The Great Stupa of Universal Compassion is quickly becoming one of Bendigo's places of interest to visit.
The idea to build a Great Stupa on the property in Bendigo was the vision of Lama Thubten Yeshe (fpmt.org/teachers/yeshe/). The idea to base the design of the stupa on the Great Stupa of Gyantse, was the vision of Lama Zopa Rinpoche (fpmt.org/teachers/zopa/). Lama Yeshe and Lama Zopa were the founders of the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition.
The Great Stupa of Universal Compassion, being built near Bendigo Australia, is 50 metres square at its base and nearly 50 metres high. This makes it the largest stupa in the Western World.
