Commencement of Construction for 

The Mahasiddha Sanctuary for Universal Peace

In the Birthplace of Lord Buddha

“We envision the Mahasiddha Sanctuary for Universal Peace as the ideal spiritual destination
and pilgrimage site for people of every race, color, and creed. This magnificent structure, an architectural jewel, will grace the site of Lord Buddha’s birth and honor the Buddha and Queen Mother Maya Devi. It is our sincere aspiration that the blessings of Lumbini continue to extend

far beyond the borders of Nepal so that all of humanity may benefit from the Buddha’s

legacy of peace, generosity, compassion, and good heart.”  

 -- His Eminence Shyalpa Tenzin Rinpoche
