Studying or working at the Garden of One Thousand Buddhas is a unique and unforgettable experience. The community at the garden is made up of people from all around the world. We have resident staff, volunteers, students and visitors. Every month is filled with events and activities. In all of our interactions we try to practice the Buddhist principles of cooperation and wisdom. There are plenty of opportunities for socializing, meeting new friends and enjoying the campus in addition to the classes. We are also deeply connected to the greater Missoula and Montana world of people. The garden for many locals is a place to enjoy regularly and is like their second home. Our community is open to all people regardless of gender, race, ethnicity or national origin, age, disability, sexual orientation or expression, as a sacred place to uncover their fundamental dignity, intelligence and wakefulness.
