Stupas in New Mexico

Post by Johnny Dangerous » Wed Oct 01, 2014 11:58 pm

Going to visit my family in my hometown of Albuquerque, NM fairly soon, hope to make a trip to some Stupas. I know there are a number scattered throughout New Mexico. There used to be one at Petroglyph park..which was demolished a number of years back to build a highway through (yay for NM lol, what an awful thing to do), and there any burquenos around here who know where this stupa now resides, or have any other suggestions for visits?

Yes. There's only one. It's in the south end of town, so you'll hit that part of town first, coming from Albuquerque.

When I visited that stupa about five years ago it was well-cared for, but there seem to have been some major changes since then:

There are a number of other stupas in the Rio Grande Valley, from ABQ north to Crestone, CO, most of which appear in this article: https://ktdblog.wordpress.com/tag/questa-stupa/

Will you be making it to Taos?
The stupa of the great weathermaker Yeshe Dorje is there.

Turns out there's one of those just outside Santa Fe, too. So Santa Fe has 2 stupas.

Here's an article in Tricycle about Rio Grande stupas:

I was mistaken, Yeshe dorje's stupa is in sante fe. It is a different stupa in Taos

JD,

Perhaps Traga Rinpoche's Drikungpa center in ABQ has some stupas, or would know where some could be found?

"The Sutras, Tantras, and Philosophical Scriptures are great in number. However life is short, and intelligence is limited, so it's hard to cover them completely. You may know a lot, but if you don't put it into practice, it's like dying of thirst on the shore of a great lake. Likewise, a common corpse is found in the bed of a great scholar." ~ Karma Chagme

Ahh! I was just in Santa Fe and I missed visiting the Stupa. I will have to go see it on my way back. Thanks for bringing this to my attention.

In particular, the website Karma Jinpa mentions has a photo album of a tour of Kagyu stupas in the area: http://www.rigdzindharma.org/stupa-rest ... mping.html" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
