ABC's Nightline Features Maharishi Vastu

Maharishi Vastu, Fortune-Creating homes, and Maharishi Vedic City were featured in a great segment of ABC Nightline, Monday, July 5th.  For a link to the story, go to

ABC’s summary of the segment includes the following introduction to Maharishi Vastu:  "The primary characteristics of Vedic architecture, the most obvious one, is that ideally, buildings face east, the direction of the rising sun," said Jon Lipman, the country's leading Vedic architect. Lipman says the buildings at the university and most new houses in town are constructed in line with ancient precepts.

"Just like the organs in the human body, there is a right place for different kinds of functions within a building," Lipman said. "And so, a kitchen is typically in one location. A living room in a house is typically in another location."  Every Vedic building has a silent core known as a Brahmastan, which is lit by a skylight and is never walked on. Lipman claims miraculous effects.

"The results are that, families find that their lives are improved, that there's greater family harmony, that there is greater financial success, there's greater happiness," said Lipman. "There are many, many cases where members of a family had disharmony between them, and it dissolved when they moved into a Vedic home. There are many cases where even such things as chronic diseases were abated by moving into a Vedic home."

Lipman said "it's a real challenge" to be poor, unhappy or unhealthy if you live in a Vedic building. 

The Vigmostads [a family profiled in the segment] live in a Vedic house, and seem like happy customers.
