A letter from the Venerable Pema Rangrig Dorje, Rinpoche:
The Stupa of the Awakening through Sutra-and-Mantra
The Lord, the Bhagavat, is the Master of the teachings of Sutra and Mantra:
And for the purpose of these Sutra and Mantra teachings to last forever
There is this great Stupa of the Sugata: a heart-locus of Sutra and Mantra,
In this Stupa of the Awakening through Sutra-and-Mantra I take refuge
And so with the offering of this spoken verse…. in the expansive upper reach of Jambudvipa’s globe in the extensive North American country of Canada and its eminent region of Toronto: for the first time there is a tangible manifestation of the highest qualities of the Buddha’s Mind which I have adorned with the holy name:
“The Stupa of the Awakening through Sutra-and-Mantra”.
This Stupa -of the Awakening that conquers delusion- is of a good size: nine feet in height with a width of seven and is sponsored by Sasha, Yulia and their family upon which they have already started construction with assistance from the Canadian Throma Sangha for ritual requirements and additional needs.
You who have positive faith and merit can also make a positive connection through your assistance, which will be applied solely and completely to this project. These kinds of connections will have the same eventual result of the goal of enlightenment. My vision is here to build this extraordinary and holy support so that the ensuing merit and roots of happiness give rise to the precious awakening of all our mothers: sentient beings as numberless as the sky is vast; that all of the countries of our world -especially Canada- never experience calamities arising from the four elements, illness, famine and discord; that there be.
