INTERVIEW: Rebuilding cities through Vastu Shastra

KATHMANDU, March 7: Dr Eike Hartmann, a German national, is an ardent believer of Sthapatya Veda and Vastu Shastra.
He argues that modern cityscape is chaotic and affecting our daily lives. To address it, he proposes developing houses and cities in line with the Sthapatya Veda and Vastu Shastra. “When we build cities as per the Sthapatya Veda, we will enjoy the benefits of the Vedic knowledge,” he says.

Another coherence creating community is located in Rendlesham, Suffolk, United Kingdom. There a “Maharishi Garden Village” has been created. This development within Rendlesham is constructed in a very special manner in accord with ancient principles of architecture in accord with Natural Law, the principles of Maharishi Sthapatya Veda. This kind of architecture defines the orientation, placement and proportion of buildings to promote maximum comfort and good fortune for the occupants. These principles have been applied in a beautiful Suffolk style to achieve cultural continuity. The village will have its own school by 2014. The village consists of currently 50 houses.
