By shraddhavani on Mon, 16 Jun, 2014 - 15:27Calling all members of the worldwide Triratna community!

Radiating Love, For Thousands of Years

By VIRIYAGITA on Wed, 11 Jun, 2014 - 16:42The stupa for the late Dhardo Rinpoche is really on its way. I can’t begin to express what this means to me to see it coming into being. Not that I have ever lost confidence, but it is still heartwarming to see in the ground preparation for the foundation. the completion in sight. As Sonam, the stonemason, said: “It will radiate love for thousands of years”.

In many of her talks about the Aryaloka stupa project, Viriyagita, has shared a video about the building and dedication of the stupa at the New Zealand retreat center, Sudarshanaloka, I think this must be the most dramatically situated of the four existing Dhardo Rinpoche stupas at Triratna centers around the world, and I found the video to be quite inspiring. However, it left me curious about how the building of a stupa...
