Stupas at KSC’s Lama Residence

December 2012, Phakyab Rinpoche consecrated the four stupas built at the KSC Lama Residence. Rinpoche was aided by Lama Karma Chötso, Lama Karma (MODC, TN) and Lama Lekshe Dorje (KTC, NY). Rinpoche took over the blessing of the stupas and the 25,000 sa tsa placed inside at the last minute, spending over a week in South Florida working long hours chanting and also bestowing empowerments to the Sangha.  You are invited to check out the CONSECRATION page; donate to the project on the DONATE page; or VOLUNTEER your services in this very special garden.
