STUPA

info; A stupa (Sanskrit: m.,stūpa; Tibetan: མཆོད་རྟེན་, THL: chöten; Pāḷi: thūpa, literally “heap”) is a mound-like or hemispherical structure containing śarīra “relics”, typically the remains of Buddhist monks, used as a place of meditation.

The shape of the stupa represents the Buddha, crowned and sitting in meditation posture on a lion throne. His crown is the top of the spire; his head is the square at the spire’s base; his body is the vase shape; his legs are the four steps of the lower terrace; and the base is his throne.
