Thank you for that description of a stupa. It is one of the best that I've heard. But then I hadn't bothered to look. From your inspiration I found this at shambalamountain.org. The Shambala centers were founded by Chogyam Trungpa.

Here is a picture of their finished stupa, the Great Stupa of Dharmakaya, which is not far from where I live. Guess I oughta go see it in person.

Thank you. By the way, Chogyam Trungpa has authored many wonderful books. I'm currently reading "Cutting through Spiritual Materialism". It's a great read. I would also highly recommend his book "The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying".
