The Great Stupa of Universal Compassion is under construction on the
same site as Atisha Centre. It will be the same size and design as the
Great Stupa of Gyantse in Tibet which is 50 metres (164 feet) wide along
each side at its base and nearly 50 metres high. This will make it the
largest stupa in the Western World.
A stupa is the most sacred monument in the Buddhist world. It is a
symbolic representation of the fully enlightened mind and the path to enlightenment. As the sacred texts are the verbal expression of the dharma, so the stupa is its architectural expression.
