“The Treasures of Buddhism” gradually developed a separate exhibition project “Wish Fulfilling Stupa” which was organised in support of the construction of Stupa of Enlightenment in Morki Village (Republic of Marii El).

Stupas are the monuments, which help keeping the peace and well being in the world. They were first built thousands of years ago in Asia and until nowadays they positively influence the power field of the universe. In recent years the stupas were also built in other parts of the world.

These impressive monuments of Buddhist architecture, constructed by the idealists, one can see in Germany, Denmark, Spain, Greece, Austria, Poland, France, the USA, Russia and many other countries.  According to the tradition Buddhist stupas are meant to transform negative obstacles in the world, contribute to the prosperity of the surrounding areas and benefit people, particularly those who visit them by conscious decision.
