This web site appears to be a service but it is actually a disservice to try to describe in words that which is beyond understanding and limited by our vocabulary and our minds to comprehend. That being said, this page is about the light fixtures with the mantras carved into them so that the subtle energy of the deity they evoke will fill the temple.
The Sanskrit language is used because of it's beauty and also because Leela wanted the fixtures to stimulate the heart instead of the mind. Above the entrance door is Gayatri Mantra: Om Bhur Bhuvah Tat Saviturvarenyam Bhargo Devasya Dhimahi Dhiyoyonah Prachodayat.
Many people place tattoos on their bodies so that the subtle energy of the image will be infused within. Experiments have shown that water that is photographed in it's crystalline state shows beautiful patterns when place upon positive words and ugly patterns on negative words.
Above each abstract goddess there is a strip light with a mantra carved and above that in the ceiling are skylights. Oak was used to defuse the light and color adds another dimentions and gives the light a softness as it surrounds us.
Ram Gayatri is carved into 3 of these lights. Om Dasharthaya Vidhmahe Sita Vallabhaya Dhimahi Tanno Ramaha Prachodayat
