The consecration of the fifty brass prayer wheels performed by two Tibetan monks, Drupon Konchok Jigmet and Drupon Konchok Lhundup before hundreds of devotees and interested visitors at the beginning of Tibetan Lunar New Year holiday.
Lama Jigme who has been living in Hungary since 2004 said the prayer wheels served the need of people who couldn't read; by spinning the wheels devotees can obtain purification, and peace of mind, as the wheels radiate calming mantras, and prayers.
Zalaszántó Peace Stupa was built on the top of a 316-meter-high hill. It was consecrated by the Dalai Lama in 1993. The religious shrine is 30 meters high and 24 meters in diameter; it is one of the largest such structures in Europe, symbolizing the spirit, wisdom, love and compassion of the adorable Buddha towards all living beings.
