“What did you say, ” was shouted across the temple floor. Pointing and miming followed. Then a head nod.
Since the sound of machinery and the chatter of laborers fill the ether with the healthy buzz of progress, devotees working on the TOVP site have been forced to find an alternative means of communication to speaking. Miraculously, it is a mutually understood secret language between those who spend hours together measuring widths, chalking lines and building models.
What may seem like noise to many alarmed visitors is a symphony of sound to the team of individuals behind the construction. Indeed, photographers are always being sent to capture images of the TOVP’s ongoing development. The latest album will not disappoint.
The first photo showcases the rise of the altars. In the future, crowds will stand here before the deities in worship. The next three photos record the advancement of the utility building. The arched windows add charm and detail. Always the centerpiece, the main dome is caught blossoming from a distance in two photos. The location of Prabhupada’s bridge is shown in the final photo. The piles have been placed and much of the work has commenced. This bridge will connect the Long building, the future accommodation of the pujaris, to the new temple.
Debris signals headway. Rubble is the by-product of ceaseless work. The TOVP continues its celestial ascension.
