New Shrine Installation

Thanks to Jay’s loving volunteer labors, we have a beautiful shrine for the bust of Master in the piazza now. After service last Sunday, David and Gary carried the bust out into the courtyard, followed by everyone else, with chanting, and a dedication by Shanti. Rose petals and happiness poured out to bless the presence of the guru, lovingly symbolized by his likeness. Drop a petal of devotion next time you pass by....

A few photos here and lots more photos here.

I was stunned by the complete integration of this beautiful work of art in the Sangha's piazza. It immediately added, to my perception, an enhanced sense of Ananda's essential vibration. I silently shouted a hurrah. I felt this same vibration throughout the ceremony, starting when David and Gary picked up the statue and carried it outside. It was wonderful. Not only that, but Jay's pedestal is just perfect - it integrates wonderfully with the design and atmosphere of the church, piazza floor, and dignity of the shrine. Many blessings and thanks to all who made this work of art.
