On November 16, 2009, the anniversary of the day when Guru Padmasambhava first went to Tibet and was received with a grand reception by King Trisong Deutsen, the Eight Great Stupas were installed in the Padma Samye Ling Stupa Garden.

In preparation for the arrival of the Eight Great Stupas at Padma Samye Ling, on the morning of September 24, 2009, the Venerable Khenpo Rinpoches blessed the eight locations around the gonpa where the stupas will soon stand. That same day, four of the Lotus Thrones were installed. Learn more here.
