In Bali, we are all aware of the beautiful and unique tradition of the amalgamation of the two religion of shiva and buddha. There are gurus who lead each of the tradition but in conjoint. There are also few of them who practice vajrayana and this particular group of our sangha has been following Simdha Rinpoche for more than 5 years now. Two such close disciple of Simdha Getul Rinpoche is building the enlightenment stupa in Bangli, Bali. This enlightenment stupa is being build under the instruction Simdha Getul Rinpoche himself and therefore, Simdha Rinpoche had gone there with his entourage of monks to blessed the ground where the stupa will be erected and also the blessing of the mantras which will be used in the consecration of the stupa. The ritual of the blessing of the ground is a wrathful ritual where Rinpoche would required to oppress all the obstacles in the ground. Soon after the ritual, all our sangha members present there witness all the amazing signs like heavy rainfall and thunderstorm for whole night. We all hope that there won't be any obstacle in the construction of this enlightenment stupa in Bali and henceforth, could witness a beautiful stupa which could become a ground for the practice of dharma where everyone could come to pay respect, circumambulate, meditate and practice. The enlightenment stupa has great benefit to everyone in it's surroundings; humans, animals and all beings. It could become the foundation for the liberation upon sight, touch and sound. We believe that the wind that has touch the stupa if come in even smallest of contact to any beings in it's surrounding will also receive the blessing of it. The benefit of building a stupa is immense and we hope that togethe we all can build many more stupas all around the world under the instruction of Simdha Rinpoche.

Borobudur is a the one of the largest buddhist stupa built in 8th and 9th centuries in the form of the vajrayana mandala. Although the stupa was restored but the chatra of the stupa is missing from the top. Simdha Rinpoche has gone to borobudur to the bless the ground on which the replica of the chatra of the borobudur stupa which is around 1000 tonnes will be built and construct. Simdha Rinpoche led the practice of Tara on that ground and later did the practice of the cycle of Kunchok Chidu and also the fire puja on the ground where the chatra would be build according the to cycle of the Kunchok Chidu - the supreme practice of Guru Rinpoche.
We are truly grateful for the continous effort of Simdha Rinpoche in planting the seed of dharma especially in Indonesia and other parts of the world. May Rinpoche's dharma activity flourish throughout the world.
