Welcome to the Stupa Berlin Project!
Berlin is a world capital of diverse cultures and the cultural heart of Germany. It`s a place where all religions live in harmony – intertwined into a rich fabric in what is becoming a vibrant spiritual metropolis. Many traditions are represented here, among them also all Buddhist traditions. Both world wars started in Berlin and there are many remarkable memorials which remind on the holocaust during the second world war. A Buddhist stupa will strongly influence the development of peace and harmony between people regardless of religious faith or ethnic origin. It will help to heal the wounds of the past caused by a strong attachment and anger and sustain global peace and harmony. The positive effects of a stupa will spread and blossom for centuries. Stupas were built in Asia to prevent war, epidemics and starvation, to protect life and the global environment.
We invite you to be part of the truly wonderful project by supporting the Stupa for World Peace.
After a long preparation and with the support of several donors we have started in decembre 2016 to build the stupa in the garden of the nonprofit organisation Bodhicharya Germany. The planning and construction are supervised by Choje Lama Phuntshok and Khenpo Namgyal from the Lekshey Institute in Kathmandu/Nepal. The stupa will be the main focus of the Bodhicharya Centre. It`s outer shape is based on the renowned stupa on top of the Mahabodhi temple in Bodh Gaya/North India, where the Buddha achieved enlightenment.
We want to express our heartfelt gratitude to all donors. With your good wishes and financial support we were able to follow the demand of H.H. Karmapa, Ogyen Tinley Dorje. We invite you to participate in the benevolent project.
With your support we`ll complete the stupa in 2017 to benefit all sentient beings.
