Description

When it was clear how the Europe Center's new large mediation hall in the restored barn would look, the wish for a great central Buddha statue formed. After receiving Lama Ole's and HH Karmapa's blessing, the project to create a 1.7m tall Buddha statue in the West began. When the inauguration of the meditation hall was approaching in August 2014 and the news about a new statue broke, everyone was excited to see what the result would look like… This short movie shows how the new Buddha statue arrived at the Europe Center, and how it was prepared and finally consecrated by Sherab Gyaltsen Rinpoche together with Lama Ole Nydahl. We want to express special thanks to Ania, Ralf and Hartmut who made this project possible.
