Temple Installation: “Ganpati Sindhu”

Behold the glory of Lord Ganeshaemerging from a Kamal Dal resting on a Shakti Stambhin absolute magnificence. Ganesha is the remover of obstacles, the patron of arts and sciences and the deity of intellect and wisdom. The Lord of new beginnings is seen here resplendentin spectacular Crystal Quartz and Dark Green Jade, instantly evokingfeelings of reverence, purity, joy and beauty.

This installation has been custom-created by JEWELCRAFTZ and THOMAS BLAKEMORE and conceptualized by Himani “Agyani”, a muchawarded astrologer and expert Vedic temple designer. Himani ji has come up with a unique and soulful design integrating her vast knowledge and experience in working upon the motivation, symbolism and social purpose behind the structure of temples. JEWELCRAFTZ works in close consultation with Himani ji for its work in temple installations.

Together we combine handcrafting of finest gem grade stones within depth knowledge of the Art, the Vedas and Vastu to create a temple in perfect harmony with the energy of the house and the people who live in it.

“Mindfulness lies somewhere between spirituality and religiosity,” says Himani ji. “To achieve that communion with the energies of the Universe we have to strike a balance in the temples we set up within our homes.”

THE GEMSTONES

In the temple installation,we have depicted Ganpati as a symbol of energy awakening. We have crafted the Shakti Stambh in Sphatikor Crystal. Sphatikis known to remove all negativity from our surroundings as it helps boost positive energy. The Shakti Stambh therefore forms the source of this pure divine energy that is conserved and protected within the Lotus flowers. This powerful energy is released when the lotus opens up spreading its petals.

Himani ji has selected the gemstones used in crafting this magnificent temple after careful research. While the Crystal Quartz enhances psychic abilities and aids concentration, unlocking memory, it also stimulates the immune system and brings the body into balance. It harmonizes all the chakras and aligns the subtle bodies.

The lustrous Dark Green Jade is propagator of physical growth and strength. It carries a strong connection to Earth and the divine kingdom, providing a better understanding and appreciation of nature and its soothing vibrations upon the mind and body. It harmonizes emotions and promotes inner balance.

THE ELEMENTS
Ganesha

The statues used in this temple installation are part of “GaneshaSindhu” a series of 108 unique Gemstone Ganesha sculptures, which JEWELCRAFTZ is carving in consultation with Himaniji. This series is first of a kind as all 108 Ganeshas differ in design and features. Each form in this series has a distinct name and significance in Indian Mythology.

On display are five sculptures. In the centre is the Bhakti Vighneshwar form with four arms holding shanku (a weapon to give protection from enemy), Dant (broken teeth: denotes One divine energy), Pash (to remove obstecles) and a Mishri (sugar). This form is worshipped during the winter full moon. In the Veer Vighnesh form, deity is depicted with 16 arms bearing weapons. He who controls and destroys obstacles is Vighnesh. He is also seen in the MahaGanapati form,‘The Great Ganesha,’ here he has some similarity with his father Lord Shiva , as he too has three eyes and also sports a crescent Moon on his head. He has his consort seated on his left lap and though single-faced, has as many as ten hands. The Heramba Ganapati is a five-headed iconographical form important in tantric worship of Ganesha. Heramba rides a mighty lion that represents the deity’s royalty and fierce nature and is said to be inherited from his mother Goddess Parvati, who often is shown riding it. The fifth form we have showcased here is the Bhuvanesh Ganapati and he is seen carrying a noose, a bow of sugarcane, a conch and the shoots of paddy grass.

Ganesha, the elephant head god has been one of the most captured divine forms in art and sculptures. You will always find Ganesha having a huge body and an elephant face. The huge belly symbolizes the created universe. The elephant head is the symbol of Gyanor Knowledge. Ganesha usually holds the modakin his hand, a symbol for the rewards of sadhna(dedication) and sacrifice.

Lotus

Lotus on which Lord Ganesha is seated in the Centre is an installation by Thomas Blakemore. The prominence of lotus and pillars in any temple design is evident through centuries in Hindu mythology.The lotus is an ancient and polyvalent symbol in many Asian cultures. Hindus revere it in association with many gods including Brahma and Vishnu. It is often used as an example of divine awakening and purity.
It took twenty of our expert jewel-smiths over ninety days to craft this spectacular temple. JEWELCRAFTZ has a holistic approach while crafting an installation.Our surfaces always tell stories. Our mantra is handcrafted brilliance. We define luxury as a differentiated offering that delivers symbolic and experiential value besides functionality.

What is Vedic Temple Design ?

India is the country for its rich Hindu culture and tradition. There is hundreds of mesmerizing Hindu temples across the country in different design, shape, locations; but not all temples are built as described in Vedic literature.
In Sanatan Dharma, God is envisaged in both statue and formless form. Yogis as well as seekers worship the formless Parabrahma, Devotees worship the same formless Parmeshwar in different physical forms. Devotees seek lord ganesha in the statue made by sand and lord hanumanji in any stone which is plated by chola is worshiped by people. Even then in our shastra many rules, directions, formats, guidelines and necessary inputs are given to make idols of various gods and goddesses. For example, if we want to worship lord Shiva in the Linga ( shivlinga) form There are different rules and guidelines for different types of devotees, for instance it will be worshiped differently by the Vaishnavas, the Saivite or a renunciates monk. Each of them will pray to different shivlingas .A detailed description is given in the proceeds and mechanism of various forms of shivlinga.
In Sanatan dharma we worship various forms of gods and goddesses and each has its vivid and unique importance. We have gathered all the information from official proceeds of the Sanatan Dharma, Puranas, Shastra. Our main motto is to construct all the temples and holy places in correct structure which is forgone now.

