The stupa, or chorten is an important religious monument in Tibet. This unique form of religious architecture expresses important religious symbolism and shows the physical state of the Buddha. The chorten usually consists of three parts; a white-painted base, a white-painted cylinder and a pointed top or shaft. The square base that represents the Buddha's lotus throne symbolizes the earth, solid-state and the five powers (faith, concentration, mindfulness, perseverance and wisdom). The four stepped bases may or may not have openings. The top of the base is square or square. The hexagonal four-step base represents the Buddha’s crossed legs, and the cylinder sitting on the base represents the Buddha’s torso. It symbolizes water, the state of flow, and the seven basic conditions of enlightenment: concentration, effort, calmness, and flexibility. Mindfulness, joy and wisdom.
