Sutpa for World Peace

Valle de Bravo

Hidden away in the middle of Valle de Bravo's forest lies one of the most exceptional energy hubs in the world: the Stupa de la Paz (Stupa for World Peace), which is one of the of the largest and oldest Tibetan Buddhist emblems in the West.

Thirty-six meters (118 feet) tall, this structure is a monument to world peace, prosperity, and harmony. It was built in Valle de Bravo because it is an area with a high concentration of magnetic energy. One of the greatest Buddhist beliefs in relation to the stupa is that its benefits emanate for thousands of years and that anyone who touches it, looks at it, walks around it, or prays before it has access to its benefits.

Inside the sacred structure, there are valuable relics -such as jewelry, seeds, and medicinal herbs- from four schools of Tibetan Buddhism: Kagyu, Gelupa, Nygma, and Sakya. The objects were blessed by Lamas and represent the body, speech, and mind of the Buddha.

When you visit the Stupa for World Peace in Valle de Bravo, be sure to do so with respect and in silence. There are a few shrines for monks to pray and mediate in. If you wish to benefit from the energy, we recommend that you to walk around the stupa at least seven times while repeating the Tibetan mantra “om mani padme hum,” in order to invoke the Buddha’s compassion.

If you're wondering how to get to this energy hub, all you need to do is drive down the road that leads to Cerro Gordo, which is very close to Avándaro. It's open every day from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
