Personal Experience: I first learned about this monastery when there was a traveling jade Buddha being displayed here with festivities open to the public to celebrate it. The Buddha is made of a rare, dark jade that was harvested near the Yukon border. It was created by master sculptors and took 5 years to create. The statue is valued at over $5 million and has made appearances all over the world!

Since then, I have visited this monastery on numerous occasions and have only experienced kindness and grace from the people. Although small in comparison to Deer Park Monastery, which is also located in Escondido, this spot is packed with with so much beauty.

My grandpa is 93 in this photo and still going on adventures and exposing himself to new experiences.  He instilled adventure in my mom who instilled it in me.  Love this photo of him:

    I really enjoyed being here. There was so much to see if you’re paying attention. It’s small but like I said if you take your time looking at everything it can take you a while. There was only one older couple that was ahead of us so it felt like the whole place was to ourselves. Inside they were praying because we could here the chanting and instrument sound. I will definitely be back.
