Term: Dagoba

A mound or shrine in Buddhism. They contain spiritual relics such as a piece of the bodhi tree under which the Buddha achieved enlightenment, or the teeth of a deceased saint. They may look similar to Buddhist Stupas, but Stupas do not necessarily contain a relic. In the Star Wars movies, George Lucas has the wise, monk-like creature, Yoda, living on a planet called “Dagobah.”
