A Monumental Buddha Maitreya Statue in Scorpio
Astrology, Art & Sacred Sites: on the asatrogeographical position of the monumental Maitreya Buddha statue near Diskit Monastery in Ladakh and its position in Scorpio the sign of sculpting
The Maitreya Buddha near Diskit Monastery is a 32-metre statue located in Nubra Valley in the tibetan enclave Ladakh in India. The statue ‘s construction was started in April 2006 and it was consecrated by H.H. the Dalai Lama on 25 July 2010. The statue was built with three main functions in mind – protection of Diskit Village, prevention of further war with Pakistan and to promote world peace. Maitreya is the Buddha of the future and stands for the future of buddhism.
Astrogeographic position of morphogenetic field level 4 which describes the atmosphere of the statue itself: both coordinates of the construction site are located in solid, hierarchial water sign Scorpio the sign of sculpting, imaging, stone masonry and most important indicator for collossal sculptures though surely no plausible indicator for Gautama Buddha himself and also not for the coming great master teacher Maitreya. The fortress and stronghold aspect of Scorpio stands for a defensive monument and is very interesting here in regard to the position on a natural fortress like rock- as in the case of Sigiriya. The fact that the famous Buddhas of Bamyan destroyed by the Taliban were also located in Scorpio explains the resonance of the Maitreya Buddha statue at Nubra Valley with the topic of their destruction.
