Maharishi Vastu follows timeless building principles based on the universal rules of natural law. In this sense, we are truly sustainable, as the building is structured to be fully supportive to those inside, as well as promoting well-being to the environment. 

In addition, we recommend natural, non-toxic building materials in construction. We also place an emphasis on photovoltaic energy generation and other sustainable strategies. We also recommend permaculture landscaping design-a truly sustainable way to live!

One reason why our buildings feel so good to be in is that they are built using non-toxic materials with an emphasis on natural lighting. Ideal for those with chemical sensitivities, not just the building promotes good health-the design and layout do as well!

We can design according to almost any traditional or modern style of architecture. Maharishi Vastu architecture is a profound system of nature’s abstract principles that can be applied to almost any architectural style. 

Sometimes, when Vastu homes are built in close proximity and in one style, observers may conclude that this is the Maharishi Vastu style. However, these examples may simply be including regional preference, historic or national traditions, or local zoning ordinances — in much the same way any neighborhood may contain similar-looking homes.

We applaud your desire to make your existing space more compliant with the principles of Vastu. Unfortunately, we do not advise on remedial measures for non-Vastu homes, land, or apartment buildings because such advice yields only partial benefit. 

If your building is in alignment to the cardinal directions, you may be able to gain some benefits by orienting your activities to their most-supportive directions. Pointing one’s bed toward the east or south, facing a work desk to the north or east, and only using northern or eastern entrances are all simple ways to gain some beneficial influences.

There is a step-by-step process to building with the Maharishi Vastu system that starts with site selection. Each step in this process is just as important as any other, and in order to ensure that you live in a true Vastu home or work in a true Vastu building, we do not compromise or skip steps.

Building a home using Maharishi Vastu architecture is like building an ocean-going boat. To remove any important part or replace it with a cheaper alternative would result in an inferior product, leaving you and your family at risk. We suggest that the life-nourishing support of proper Vastu should not be a secondary consideration.

The certificate each homeowner receives when construction is complete verifies the building is built exactly according to Maharishi Vastu architecture. We stand by what we offer, and the only way we can ensure you get the high-quality product you deserve is by making sure we follow our procedures for design and construction exactly.

We can do the design ourselves, or we can consult with your own local architects who are not trained in Maharishi Vastu design.

We hope you will consider looking more closely at building a Maharishi Vastu building to bring all the wonderful benefits to you, your family and your business.

The Kalash is a vedic roof ornament that serves as a junction point between the building and the cosmos. While it’s not required, it is an important part of the Vastu influence. The Kalash we recommend was designed in close collaboration with Maharishi Mahesh Yogi and is based precisely on the Kalash in the Vedic lit

The Vastu fence is a very precise element that defines the space the building occupies, and it is integral to the design. We say house + fence = Vastu. 

Since a Maharishi Vastu building is designed to be in harmony with the universe, the influence from the building extends into the landscape, providing greater protection and coherence beyond the front door. A Vastu fence or wall marks the extension of this influence. Its proportions and measurements are set according to the ancient formulas of MVA.

Fencing options for style, materials, and design of the fence are almost limitless, as long as they incorporate the key Vedic dimensions appropriate to your project, and the fence is beautiful.

The pertinent effects of sunlight do not differ in the Northern or Southern Hemisphere because the sun still rises in the east and sets in the west. Maharishi Vastu architecture is based on universal laws that apply across the planet.

East is ideal, and north is also possible. The effects are profound and worth the extra effort it may take to lay the city out in this way. The city will give its citizens the influence of the total support of natural law for all time. 

There is already a city that is in accordance with Maharishi Vastu architecture. It is Maharishi Vedic City, Iowa, USA, which was masterplanned according to Maharishi Vastu city planning principles, and in which every building is a Maharishi Vastu design. For more information about it go to 

An integral part in the process of building a Maharishi Vastu home is celebrating three milestones in the building process. There are three significant moments in building any building that are traditionally honored in many of the world’s cultures. Each of these events involves a short, unique ceremony. 

1) Groundbreaking
2) Laying the Foundation Stone (when construction begins)
3) Inauguration Celebration (the first time the owners occupy the home)

Each ceremony is scheduled at an auspicious time and day particular to the owner. To determine that timing, the owner will have a Maharishi Vedic® astrology (Jyotish) consultation and then the most auspicious date and time, (called a muhurta) for each of the milestones is determined. Each ceremony enlivens laws of nature that ensure the success of that particular and very important aspect of the building process and occupancy of the house.

All over the world these ceremonies are performed in the prescribed way and in each case owners describe much the same feelings and experiences — a connection gets established between the owner, the land, and the house. This is not only very pleasant, but it also begins to establish a sense of stewardship of the land and the home itself.

Many also experience good fortune that begins when the ceremonies are performed; the weather cooperates, contractors show up on time, and they do their work easily and effortlessly. Even the builders, who are not often aware of the mechanics of these events, are eager to participate after having seen the effect they have on their progress. This experience comes to you when you dig the first shovel of dirt in the groundbreaking ceremony, again when you lay the first stone in the foundation ceremony, and finally when you cross the threshold of the home in the inauguration ceremony.

The principles of Maharishi Vastu are mirrored in the architecture of some of the most ancient cultures. A few examples of historical architecture that incorporate some of the principles include Borobudur in Java, the Great Pyramid in Egypt, many Native American village layouts, castles and towns in Slavic countries, and many of the Wats in Angkor, Cambodia.
