It was a wonderful experience being at the official opening of the Kalachakra World Peace Stupa at the Crystal Castle on Saturday 27th October attended by about 1500 people. For me it was the finale of many months of work and the official opening reminded me of it’s significance.
I have a deep desire to see real change happening on this planet as a result of our collective consciousness.
To me much of this world is symptomatic of the inner war that rages. If we are at peace within ourselves we will be at peace with everything outside of ourselves.
It is within me that I need to start. It is my own consciousness and understanding that will free me. The event and the Stupa itself reminded me (one person) of my true inner needs and the aspirations I have for all of us on this planet. It has been a privilege to be involved in the Stupa construction together with the monks, the owners of the Crystal Castle and the many others who were involved or supported the project.
Below is a short video of the days blessings and ceremonies by Sharon Shostak (Echonet Daily). The video does a great job of covering the highlights and significances of the event.
There are many ways to build domes and Domeshells system is only one of them. Domes are fascinating shaped structures which always draw the eye. They are also deceiving in that their appearance from the outside does not express a true sense of the size and the the feeling of the space created by the dome.
Dome structures around the world have stood up to some of the most extreme weather. Dome shapes are naturally one of the strongest shapes found in nature. Take an egg for example. Try crushing an egg between your hands by applying pressure at each end. You will be amazed at how much pressure can be applied.
One of the strongest systems for building larger dome structures is the system which uses an air form to create the shape of the structure and then, from inside, after a layer of polyurethane foam is applied to the air-form, shot-crete is applied in layers to cover a steel reinforced cage finally forming a steel reinforced concrete shell structure. A monolithic shell structure.
Although strength is not the only benefit of living in a dome there are some pretty persuasive reasons for living in one – especially if you live in a cyclone, hurricane or tornado belt area.
