time and day particular to the owner. To determine that timing, the owner will have a Maharishi Vedic® astrology (Jyotish) consultation and then the most auspicious date and time, (called a muhurta) for each of the milestones is determined. Each ceremony enlivens laws of nature that ensure the success of that particular and very important aspect of the building process and occupancy of the house. 

All over the world these ceremonies are performed in the prescribed way and in each case owners describe much the same feelings and experiences—a connection gets established between the owner and the land and the house that is not only very pleasant but that also begins to establish a sense of stewardship of the land and the home itself. And, many also experience good fortune that begins when the ceremonies are performed--the weather cooperates, contractors show up on time and do their work easily and effortlessly. Even the builders, who are not often aware of the mechanics of these events, are eager to participate after having seen the effect they have on their progress. This experience comes to you when you dig the first shovel of dirt in the groundbreaking ceremony, again when you lay the first stone in the foundation ceremony, and finally when you cross the threshold of the home in the inauguration ceremony.

We have put together a photo album of these events over the last few years and we hope you enjoy it!

One recent owner’s experience at her groundbreaking event in Florida:

“Something happened to me yesterday. I don’t even know if I can put words to it….I think we all had a special blessing yesterday, as a result of the love of pure consciousness that was gathered in that space. It was so playful and free--like being a child. There was a lot of wisdom standing on the lot yesterday. I felt like I had a transfusion of light energy. It was absolutely wonderful….”

From another home beginning in Manitoba, Canada in mid-February:

“We were able to do the ground-breaking ceremony and it was great fun”!

In another, recent ceremony, a Maharishi Vastu school inaugurated a new building on its campus in Thailand just a few days ago:

“At the auspicious time—close to noon—the director and our teachers started the inauguration ceremony to move into the building. It was sunny as you can see in the photo by a shadow on the ground. Around 1:00 pm when we walked into the building there was a halo around the sun. And, after we entered the building, the rain came down which we saw as a great blessing.”
