21 Mar Grand Beginnings to a Grand Entry
TEMPLE GRAND STAIRS ENTRANCE READY TO RECEIVE FINISHES
Construction of the grand entry stairs structure has been completed. Now the finishes remain. Can you imagine yourself walking up the grand stair entry coming for your very first darshan at the new Radha Krishna Temple?
Now picture yourself encountering hand sculpted and cast reliefs and statuary as you approach the marble-clad stairs. Immediately your eyes feast on the stature, elegance, and beauty of the entry way. Gradually, you are soothed by the tranquil sounds and vibrations of divine chanting emanating from within.
Next, imagine feeling inspired by the aura and divinity of Shree Radha Krishna spilling out from inside the temple. Like metal to a magnet, you are drawn inside to experience the inner beauty and energy of their divine presence.
The construction team built a strong foundation over the summer into early fall. Through the winter the walls and the structural framing have taken shape. We have begun to witness the Radha Krishna Temple sprout from a seed of vision germinated with love and generosity. And with the shikhar installation, we have watched the temple grow toward the sky!
Over the past several weeks, the beautiful vision of the grand entry is finally coming true, one concrete block at a time. Dozens of concrete and masonry workers have worked hard to manifest the fruits of the sacrifice of so many who have generously donated their time, resources and funds to make the beautiful visions an imminent reality.
The grand stairs span about 20 feet wide, a bit over 40 feet in length. The wing walls step upward and reach over 17 feet high at their tallest point. The final beautiful marble finish, combined with concrete and other stairs materials required several steel beams for additional structural support.
The concrete and masonry crews aren’t the only ones creating access to Shri Radha Krishna for countless souls over countless future decades one block and one step at a time. Actually, each of us can claim this same incomparably honorable legacy.
