>Buddha on board

With the Buddha rupa in place work now begins on the enclosing dome and spire.

Patient and undemanding. On the level.
 
A diamond teaching.



Going - going - going
 
Last chance of an open sky.
Inside - outside, freedom is there.



The last stone is ready - the end is - at the top. A culmination of aspiration.
 
Touch the earth.
Touch the earth.


A stupa is a memorial - a symbol of Buddha, as the enlightenment principle, pointing indirectly to both the teacher and his teachings. A specifically Buddhist monument used for contemplation and and as the focus of religious ritual. A symbol to inspire aspiration and efforts in the religious life the pursuit of enlightenment.
