|ULLURU is the oldest natural monument standing with the profound
spiritual significance in the world. This huge sandstone monolith stands 384 metres high in the Uluru National Park in Australia (the Aboriginal name for Ayers Rock is Uluru). The rock is said to have many 'moods' according to the weather and the time of day as the sun moves across it, changing its colour from bright reds to pastel blues, greys and pinks. Ayers Rock has an extremely important place in Aboriginal folklore.
The local Aborigines acknowledge its spiritual significance and consider it so sacred that they advise the tourists not to climb it. Its here that life took birth. Ulluru is surrounded
by eleven landmarks and appeared in the very center of Australia 450 million years ago.

Creation of Ulluru
A long time ago in the ages past, in ancient land there were great mountain ranges
running the length and breadth of this Australia. Within the center of this land there was
a vast inland sea. What was to happen was one of the marvels of nature.
Over millions of years the waters of Mother Nature fell into the earth and washed over
these mountains. And through the ages the rains washed these mountains into the inland
Sea. On the ocean bed, the remnants of these mountains were laid down in layers. These
layers were made from many different elementsof the earth. Eventually they were compressed
to form highly resistant sandstone.
This continued for over millennia till one day, 500 years ago, the energy of the earth
folded, and titlted these layers from their horizontal resting position, to a near
vertical plane. Mother Earth then thrust this rock out from the ocean. She then removed
the less resistant surrounding rock, leaving the world's largest monolith standing in the
midst of the ocean.
One morning, as the sun slowly rose on an ancient land, the the first beams of the
sunlight raced above a vast inland sea, as they had always done, but on this day they
struck a massive singular form, which for the first time illuminated the earth with its red
glow ULLURU, the Mooladhara of
the Earth was born.As it manifests the myrid colours, and hues of its mother, the earth
the world is prevaded by the innocence and power of the Mooladhara.
