Sacred Buddhist Stupas of Kunzang Palyul Choling

Sedona Arizona Stupas
Where Peace is a Living Presence

The Amitabha Stupa and Peace Park in the stunning red rock country of Sedona, Arizona, is a place for meditation and spiritual renewal. Kunzang Palyul Choling (KPC), under the direction of its spiritual director Jetsunma Ahkon Lhamo, has built two stupas on 14 pristine acres—The Amitabha Stupa and the Tara Stupa.  The stupas sit majestically among the pinion and juniper pines, surrounded by a garland of crimson pinnacles.

Stupas have a profound spiritual legacy that goes back thousands of years. They are a form of sacred Buddhist architecture that both symbolizes and embodies enlightened mind.  Stupas are a living presence of awakened compassion and radiate constant blessings throughout the world. It is said that all who see a stupa, hear of it or reflect upon it are forever changed by its grace.

Directly Support the Amitabha Stupa when you purchase The Story of the Amitabha Stupa

The Story of the Amitabha Stupa is told in 36, full color pages, from Jetsunma Ahkon Lhamo's original inspiration for the stupa through its three day consecration.  You will see the phases of the stupa's construction and filling with birlliant photographs, stories and pith teachings about stupas from many great masters of Tibetan Buddhism.  This book is possibly the first of its kind in terms of documenting this ancient sacred architectural tradition for Western audiences. Your purchase of The Story of the Amitabha Stupa will help to secure this sacred land.

Stupas have been built for centuries in the East to protect beings from illness, poverty, plagues, famine and war; and to bring environmental stability and harmony to the world.  They are visited by people from near and far who are looking for healing for themselves and loved ones, solace from sorrows, good fortune, long life and help for the dying or deceased. Stupas are also a spiritual oasis, a place to refresh the spirit, gather strength and hope and connect with a deeper truth.   Just to see a stupa, to walk around it or to feel the wind blowing by it is a blessing.

Although in the West there are few such places of refuge, in Sedona we are fortunate to have two fully empowered and consecrated, around-the-clock generators of peace and love.  You are cordially invited to visit The Amitabha Stupa and Peace Park any day from sunrise to sunset.  It is located at the base of Thunder Mountain, adjacent to Chimney Rock.  From Highway 89A in Sedona, take Andante Drive north to Pueblo Drive.  Turn left.  Proceed 50 yards and park. Continue by foot on the short trail to the stupas.

Visitors to the Amitabha Stupa and Peace call it “an island of solitude” and “a light of peace and possibilities.” One recent traveler said, “There is so much to accomplish for our children and their children of this world. Coming here filled me with incredible hope, energy and peace. Thank you for the blessings.”

The two existing stupas on the property are:


Amitabha Stupa:

This striking 36-foot enlightenment stupa gets its name from Buddha Amitabha, the Buddha of Limitless Light, whose bronze image is nestled in the faceplate of the stupa.  Filled with hundreds of millions of prayers for peace, sacred relics and ritual offerings, the Amitabha Stupa is a vortex of enlightened presence and a beacon of blessings for all beings.

White Tara Stupa:

This six-foot White Tara stupa is graced by a relief of White Tara, the female Buddha who is the very embodiment of long life and compassion.  The stupa is dedicated to the long life of Venerable Gyatrul Rinpoche.

*An emanation is considered to be a physical being who has come to earth to benefit beings exhibiting the qualities of that particular god or goddess."
