of the favorite activities at the temple is what we call 'the experience'. Even
before the interior of the dome was finished it was spectacular and we found
it relaxing and healing and totally magical to be in such a centered and calm
space. With soft background music we chant 'I am that I am' , 'You and I are
one', other affirmations and mantras as we gaze up into the dome.
this section is about the dome, why is this picture of people laying on the
a view of the dome at night. It looks totally different in the daylight. It
is organic and feels alive with energy. The spokes are carved with holographic
paper inserted behind the cut outs. In the daytime it shows a rainbow of colors
that subtly change as your eye moves. Also in the daytime wisps of colors
are seen as if birds have every so slightly brushed against the background
a skylight behind the hub of this 3 dimensional chakra (wheel). The rim of
the hub and of the edge is blue and carved so that multicolored Christmas-
type lights shine through.
pseudo-stained glass skylight design in the center of the hub is symbolic of
the 7 chakras. The form associated with the base chakra is a square, the 2nd
chakra is the crescent moon, the 3rd is the triangle, 4th is the 6 pointed star,
5th is a sphere, 6th is the lingam (this with the shape of Lakulish
merged), and the 7th is the crown and is beyond form so the lotus petals were
used. It is as if a higher energy is looking down upon us and sees one chakra
within another, within another. The colors are not accurate in this photo. Must
be seen to be appreciated.
