UNIQUE MEDITATION HALL
A SPACE TO EXPERIENCE DEEPER MEDITATION
The 'Guru Shakti Dham' ~ Meditation Hall
A special meditation hall - the Gurushaktidham is being constructed at the Samarpan Ashram in Melton Mowbray. The design of the meditation hall and plan for the development of the estate is based on a simple, high quality, sensitively built environment, designed to support the meditative state. At the same time, our aim is to protect and enhance the natural environment, respecting the local biology and biodiversity and minimising our environmental impact as much as possible.
The estate is being specifically developed to take into account the special quality of Samarpan Meditation and its sacred centre ~ the energised Statue. Alongside this, attractiveness in the rural environment, longevity and sustainability are all important to us. Careful research was conducted to determine suitable solutions and natural materials for the facilities needed on the estate, including the Meditation Hall and its interior, to take the design to the next stage of development.
Within the Meditation Hall will be the 'Garbha Griha' ~ a sanctum sanctorum or sacred space ~ where the energised Statue resides. It will be built to have suitable characteristics to retain and amplify the high vibrations, and enhance the silence within the hall.
Another significant feature of the Hall will be a raised pyramid roof of glass, letting light shine onto the inner sacred space. A pyramid roof is known to magnify universal energy for those who meditate within the building, helping them to connect with nature’s flow, bringing experiences of peacefulness and wellbeing.
Due to generous donations and the volunteers’ unwavering faith in the project, along with the dedicated focus, preparation and research of the management team, Phase 1 of this project has been achieved and some components of Phase 2 have been completed~
