MIMS, Fla. (AP) It could very well be the most peaceful place in Brevard County.

Tucked away in a secluded area of Mims, the White Sands Buddhist Center is a magnificent sight you almost have to see to believe.

A wooded path lined with positive affirmations leads to a sprawling park where towering statues encircle a quiet pond.

"Every step of the journey is the journey," a sign reads as you enter.

The 30-acre site just off Aurantia Road is near silent, except for the trickling of a nearby fountain, chirping birds and a soft breeze rustling through the trees. A series of statues rise nearly three stories in the air with intricate displays of flowering plants and paved stairways leading to their bases. The center is open daily from dawn until dusk and all are welcome, said Ron Henderson, a staff member who gives tours of the facility Wednesday through Sunday.
