Maharishi explains that by taking a map of a city you can verify yourself the misfortune created by inauspicious orientation of buildings and the fortune created by buildings with auspicious orientation according to the knowledge of Maharishi Vastu, Vedic architecture.
You have enough arguments, and if you want more proof, take a map of the city and see where the roads are and go to the houses that have south entrance. All the shops there will be facing losses. And go to those roads where the houses are east facing — the businesses there will be thriving. So verify for yourself.
After teaching Transcendental Meditation for 30, 40 years, I thought: what more can be done for the people so that families are not fighting, and people are happy and prosperous. And I found the knowledge of Vastu, the knowledge of how the house should be laid out.
