KKR Stupa Project

KTTG is dedicated to building a stupa in honor of Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche. The process has begun on June 26 with Sa Lhong (ceremony to request permission from the deities of the land to build). In the coming weeks, we will be leveling the ground, building retaining walls, and pouring the foundation. The second ceremony will include the placing of the phurbas at the eight directions in the foundation. Khenpo Lobsang of Vajra Vidya has been performing these sacred ceremonies for KTTG.

Fundraising continues for the KKR Stupa. To support KTTG in the completion of the stupa project, click here to donate online or mail your donation to Lama Zoe deBray, PO Box 39, Crestone, CO 81131.
