Kalachakra Stupa for World
Peace, the first in Australia and
only the seventh in the world, is
to be built at the Crystal Castle
in Byron Bay. “This stupa is very important
for Byron Bay, the whole of Australia and
for world peace,” said Gen Lama Thupten
Phuntsok, a Gyuto Monk elder.
A stupa is a sacred monument built
by the Tibetan Buddhists to represent the
process of enlightenment. Symbolic of
community strength and interdependence,
Tibetans believe contributing to the
building of a stupa is one of the most
auspicious things one can do in this
lifetime and, once built, that great benefit
can be gained from walking clockwise
around it. The mere sight of a stupa is said
to put one in touch with one’s own innate
goodness, inspiring compassion, kindness
and thus, ultimately, good karma.
Kalachakra means ‘Wheel of Time’
and a Kalachakra stupa with its unusual
spherical body symbolises the energy
cycle and the essential structure of the
The project officially began on Friday
December 10 when the Gyuto Monks
of Tibet and local indigenous people
blessed the site, removed obstacles and
sought permission from the local spirits to
proceed with the construction of this
highly significant monument.
The dream of building a stupa began
in 2003 when Crystal Castle owners,
Naren and Sono King, were inspired by
Buddhist sacred sites in Borobudur, Java.
“Last February we travelled to Dharamsala
in India for a private audience with His
Holiness the Dalai Lama. Whilst there,
we were requested by a high lama
Woser Rinpoche, using a Tibetan form of
divination called the ‘mo’, to build the
rare Kalachakra stupa. This is specifically
for restoring balance to the Earth in
times of war, conflict and environmental
destruction. During our audience with the
Dalai Lama, we were privileged to receive
His Holiness’ blessings for the project,” say
This project has also been blessed by
other revered Buddhist spiritual leaders,
the Karmapa, Gaden Tripa and His
Holiness Sakya Trizin.
The stupa is expected to take a year
or more to complete and will be created
under the guidance of the Gyuto Monks
of Tibet. The eight metre structure will be
filled with many sacred objects, scriptures
and relics, including a complete collection
of the Buddha’s teachings and 108
volumes of sacred scrolls. Forty brass
prayer wheels, known as “Mani” wheels,
are currently being handmade for the
stupa by a family in Nepal’s Kathmandu
Valley. Each prayer wheel will hold over
130,000 Om Mani Padme Hum mantras.
Involvement of the community is an
essential part of creating a stupa. All of the
local community as well as visitors to this
region are welcome to be a part of this

“How to Meditate
a Zen Monk...
If you’d like to meditate as deeply (actually
more deeply) than a Zen monk, literally at
the touch of a button, this may be one of the
most important messages you will ever read.
Here is why...
Based in part on Nobel Prize-winning
research on how “complex systems” (human
beings, for instance) evolve to higher levels
of functioning, a mental improvement
program has been created utilising a powerful
audio technology called Holosync®.
A precise combination of audio signals gives
the brain a very specific stimulus that creates
states of deep meditation — and causes the
creation of new mind-enhancing neural
connections between left and right brain
Here’s what other Australians are
saying about Holosync® ...

level. I sit for 11⁄2 hours in peak hour traffic
and arrive at work cheerful and unfazed.”
- Janet Prentice, Sydney, NSW
“I sleep beautifully, concentrate with ease,
people have commented on how confident
and well I look.” - Gregory O’Keeffe, Qld
