Tathagata Tsal


 

Tathagata Tsal, popularly known as Buddha Park is the star attraction of Rabong, South Sikkim. Maybe it is one of the few modern marvel built in India.

Tathagata is a Sanskrit and Pali word. It is used to refer/depict to Lord Buddha. This term is often thought to mean either “one who has thus gone” (tathā-gata) or “one who has thus come” (tathā-āgata). This is interpreted as signifying that the Tathagata is beyond all coming and going – beyond all transitory process of life.

This place “Tathagata Tsal” is named by his holiness Dalai Lama. The 128 foot hammered copper statue of the Buddha was consecrated by him in 2013. It was constructed to commemorate the 2550th birth anniversary of Buddha  The Statue of Buddha looks majestic when the Kanchenjunga peeks from behind.

It is surrounded by manicured lawns. The fountains, in the form of large cups, surrounding the main shrine are beautiful. Holy chants “Buddham Sharanam Gachhami” and serene surroundings build up an enchanting environment.

The inside of the sanctum-sanctorum is beautifully decked with wall to wall murals on the life of Tathagata. There are around 1000 Buddha statues on the ground floor.

One must see while visit Sikkim. Evening is the best time to visit Buddha Park.
