When building in harmony with Natural Law, according to Maharishi Vastu architecture, it is really “natural” to be building sustainably with natural, non-toxic materials suitable to the local climatic conditions. This includes using materials such as wood, brick, rammed earth, popped clay (Liapor) and adobe, as well as natural finishes such as clay stucco, marble, ceramic tile, natural fiber for carpets, curtains and furniture, and healthy, natural, non-toxic paints and glues.
Vedic homes are not built near harmful electro-magnetic fields caused by such things as high-tension lines and microwave towers. Special precautions are taken, including shielding of all electrical wiring, in order to ensure that electro-magnetic fields are not propagated within the home. Ideally, all materials and appliances in Maharishi Vastus should be pure and healthy.
Increasing numbers of Fortune-Creating homes are being constructed with environmentally friendly, sustainable technologies, achieving highest LEED and Baubiology standards, which more completely align the buildings with Natural Law. This includes growing numbers of buildings with small or zero carbon footprints. They use such technologies as solar hot water, photovoltaic electrical power, geothermal, daylighting and rainwater catchment.
