New Directional Tiles for the Flagpole

Our flagpole, where the banner of the ritau flies high, has an often-overlooked simple compass structure at its base.

This is a photo from last April.

While our eyes are always drawn up to the flags’ inspiring dance against the blue sky, the monks have prepared a beautiful upgrade for the base of the flagpole.

Palaniswami designed these tiles fifteen years ago, with a state of the art Macintosh of those days.

We had them made long ago, but they sat in a box waiting for the right time. For the monks, patience is a key element of good timing.

They will be installed soon.
