The Garden of a Thousand Buddha Statues

Every year the Tulku Sang-ngag Rinpoche along with the surrounding community celebrates the central tenet of the teachings of the Buddha at his site of a thousand Buddhas and has just has its sixth anniversary. This is place of spiritual pilgrimage where all people of whatever faith can come and find their inner peace and harmony and connect with others on the same quest. The focus is on creating a thousand Buddha statues though the act itself is not the point the purpose is by bringing together many people with a common purpose and goal and sharing these values then this brings an abundance of positive energy into the world.When it is complete the garden will have a thousand Buddha statues , one thousand trees and one thousand stupas along with healing herb garden, a pond and reflective walkways.At the current time there are 600 Buddha statues and eventually they will be arranged in the shape of the dhamma wheel and the Dalai Lama himself has accepted the invitation to bless the garden once it has reached its final goal of 1000 Buddha statues.

We at the Buddha's Face applaud this noble project and wish it best wishes that it may achieve it's goal of reaching a 1000 Buddhas and in doing so inspire the many who come along on the project and find there own lessons and values from engaging with the others on a similar journey.

Just as a candle cannot burn without fire, men cannot live without a spiritual life.
