Lotus Blooming: Why Does it Matter?

While Lotus Blooming – our fundraising campaign to Plant Zen in Siskiyou Square – is about money, our vision and aspiration for Siskiyou Square is about the Dharma. So, why does Lotus Blooming matter?

“Dharma Rain’ on SE Madison was cozy and warm. To me, our new temple is effort and sacrifice – and I mean that in a good way. I say ‘effort’ because it inspires me to work harder to be a better Buddhist practitioner than I have been. And I say ‘sacrifice’ because it inspires me to set down and leave behind some aspects of myself I want to let go of.”
