There are eight different kinds of stupas in Tibetan Buddhism, each referring to major events in the life of Shakyamuni Buddha.
Whilst all eight (8) are to built at Karma Yiwong Samten Ling the current focus is the
Stupa of Reconciliation.
This stupa commemorates the Buddha's resolution of a dispute among the sangha.
The Reconciliation Stupa met a further significant milestone in March 2020 when the Vase (Tib. Bumpa) section of the Stupa was craned into position. In April the jut outs at the base of the octagonal steps were completed.

All that has been achieved and all that is yet to come is only possible because of the generosity of sponsors. We rejoice in your merit. 🙏😀😇 THANK YOU ALL!
Current activities are primarily on sourcing a manufacturer of the 6 metre tall spire.
H.E. Ven. Dekhung Gyaltsey Tulku Rinpoche has advised the sequence for the seven (7) other stupas to surround the larger Stupa of Reconciliation and has nominated the first of these to be constructed and its location.
We invite you to contribute to the construction of these Stupas.
The Buddha taught extensively about the benefits of building stupas, as well as the benefits to those who support and make contact with stupas.
In the Sutra of the White Lotus of the Sacred Dharma, it says:
Walls are made from mud and bricks
And a stupa of the Victorious One is made likewise…
Whomever simply builds one on the account of the Victorious One
All of them will attain enlightenment.
