KBL is is a for many Reasons a special Place. One reason and the most obvious one besides the incredible Landscape are the nine Stupas.
"The Kalachakra Stupa (wheel of time) is the only type of Stupa that belongs to the Tantric teachings, which were given by Buddha shortly before his death. Stupas of this type are symbols of universal peace and unity among people. Only a few Kalachakra Stupas exist around the world. They are said to possess great protective power.
The placement of this Kalachakra Stupa at the southern tip of Europe will help us to protect our freedom. The Stupa was initially planned and developed by Lopön Tsechu Rinpoche, a realised Buddhist master. After eight years of preparation, the
Stupa was finally built under the spiritual guidance of Lama Chogdrub Dorje and inaugurated in August 2010 by Lama Chogdrub Dorje and Lama Ole Nydahl.
This Stupa is dedicated to the head of the Karma Kagyu lineage, Thaye Dorje, His Holiness the 17th- Gyalwa Karmapa. " (taken from the Original Visitor Plate in KBL)
"Stupas (Tibetan: chörten) are symbols of the true nature of mind. They point to the timeless, indestructible characteristics of enlightenment: fearlessness, joy and active compassion. Buddha himself gave the teachings on how to build Stupas. This knowledge belongs to the Sutra transmission. The Tibetan Buddhist tradition developed eight types of Stupa, which represent important events in the life of Buddha."
