A key element of Vedic architecture is the insight that the human brain is sensitive to orientation, preferentially to the east — towards the rising sun.
Brain researchers discovered that “place” neurons in the brain provide information about a body’s orientation. Specifically, brain research on orientation, navigation, and placement shows that brainstem neurons fire differently depending on the direction a person is facing.
This natural tendency of the brain to function with reference to direction reflects the principles of Maharishi Vastu, which derive from the Vedic texts. These texts explain the structuring dynamics of creation that underlie all individual and cosmic values, and sustain order in the universe.
This is how a Maharishi Vastu building optimizes brain functioning, and thus leads to greater health, success, and well being.
Scientific Research in Maharishi Vedic Architecture
Quality of Life Survey results
Do the people who live in Maharishi Vastu find that it works?
A widely-published research sociologist wanted to find out, so he sent a comprehensive survey measuring quality of life to several hundred people worldwide who live in Maharishi Vastu dwellings. The survey’s results are powerful; they lend a great deal of credence to Maharishi’s prediction that living in these homes would create an influence of good health, happiness, family harmony, and growth to enlightenment. They demonstrate the unique effectiveness of Maharishi’s revival of the Vedic principles of Vastu.
