In the center of every stupa there is a fundamental element: the sok shing. Generally, it is placed vertically in the center of stupas, acting as a sacred spine. Like every element in Tibetan Buddhism, it has a sacred value and is thus symbolic!
We completed the required ceremonies and offerings preceding the felling of the perfect tree we found at Diamond Mountain. Thank you to every staff member and volunteer who participated, contributed and made it a once in a lifetime experience!
