The Lotus Sutra

Registration closes on November 26th.

Because lotuses rise from the mud without stains, they are often viewed as a symbol of purity. Since they return to the murky water each evening and open their blooms at the break of day, lotus flowers are also symbols of strength. The Lotus Sutra is that all living beings, whether they realize it or not, have the capacity to become enlightened. Everyone, without exception, can unlock the perfect wisdom and great compassion that reside in the depths of life.

The Lotus Sutra is regarded as a religious classic of great beauty and power and one of the most important and popular works in Buddhism. In Mahayana Buddhism (middle way), it is the single most important text. It crystallizes the entire system of Indian Buddhist philosophy as created by Shakyamuni.

What to bring: a journal for notes, water bottle, and/or travel mug for hot beverages.

Fee: $75
