Aerial view of Bodha Stupa

Jan 25, 2012 | Views: 2,197

Generally stupas are the physical representations of a Buddha’s mind. They come in 8 main shapes. Each shape is equal to the representation of Buddha’s mind.

They can contain:

  • Relics of Buddha
  • Relics of High monks
  • Relics of attained masters
  • Sutras
  • Mantras
  • Multiple images of Buddhas such as statues/tsatsas/pictures/paintings/precious items
  • Wealth vases
  • Blessed items like from sand mandalas
  • Even consecrated bones/nail/hair of ordinary beings/animals can be placed inside… this would generate great merits for the deceased in their future rebirths. And stupas can come in all sizes from one inch to one story or anything

Stupas are built to purify karma, sanctify an area, calm an area with many natural disasters, bring good energy/luck to a region, enshrine the remains of holy beings, bless the environment and animals in the region and also they can be built as an act of spiritual devotion to commemorate a special event eg. Buddha’s birthday.

When the stupas are built, many will make prostrations, offerings of butterlamps and circumambulation around them. It is believed these acts will purify the negative karma associated strongly with the mind also body and speech. Negative karma blocks spiritual realization and higher states of existences.

You will see stupas in all Buddhist countries in their unique styles.

Here’s an aerial view of the Bodhanath Stupa in Kathmandu, Nepal…You must visit by hook or crook once in your life..and Nepalese culture is beautiful also…so much to see and learn in Bodha… You can call this the Bodhanath stupa or simply the Bodha stupa. As you fly into the Kathmandu International airport, you will see this amazing stupa through your window…

The Bodha stupa contains the relics of Lord Buddha. Thousands make worship each day and hundreds of thousands visit per year. I have gone many times. I thought to share this picture with everyone for a blessing.

    This is a stunning aerial view of the Bodha Stupa. Even though the stupa is amidst busy shops and streets, the number of people who circumambulate it during the morning and evening are enormous. One can feel the vibration of strong positive energy when walking among the many people who are circumambulating the holy stupa in the same direction. I so much wanted to experience that again! Thank you for this sharing.

    Bodhanath Stupa is really beautiful. Outside the area, it is a bustling city of Kathmandu, Nepal. There were lots of noise and dust. But once I step into the Stupa area, suddenly the whole energy was so different. It is so much calmer and quiet. I’m really fortunate to be able to attend the pilgrimage trip to Nepal recently. Going to all these holy places is really blessing. Thank you Rinpoche for making it available for us.

    Very beautiful and wonderful Stupa a very sacred place to visit once in our life time. I will definitely visit in the near future as its such a Holy place . The Bodha stupa contains the relics of Lord Buddha,many people visited and circumambulated around them. By doing so we can purify our negative karma, body speech and mind .That is the reason why thousands came and pay homage to this most sacred of Buddhist sites.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing ….

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this post about Bodha Stupa. Stupas are very holy because they represents the Buddha’s enlightened mind. Some of the Stupas might even contain sacred relics from the Buddha or high lamas. This is why it is very beneficial for us to circumambulate it. We can purify our body speech and mind negative karma when we circumambulate a Stupa with the correct motivation.

    There was a story about a fly that is following the smell of dung and unintentialy completed a round around the Stupa. Later when the fly is being reborn as a human, he has the chance to become a monk due to the merit that he got from the unintentional circumambulation. This shows that how powerful the mind of the Buddha is.

    一般而言,佛塔是佛陀思想的实体表现。它们有八种主要形状。每种形状都象征着佛陀的思想。

    它们内部可能保存有:
    – 佛陀的舍利/遗物
    – 高僧的舍利/遗物
    – 得道大师的舍利/遗物
    – 经文
    – 心咒
    – 各种佛像,例如塑像、擦擦、相片、画像、各种珍贵的物品
    – 聚宝瓶
    – 诸如来自沙曼陀罗的圣物
    – 甚至是常人或动物的骨头/指甲/毛发也可放置其中……这会为往生者将来的转世积累巨大的功德。佛塔的大小也各不相同,小至一寸,大至一层楼高不等。

