This 8.5 inch Stupa is made from brass inches in the Bhutanese design. Stupa's are a monument to enlightened activity and often contain the relics and ashes of beloved teachers. The Buddha said to even gaze at a stupa guarantee's enlightenment. We send with each stupa a small bag of blessed and concreted items that can be put inside. If you do not wish you put the items inside you can place them in any area you want protection, purification, or blessings.
Quote about stupa by His Holiness Dilgo Khyentse, Rinpoche:
"This stupa is called a dharmakaya stupa. Within it, the guru dwells unchanging. The Buddha said that whoever sees a dharmakaya stupa will be liberated by the sight of it. Feeling the breeze nearby the stupa liberates one by its touch. The sound of the tinkling of the small bells hanging on the stupa liberates one by their sound. having thus seen or experienced this stupa, by thinking of one's experience of it, one is liberated through recollection."
