There seems to be a common thread among many Montanans when they hear of the famous tourist attraction just out of Arlee entitled “Garden of 1000 Buddhas.” The first thing we read or hear coming out of most peoples’ mouths in reference to the Arlee exhibit is just how utterly “beautiful it is.”
Read their description below.
“The Ewam Sang-ngag Ling Garden of One Thousand Buddhas in western Montana’s Jocko Valley, just north of Arlee, is being created through the visionary guidance of Gochen Tulku Sang-ngag Rinpoche, an incarnate Tibetan Buddhist lama. Nestled in a peaceful valley in the land of the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes of the Flathead Reservation, the Garden of One Thousand Buddhas aligns positive properties of the physical world in a sacred architectural arrangement based on the eight-spoked Dharma wheel. This symbol evokes the turning or awakening of the enlightened qualities of altruism and wisdom. The purpose of the Garden is to bring about positive transformation within those who visit, in response to the negativity that abounds in the world today.
One thousand hand-cast Buddha statues are arrayed around the central figure of Yum Chenmo, or the Great Mother, the manifestation of the perfection of wisdom. One thousand stupas, representations of the enlightened mind, line the outer circle. Each enshrine an image of the female deity, Tara.
Elegantly adorned with native trees and flowers, it is hoped that the Garden of One Thousand Buddhas will instill lasting impressions of peacefulness and compassion. If you find this vision inspiring, please take your time enjoying what this site has to offer, and consider how you might benefit from helping to bring such a vision into reality.
In addition to being the site of the Garden of One Thousand Buddhas, Ewam Sang-ngag Ling in Arlee, MT is a center for Tibetan Buddhist studies offering teachings, meditation classes, empowerment ceremonies and traditional gatherings. An annual week long Sangwa Yeshe Drub Chöd and a LIVE webcasted International Bodhicitta Mönlam/Tibetan Cultural Festival Day are held every June and an annual Festival of Peace is held every September which welcomes people of all traditions to discuss and celebrate peace.”
Look at the some of the words in the paragraphs above. Enlightenment. Peace. Wisdom. Compassion. Positive transformation.
Buddha and his “Lamas” are imposters. All false religions rip off elements from the only true Religion (Christianity), which is the only way to God (through his Son, Jesus Christ).
Christ alone is God and it is He only who gives us peace, wisdom, and compassion and who transforms us in a positive way meaning covers and forgives our sins and helps us to become more like Himself. Jesus Christ alone “enlightens” us meaning sheds light on our sins and shows us where to go and provides true direction. Christ alone is “light.”
“I am the light of the world. No man comes to the father but through me.”
Jesus warns us that there will be many imitations, imposters, and deceivers, and “Buddha” is one. Satan even comes “Disguised as an angel of light.”
The “Garden” even has statues of pagan idolatry images consisting of sexual female body content (not shown below). This is not some family cultural event, nor should it be for adults either.
At the ”Garden” idols are “dedicated to loved ones.”
This is not beautiful in the sight of our one and only true God, Jesus Christ but an abomination.
