Notes and Events:

The Whispering Waters Sangha is a community of people in the North Carolina high country that come together twice per month in Boone to practice meditation, share insights and support each others’ mindfulness and meditation practices.

Our main gathering is on the second Friday of each the month from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m at the Boone Healing Arts Center. We have also recently begun meeting on the fourth Sunday at Mountain Pathways School from 5:00 pm to 7:00pm. At the Sunday meetings, there is a potluck afterwards, so please bring an item to share if you can.

This sangha is not tied to any particular Buddhist tradition and newcomers are welcome to join us for sitting and walking meditation, dharma group discussions, kirtan and other Buddhist practices.


White Cloud Buddhist Society

Address: 14821 255 Avenue S E   Issaquah WA 98027

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."
