Garden of One Thousand Buddhas is not only extremely relaxing and absolutely beautiful, but it also aligns positive properties of the physical world in a sacred architectural arrangement based on the eight-spoked Dharma wheel. Visitors can relax and enjoy the serene space and flowers while getting a great look at the Mission Mountains as well.
The aim of the Garden of One Thousand Buddhas is to evoke a positive transformation within visitors to the site, in response to world’s negativity that abounds today. Surrounding the central figure of the Great Mother, or Yum Chenmo, are one thousand Buddha statues that are hand-cast.
The garden is also elegantly decorated with native flowers and trees, and it is hoped that it will inspire lasting impressions of compassion and peacefulness within those who visit.
People say that they didn’t expect to see such an elaborate structure “in the middle of nowhere.”
