Temple Rising Begins

Today the first four arches were lifted and assembled to create the primary structure of the Temple!

After the initial arch was secured, the metal oculus was lifted and held in place by one crane. Another crane then lifted the next three arches.

The sun came out mid-afternoon, shining over the crew and spectators.

The Ashram was buzzing with excitement and we look forward to the next stage of assembling all eight arches by tomorrow.

    When the arches were transported across the lake and to the assembly site I felt I wanted to jump up and down like an excited child at the same time I had tears of Joy. This next stage inspires a breathtaking awe, quiet, so very quiet, but deep Joy.
