Grand Stupa of Reconciliation
Lamas, Peru

Great Stupa of Reconciliation – Lamas, Peru

In the region of San Martin, in the Peruvian jungle, near the city of Lamas and the town of Rumizapa, is the Great Stupa of Reconciliation Rime Jangchub Chöten.

Its construction began in 2014 thanks to the effort and collaboration of Buddhist practitioners of various traditions and supporters. It is 15 meters high and contains one hundred thousand Tzatzas, with carefully prepared mantras during days of meditation and contemplation.

The intention of this project is to contribute to the happiness and peace of the region by sharing skillful means, mental training techniques and practical and contemplative knowledge with deep respect for local traditions.
