The stupa of Shamar Rinpoche is now finished; in order to make this area a new exterior place of practice, Jigme Rinpoche plans to pursue the development of the natural site to create diverse spaces: eight stupas, a large prayer wheel, and a circumambulation path connecting all of Dhagpo’s stupas.
Thanks to everyone’s engagement, the stupa that preserves fragments of Kunzig Shamar Rinpoche’s physical presence has now been completely financed by donations.
The stupa was completed within the budget of 310,000€, including the first stages of landscaping.
The final statue has been placed in the heart of the stupa and the immediate surroundings are completed.
All are welcome to come reflect, make wishes, and meditate around the stupa.
This second project will continue starting with the construction of height stupas.
A stupa symbolizes the different aspects of the path toward enlightenment. In the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, there are eight specific forms that recall great moments in the life of Buddha Shakyamuni. Emblems of peace and harmony, these edifices house wishing prayer scrolls, precious substances, and relics of great masters.
