Stupa (Tib.: Chorten)
The Enlightened Body, Speech and Mind
A Stupa is a spiritual monument that usually contains Buddhist relics.
The stupa represents the Buddha’s body, speech and mind. Every part of the construction of a Stupa shows the path to full enlightenment.
Here depicted are three out of the eight different types of Stupas in Tibetan Buddhism that each refer to a major event in Buddha’s life. All of them are shown below.
