The idea is not that you're worshipping a piece of paper or anything. These things allow you to focus, to be in the right frame of mind to receive, and they are a form of respect.
This picture of the meditation hall will become interactive some day when the webmaster can get to it. Then you will be able to move your cursor over objects in the room to see enlargements and descriptions.
In the meantime, kindly accept his apologies and hopes that you can visit to experience the hall for yourself.
