Paia Peace Stupa


The Great Paia Peace Stupa was blessed by His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama during his visit to Paia in April 2007. It was a very historic and successful event for not only Paia but the island of Maui. Speaking to around 500 invited guests at the Maui Dharma Center, colorful prayer flags blew in the wind above the audience. An occasional brief showers passed, but the crowd stayed to hear the words of the Nobel Peace Prize-winning spiritual icon and exiled leader of the nation of Tibet.

Construction of the Peace Stupa began in April 2005 and through the generosity, hard work and efforts of the community, the Peace Stupa became a reality.
