The word chaitya is an Eastern Indian word meaning "place of worship". However, unlike the Western civilization, in Eastern culture the act of worship does not have to occur inside a building. It can take place in many different locations. For example, at an altar, at a stupa (Buddhist Shrine) or even underneath a tree. For me, the power that fashions the complex workings of the human heart are also echoed in the magnificent simplicity of a plant seed.
