Light of Truth Universal Shrine
Construction of the LOTUS began in 1982 under the guidance of Sri Swami Satchidananda and took four years to complete. Four years, 40,000 cubic yards of earth, and 1.6 million mosaic tiles later a monument to interfaith understanding was born.
On the morning of July 20, 1986, LOTUS was sparkling in the sun. Near the shrine’s Grand Archway over 3,000 people gathered to witness as the Light Of Truth Universal Shrine was dedicated and offered to the world.
