A new article has been published on The Spiritual Sun: A Guide to Creating a Shrine.
The article, written by Lara Atwood and originally published on the Sakro Sawel website, explains in detail how practitioners of the Religion of the Sun can create their own personal shrine for their spiritual practice — as a dedicated space to commune with divinity.
From the article:
A shrine is a place set aside for spiritual reverence, worship, and communion. It could be your own, or shared with others. It can be indoors or outdoors, and range from something very simple in someone’s own home or garden, to something more elaborate and on a larger scale like you would find in a temple or church.
Essentially, whatever the scale, and wherever the location, a shrine can fulfill the same purpose and follow the same principles. This guide is for creating a shrine in accordance with the principles of the ancient Religion of the Sun.
Sharing pictures of your shrine in the forums
On a related note, our forums were recently upgraded, and now people can easily upload and insert images directly to forum posts and replies. This means users no longer have to upload an image somewhere else and then embed or link to it in the forums.
The editing functionality for forum posts was also improved recently, to make it easier to customize them with bold text, italics etc. A big thanks to Jenny Alswinn who added the new features. An explanation of the upgrades and how to post images to the forums can be read here.
So now that it’s easier to share pictures in forum posts, we’d love to see some pictures of people’s shrines, from anyone who’d like to share them. So if you’re inspired to setup a shrine (or shrines) and want to share your inspiration with others, then once it’s ready, feel free to post some pictures in the forums — it would be inspiring to see what different people come up with.
