Maharishi-Sthapatya-Veda® is one of the many trademarks of the movement.
Maharishis Vastu-Vidya is a 'revival' of a so-called 'Vedic architecture in harmony with the natural law'. It is supposed to describe the 'natural blueprints and structuring laws that make every single particle of creation remain in a state of perfect harmony with everything else'.
In this 'perfect' system the influences of the sun, the moon, stars and planets with respect to the north and south poles, as well as the equator, are taken into account.
('Strange') residential buildings, office buildings and settlements built according to Maharishi-Sthapatya-Veda combine the individual life with the Cosmic Life and 'ensure' that all good influences from the near and distant environment to the inhabitants good come, while at the same time all negative influences are repelled. It is supposedly designed to reconcile the individual with the cosmos.
