Here we have a couple of bowls in the background that have dried for a few months and are ready to put back on the lathe for final turning. I, the foreground we see a “jamchuck.” This is used as a base to attach the bowl after the outside has been tools and sanded to its final form.
Here, we see the jam chuck with the bowl snuggly fitted on to it. Prior to this, the jam-chuck, made of pine in this case, was turned to the exact diameter of the inside of the bowl rim. Then the assembly was mounted on the lathe and the bottom was brought into final form, as seen in this picture.
This is the inside of the bowl

In our teachings we're both monistic and theistic. In the beliefs of Saivism the idea of the three worlds is the basis and key to understanding temple worship, theism. The inner worlds are there to help you. The essence of the soul is already the same as the essence of God Siva, monism. You just have to find it.
