The Grand Maitreya Project Stupa form is based on a stupa brought to Tibet by Lama Atisha. Lama Atisha was the great teacher of the second propagation of the Buddhist doctrine in Tibet. Whenever Lama Atisha traveled in Tibet, he carried with him a wooden stupa of this style for his spiritual support.
This specific style of Stupa is called a Kadampa stupa and its roots trace back to ancient India. Although Kadampa stupas differ from other stupas in their form, they inherit the same underlying elements as other stupas. The most recognizable feature of the Kadampa stupa is its overall bell-like shape.
Stupas represent the enlightened mind and are found in all Buddhist countries and communities. According to many Tibetan masters, stupas are incredible antidotes for war, famine, and disease and are also extremely powerful for health and healing. Anybody who sees, touches, thinks or hears about the stupa has the seeds of enlightenment planted and purifies an incredible amount of negative karma.
His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama and several Rinpoche’s have provided relics of the Buddha and other holy items to be placed inside of the completed stupa and statue. These will create and incredible amount purification, merit, and blessings for many beings. The relics and mantras create purification just by seeing, touching or making offerings to the stupa.
