This park symbolizes unity of being human, universal wisdom and harmony. Herb Garden is a source of powerful herbs that are handcrafted for Lilleoru teas. These remedy teas are based on recipes made by Ishwarananda, Kriya yoga founder and main teacher in Lilleoru. The Vegetable and Flower Garden has been developed since 1993.
