Two new, ground-breaking books

We are pleased to announce two new, ground-breaking books. The first, Enlightened Real Estate, written by successful real estate investor Barry B. Scherr, includes a special section by Maharishi Vastu architect Jon Lipman.

Enlightened Real Estate

Enlightened Real Estate challenges the contemporary wisdom as to the purpose of real estate – this book proposes that the built environment should re-establish the lost connection between inner consciousness and the world around us. For so many of us, despite major advances in technology, life is bogged down by inconvenience.

We are crowding together in increasingly urban environments, rushing around, battling traffic, eating on the run, and feeling as though there is never enough time. These conditions are symptomatic of an inadequate built environment. We are becoming more alert, aware, and connected, yet the environment is lagging far behind.

This book presents a new way to live in and think about the built environment.

“It gives a new vision for the potential of real estate to help people improve their daily routine, reduce stress, traffic, and pollution, and ultimately gain the time needed to focus on more meaningful priorities like interpersonal relationships and enlightenment,” said the author.

Enlightened Real Estate is a practical plan to make our homes and communities a crucial element in the greatest development in human history: enlightenment for everyone. Homes, neighborhoods, and cities can be built to satisfy every imaginable aspect of human need, desire, and luxury, while connecting the inner aspect of personal life, the Self, with the richness of daily life. The author calls his plan to accomplish this connection the Ideal Village.

Barry is a commercial real estate investor and founder of the Sundar Corporation, a national commercial real estate sale-leaseback company. As president of Sundar Corporation, he developed a fast-track, multi-property approach to sale-leaseback transactions for top companies, such as Best Buy and PetSmart, In the last twenty-five years he has studied how changing lifestyles and culture are transforming how we live and what we build. Currently, he is actively writing and speaking about the Ideal Village concept, which will revolutionize real estate development worldwide.

The book is available on Amazon, Barnes and Noble and Indiebound in both paper and ebook format.

The second book, written By Master Surveyor Roger Audet, is Measuring the World for Global Reconstruction. It explains how Maharishi Vastu architecture uses the global grid of latitude and longitude as the basis of town and city planning according to the principle of cardinal direction. This grid, known to the ancient Vedic civilization of India, is used in vaastu to create a master grid for the whole world.

Measuring the World for Global Reconstruction

In order to understand the significance of the global grid, the book chronicles the evolution of the concepts and techniques of global survey by civilizations throughout the ages. Historical milestones such as the creation of astronomical observatories and estimations of the size of the globe by the ancient Vedic civilization; the calculation of the circumference of the earth by the Greek mathematician Eratosthenes; the invention of the marine chronometer by John Harrison that resolved the famous longitude problem around 1760; the creation of the ‘metre’ by the new French Republic of 1792; the techniques of map-making from antiquity to the modern time; and many more give insight into the gradual evolution of our understanding of the earth’s shape and size.

These key developments of measuring the world from ancient times to modern are shown to support the techniques and mathematics of right orientation used in Maharishi Vastu architecture for planning auspicious buildings, towns and cities.
