The Pagoda or Stupa is a repositary for the relics of the Holy masters - those who have attained spiritual perfection and realisations.

It is filled with the representations of body, speech and mind of the Realised Teachers, that is, with the figurines, clay molds (tsa-tsa), texts and relics.

Even in the Stupa's foundation there must be a lot of precious objects. Filling the Stupa in a proper manner is very important and always takes place under the guidance of the qualified Teacher.

There were many precious relics laid into the Latvian Peace Pagoda.

Since 1992 Venerable Nubpa Rinpoche has been giving various items to his first western disciple Lana Konchog Chodron for preservation: holy Texts, extremely rare relics from the realised yogis - Enlightened Masters of the past, such as Marpa, Milarepa and Rinchen Puntsog.

His Eminence Garchen Rinpoche, Chogyal Namkay Norbu Rinpoche, Nubpa Rinpoche, Thrangu Rinpoche, Dza Ranyak Patrul Rinpoche, Sogyal Rinpoche and others have written their words of encouragement and have passed holy relics for the peace Stupa Foundation.

During all this time the Teachers have kindly granted Latvian Stupa over 2500 various relics and a large collection of the Dharma Texts, including those concerning medical, philosophical topics, on the structure of the Universe and astrology. Many of those texts now exist only in a single copy.

There are also a full original volume of Buddhas Teachings –Tripitaka and the commentaries that have been originally printed in Tibet. All this has become a part of the Latvian Pagoda's Treasury and in this way will be preserved for the future generations.

In the dome of the Pagoda there is Guru Rinpoche’s statue (Guru Rinpoche means “Precious Teacher” in Tibetan). Guru Rinpoche is fully Enlightened Being, entirely Awaken, the one who’s help is particularly effective in overcoming the obstacles and carrying the light of the Teachings to all sentient beings. He gives the most powerful protection to the Root Lineage of the celestial and worldly Teachers, protects from the dark forces, defeats evil and helps in the attainment of good goals.

 There are also various precious relics located in the dome of Pagoda, some of them are more than 1000 years old. Total amount of the relics is over 2500 items, and some of them are mentioned below:

During the maintenance checks of the sokshin at the Swayambhu Stupa small fragment has been filed down.
