Hi everyone,

Im currently in the process of making a meditation room at my house and i've decided to build me a meditation pyramid!

Never used one before but i've read that it can help a lot with the energy during the meditation so going to give it a shot.

there are many different specifications but i've got some long cane pieces in the garage so im going to cut them up and make it from this.

the Angles are quite important. The Great Pyramid in Egypt slopes at an angle of Approx 52° so I found a diagram of this and scaled it down to fit in the Meditation room. (4x 1.6m pieces, 4 x 1.52m pieces = 52 deg angle and a 1.01 height)

Here is a diagram of the great Pyramid -

and here is something similar to what im going to build -

It is said that meditation pyramids help to allow the person meditating to focus more clearly on their meditation. It is thought that meditation pyramids help to more clearly put some contemplation into the meditation session, allowing for a higher state of being. Open-framed meditation pyramids are said to produce a certain type of energy that is conducive to the meditative state of mind. It helps the brain reach another level of consciousness and awareness


They are not just built on a small home scale either for meditation!!........



Pune, India is the home of one of the largest meditation pyramids in the world. It was recently opened in 2002, and is 9 stories high. It actually serves as a building and can hold thousands of people. It was actually designed by a renowned meditation specialist and teacher named Osho

Not a bad idea , if you have the space for it, why not go the whole hog and get the sides made out of clear poly plastic? you know the 2mm - 3mm stuff.
At least it would muffle the outside world sounds that intrude sometimes allowing for a better meditation?

Wonder what the costs would be?

And I wonder what the rdifferences of having meditation in an enclosed pyramid as opposed to an open frame would be?

I want to do the same thing. I don't have anything to add but I'm eager to hear from people who have done this already and have any advice.

ive read that the effects can be different depending on what design your pyramid is.

The 52 degree angle for example can be altered therefore changing the energies inside. I'll go with the 52 first and see how it goes.

Im not sure the difference between enclosed or open would be. Will try the canes first though. ive got heaps of it out in the garage so wont have to spend any $$$


The sizes ive made it are borderline on being too small to be honest. Im 5ft 10 inches tall and I will just get into this thing. The room just aint big enough im afraid!

good question. i was searching through lots of meditation pyramid photos last night on google and i never saw any other shapes, just pyramids.

It would be a good experiment using a different shape.

Im afraid my brain power only just coped with working out the sizes for the pyramid. with a tetrahedron etc, i think i would be stumped!!

Think outside the 'pyramid'.

Instead of building something tangible that you cannot take everywhere with you, build a Holon of Balance.

It's the same principle except you take another 3D pyramid turned upside down with the bases touching. (so it looks like a 3D diamond shape)

Put yourself (or whatever you want to create balance for) inside the Holon of Balance with the center of what's placed inside at the center of the Holon.

You can create this ANY WHERE you are at ANY TIME. You can make it any color you feel inclined (I usually make it gold or purple, but I've also made it blue).The same cannot be said for your tangible pyramid. It limits your meditation to one place.

nice idea with the intangible, and very true. however, tangible does have its benefits as well, which is maybe even why we're here

and should you ever decide to fill in the walls of the pyramid, i would suggest copper rather than plastic, but you'll need to find it lying around somewhere cos it can get kinda pricey! copper is of course a great conductor and i don't know, plastic just has an insulating, plasticky, static kind of feeling.
but i'm sure anything does the trick just fine. glass is supposed to be good. anyway. blah. nice post and happy making

The problem with anything tangible is that it makes the fallacy of our existence 'real' to our ego. This is partly the reason for creating the Holon. The closer we get to 'reality' and 'truth' the more we need to distance ourselves from the things that keep us from it.
