The Meru Studs are an interpretation of Mount Meru. In both Hindu & Buddhist mythology, Mount Meru is a golden mountain that is considered to be the center of all the physical, metaphysical and spiritual universes. It is the dwelling place of the gods. As the world axis, Mount Meru reaches down below the ground, into the nether regions, as far as it extends into the heavens. All of the principal deities have their own celestial kingdoms on or near it, where their devotees reside with them after death, while awaiting their next reincarnation.
