“the structure of the universe”
The Maharishi Vedic Observatory is an open-air observatory of 10 masonry sundials is unique in the world for its ability to display in one compact form the whole structure of the universe along with all the movements of the sun; planets and stars. These instruments are based on a traditional reaching back thousands of years. The principle of the instruments of the Maharishi Vedic Observatory is demonstrated in the travel of the shadow caused by the Sun. The shadow follows the movement of the Sun, starting at the longest length, then disappearing, and then coming back into shadow again. This movement of the shadow exactly resembles the overshadowing influence of waking, dreaming, and sleeping on Pure Consciousness-this reality of the three is a mirage. Measuring the Sun from the shadow exactly resembles the phenomenon of locating Transcendental Consciousness from the state of waking consciousness. Waking state of consciousness is a shadow; it's the mirage of a string being mistaken for a snake.
The outdoor Maharishi Vedic Observatory consists of "ten, six feet tall, white, concrete-and-marble astronomical instruments arranged in a circle." Tim Fitz-Randolph is the man who developed the observatory, taking care that "each instrument is precisely aligned with the sun, moon and stars, and could be used to calculate their actual movements and has the potential to create inner happiness and balance in the physiology."
