DONATION GOAL ACHIEVED – Life-Force Tree (Sokshing)
Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU! We’ve met our donation goal thanks to all of our wonderful donors!!
HELP TO CREATE THE “LIFE-FORCE TREE” OF THE GREAT STUPA.
Before we can complete the top of The Great Stupa we need to prepare the Life-Force Tree (Sokshing) which hangs inside the top of The Great Stupa. The Sokshing has been carved from one straight tree that a farmer wanted cleared from his land. We cut the tree according to all the correct rituals; which included marking the east side of the tree when it was growing. This tree has now been shaped into a massive 13 metre long Sokshing.
Lama Zopa Rinpoche has given detailed instruction on the mantras to be painted in real gold on the Sokshing. Work on the Sokshing will be done by leading Tibetan artist, Lobsang Konchok inside The Great Stupa.
The cost to complete the Sokshing is $17,508. This will cover all labour, accommodation, meals and materials that Lobsang will need.
