Dalai Lama Stone

Peace City Site:

A large rock ‘mani stone’ sits at the foot of a Himalayan Pine tree. The tree was planted by His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet to mark his first visit to Christchurch, May 16, 1992.

The carving on the Mani stone is a Buddhist prayer Om Mani Padme Hum, which means “for the peace and liberation of all beings.”
