DOLMA LHAGNAG (WHITE TARA)
The White Tara statue is being constructed at Mon Lumla by the Society under the spiritual leadership and guidance of H.E. the 13th Tsona Gontse Rinpoche. The main idea behind construction of this statue is to ensure peace and prosperity particularly of the people of the Mon region of India and also of Bhutan and Tibet.
A giant 85-feet high White Tara statue at the top of the Lumla’s Peak represents the perfect bestowing of her immense compassionate qualities to the poverty stricken locals of the Mon region at Lumla. A pilgrimage to the Altruistic Peak of White Tara is like visiting three nations at one go. This project was started with the fund received from the department of Tourism, Govt. of India in the year 2006. The Society has constituted the Dolma Lhakhang Construction Committee.
The project commenced w.e.f. 31st March 2006 and the construction has been successfully completed during the financial year 2014-2015. The statue was supposed to be completed within three-four years from the starting of the work, but due to shortage of the fund the work has been delayed and the date line for the completion of the statue is extended to the financial year 2013-14. The construction Committee has been fund raising for the same since the fund received from the government was utilized.
To be noted here that after completion of this project will not only facilitate pilgrimage and tourism but also open the avenues for boosting economical condition of local populace and carries the massage of world peace and prosperity. Hence, the Society and the Committee had untiringly worked towards the completion of this statue in date line.
