The Noble Stainless Beams of Light Sutra states:
Noble sons and daughters! Whoever circumambulates or make offerings to a stupa will be blessed by Tathagatas, move to the supreme enlightened state through a non-returning path, and purify all of their karmic obscurations. Even if the shadow of a stupa touches birds, animals, deer, or whomever, they will not be reborn in the lower realms.
Thus, in the sutras and tantras the Buddha taught extensively about the benefits of building stupas, as well as the benefits to those who support and make contact with stupas.

On April 2, 2017 at Padma Samye Ling during the One Month Dzogchen Retreat, Ven. Khenpo Tsewang Dongyal Rinpoche announced that a long-standing dream of Ven. Khenchen Palden Sherab Rinpoche and his was coming true: Today begins the carving of five New Stupas that will be installed in the Padma Samye Ling monastery meadow!
Venerable Khenpo Tsewang Dongyal Rinpoche is so delighted to have had the great opportunity to offer the Refuge Ceremony to the Yangsi reincarnation of Venerable Khenchen Palden Sherab Rinpoche, named Palden Yonten Thaye Lodro, in front of the Boudhanath Stupa Jarong Khashor in Nepal, on the morning of the 10th Day of Guru Padmasambhava known as Shantarakshita, March 7, 2017, in the presence of many devoted disciples of Ven. Khenchen Palden Sherab Rinpoche.
