The major opening celebrations for the Peace Buddha for Europe will be held between the 18th and 20th August 2017.

The highlight of the three-day event will be a traditional Tibetan Buddhist ceremony during which the statue is filled, blessed and installed. The Peace Buddha will be filled with mantra scrolls as well as dried herbs, blossoms and semi-precious stones. The ceremony will be conducted by Geshe Pema Samten, a Buddhist teacher from the Tibetan Centre in Hamburg, and accompanied by various meditation rituals.

You, too, can take part in this unique event! A detailed accompanying programme including ways to get involved will be available at www.botanika-bremen.de as of June 2017.
