Beautiful Tibetan Stupa

About The Ritual Item :

The stupa is a handmade Buddhist shrine finely detailed, which is entirely gold-plated. The stupa has beautiful lotus designs on the bottom which symbolize purity of the body, speech, and mind. The top has perfectly designed thirteen umbrella wheels and other carvings similarly.

Introduction To Stupa :

Before Buddhism, great teachers were buried in mounds. Some were cremated but sometimes buried in a seated, meditative position. The mound of earth covered them up. Thus, the domed shape of the stupa came to represent a person seated in meditation much as the Buddha was when he achieved Enlightenment and knowledge of the Four Noble Truths. The base of the stupa represents his crossed legs as he sat in a meditative pose. The middle portion is the Buddha’s body and the top of the mound, where a pole rises from the apex surrounded by a small fence, represents his head. Before images of the human Buddha were created, reliefs often depicted practitioners demonstrating devotion to a stupa.
