White Lotus continues to pray for the well-being of all …
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

News & Announcements
White Lotus more than met the matching Challenge with a total of $35,000 raised in approximately two months. Thank you to everyone who supported the challenge!
We still have a ways to go to accomplish our goal of a permanent dharma center for White Lotus and home for Khenpo Molam. 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:
Now you can donate to White Lotus while shopping on Amazon! Choose White Lotus Buddhist Center as your charity when shopping:
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.
