Mani Temple needs a nudge!

Postby zoltan » Thu Aug 16, 2012 11:45 am

Hello,

Mani Temple is a kinetic art installation inspired by the Buddhist prayer wheel, and we're 2/3 funded on Kickstarter! Watch our video and please consider backing the project: http://www.ManiTemple.com

The winds of the playa will spin Mani Temple's 30 wind-powered Buddhist prayer wheels mounted atop a curved wall. Below these are another 30 prayer wheels participants can spin with their own hands. Magnetic levitation bearings enable easy and long spinning action for maximum karma! Across from the wall is a pavilion holding a large 6' tall prayer wheel into which you can deposit your own prayers, intentions, and wishes. According to Buddhist tradition, each rotation of a prayer wheel activates all the mantras (prayers) the wheel contains. Spin the large wheel and support all the intertwined prayers, hopes and dreams of the community!

Please consider backing this project on Kickstarter: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/161 ... ani-temple

Thank you!
David
