Rinpoche with the Abbot of Wat Phra Dharmakaya

The Mahasiddha Sanctuary can be understood in various ways. In the absolute sense, it is the unconditional, luminous essence that dwells within all beings. On the relative level, it is a beautiful image that evokes serenity,

radiance, and inner peace.

His Eminence expressed his wish that everyone has an opportunity to participate in this sacred undertaking with a kind and compassionate heart, free of personal agenda. As Rinpoche explained, “Simply rejoicing in this meritorious project, simply having one good wish for it’s successful completion will generate good karma.” Rinpoche concluded by inviting the monks to visit Lumbini and celebrate together when the temple is completed. There was mutual warmth and understanding, and gifts were exchanged in expressions of goodwill and appreciation.

In March, 2014, His Eminence Shyalpa Tenzin Rinpoche made a visit to Bangkok to share the Mahasiddha Sanctuary Project. Rinpoche was warmly received by the head monks at two Theravadin temples, Wat Bowon, within the capital city, and Wat Phra Dhammakaya, north of Bangkok. Here, Rinpoche spoke about his pure vision for the Mahasiddha Sanctuary in Lumbini, transcending limited boundaries and honoring all Buddhist traditions and schools. The sanctuary will serve as an inspiration for anyone who cherishes peace, tolerance, and understanding between nations, communities, and individuals around the world.
