THE CAVE TEMPLES OF INDIA, 2004
Embodied in these rock-cut temples and sculptures more than 1500 years old is a knowledge of how our universe operates that dwarfs our present comprehension and opens the door for our culture's next stage of growth. The sculptures in these temples employ an unlikely palette of tools empowered geometry, intention, passion, stillness, and coherence to access and work in the realms of life-force energy (chi or prana). These elements enable the sculptures to act as sophisticated tools for chakra opening, healing, and direct connection with the sacred and other consciousness.
