Eye of the Land tells the story of the making of the forty two foot high Tashi Gomang Stupa near Crestone, a remote area in Southern Colorado. A Stupa is an architectural rendering of enlightened mind and is used to contain the relics of great Buddhist teachers, transmitting the very essence of their wisdom, realization and compassion for all beings. Created over a period of seven years by a small group of dedicated volunteers, the Tashi Gomang Stupa is dedicated to His Holiness the XVI Gyalwa Karmapa, one of the foremost masters of Tibetan Buddhism. Before he passed away in 1981, His Holiness came to the Baca Grande estate, near Crestone. The Karmapa saw this inspiring location as an auspicious site for the continuation of the activities
of his lineage, and was given a grant of land. The Tashi Gomang Stupa was built to consecrate this land.
