We have arrived Bodhgaya..our travel was long but we are here and the power of this place is magnificent...the potential for a brilliant outcome is apparent. All concerned parties have shown great interest and cooperation in the work that lies ahead. Being here is being in a dream..and each facet of our work is unfolding at just the right time. We are so encouraged by the warm reception that we have received..and so ready to get started!!

Bodhgaya Peace Park . south garden . Mahabodhi Temple

These garden plans were developed to revitalize a disused area of the
Mahabodhi Temple grounds to the south of Mucalinda Lake.
This Peace Park will facilitate walking meditation by creating greater
connection to the adjacent areas.
The Scripture Garden will display plant species both mentioned in Buddhist
scriptures and known to be growing in the Buddha's lifetime.
Shade trees and the Meditation Houses/ Veranda allow for restful
contemplation and mindful awareness.
This plan was designed by Tim O'Shea of Greenworks Design and Davis Dalbok
of Living Green with direction from Wangmo and Richard Dixey of the Light
of the Buddhadharma Foundation International.
