When Tulku Sang-ngag Rinpoche conceived the Garden of One Thousand Buddhas project in 2000, he expressed the aspiration that as many people as possible be allowed to participate as volunteers in this sacred place in Montana.

Volunteer opportunities are available throughout the week outdoors in Garden, such as weeding, gardening, and landscape work.

Together we can grow this garden of peace!


Dedicated volunteers are accurately replicating these beautiful images in Arlee, MT. Every statue contains the traditional central channel shaft, and sacred substances, prayers, and mantras. After casting, each statue is delicately hand-sanded and carefully cured for one month. The statues are then sealed to ensure enduring integrity.
