Mongolia Embraces Maharishi Vastu® Architecture:
An Interview with Innovator Bulgan Murun

In a landmark step for Mongolia, Bulgan Murun has successfully completed a pioneering project–the nation's first Maharishi Vastu home. Her family's home blends durable materials with the natural beauty of interlocking wood logs. Read our Q & A article below.

How long did the construction of your Vastu home take?

Bulgan: Although the timeline from the groundbreaking ceremony in June 2021 to completion in August 2023 suggests about 27 months, actual construction was only 14-15 months. Our winters are long, so construction halts from November through April.

Could you tell us about the materials used in the construction?

Bulgan: We chose a mix of materials for durability and natural aesthetics. The ground floor is built with concrete blocks and a structural reinforced concrete frame, as is true of most homes in Asia, while the upper floor walls are composed of no-nail interlocking wood logs.

What were some of your favorite aspects or challenges during the project?

Bulgan: Every challenge seemed to present a solution. For instance, when our local Vastu architect was unavailable for the groundbreaking due to illness, international Maharishi Vastu consultant Hannu Siika stepped in to guide us, ensuring the move-in ceremony went ahead as planned.

What inspired you to build this property according to Maharishi Vastu architecture?

Bulgan: This property has been in the family all of my life; we have had a summer cottage on it where I grew up playing and bonding with nature. So, when I got the news from my Maharishi Vastu architect that our land is highly suitable for a Vastu building, I was thrilled! Our design is influenced by Bhutanese philosophy, reflecting gross national happiness and Buddhist elements, which are very similar in Mongolia.

Bulgan: After the completion of the Vastu house, I felt a strong sense of accomplishment and confidence in me that even made me think that "This is Mongolia's first Maharishi Vastu house, which I led; Now I am confident in leading a project to build Mongolia's first Peace Palace.”