    建立佛塔可以净化业障,圣华地域,平复天灾频发之地,为当地带来正能量/好运,供奉圣者遗体,加持当地自然生灵。另外,佛塔也可以是虔诚信徒为纪念特殊事件,例如佛陀的诞辰等而建。

    佛塔建成后,有很多人会到那里跪拜,并在周围贡献酥油灯,绕行祈祷。据说这些做法会消除与心灵,身体和言语密切相关的恶业。恶业会阻碍我们在修行上的领悟和生存状态的提升。

    在各个信奉佛教的国家,大家都能见到风格各异的佛塔。

    这是位于尼泊尔加德满都的博达哈佛塔的鸟瞰图……一生之中无论如何一定要来参观一次。另外尼泊尔的文化也很是美妙……博达哈佛塔很值得一看,值得了解……人们管它叫做博达哈大佛塔,或者简称为博达佛塔。当你乘飞机飞抵加德满都国际机场时,就能从舷窗中看到这座令人惊叹的佛塔了……

    博达佛塔中保存着佛祖的舍利。每天都有成千上万的人在此膜拜,每年到来的人更是数以十万计。我已经去过很多次了。我想与大家分享这幅照片,为大家祈福。

    詹仁波切

    感恩仁波切的分享与开示

    因在仁波切的爱与加持下,让我们即使是打开电脑,都先有殊胜的机缘能在这里看见这伟大的佛法建筑物(庄严的佛塔),并了解到有关佛塔的意义

    祈愿我们都有机会能亲身的到哪里绕行祈祷,去除我们修行道路上的障碍,我也祈愿,我们克切拉禅修林,也能建立起,如此一样的的庄严佛塔,利益一切有情众生

    感恩仁波切,祈愿您长驻在世,常转法轮

    Despite the hustle and bustle of the shops around Bouddha belies the air of tranquility and devotion palpable by all who come to visit and pay homage to this most sacred of Buddhist sites. The unique Nepalese ancient architectural style complements the air of sanctity the emanates from the holy remains interred within and also from the scores of pilgrims that shuffle clockwise around the stupa. If all goes well, I am going again this come Christmas. I think this must be my 4th or 5th time travelling the Kathmandu Valley. Love it!

  7. Adrian Cho on Sep 22, 2013 at 7:04 pm

    Wow… This is such a very beautiful and wonderful Stupa, that it is very holy place and feel so peaceful. When I looks on the pictures, it’s really feel so bless 🙂

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this nice post.

  8. Girlie Ooi on Nov 25, 2012 at 12:58 pm

    I visited Nepal some time back with a group arranged by a travel agent. Bodhanath stupa was on our Must-Visit list. We were told by the tour agent that as we leave the main gate, we should not turn back so that our wish to return to the place will come true!

    Well, it sure worked for me. A few years after that, I made another visit to Nepal and sure enough I ended up at Bodhanath for my cicumambulation.

  9. Han on Jun 16, 2012 at 12:42 pm

    I remembered 2008 a group of 60 people went to Nepal pilgrimage with rInpoche, we visited many holy places and Bodha stupa is one of my favourite place , we chatted Migsema together with Rinpoche and circumambulate the stupa few times and Rinpoche reminded us that was a pilgrimage trip, made strong prayers not for ourselves, but for our enemy and loved one. I like the energy and with the true blessing from guru, this was definitely a very fruitful and life changing trip to me.

  10. Wan Wai Meng on Feb 19, 2012 at 12:02 pm

    At the stupa in Nepal, many people would circumambulate everyday doing their mantras and practises. A stupa is like a spiritual battery to energise us for further spiritual practise. The stupa pictures are really beautiful and a mark of enlightened minds. If we have the chance to go for a pilgrimage GRAB it! Going for pilgrimages to such places is way to awaken virtuous and good imprints in our minds. Nepal especially is spiritual homeland 🙂 , the energy is very uplifting.

