A three-dimensional representation of the mandala, or celestial palace, of Buddha Heruka, the supreme Buddha of compassion. It symbolizes all the sublime qualities of enlightened beings and their environment, or Pure Land.
Constructed by Kadampa practitioners under the direction of Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, this holy object is in the Kadampa Buddhist Temple, São Paulo, Brazil. It serves as an aid to meditation and a source of blessings and inspiration for practitioners.
The design of Kadampa Buddhist Temples around the world is based on this mandala to remind us that by practising a pure spiritual path, eventually we will become a pure being like Buddha Heruka and our world will become a Pure Land.
