About Ewam

“May the universe and sentient beings enjoy a new era of peace and happiness through the interdependent power of bodhicitta - the awakened, compassionate heart/mind. May it arise where it has yet to arise, not weaken where it has arisen, and grow and flourish forever.” -Gochen Tulku Sang-ngag Rinpoche, Founder of Ewam’s Garden of One Thousand Buddhas

The name Ewam itself brings together the two Sanskrit syllables for wisdom and compassionate methods. Actualizing the union of these two is the goal of all Buddhist practice.

Ewam is a non-profit organization under the guidance of founder and spiritual director, Gochen Tulku Sang-ngag Rinpoche. The Ewam Sangha members support Rinpoche's activities and benefit from the immense merit and enrichment, taking profound teachings from Rinpoche.

Although the International seat of Ewam and its activities resides at the Garden of One Thousand Buddhas in the beautiful Jocko Valley in Arlee, Montana, Ewam has centers in Montana, New Mexico, California, India, Nepal, Taiwan, and Hong Kong.
