Bonnie Tarses will be weaving in western Montana, at Flathead Reservation, in a bucolic spot called “The Garden of 1000 Buddhas.” Through the internet I found this description from a Montana newspaper:
“Visualize a 10-acre garden with a thousand Buddhas to inspire visitors of all faiths to reflect on peace and find compassion and happiness within themselves.”
And now visualize Big Sky country, a peaceful garden for contemplation, and your loom at your side! Does it get any better than this? The Dalai Lama plans to visit the completed garden in 2011.
