Title: To the lands of Estonian Prophet a Buddhist park is to be made
Publisher: Maaleht
Date: July 17, 2009
In the parish of Koonga, in Pärnumaa, in the lands of forest farm, first Buddhist buildings can be seen and the future should see it with Buddhist park similar to Rocca al Mare – Tibetan corner open to all. The founder of Buddhist Brotherhood (Taola) in Estonia in Soviet times, Vello Väärtnõu, is realizing his ideas from 1980s that were unfinished because of political situation of that time and his deportation. 2 years ago he returned as Swedish citizen to his farm in Pärnumaa that he had bought in the end of 1980s, to finish what once was started. After making the living rooms livable, the first stupa (built in honor of Buddha, marking the fixed system, dedicated to “the protection, wellfare and happiness of all beings”) was erected. 2 prayer wheels are finished and the place for buildings is marked with garlands (prayer flags) in Buddhist colors. If things go according to plans, then the area will be surrounded with 6 stupas in the future. Väärtnõu also talks about Buddhist monastery and temple for wrathful deities. Väärtnõu, who studied extensively in Buryatia and Himalaya during his refugee years, says that first of all, this Buddhist corner of Tibet is created with his kindred spirits for himself. Read more

The editor’s blue Nissan jumps around on the stone field roads like a horse carriage on wooden wheels even though the driver slows down considerably. Nothing indicates that here in the middle of the fields and forests a man is constructing a Buddhist center. Finally we see something shining-white showing from behind the trees. In the middle of the yard the visitors are welcomed by snow-white 10-meter construction with steps and a round top that catches the eye – the oldest Buddhist form of architecture – the stupa. Small colorful prayer flags flatter in the wind. Also in the middle of the yard there’s a half-way done red construction with round pillars. In front of the stupa there’s a fire temple with an oil lamp and Buddha statues, and a smoke can that emanates a sweet oily juniper smell. Read more
