Details: Measuring the World for Global Reconstruction explains how Maharishi Vedic Architecture uses the global grid of latitude and longitude, known to the ancient Vedic civilization of India, to create a master grid for the whole world—the basis of planning according to the principle of cardinal direction. In order to understand the significance of the global grid, the reader is taken on a voyage of rediscovery that follows the evolution of the concepts and techniques of global survey by civilizations throughout the ages. This book gives practical insights into the key developments of measuring the world from ancient times to modern: The creation of astronomical observatories and estimations of the size of the globe by the ancient Vedic civilization; the calculation of the circumference of the earth by the Greek mathematician Eratosthenes; the invention of the marine chronometer by John Harrison that resolved the famous longitude problem circa 1760; the creation of the ‘metre’ by the new French Republic of 1792; the techniques of map-making from antiquity to the modern time, and many more details of the gradual evolution of our understanding of the earth’s shape and size. All these developments are shown to culminate in the techniques and mathematics of right orientation used in Maharishi Sthapatya Veda for planning auspicious buildings, thereby contributing to the fulfilment of Maharishi’s Master Plan to Create Heaven on Earth—Reconstruction of the whole world. 312 pages.
