The Stupa of Enlightenment was errected at the Land of Enlightened Wisdom in Pomona, California in November 2013.  This page is now paused now and no longer active.  Thank you for you contribution.

The Stupa of Enlightenment commemorates the defeat of Mara's forces by Buddha Shakyamuni as he meditated under the Bodhi Tree in Bodhgaya, India. The Stupa of Enlightenment is one of eight types of stupas built in India after the passing of Buddha to commemorate the major events of his life. The Stupa invokes the blessings from Buddhas and Bodhisattva which can subdue the instability of society in the San Gabriel Valley due to conflicts of political gridlock, serious crimes, downfall of our society due to recession, illness and others.

Together with supporters, friends, and students, the process of raising the funds began in February of 2013 to purchase of the stupa to be built in Indonesia from lava stone and shipped to the United States. Your contribution to this project can help benefit many sentient beings that come in contact with the stupa or are blessed by its effects.

Land of Enlightened Wisdom is a Buddhist Dharma center dedicated to the study and practice of Buddhism. The center was established in May 2010. Buddhist philosophy classes are offered each week without charge and exists through contributions from students, friends and supporters.

Your contributions are most powerful when made with the intention to benefit all sentient beings.

A Stupa is a religious monument in which the relics of a holy person such as Buddha Shayamuni are enshrined. A stupa can be a reminder to future generations of the great teachers of Buddhism and inspire them on the path to liberation.

Merely viewing the stupa can bring the sense of well being, harmony and peace to one's mind. Erecting a stupa can help with the purification of the environment and blessings to the local community.

Circumambulation: Practitioners walk clockwise around the stupa reciting mantras and prayers. This practice is beneficial to the conscious and subconscious minds. Contemplation: Meditation on verses of text studied in class near the stupa can be very beneficial.
