216 Feet Ramanujacharya seated in honour on Padma Peetam is being held by 36 Elephants! These 36 elephants which represent valour and majestic nature are a part of God’s creation. At the same time, the tender and beautiful lotus shaped base is also part of the same God’s creation! 

As Swamiji says, ‘Rough and hard teeth work cohesively with the sensitive and delicate tongue because they work according to your intention. Similarly, rich and poor, educated and illiterate, strong and weak all should work together for one common cause as we all belong to one big family. If parts of the body begin to fight, there is no YOU! Understand the differences and make them unite you for a stronger world!’

On the 18th of Jan 2018, several key team members, Jagadish ji, Prasad ji, Mikkey ji, Mr. Woo, and several other designers discussed the mechanism behind the fountain of water that will shower from those 36 Elephants holding the beautiful Lotus. Some decisions regarding the design and details were taken and will be presented to Swamiji for final approval. There was also an in depth discussion on the lighting around Dynamic Fountain, the Speakers (recommended 7.1 system).

All this was based on the original proposal and the direction of Sri Chinna Jeeyar Swami.
