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. Call James the garden manager, 406-726-0555 or write him directly at buddhabarn33@gmail.com. 

Volunteer photographers also wanted. Bring your DSLR camera to events or when visiting, high resolution photos and videos wanted. Make your offering of photographs for the vision of the garden.

To discuss how to donate your photos and videos please email media@ewamshedra.org.

Together we can grow this garden for future generations!


Dedicated volunteers are accurately replicating these beautiful images in Arlee, MT. Every statue contains the traditional central channel shaft, and sacred substances, prayers, and mantras. After casting, each statue is delicately hand-sanded and carefully cured for one month. The statues are then sealed to ensure enduring integrity.
