Velkristan’s Nirvana

  • Linear Location

    2100 Block NE 10th Ave, Portland, Oregon, US (45°32'16"N 122°39'19"W)


This plaque honors an extraordinary place, visible only to the pure of heart. Some Velkristani’s believe that the springs are the densely compacted essences of the Columbia (Stanklyk to them) and Willamette (Wilhamenta to them) rivers, which disappeared upon merging, once allowing the sea to flow to Portland.


It is visible from the sidewalks. Do not disturb occupants.

Public Dedication

A special place. The public dedication was 6:30 on October 10th. Nice crowd. Good Velkri Cane Springs Punch.

Text of the Marker

The part of the story installed here:

Velkristan’s Nirvana

Here on this spot shone the Velkristani paradise, a comfort of sweetness and light not just for those who are gone. Even today the pure of heart can glimpse the Velkri Cane Springs pouring purest sugars from the earth in endless glowing flow, as beloved creatures, human and otherwise (but known only to the witness), are sustained and thrive. To devout Velkristanis, this place was heaven on another earth.
