A special gathering of leaders, thinkers, managers and volunteers was held at the BAPS Hindu Mandir site in Abu Dhabi to review the ongoing project. Swami Brahmaviharidas emphasized the passion and devotion with which stone artisans are carving in remote villages of Rajasthan. All esteemed attendees, including senior officials were awe-inspired by this video that reveals the mesmerizing craftsmanship that is reviving age-old spiritual art.
The revival of art is more than excavation, restoration, and preservation of old ruins and ancient art. Whilst all three are equally important to protect world history and heritage, the creation of art is perhaps the greatest gift of all. The BAPS Hindu Mandir in Abu Dhabi beautifully exemplifies this by not only reviving 10,000 years of stone craftsmanship but also by recreating it for future generations. Inspired by authentic Hindu temple architecture, this remarkable endeavor is setting in stone the universal values of life found in Hindu scriptures and ancient civilizations across the world. This captivating video encapsulates the depth, detail, and delicate artistry of the Mandir’s carvings. Going beyond showcasing the amazing process, it reveals the simplicity of the master craftsmen in their original, humble, and natural surroundings.
