Lhabab Stupa Tsa Tsa

Stupa of the descent from Tushita Heaven


»Descent from Tushita Heaven«. The Buddha's mother, Mayadevi, was reborn in a celestial realm called the Tushita Heaven. She died well before she could benefit from his salvific teachings. Buddha determined to travel to the heavenly realms to find her. He spent three months there and taught her the path to enlightenment. This stupa represents Buddha's return from the celestial realms in order to continue teaching the path to enlightenmen

This Tsa Tsa is rich in symbolism. The large central Gomang Stupa is flanked on the right and left by inscriptons. They can be attributed to the time of the Indian Kutila script - a variant of the Ranjana script - which was used in the 8th to 12th centuries.

The stupas rest on a base of single lotus petals. The upper part of the stupa is decorated with garlands on both sides. The top is crowned by a protective screen.

The design of this Tsa Tsa and the colour of the clay used clearly indicate that it was made in West Tibet.

The age of the Tsa Tsa has left its marks, but these are only visible in the lower outer areas.
