Maharishi Sthapatya Veda (MSV) is a set of architectural and planning principles assembled by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi based on "ancient Sanskrit texts"
MSV has strict rules governing the orientation and proportions of a building.
MSV homes are marketed in the US by Maharishi Global Construction, LLC, and by MSV Homes in the UK, both arms of the Transcendental Meditation movement. Several communities around the world have been developed using MSV principles. The plans for Peace Tower, which would have been the world's tallest building, followed MSV specifications.
