The Winter Season
There seem to be two movements--the roots of the Banyan tree come down to touch the earth, but the shoot which springs up from a crack in the rocks, reaches upwards.

It is in this context of the meeting of what is above, and what is below, that the shrine is constructed, reminding us that the Creator is always present in creation.
