Reclining Buddha • Green Pathway

The Green Pathway is wiggling and winding. Master Lee insisted on cutting no trees along the way, since “These trees have been here before we come.”

Walking along the Green Pathway from Dao Café, there are mostly wooden stairways. Certain sections, however, are paved with tempered glass, which allows passersby tosee through the grass and flowers growing beneath, adding a pleasant surprise to the stroll.

As we approach the end of the path, there is a bronze statue of Sakyamuni Buddha in a reclining position, stately and peaceful. To the right is a stone engraved with Master Lee’s calligraphy ofjue覺 – a word referring to “sleeping” as well as “awakening” in Chinese. Sakyamuni Buddha is manifesting not only the state of “peaceful sleeping” but also “ultimate perfection.” Here is also an ideal spot for a scenic view of The Holy Statue of Thousand-Hand Guanyin at Tamsui
