Buddhist monument for Glenscorrodale

The Arran Banner, November 20, 2009

North Ayrshire, Scotland (UK) -- Plans have been lodged with North Ayrshire Council for the erection of a 21-foot high monument at Glenscorrodale on the Ross Road.

The applicant is Lama Yeshe Losal of the Rokpa Trust based at at Eskdalemuir in Dumfrieshire. The traditional ornamental Buddhist monument known as a stupa will sit on an 11-foot square plinth and be sited in the field in front of the retreat centre.

Traditionally stupas are structures for Buddhist worship and typically contain the remains of a Buddha or saint.

The Rokpa Trust acquired the former steading of Glenscorrodale in 1995 and after demolishing the farmhouse, built a long-term retreat centre for 21 men in 2004.

A six-foot high naga or water spirit shrine was built in the same field in 1997.
