Nirvana Stupa in Memory of Khenpo Lama Migmar’s Late Mother, Sonam Yudon

Nirvana Stupa was erected on November 24th, 2012 in Mount Auburn Cemetery, Cambridge, MA. Sonam Yudon’s five children, led by her two eldest sons Khenpo Lama Migmar and Trinley Tsewang, dedicated the stupa to their late mother on her anniversary. It has quickly become an object for prayer, meditation, and mantra recitation for New England’s Buddhist community. Each of the four sides of the stupa is engraved with the Green Tara mantra to receive healing to overcome suffering, and the Avalokiteshvara mantra to cultivate loving kindness, compassion, and wisdom. Khenpo Lama Migmar says of the memorial, “May whoever comes into contact with this Nirvana Stupa further develop these inner qualities of love, compassion, and wisdom.”
