The bhumi puja (earth blessing) was held on Friday, April 25, 2014, and on the following Monday, April 28, 2014 construction began.
Two years later, on May 22, 2016, we filled the 9th and final chamber of the central tower. Many hands helped pass along the holy objects – sutras, mantras, tsa-tsas, etc. – from the truck, up the ladders, all the way to the top.
Our artist built the Namgyal stupa at the top of our stupa and began working to apply all of the decorative facades to the Mahabodhi.
In 2019 we built the first of the three planned mandala walls which will serve as a location for the thousands of stupas to be dedicated
We continue to cast stupas, work in the gardens and apply decorations.
