In 1979, Gangadhar travelled to Japan in search of bonsai trees. He was so inspired that he made yearly trips to Japan, Taiwan, China and Korea searching for specimen bonsai trees.  During those early years, Shanti Bithi imported many treasured and beautiful bonsai trees. Gangadhar developed his own personal style and many of his artistic creations have been displayed at the New York Botanical Garden during their fall Momijigari Festival. 

Today the Shanti Bithi Bonsai Collection is cared for at our growing fields and meditation garden.
