Over the next two weeks ‘a Tibetan-style spiritual time capsule’ will be built at Crystal Castle, which its creators say will be a powerful, collective symbol of peace and harmony.
A stupa is a spiritual monument in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition and the rare eight-metre Kalachakra Stupa for World Peace currently emerging from the red earth in the Crystal Castle grounds is specifically designed for restoring balance to the Earth in times of conflict and environmental destruction.
Unique in the Southern Hemisphere and only the seventh in the world, this amazing spherical structure has been engineered to last 1000 years. The contents of its treasury, items of value to the giver and symbolic of community wellbeing, will travel into the future – a potent prayer for peace and prosperity.
Two big public events will be held on the weekend of December 3 and 4.
At 11am Saturday will be a tantric ritual, blessing all the items to be placed in the stupa. This event is a unique and sacred ceremony – and everyone is invited to be present.
People attending the ceremony are requested to arrive early and bring a personally precious object to be included in the stupa.
At 11am Sunday the base throne of the stupa will be filled with the blessed objects.
People are invited to attend this first tangible layer of the stupa creation.
Crystal Castle is offering free entry for everyone until 11am on both days. It is recommended you bring a cushion and a hat.
There will also be a program of activities by the Gyuto Monks between Wednesday November 30 and Friday December 2.
Crystal Castle is at 81 Monet Drive, Mullumbimby, NSW, 2482
