The science of vastu architecture is the most ancient and complete system of architecture and planning. Focusing on the underlying proportion, placement, and orientation of communities and buildings, the principals of vastu are universal and can be applied to any architectural design style worldwide. At its core, vastu architecture connects individual life to the holistic value of nature’s intelligence. Maharishi Mahesh Yogi’s restoration of the knowledge and practicality of vastu for the modern world is referred to as Maharishi Vastu or vastu throughout the book Enlightened Real Estate.
