Our head of Research and Development, Parvata Muni Das, has been steadily working in his workshop for the past several months.
His project? A small scale model of the TOVP. His current focus is building a model of the main altar. The purpose of this time-consuming endeavor is to give the art department a visual aid by which to understand the placement of the main altar in the temple room. Variables that can be viewed and adjusted include the position of the deities, the distance between the pilgrims and the deities and the actual position of the altar in relation to the design of the temple room.
Capturing the intricacies of the altar design as well as translating the actual proportions into a small scale model require dedication and focus. Parvata Muni Das has brought his years of experience and qualifications to this strategic occupation. The staff at the TOVP are grateful to have him and his talents.
