A key element of Vedic architecture is the insight that the human brain is sensitive to orientation, particularly and preferentially to east — the orientation of the rising sun. Research has already begun on Maharishi Sthapatya Veda principles to scientifically measure this phenomenon.
Brain researchers have already discovered that place neurons found in the brain provide information about a body’s orientation in a room or environment. Initial brain research on orientation, navigation, and placement shows brain stem neurons fire differently depending on one’s orientation.
This natural tendency of the brain to function with reference to direction follows the same laws of Maharishi Sthapatya Veda. These laws guide the structuring dynamics of creation, underlying all individual and cosmic values that sustain order in the universe.
Research is already providing evidence that Maharishi Vastus optimize how well the brain functions, leading to greater health, financial 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.
