  • Because we and all beings still live in samsara and have anger, attachment, ignorance and all the mental garbage: having all these wrong views is why we need Dharma centers, which are a place to learn, to practice, to purify and collect merits, to inspire each other, to develop wisdom and compassion and to achieve liberation and enlightenment. Because we are in samsara and because we have problems that is why we need Dharma centers, that is why Dharma centers exist. Don't you think it is better to think this way rather than to think: because we have Dharma centers we have problems?

    - Lama Zopa Rinpoche

The Great Stupa of Universal Compassion

The Great Stupa of Universal Compassion is under construction on the same site as Atisha Centre.

It will be the same size and design as the Great Stupa of Gyantse in Tibet which is 50 metres (164 feet) wide along each side at its base and nearly 50 metres high. This will make it the largest stupa in the Western World. A Stupa is the most sacred monument in the Buddhist world. It is a symbolic representation of the fully Enlightened mind and the path to Enlightenment. As the sacred texts are the verbal expression of the Dharma, so the Stupa is its architectural expression.
