What is the Lumbini Garden Foundation?

The Lumbini Garden Foundation is a Spanish institution created in Extremadura on March 2021 in association with the City of Lumbini, Nepal, with the following mission statement: To promote and


Objectives of the project for the Buddhist Center


“Meditation is a silent heart, a peaceful mind for a more livable life”. kjkjkjn hkjkk Buddha.


“At the end of the day, I’m in peace, because my intentions are good and my heart is pure”.


“The past is already gone, the future is not here yet. There is only one moment for you to live”. – Buddha.

The project for the construction of the great White Jade Karuna Buddha on the European continent, in the province of Cáceres, Spain, has great importance and significance for the international Buddhist community because it allows building a bridge of peace, understanding and harmony with the West through the teachings and principles of Buddhism: Love and compassion. — Cáceres will be the universal city of exchange between the four cultures: Christian, Islamic, Judaic and Eastern.

The Lumbini Garden Project represents a milestone in the consolidation of Buddhism in Spain. It is a symbol of fraternity between different traditions, different religions and different continents. I believe the Lumbini Garden can become a bridge for the spread of Buddhist culture in Spain and it will allow people in Spain to learn more about Buddhism and its practice of serenity and non-violence.

Dr. Aleix Ruiz Falqués

This is a unique and fascinating project. Cáceres will be lucky to have such a great Buddha statue. This will put Cáceres, Extremadura and Spain on the Buddhist map once and for all. Thanks for making this possible.

The seated statue of the Buddha of Cáceres will be one of the tallest on the planet and will constitute one of the emblematic images of Extremadura that will join the Spain brand in its presence in the Asian market.

Maha Karuna

Maha Karuna, the great Buddha of Peace – The statue of this Buddha dedicated to worship will be sculpted in jade stone, a symbol of great moral standing in the Asian culture. Buddhists pay homage to jade, a practice originated in ancient China.

Holy Land

The land of Caceres, which will host a sacred figure for Buddhism, will be declared “Holy Land” by the Sangha of Asia.
