The day has come. The suspense is over. After over a year of correspondence, negotiations and near failure, the blue marble has finally been ordered.
There are only three countries in the world which have this color marble, and Bolivia holds the jewel of them all. Understandably, such a rarity is in high demand but the TOVP was relentless in the pursuit to procure a ration. Fortunately, the quarry owner is a follower of Shri Sai Baba and is inclined to contribute to a project aimed at empowering the spiritual evolution of the world. He even joined the devotees for prasadam.
The blue marble is going to be used in the finishing work on the altars. It’s warm tones will beautifully contrast with the sterling white Vietnamese marble on the floors. The entire temple will be ornamented in the finest decorative elements. This acquisition landmarks an important stage in the artistry the TOVP will be renowned for.
