Stupa Locator

Would you like to know where the stupa is located in your area? We are aware that sometimes it is not easy to find the stupa and often it happens to us that we have the stupa "around the corner" and we did not even know about it. That is why we bring you this unique Stupa Locator - Stupa Finder.

 

You can find the stupas directly on the map, where after clicking on the stupa icon you can see which stupa it is, where to find it, the website and also the route planning. The second option is just below the map - a list of stupas by country. When you click on a specific stupa in the list, you can view a more detailed description of the stupa, including a photo and other details.

 

If you know of any other stupa in Europe that is not on our map, we will be very happy if you let us know about it.

 

We wish you a pleasant search and maybe we will meet at some stupa.

The Peace Stupa in Grafenwörth is the largest stupa in Europe when height and inner space are taken together. The intention of Bop Jon Sunim Tenzin Tharchin, the spiritual leader of the Stupa project, in building this stupa was to follow the recommendation of Buddha Shakyamuni, as given in the Lotus Sutra, to build stupas for the benefit of all beings, especially in times of strife and disharmony. The Peace Stupa in Grafenwörth is the second stupa in Europe built under Sunim’s guidance; the other is the Peace Stupa in Zalaszántó, Hungary, which was dedicated by H.H. the XIV Dalai Lama in 1993. H.H. the XIV Dalai Lama also approved Sunim’s plans for the Peace Stupa in Grafenwörth. The architecture of the stupa is reminiscent of Indo-Greek style stupas of the 2nd century BCE, but with the dome sitting on a tiered, rather than single rounded base. The spacious interior with its minimalist simplicity was constructed with ecological, local materials.

In 2010, on the initiative of the Austro-Bhutanese Society for Friendship, Cooperation and Culture, the Bhutanese Stupa (Chörten), also known as the Happy Tower, was built by students from the College of Industrial Design in Mödling. The park was then inaugurated on April 6, 2012 in the presence of the ambassadors of China, India and Bhutan. The Mani wall was also added this year. The stupa brings happiness, freedom, health and peace to all sentient beings in the vicinity.

The Diamond Way Buddhist Center in Graz dates back to 1972, when Lama Ole Nydahl - at the request of the 16th Karmapa - began his activities as a lama of the Diamond Way by passing on his first Buddhist teachings in Graz. To bless this vast and growing Diamond Way Buddhist activity, Lopön Tsechchu Rinpoche began building the Stupa of Wisdom in 1998 in a newly renovated center, where about 15 people live all the time. In this way, the inhabitants of the center in Graz wanted to keep in mind the first teachings given by Lama Ole Nydahl at that place.
