Last Sunday night Lama Zopa Rinpoche sent us further precise instructions for the stupa – making the project ever more amazing. First of all he confirmed the stupa should be filled exclusively with the Four Dharmakaya Relic Mantras which is unusual for a stupa. How Rinpoche explains the benefits of these mantras is mind-blowing:
These mantras are the highest relics of Buddha, relics of the dharmakaya. Other relics, the ones that we normally see, such as relics of the robes or part of Buddha’s holy body, are secondary relics. These four mantras are the highest relics.
Like one worldwide family, the nuns at Kopan nunnery in Nepal are currently rolling these mantras.
Rinpoche also gave instructions to place a statue of Lama Yeshe inside the actual vase of the stupa and to surround the statue with Lama Yeshe’s crystal mala which has been carefully looked after by Lama’s disciples, most recently by Lennie Kronish.
Donate now to help us bring this project to completion. Our current target is $28,000.
May all who contribute in any way to this project reap the fruit of pure guru devotion, the root of the path to enlightenment, and may all their temporal and ultimate wishes be fulfilled.
