Beinsa Douno Memorial garden – A glance of heaven

How can you describe a feeling? No matter what words are used, it can never be translated, if you haven’t felt it yourself. Beinsa Douno’s memorial garden is not a place, but an experience, an event, a state of┬áconsciousness, if you will.

There rests the grave of Peter Deunov (July 11 1864 – December 27 1944), a Bulgarian philosopher and spiritual teacher who developed a form of Esoteric Christianity. His spiritual name is Beinsa Douno and he’s a very influential figure over the spiritually-oriented people.

Making its home amongst embassy buildings in Izgrev quarter, the garden is made and sustained after a long history of obstacles and, safe to say, weird events. But in the end it’s a fact, and moreover some prophecies say that in the unknown future, after cataclysms it will become the highest point on the planet.

Please don’t confuse Beinsa Douno memorial garden with some casual park. It’s not a place to hang out and drink, but rather to sit and relax, observe splendid flowers and cheery birds, think, dream, breathe peace and hopefully get closer to the truth.

You can also read a book from the huge authorship of Deunov, as his works are often exposed right on the benches. And fate might decide you can meet a person from the other side of the world, as visitors from all over the globe come here.

Make sure you take a look at the garden from every angle, but most of all – get a different view of your own self.
