The Octagonal Gazebo – Interpretation by Dr. S Ramakrishna Sharma
The Octagonal Gazebo near the Food Court epitomizes Vedic Cosmology. Its eight pillars, five steps, 16 spokes in varied color granite flooring, 24 equal segments on the floor all these fall in line with “Ashtadha Apara-Prakruti” eightfold Nature, Five Great Elements, Sixteen aspects of Purusha Consciousness, Twenty four Tattvas of Sankhya, Twenty Four lettered Gayathri Chandah of the Vedas, the Space within the Gazebo representing the individual living being (microcosm) and the Space outside representing the Cosmic Consciousness of Purusha.
"We did not think of all these when we constructed this Gazebo."
Yes, this precisely and unerringly points at the universal fact that the Spiritual Reality is the basis and foundation of all that exists and all that we need is the EYE to see and comprehend how and at what levels Nature unravels the mysteries.
