Benefits of being interconnected with a Stupa
"A Stupa represents all aspects of the Dharma; it is the Dharmakaya, the perfect mind of all fully enlightened beings. Circumambulating stupas, or prostrating and making offerings becomes Dharma. And Dharma is the ultimate cause of happiness. Purifying without hardship and planting the seeds to enlightenment'' Gen Namgyel-la on behalf of VNOS pledged a generous donation in support of building an auspicious Stupa in Australia. The purpose for constructing the stupa is to unify the global Sangha of all Buddhist practitioners worldwide and to strengthen our bonds. It will enable us to establish the Golden Age of Dharma ‘Dzokden’ for the benefit of all beings. Recently the stupa was completed successfully. We are very honoured that VNOS made a contribution to this meaningful project.

The stupa is filled with countless precious relics, holy texts and statues from around the world. We are so blessed that we could have our name 'Venerable Namgyel Online Sangha' placed inside the stupa, which includes all the donors and students. Below are the photos of how our name appears and Rinpoche placing the names inside the stupa with some auspicious prayers to dedicate and seal the merit.
With our utmost gratitude, we rejoice in this tremendous merit created collectively by each of our members and donors! Because of you, we not only maintain VNOS online Dharma teaching, but also support various Dharma projects for the benefit of all sentient beings. May the karmic seeds we planted for ultimate happiness and the absolute freedom of enlightenment sprout quickly.
