Sarana International Buddhist Center (SIBC), In Tukwila, Washington is truly international. Its altar includes Buddha statues and paintings from Cambodia, Sri Lanka, Thailand, China, Burma, and India. One of the resident monks, Venerable Pra Mahamuni Lim Sovann, and many of those who attend the large gatherings at the temple near Sea-Tac airport are Cambodian. But, the abbot, Bhante Polwatte Pagnananda hails from Sri Lanka. SIBC, which was established in 1998, is open to anyone who wants to learn about Buddhism or practice Buddhist meditation. Regular religious services are held every Sunday morning starting at 9 a.m.

There are meditation and Yoga classes every Wednesday 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. A new vipassana hall was opened in March of 2005, and the Northwest Vipassana Society conducts all-day workshops from 8:00 a.m to 4:30 p.m. on the last Saturday of every month. The annual vassa (rainy season retreat) for monks lasts for three months, beginning on July 24 and continuing through October.

The retreat period ends on October 30, 2005 with the colorful Kathina ceremony during which lay supporters offer new robes, flowers, food, and other donations to the monks. All are welcome to take part in these ceremonies.

Sarana\\\'s Abbot, Bhante Polwatte Pagnananda, entered the order of bhikkus in 1965 in Sri Lanka under the patronage of Venerable Mullegama Seelananda and Labugama Lankananda Maha Thero, and received his higher ordination in 1974 from Akurana Pannaransi Maha Thero, the Sanghanayake (leader) of the Raigama Korale (Siamese sect-Kotte chapter). He received his early education from Paravahera Pagnnananda Maha Thero at Dharmaduta Buddhist Seminary in Colombo, and later studied at Vidyaratana Affiliated University Parivena. In 1977 he completed the GCE Advanced Level Examination, in 1981 the First Examination of the Pracina Panditha degree, and in 1983 received a Bachelor of Arts degree from The University of Kelaniya. He was active in various religious and social activities in the Horana area from 1986 to 1994, and was eventually appointment as the chief incumbent of the Boddalgoda Sri Devarakshita Temple.

In 1996 Bhante Pagnananda was invited to come to the United States on a Dhammaduta (missionary) mission by a devoted Sri Lankan physician in New York. He stayed at the Maitri Viharan in Los Angeles and the came to Seattle in 1977. He was determined to establish a Theravada Buddhist center, and the next year founded the Sarana International Buddhist Center in Tukwila with the generous support of Buddhist devotees from different ethnic groups. The Sarana International Buddhist Center is located at 15241 . 51st Ave South in Tukwila, just northeast of Sea-Tac Airport.

The Chenrezig Project

Main Contact: Mark Winwood  Email  (Phone: 206 707-9944)
Notes and Events:

The Chenrezig Project is a Buddhist study/practice group in Snohomish County, WA, with a national online teaching presence, under the guidance of Buddhist teacher Mark Winwood.

We take our name in recognition of Chenrezig, the Tibetan Buddhist representation (and emanation) of perfect compassion. We are committed to using the aspects of householder life — home, workplace, the intimacy of committed relationship, the challenges of health and aging — as our areas of work. Our teachings and practices follow the Tibetan tradition and are illuminated by the American experience, respectful of all the teachings and schools of Buddhism.

We are dedicated to developing the good heart by cultivating wisdom and compassion through our studies and practices. At the core of our work is the cultivation of the wise and spacious quality known as “bodhicitta” — the deep, altruistic intention to realize genuine wisdom and compassion in ourselves in order to best help beings everywhere do the same.

We study teachings and practices both directly and indirectly sourced from Lama Tsongkhapa’s Lam-rim Chen-mo, the foundational 15th century text of teachings and practices of the path to enlightenment.

We gather regularly for teachings and/or meditations on Thursday evenings in Monroe (WA), as well as on our online (Skype) “Dharma Bridge” on Wednesdays.

All are welcome to come and benefit from exposure to this wonderful curriculum, regardless of experience or familiarity with Buddhism. Our gatherings are informative, friendly, supportive and practical. All are invited.

White Cloud Buddhist Society

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."
