Consecrating a stupa for Rigdzin Shikpo

Learn more about the stupa for Rigdzin Shikpo Rinpoche and how you can help

Dear students, colleagues and friends of Rigdzin Shikpo Rinpoche,

Preparations have started for the enshrining of Rinpoche’s relics in a stupa at Tyn y Gors, as he wished. The dates for its consecration are now finalised as Weds 11th – Sat 14th September.

The creation of the stupa is an opportunity to show our love and respect for Rigdzin Shikpo Rinpoche. Our participation and generosity empowers our connection with him for all our lives and his Awakened activity for all beings.

The relics will be placed inside a 3ft copper stupa made by traditional craftsmen in Nepal. Also inside the stupa will be the key Maha-Ati text 'Choying Dzod' (Treasury of the Dharmadhatu) by Longchen Rabjam, so important to Rinpoche.

The stupa will reside inside a pagoda, built for the purpose, on the island on the lake at Tyn y Gors. It will be empowered by the gathering of Rinpoche's students for the consecration on 11-14 September at Tyn y Gors, where we host holders of the Kagyu & Nyingma lineages from around the world to honour him.

You now have an opportunity to join in with this celebration of our connection to Rinpoche.
