  • Background

    In 2007, Ven. Lama Kelzang made a pilgrimage to the Milarepa Tower in Qinghai and made an aspiration to build a similar tower in Bhutan. Following a positive reaction from the Royal Bhutan Government, 12 acres of land was acquired at Phuntsokling, on a hillside a few miles from the Indian border. The monastery and Milarepa Tower (Sekagutok) will be a holy site to attract pilgrims from Darjeeling, Kalimpong and Sikkim, as well as Bhutan, where the official religion is Kagyupa Buddhism.


    背景

    緣起自尊貴的嘉生上師在2007年前往青海密勒日巴九層塔朝聖回來後,心愿能於不丹建造一座同樣的塔寺。 隨着不丹政府一個正面的回應,上師在印度接壤邊境的彭措林購買了一幅12公頃的土地。這座兼容密勒日巴塔和寺院的塔寺(些嘎咕托九層塔)將成為來自大吉嶺、卡林蓬和錫金的朝聖聖地,以及不丹的主要佛教傳承 – 噶舉派的一個重要地標。
