Maharishi Sthapatya Veda

Architecture in Accord with Natural Law

Maharishi Sthapatya Veda is the most ancient and supreme system of country, town, village, and home planning in accord with Natural Law - connecting individual life with cosmic life, individual intelligence with cosmic intelligence, and creating ideal living conditions on earth where everyone will feel, "I am living in heaven."

The Vedic Knowledge of Sthapatya Veda-Vastu Vidya - is the knowledge that establishes everything in the most orderly way so that everything is completely nourished by everything else. Maharishi Sthapatya Veda is the supreme science of establishment which places the parts and the whole, the individual and the universe, in perfect alliance with each other.

Unless homes and working places are in harmony with the Natural Law that harmonises everything in creation and maintains order in the whole expanding universe, the life of the individual will always remain off balance. Lack of balance between the individual and his Cosmic Counterparts will always be the basic cause of ill health, problems, and misfortune.

'People do not generally know that the orientation (north, south, east, west) of residential and office buildings contribute a great deal to success and progress in professional life; and health, happiness, and fortune on the individual level.

'A considerable amount of ill health, misfortune, and suffering can be eliminated by living and working in properly oriented homes and offices.

'Maharishi Sthapatya Veda promotes construction according to Natural Law, which takes into account the orientation of buildings in view of direction-north, south, east, and west.'

—Maharishi

People who live and work in buildings designed according to Maharishi Sthapatya Veda find that they:

  1. think more clearly and creatively
  2. make better decisions
  3. feel happier and healthier
  4. feel more alert and refreshed throughout the day
  5. enjoy more restful and refreshing sleep
  6. enjoy more energy and less fatigue
  7. experience less stress and greater peace of mind

According to the tradition of Maharishi Sthapatya Veda, houses and offices not built in accord with Natural Law can create problems:

  1. anxiety, depression
  2. illness, chronic disease
  3. blocks to creativity
  4. bad luck, financial loss
  5. obstacles to progress and success
  6. disharmony in relationships, breakdown of family
  7. anti-social behaviour and even criminal tendencies

The application of the principles of Maharishi Sthapatya Veda will eradicate the basis of the age-old suffering caused by the violation of Natural Law, and will fulfil the grand purpose of architecture and city planning - happy, healthy homes for problem-free life on earth.


'Because the individual is Cosmic, everything about individual life should be in full harmony with Cosmic Life. Maharishi Sthapatya Veda gives dimensions, formulas, and orientations to the buildings that will provide Cosmic harmony and Support to the individual for his peace, prosperity, and good health - daily life in accord with Natural Law, daily life in the evolutionary direction.'
