Dharma

“What Zen means by being detached is not being without emotion or feeling, but being one in whom feeling is not sticky or blocked, and through whom the experiences of the world pass like the
reflections of birds flying over water.”

Alan Watts

“Buddhism is a religion and dharma that encompasses a variety of traditions, beliefs and spiritual practices largely based on original teachings attributed to the Buddha and resulting interpreted philosophies.”

John Doe

“The existence of Karma is a core belief in Buddhism, as with all major Indian religions, it implies neither fatalism nor that everything that happens to a person is caused by Karma.”

Lindsey Jhonson

Everyone Welcome

We are a Buddhist temple built in 1982, and we are at the service of the community. Come and pray with the monks, attend our special events or just spend a quiet moment in front of our Buddha Statue. You are going to experience an internal moment of peace and joy.

Abbot & Monks

Several monks reside at Great Lotus. Their exact number depends on the current events or activities: Buddhist rites and Thai culture ceremonies. Occasionally, monks are invited to do the blessing outside of their temple - at private residences or businesses.
