Members of the Garden of One Thousand Buddhas to Give Free Community Presentation at FVCC

Flathead Valley Community College’s Multicultural Affairs Office will welcome members of The Garden of One Thousand Buddhas, located in Arlee, for a free community presentation they will deliver on September 12.

The Garden of One Thousand Buddhas is a meditation and Buddhist center created from a vision of Tulku Rinpoche, a Buddhist monk who founded the garden.  Rich with symbolism of Rinpoche’s homeland of Tibet, the garden’s sculpture and design is a representation of the essential harmony of the universe.

During the presentation, several members and practicing monks of the center will share the many events, teachings and opportunities available to those interested in Buddhism or meditation. Additionally, there will be a brief lecture and demonstration of devotional Buddhist singing and chanting.

Free and open to the public, the presentation will take place at noon in the board room inside Blake Hall on the college’s campus.  For more information, contact FVCC Multicultural Affairs Coordinator Mick Stemborski at 756-3945 or at
