Six cement truck loads of concrete were poured on May 28, 2014, to bring the foundation of the stupa up to ground level.

May 28, 2014: Pouring the foundation.

Since then, more framing has been built to get ready to pour the next level. The stages of the construction will need to be paced to allow for the filling of the interior spaces. The spaces within the main tower will be filled with the sutras – the scriptures of the Buddha’s own words. We are ordering 10 sets of the Kangyur in the form of Tibetan pechas (books) to put in there. Extra space will be filled with ‘incense’ in the form of cedar shavings.