Wrongly placed of temple or statue may contribute to:

  1. Restless and tensions at workplace and home.
  2. Health problems.
  3. Unnecessary Increase in expenses.
  4. Blockages in income.
  5. Aggression, constant fear and anxiety.
  6. Lack of creativity and no success
  7. Problems in relationships.

Himani “Agyani” can check, alter, purify and understand all energies around us. Request a quote to purify or check your Holy Place (Temple).

हिमानी “अज्ञानी” – वैदिक देवस्थापति(Vedic temple designer)

“Himani Agyani” was born in a family where her generations did very Tough spiritual practices. She belongs to a secret cult and practices astrology and she is also a Vedic Devsthapati expert. She can easily absorb energies around her and can find answers from the universe.
This divine knowledge is flowing in her blood. She is a well known Vastu Expert too. So ‘‘Himani Agyani’’ can check, alter, purify and understand these energies around us. In fact she is the only one in the world right now who can make out whether statues/temples are rightly placed or made and are of high energies hence giving optimistic results.

On Going Projects

Importance of Vedic Devsthapati / Why it is Necessary.

As we all know in any kind of auspicious work, first of all we pray and call upon lord Ganesha to initiate any event because he is Pratam pujniya, after then other gods are worshiped. Now If we absorb closely we will find statues of Ganesha’s truck in different direction it could be left, right or in the centre.
Not only this even his number of hands vary from two to sixteen. Also in some statues he is placed with his wives Riddhi and Siddhi, or his mother. Sometimes even with goddess Laxmi ji and Saraswati ji. We know many varieties of statues exist but we don’t know the significance and importance of it. Many people don’t even know which direction truck of the lord Ganesha’s is auspicious and hence should be worshiped to get desired results.

OUR CONCERN

This is not only with Ganpati but with all the gods and goddesses. Many of us hold these beliefs and keep on following them without knowing the real meaning.
Something similar is happening with our temples today. Around 99 percent of the temples across the country are being constructed incorrectly, Not only this, the statues worshiped in them are also not according to scriptural guidelines and rules. Because of this the energies of the temples do not work and give desired results to the devotees and hence fail to fulfill their wish. Most of the devotees doubt why their prayers are not answered. The main reason behind this is that we are following and praying to the wrongly made scriptures and so this is the high time we should built temples according our ancient rules and guidelines.

Conclusion


About 99% of the temples which are constructed after 1960 s, have many defaults.
There are many guidelines in our vedas to practice and pray accordingly, all these methods changes as the nature of prayer changes. Similarly for every lord we have different rules and guidelines whether it is lord Vishnu, Adyashakti Jagadamba, Kartikeya, Ganesha, Bhairava, Brahma, Dikpal, Apsara, Gandharva, Pitra, etc.

Today people do not know that many misfortunes and even distress arise from lack of proper orientation of their temples and statues. Only properly oriented temples and statues constructed under observation of ‘‘Himani Agayni” can save the individual from being affected by destructive results. These Structures are designed to bring human beings and gods together but if these structures are not constructed on right place and using right positive energy it can bring negative results which one cannot even envision. Yes, most significantly every place has its own “geo thermal energy”. It is very difficult to check these energies and purify the negative one. If holy temples are not well constructed it won’t give any positive result. Place of faith and hope will then into place of Despair. Even if placement of temple in our home is north facing and in northeast direction, and is completely according to Vastu Sashtra. It may give unenthusiastic results. The reason is one it could be possible that energies of statues are not well energized. It is necessary and important to have correct statues and photos of god/goddess at home and in our society.

Hindu Temple Architecture

Hindu temple architecture is one of the most important forms of Hindu architecture. The basic style of Hindu temples will always remain the same but there are differences in them according to the architecture. The Tech architecture of the Hindu temple architecture Design reflects a lot about the synthesis of the values, believes, ideas and arts. It is believed that all the elements of the Cosmos that are responsible for creating and celebrating life according to the Hindu culture from fire to water, on from feminine the masculine, from kama to arth, etc. It is believed that the solutions to all the problems of life are in the temples and it is possible to manifest everything that you want by getting them constructed rightly.

The design of the temple architecture is done very carefully because there are very strong rules associated with them. It is believed that the souls of the Gods and Goddesses can be worshipped and the fruits are quick if the temple architecture is made perfectly. The temples are made according to mathematical and geometrical principles. The architectural elements of a Hindu temple have the capability to create a link between the divine and the man. A temple created following all the rules can help in attaining the spiritual knowledge and lead the soul to Moksh.

Indian Temple Architecture

The temples according to Indian temple architecture are constructed according to a symmetry. There are many variations guitar created on a square grid of padas. It depicts the perfect shape of the geometry. The common shapes are circles and squares. The indian temple architecture design is based on the principle that everything is connected with each other. Stop the design of the temple helps in connecting a human being with the divine or The Almighty.

Indian Temple designed with the principles of Indian architecture is capable of welcoming the divine souls through building the structured spaces that are mathematically correct, statues and carvings on the pillars, a network of beautiful art, etc. All this helps in achieving the necessary principles of mankind.

The appropriate site for Indian temple architecture is first of all decided. Most of the time the site is chosen for building the temple according to the presence of birds and animals, Gardens with flowers, water bodies, etc.

The layout of the temple is designed according to VastuPurushMandal which is the sanctum based on a geometrical design. VastuPurushMandal is a self-repeating and symmetrical Yantra. We follow this layout while making a Hindu temple design. It has been derived from mathematical principles, cardinality, myths, beliefs, etc.
