The Great Stupa of Dharmakaya crowns a meadow at the upper end of the main valley of the Shambhala Mountain Center.

The Nechung Oracle is the State Oracle of Tibet. The medium of the State Oracle currently resides with the current Dalai Lama in Dharamsala, India. The Oracle left Tibet with the 14th Dalai Lama after the Dalai Lama consulted him about the matter and he recommended it.[1] Prior to this, the Nechung Oracle was the designated head of the Nechung monastery in Tibet.

The Shambhala Mountain Center was designed to bring the energy of the Stupa into the lives of the people who come to visit. Like the great centers of learning and practice of the past, the plan for this mountain retreat facility was laid out according to the tradition of living in accordance with the energetic forces of the natural environment.

The Stupa is sited between two powerful landforms—the promontory, known as Marpa Point, and the steep cliffs opposite it. The power of the Stupa balances and brings together the energies of these surrounding landforms; at the same time, it embodies the wisdom and blessings of the Vidyadhara and of the Buddhist and Shambhala lineages.

The Stupa has become the heart of the Shambhala Mountain Center. Stupas are said to promote harmony, prosperity, longevity, good health, peace, and freedom from ignorance. They subdue fear, corruption, and pollution, and bring blessings to the environment in which they are built, to those who build them, and to those who visit and venerate them. In this way, they ensure that the living quality of the Buddhist teachings will always be available.

It has long been the tradition that wherever the teachings of the Buddhas have been revered and practiced, communities of followers have built reliquary monuments known in Sanskrit as stupas and as chörtens in Tibetan. And wherever they have been built, they have been regarded as sacred, for like religious /img and scriptures, they represent aspects of enlightenment. —His Holiness the Fourteenth Dalai Lama
