The body of the stupa is now constructed and assembled at Jampa Ling and the three compartments are filled. Many students took part in the filling of the boxes with the guidance of Rinpoche. These boxes were placed in the compartments as the stupa was assembled.
The base compartment in the lion seat of the stupa, contains the stones, earth and water collected by many students of Rinpoche, as he requested, from all the counties of Ireland and many special sites as well. This means the benefits of the stupa will extend to all places in Ireland. The base also contains many items from nature such as grains, herbs, precious metals, flowers, fine cloth etc. These are the gifts of the natural world and if we are fortunate enough to have these items available to us in life, we have the basis of freedom to practice the dharma.
Short mantra: OM DHRUM SOHA OM AMRITA AYUR DADE SOHA
The thirteen rings above the bumpa represent the thirteen stages of a bodhisattva. Above this are the umbrella, sun, moon
and tigli signifying dissolution into enlightenment.