  11. Su Ming on Jan 30, 2012 at 10:35 pm

    I have heard before that Atisha had circumambulate at this stupa. And a lot of great Buddhist teachers including our Rinpoche has been there. Therefore, to me it is a very holy site. If you are visiting, when you enter the gate of Boudhanath Stupa, remember to make strong prayers and then circumambulate.

    The best time to visit Nepal is around end of March/April or Sept/Nov as the weather is very nice. Remember to visit Kechara Lounge!

  12. Dee Dee Quah on Jan 29, 2012 at 11:27 am

    Beautiful. Yes, I will go and visit one day, hopefully soon..

    Thank you Rinpoche.

  13. Frederick Law on Jan 29, 2012 at 10:59 am

    Thank You Rinpoche for the explanation on the symbolism of Stupa and also the content of the majestic Bodha Stupa. The Bodha Stupa looks amazing from aerial view, and even more splendid during the night with all the lights shining around the Stupa, it is just breath taking.

    I would love to Visit Nepal one day and visit Bodha Stupa and make prostration and circumambulate around it. Thank you for Sharing Rinpoche. with folded hands.

  14. David Lai on Jan 29, 2012 at 9:51 am

    The great Boudhanath Stupa is one of those iconic Buddhist sites that is full of people always. Pilgrims and peddlers wandering about its sacred space, hawking wares and shuffling about while a shop or two blares out the chants of Om Mani Padme Hum. Thanks to Rinpoche, I have been there for a number of years, circling around the stupa while muttering prayers.

    I am no psychic and I couldn’t feel the sanctity of the place considering all the noise, pilgrims and tourists. However, I don’t think the sanctity of the place is not measured by what we feel but our prayers and motivations. Sorry, I am being a bit preachy again. Also the thought that Guru Rinpoche and other earlier Indian Pandits have travelled here to circle the stupa in devotional silence must mean that it is holy.

  15. lucy yap on Jan 28, 2012 at 12:55 pm

    These beautiful pictures brings back wonderful memories while I was there with the team through Rinpoche’s kindness.Many people from all walks of life circumambulate this stupa.We chant mantras and turn the prayer wheel as we circumambulate.Incredible feeling of calmness and peace!
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these photos.

  16. Carmen Koo on Jan 28, 2012 at 5:08 am

    oh my, wonderful pictures these are. Makes me want to fly straight to Nepal right now, do prostrations, make my prayers/aspirations and just chant mantras non-stop before it. Many people circumbulate the Bodha Stupa each day, spinning the many prayer wheels along the walls as they stroll along.

    I had the immense fortune and opportunity to visit this world heritage last year, and my oh my, was it beautiful.

    It’s true what it says above, that a stupa brings calm and peace to an environment,as well as positve energy. The entire area surrounding the Bodha stupa fell nothing short of being peaceful and calming. Infact, the feeling cannot be described, as any description would be an understatement! Nepal is so full of spirituality and peace. It is a beautiful country!

  17. abby on Jan 27, 2012 at 2:12 pm

    As you fly into the Kathmandu International airport, you will see this amazing stupa through your window…

    wow! This is just like a landmark for Nepal! what a beautiful Buddhist country! wish to go there one day. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing all this. I never know that there are so many things than can be put inside a stupa.

  18. Elsie Toy on Jan 27, 2012 at 9:27 am

    I love to visit these holy place this lifetime before I pray that I am able to make it. I have never crave for to visit any of the Christian holy place when I was a Roman Catholic but since i became a Buddhist I have wanted to visit all these holy place like these one and all the temples. Thank you very much Rinpoche for sharing this and may I be able to make it to these places.

  19. susan lim on Jan 26, 2012 at 4:50 pm

    Beautiful. Looks so grand. I love the aerial view, surrounded by so many buildings. Very fortunate to live near such a holy stupa.
    Beings gain tremendous blessings when they circumambulate around the stupa, be involved in building a stupa or contribute in any ways towards manifesting a stupa or statue for that matter.

    Thought you might want to take a look at this blog post to see what’s inside the statues here in Kechara!
    http://blog.tsemtulku.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/kechara-13-depts/new-statues-get-their-fill.html

    This is an opportunity for all to be involved in sponsoring the holy images inside the statues. How about sponsoring $1/mantra and pledging towards whatever number of mantras you wish to sponsor each month for year 2012!

