The Geographic Brahmasthan of the United
Belle Fourche, South Dakota,
Center of all 50 states,
the center of soil, rocks, and dirt of the total unified country of the USA (including Alaska and Hawaii) - since 1959
|The Population Brahmasthan
or "Brain Brahmasthan" or "Brainmasthan" of the United States,
the Center of the American Brain and Mind, is
in Fairfield & Vedic City Iowa, 176 miles north of the population center of
the USA, Montgomery City, Missouri,
according to Dr. David Recheson, who used a computerized calculus
method (see below).
This is about 176 miles south from Vedic City, Iowa

Why is the Brahmasthan important?
Fairfield Iowa creates Brain Wave Coherence (BWC) from its location as the Brahmasthan of the American people, the optimal point for giving.
Light from the Golden Domes generously shines like a light bulb, not expecting much to return from the darkness, just the satisfaction from spreading light. In return, Fairfield Sidhas also receive enlightenment and good karma. Brain Wave Coherence (BWC) spreads outwards from the Consciousness Brahmasthan, and is somewhat influenced by the surroundings. From Fairfield, the coherence creating group can most evenly distribute coherence to the collective consciousness of the population of the United States.
For example, if the group moves westward, then that would decrease the coherence in Maine and Florida
while the coherence would increase in Alaska and Hawaii. The
significance of the Brahmasthan is the support of nature that a
coherence creating group gives to it, by practicing the Transcendental
Meditation and TM-Sidhis Program from that point.

MIU was founded in Santa Barbara, California in 1972
Some students resisted moving from California to isolated Iowa in 1973.

How Can The Locations Be Computed?
Maharishi was never told about Dr. Recheson's calculations.

Rick Shaddock (Professor of Computer Science at (GraduateSchool.edu ) is working on calculations that consider the relatively small, but important population of Alaska and Hawaii. These 2 states would move the Population Center north and west towards Fairfield, Iowa.
If we consider the population of Alaska and Hawaii, although relatively
this would move the centroid of the USA north west, and nearer to Fairfield, Iowa.

Maharishi was never shown Dr. Racheson's calculations but was right on.
Maharishi International University moved its campus from California to Iowa in 1974.
Maharishi chose the location by spontaneous cognition, confirmed by mathematics.
Nature provided the perfect location, near the Brahmasthan of the USA population.
In July 1790 the District of Columbia was
founded as a planned city near the geographic center
of the original 13 colonies of the United States. It was to be a fair horse ride for
Congressmen and Senators - equal distance from the northern and southern states.
Where is the geographical center of the United States?
The article is quick to point out, however, that none of the designated "centers" are truly precise or objectively determined:
Many variables exist when calculating the center of a land mass as large as the United States, and selective criteria and methods can be used, from the selection of different map projections, to defining the periphery of the shape with varying degrees of accuracy.
In fact, scientists at the Geodetic Survey have stopped calculating "centers" due to the imprecise nature of the task. Oscar S. Adams, Senior Mathematician for the U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey, even wrote, "Since there is no definite way to locate such a point, it would be best to ignore it entirely...."
