Rising Lotus Sangha Mission Statement







Rising Lotus Sangha is primarily an online

Soto Zen sangha,
based in the United States,
but with a global reach. 

Our primary purpose in the world is to

carry the Buddha’s legacy.

He said, “I teach only suffering


the end of suffering.” 
We do this practicing with

The Four Noble Truths,

The Noble Eight-Fold Path,

The Six Paramitas,
and The Sixteen Bodhisattva Precepts as our guides.

We accept all who want to walk

the Buddha Way

regardless of

age, gender, income, ability,

ethnicity, or sexuality.
