Carefully crafted stupas are an important addition to your home altar. This petite gold-plated stupa cast in bronze, replicates the Kadam-style stupas popular in Tibet, thought to be introduced by the great Indian Buddhist scholar Atisha in the 11th century.
The simple streamlined design includes the decorative parasol top, with jewel pinnacle, above a spire of 13 discs which represent the 13 bhumis leading to enlightenment. The spire is seated upon a lotus-shaped plinth, and beneath that is the bell-shaped body mounted upon a double-lotus base.
Stupas, like statues, are hollow, and should be filled with mantras, incense, and precious substances before practicing upon. Through the generous efforts of our in-house Lama who has received these instructions from a genuine master, you can request your stupa to be filled here before shipping. To avoid extra delays, simply add a comment in the shopping cart. Please also set the intention to meet with an authentic master to have your stupa consecrated directly.
Measuring 8 cm high, and 4.5 cm in diameter.
