Enlightenment Stupa

4

The Stupa represents Buddha’s holy mind, Dharmakaya, and each part of the Stupa shows the path to Enlightenment. Building a Stupa is a very powerful way to purify negative karma (energy) and to accumulate extensive merit. Our stupa took us nearly 8 years to build and is situated just above our centre in a very stunning site over looking Whangarei and its harbour.

Benefits of building a Stupa as explained by Lama Thubten Zopa Rinpoche in Chenrezig Institute, Australia, in September 1994.

“The Stupa represents Buddha’s holy mind, Dharmakaya, and each part of the Stupa shows the path to Enlightenment. Building a Stupa is a very powerful way to purify negative karma and obscurations, and to accumulate extensive merit. In this way you can have realizations of the  path to Enlightenment and be able to do perfect work to liberate suffering beings, who equal the sky, leading them to the peerless happiness of Enlightenment, which is the ultimate goal of our life.”
