Blue Lotus Dharma Center

Address: 7921 Forsyth Blvd., Lower Level, Clayton, MO, 63105   MO 63117
Tradition: Non-Sectarian
Affiliation: Center for American Buddhist Practice

Main Contact: Shaul Hirschmann  Email  (Phone: 314.614.7370)
Notes and Events:

The Blue Lotus Dharma Center (BLDC) is operated by the Center for American Buddhist Practice. The BLDC approaches the Teachings of the Buddha in a two-fold way: First is to present the teachings in a very pragmatic way specifically for the American community without abandoning traditional Buddhist ceremonies; Secondly we offer traditional ceremonies that are free from any one specific culture and still strongly promote the true essence, proper conduct and requirements of those ceremonies.

The BLDC supports all reasonable Buddhist traditions and offers an environment where practitioners from any tradition/lineage can come and practice. This is not meant to be a replacement for those that are members of specific lineages or orders, but rather a “home away from home” for those that may not have a center or temple near by. For others, due to the approach to the Buddha Dharma that the BLDC offers, this is home. Either way, everyone is welcome.

One of the ways the BLDC looks to support all Buddhist traditions and the community of practitioners as a whole is by seeking to invite as many qualified teachers from the various schools and traditions to come and give teachings, empowerments or talks. The intent is to not only provide insight and education but to also promote a sense of unity between the various traditions, developing insight, knowledge and deeper awareness within a safe and open-minded community.

Blue Mountain Zendo

Address: Temple - 857 Constitution Drive Allentown, PA 18015   Allentown PA 18015

Affiliation: Independant American Rinzai
Phone: 610-760-3033
Find on:
Contact: Jisha  (Phone: 610-760-3033)
Teacher: Rev. Joriki Dat Baker  
Notes and Events:

Those who are new to Zen Practice should arrive fifteen minutes early for basic meditation instructions. Blue Mountain Zendo does offer cushion sets; however, it is a good idea to obtain a personal set if possible. Having your own set will allow you the opportunity to sit both with the sangha (group) as well as alone when at home or work. Also to note, if you cannot sit on the floor due to a medical condition, chairs are an option. If done correctly, sitting in a chair is no different than sitting on the floor. An offering for the temple is traditional for those visiting for the first time. This offering is symbolic of the “open” and “giving” nature of the new student and his/her recognition of the value of the teachings.

During Zazenkai (Extended Zen Service) the han is struck for the first time to start the beginning of the service. The ino then announces the first chant and the service begins. We chant in both Japanese, Pali and English to show respect to Zens roots and lineage. After the last chant, kinhin or walking meditation begins which will continue at various times during the service. The bell is struck and the sangha sits down to begin zazen (seated meditation) practice. During Zazen we become and remain still throughout the round while watching our breath or answering our Koan. Our eyes become half closed and focused downward on the floor in front of us to avoid distractions. The bell is struck (dink) after 25 minutes and to allow new students the option to stand up and face the wall or adjust their posture. The bell is struck once again after 10 minutes, informing those who are standing to please be seated. The final bell struck is at the 60 minute mark to signal the cessation of the sitting round. The sangha then does walking meditation or Kin-hin which will last for fifteen minutes. When kinhin is completed, the sangha once again is seated. To conclude, Rev. Joriki Dat Baker will then give a Dharma Talk and the service is closed with chanting. After the close of the service, tea and sweets are served in the kitchen; during this time, questions or comments may be posed in a relaxed atmosphere.

On the second Sunday of  each month, Dokusan will replace the Dharma Talk. Dokusan is the private meeting between the zendo’s teacher and its students. Dokusan is a formal meeting and idle talk is inappropriate.

Notes and Events:

Bo Kwang Zen Center was formed to teach and propagate Zen Buddhism in the west.   Zen Buddhism, with its emphasis on meditation, is a way of cultivating compassion and wisdom through radical acceptance of what is. Meditation becomes an awareness and mindfulness of all that is, moment-to-moment and an appreciation of life in all its manifestations.

Although individuals are encouraged to become members and deepen their spiritual practice with others of this sangha under the direction of the Temple Monk, people of all faith traditions are invited to gather with us as we seek to foster greater communion and understanding among all beings. 

Retreats, workshops and classes will be offered as determined by need and interest.

We are affiliated with the Korean Buddhist Taego order; one of the largest Zen orders in the world.  We are also members of the International Mook Rim Society, a liberal Buddhist movement that strives for social justice and inter religious dialogue.
