Dzogchen Gelek Palbar Ling is a non-profit organisation founded by Patrul Rinpoche and his students. It aims at preserving and sharing the invaluable teachings of the Buddha, through the spiritual and cultural Tibetan heritage. One of DGPL’s missions is the development of Dharma City, which hosts international study programs, meditation retreats, the Sambhota Translation Group and cultural events.

Zangdok Palri Institute in Tibet: 108 stupas
The Zangdok Palri Insitute in Tibet is an important project in Patrul Rinpoche’s activity.
It is also one of the major monuments in the Dzogchen valley: a three-dimensional representation of the pure land of Guru Rinpoche, Padmasambhava. Although the temple itself has been built with great care, the stupas above the surrounding wall have been built at low cost before the inauguration of the institute in July 2010. All 108 stupas are still there but they will definitely need to be replaced in a not-so-distant future. They will be replaced by strong, stone stupas, all carved by the same craftsman. There will be 12 groups of 8 different stupas, and an additional 12 stupas. These grouping of 8 stupas is related to major events in Buddha Shakyamuni’s life.
Patrul Rinpoche wishes to make this project a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for all his students and their families, and anyone else who wishes to accumulate tremendous merit. Building a stupa is indeed extremely beneficial for future rebirths as it leaves very positive karmic imprints in the mind. There are worldly benefits, such as being reborn in a rich family, with a beautiful body and a nice voice, being attractive, bringing joy to others and having a long and happy life. However, from a spiritual point of view, it brings enlightenment.
Every stupa is estimated at 2500€. The sponsor will have the possibility to carve the name of his choice on the stupa’s base. This could be his or her own name, the name of his or her family or any other name he or she wishes to dedicate the stupa to.
