Samye-Ling Tibetan Centre

This stone structure in the River Esk at Samye-Ling Tibetan Centre is embedded with semi-precious stones and was built as an offering to the nagas or water spirits who dwell at the junction between the two rivers. Making offerings to nagas is a way of bringing environmental forces into balance. The point where the two rivers meet is directly opposite the doors of the temple and is very powerful in terms of geomancy. The Naga House also serves a function in balancing the powerful energies emanating from this point.

Close to this alignment is a shrine in Akong Rinpoche's cottage, office and conference room at the rear of the Temple.
