The need to establish Lotus Meditation and Education Center was initially identified

by Bhikkhuni Susila. It was established under the guidance of the Sri Lankan Buddhist

 monk, Venerable Walpola Piyananda, the abbot of Dhamma Vijaya Buddhist Vihara. The center is not only for Bhikkhunis but also to serve anyone who is interested in studying

and practicing Buddhism. We use the original doctrines and practices taught by the

Buddha 2600 years ago, we follow and practice the oldest version of the Buddha's

teaching in the Theravada tradition.


Our goal is to fulfill the spiritual and educational needs of people who are

increasingly interested in learning and practicing Buddhism. We encourage both

children and adults, to learn the Buddha’s teachings. We direct them to practice Dana (generosity), Sila (morality) and Bhavana (meditation).


Lotus Meditation and Education Center teachers are very knowledgeable and fluent in

many languages: English, Vietnamese, Pali, Singhalese, Burmese, Japanese, and Hindi.