    For details, please contact siongwoan.chua@kechara.com

  20. yek yee on Jan 26, 2012 at 6:56 am

    After reading Rinpoche this post then I just realized that how a stupa can benefit many sentient being included animals too. I would like to relate this post with Rinpoche short teaching around two hours ago, let’s me copied for you to read:

    “Animals and imprints:

So many birds and animals to feed in bentong when we have KWPC there in forest! Exciting. 

I will set up Buddhas all over the forest to bless animals and feed them daily!! So they take rebirth as powerful dharma teachers to spread dharma. When the animals see and eat near the Buddha statues (due to our prayers) they plant seeds to become Dharma teachers and practitioners. We must feed lots of animals tirelessly with mantras blown on their food and or put statues for them. Important to feed animals. 
Share with others to put Buddhas in carports and always feed birds n animals. Good practice.”

    A stupa build up will be a very good imprint for many many people, even animals live nearby there area. The stupa has provide a platform to plant an imprint or we called as Dharma seed to all who need Buddha help. The Buddha seed will be forever until you enlightenment. No matter you become a fish in next life or next next life you will become a rabbit but the imprint of the stupa will not be change or forget. It will be continue one lifetime by one lifetime.

    If in my stay area can build up a stupa for everyone to get the blessing. I would like to do it. A stupe is so popular among all of us. Everyday, Bodhanath Stupa in Kathmandu was crowded, they are chanting at there…..etc. But one thing I need three of you if can get standby, sure will more grateful.

    Please go to oversea have a look. You will be surprise.

  21. Lily on Jan 26, 2012 at 6:05 am

    Bring back fond memories of this holy site,circumambulations of the stupa, prayer flags fluttering in the wind, soft mummurings of mantra being chanted,lighting butterlamps,quaint little shops dotted around the stupa.Oh, how Katmandu had left an indelible mark in my heart and would wish to return with the family.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the significance of stupas and posting these lovely pictures.

  22. Dechen Cering on Jan 26, 2012 at 1:55 am

    Thank you, Rinpoche la!

  23. Paris on Jan 26, 2012 at 12:57 am

    I LOVE this post, thank you. Just seeing the stupa – whether up front just 10 meters away or in a photo, makes me stop breathing for a moment, for its sheer majesty. In daytime, all the prayer flags of reverence; at night, all the butterlamps of wishes and hope. Thank you for the clear explanations on the significance of stupas, which makes the whole thing even more important and magical now. And most of all, thank you for allowing me those 3 months to be a part of creating our very own bit of heaven – Kechara Lounge – right in the heart of that heavenly metropolis.

  28. William on Jan 25, 2012 at 4:22 pm

    I love this place. The atmosphere is so nice and has positive energy. Always full of people circumambulating the stupa. I could just sit there the whole day and watch people go by at Kechara Lounge or at a rooftop cafe nearby. It is an enchanting place and so holy!

  29. Nicholas on Jan 25, 2012 at 1:10 pm

    Thanks Rinpoche for the explanation.

    I also heard that there are over 50 Tibetans Gompas (Monasteries) constructed around Boudhanath. As of 1979, Boudhanath is a UNESCO World Heritage.

    I wish I could visit this holly stupa one day.

  30. Wai Kee on Jan 25, 2012 at 12:14 pm

    thanks for this beautiful article and explanation. finally i know what is stupa meant for and it make me appreaciate all the beautiful stupa i saw when i visited Bodhgaya and Ladakh, as a backpacker, in 2004. i took out all the old pic and relook at them again now. too bad at that time i didnt know what it means or else the trip would be even more meaningful. thank you Rinpoche.

  31. freon on Jan 25, 2012 at 11:40 am

    So beautiful! Wish the KWPC have this stupa.

  32. fang on Jan 25, 2012 at 11:23 am

    Thank you for the lesson and sharing the photos of Bodha stupa. I have always wondered what is in the structure, like that of the sacred Kaaba. The night shot of the stupa is amazing. There is somethings special about it – a sense of calm radiating to its surrounds. Love it!

