The Shrine of the  Stupa

 

At this time at Merigar we are working on the shrine inside the Stupa of Enlightenment, in which the remains of our precious Master will be kept.

The shrine will consist of a case of extra-clear stratified tempered glass placed on a rectangular base made of fine white Carrara marble and equally precious yellow marble. On the sides of the base there will be eight panels decorated with natural mineral pigments, on which will be painted the seven royal symbols and the eight auspicious symbols. Usually these symbols are used during initiations and sacred rituals in order to benefit all beings. Each symbol has a specific meaning.

 

 

Inside the base will be placed: 5 cereals, 5 metals and precious and semi-precious stones. This type of offering is intended to benefit the individual who makes the offering and the place itself. Indeed, the teaching explains that everything is interdependent.

The decorations of the base have been designed combining oriental and western art.

This project will greatly benefit the area and our community around the world. For this reason it is important to carry it forward and complete it all together.
