Part of the garden is separated for meditation and silence. Here is a special tree called "Bodhi tree" "Ficus religiosa". For Buddhists, this is a sacred tree, because under the first Home tree Siddharta Gautema was enlightened about 2,500 years ago and became the "Buddha". Maybe here in this place, under this tree, you too can feel the energy and clarity that you can get there. In any case, here you can let go of all worries and problems and use the tree for meditation or rituals.

The way to satisfaction
What does spiritual mean?
A spiritual development under the guidance of a religion or philosophy.
What does one need spirituality for?
To be happy and satisfied. Spirituality improves the understanding of life issues and their relationships. The handling of life topics is changing. This creates more mindfulness and concentration.
Which spiritual path is suitable?
We can be very happy that we were born into this world as humans. It is the most highly evolved being in this universe. As a human, we have more power of thought than other living beings, so we are more apt to use this process for our spiritual development.
To follow a spiritual path you have to have a reason for it, for example the desire for happiness and contentment. Because people have different desires, different, individually fitting spiritual paths are also possible for each person, which are taught by religious or philosophical masters and teachers.
Many people wonder why they experience certain conditions in everyday life
For example, they ask themselves why they are poor, or sad? Why did I lose my husband? Why did I lose my job? Why did I suddenly get sick? Why do I have cancer? Why did I have this serious accident? Why do I always get to know the wrong partner? Questions and more Questions.

Explain why things happen like that
1. Everything happens as nature wants.
2. Everything happens by God's will.
3. Everything happens because of karma.
•Many people, although there are all these ways, have not yet found their answers to their questions or satisfaction. Lacking satisfaction, they keep searching, trying out something, and those who have not yet tried a spiritual path may be open to taking a new path.

•A lesson of cause and effect
•The Buddha's teaching explains that all situations or things happen because of certain causes: if you are not hungry, you do not eat. On the other hand, when you are hungry, you eat. When it's 25 degrees outside, do not turn on the stove.
•Every cause leads to an effect. Without cause, nowhere in this world does anything happen!
•If you observe this, you can experience it yourself! That is why the teaching of Buddha is a philosophy that can be experienced in practice.
•Listening to the teachings, or Buddha's experiences, called Dharma, tells you the connection. Now you can deal with it and see if that is correct or not. This lesson is suitable for people who can think well and who want to achieve inner contentment. They do not wait for satisfaction to come from the outside.
Buddha explains eight world laws or eight worldly conditions (Ashta Loka Dharma) that are the same for every being in the world, including Buddha. They consist of four pairs of opposites:
Profit or loss:
Material, health, emotional states lead to profit or loss, are thus increased or decreased.
Glory and honor or shame and contempt:
The reputation, the fame, the respect and the recognition of people in society are increased or diminished.
Praise or blame:
The personal value, the support is related to other individuals increased or decreased.
Joy and happiness or suffering and pain:
Personal happiness, wellbeing, satisfaction, emotions, health is increased or diminished.
These eight world laws can be experienced in everyday life every second. Buddha explains it as an effect whose cause lies in one's actions and deeds.
