Under the guidance of Gochen Tulku Sangak (sometimes spelled “Sang-Ngag”) Rinpoche, Namchak is one member of a larger family of sanghas, or spiritual communities. Our sister Ewam is a religious, charitable, and educational non-profit that was established in 1999 under the spiritual guidance of its founder, Tulku Sangak Rinpoche. Ewam's mission is to advance and cultivate spiritual awareness in the west and throughout the world, and Ewam’s teachers offer Buddhist retreats and teachings, throughout the year. For more on Ewam, we encourage you to visit ewambuddhagarden.org.
The Garden of One Thousand Buddhas: Dreams and Visions Realized
About a dozen years ago, Tulku Sangak Rinpoche had a dream of establishing a large garden of 1,000 statues of the Buddha on the first piece of land dedicated to his work in America. He had seen that land in visions as a young child in Tibet, when he first heard of America. Today, the Garden of One Thousand Buddhas, in Arlee, Montana has been completed! To learn more, visit the Garden of One Thousand Buddhas website. The Garden and its website are operated by Ewam, one of the many non-profit entities in the U.S. and across the globe dedicated to Tulku Sangak Rinpoche’s activities.
