Installation of Flag Post 6

Posted by
Devi (Chennai, India) on 21 May 2017 in Lifestyle & Culture and Portfolio.

A Copper sheet in which some Drawing has been done ( we call this Yanthra ) is placed at the edge of the pit.
This will be kept inside the pit and the Flag Post will be lowered and placed above this Yanthra. This has some symbols and numbers and letters on it to safe guard the place and fill us with energy.
