May every being ailing with disease / Be freed at once from every malady /
May all the sickness that afflicts the living / Be instantly and permanently healed. ~Shantideva

Update! Matching Fund Challenge – double your donation to the White Lotus Building Fund!
Our WL sister, Samana Lake, has offered to match donations to the building fund up to $10,000 – in honor of her father, Edward Lake, who passed away this year. This offer is good until Losar 2021, the traditional Tibetan New Year, February 12, 2021 – when the Wood Iron Ox year begins. With your contributions we could make this a $20,000 donation. How wonderful! Thank you, Samana!
For more information on the Building Fund AND to read a message from H.E. Garchen Rinpoche concerning the future of White Lotus Buddhist Center:
Dzambhala Prosperity Vases – blessed by H.E. Garchen Rinpoche at White Lotus in 2018
These vases were filled according to traditional instructions by Khenpo Konchok Molam and White Lotus sangha members. They contain many precious substances, were consecrated over two days at White Lotus Buddhist Center, then blessed by H.E. Garchen Rinpoche when he visited in 2018.
Every purchase is a donation to benefit White Lotus Buddhist Center and it’s work.
Read H.E Garchen Rinpoche's teaching on treasure vases:
So, now Khen Rinpoche (Khenpo Monlam) has prepared these prosperity vases for the Center. This is a really wonderful thing as they bring a lot of benefit, a lot of blessings.
There are three ways to understand what a prosperity vase is. First, it is a palace for the deity. Then secondly, it becomes the deity itself. And thirdly, it is an offering. It is a source of infinite offering goddesses who come and present whatever offerings are needed or wished for. These three qualities are shared by both vases and stupas. In addition, they have been consecrated according to Dzambhala and are embued with blessings from the deity. Having one of these vases in your home, you can play the Dzambhala mantra day and night. The vase will bring blessings both to the beings in your home and the outer environment. So it’s a really wonderful thing to have a vase like this.
When we talk about Dzambhala and wealth practices, basically we’re saying that we need love because the world can be full of material wealth and yet without love there’s no happiness. So, when we say prosperity or good fortune, what we’re talking about is love because that’s what brings happiness. Otherwise, without love you can have a hundred million dollars and just be a hungry ghost.
