Buddhist Rock Carving

A blessing for Sark.

Buddhist Rock Carving

Chosen for its hard-wearing granite, this stone was carved out for the Millennium by a Tibetan Monk at the request of a lover of Sark. The inscription is a sacred Buddhist mantra, "Hail the jewel in the heart of the lotus " and offers protection against evil.

The large stone sits proudly at the end of L'Epercquerie headland, facing westward towards the other islands of Herm, Jethou and Guernsey.