  33. Victor on Jan 25, 2012 at 7:32 am

    Definitely I will visit this place as soon as I can 🙂 so holy! Thanks for sharing, Rinpoche. I learnt something new and important today. Thanks a lot.

  34. Mc on Jan 25, 2012 at 3:24 am

    Thank you Rinpoche. I have been fascinated by stupas, especially the Bodha Stupa for quite a while. It is magical even to look at its picture. I hope I have the merit to make prostrations before it soon.

  35. Lew on Jan 25, 2012 at 2:27 am

    Yes! I really like this place. Don’t forget to do prostrations while u r there!

  36. Serena on Jan 25, 2012 at 2:01 am

    Thanks Rinpoche for sharing the photo of Bodha Stupa with explanations. It really fill up my knowledge. I really like the night view of Bodha stupa. Somehow I feel calm when looking at the photo. I wish I can visit there and enjoy the calmness and photo shooting.

  37. elizabeth hurwitz on Jan 25, 2012 at 1:50 am

    Wow. Terrific photo, Tsem Tulku Rinpoche. And thank you for the information about stupas in general. Hope you’re enjoying a lovely day today. All best, eh

    Amazing Angkor: A Guide to the Buddhist Temples of Siem Reap

    Cambodia is where the world’s largest religious structure ever built can be found — Angkor Wat, the greatest legacy of the mighty Khmer Empire. Meaning ‘Temple City’, Angkor Wat was originally constructed as a Hindu temple but gradually transformed into a Buddhist one commencing from the late 12th century.

    During the 7th century Tang Dynasty of China (618 – 907 CE), there arose a great Buddhist master named Xuanzang (602 – 664 CE), who became a famed monk, explorer, scholar, writer, and translator. He is particularly famous for his journey to India, which took nearly two decades to complete, from 627 – 645 CE, and his careful translation of various Buddhist scriptures.

    Over the years, as the influence of his work spread, many variations of his name arose such as Tang Sanzang, Xuanzang Sanzang, Xuanzang Dashi, and Tang Seng. In fact, his story and works became influential in other Asian countries, where his name took on localised styles of pronunciation, such as Vietnam, where he is known as Huyen Trang; Japan, where he is celebrated as Genjo; and Korea, where he is called Hyeonjang. One of his greatest written works, the Great Tang Records on the Western Regions, provides stunning accounts of his travels, including the geography, customs and political descriptions of the kingdoms he visited in Central and Southern Asia. Due to his courage, perseverance, passion, and great learning, Xuanzang is considered to be one of the most illustrious figures in Chinese history.

    The most glorious period of the Monastery was during the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911) when it was converted into a Lamasery by Emperor Shunzhi (顺治帝) in the year 1656. In order to further increase the faith from Tibetans and Mongolians, Emperor Kangxi (1662-1722) bestowed the title of Provincial Commander-in-Chief to the monastery’s Senior Lama and ordered the whole state of Shanxi to allocate contributions to the temple. The roofing tiles of the Monastery were also changed to royal yellow glazed tiles in the years 1683-1691, like those used for imperial buildings. All Lama temples were then under the control of Pusa-Ding as the Imperial authority had made it the highest leading position of the region. The site has been the accommodation lodge for Qing Emperors, Mongolian warlords and Tibetan Lamas whenever they traveled to Wutaishan for pilgrimage.

    For Ku Shulan, papercutting was her heartfelt passion, which manifested in endless inspiration. Her works are colourful, full of images, and vibrant in colours, which can’t be created by a mind of mental distress or pessimism. Her legacy was not only the papercutting arts of great artistic value, but also her spirit of tenacity, perseverance, and not giving up in the face of difficulties.

    The Thangka of Chakrasamvara and Vajrayogini

    This form of the deity is known as Sahaja Heruka Chakrasamvara. He appears in a simplified form with only one face and two arms embracing the consort Vajrayogini. In some ritual texts she is referred to as Vajra Varahi; however, her most common name is Vajrayogini, or Vajra Dakini. The colour of Chakrasamvara is blue and Vajrayogini is red. Their general mood and appearance is semi-peaceful and semi-wrathful.

