HOW TO SETUP YOUR SACRED PLACE
Before we setup the Sacred Place
let us consider some of the things we need. It is very important to get
all the materials ready before setting up your sacred place. Here are
the things you need to get ready:
You may have your spiritual practice in your bedroom, a child’s room,
or in a separate room if you have one. I use a corner in my bedroom.
Desk: I recommend a small desk with drawers.
Chair: Use a chair with straight edge
Table Cloth: Cover the surface of the desk with a Table Cloth. You
may choose your favorite color but I recommend white.
Sacred Place Master: You may choose a savior, an angel, your
wedding photo, family photo, parent’s photo, or your favorite photo. I
first used the Healing Christ but as my awareness evolved I replaced it
with the picture of the Buddha in serene contemplation which I later
changed to my own favorite photo. Now I use the image of Universal Love.
Thus the image you use may depend on the level of your awareness and of
course your preferences. You may also use the picture of a sunset,
sunrise, river, flowers, trees, plants, squirrel, pet, snow capped
mountain. I love flowers.
Candles: Have a couple of white candles.
Candle Snuffer: Have a candle snuffer to put off the candles after
Candleholders: You need a couple of candleholders for the candles.
Lighter: Have a lighter to light the candles.
Incense: Have a box of
incense. Choose your favorite fragrance. I use Myrrh.
Incense Burner: You need an incense burner to burn your incense.
Clock: Have a digital
clock to keep time.
Mirror: Have a small mirror to be used during the dedication
Temple Regalia: You may use a white graduation gown. I use a black
graduation gown with golden yellow stripes. This is mostly for temple
dedication and for special occasions.
Symbol of spiritual significance:
You may use any kind of cross. The popular crosses are the
Christian Cross, the Ankh Cross (Cross of Life), the Cross on which the
Earth is crucified, or the Maltese Cross.
Texts: You may use your favorite texts during your practice. I have
used the New Testament, the Tanakh, the Bhagavad Gita, the Qur’an, the
Rig Veda, the Dhammapada, the Upanishads, the Tao Te Ching and the
Analects of Confucius. I no longer have any of them on my Sacred Place.
Writing Materials: You need a diary, pen, writing pad. Be prepared
for the inspiration that could really change your life.
Music Player: You may use a music player for your spiritual music.
Music could help to set the mood as you prepare for your practice.
Prayer Beads: Prayer beads may come in handy when you need to
repeat sounds or mantra for many times. I have one.
Yoga Mat: You may also have a Yoga mat for practices on the floor.
I have a yoga mat.
