The Sixth Station of the Cross: Jesus Meeting Veronica
The act of Greeting comes at the beginning of the cycle of the Surya
Namashkar series of gestures.
The theme of Veronica, or the "True Icon" is not really Biblical, but represents the way that the image of Jesus is imprinted on the cloth with which Veronica wipes the face of Jesus. This Image of Jesus is believed to be a healing
image, like that of the Holy Shroud. Jesus is the standing figure who
can also be understood as the axis of the Universe.
