White Cloud Buddhist Society

Address: 14821 255 Avenue S E   Issaquah WA 98027
Tradition: Mahayana, Hua Yen/Pure Land
Phone: 1 888 726-8992
Fax: 1 888 726-8992
Find on:
Spiritual Director: Xiaobaiyun  Email  (Phone: 1 888 726-8992)
Notes and Events:

White Cloud Buddhism is a HuaYen/Pure Land tradition.

Following the teachings contained in the Avatamsaka (Hua Yen, or Flower Garland) Sutra, we stress the interconnectedness of all matter, the interrelatedness of all beings.

By studying and following these teachings, we hope to realize the true nature of things, and thus to liberate ourselves and our fellow beings from our present world of delusion, and to discover the Enlightenment of The Buddhas.

We rely upon the compassionate vows of Amitabha (Amituo Fo, or Amida Buddha) to bring us to his Pure Land, where we may realize ultimate enlightenment, and return to bring our fellow beings to that same state.

The White Cloud Buddhist Society (Bai Yun Fo She) was founded by the monk Q\\\\\\\'ing Que during the Song Dynasty (c.1108 C.E.) in Hangzhou, China. From its very beginnings, it has not been a society of monks and nuns cloistered away from the everyday world. Rather, our priests and practitioners alike live the "householder\\\\\\\'s" life, taking part in family activity and the everyday work of modern society. Priests can be female or male, married or single. Upon ordination, all priests take the Buddhist name "Bai Yun," or "White Cloud." Thus, all are indistinguishable from each other, all the same, so, in a way, it can be said that there is only one priest in White Cloud Buddhism, named "Bai Yun."
