The merit earned and dedicated by working on the Garden of One Thousand Buddhas will not be exhausted until the end of cyclic existence.


Gochen Tulku Sang-ngag Rinpoche


When Tulku Sang-ngag Rinpoche conceived the Garden of One Thousand Buddhas project in 2000, he expressed the aspiration that as many people as possible be allowed to participate as volunteers in this sacred place of pilgrimage in Montana.

Volunteer opportunities are available throughout the week and weekends outdoors in the garden, such as weeding, gardening, and landscape work. Join our community for a fun and helpful few hours or a whole day. Great resume building item, opportunity to learn new skills and build confidence and more! Make your own hours.