A young boy has to endure so much difficulties and rejection even from his own family members but amazingly he did not give up and continue to live independently. We can see how cruel human is, even family members do not want to accept him. They should have just find out more about HIV and learn to take care of A-Long and not letting him live alone by himself. Really hope he is with a good foster family or charity home now.

    Ten Reasons Your Dog May Develop Behaviour Problems

    While dogs don’t experience higher emotions such as shame, spite or contempt, they have the same range of basic emotions as we do, such as happiness, sadness, relief, frustration and fear. These feelings are essential in helping dogs learn about the world, and encourage them to behave in certain ways to protect or help them. Barking, biting, chewing and many other common dog behaviour problems are often misunderstood or mishandled by dog owners. If a dog feels fear, for example, they’re likely to seek out safety from the threat and gain a sense of relief, while the positive feelings they get from cuddles and grooming encourage good relationships with those around them.

    The Reasons Birds Hit Windows and How to Prevent It

    When a building has mainly glass windows instead of walls, birds are not able to capture visually the fact that it is solid. It will just be a space to explore and as such, the birds do tend to fly into the glass windows and often seriously injuring themselves. This is an article to teaching us a few methods to overcome this problem and to keep birds away in safety.

    I am surprised China is actually quite advanced in environmental protection. Back in the 1960s, they had already started their environmental protection project. Back then they didn’t know if they would be able to grow trees on barren deserts but they did not give up and they keep trying. 57 years later, they created the biggest man-made forest. This is simply amazing. China does not look at short term benefit or return. They look at the long term effects.

    Kazi Dawa Samdup (1868 – 1922) was one of the earliest translators of Tibetan Buddhist texts into the English language, and a pioneer who introduced Tibetan Buddhism to the west. During his lifetime, he had served as the interpreter to kings, lamas, politicians, and explorers such as His Holiness the 13th Dalai Lama Thubten Gyatso (1876 – 1933), Alexandra David-Neel (1868 – 1969), the Maharaja of Sikkim Sir Thutob Namgyal (1860 – 1914), and Sir Charles Alfred Bell (1870-1945).

    His encounters with these well-known personalities played an important role in giving him credibility, and attracting those who would offer their assistance to edit and publish his translations, such as Dr. Walter Yeeling Evans-Wentz (1878 – 1965) and Sir John Woodroffe (1865 – 1936).

    According to Buddhist history, the first recorded use of incense occurred during Buddha Shakyamuni’s time, when a woman named Magadha Sangmo offered incense and prayers to request the Buddha to come forth and visit her village. Magadha Sangmo was the daughter of the Buddha main patron, Suddatta. She mirrored her father’s immense faith in Buddha Shakyamuni and was his ardent devotee.

    Thank you, Rinpoche and blog team on sharing this amazing story of Jadav Payeng with us. It is such an inspiration to see how one man’s effort can make a change and leave a remarkable impact on the environment.

    Jadav Payeng is just an ordinary man that lives on Majuli island. When he saw the island is in danger, he jumps into action and starts doing what he can do, which is planting a sapling a day in the barren wasteland of Majuli island.

    In the span of 40 years, a dense forest emerged from his effort and it is now even bigger than central park in New York. Many animals such as elephants, rhinos and even tigers have returned to live in that place. What he said was inspiring.

    “I see bad things happening on my island, and I do what I can to help.” – Jadav Payeng

    900 million trees are cut down annually throughout the world. Over 29 million trees are chopped off each day and 20 million acres of forests are sacrificed of which 6 million of those acres are turned into wood pulp to make paper. Given the extend of repercussions faced by China due to disrespect for its environment, a change of mindset should take precedence over just merely planting more trees to solve the grave matter. Perhaps this message may help them open their hearts to see that ‘Mother Nature’ is a *powerful force* not to be belittled or trifled with.

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.
~Tsem Rinpoche

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.

    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer
