FVCC Welcomes Tibetan Monk to Give Free Community Presentation on Arlee's Ewam Garden

Just two days before the Ewam Garden celebrates its eighth annual Festival of Peace, Flathead Valley Community College’s Multicultural Affairs Office will welcome Tibetan Monk Gochen Tulku Sang-ngag Rinpoche who will deliver a free presentation for the community September 6.  During the presentation, Rinpoche will discuss his vision of and work on the Ewam Garden of One Thousand Buddhas in Arlee, Mont.

Born into one of the oldest families in Tibet, Rinpoche is the founder and spiritual director of Ewam International Centers around the world.  Rinpoche’s vision of a peace garden in a mountainous valley came to him as a small child, eventually leading him to Montana to build The Garden of One Thousand Buddhas.   During his presentation, Rinpoche will describe how students and Flathead Valley residents can get involved with the Ewam Center.

The presentation will take place at 6 p.m. in the large community meeting room in the Arts and Technology Building on the FVCC campus.  For more information, contact Mick Stemborski at 756-3945 or at mstembor@fvcc.edu.
