This summer in an amazing act of generosity to the Garden of One Thousand Buddhas, 163 stupas have been sponsored at $200/each by a large group of citizens from Japan. During such a period of turmoil in the wake of the tsunami there, these supporters have opened their hearts to the potential of this spiritual place in Arlee, MT, so far from their own home, after having been inspired by faithful students of Rinpoche’s, Mimi and Ronnie Colsen.
Last year, these dedicated students of Tulku Sang-ngag Rinpoche inspired and followed through to help almost 150 Buddha statues to be sponsored by the people of Japan as well. What is so amazing is that while these resilient citizens could be spending their time and money taking care of their families and healing from the disasters that have befallen them, they have chosen to open up even more to care for the spiritual health and happiness for the benefit of all beings. A HUGE and heartfelt ‘thank you’ goes out to these gracious families in Japan and to Mimi and Ronnie from the Garden of One Thousand Buddhas.
