A Stupa is a spiritual monument to commemorate Buddha’s enlightened body, speech and mind. It represents a path to enlightenment. Enlightenment refers to an awakened mind and victory over suffering and ignorance.
Simply put, a Stupa becomes a home for all the Buddhas from ten directions and three times. It will radiate immense positive energy.
A stupa may last a hundred years, however the merits generated in the construction of a stupa lasts for all of eternity.
It is said that “You can’t take your money with you when you die.” There is actually a way to bring wealth in the afterlife. Supporting the construction of a stupa is like investing time, effort, money and resources in something tangible yet holy. Since the stupa represents Budhha’s enlightened body, speech and mind, it can be a tool for enlightenment. Seeing a stupa plants a seed of enlightenment in a person’s being. Therefore, people who contributed for the building, construction and maintenance of the stupa invested in the enlightenment for all beings, hence merits generated become limitless and eternal.
