Maharishi Vedic City, incorporated in 2001, derives its name from the Vedic principles brought to light by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, founder of Transcendental Meditation. 
The concept of a "Vedic City" was conceived by the Maharishi and a real estate developer and several others, began to actualize the vision for a Vedic town in 1991. The first resolution of the city council proclaimed the constitution of the city to be the same as "the Constitution of the Universe — Total Natural Law — RK Veda." More than a dozen developers purchased 50 farms totaling 3,000 acres (12 km2), some 1,200 of which were designated for the town itself. Together, they planned a city arranged in ten circles totaling about one square mile, along with paved roads, utilities, sewage and Internet. They then began the first phase of construction which included two hotels, various houses and office buildings. After one year, 46 structures had been built and more than $35 million spent on development.
