The Symbolism of Stupa

Stupas are very holy, precious and important, said Khenpo Lodro Donyo Rinpoche on his short, but interesting talk at Pavilion of Tibetan Culture. For Tibetan people it is hard to differentiate culture and religion, and we can find stupas wherever we go, where Buddhism was introduced. Purpose of stupa is to offer a support to recall the enlighten body, speech and mind of Buddha. All the immesurable qualities of Buddha – loving kindness, compassion, joy and impartiality are contained in the form of the stupa.
