As a sacred object, the Stupa will mark the land as a spiritual place, contributing to peace on Earth, creating positivity, fighting against diseases, spreading the Dharma, fulfilling Lama Zopa Rinpoche’s vision and creating collective merit.
The total estimated costs of the Stupa are 7000 € including the creation of its content, the organized visits of teachers & stupa builders and the consecration ceremonies.
Help us raise 1000 Euros more as we raised 6000 Euros already with the help of 90 donors (we would like to involve a total of 108 people). Many many thanks for supporting our vision!
Since December 2017 the “Center of White Mahakala – FPMT Study group” (CBWM) has been providing an oasis in the city of Cluj-Napoca, offering classes of meditation, mindfulness, buddhist philosophy, as well as visits by many great teachers from the world.
Our group is promoting and supporting ethical, philosophical and psychological Buddhist principles; providing opportunities for spiritual education based on authentic Buddhist teachings; implementing and supporting activities regarding community, social and environmental development.

Besides our City Center in Cluj Napoca we would like to develop a Retreat Center in Tranisu, Apuseni Mountains (80 km away from Cluj). A retreat center in a rural area offers conditions for deepening spiritual practices beyond the limitations imposed by the pace and lifestyle of urban life and can provide an alternative to social pressures, materialism and individualism.
What we would like to create is a safe place/environment from which a culture of universal ethics, compassion and wisdom in the individual and the society can flourish and grow.
The first phase of developing the Retreat Center is building a Kadampa Stupa on the land, as our spiritual director adviced us. In the next to phases we will build 2 retreat cabins with a gompa for 45 people and rooms for accommodating 30 people.
The stupa will be 2,30 m high and placed on the highest spot of the land “in order to purify the whole area due to the power of its ingredients and its blessings”. As a sacred object, the Stupa will mark the land as a spiritual place, contributing to peace on Earth, creating positivity, fighting against diseases, spreading the Dharma, fulfilling Rinpoche’s vision and creating collective merit.

Building or sponsoring a stupa is a very powerful way to accumulate merit and purify negative karma. Holy objects bless the land and plant the seed for enlightenment. Every time beings see holy objects, their minds are purified. Just by seeing a statue of Buddha, you collect numberless merits. In addition, if you make offerings, you collect much, much more merit.
“The main purpose of building stupas is to make the lives of all beings, young and old, meaningful. … Just by coming to a stupa place beings will receive an education in order to develop a good heart, compassion and loving kindness, tolerance, patience – all these most precious human qualities of the mind. And inspiration! … This is about peace – for the individual beings who come to see it, for the whole country, and for the entire world – for all sentient beings. I see the creation of stupas as being of incalculable benefit for countless sentient beings, especially for their mind streams. If one transforms or develops the mind, then all problems and suffering are transformed or ceased, because the mind is the creator of all one’s happiness and suffering. “ Lama Zopa Rinpoche
