Long Description:
Created by Ewam, an international Buddhist organization with centres in Montana, New Mexico, California, India, Nepal, Taiwan, and Hong Kong, this beautiful garden, set in the quiet and peaceful countryside, is intended to "instill lasting impressions of peacefulness and compassion". As well as the 1,000 Buddhas, the garden has been graced with a water garden and native trees and flowers to further enhance the aura of peacefulness. The garden has been dedicated as an International Peace Center.

The garden appears to be open to visitors 24/7/365.242



The Garden of One Thousand Buddhas in western Montana’s Jocko Valley, just north of Arlee, is being created through the visionary guidance of Gochen Tulku Sang-ngag Rinpoche, an incarnate Tibetan Buddhist lama. Nestled in a peaceful valley in the land of the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes of the Flathead Reservation, the Garden of One Thousand Buddhas aligns positive properties of the physical world in a sacred architectural arrangement based on the eight-spoked Dharma wheel. This symbol evokes the turning or awakening of the enlightened qualities of altruism and wisdom.

The purpose of the Garden is to bring about positive transformation within those who visit, in response to the negativity that abounds in the world today. One thousand hand-cast Buddha statues will be arrayed around the central figure of Yum Chenmo, or the Great Mother, the manifestation of the perfection of wisdom. One thousand stupas, representations of the enlightened mind, will line the outer circle. Each will enshrine an image of the female deity, Tara. Elegantly adorned with native trees and flowers, it is hoped that the Garden of One Thousand Buddhas will instill lasting impressions of peacefulness and compassion.

Dedicated as an International Peace Center, the Garden of One Thousand Buddhas supports people in cultivating inner peace and in preserving the ancient culture of Tibet. The mission of the Garden is to provide people of all faiths with an opportunity to generate profound merit, to reduce global negativities, and to bring about lasting peace. Through the use of the ancient symbols of Buddhism, the Garden awakens one’s natural inner qualities of joy, wisdom, and compassion.
