Summer Progress

Post Date: August 8th, 2010

Here at the Garden of 1000 Buddhas we’ve been so busy, that though we’ve been updating our Facebook page pretty regularly, we realize we’ve sorely neglected our blog readers! To make up for this, we’ll tell the story of the Garden’s progress thus far in captioned pictures:



July: Heavy equipment arrives… 


…and promptly begins excavating the inner circle around the Yum Chenmo statue. 


The circle is filled and flattened… 


…paving stones arrive… 


…and the first paving stone of the lotus-design inner walkway is laid. 


Meanwhile, Nepali artist-in-residence begins the intricate decorative coloration of the Yum Chenmo statue… 


…and even Tulku Sang-ngag Rinpoche’s brother, Khenpo Namchak, is inspired to get in on the action. 


Also meanwhile, a grader begins to cut the spokes of the Garden’s wheel design… 


…and soon four spokes are done, on which throne walls will be built to hold the 1000 buddha statues. 


The inner circle of paving stones is complete… 


…Sonam Tsering finishes more fine details… 


…and the elements rejoice for the next month’s worth of work!
