New Stupa In California

Earlier this year, we reported on the long life stupa for the incomparable Dzogchen master, and direct manifestation of Padmasambhava, Kyabje Tarthang Tulku Rinpoche (Tarthangpa Kunga Gelek Yeshe Dorje),  then under construction at Dharma Press, in Northern California. The stupa, and its associated support installations, have now been completed.

Very impressive joinery in the bell house. You do not see that class of work in the U.S. very often anymore. This appears to be one of the bells cast in Germany, by the Rudolph Perner firm, and now installed in the U.S. and India.

I believe, subject to correction, that the Odiyan temple complex and the Dharma Press complex now collectively host over 300 major stupas. That just goes to show what people can accomplish when they usefully engage their lives in the Dharma.
