NEW STUPA KUNGALING, IZHEVSK, RUSSIA
Dear Vajra Family! Kungaling (Russia, Izhevsk) would like to announce the accomplishment of construction and landscaping around the Longsal Stupa. This project started in 2009. The Stupa is located in the middle of the city near the administrative institutions of Udmurt Republic facing a municipal maternity hospital not far from the city center park.
The Stupa stands in a square near the Gonpa of Kungaling. The Stupa is about 8 meters high. From above it is crowned with the golden Longsal symbol. The owner of the Longsal Stupa is Chögyal Namkhai Norbu. He personally coordinated all the construction stages. Kungaling is deeply grateful to Rinpoche for a miraculous manifestation of the Longsal Stupa in the center of Izhevsk. It became possible due to His wisdom, patience and compassion. Kungaling is deeply grateful to Khyentse Yeshe. The Stupa in Izhevsk has a direct connection with Him. Without His participation this project would be never accomplished. Kungaling is deeply grateful to the architect and the project coordinator Giovanni Boni. He is certainly the best! Kungaling is deeply grateful to the ritual master and the project artist Migmar Tsering. He is unsurpassed in his mastery!
Kungaling is deeply grateful to ALL OF YOU, every member of the Dzogchen Community for the participation at this project. Each member of the Community has a connection to his Gar. The Gars, Lings and members of the world Community made rich offerings to the Longsal Stupa. The energy of the whole Community is united in this Stupa. There are always many birds near the Stupa. Many people come to walk around the Stupa. They also offer flowers and money. Children offer sweets. Newlyweds come to the Stupa. Mothers with babies come to the Stupa. Many older people come to the Stupa. TV reports about the Stupa are made. People tell that their wishes made near the Stupa are fulfilled. Kungaling hopes that the Longsal Stupa will be blessed by Rinpoche very soon. With love, devotion and respect, Kungaling -- Reprinted from the Mirror Facebook.
