David Lynch talks about Vedic Architecture

David Lynch talks about his plans for a Vedic bungalow designed according to Sthapatya Veda, Maharishi Vastu architecture

Legendary film maker and artist David Lynch speaks in his sincere, charming way about creating a Vedic bungalow, using the principles of Maharishi Sthapatya Veda.

David describes some features of Maharishi Vedic Architecture — Sthapatya Veda or Vastu such as:

– the building should be oriented according to the cardinal directions with its entrance facing due east, or alternatively north;

– the rooms inside the building have a specific place and proportion;

– there is a center of wholeness or Brahmasthan in the middle of the building;

– he mentions a roof ornament called Kalash that is often found as the crowning element on top of Maharishi Sthapatya Veda / Maharishi Vastu buildings.

What is most intriguing in this video is the fact, that perhaps one of the most creative people in the world, wants to learn more about this Vedic Architecture. David realizes that it may “limit” his creative freedom in the design process. So why would he do that?

The answer seems to be simple: Vedic Architecture, especially as revived in its completeness by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi and therefore called Maharishi Sthapatya Veda or Maharishi Vastu, is architecture in accord with Natural Law. It is a science that contains not so much rules, but rather knowledge on how a human creation, like a building, can be in harmony with nature’s creation. Then it connects individual life with Cosmic Life, individual intelligence with Cosmic Intelligence, and allows the owner and inhabitant to access more easily his full creative intelligence.

So there you go: by following some ancient knowledge, that, at first sight might seem to limit your creativity as a designer, artist or architect, you end up with an even greater free flow of your creativity inside such a structure.

This supports the approach of the David Lynch Foundation of developing the full creativity and brain of every student through Transcendental Meditation for happy, stress-free schools.

And how does one learn more about Maharishi Sthapatya Veda or Maharishi Vastu architecture?

As David mentions, there are certified Maharishi Sthapatya Veda consultants who will work with your and your architect to integrate these principles of architecture in accord with Natural Law into your design. Or you can choose to directly work with a Maharishi Sthapatya Veda architect, or, even easier, choose a house from the large portfolio.

  1. Cool … I would love to see David’s Sthapatya Bungalow

  2. Luis says:

    Mr Lynch should know that cigarettes contain 3000-4000 types of poisons and that certain amount of those are carcinogens. In order to have a good healthy life it is better to follow Ayurveda, Meditation and Sthapatya Ved and
    drop off those habits that are not life supporting.

  3. Marko says:

    I was also shocked to see him smoking. Makes the whole thing of him talking about healthy living ridiculous really..

    • sunshine says:

      I agree, but it also shows that anyone can use this knowledge of healthy living and architecture in harmony with nature.
      Some may start with healthy habits, some start with healthy buildings to improve life. So there is no reason not to have a healthy Maharishi Vastu house!

    It will be interesting to see David Lynch’s Maharishi Vastu house — how his creativity and ancient Vedic principles work together!

  6. Toby says:

    This proposed series of half-hour episodes documents David’s adventure designing and constructing a 400-square foot Vedic Bungalow, based on Sthapatya Veda Maharishi Vastu architecture.

    The streaming video featured on this website, and at VedicBungalow.com was produced to generate interest in this unique creative journey by one of America’s finest master artists.

    The series entitled “A Vedic Odyssey with David Lynch” is seeking sponsorship opportunities.

      Thanks for this link, Toby (www.vedicbungalow.com) where one can follow the progress of David’s Vedic Bungalow based on Maharishi Vastu (or Maharishi Sthapatya Veda, it’s the same).
