A shrine is more than a physical structure. It is a shrine when a physical structure pulsates with living energy and consciousness. We are living beings because in our physical frame—the body—there resides a living divinity, consciousness, soul. Our divine Mother Nature places living consciousness in a tiny little blob. One day, we manifest as a living being. Similarly, we invoke the benevolent forces of nature, we invite the guiding grace of the immortal ones, and with the systematic use of mantras, yantras, rituals, and prayers, we attract the healing and nurturing forces from all corners of the cosmos.
