We humbly dedicate our efforts to manifest this stupa in honor of His Holiness the 17th Karmapa and the entire Kagyu Lineage.  We visualize a stupa as a generator of Bodhicitta, the desire to gain enlightenment for the benefit of all sentient beings.  Each person who comes with his or her prayers and devotion will add power to the generator which in turn will radiate into the world.  May all beings be happy.

The teachings will come to the land of the red faced,

The ones to be tamed by Chenresik.

The Bodhisattva Lion’s Roar (Simhanada)

Will appear as the Karmapa.

He will tame beings through his mastery of samadhi,

Bringing into bliss those who see, hear, touch or remember him.

-Samadhiraja Sutra

This is the land that has been donated by Rebecca Silva and Thomas Stansberry upon which we will build the Enlightenment Stupa.
