It is over 2.7 meters high, weighs over 4 tonnes and is the largest Buddha carved from jade in the whole world. This is not just any statue, it represents world peace with the purest of intentions to unite people together. The jade buddha is on it's world tour and has stopped in Aldergrove, B.C this week. As a buddhist, the first time seeing the jade Buddha has not only brought great joy to my life but it has also given me power. It is energizing just being in it's presence. It is an opportunity I am honored to have had in my youth.
