Tallest Vishnu Sculpture in World – Biggest Idol of Hindu God Vishnu

The tallest sculpture of Hindu God Vishnu is located at Garuda Wisnu Kencana (GWK) Park in Bali in Indonesia. This biggest sculpture of Vishnu remains unfinished. The current height of the statue is 23 meters (75 feet). 

The original plan was to build a 146 meter gold plated Vishnu riding Garuda on top of an 11 storey entertainment complex. If completed this would have been on the tallest statues in the world. But Bali Hindu religious leaders opposed the commercialization of Hindu Gods as they felt its massive size might disrupt the spiritual balance of the Bali island.
Mandala Garuda Wisnu Kencana, or Garuda Wisnu Kencana (GWK), is a private cultural park on the Bukit Peninsula at the southern end of the island of Bali in Indonesia.

Teachings of Anandamurti Gurumaa

You have created anger and jealousy and you very well know it. Therefore, no one else can cut that except you. Anger and jealousy is part of your mind. You have given space in your mind where the creepers of anger have grown and where the creepers of jealousy have come. The basic reason for the anger to come in anyone’s mind is that there is too much of ego and there is a big dictator in you who wishes every thing to happen as per your wish and if doesn’t happen, it makes you angry.
Jealousy is basically part of feeling incompetent and incomplete, non-successful and as long as you continue to compare yourself with someone, there is no chance that you can come out of the jealousy.
Japa which is being done without warm feelings, without affectionate heart, without devotion, will not ripe any fruits at all. The changes in human mind are only possible when a person takes the stock, takes control of the situation & realizes that these are my flaws and I have to come out of these. Anandam…
