Photos of the new stupa’s ornamental details will be posted in our News Section when foundry work and gold leafing is completed.

Here’s a personal note from the KKR Stupa Project Manager:

Dear Friends,

KTTG , a non-profit organization, is sponsoring the building of a stupa in honor Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche. He took part in every step of the Tashi Gomang Stupa building, including locating the site it now stands on. 

Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche’s  Stupa is called an ‘Enlightenment Stupa’, one of 7 types of traditional stupas.  Further it is called an “Attendant” Stupa. In accord with the work Rinpoche accomplished, it is fitting that his 7-foot Stupa is 50 feet from the Karmapa Stupa.

The 16th Karmapa gave Rinpoche a long list of tasks in 1976.  Rinpoche accomplished them all, some of which were: creating the Seat of the Karmapa and Kagyu lineage in North America; translating some of the highest Tibetan scholars’ writings into English and Chinese, which formed the bulk of his teachings to his international students and are used all over the world to this day.  He also established the traditional 3-year Retreat in Delhi, NY

I invite you to please donate to this project. For those who have already donated to the building of this noble project, thank you.

You can write a check made out to “KKR Stupa Fund,” c/o Lama Zoe de Bray, PO Box 39, Crestone, CO 81131 OR you can donate online on the website.  I am happy to answer any questions you may have at: [email protected]

Thank you,

Lama Zoe de Bray, KKR Stupa Project Manager
