NZ_Vimutti: New Stupa
This past summer (Southern Hemisphere), the monks and laypeople at Vimutti built a stupa on the open space in front of the sala. The base was constructed by hand with rocks and concrete, and the stupa itself was carved in Indonesia out of the same rock as Borobudur. The final blocks were then left uncompleted until we were ready to enshrine Buddha Relics at the beginning of the rains retreat, Asalha Puja. A number of monks and nuns from the Auckland area joined us for the special occasion.
