1) Medicine Buddha Hill
Situated on a natural hilltop within the Kechara Forest Retreat, Medicine Buddha Hill will be an international healing sanctuary – the first of its kind in the region. Featuring a 15-ft statue of the Medicine Buddha as the focal point of healing energies, this project will bless our minds, the surrounding environment and all living beings.
