beach from Oshawa, Ontario, Canada

Nice. Were you there for a retreat?

13 Mar 2019 10:58am

@beach: No beach..we just spent two hours and that was not enough.Most of the time was spent inside a hall where there was a God figure ( we call this Shiva Linga) and since the roof over the deity was made of a special stone--- moon rock..which captures water from the air and it gets dropped on the idol as a drop every 24 seconds. we were there and watched this. We also sat here and meditated..the ambiance was so peaceful and beautiful!

With your explanation, I know now that the roof is made of moon stones. A veritable place to meditation.

13 Mar 2019 4:23pm

@Claudiel: Thank you Claudiel. Pity no photographs were allowed there ! That hall was great!!! In fact, I was asked to remove my silver anklet ( with just three small bells and hand it over to the monk in the front desk as they wanted pin drop silence) !!

Beautiful image of this large building with a dome roof. Nicely captured Devi. Glad that you spent good time meditating infront of Dhyana lingam inside. Thank you Devi. :)
