What is the MERU Master Plan?

The Luxury Apartments are a vital part of the ‘master plan‘ of construction on MERU‘s campus. The complete campus plan includes spacious flying halls, a beautiful community dining hall, the Maharishi Tower of Invincibility, the Peace Palace of Tony Nader, MD, PhD, Maharaja Adhiraj Rajaraam, and other facilities. Your apartment will provide the necessary support to help realize the master plan, so that both visitors and residents can enjoy MERU in its full glory.

About forty percent of the Master plan has been realized and built over the last 20 years. In the drawing below there are buildings in pink that have already been built. On the top right side there is Maharishi’s home – Maharishi Peace Palace where Vedic celebrations and other important TM movement meetings are being held. Behind there are 12 Raja houses, facilities for Mother Divine, and at the very back residential houses for members of Maharishi’s movement.

Where is MERU?

Situated in The Netherlands, the Meinweg National Park surrounds the MERU campus, and it‘s truly an enchanting place. Enjoy walking and cycling pathways, as well as hundreds of scenic spots in the forest, perfect for lifting the heart and mind.

City life – within a few minutes’ drive

The nearby city of Roermond is just a 20-minute drive away from MERU. There are numerous possibilities for shopping – from designer outlets, to little markets, to shopping centres and popular chain stores. In the old town there is a variety of cafés and popular restaurants. The city also offers many musical events, theatre productions, films, exhibitions, sporting events, walks and cycle tours. Just next to the old town is Maasplassen, with beautiful lakes, large and small.
