Garden of Merit Stupa Open Awareness Buddhist Center Miamibuddhism.com Feature Southernmost Tibetan stupas in the U.S. They were built to counter negativity and balance the elements, thereby benefiting the physical environment and all the beings sharing that environment. A basic design was shown by Buddha Shakyamuni when his disciples asked him how a reliquary should be constructed and what it should symbolize. The Kagyu lineage of Tibetan Buddhism has kept the basic design. These four stupas in Miami, Florida were built to face the four cardinal directions and symbolize various events in the life of the Buddha. Come experience the peace of our garden.

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.
