The Five Elements
Garden of Harmony

The Five Elements Garden of Harmony is under construction at Drukpa Zimkhang in Manali, Himachal Pradesh, India. Zimkhang is the personal home of Khandro Thrinlay Chodon and her beloved late husband the 9th Shabdrung. This garden has long been a place of reverence and meditation for locals as well as interstate and international students.

The five elements are Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Space. These elements need to be in harmony in order to restore and rejuvenate the health, prosperity and wellbeing of oneself, family, community and global connections.

These five elements are the bases that transform our five afflictions into the five wisdoms and ultimately the five Dhyani Buddhas. By churning our ordinary afflictive habits we refine our capacity for wisdom and compassion.

This garden is an active manifestation of this process. Its’ timeless blessings infuse us with boundless compassion and spiritual healing of our heart.

Establishing a connection with this magical garden activates many ripples of positive momentum in your life.
