After two and a half years of planning, and months of artwork by the monks, the Kalachakra Stupa’s spire was installed at the Crystal Castle on Friday 30 March.
The World Peace Stupa is the first of its kind in the southern hemisphere and is meant to be a good omen in times of war, conflict and natural disasters.
Gyuto monks filled each section with mantras (prayers) and auspicious Tibetan relics; these were then sealed.
And Saturday night saw a harmonic chanting performance by the monks, celebrating the milestone and to raise funds for its completion. For more visit www.crystalcastle.com.au
