Prayer to Be Reborn in Dewachen

Listen now to this melody to a traditional prayer is offered as a gift to you. It is part of a music project Jetsunma Ahkon Lhamo is working on, a CD of songs and prayers to be played for the dying, both human and animal. It is a lullaby of compassion for those passing from this life.

Sacred Buddhist Stupas of Kunzang Palyul Choling

Sacred Stupas ...

And How They Can Change Your Life

“Here in America there are so few places to expect the miraculous.”
Jetsunma Ahkon Lhamo,
Spiritual Director of Kunzang Palyul Choling

Imagine a place where you can go to pray that magnifies that prayer a hundred fold. A place where a living presence of compassion and enlightened mind exists with the sole purpose of being a beacon that radiates blessings to all who come within 100 miles of its location. And if you can imagine a place like this, imagine how it could change your life and the lives of others. That's exactly what a stupa is. When you come to a stupa to make prayers with the pure intention of bringing benefit to others, it can change your life, your heart, your mind profoundly.

At a stupa it is possible to touch the sacred and be transformed.

Over the last fifteen years members of KPC have constructed over twenty five Stupas of varying sizes at its 72 -acre Temple complex in rural Maryland near the nation's capital.

The first Stupa built was a 36-foot Enlightenment Stupa (pictured at the right), consecrated (empowered) by His Holiness Penor Rinpoche and Jetsunma Ahkon Lhamo.

Kunzang Palyul Choling Stupas

Sedona Arizona

Surrounded by the stunning red rocks of Sedona, Arizona, Kunzang Palyul Choling (KPC) has created a place for peaceful meditation and spiritual renewal. Under the direction of Jetsunma Ahkon Lhamo, Spiritual Director of KPC, two consecrated Stupas have already been built on the land, the Tara Stupa and the Amitabha Stupa.  They sit majestically among the pinion and juniper pines against the beautiful pinnacles of Sedona rock.

About Stupas

Because every element of a Buddha’s physical body is pervaded with the pure energy of Enlightened Mind, the teacher’s remains after cremation are considered sacred.  One sign that a teacher is an Enlightened manifestation is that relics will be found in the ashes that resemble small, round pearls which can be white, red, or brown.  These are often the relics that are put inside stupas being built today.
