Lotus Blooming: Planting Zen in Siskiyou Square

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?

“The goal of our practice is to experience and be in harmony with a sense of spaciousness and abundance in life. Having a beautiful, spacious surrounding for our practice helps us to have that internal experience, and this may be experienced by casual visitors, as well. The landscaping and buildings on Siskiyou Square are an external expression of our intentions.”
– Gyokuko Carlson, Abbot & Lotus Blooming Donor

We are at 60% of our $1 million goal for Lotus Blooming Phase 1. Over half of our sangha has donated so far. Please join us today by making a gift or multi-year pledge here.
