Stupas are monuments for peace in the world. They are constructions which express the pure nature of the mind in a perfect form.
Stupas have been built in Asia for centuries and in Europe since 1982. Their symbolism is multifaceted: they stand for the various Buddha wisdoms, for instance, but also for the society of practitioners, the Sangha. Generally, it is said that the spiritual influence of a stupa is so great that those who revere them, help with their construction or those who live in the vicinity experience its positive effect as a source of peace, happiness and prosperity.
