Qs for Buddha Tooth Relic Temple

1/2
2/2

Religious relics hold a mystical charm throughout many theologies; for Buddhists more than most. Buddha was mortal, one of us, a man who left his indelible mark upon the consciousness of many. In that respect his remains hold a special significance. The beautiful new Buddha Tooth Relic Temple in Singapore is both shrine and museum, and in that unusual conjunction between faith and learning, is also a site of secular importance.

In the basement of the temple lies a small theatre intended for a variety of uses, seminars in particular but also films, workshops, conferences, and the occasional musical performance. The theatre's d&b audiotechnik PA system was installed by systems integrator Electronic & Engineering on the recommendation of CCW who acted as acoustic and AV consultants on the project. "The confines of the room are quite comfortable," said Chong Chin, project leader for CCW. "It accommodates a maximum three hundred persons, the d&b Qi10 loudspeaker proving to be an ideal choice for what is a wide but shallow space. It is small and unobtrusive, just three of them in left centre right configuration proving more than enough for the various demands of speech, live music, and film soundtracks. Adding a pair of Qi subwoofers made the system quite muscular without compromising any of its musicality."

The molar of Lord Buddha contained within the Temple is one of thirty-six He left on earth to provide a focus for worship. While the relic and its sixty pounds weight of gold adornments will invite many a visitor, it is the transmission of truth through means both spiritual and temporal that will provide a path to enlightenment.
