Many temples are run by trusts. Trusts that are made up of people.\nSometimes people disagree. And fight. And over time, with the addition of ego and the passage of time that enhances the go, these fights turn into feuds and the individuals garner support on opposing sides and then the feud becomes unsolvable.\nEven in temple trusts.\nAnd then the temple is locked.\nI\u2019ve heard such stories.\nAnd then I came upon one in Nepal.\nWith a traditional lock that was huge. No doubt with today\u2019s technology the lock will not be hard to break. But, the fact is that it is not physical strength that is needed to break it. Such locks can only be opened with the keys of reconciliation \u2013 with attitudes of cooperation, of each one willing to give more than they want to take, simply in the interest of the temple itself.\nAnd until that day comes, there will be no worship.And the Gods will have been defeated by men.\n\nKathmandu, Nepal\njm\nMarch 2015\nA temple lies locked.\nhindu, image, lock, locked, photograph, religion, Temple, worship.\nThe post A Temple Lies Locked appeared first on The Art Blog by WOVENSOULS.COM.
